Starbucks and Nike Partner Up for Coffee-Themed Sneakers

This might come off as an insult to die-hard sneakerheads but two unlikely brands have come together for a mashup that we’re not quite sure how to feel about.

World’s Largest K’NEX Ball Machine

Commissioned by Brickmania Toyworks in Minneapolis, Austin Granger, 23 year-old computer science student at the University of Minnesota, created the world’s largest K’NEX ball machine. The machine is 278 meters long and is made up for 126,285 K’NEX pieces. That’s doesn’t even include the countless balls running around the track.


Giant Flaming Jenga

The folks at Vat19 wanted to introduce their Giant Jenga in a dramatic fashion — by setting it ablaze. Watch as they light their set on fire and play a game with the help of a fire retardant goo on their hands. We hope this goes without saying, but please don’t try this at home.


Turn Plastic Bottles into Ropes with the Plastic Bottle Cutter

Pavel and Ian thought of a clever solution to recycle plastic bottles. The Plastic Bottle Cutter is a pocket-size tool designed to reuse and recycle all kinds of plastic bottles by turning them into convenient and handy plastic ropes. They only needed less than $10,000 on Kickstarter to make this tool a reality, but the duo already raised more than $340,000 after going live with the campaign.
