Final Fantasy III Screen Door Pixel Art: Mesh for Fantasy

Final Fantasy III Screen Door Pixel Art: Mesh for Fantasy
I’m not sure why we don’t see more classic art from old video games rendered lovingly on a screen door. The little squares on the screen door material are perfect for representing blocky pixelated graphics. All you need to do is look at this Final Fantasy III art to see that a screen door is the perfect medium.

FTL Marriage Proposal: Faster Than Love

FTL Marriage Proposal: Faster Than Love
The only thing that occurs in FTL: Faster Than Light more often than branching dialogues is agonizing defeat. So credit Redditor oft_wears_hats for using the game to propose. He made a custom patch for the game and applied it on his girlfriend’s copy while she was taking a bath.

Handiheadset: Talk to the Hand
Holding a mobile phone up to their ears for the entire duration of an hour-long call is the leading cause of wrist strain for mobile users today. Okay, so I just made that stat up, but doing so isn’t really something that people enjoy doing.

Transformers Engagement Rings: AllSparkles

A couple of years ago we featured a Decepticon engagement ring that Gipson Diamond Jewelers made for a lucky bride-to-be. It turns out Gipson has an Etsy shop where you can get that same ring as well as two other Transformers-themed rings.

Own Your Own Viking Ship!

Own Your Own Viking Ship!
If you have ever wanted your own Viking ship, now is your chance to buy one and sail the high seas. If you have a spare $400,000(USD), that is. With that kind of money, you’ll want to get some armor, a horned helm and take some friends, as you sail toward your next battle.

Dressed to Kill: Nixxi Rose’s Killer High Heels

Dressed to Kill: Nixxi Rose’s Killer High Heels
Designers draw inspiration from their passions and interests, and from random things that catch their eye. The former was probably true for jewelry and shoe designer Nixxi Rose when she came up with this series of to-die-for footwear featuring the likes of the previously seen Iron Shoes (inspired by the hit show Game of Thrones) and the Krueger Heels (which were inspired by – you guessed it – Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger.)

Flag It: Vittel Refresh Cap Reminds You to Stay Hydrated
Some people can’t live without their phones. Others can’t live without their game consoles. Then there are those who can’t let a minute go by without checking Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. But if there’s one thing each and every person truly can’t live without, it’s water.

Rock Simulator 2014: Pet Rock 3.0

Rock Simulator 2014: Pet Rock 3.0
First there was the Pet Rock. Then came the USB Pet Rock. On the virtual side of humor came the parodies of simulation games, which reached their height – or nadir – with Goat Simulator. Like two of the corniest tectonic plates rubbing against each other, these two sides merged to form Rock Simulator 2014.

So a White Walker Walks into the John Snow Pub…
Sometimes life is stranger or just as strange as fiction. Take this pub in London for instance. It’s the Jon Snow pub. You know nothing, Jo(h)n Snow…pub!

SocialPlanes: Paper Planes to Physically Send Social Media Messages

SocialPlanes: Paper Planes to Physically Send Social Media Messages
The weird thing about social media is that it’s not really that social in the personal sense. Sure, you can connect and message with friends and acquaintances, whenever and wherever they might be.
