From BPerry2:

I was able to build this lamp for under $20 (US) The books cost $6, The Switch and fixture cost $7.50, and a few misc. items that was another $4.

Another successful book lamp from a dedicated user! That particular light bulb looks brilliant, a great addition to the build. If you missed the first one, here's what user Richard C made last week. Well done guys, let's keep them coming!

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.

The QTvan was especially designed for the Royal Wedding this week. Elderly folks who wish to see the happy couple without spending the night on the sidewalk can buy this caravan that's not only light enough, but made to be pulled by a scooter. Price tag: £5,500

Whoever hung up the Courtesy Phone really wasn't being very courteous.

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. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.
