Some people really love Japanese instant ramen noodles, but these people have been missing out by just eating them. Did you know that you can sculpt with them? Taishi Arimura does just that, making instant noodle warrior sculptures.
Last summer, artist Miguel Vasquez created some images that show what Spongebob and Patrick would look like in real life. The renderings were the stuff of nightmares. Now, Vasquez is back with a rendering of what Homer Simpson would look like if you ran into him on the street.
How do you create a tattoo that has endless possibilities? Just do what they do in the movies. Use a green screen. I mean, it’s going to look weird on you, but at least you can add in all kinds of special effects shots digitally.
Of all the awesome tech in Star Trek: The Next Generation, there were two things I really wanted. I wanted the replicator not for “Tea, Earl Grey, Hot” but so I could have all the snacks I wanted on a whim.
We’ve all played Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Centipede, but what if those games had been less digital and more of an art installation? Would you still be interested? This arcade machine is called “A Maze,” and is the work of artist Marco Iannicelli.
I once tried cross-stitching in an art class in school once. I stabbed myself repeatedly in the finger making my DNA part of the project. But if you can avoid the bloody bits, it turns out that cross-stitching is a wonderful way to recreate pixel art.
The greatest purchase I ever made as a kid was the time I talked my dad into giving me $5 for the school book fair and I ended up spending it all on a book that showed how to make sweet paper airplanes.
Looking for something truly different to decorate your home with? This Dinosaur Foot Waste Basket makes a nice statement in any room. That statement is, “I kill dinosaurs and this is my trophy.” It can also be a dragon foot because nobody knows the difference.
Well, here’s something that you don’t see every day. Apparently, rather than just kill this Xenomorph and take a trophy, this Predator decided to humiliate his kill and turn it into a kickass motorcycle. Now it will always be his slave on the open road.
We like our LEGO builds around these parts. We really like our LEGO builds geeky, weird, and cool. Brothers Brick has turned up a fun LEGO construction, and it most certainly falls into the weird category.
LEGO bricks can be used to create just about anything you can dream up. For instance, check out this sweet LEGO camera from Taiwan-based photographer and obvious LEGO genius Helen Sham. Some of you will know right away that it is a Hasselblad 503CX film camera, except that this one is created entirely of LEGO pieces.
Back in the day, most of the games in arcades were stand-up cabinets, but a few were sit down table style games. I don’t remember ever seeing wall mounted arcade games back in the day, but there are a handful of them available these days.
Stormtroopers seem to break pretty easily, so it only makes sense that you’d make one out of porcelain, right? That’s exactly what artist Erifyli Tsavdari of Keramiki has done here with this cool desktop sculpture, inspired by the iconic white Stormtrooper’s helmet.
Star Wars fans looking to add to their collection will want to save up their loot to get hands on this awesome Luke Skywalker rebel pilot helmet prop replica. The helmet is a dead ringer for the one Luke wore during the trench run in Episode IV, and was created based on scans and measurements from an original screen-worn prop.
Hammacher Schlemmer is THE place to go if you have some loot burning a hole in your pocket, and you want something of questionable use that happens to be awesome at the same time. This is the exact case with this detailed USS Arizona model kit.
