Technabob Mascot Immortalized in Rubik’s Cubes

Technabob Mascot Immortalized in Rubik’s Cubes
See that little robot guy in the upper right corner of the Technabob site header? He’s the original mascot of our humble little website, inspired by the classic arcade game Berserk. So I was oh so thrilled when I heard a world-renown urban artist has immortalized the same robo-dude using a bunch of Rubik’s Cubes.

Space Invaders Sighted on Bluetooth Headset

Space Invaders Sighted on Bluetooth Headset
Bluetooth headsets are pretty much a dime a dozen these days. So it’s gotta be something pretty different that makes me even think of mentioning one here on Technabob. This recent addition to Jabra’s headset line allows you to customize the design by swapping out different custom covers.

Is That a Wii-Mote in Your Ear?

Is That a Wii-Mote in Your Ear?
Gamer girls, if you weren’t fortunate enough to pick up the Nintendo DS necklace, here’s another fun piece of video game inspired jewelry I found. These earrings are tiny versions of the Nintendo Wii-mote controller. Artist Thiakosia hand-sculpted these tiny Wii controller earrings entirely from Sculpey polymer clay.

Zelda Mosaic Immortalizes Link in Stained Glass

Zelda Mosaic Immortalizes Link in Stained Glass
Here’s something for true fans of Nintendo’s classic Legend of Zelda adventure series. Etsy contributor ProphetofDoom recently created this wonderful mosaic version of the video game’s protagonist Link. Handmade from thousands of individually cut pieces of stained glass, it took the artist over three months to complete.

Look Mr. Bubbles, We’ve Been Etch-a-Sketched

Look Mr. Bubbles, We’ve Been Etch-a-Sketched
Given the fact that for my entire life, I’ve been completely incapable of drawing anything but some straight lines and the occasional stair step on an Etch-A-Sketch, this image simply blew my head off. I was already duly impressed with the detail that artist the Etch-A-Sketchist has been able to squeak out of the little red and white drawing toy.

Mirror Answers the Question: is That a Weave?

Mirror Answers the Question: is That a Weave?
I first told you about artist Daniel Rozin’s cool interactive mirrors about a year ago. He’s now showing off his latest creations at New York’s Bitforms gallery. Here are a couple of my favorites: The Weave Mirror uses 768 individual strips which are woven together into a grid.

Reveal Watches Tell Time a Little Bit at a Time

Reveal Watches Tell Time a Little Bit at a Time
The funky-cool Reveal Watch by pioneering typographer/designer Daniel Will-Harris tells the time by gradually revealing the digits hidden behind a set of partially opaque discs. As each minute and hour passes, the previous number gradually fades away, revealing the next number in the sequence.

10,000 LED Orbs Land in a Field in Italy

10,000 LED Orbs Land in a Field in Italy
Artist Giancarlo Neri has put together this stunning installation which places 10,000 individual colored LED orbs in a field. Each sphere gradually cycles through colors, creating a beautiful, dramatic vista. While the illuminated globes are absolutely stunning by night, they’re equally as interesting when turned off during the daylight hours.

Guitar Hero Controller Gets Stuffed

Guitar Hero Controller Gets Stuffed
Amidst her handmade menagerie of teddy bears, bunny rabbits and other cute critters, Delaware crafter Poisonholly created this seemingly out of place plush Guitar Hero 2 controller. The hand crafted guitar bears more than a passing resemblance to the PS2’s cherry red Gibson SG, complete with colored fret “buttons” on the neck.

Itsa Mario Tattoo

Itsa Mario Tattoo
I’m not sure how you handmake temporary tattoos, but Etsy artist michibags seems to know how. (I’m guessing it’s done with special inkjet paper and ink). Her latest creation is these temp tats of everyone’s favorite little Italian plumber, Mario.

Kikkerland LED Wall Art Constantly Changes Colors

Kikkerland LED Wall Art Constantly Changes Colors
Hang this piece of modern digital art on your wall, and you’ll get a never-ending light show of cycling colors. Kikkerland’s Geometric LED Board looks sort of like digital stained glass, gradually shimmering betweens colors, creating a variety of kaleidoscope-like patterns.

Space Invaders Mobile Hovers Over Head

Space Invaders Mobile Hovers Over Head
I guess it doesn’t take much to amuse me these days. Pretty much put an image of Mario, Pac-man or the Space Invaders on anything handmade and I’ll bite. Today’s crafty goody is this felt mobile that pays tribute to Taito’s classic video game aliens.

Abstract LED Wall Art Casts a Colorful Glow

Abstract LED Wall Art Casts a Colorful Glow
Electronic artist blinkybug has created this series of wall art pieces that use a set of loosely arranged LEDs to form some cool abstract works of art. The artist places LEDs and circuitry behind a translucent canvas to create a constantly-evolving display of abstract colored light.

It’s a Me, LEGO Mario

It’s a Me, LEGO Mario
I came across this cool 3-dimensional LEGO sculpture of everyone’s favorite video game plumber (sorry Luigi) over on TechEBlog this morning. It must have take days for the artist to painstakingly recreate all of Mario’s details.

Painting With Light

Painting With Light
While they might be a bit “new-agey” for my taste, I think these LED light murals are still pretty cool. Perhaps better suited for nightclubs or restaurants than for your home, these Light Energy Paintings can fill a wall with a dazzling show of colored light.
