Archives For recycling

As much as I love music, I have to admit that jukeboxes have never really been my thing.  Its not that I don’t enjoy forcing others to listen to the music I like, its just that the jukeboxes I come across never have the music I like.  Around here, the jukeboxes tend to be full of country, some classic rock and some pop.  While I enjoy some of that music, I am mainly a symphonic metal fan and of course they NEVER have any of that kind of music.  However, I still like how cool jukeboxes look and when it comes to cool looking Jukeboxes, this one takes the cake.

Whovian David Prouty created this fantastic TARDIS jukebox when his daughter requested he build something for the big Doctor Who 50th anniversary.  This TARDIS jukebox was made out of recycled UHAUL, FedEx and pizza boxes!  However, I think the most special part of this 1/3 scale TARDIS jukebox is what it can do.  It is filled with a bluetooth speaker, disco lights, sound actived LEDs and even a smoke machine!  It is controlled with a wireless remote and can get its music from an iPod or iPhone.

I wish I had the skills to build stuff like this guy!  Below is a video and a bunch of pictures of the build process.

A little over a year ago, I posted one persons Star Trek creation where they created the USS Enterprise out of office supplies like a couple of pens and a CD.  Well, as cool as that was, I prefer it when the Enterprise has a little more storage space than just 700MB and apparently I must not be the only one to think that.

Star Trek fan and geeky crafter Daniel Shankalonian decided to take an old hard drive and make the Enterprise out of it!  Actually, this Enterprise includes not only parts from a dead hard drive but bits of a dead motherboard and a keyboard too.  He was selling it on Etsy but it sold yesterday so if you were hoping to get your hands on this, it looks like you will have to settle for building your own.

Props to Daniel on this excellent and geeky creation!

Since I am in charge of refilling the pop machine at work, I have to deal with a lot of pop boxes, but I never thought about making something with them after I am done.  Sure, I could stack them up like some of the amazing pop box displays I have posted on here in the past, but it would have never crossed my mind to cut the boxes up and make something like a Master Chief helmet with them.  Well, that is exactly what DeviantART user Cyroprime has done.  This is truly recycling at its best!
