Umbrella Corporation Umbrella Keeps Rain Off Your Zombie Head

Umbrella Corporation Umbrella Keeps Rain Off Your Zombie Head
Are you a biochemist who works for a certain pharmaceutical company that for the past 12 years has been making viruses that turn people into zombies? If so, then you’ve  probably received an Umbrella Corporation umbrella, maybe for Christmas, or when you were hired.

LEGO Reindeer-Bot Brings Creepy to Christmas

LEGO Reindeer-Bot Brings Creepy to Christmas
While no one can fault the crafstmanship or creativity of this Lego Reinbot, there’s just something about him that’s a little lacking in joviality. He’s got sinister style in spades, though, and while I like him, I’m pretty sure he thinks I’ve been naughty. Maybe it’s the giant red nose, or the lack of soft, welcoming lines, but this particular reindeer looks like he hauls Futurama‘s terrifying Robot Santa around.

Math Clocks and Watches: It’S Problem-Solving Time

Math Clocks and Watches: It’S Problem-Solving Time
Until ten minutes ago, I wasn’t aware that telling the time was too easy for some people. Here are a couple of timepieces so smart they’re stupid: Here’s the square root watch; I guess all that’s left to say is you can get this for $40 over at SkyMall.

Neo-Victorian Keyboard and Monitor [Steampunk]

Neo-Victorian Keyboard and Monitor [Steampunk]
Here’s something that the LXG would greatly appreciate: hardware modder/antique & scuttlefish lover/ potential Cthulhu worshipper Paradox has created what he calls a “Neo-Victorian keyboard”; he also modded a widescreen monitor to go along with it. Paradox said that it took him well over a month to modify a 12.5″

Hoth in LEGO, Now With Tauntauns [Empire Strikes Back]

Hoth in LEGO, Now With Tauntauns [Empire Strikes Back]
You can make just about anything from Lego, but it takes a special sort of hard-working soul to build something as painstakingly authentic as this recreation of Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back. With Lego bricks, custom figures, LEDs and creativity, Echo Base lives to be attacked again. It’s not all Lego bricks and minifigs, of course; some things had to be constructed by hand from other materials, like the tauntaun and the turrets, and I’m pretty sure there’s not a bacta tank playset.

Papercraft Xmas Tree is a Colorful Fire Hazard

Papercraft Xmas Tree is a Colorful Fire Hazard
There’s just something about most holiday decorations that screams fire hazard, but this one really takes that idea and runs with it. This Christmas tree, by deviantARTist Maire, is done up almost completely in papercraft. The few lone traditional ornaments look awfully forlorn (and seriously outnumbered). The decorations are a real mix, from gaming icons like Mario, Link, and Mega Man, to upstarts like the Weighted Companion Cube from Portal, and they’re all made out of paper (and the sweat of effort).

Force Bunt: Star Wars Sports Jerseys

Force Bunt: Star Wars Sports Jerseys
Quick survey! Which would you prefer? Sparkly albino vampire vs. dirty raggedy vampire baseball, or Jedi vs. Sith baseball? In other words, are you a young girl or are you an old nerd? Don’t say “both”.

Create Your Own Profanity

Create Your Own Profanity
If run-of-the-mill, every day profanity just isn’t good enough for you–maybe you’re the type who yells KRAF! when you stub a toe–then you just might be the target market for the Super Electrofluorescent Profanity Machine, which will merrily generate random four-letter words for you at the rate of one per second. The machine, which was constructed from fluorescent vacuum tubes, also tells time.

Iblock: LEGO Style iPod Speakers

Iblock: LEGO Style iPod Speakers
Here’s one of those things that makes me go, “why not?”: Building Brick iPod Speakers. On one hand, Lego and iPod barely have anything to do with each other. On the other hand, why not? The Building Brick iPod Speakers, aka iPod Brick, aka iBlock, but not aka Lego iPod speakers,  works with 3rd-5th gen iPods, 1st-3rd gen iPod Nanos and on the iPod touch.

Apple Branded Apples

Apple Branded Apples
From the land of the rising square watermelons comes another batch of freaky fruit. A Fuji apple orchard owner loved the big A so much that he decided to brand real apples with little iPod figures and Apple logos.

Foldskool Heroes: They’Re Boxy but They’Re Good

Foldskool Heroes: They’Re Boxy but They’Re Good
Got mad paper, scissor and tape skills? How about a fondness for old school video games and computers? Then have I got a fun afternoon project for you. Graphic designer Marshall Alexander’s cutout characters includes a veritable menagerie fantastical creatures and critters all made from boxy paper cutouts, but his latest series, Foldskool Heroes 3, has got to be my favorite.

Add Never-Ending Tetris to Your Wall

Add Never-Ending Tetris to Your Wall
Anyone can play a game of Tetris; the Russian classic is available in dozens of formats, and there are clones and knock-offs aplenty. You can even go the Soylent Green route and make your Tetris out of people if you are so inclined.

Limited Edition Space Invaders Prints Land on Your Wall

Limited Edition Space Invaders Prints Land on Your Wall
As you probably have figured out by now, I’m a big fan of Space Invaders. I know, as a game, it really doesn’t hold up that well over the years, but as a pop-cultural icons its characters are c’est magnifique. If you too have a soft spot in your heart for the Invaders, these 8-bit pop art prints are the perfect addition to your pad.

Half-Life Cookies Put Candy Canes to Shame

Half-Life Cookies Put Candy Canes to Shame
A regular person might look at candy cane cookie cutters and think holiday treats. A Half-Life fan, on the other hand, knows there’s a better use for that red icing: Gordon Freeman’s crowbar. A simple snip in the curl of the cane turns peppermint innocence into tools of edible destruction.

Custom Dead Space Figure Makes Horror Fun Again

Custom Dead Space Figure Makes Horror Fun Again
Real fans don’t buy action figures, whether or not they’re commercially available. Buying things is for wimps. No, the real fan breaks out the paint, dismembers currently-existing figures, and then the real fan makes their own action figures, like Chris Hooton did for the horror game Dead Space. Dead Space borrows heavily from other material–most notably, science fiction classic Solaris–so it’s only fitting that Hooton’s custom figure borrowed heavily from another figure.

Classic Mario Bros. Coaster Set

Classic Mario Bros. Coaster Set
1985: A time when we gamers grew sick and tired of the princess being in another castle. When jumping on something first became a method of destruction. When Luigi looked exactly the same as Mario, except for his white and green clothes.
