Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde and Ikea
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a piece of furniture from Ikea, spent countless hours assembling it, only to have some slightly out-of-the ordinary use cause it to fail catastrophically. That’s exactly what happened to this artist when he overstuffed his drawers with his drawers and tried to move them.

Thanks to a little hard work and creativity, a Japanese toy Otaku has put together this awesome little Wii box robot. By combining Amazon Japan’s shipping box robot toy, some custom-printed box labels and a few mini Wii keychain accessories, they completed the look for the pint-sized bot.

This custom made toy by artist/sculptor Doktor A is a wondrous tribute to the classic arcade game, Pac-Man. The one-of-a-kind sculptural toy is entitled “The Secret History of Video Games: Pac Gentleman”. It almost reads like a steampunk version of the 1980s dot-muncher, what with its crank-driven game play and wooden and metallic accents.

Xbox 360: a Cute and Cuddly Console
Were Bioshock and Halo 3 a little too intense for your delicate sensibilities? Are games like Barbie’s Horse Adventure more your pace? Then have I got a video game console for you! An artist going by the excellent screen name Kickass-Peanut created this soft, plush Xbox 360 console, which is certain to be unable to play those evil “M”-rated games.

While you might think that top hats went out of fashion a hundred years ago, this funky hat hack uses modern technology to bring the classic cap into a new era. The LedHat is a handcrafted wonder that involved soldering a grid of hundreds of individual green LEDs around the crown of a top hat.

Pac-Man Inky Ghost Bag: Booyah!
I came across this funky Pac-Man inspired bag over on Etsy earlier today.

Using a bunch of carefully selected buttons, the artists stitched together the blue ghost from the classic 80s arcade game.

Check out this amazingly precise needlepoint inspired by Super Mario Brothers.

It took Lauren about 30 hours to complete this 9″ x 11″ scene from SMB, handstitching the entire piece from scratch.
