The iMacquarium by Jake Harms

Starting off as a personal project, which ballooned into so many personal requests, Jake kicked off his own Kickstarter to fund a full-fledged operation that will provide completed iMac Aquariums and DIY kits as well. You can still check the kickstarter at the link below, but Jake has already hit his goal of $5,000 and then some. All that’s left now is to buy some exotic sharks and drop James Bond into it and you’re set.

The ships of Battlestar Galactica, immortalized in thousands of LEGO bricks

LEGO enthusiasts Garry King has a simple mission — to build the spacecraft ofBattlestar Galactica out of thousands upon thousands of tiny plastic bricks. So far, he’s constructed a sizable fleet of Colonial and Cylon craft.

Let’s start with his most recent craft, William Adama’s Battlestar Valkyrie from Battlestar Galactica: The Plan. This ship is 10 feet long, weighs 110 pounds, and is built out of 42,341 LEGO bricks.

LEGO Large Hadron Collider by Sascha Mehlhase

This 1:50 scale LEGO LHC uses 9,500 different pieces, taking about 33 hours to complete in addition to the 48 hours Sascha spent creating the 3D model base. This baby black-hole maker also cost 2000 euros (about $2,585 USD) in parts to build. So now there’s even more reason to fear the accidental creation of a Hell-portal on earth ala Doom. Or at least a LEGO Hell-portal.
