I like Batman well enough. I certainly watched the show in reruns during the summer growing up, and love the Christian Bale/Christopher Nolan franchise. Batman fans into DIY and making things with their hands might want to get some of these kits.
During August in Japan, Obon is celebrated. The idea is that the spirits of people’s ancestors return to this world. In order to welcome the spirits, people make little displays out of eggplants and cucumbers. So why not get geeky about it and make some Mad Max vehicles?
Between ad trackers, Google’s deeply integrated services, and our social media presence, it’s not that hard to gather facts about both our online and offline lives by tracking our browsing habits. But that’s not the case with this twitchy machine.
There has been a bunch of Batman TV shows over the years in both cartoon and live-action form. Batman has also appeared a bunch of times on the big screen with my favorite being Christian Bale and his gruff-voiced depiction of the superhero.
Last year, we featured the Nomad, a desktop CNC mill. Toolbotics’ Tooli is also a desktop CNC machine, but it’s meant for arts and crafts. Its four optional heads lets you automate a variety of tasks, from drawing to assembling small items.
I used to play a lot of Super Mario Bros. back in the day, but it was never one of my favorite games. It was just the game all my friends wanted to play. Mario Kart, on the other hand, I loved and would dominate some bitches.
We have been talking about the 3Doodler pen since it first turned up on Kickstarter several years ago. This is sort of a mash up between a 3D printer and a hot glue gun. What it allows you to do is draw anything you can think of in full 3D rather than on flat paper.
Life can be hectic and stressful. Some days you don’t want to get out of bed. If only we could stay in bed and still go everywhere we need to go. Well that dream has come true thanks to artist Carsten Holler.
All I know about Vikings and Norse mythology is what I gleaned from the Marvel universe and other TV shows. One thing I know that they preferred to burn the bodies of their dead by setting them afloat in ships that were on fire.
This is creepy, but also cool. Most artists get to practice their craft until they are great at it. Tattoo artists don’t have that luxury. Their medium is flesh and people have to live with their mistakes.
The Fraley’s Robot Repair Shop was a public storefront art installation, created by artist Toby Atticus Fraley. It was located in the Pittsburgh Cultural District from November 2011 to May 2013. It featured a scene that imagined that the “owners left for vacation, leaving robots in various stages of repair.”
Daniel Rozin loves to create mechanical and virtual mirrors, inviting the viewer to participate in the completion of his artwork. His latest piece is no different. The PomPom Mirror uses tufts of fake black and beige fur as pixels to generate a “reflection.”
We once ran into a clown at Walmart who looked suitably creepy. Naturally, my kids had to have a balloon animal something or other. We ended up with a sword and a pink poodle – and you had to use a lot of imagination to see either object.
Garden gnomes are weird. I always imagined that they would come to life and try to kill me in my sleep growing up. I am not such a big fan of the original Star Trek series, but I certainly watched all the big screen movies growing up with the original cast.
