This one-of-a-kind vehicle cost more than $1 million to build and can transport up to eight passengers in pure luxury, thanks to four 28-inch wheels attached to a wingless Learjet fuselage. The project was in the making for 12 years, and is the brainchild of designer Dan Harris and co-owners Frank DeAngelo and Dima Kashevatsky. Both wings had to be removed for the vehicle to become street-legal, but the jet engine nacelles remain, and house two 12-inch subwoofers surrounded by neon lights. When you’re ready to step inside, a set of fold-down stairs drop down, where neon lights illuminate the interior, alongside a large TV screen, more speakers, and a host of amplifiers. In the cockpit, there’s a single driver’s seat and four monitors on the custom dash. Read more for a video and additional information.
This creative mod transforms the recently released Resident Evil 2 remake into a first-person, survival horror game, abandoning the “over-the-shoulder” third-person perspective. Created by modder “praydog,” players can easily switch between first-person and third-person using the in-game menu. Unlike the 1998 original, this remake features Leon without large shoulder pads, which were added to distinguish his original, low-polygon model, while preserving the claustrophobic feel.

Let’s face it, Apple’s AirPods are quite easy to lose, especially if you don’t put them back in their charging case immediately after use. Gabrielle Reilly, a 22-year-old paralegal from Virgina, has come up with an interesting solution. “I absolutely refuse to lose them. My cat ate through two pairs of Beats Bluetooth earphones, and all my other earphones. So I got the AirPods because there was no wire for her to chew but I still needed something to connect them. So I made earrings. I also have a chain necklace that I used to connect them. It took me maybe around an hour to make the earrings because I had to custom-make the piece that connects the AirPods to the earrings,” she told Buzzfeed.

The Raspberry Pi 3 mini computer can be used for many projects, including building portable game consoles, like the one you see above. This modder crammed one of these into an original DMG-01 Game Boy, complete with an IPS 3.5-inch display, 6 face buttons, L&R plus buttons, and even an Analog Stick. It can easily run N64 games to many arcade classics, thanks to its 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-band wireless LAN, and Bluetooth 4.2/BLE in the same mechanical format as the Raspberry Pi 1 Model A+.

Your eyes aren’t playing tricks, Mod DB user “Exkodius” is trying to recreate The Legend of Zelda in the Doom engine. In other words, the classic 8-bit game can now be played in a 3D perspective. Unfortunately, the programmer does not have the time and / or resources to complete the project, so files, along with a demo, were released onto the internet. “I really hope someone with the passion or just the know how can have some use of this and maybe even finish it?,” said Exkodius.
