Xbox 360 Bejeweled in Swarovski Crystals: for Videogame Playas

Bioshock 2 Cosplay: Big Sister is a Skinny Dude

Bioshock 2 Cosplay: Big Sister is a Skinny Dude
Nathan Sharratt’s Big Sister costume looks as menacing as its video game counterpart: When Bioshock was released, Nathan Sharatt made a Big Daddy costume. Now that the game’s sequel is out, it makes sense that he’d make a Big Sister costume too.

Recycled Cassette Tape Neckties: Audible Wear

Recycled Cassette Tape Neckties: Audible Wear
Alyce Santoro’s Sonic Fabric line of neckties not only look cool, but they should hold a special appeal for New Yorkers: they’re made using 50% colored thread and 50% cassette tape, and the latter has been recorded with “loops and samples collected on and under the streets of NYC.”

The Armory has a 100-item Nerd Purity Test with questions ranging from reasonable (Have you ever programmed a computer?) to absurd (Do you know the Latin name for the fruit fly?) to just plain hilarious (Is your weight less than your IQ?).

3rd Person Driving in Real Life: a Panoramic View of Failure

3rd Person Driving in Real Life: a Panoramic View of Failure
A lot of gamers – myself included – prefer to use the third-person point of view when driving vehicles in video games. I just find it easier to steer if I can see how far my vehicle is from a turn; in first-person I always end up steering too late.

Star Wars Uncut: the Force of Crowdsource

Star Wars Uncut: the Force of Crowdsource
A remake of Star Wars: A New Hope will come out soon, but it won’t be a re-master, and it won’t feature big-time actors. Using the unlimited power of the Internet, A New Hope has been split into 472 15-second scenes, and the remake of each scene is up to any willing contributor, free to stamp their own unique take on the geektastic classic.

Pacman the Movie: No Fun and Games
So you think Pac-Man likes eating those yellow pellets huh? You think the brightly colored maze and ghosts are cute? Think again!

D20 Soap: Roll for Freshness

D20 Soap: Roll for Freshness
You’ll never fail a Cleanliness check with the D20 Geeksoap. This 4 oz bar – dice? – of soap is made of “natural oatmeal-based vegetable glycerin and moisturizers, enriched with aloe and vitamin E” and comes in several scents.

Marvel Comics iPad App: a Comic Book Store in Your Hand

Everyone expected a comic app for the iPad, and Marvel delivered.

LEGO Boardroom Table: Work and Play Clicking Together
Who says LEGOs have no place in the grown-up world? The table was made by abgc architecture for ad agency Boys And Girls. The agency revamped their new Dublin offices, which had “décor that was decidedly solicitory” and turned it into a simple and bright space similar to an art gallery, with the LEGO table as the centerpiece.

Mediated Mortal Kombat: an Argument for Ultraviolent Fighting Games

Mediated Mortal Kombat: an Argument for Ultraviolent Fighting Games
