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.

With Easter coming up, it’s almost egg decorating time! A few years back, LEGO builder Jason Allemann aka JK Brickworks made his own version of Evil Mad Scientist’ Eggbot using the parts that are in the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit 31313.

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.

Amazing Miniature Structures by Takanori Aiba
Artist Takanori Aiba has elevated the art of miniature sculptures to a new level. His intricate structures replicate dreamlike architecture, complete with tiny vehicles, umbrellas, street lamps, flags, and other details. Takanori crafts his models from paper, plastic, acrylic resin, paint and rocks.

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. 

Artist Turns Car into a Pizza Oven on Wheels

Artist Turns Car into a Pizza Oven on Wheels
New York style… Chicago style… California style… everyone has their favorite kind of pizza. I personally like a super-thin and crispy brick oven pizza like the ones they make in Italy. Now, thanks to one enterprising artist, you can have a delicious thin-crust pizza cooked up inside of a car.

Yoshi & Toad Stained Glass Mosaic: The Church of the Mushroom Kingdom

Yoshi & Toad Stained Glass Mosaic: The Church of the Mushroom Kingdom
I don’t spend much time in church, but if they had videogames there, I might show up more often. I like to think that if religious institutions had an arcade, we’d all be spending more time bending the knee to the gods of gaming.

Explore Every Detail of Finn and Jake’s Tree Fort

Explore Every Detail of Finn and Jake’s Tree Fort
Finn and Jake’s tree fort on Adventure Time is awesome, but we never get to see much of it in the show. Thankfully, artist Max Degtyarev has created a very cool cutaway illustration of their tree home with tons of detail.

Neural Network Turns Flowers Into Dinosaurs

Neural Network Turns Flowers Into Dinosaurs
If there is one thing that I have learned, it is that imaging neural networks can produce some creepy results. But sometimes the results can be beautiful too. Chris Rodley used a deep learning algorithm to merge a book of dinosaurs with a book of flower paintings.

AI Creates Creepy Original Faces: Face-Off

AI Creates Creepy Original Faces: Face-Off
We’ve seen some very weird and disturbing images created by AI before. Google AI developer Mike Tyka works on his own AI projects in his spare time. This project has something that the Google DeepDream AI lacks – the ability to create original faces.

Sushi Sneakers Smell Like Fish, Not Feet

Sushi Sneakers Smell Like Fish, Not Feet
I don’t like sushi. I once was tricked into eating some, and I thought it was really gross. I was starving after walking 187 miles during CES one year, and was invited to dinner, along with the promise of steak.

Absolut Hangsmart Is a Fancy Picture Hanger That’s Always Level

Absolut Hangsmart Is a Fancy Picture Hanger That’s Always Level
Hanging pictures is a huge pain in the rear. I never seem to get them level or centered in the spot where I want them. This results in lots of holes in my walls. The Absolut Hangsmart is a new picture hanger that aims to make it easy to mount your pictures and art on the wall and get it perfectly level every time.
