Bad Box Art Mega Man is the opposite of Doom Guy. The joke character came from the infamously ugly North American box art of the first Mega Man game. To be more specific, he’s the middle aged version of the dude in that horrendous drawing.
Here’s a fun project from Al Linke, the creator of the PIXEL. He used the board that he made for his pixel art LED frame to turn an LED matrix into a comically huge and interactive jewelry, which he affectionately calls the iBling.
Al flashed a low power firmware on the PIXEL board then wired it to a 16×32 LED matrix.
Kids are bizarre little creatures. One of the things a parent has to do is realize that they are often completely irrational, and there is no way to rationalize with them. I have had a conversation with my son more than once about not calling me at work with an emergency when that emergency is that the Wi-Fi is down and he can’t play on Xbox Live.
I guess I have always been a little overprotective of the innocence of my kids. They might not recognize certain sexual references in some things that adults get, but I still don’t want that stuff around them if I can help it.
A Borderlands fan got a funny and thoughtful proposal in the form of this well made ring box, which was made to look like a loot chest from the irreverent first-person shooter. It even has the colorful information pop up, complete with funny quotes and stats.
Sadly, I couldn’t find the geeky artisan behind this sweet gesture.
Casual hoops fans may not be familiar with NBA shooting guard Troy Daniels, but that might change soon thanks to a news channel’s blunder. Houston channel KRIV Fox 26 recently interviewed the three-point specialist over the phone about his surprise trade from the championship contender Houston Rockets to the rebuilding Minnesota Timberwolves.
If you don’t have kids, then it might be hard to appreciate exactly how hilariously insightful they can be at times. Take this little five-year-old British girl talking with her father about the merits of the outfit that Princess Leia wore in that famous Jabba the Hutt scene.
‘Tis the season. Even robots are getting into the Christmas spirit this year. This video titled Autonomous Christmas Lab 2014 is all about robots celebrating a human holiday. Not satisfied to just take our jobs, they are taking our holidays now too.
Hobbits normally keep their homes pretty clean, but this Hobbit Hole is one that you do not want to visit. Unless you are a cat. Every other week, the folks at AWE me get some of Hollywood’s top prop makers to build one-of-a-kind items.
Thingmade has invented one of the most annoying neon signs on the planet: a physical version of the loading icon. Put it in front of a teenager and he will immediately be unable to even. Such is the power of the Gyroscopic Illuminated Figure.
Japanese product design studio A.P. Works has an idea for a placemat that will make it seem like your food and dinnerware are warping spacetime itself, because the placemats’ lines curve right where the spoon, fork and plate should be.
It would be a lot cooler if the placemats actually curved around objects placed on them.
Do you know someone who’s always bragging about his Rubik’s Cube solving skills? Get the Pillow 13x13x13 IQ Cube and lob it at that person’s head. Then dare him to solve it. Not only is it an irregular Rubik’s Cube knockoff, it’s also freakin’ huge.
Geyser of Awesome co-editor Maika Keuben is a huge Cthulhu fan, so come December she adds a maddening twist to her Holiday decorations. Aside from putting together her ever evolving Cthulhumas tree, Maika also made a Cthulhumas wreath.
Maika spray painted several Archie McPhee Finger Tentacles and LEGO octopus figures green then glued them to her custom made wreath.
Any fan of The Simpsons should recognize this image immediately. Mr. Sparkle is a Japanese dishwashing detergent mascot who looks a lot like a certain Homer Simpson. Now you can wear this Mr. Sparkle shirt and be a walking advertisement for the dish detergent – and tick Homer off in the process.
I can recall thinking when my son was first born that raising kids was a snap. He slept a lot and all I really needed to do was give him a bottle, change his diaper, and try to not get peed on while doing it.
Well, it had to happen sooner or later and now the trailer for Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron has been sweded. And the end result is pretty hilarious. Dumb Drum did an awesome job since this sweded trailer looks completely ridiculous.
