This Tweak Puts CarPlay On Your iPhone Without An External Screen

The CarPlay interface is undoubtedly better for using while driving than the regular ‘ole screen.

But this tweak gives you an idea of what CarPlay would look like running on just your handset.


How To Transform Bullet Shells Into Earphones

Video: I love seeing the folks of Inspire to Make do their thing because they take small little objects and creatively turn them into something else entirely.

When I saw the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it felt instantly familiar.

Guy In Wingsuit Flies Impossibly Close To The Ground

Video: I thought this wingsuit guy flying so close to the ground was going to crash multiple times. I held my breath and closed my eyes and stressed myself out anticipating the worse and still can’t believe he pulled it off.

Disney's Super-Realistic CG Eyeballs Are An Uncanny Valley Airlift

These Traffic Lights Let You Play Pong With Random Strangers

Two years ago, three German design students set out to solve the most first-world problem that ever was: what to do when waiting to cross the street. Their solution? A system that lets you play Pong with pedestrians on the other side of the street. A few years and one re-branding later, their system is bettering real-world lives in Hildesheim.


These Microneedles Would Be So Much Better Than Injections

Injections kinda suck for regular adults, but for babies — who need a lot of them! — they can be downright dangerous. But by using many more, much smaller needles, life could be made better for fragile babies and scaredy-cat adults alike.


Magnets Can Attract Your Cereal, And This Is Why

Video: I know most of the food we eat contains iron to some extent. And I also know that iron is vital to keep us going. But watching this awesome science experiment where corn flakes get attracted to a magnet creeps me out a little.


This Device Lets You Shoot Fireballs From Your Hands

The technological complexity of most amateur magic tricks often doesn’t develop past the “plastic-bag-inside-a-newspaper” level and that’s because beyond this point, both cost and difficulty quickly become limiting factors. If you’re happy to embrace the challenges, however, you can get some pretty neat stuff like, uh, plastic-coated playing cards. Only kidding — for less than $US200, you can launch fireballs from your hands.
