Hendo Hoverboard, a Real hoverboard

It's called the Hendo and it's being developed by Greg and Jill Henderson for their company Arx Pax.
"It's not exactly Marty McFly's hoverboard. Now it only works on special surfaces, and the battery life is only a few minutes long. And it's tough to ride," the New York Times explains in a new video shot at Arx Pax in Los Gatos, California.
According to the New York Times:
The business plan is to develop magnetic technologies and license patents to builders, engineering firms, the Green Goblin and anyone else who might need to hover something.
Mr. Henderson may be a dreamer, but he is enough of a realist to understand that people are likely to be more interested in hovering skateboards than they are in his ideas for new kinds of building foundations.
"So no, I did not feel like Marty McFly. But you can definitely tell you're floating. That's for sure. You can kind of feel that something is lifting you," Conor Dougherty from the New York Times explains.
"We can't go over water or sidewalks yet. This is the Model T," Greg Henderson told the New York Times in defense of his creation.
The Hendo isn't even the Model A. It is currently up for funding on Kickstarter.

Gear | Video
Youtuber Visual Burrito Halloween 2014 version:
"After last year's costume went absolutely nuts, I had to make a new one that was much, much better. The 2014 version is using digitally addressable LED strips hooked up to an Arduino microcontroller which I programmed (and still learning). It is responsive to sound and has 2 potentiometers and a button in the back of one of the ears for control and a microphone hidden in the front. It has 12 modes and 372 LEDs (124 chips with 3 each).

Polygon skull mask Out of Cardboard
Gear | DIY
Etsyer Wintercroft offers plans and instructions to make your own 3D polygon skull mask from cardboard.
"The instructions and templates are designed to be easy to follow, so that the mask can be assembled by anyone, using local materials and removing the need for shipping. besides it's good fun turning a 2D material in to a 3D mask. The templates come plain white and you can decorate the finished mask however you like.
This mask is simple to make and the construction techniques are the same as my other masks. basically, if you can cut out shapes, match up numbers and tape edges together, you can build the mask. It is as simple as that. It takes approximately two to three hours to build from printing the templates to finishing the mask. The finished masks are pretty robust due the their polygon construction and will survive the wildest of parties."

An Artist Uses A Magnifying Glass & The Sun To Burn Pictures

An Artist Uses A Magnifying Glass  The Sun To Burn
Gear | Design
Jordan Mang-osan is a patient guy. Jordan Mang-osan uses wood as his canvas and a magnifying glass coupled with the sun as his medium. That’s right, he uses the sun shining through a magnifying glass to burn landscapes onto wood. The idea of burning images into wood or any other material is not a new one. In fact, it's a whole genre of art aptly named pyrography. But Mang-osan's magnifying glass method is pretty unusual. More images after more.
