I always loved the game Berzerk back when it hit arcades all the way back in 1980. But for some reason, it’s one of those few classic games that doesn’t get much love these days (although technabob’s mascot was “borrowed” from the game).
Math geeks like pretty stuff, too, regardless of any nasty rumors you may have heard from the proverbial peanut gallery. But pretty things can be smart, you know, like this ring inspired by the Fibonacci numbers.
I’m not sure what it is about iPhone cases designed to look like other gadgets, but I always find them amusing. The mobile device subject to iPhonification this time – the Sony PSP.
Created by textile artist RabbitRampage, this handmade felt case ($30 USD) looks just like a PSP – if it were made out of felt and stitches.
This Xbox 360 faceplate isn’t actually bloody (I hope!), but it is certainly evocative of the horror of a zombie apocalypse–something that is becoming a more and more common experience with Xbox games every day. Seems like zombies are everywhere lately, bursting out of zombie games and invading everything else.
So many Marios, and so little time… or all the time in the world. Really, it’s a kind of point-of-view issue here. Are you a half-full kinda person? Then you’re looking at all the Marios and all the time.
Sure, there are thousands of iPod docks out there, but how many of them were printed out on somebody’s desktop? Not many, I bet. This unusual dock was rendered using a MakerBot desktop 3D printer.
Will Langford from BotMade used his desktop MakerBot CNC to create this iPod/iPhone charging dock.
The convergence of the Twilight craze and tech geek-hood was bound to happen at some point. In fact, it may have happened already, but heck if I was paying attention. These Team Jacob decals, however, are as hard to ignore as Taylor Lautner’s crazy muscles.
The world is tragically short on Animal Crossing crafts. Sure, occasionally someone turns up with a KK Slider plush or a handmade knick-knack, but the adorable world of Animal Crossing should be everywhere. It should be up there with Katamari Damacy and Loco Roco–at least, visually–but for the most part, Animal Crossing is MIA from the geek craft scene… which is why we have to cherish these things when they do finally turn up.
Ahhh, the holidays are nearly upon us, and you know what that means: Pac-Man. He’s already invaded weddings, after all. Now he can also hang out under your Christmas tree, if you are arboreally inclined. Though I’m sure this tree skirt could be spread about under other things if you were really determined.
Looking for a fun way to wrap your presents this holiday season? Nothing says “I’m a complete gamer geek” like these Tetris block gift boxes.
Each colorful Tetris brick-shaped box measures 1 3/8 inches (3.5cm) deep (other dimensions vary), which means they’re not going to be big enough to hold that Lexus that you planned on giving me this Christmas.
It all comes down to this, people: either you’re with Pac-Man, or you’re with the ghosts. If you’re dedicated to the clear side of evil, make sure you warn everyone you see by labeling yourself somehow.
Sometimes you just have to warm your head, so you might as well do it in style… in Legend of Zelda style, at that. Link’s hats are part of the iconic character’s charm, and now you can dress your head just like perennial hero, so long as you’ve got a handful of rupees to spare.
Apparently, cute lil’ monster faces are the order of the day for adorable handmade gadget cases. We’ve seen the softer, tamer side of the trend, but Etsy storefront ArtsiBitsi has been invaded with a whole new gadget-eating breed.
These smartly designed iPhone (3G/3GS/iPod Touch) cases embrace not only a simple and elegant design philosophy, they’re actually quite practical too.
Designed by Minneapolis textile artist Angie Davis of Byrd & Belle, these unique iPhone cases protect your precious digital cargo inside a thick and cushy blanket of Merino wool felt and a soft Egyptian cotton interior lining.
