Pixel Drink Coasters: Punch Out Your Own Art

Pixel Drink Coasters: Punch Out Your Own Art
These fun drink coasters may just look like an abstract dot pattern on the surface, but thanks to some cleverly placed perforations, you can actually make your own custom pixel creations out of them. Each coaster is made up of 110 individual 1cm square “pixels” which are perfed in a way that lets you selectively remove blocks from each square.

Video Game Belt Buckles: Keep Your Pants on, Pal.

Video Game Belt Buckles: Keep Your Pants on, Pal.
Other than maybe one of those giant glitzy wresting belts, I can’t think of a more rockin’ thing to wear around your waist than one of these nifty retro video game belt buckles. Handmade by artist Natalie Hutcheson (aka “HutchMe”), these metal buckles don imagery of famous icons of classic arcade games.

Pong Watch Will Entertain You on Long Bus Rides

Pong Watch Will Entertain You on Long Bus Rides
This homemade Pong watch will entertain you with retro gaming moves while informing you of the time. The idea is inspired by Buro Vormkrijgers and his Pong Clock. You can’t control the game, but rather it’s a Pong game in which every minute the right side scores a point, and each hour the left side scores a point.

These Hyperlink Hands Are Big and Full of Yarn-Y Goodness

These Hyperlink Hands Are Big and Full of Yarn-Y Goodness
“Hyperlink” is a series of oversized yarn sculptures that depict our favorite handy friend, the hyperlink hand cursor. There are four cursor sculptures in the series. They are rendered in three dimensions and made more colorful than we’re used to.

Wear Your Geek on Your Sleeve – Literally

Wear Your Geek on Your Sleeve – Literally
I hate the misuse of the word “literally” but in this case I will tell you that you can literally wear the word “geek” on your sleeve. And you can do it with computer keyboard letters, too.

Bacteria Gives Life to Mutant Mini Multi Arcade System

Bacteria Gives Life to Mutant Mini Multi Arcade System
I have a dream. And that dream is that one day a single portable gaming console can play all of my favorite arcade classics (on a decent sized screen). Thanks to a modder going by the name “Bacteria”, that day is today.

Toby Fraley’S Robot Sculptures Rock (and Light Up)

Toby Fraley’S Robot Sculptures Rock (and Light Up)
I’m a sucker for robots – and I love cool lamps. So when I saw these cool robotic sculptures that light up, I just had to write about them. Handcrafted by Pennsylvania artist Toby Atticus Fraley, these robot sculptures are assembled from vintage found objects (aka “Junque”), and lovingly reconfigured by Fraley to form one-of-a-kind artworks.

Space Invaders Bendiboard Keyboard: Who Says Aliens Are Inflexible?

Space Invaders Bendiboard Keyboard: Who Says Aliens Are Inflexible?
Just weeks after I got my hands on my new light-up LED keyboard, now I’m drawn to a new keyboard that I think I need on my desk. The ubiquitous invaders from space have adorned many a product, and now you can think about those aliens every time you sit down at your computer to type a memo or surf the web.

Dear Edi Lamp Revamps Edison’S Classic Lightbulb

Dear Edi Lamp Revamps Edison’S Classic Lightbulb
This modern, minimal lighting fixture from designer David Abad takes queues from a traditional incandescent lightbulb, but the resemblance is only skin deep. Created for Spain’s DAB Light Works, the bulb-shaped Dear Edi (a nod to Thomas Edison) lamp is actually made from metal, not glass.

Cassette Tape USB Hub Won’T Play, Pause or Rewind

Cassette Tape USB Hub Won’T Play, Pause or Rewind
I can’t think of any better way to connect my mix tape USB flash drive to my computer than to plug it into this retro cassette tape USB hub. The 4-port USB 2.0 hub may look exactly like an old school cassette tape, but I can pretty much assure you that you’ll wreck your tape player if you attempt to pop this thing in and listen to it.

Djs Can Scratch on the Go With This Record Player Mashup

Djs Can Scratch on the Go With This Record Player Mashup
This is what appears to be a vinyl record player in an unholy marriage with a handbag, rendering it ready and available to meet all your portable scratching needs. What’s interesting to me is that based on the photo I think there’s a good chance this thing actually works.

I was looking for a gift at Diesel and came across these sweet new (albeit behemoth) watches that have not one, not two, but FIVE faces to handle your different time zones.They’ve got a spot for LA, NY, London, Paris, and Tokyo.
