Stormtrooper Eye Chart

Stormtrooper Eye Chart
I laughed out loud when I saw this image. Come on, isn’t it hilarious? Two stormtroopers giving you an eye exam, making sure you know exactly how they feel! My most recent eye exam was pretty painless, but you better believe that I would have preferred to read out loud these letters instead of the regular E-P-F-T-O-Z, etc…

LEGO Illusion: Poor Minifig Gets Escher’D

LEGO Illusion: Poor Minifig Gets Escher’D
M.C. Escher approves of this pic. The photo was taken by PBase user bbzippo way back in 2004, and won 4th place in the PBase forum’s Illusion challenge. I think it’s been Photoshopped – there’s something weird going on in the edge of the crossbar, right on top of the right post.

The Secret Life of Star Wars Toys

The Secret Life of Star Wars Toys
I really like this series of photos that shows us what all those Star Wars toys are up to after hours. Sure, keeping them in their boxes might preserve their resell value, but hey, toys need to have a life too!

The Teeny Tiny Pinhole Camera

The Teeny Tiny Pinhole Camera
This amazingly small pinhole camera was created by Francesco Capponi. As you can see, this camera is actually so small that it can fit on your thumb. Francesco calls this his Mini Lomo Pinhole, and although it really isn’t a Lomo, it’s incredibly small and cute, and this tiny pinhole camera can actually take pictures, which is even cooler.

Beetlecam Wildlife Robot Gets Up Close and Personal With the Lions

Beetlecam Wildlife Robot Gets Up Close and Personal With the Lions
Since they don’t have feelings (yet), it’s an obvious use for robots to send them into the battlefield to disarm bombs and IEDs. However, this is the first time that I’ve seen a robot used to do something that could be equally as life-threatening: getting face-to-face with untamed wildlife.

Start Wars: Star Wars Under Construction in Dubai

Start Wars: Star Wars Under Construction in Dubai
Star Wars were meant to happen a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but what if they actually happened on Earth? French photographer Cédric Delsaux imagines the scene if Star Wars was set in Dubai of all places.

Snap Shot: Frame It Like a Polaroid Picture

Snap Shot: Frame It Like a Polaroid Picture
We weren’t so happy with the PIC 1000, Polaroid’s overpriced revision of their classic instant cameras. For those who only really want an instant camera for the white borders on the pictures, here’s a cheap solution – a picture frame that’s nothing but a white border.

Control Your Girlfriend via Your PS3 Controller (You Wish)

Control Your Girlfriend via Your PS3 Controller (You Wish)
Gregor Collienne is a German photographer with a flair for the dramatic. I don’t think he really wants geeks to control our girlfriends via our video game controllers, but this image really caught my eye this week.

Imicroscope Lets Your iPhone Take Perfect Pics of the Miniature World Around Us
While I knew for a while that you could use the iPhone’s camera to take really close up pictures of stuff, this is the first time I’ve seen an app that’s designed to help you take high quality scientific images with your iPhone’s camera.

Flash From the Past: Polaroid Revives Instant Camera Line With the Pic 1000
Although Polaroid already has the PoGo – a digital camera that can also print pictures instantly – the upcoming PIC 1000 is the more faithful successor to their classic instant cameras. Not only does the PIC 1000 have the famous Polaroid body, the pictures it prints also features the classic white borders, thanks to the revival of good old Polaroid Color 600 instant film.

Tesla Coil Christmas Tree: Let’s Hope It Doesn’t Electrocute Santa
Christmas trees haven’t changed much in decades, but this innovative Christmas tree blows all of the others away, thanks to the use of a Tesla coil. Peter Terren made a similar tree two years ago, but he upped the ante this year with a 30-foot tree using a Tesla coil.
