Bird Buggy
“Bird Buggy allows my trained parrot to “drive” around the house.  When it’s time to put the bird away, Bird Buggy is able to dock itself to a base station utilizing a web camera.” The YouTube video is great, but make sure you also visit the project page.
Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin
Riusuke Fukahori creates these miniature scenes of swimming goldfish by building up layers of resin and creating the fish out of layers. It’s hard to explain – follow the link for a video that’ll demystify the process.
Robot Dragonfly
File this under “holy crap I think I’m living in the future”. This indiegogo project is offering up a mind blowing robot that’s flies like a bird, hovers like an insect, and fits in the palm of your hand. Un-freakin’-believable.
The Super Supercapacitor
Ric Kaner used graphene, one of the very thinnest and strongest materials on earth, to create a biodegradable super-capacitor.
Taming Your (Solar) Limpet
LetsMakeRobots user Gareth has made, for the lack of a better description, solar-powered limpet. It looks like he’s using an SCC3733 to make his trimet-like critter. Make sure to follow the link and check out the YouTube videos.

I NEVER ATE NO COOKIE.

addendum from THE BOSS. Chris, if you’re gonna throw Hexadecimal puzzles at our viewers, how about a HINT, hmmm? Or people (like THE BOSS) are going to think we’ve been hax0r’d. NOW WHERE’S MY COOKIE?!?
