CMM Laser shows off a nifty construction method which uses lasers to cut flexible corners into square steel tube, allowing them to be bent into custom shapes and angles all from a single piece, and without a bending machine.
Celebrate the release of one of Marvel’s best movies yet with Mondo’s Spider-Man: Homecoming 1.4″ enamel pins. Sadly, there are no May or Ned pins, but you can choose from Spidey’s homemade suit, his high-tech suit, and the Vulture. You can also get all three for $25.
Now You See It reminds us that the clothing of characters in movies are meticulously chosen or made, and not just in superhero or fantasy films. From blending in with the setting to reflecting a character’s story, costumes offer viewers many clues to better understand a film.
In 2011, Walter Mason built the world’s longest marble run out of wooden modular tracks. Now he’s raising funds on Kickstarter for smaller sets of his tracks. The Boa set works with ping pong balls (or similarly sized balls), while the Anaconda works with larger balls.

A frustrated artist builds himself a maze out of cardboard boxes, and ends up with something that works much like a TARDIS – it’s much bigger on the inside. We’re getting a Being John Malkovich kind of vibe off of Bill Watterson’s offbeat comedy. Screening dates here.
We’ve seen lots of credit card size multitools, but what makes this one different is the built in comb on one edge. Guardman’s flat stainless steel tool has box wrenches, a flat blade screwdriver, and bottle and can openers. Word has it that it’s not TSA-friendly though.
We’re absolutely head over heels for this custom built soapbox derby racer built to look like the bonkers Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE. Only this version doesn’t have 480 hp – it’s powered by gravity. Watch it leap towards the finish line at the Red Bull Soapbox Derby.
Musicians Blair Crimmins and The Hookers created this great slow jam arrangement of Foo Fighters’ track My Hero specifically for their friend’s Mom, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease. They wanted to make a version that she could dance to at her son’s wedding.
