Gotta Nuke ‘Em All

Gotta Nuke ‘Em All
Definitely one of the weirdest mash-ups I’ve ever seen. The sagacity of Boing Boing‘s commenters shed more light on the painting. Made by a Japanese artist named Sakkan, the title of the painting reveals the pun: “Rocket Monster Kim”.

Build Your Own Beer Bottle With Heineken

Build Your Own Beer Bottle With Heineken
If you are a huge fan of beer, you might like to try all sorts of weird brews with strange ingredients. I know a few people that like to buy strange beers simply because they come in weird bottles.

Keroro Gunso Xbox 360: Good Luck and Good Gaming
deviantART member ricepuppet does Wii and Xbox 360 paint jobs. As proof of his skills, he painted his own Xbox 360 along with the controllers, using the manga and anime character Keroro Gunso (Sgt. Frog) as his theme.

Voxel-Like Coke Man Constructed for the World Cup

Voxel-Like Coke Man Constructed for the World Cup
While World Cup mania has started gripping the world, I’m amazed at this Coke Man that was constructed in Johannesburg recently to celebrate the World Cup. The blocky design makes it look like voxels, which are basically pixels shown in 3D space.

Space Invaders Balloon Art Pops Up in Spain

Space Invaders Balloon Art Pops Up in Spain
I always enjoy seeing Space Invaders turning up in unlikely places. This time, it looks like the Space Invaders took over parts of Girona, Spain last month. These installations were realized by El Colmado in collaboration with Quim Roqué and Helena Delgado for their (badly named) spaceinvARTders exhibition.

Fossils of the Mechazoic Era: the What Now?

Fossils of the Mechazoic Era: the What Now?
Poor dead bird. Wait what the — It’s a dead robo-bird! Artist/illustrator/futurechologist Justin Chase Black, more respectfully addressed as Mr. ThrowingChicken, recently finished the awesome looking  Creatures of the Mechazoic Era, a series of sculptures that look like fossilized remains from a time yet to come.

Solar Equation: It’S Always Sunny in Melbourne, Australia

Solar Equation: It’S Always Sunny in Melbourne, Australia
The city of Melbourne, Australia currently has two suns. There’s the normal one that it shares with the rest of the world and goes away during the night, and there’s the one in Melbourne’s Federation Square, rising at night, about 100 million times smaller than the real Sun. 

R2-Im: Iron Mech

R2-Im: Iron Mech
In an alternate galaxy far far away, R2D2 was a brilliant billionaire astromech who built himself an armored suit to fight the bad guys. Cue AC/DC music: Download digital artist Mike Verta’s R2-Iron Man wallpapers for free on Facebook.

Motherboard Stained Glass Windows

Motherboard Stained Glass Windows
If there were a Church of Old Technology, these would be the stained-glass windows they’d have hanging on their walls. Created out of recycled circuit boards by a guy simply going by “Dan”, they’re not actually windows, but give off the appearance of stained glass because of the colors he selected.

Back to the Future Hoverboard is Finally Real, and No, You Can’T Ride It

Back to the Future Hoverboard is Finally Real, and No, You Can’T Ride It
Apparently the hoverboard that I’ve always wanted has finally become reality. It was made by Nils Guadagnin for a Back to the Future exhibition. As is obvious from the pics, this is a copy of the one Marty McFly rode in Back to the Future Part II.

LCD Bending: Art From Cracked Screens

LCD Bending: Art From Cracked Screens
So I always thought that once you cracked an LCD screen, it was pretty much useless. Not so says this guy, who used a dead LCD screen to create interactive art.

Pocket Synths: Paperkraftwerk

Pocket Synths: Paperkraftwerk
Artist Dan McPharlin makes incredibly detailed miniature synths and other electronic instruments out of cardboard: Wow. There are so many neat touches in that picture alone: the tiny monitor and the wires on the lower left synth, the wood-like paint on the upper right synth… Maybe someone can embed a chip or something and make these things actually play tiny bleeps and bloops!

The Secret Life of Star Wars Toys

The Secret Life of Star Wars Toys
I really like this series of photos that shows us what all those Star Wars toys are up to after hours. Sure, keeping them in their boxes might preserve their resell value, but hey, toys need to have a life too!

Sprite Something iPad App: Pixelicious
Pixel sprites may be ancient by today’s standards, but they still retain their charm. They’re relatively easy to create, too, and with Terrible Games’ iPad app Sprite Something, game developers and artists can literally whip one up in seconds.
