If you see a guy with a thick belt around his waist making some weird hip movements and thrusting in random directions, don’t immediately dismiss him as being some weird pervert who has nothing better to do with his life just yet.
A lot of other iPhone cases can make your device look pretty or make it more convenient or more functional. And then there are others that aren’t exactly cases but sort of function in a similar manner, like this belt buckle slash iPhone holster called the EXO7 that lets you slip your device easily into it so you can wear it around your waist.
I have seen a bunch of stuff over the years with the brown and gold leather bearing the iconic Louis Vuitton logo. I have never liked any of the real Vuitton products that used the fabric, and I certainly don’t like this fake Chinese rip-off.
OK, I am a geek. I can admit that and have no problem with that fact. I do have standards though, and draw the line when things go from geeky to downright weird. I think the new Batman TDK Utility Pouch may have dissolved that line quite well.
I will admit to an irrational fear of writing BSOD, saying BSOD, or thinking BSOD. I think Windows sits waiting like HAL for us to utter the word and then offers up the dreaded blue screen out of spite.
Julien Jaborska’s bicycle tire belts make for nice and unique gifts for bike enthusiasts. Not only do they look good, all of the treads are recycled, so if you get one of these you’re helping the environment too.
As you can see the belts are made from treads with varying textures and types “rescued” from the trash.
Here’s the perfect fashion accessory for Bioshock fans.
Technabob reader Matthew Borgatti (aka “M@”) created this intricately detailed bronze belt buckle which bears the inimitable Art Deco logo from the classic underwater shooter. M@ started out by having a wax mold carved on TechShop’s Tormach CNC.
He then produced a silicone mold from the wax and had the bronze casting made by the guys over at JR Casting.
While I really love the way the raw bronze looked when it came back from the casting, M@ did a great job giving it that thoroughly weathered look that’s more apropos of the game’s decrepit atmosphere.
You can check out more photos of the Bioshock belt buckle and M@’s other creative works over on Sinbox and Flickr.
What could say “I really know how to dress myself” more than a nice big brass belt buckle. You know – the type that’s so huge that you dare not try to bend at the waist, lest you puncture an internal organ?
Other than maybe one of those giant glitzy wresting belts, I can’t think of a more rockin’ thing to wear around your waist than one of these nifty retro video game belt buckles.
Handmade by artist Natalie Hutcheson (aka “HutchMe”), these metal buckles don imagery of famous icons of classic arcade games.
If you’re the kind of person who rolls out his Chewbacca impression at parties, this “Empire Strikes Back”-themed belt might be the piece de resistance to round out your existing collection of Boba Fett bobbleheads and ceramic Stormtrooper figurines.
The belts are made by Refinding, a wee company out of Kansas City that makes accessories out of all kinds of trash, er, reclaimed materials, like tire treads, tennis balls, typewriter letters, and, in this case, used trading cards.
If you wore one of those Casio calculator watches from the 80’s, here’s something else that just screams “I’m a geek, I have no girlfriend, and I don’t care.”
The chrome calculator belt buckle lets you add, subtract, multiply and divide, all from the convenience of your waistline.
