This kind of reminds me of the Weasley clock that was in Harry Potter, but there’s actually more to it than just the time. It can actually show you what the weather is like outside.
I love how this display is retro and analog.
The Evil Mad Scientists are at it again, flexing their brains and soldering stuff in their lab-or-a-to-ry. Their latest creation still does not make them evil or mad, just creative, resourceful and geeky. They’re trying to make a real world version of one of the oldest video games, PONG.
Picture this – you’re being held hostage by an evil, bad-makeup-wearin’ supervillian, but you’re 25 miles away from Gotham City. Normally, you’d be screwed, right? But just then, you reach into your backpack and whip out your own portable Bat Signal, hailing the Dark Knight from across town.
Sugru might look like normal everyday clay but actually it’s a silicone polymer that cures at room temperature. Why is it so special? Well it can be molded in to any shape and stuck on to metal, ceramic, wood, leather and plastic!
Who says there’s not a way to make Thanksgiving just as geeky as every other day of the year?
The guys over at Sparkle Labs have made a simple PDF template you can download to turn your table into a festival of technological bounty.
From the why-didn’t-I-think-of-that files comes this homemade katamari. But oh! You’re only seeing part of the picture, because after this bad boy is finished, it’s gonna roll. And by roll, I mean, “some people are gonna stick things to it.”
Pixel art can be made out of all sorts of units, from painted squares to beads… but one item I haven’t previously seen used to product pixel art? Toilet paper rolls. Well, folks, we’ll never be able to say that again.
I know, we’re more than a month away from Hanukkah, but when I saw these awesomely geeky LED Menorah kits today, I just had to give them a mention. Heck, if it were the middle of April, I’d probably still write about them.
Our pals over at Evil Mad Science Labs have created these battery-operated “Deluxe” LED Menorah kits which let you choose the type of lights you like the best.
I can’t say whether or not this Proton Pack will actually trap ghosts, but from this brief glimpse, there is one thing I can say for certain: this badass project is sure to score the top prize at Halloween costume contests, and isn’t that worth more than a ghost in a box?
The entire costume–you didn’t think it was just the Proton Pack, did you?–took
How can you liven up the traditional wedding? True quirkiness goes beyond interesting dresses and video game cakes, as one California couple proved with their 8-bit DIY wedding theme. Forget a regular ol’ bouquet. Let’s get pixelated.
When a graphic designer and a video game programmer get married, this is what happens: a profusion of pixels.
There are fancy toilets and then something beyond that, something reserved for the truly epic, the gold-plated, the toilets that come equipped with a cupholder… toilets like this one. Or urinals, rather. Or, uh, devices in the water closet.
Treat, or do not treat. There is no trick. At least, that’s what I’m imaging this child is being taught to say for Halloween. The regular ol’ “trick or treat” just doesn’t seem like it would quite measure up to this incredible Yoda costume.
Actually, for seasoned crafters, this little Yoda costume doesn’t seem too difficult.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m waking up from a nightmare, I want to be able to clutch my blanket in comfort, not in added terror. Apparently, though, not everyone is like this, or this Silent Hill-themed blanket would not exist.
Seriously, Pyramid Head is just about the scariest character in all of video gaming.
Some babies are just hipper than others. You can tell by their expensive t-shirts and awesome accessories. It’s not any baby who can rock a cushy Cthulhu play blanket, you know?
Craftster FicklePegasus has turned an office joke into a handmade gift fit for only the coolest of babies: a soft and cuddly Cthulhu, complete with tentacular arms of love that can hold toys to engage tykes.
Arcade cabinets are just cool–there’s no way around that. However, when they’re built completely from the ground up, in a whole nifty steampunk motif, complete with a little touch of Frankenstein? Then they even make that ol’ Pac-Gentleman look… okay, that’s still pretty incredible, too.
It plays games!
Maybe I haven’t been looking in the right places, but I haven’t noticed an overwhelming amount of crafts inspired by the tragically short-lived Firefly and the accompanying movie, Serenity. Even if I had, however, this little knit rendition of the ship would probably trump most of them.
