If you’re a big Mac fanatic, you might want to check out this item I stumbled onto over at eBay today. It’s an authentic “Eddy” award statue, originally presented by MacUser Magazine (more recently given out by Macworld).
Originally awarded back in 1996 to Edmark software (now defunct), this trophy is a great conversation piece for any computer geek.
When I first read about this, I thought to myself that it’s just a plain, black acrylic cube, but then I read on and found out what this thing exactly does.
A Tool to Deceive and Slaughter is actually a piece of conceptual art by Caleb Larsen.
Die-hard Final Fantasy VII fans may be clamoring for a current gen version of the classic RPG, but apparently in China, people are buying the remaining units of NESes in the world, and so de-makes are all the rage.
You can’t throw a Koopa shell without running into some sort of device that can play at least a few classic Nintendo games, and most of those are portable, too. So the game’s open. Essentially, everyone can have a portable SNES (of sorts)… so how far are you willing to go to stand out?
I don’t know if he’s the action figure counterpart of console modder Ben Heck, but the customizer who goes by the moniker Jin Saotome does have an extremely long list of modified or custom made action figures.
This unbelievable bit of geek art is purportedly the largest LEGO block statue of Mario ever created. It sure looks like it to me. And it’s definitely WAY bigger than this one.
The mammoth LEGO Mario was created by Dirk VH, and is made up of over 40,000 individually placed bricks.
Okay I don’t really know the shipping details of the auction, but a grandma by the name of Marian Goodall was indeed put up for sale on eBay… by her granddaughter.
Ah, kids; sometimes you just wanna hug ’em, just give ’em a good old one-handed hug, and then punch their little heads in with your free hand.
Just about the only thing good about the recent Transformers movie are the new versions of our beloved Autobots and Decepticons. Although I’m sure some of you will say that even the new designs suck. Also the movie changes POVs and angles every nanosecond so we hardly got to appreciate the designs anyway.
Millions of people around the world are starving, and will probably kill themselves for food. Wait that doesn’t make sense. You know what else doesn’t make sense? That someone out there thinks he can charge $15,000 (USD) for a plastic plate.
The Tumbler in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight is arguably the most bad-ass version of the Batmobile ever. It’s a damn stealth tank is what it is. Now, thanks to auctioneer tully712, you can have your own Tumbler.
Well, this all-in-one Atari 2600 mod isn’t exactly what I’d call “portable”, but the guy who built it certainly deserves props for creativity.
This hacked-together Atari 2600 Portable goes by the name “Stella-Tubby” – which does a good job summing up its less than svelte form-factor as a handheld gaming console.
I’m undecided on the custom My Little Pony phenomenon. Every time I want to like it, I see something completely outrageous like these Silent Hill ponies. Pyramid Head does not inspire love in me. Well, maybe a little, in a twisted way.
There is nothing about this picture that doesn’t disturb me on some level.
Shortly after hearing about HP’s Photosmart Premium with Web Touch, the world’s first printer to have its own apps, we now have Vizio announcing that their high end XVT (Extreme Vizio Technology, if you were wondering) line of LCD HDTVs will have their own internet apps as well.
