Things We Saw Today: Water-Based Speeder Bikes Recreate Iconic Return of the Jedi Chase Scene

You may have seen those water-based jetpacks that were going around the internet too long ago. Well, apparently jetpacks weren’t enough for these Star Wars fans; they adapted them and made full-blown gosh darn speederbikes out of the water propulsion system. What’s more, they recreated the Endor chase scene from Return of the JediHeck yes. (via /Film)

  • Everybody loves the Mega Man 2 theme music, right? Well, do you remember Quick Man’s theme? Of course you do! Now, have you ever heard Quick Man’s theme covered… on the banjo? (via Geeks Are Sexy)
  • Speaking of classic video games, this mechanical keyboard’s color scheme is themed to that of the Super Nintendo. Blacks, purples, and greys everywhere! (via Gizmodo)

You and I and all of us know about Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s abhorrent stance towards LGBTQIA people and their rights. Well, one gay man, who so happens to share an uncanny resemblance to the Vice President-elect, is fighting back his own way: by parading around in short shorts and soliciting donations for various charitable organizations. (via The Daily Dot)

  • This excellent look at how one should categorize the “alt-right” (aka white supremacists aka neo-Nazis) over on Jezebel is incredibly intriguing, and touches on something many of us have personal experiences with: Red Pillers.
  • Some inventors in London have created a chess board that moves the pieces for you, a bit like how Wizard’s Chess works in the world of Harry Potter. Neat! (via Business Insider)
