I have trouble understanding why anyone would want a fake 3D clone of themselves, but hey, who really understands the Japanese? One shop in Tokyo, Japan, has decided to offer realistic replicas of people to discerning customers.
BioShock 2 doesn’t even exist yet and already the artisans of the world are hard at work on the sequel to 2K’s alternate-history title. A doll fashioned to look like one of the game’s Big Daddy characters was shown in the sequel’s beautiful (and creepy) trailer, and now that same doll has been recreated in loving detail.
The word Matryoshka isn’t exactly a part of the English vernacular, but once you realize that it’s really just the Russian name for those little nesting dolls your grandmother has sitting on her mantle, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
These robotroyshka dolls are one tricky mashup: they combine Russian nesting dolls, crochet, and robots into one deliciously adorable blend.
I spotted these on the crafster forums. The ever-clever RhymeswOrange crocheted them by hand, and each one has a different felty face!
There’s no reason that the pillows on your couch have to be square, round or rectangular. Why shouldn’t they reflect your Star Wars addiction like anything else?
These plush versions of classic characters from the Star Wars universe are just too cool.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Russian craft of Matryoshka, they’re those little stacking wooden dolls that fit inside one-another, gradually getting smaller and smaller. Designer Art Lebedev has taken these traditional dolls and put a geeky spin on them, adding data storage measurements to each one.
Who says that Star Wars has to be all about manly things like lightsabers, Death Stars and Darth Vader? Why can’t it be about butterflies, puppies and playing with dolls?
Crafter Sammi Resendes of Geek Central Station sure thinks that the classic sci-fi epic can be just as sweet as a roomful of cuddly kittens rolled in confectioners sugar.
As much as Japan provides us with some amazing inventions and top-notch consumer electronics, they’re also responsible for some of the most oddball, eccentric stuff out there.
In case you were worried about misplacing your memory stick, or embarrassed by its unsightly looks, you can now hide your USB memory stick in the bowels of this keychain doll from Elecom.
