Last week I issued a challenge to design a book lamp like boutique ones made by Typewriter Boneyard but for a fraction of the cost. Lo and behold, user Richard made a beauty. Using three used books and light fitting parts found at a DIY store, he built this model with two hours of spare time and less than £15. A tip of the hat to you sir for putting together such

Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet.

With a wall plug, wires, and bamboo strips you can run your electronics off the grid; saving money and the environment at the same time.

Deviant Artist Midnight Angel put together an arm blade stylized after the ones used in the Assassin's Creed video game series. Using a drawer opening mechanism, a spring for a screen door, and a throwing knife, the weapon works surprisingly smoothly. The full instructions are on Angel's page, and you can see it in action below.
