Youtuber Spiritplumber devised a cheap and relatively-simple way to extend your cell phone's battery life. Recording video on smart phones is notorious for draining your juice and he claims this workaround can last a few hours with just a couple of bucks. Or you can go the less ugly but more expensive route and just pick up one of these guys.

Also known at the Sociable, the side-by-side tandem bike has actually been around since the 19th century. Commonly used for courting couples or newlyweds, the bicycle is seeing a resurgence with hackers and DIY enthusiasts. One guide by Instructables user carlitos is a simple weld job consisting of nothing more than an extra seat, pedals, crank and some tubing. I can't think of a more perfect wedding gift.

Sun Chao, a crafstman from Kaiyuan, China, spent 4 months working on this project. The result is a fully-functional bicycle made from over 10,000 Popsicle sticks. Its inaugural ride lasted 20 minutes and easily supported his 200lb weight.

That's a lot of terrible jokes to read.
