Image Cache: This wonderful photo series comparing the size of things by Kevin Wisbith is a really fun way to earn some brain wrinkles, because it gives you a better sense of the true size of random buildings, ships, machines and other objects. You get to see things like the Death Star hover over Florida in space, a B-2 bomber stretch across the width of an entire football field and the Titanic lay out on top of a freaking aircraft carrier.
Spin Master has been doing some wonderful things when it comes to Star Wars toys, including a giant BB-8 that does almost everything the movie version did. But if space battles are more your thing, the company is releasing two new Air Hogs sets that let you recreate the space battles from the movies.
Video: To help celebrate his three-millionth subscriber, YouTuber Colin Furze, the creator of the thermite cannon and questionably-safe hoverbike, has successfully topped all of his inventions to date by building his own miniature Death Star covered in 58 boxes of fireworks all wired together for one magnificent 20 second spectacle.
An unknown breakthrough in consumer levitation technology has led to an influx of floating speakers that don't sound any different, but look kinda cool — were this the mid-'80s.

After the release of the Rogue One trailer, the internet was abuzz with theories that parts of the new Star Wars film were filmed in a London Tube station. Which is, of course, not true.

There's probably a good reason — involving lawsuits and lawyers — why toymakers don't include working superlasers on their Death Star playsets. But since Patrick Priebe doesn't plan on selling his Death Star replica to the public, he had no qualms about including a terrifying 84-watt laser.
It's common knowledge that Death Stars are wildly expensive weapons of mass destruction. What we didn't know — until now — is that destroying two of them would bankrupt the Galactic Empire. Apparently Luke and his small band of Rebels didn't crunch the numbers, either.
When the ultimate weapon in the galaxy — even one that's far, far away — is casting a soft glow on your slumbers, how could you possible have a bad night's sleep? A Death Star night light will not only keep the Rebellion out of your dreams, but also the bogie man and that monster living under your bed.
Who of us hasn't lamented the fact that a late night trip to the beach for an evening swim can never include a beach ball for fear of it going missing in the dark? The folks at Swim Ways obviously have, because they stuck a motion-activated LED inside this inflatable Death Star beach ball so it's visible all night long.
If you don't already have tickets, a hotel room, or flights booked to Anaheim for the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California, this week, it's time to suck it up and come to terms with the fact that the only way you're going to get your hands on exclusive merchandise like these Death Star rearview mirror hanging "dice" is to spend a small fortune on eBay in a week.
