Lego Architecture Studio

Unlike your average set, the Lego Architecture Studio ($150) doesn't come with a step-by-step instruction manual — instead, it comes with a 270-plus page guidebook filled with architectural history, design techniques, and exercises, edited and endorsed by professional architects. It includes over 1,200 white and transparent bricks, slopes, plates and more, letting you focus on your designs rather than color schemes. Recreate famous buildings by Gehry, Wright, Sullivan, or come up with your own masterwork. Your imagination and supply of bricks are your only limitation. [Scouted by Paul]

  • Bacon Playing Cards

    From the Baconery — the guys who brought us 23k Gold Chocolate Bacon — comes another bacon creation, Bacon Playing Cards ($10). Operating under the correct assumption that everything is better when you add a little bacon, they have created a completely bacon-themed set of playing cards, manufactured by the United States Playing Card Company (the same company responsible for Bicycle and Bee cards). The deck features cute pig face cards, colorful designs, and quotes about that perfect meat. No matter what game you play with them, we recommend enjoying it with a side of bacon.

  • Ziphius Aquatic Drone

    Just because your name isn't James Cameron (explorer of the sea), doesn't mean you don't deserve to discover the ocean. And if you can't afford your own deep-water submersible, but still hear the call of the deep, the Ziphius Aquatic Drone ($245) might better fit your budget. With two powerful turbines, it can move across the water at speeds up to 6mph, for up to an hour, controlled entirely by an app on your tablet or smartphone. A 720p HD camera lets you capture video and photos, so you can record sailing, surfing, and swimming adventures, or stealthily observe life underwater.
