From Groot swings to jetpacks, 2014 goosed our geeky hearts with zombie-proof cabins, comets, "Star Wars" and delicious crowdfunded potato salad.
On today's show, we celebrate our 100th episode with Disney Research's incredible animations of the human eye, a hoverboard you can make at home, and a 3D-printed dress that looks like fabric in motion.
The Kinematics dress from Nervous System was just inducted into MoMA's permanent collection, and it's no wonder why: 2,279 interlocking, 3D-printed triangles connected by 3,316 hinges makes this dress shift its shape as if it's rippling in the wind as its wearer walks by.
Meet Mr Hoverboard, a small hovercraft you can ride on any flat hard surface. Bonus: you make it yourself from leaf blowers.
This week on Crave, we become DIY dentists with Toothscan. We learn to build a crossbow lightsaber like the one pictured in the new "Star Wars" trailer. And while you have your DIY cap on, why not learn to build a hoverboard out of common yard gear. It's DIY day on Crave.
A working hoverboard inspired by "Back to the Future: Part II" uses leaf blowers to glide over the ground. And you can build your own.
Tony Hawk visited the Arx Pax labs in Los Gatos, Calif., to take a spin on the Hendo hoverboard.
This week on Crave, we can see sound waves. We might get to see an unexplored part of the moon. But most of all we get to see Tony Hawk finally ride a real hoverboard, no hoax this time.
You don't have to daydream about "Back to the Future" to ride a hoverboard. Hendo Hover, with the help of Hawk, hopes its Kickstarter campaign will bring this high-tech fun to the masses.
Bridget Carey returns to the show to talk about ApplePay double-charging some Bank of America customers, a new Kickstarter for a company that created a working hoverboard and the recent controversy over Toys R Us selling Breaking Bad action figures.
