There have been plenty cool LEGO versions of real cars over the years, but Sariel built a working LEGO RC Land Rover Defender 90 that blows them all out of the water. Powered by two PF XL motors and featuring four-wheel drive, a four-speed transmission, locking differentials, front-mounted winch and working lights, it’s possible to mistake this impressive creation for the real thing during close up shots. This isn’t an official set, nor is it for sale, but it’s one hell of a reason to pick up a box of bricks and get building.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
