Artist Implants USB Drives Into Walls, Makes File Sharing Infinitely Cooler

Artist Implants USB Drives Into Walls, Makes File Sharing Infinitely Cooler
You might know Aram Bartholl as the man who came up with CAPTCHA business cards. Bartholl is making waves once more with yet another clever and still geeky work of art. Bartholl calls it Dead Drops, and the idea is simple – he embedded five flash drives into walls or curbs around New York so people can anonymously share files with each other.

Parallel of Time Clock: Hey Kids, What Time is It?

Parallel of Time Clock: Hey Kids, What Time is It?
When John Leung of Australia’s Clarke Hopkins Clarke architects first sent me details on this unusual clock, I thought – “how the heck do you tell time on that?” Well, it turns out that the Parallel of Time clock is actually an assemblage of multiple clock faces, precisely coordinated and connected via parallel cables.

Inflatable Photo Studio Lets Photogs Shoot Indoors When Outdoors
When I was a kid, my brother and I would make tents out of a sheet and a box fan when our parents wouldn’t let us get out a real tent. All you had to do was put the sheet over the fan and you ended up with a ready-made inflatable tent.

LEGO Letterpress Proves There Are Few Things LEGO Can’T Do
I like to find strange things that are made from LEGO and when those strange things actually serve a purpose its even cooler. I ran across this LEGO letterpress like those they used for printing lots of letters and flyers back in the old days.

R2-D2 Gets a Parking Ticket From an Astronaut

R2-D2 Gets a Parking Ticket From an Astronaut
This great painting is by Scott Listfield. Scott has got quite a few paintings featuring these lonely astronauts in them. The whole concept reminds me of 2001: Space Odyssey. Except for the R2-D2 part – that reminds me of Star Wars.

This Artwork was Made Due to Licensing Constraints
Good thing there’s no such thing as a Hulu for pictures (not yet anyway), or else we might not be able to see Paul Mutant’s painting: Check out the full sized pic of Mutant’s “This painting is not available in your country” (acrylic on canvas) on his Flickr page.

The Art of Aled Lewis: Cartoon Crossovers

The Art of Aled Lewis: Cartoon Crossovers
London-based graphic designer Aled Lewis does a bit of drawing on the side, and when he does he says he likes to create stuff that make people laugh. His geeky art certainly does that. Take the piece below for example, which Lewis calls ‘Battle 101’: If you lobbed a Wailord directly at your enemy, it really will be super effective.

Minimalist Radio by Simon Hasan: No, You Don’t Get Sirius on It

Minimalist Radio by Simon Hasan: No, You Don’t Get Sirius on It
At first glance, it’s hard to figure out what this strange looking thing actually does. Granted, there’s an antenna, but that’s about it that would give you a clue it’s a radio. The Naked Radio is the creation of Simon Hasan and it’s a sort of radio/art piece that he put together.

Keep Calm and Game on: Meme + Video Game Posters
Lots of people are sick of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” war poster meme, but if you’re not one of them then you might want to grab these posters made by Red Bubble member SevenHundred: Nearly all of them refer to classic Nintendo games though, so if you wanted Keep Calm and BOOM!

Eggbot Kit: for Geeky Easter Bunnies
Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories recently introduced their latest non-diabolical creation – the Eggbot. It’s an “open source art robot” that can draw on spherical or ellipsoidal surfaces. The Eggbot can draw on objects with diameters ranging from 1.25 to 4.25 inches, so you can forget about drawing on your head.

Kratos Speed Painting: the Gods of War Approve

Kratos Speed Painting: the Gods of War Approve
Watch as artist Robert Mangaoang (aka “Doom CMYK “) creates a digital illustration of Kratos from God of War 3 in this awesome time-lapse painting session he did using Photoshop CS3 and his Wacom tablet. The authentic music from the game really puts me in the mood to dust of my game disc and play through again.

Circuit Board Sculpture: Artist Turns Computer Innards Into Art

Circuit Board Sculpture: Artist Turns Computer Innards Into Art
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve always found circuit boards interesting. Yes, that partly means “I don’t understand what the hell is going on here”, but I really do find the patterns mysterious and amazing, because a human like me designed this, and it’s this engraved soul of the computer that lets me check out cat videos on YouTube.

Wall Tentacle: Because Mounting a Whole Octopus Would be Too Ridiculous

Wall Tentacle: Because Mounting a Whole Octopus Would be Too Ridiculous
And I thought the Bowser trophy mount was awesome. Here’s a wonderfully-made wall mount that’s looks so real it’s freaky. Animal lovers need not worry, because the wall tentacle is actually made from household materials, like used paper, sawdust, starch and glue.

Star Wars Graffiti: the Empire Sprays Back

Star Wars Graffiti: the Empire Sprays Back
If there’s one thing that I’ve never been able to do, it’s to create freehand drawings with a can of paint. Luckily, others can do wonders with these cans, as is evidenced by the these excellent Star Wars graffiti creations found around the globe by Smosh.

Mosaic Tile Video Game Controllers: No Grout About It

Mosaic Tile Video Game Controllers: No Grout About It
I’m pretty sure that these mosaic tile video game controllers don’t work, but if they did, it sure would be cool. But even if they don’t play, they sure would look cool hung on the wall of your game room.
