It doesn’t make the kind of sticky mess that Stretch Armstrong did, but it’s still fascinating to watch this bucket of weird golden goo as it runs between every blade of PressTube’s industrial shredder. At one point, the gunk that emerges looked kind of like brains.

Toy replicas of Dragon Ball Z‘s iconic Saiyan Scouter are a dime a dozen, but most of them use a headband to stay on your head. Foam lover Odin Abbott used craft materials to make a Scouter that hangs on his ear. The key is to add a piece that’s similar to earphone grips.
Another fantastic LEGO kit, this 1686-piece CREATOR set lets you build a model of one of London’s iconic double-decker buses. It’s got detailed signage, plenty of interior seating on both levels, a removable roof, a spiral staircase, and little objects left behind by passengers.
