Star Wars’ Old Republic Forces Its Way Into Times Square

Star Wars’ Old Republic Forces Its Way Into Times Square
I’ve seen loads of different Star Wars promos over the years, but this epic Star Wars battle is a pretty good one. To celebrate the official launch of BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic video game, EA set an army of Jedi and Sith loose on Times Square, lightsabers in hand.

Proposition One: X-rayed Objects without X-rays

Proposition One: X-rayed Objects without X-rays
Ever thought about what your gadgets would look like when they’re X-rayed? Or how would they look if you would have X-ray vision? Well, Spanish photographer Max de Esteban surely asked himself this question when he decided to create this series of photos of X-rayed objects that he called Proposition One.

Fire-Beathing Dragon DJ Booth Lights Up the Night

Fire-Beathing Dragon DJ Booth Lights Up the Night
This giant illuminated dragon looks like the lovechild of Tron and Burning Man given wings. If you were lucky, you would have seen this beast on Saturday, when artists Teddy Lo and Ryan Doyle showed off their art car at New York’s Robot Heart-O-Ween.

MarioNYC Map: A Guide to the Apple Empire

MarioNYC Map: A Guide to the Apple Empire
I know more about Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom than New York and its citizens, so pardon me if I’m not terribly excited about Jesse Eisemann’s MarioNYC. It’s an animated map of New York City done Super Mario World style, complete with names of places and pixel versions of famous landmarks, like the Apollo Theater, Coney Island and the Empire State Building.

Artist Implants USB Drives Into Walls, Makes File Sharing Infinitely Cooler
You might know Aram Bartholl as the man who came up with CAPTCHA business cards. Bartholl is making waves once more with yet another clever and still geeky work of art.

Apple Macbook Pro and iPhone Cake Looks Way Too Good to Eat

Apple Macbook Pro and iPhone Cake Looks Way Too Good to Eat
This amazingly intricate cake by New York’s BCake is an edible version of an aluminum MacBook Pro, along with a delicious iPhone among other things. The centerpiece of this geeky cakestravaganza is an aluminum MacBook Pro laptop, complete with a highly detailed keyboard, and LCD (that’s Lickable Candy Deliciousity) display with an on-screen message to its lucky recipient, Victoria – who apparently is a fan of the SuperFriends, too.

Mario Hits the Streets of New York

Mario Hits the Streets of New York
Mario, as seen on the streets of New York City (on 23rd st between 10th and 11th). I have a funny feeling that whatever is down at the other end of those pipes is a lot less pleasant than the bowels of the Mushroom Kingdom.
