Cardboard Ferrari

So you want a Ferrari, but you only have $100 to spend. Financial limitations didn’t stop these young men from Vietnam from getting what they wanted. Using cardboard, fiberglass, a metal frame, and a whole lot of effort, they built a rough approximation of an Ferrari FXX-K… and it actually can drive. They also made […]

DIY Plywood Workspace

In today’s work-from-home world, having a good desk is a must. You could buy one, or you could do what HomeMadeModern did and build one to your own exacting specifications. We love how Jessie incorporated walls and sound-deadening felt to make it her own. We’d probably do corkboard for tacking up notes.

3D-Printed Expanding Mechanism

In the 1800s, an engineering reference book showed off a pulley design that could expand its size. Angus of Maker’s Muse wanted to see if he could replicate the part using 3D printing, and along the way found a different use for it, and incorporated the mechanism into a nifty looking puzzle box.

Gibberish Song

We’re not sure how we missed this video when it first made the rounds, but it’s too good not to share. When you listen to Italian singer Adriano Celentano’s performance of Prisencolinensinainciusol, you might think its lyrics are in English, but it’s actually complete nonsense. Bonus points for the harmonica solo at the end.
