    The Xbox Puzzle Solved by FLEB (Video)

    Buckle up folks, because this is going to get confusing.

    LEGO Nerf Maverick REV-6: A Functional Nerf Gun Made From LEGO (Video)

    LEGO and Nerf, at first glance anyway, would seem to be fairly polar from one another thematically.

    Letrons: Real-Life Transformers Made From Real Cars (Video)

    Transformers, while a serious boon to the toy and Michael Bay movie industries, are generally thought to be restricted to the realm of fiction. But a company called Letrons has constructed a real Autobot that appears to transform from a BMW 3 Series coupe to a 15-foot-tall robot. Believe it or not, folks. It’s probably […]
