Helberg: A Bionic Hand Made From One Keurig Coffee Maker

If you have a Keurig K350 coffee maker, 200 hours of free time, and a LOT of creative skills, you can turn the disassembled parts of that coffee maker into a functioning bionic hand:

According to Evan Booth, the creator of “Helberg”, the build details are as follows:

  • One single Keurig used (K350/300 2.0 Brewer)
  • The only non-Keurig materials are adhesives and the 12v external power supply
  • Used basic tools—rotary, heat gun, common hand tools, etc.
  • No plans… just a general idea of how things should be constructed
  • Build time: 199 hours, 56 minutes, and 36 seconds (read: hands on things)

Ico Bottle Opener

Ico Bottle Opener

Having a unique bottle opener can elevate any drinking opportunity to the next level, and this Ico Bottle Opener from Fort Standard out of Brooklyn is guaranteed to stand out.

Made from 3D printed matte black steel, this complex design showcases the full potential of 3D printed steel, as the design would not be possible to produce as a traditional casting.

Each of the 100 limited edition pieces is produced on demand, and comes with a unique serial number and certificate of authenticity.

FieldCandy Custom Design Tents

FieldCandy

The ‘design-led’ tents from FieldCandy inject color, creativity, and fun into the camping experience by taking the standard tent design and giving each one a fun story to tell.

Don’t let the designs fool you though; these are also high performance tents, made to keep you dry in the rain, warm in the cold, and comfortable in the wind. Plus, the cotton inner tent doesn’t attract condensation the way that most modern tents do.

I’d imagine the one downside is that they don’t look quite as picture-perfect when you pitch one at your local camping spot as they do on the website, but even if it’s just good for a few good laughs every time you set it up, I’d say that’s reason enough to give FieldCandy a try.
