Divoom Pixoo Max Takes Pixel Art to the Max
Having grown up in the 1980s, I have a real fondness for pixel art. There are lots of ways to make pixel art of your own these days beyond using programs like Deluxe Paint, from melting Perler beads together to making images with 1×1 LEGO bricks.

This Mini Wiener Dog Speaker Cranks Out Dachsounds

This Mini Wiener Dog Speaker Cranks Out Dachsounds
The driver in a speaker cabinet that puts out the low frequencies is called a “woofer” or a “subwoofer,” but I’m guessing this 3″ long wiener dog speaker is more about his charm and cute looks than his abilities to produce deep bass.

NECA 1989 Batman Grapnel Launcher: Ever Dance with the Devil in the Pale Moonlight?

NECA 1989 Batman Grapnel Launcher: Ever Dance with the Devil in the Pale Moonlight?
When Tim Burton’s Batman came out in 1989, I thought it was the best version of Batman yet. Michael Keaton made a great Bruce Wayne, Jack Nicholson was an awesome Joker, and Burton’s dark vision of Gotham was a fresh take compared to the campy 1960s Batman I grew up with on TV.

Hellgirl Stained Glass Window Is a Hell of a Piece of Art

Hellgirl Stained Glass Window Is a Hell of a Piece of Art
I was a big fan of the original Hellboy movies with Ron Perlman as our cigar-chomping red hero. But as much as I enjoyed that series, I’ve never delved deep into the comics, so I’m not too familiar with Hellgirl.

If Animals Were Made from Bread

If Animals Were Made from Bread
Bread was meant to be eaten, right? Well, what if your bread had four legs and was kind of adorable? Would you become gluten-free right then and there? I might think twice, but probably not. These wacky toys are based on the concept of “Living bread.”

Watermelon Venom: Deadly Deliciousness

Watermelon Venom: Deadly Deliciousness
Who doesn’t look at a watermelon and instantly think Venom? It’s hard not to, right? Well instead of just thinking it, Italian sculptor Valeriano Fatica went and made our collective thoughts reality, carving Venom’s head out of a watermelon.

Bandai’s Ultra-Realistic Nile Crocodile Model: Looking Toothy
Crocodiles: you can easily tell them apart from alligators based on whether you’ll see them later or after a while. Plus alligators have broad, flat heads with only their top teeth visible when their mouths are closed, and crocodiles have pointed snouts with all teeth visible all the time.
