Instructables user dhouggy wanted to ride his bike indoors but didn't want to pay hundreds of dollars for a trainer or professionally-made roller. So with a couple 2x4s and some PVC pipe he was able to craft this working homemade model for just $50.

Instructables user PDRWLSN created this pocket-sized flame thrower not because it's freaking awesome, but to as a way to start a quick fire when you're camping and only have access to wet wood. The gun uses materials readily available at any hardware store with butane lighter fluid as a fuel source and a BBQ ignition switch as a trigger. Below is a video showing the machine failing to melt snow. If any of you are crazy enough to try this, please, be safe.

Eric Streenstra has created quite the paragon of green energy. And yellow energy. And blue energy. And red energy. You get the idea. This go-kart is still able to... well... go, while being made almost entirely out of LEGOs. I just hope that doesn't include the pedals. I think you know why.
