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)

…Whiteboard Tower Defense is fun?

Whiteboard Tower Defense

You’ve defended your desktop, but now it’s time to wage whiteboard warfare with Whiteboard Tower Defense.

Like other tower defense games, you build and upgrade towers to kill critters. It seems simple, but there’s a definite strategy involved with where you put your towers, when and where you upgrade, and how you spend your money.

Can you keep the whiteboard safe?

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Kimini 2.2?


The Kimini 2.2 is a “from-scratch, home-built, carbon shelled, mid-engined (Honda Prelude VTEC 4-cylinder) Mini.

After 3,000 hours of labor and $20K in components and material, I’d say the end result speaks for itself.
