Badonkadonk Tank

The JL421 Badonkadonk Land Cruiser personal tank, priced at $19,999.95, has been a popular item online for quite some time now, but people apparently can't get enough of it. Designed with versatility in mind, the Donk can transport cargo or a crew of five internally or on the roof, and can be piloted from within the armored shell or from an exposed standing position through the hatch, thanks to special one-way steel mesh armor windows and a control stick that pivots up and down to allow piloting from the standing or seated positions. The interior is fully carpeted and cozy, with accent lighting and room for up to five people. A 400 watt premium sound system with PA is mounted to project sound both into the cabin and outward from behind the windows. Check it out here now.

3D-Printed Lightsaber

Sean Charlesworth, a 3D-printing fanatic, decided to combine his love of the technology with Star Wars. This amazing lightsaber was created using the same method as the original prop makers: sticking together old camera parts together. "I have a box of this cool stuff. I started picking out cool part and put them together until they started resembling a lightsaber, and I wanted something really beefy looking. These were subsequently duplicated, scaled down or modified through 3D printing to create a lightsaber. As a result, the hilt was actually based on the shell of an old camera motor, an eyepiece mechanism parts and some old lenses. Part of a hard drive also inspired him," said Charlesworth.
