Bahaha... "Insta-Graham" cookies. Pure silliness, but so nerdy, I just might have to make some.
The way I see it, there's a geek in all of us. Maybe you're crazy about robots (ahem), photography, coffee, or even your iPhone -- and chances are you know someone just as geeky, too. Celebrate their nerdy obsessions with a gift they'll truly love!
This DIY goes out to all the design-minded, technically inclined, color-loving Mac geeks. You are a beautiful and unique snowflake -- and so is your laptop!
I had a good chuckle when I first spotted this "DIY" iPhone case. It's a little bit kitschy, a little bit genius, and a whole lot of random. But what I really want to know is, what do you guys think?
Tipnut collected 16 free tutorials and patterns for iPad and Kindle covers to help you get moving on those handmade gifts for your friend and family. The gadgets are so close in size, you can adapt the patterns to fit just about any similar sized device.
Cooking is inherently a DIY thing, but these 10 projects kick the food-making experience up a notch....or ten.
Jeesh, I was tickled pink when my computer crazed husband decided to share some of his beloved technology with me. He pulled up a chair and showed me this futuristic roll-upable PC. Two years ago I wouldn't have believed it. It's a roll-up notebook that uses OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) technology. In other words, the screen can be very, very thin. Thin enough to roll up and sling over your shoulder like a little tube. Just watch the...
A simple, bold design for fans of typography, cocktail, and cleanliness!
Its incredible to check out the different features of typefaces once you blow them up - especially in symbols and punctuation. And as you can see above, these differences and subtle curves look mighty fine under a cold drink.
Home use and DIY projects, geek crafts, handmade toys...there's nothing wrong with keeping a few neodymiums in your tool box. The clever team at Evil Mad Scientist have assembled seventeen helpful uses, with original photographs!

Form follows function and the form of the Soundshelf literally functions as a piece of furniture, well, if you consider a bookshelf to be furniture. Designed as a L-shaped shelf or a standing DVD tower, both styles are modern and sleek.
Those geeky geniuses at EvilMadScientist don't post nearly enough...but everytime they do, they nail it.
Combining an LED throwie, a square of acrylic, and some Christmas cheer, they've created these edge-lit holiday cards that glow and leap off their background.
And it's the kind of tech-y project that should scare ya. Really, I think I'm going to try this one.
This year, make your e-waste into something celebratory with this collection of handmade geek tree ornaments from GEEKWARE. Currently in five parts (though expect some updates, as apparently, there's 100!!!), these how-tos include everything from ribbon cable Stars of Bethlehem to santa mice to my fave, keyboard key word ornaments.
Check them out here. The contrast between the techno-recyclables and the natural Canadian greenery is stunning.
Whether you want to add them piece by piece or "cheat" by nabbing the mosaic sheets, tiling will never be this fun again.
"For years people have asked us to come up with a fun and colourful alternative to normal everyday tiles. So in 2007 we set about making Tetris Tiles and testing them in our friends homes. After a series of compliments and “where did you get those?” we knew that there was enough of a demand to get started. And so here we...
No more jangles: this brilliant hack from Pyro222 (inspired thusly here) custom fits all your keys into a compact Leatherman/multitool. The design even allows you to leave in a few tools and bits in the case for when the time arises.
Leatherman Micra - find an inexpensive copy at the hardware store
Keys - Make copies!
Something to cut the keys with, like a Dremel with a cutoff wheel.
So, I've admitted this here before: I've never gotten around to seeing Star Wars. And, to be honest, I don't really like cantaloupe. But with a knife, a cantaloupe, and five minutes, you can have your very own planet-killing super weapon that even I could get into. Clever.
From bowling balls to pies to pink erasers, makers everywhere are getting more creative in customizing their portable USB drives. Here's a few clever mods to make your flash a little funky.
There are probably geeky communities in which I could ask this, but I hope some of the Curbly technogeniuses might have some ideas:
So, I just got a new Mac Book Pro, and I'd like to hook it up to my LCD television. (To get better use out of it, since we rarely watch TV [it was a Christmas gift]). I'd like to use the larger viewing area for Photoshopping and hopefully some video editing in the future...and of course, Curbly posting!
The TV has a...
Please don't crucify me...but I've never seen a Star Wars movie. I always meant to, but it just hasn't happened yet. I did start the first one (or the fourth one, I guess) in college, but I fell asleep, and my friends wouldn't tell me what I missed.
Still, even I can appreciate these Star Wars paper figures. It's not clear whether it was a single artist or a collective of creative geeks, but it's some fine paperfolding, indeed. I can even...
