Finally, A Bicycle Ping-Pong Table

Finally, A Bicycle Ping-Pong Table
I was just thinking the other day how crazy it was that nobody had made a mobile ping-pong table; then today, I wake up and see this: Le vélo table de ping-pong, an art piece constructed by Benedetto Bufalino.

Vintage Porcelain Painted with Tiny, Lifelike Ants: Teaparty, Ruined!

Vintage Porcelain Painted with Tiny, Lifelike Ants: Teaparty, Ruined!
German artist Evelyn Bracklow paints tiny, realistic black ants on vintage porcelain, making the pieces appear to be crawling with the insects. Why exactly, I’m not sure, but they certainly make for an interesting conversation piece.

Hand-cut Hand Saw Scenes: Cutting Edge Art

Hand-cut Hand Saw Scenes: Cutting Edge Art
You’re looking at a series of old hand saws that have been cut into various scenes of rural living (plus Bigfoot). Cindy Chinn (aka thesawlady) of Chester, Nebraska hand cuts these using a plasma torch. Note to self: buy yourself a plasma torch, you deserve it.

Portals Are Massive Webcams and Screens that Connect Lithuania and Poland: Tai Yra Triumfas
A massive disc recently installed in Lithuania’s capital city Vilnius shows a live view of what appears to be another normal street. But it’s actually showing the view from a twin disc located in Lublin, Poland, nearly 400 miles away.

Human Hand Sculpture Endlessly Taps Its Fingers

Human Hand Sculpture Endlessly Taps Its Fingers
Art: it means different things to different people. And to Nick Ramage, it means creating these £600 (~$830) Fingers Mk III mechanical sculptures. Honestly, I don’t know if I’m more surprised that they exist at all, or that there were Mk I and Mk II Fingers that came before this.

Jar Jar Binks Replaces the Subject in Fine Art Paintings

Jar Jar Binks Replaces the Subject in Fine Art Paintings
Jar Jar Binks: hands down everyone’s favorite Star Wars character, even beating out the space slug that almost eats the Millennium Falcon. And now thanks to the work of artist scadarts, he’s can also be everyone’s favorite fine art subject.

Welcome to The Cheetosphere

Welcome to The Cheetosphere
Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve had a tendency to play with my food. I remember cobbling together all kinds of gross concoctions at the table whenever we went out to eat, and occasionally stacking food items like Lincoln Logs to create edible towers.

smART Pixelator Turns Your Images Into Pixel Art Templates

smART Pixelator Turns Your Images Into Pixel Art Templates
I have a very soft spot in my heart for pixel art, having grown up in the 1980s with rudimentary 8-bit and 16-bit video games dominating my formative years. So I really love anything that encourages the creation of pixel-based designs.

Pringles Man Made from Pringles Can

Pringles Man Made from Pringles Can
Despite the fact that they’re not actually potato chips, but are some kind of smooshed up potato mush, Pringles are still pretty tasty. As you know, these crispy snacks come stacked in a cylindrical can, with Pringles’ iconic mustachioed mascot on front.

Giant Metal Scorpion is the Terminator of Arthropods

Giant Metal Scorpion is the Terminator of Arthropods
If there’s one critter that I think universally gives people the creeps, it’s the scorpion. While only a very small percentage are deadly enough to kill humans, they’re still pretty nasty looking creatures, and not the type of thing I’d want to run into while walking around the desert.

This Mario Mega Man Mashup Is Marvelous

This Mario Mega Man Mashup Is Marvelous
Two of the best all-time Nintendo games are Super Mario Bros. and Mega Man. So I can think of no better Nintendo hero than one who combines Mario and Mega Man himself. This fun mashup comes courtesy of CG artist Yago De Amorim, who says the inspiration came from a 2D illustration by artist Jake Parker.

Starry Planet Wall Art Won’t Cost You an Arm and an Ear

Starry Planet Wall Art Won’t Cost You an Arm and an Ear
I have always liked Van Gogh’s 1889 painting “The Starry Night“. There aren’t many classic paintings of nightscapes, and anyone who loves to look at the stars will like what ThinkGeek has cooked up. It’s called “Starry Planet,” and it has the look and feel of the Van Gogh masterpiece, with a slightly different subject matter.

The Original Macintosh Finder Control Panel, Cross-stitched

The Original Macintosh Finder Control Panel, Cross-stitched
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.
