If you’ve been on the lookout for a colorful ‘bot to guard your desk, check out this cool handmade Slobot sculpture.
All of the Slobots made by crafter Slobot are handmade and one-of-a-kind, with no molds used.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
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.
Etsy crafter pipix whips up these sweet tees.
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.
Bacteria’s Mini Multi Arcade system mashes up a bunch of those TV plug ‘n play game systems and crams them all into interchangeable cartridges (OK, some of these are more like small bricks) that can be plugged into a single portable.
Instead of the crummy “joystick” that most of those Plug ‘N Play systems use, Bacteria replaced those with a far more usable D-pad controller instead.
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.
Each robot has a unique personality, ranging from rock star, to an amputee robot, to a Slim Pickens as Major T.J.
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.
Despite the overuse of the word “Board” in ElectroJoe’s Bendiboard Retroboard Invaders keyboards, they’re anything but boring.
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.
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.
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 spotted this on Dark Roasted Blend as part of a photo series of odd and funny mods.
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.
While I applaud this concept, I have two concerns which I must raise.
