We’ve seen our share of geeky wedding cakes here at Technabob. Usually they stick to one of the couple’s favorite geek interests. Maybe two if they can’t decide. But what do you do if you love all of the things?
I never really understood the point of Stormtrooper armor. Blasters go right though the stuff, making it useless except for looking cool. A geek named Scott Loxley has been walking across Australia wearing his Stormtrooper armor and recently that armor might have saved his life.
Back in 2011, we featured Michael Curry’s Mario Kart-inspired remote-controlled cars. He has since uploaded the improved 3D files along with the instructions and the parts list for the cars on Thingiverse. Maker Kart, here we come!
Aside from the 3D printed parts, you’ll need to buy other parts such as a DC motor, a micro servo and skateboard bearings.
When you have a newborn son and want to give him some cool toys, I can’t think of anything better than making something yourself. That’s what Jonathan G. did here, making these cool laser-engraved wood blocks for his child.
I love a good wreath during the holidays. But forget all of your pine cones and glittery ornaments. A wreath should be geeky and show everything that you love on it. Well, the folks over at Our Nerd Home have created just such a wreath.
Think you have an infatuation with food? Well, as always, you’ve been one-upped. Carl Warner, artist and designer, is more of a foodie than you will ever be.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are pretty fearsome, even if they are pizza-eating slobs who live in the sewers. (Read: unwanted outcasts of society.) Combine this level of fierce physical ability with the disciplined battle techniques of Jedi Knights, and what do you get?
The new Zack Snyder Superman movie will be arriving before you know it, but for now you have to get your fix elsewhere. In the meantime, check out this amazing LEGO Superman mosaic created by Dave Ware.
Old cabinet cards are pretty cool. These early photographs are mementos from another time that tell the stories of forgotten lives, leaving but an image for history to remember them by and fill in the blanks.
Back in the old days, it was only bored grandmothers that crocheted and all that was produced was a pair of socks, or maybe a scarf or a blanket. These days everybody is doing it and they are making some awesomely geeky things.
Tetris is one of those classics that will always be around in one form or another. It’s available on the NES, the Game Boy, nearly every other console, and now your wrists. These officially-licensed accessories will compliment your shirt sleeves with just the right amount of geekiness.
Show your allegiance to your favorite game console with these PS3 and XBox 360 rings. They will deck your digits in tiny replica controllers, upping your geek gaming cred and proclaiming your side in the console wars.
