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.

Artist Envisions Boba Fett’s Escape from the Sarlacc Pit

Artist Envisions Boba Fett’s Escape from the Sarlacc Pit
I always felt like the exit of Boba Fett in Return of the Jedi was rather flippant on the part of George Lucas. I mean Boba had been a cool character, and played an important role in the story.

Artist Paints Awesome Pop Culture Easter Eggs

Artist Paints Awesome Pop Culture Easter Eggs
Easter has come and gone and while celebrating with eggs and candy, you might have missed these awesome eggs painted by artist Barak Hardley. He spent over 150 hours painting them all up with images of celebrities and pop culture icons.

Dueling Robots Controlled by Left and Right Brainwaves

Dueling Robots Controlled by Left and Right Brainwaves
Split Brain Robotics is an interactive art project by San Francisco artist Kal Spelletich, in which a pair of custom-built robots are able to plug into the left and right brain waves of audience participants. It is pretty wild to watch.

These Arcade Game Shadow Boxes are Simply Awesome

These Arcade Game Shadow Boxes are Simply Awesome
Do you love classic arcade games, but don’t have the room (or the cash) for an arcade cabinet in your living room? These fantastic pieces of arcade-inspired wall art are the next best thing. Each one of Glitch Arwork’s 3D shadow boxes uses a combination of authentic arcade graphics, along with some artistic license to make the scenes more dynamic and for the sake of composition.

The Archimedean Turd is Perfect Crap

The Archimedean Turd is Perfect Crap
This may be the most perfect pile of poo ever created. It’s made from gold, so it won’t come back up after you flush. Technically it’s a geometrically correct turd as well. The geometry of this poop sculpture is based on the combination of an Archimedean spiral and the Golden Ratio/phi in triangles.

Realistic Pokémon are Super Cute: I Choose You!

Realistic Pokémon are Super Cute: I Choose You!
Pokémon are cute little creatures as cartoons and I’d bet everyone who has ever seen one of the creatures on TV or in a game has wondered what they would look like in the real world.
