Turn Any Floor into an 8-bit Video Game Map with These Tiles
Sometimes I really miss those old epic quest RPG gaming titles like The Legend of Zelda. Nothing today really captures the excitement I felt back then while playing those games. These Quest 8-bit Mats sets from JBox are the perfect way to relive those old games.

Pixel Panties: 8-Bitini

Pixel Panties: 8-Bitini
Designers Sebastião Teixeira and Cesaria Martins have a pair of underwear for gamers who grew up during the 8-bit era. They’re called Pixel Panties. Frankly I’m surprised it took this long for someone to make something like this, and that Sebastião and Cesaria didn’t make a matching bra.

PixelBots: Making Things With Light! (And Robots!)

PixelBots: Making Things With Light! (And Robots!)
When I was growing up, one of my favorite toys was the good old Lite Brite. I’m guessing that it was an indication that I would later find myself hopelessly addicted to pixel art. Now, technologists are working on tiny robots which can create Lite Brite style art all on their own.

I was going to talk about a pixel art LED display that’s currently raising funds on Kickstarter when I remembered that I already saw something much better: Al Linke’s PIXEL. It turns out he’s also raising funds on Kickstarter for PIXEL V2, an improved version of his display.

Geeky Heroes Boiled Down to Basic Blocks

Geeky Heroes Boiled Down to Basic Blocks
Artist Adam Lister creates awesome watercolor paintings of iconic pop culture figures using rudimentary block shapes. The most meta of his images has to be the watercolor of Bob Ross – though I’m having a hard time making out any happy little trees.

Pixelated Zelda Cookies: 8-Bit Bites

Pixelated Zelda Cookies: 8-Bit Bites
It’s dangerous to go alone on an empty stomach. Take these. Doesn’t Link look delicious? Legend of Zelda, meet the legend of my hunger. These adorable and beautiful looking cookies were made Trinh Phan aka TheCookieCrave and they really are a geek work of art.

Beaded Bowser Descends from Your Wall

Beaded Bowser Descends from Your Wall
One of the more annoying parts of Super Mario World is when Bowser goes flying around in his clown-copter thingie at the end of the game. It’s just plain silly, and it’s kind of an annoying boss battle if you ask me.

Wake up Energized with a Zelda Life Bar on Your Headboard

Wake up Energized with a Zelda Life Bar on Your Headboard
By the time you go to bed at night, you’re pretty worn down from the day’s events. Your life bar must be close to zero. Some sleep will help and that life bar will be full in the morning.

Picard Quilt: Make it Sew

Picard Quilt: Make it Sew
Every time I went to my grandmother’s house growing up she was always working on a quilt of one sort or another. She offered to make me quilts multiple times but I didn’t care anything for handmade blankets back in the day.

Space Invaders Silver Pendants Drop Down and Invade Your Neckline

Space Invaders Silver Pendants Drop Down and Invade Your Neckline
Let’s face it. No matter how many times you fire your laser cannon, you’re never getting rid of all of those Space Invaders. Heck, they’ve been around for  35 years, so don’t count on them going anywhere any time soon.

Atari World Combines 8-Bit and Real Life

Atari World Combines 8-Bit and Real Life
When I was growing up, the Atari 2600 was a staple in family rooms everywhere. But despite the countless hours of entertainment these gaming systems provided, there’s no question they had primitive graphics. Imagine though if the Atari 2600 could have had real-world backgrounds for its games.

I Wish I Could Have Ate a Bit of This 8-Bit Mario Cake

I Wish I Could Have Ate a Bit of This 8-Bit Mario Cake
I always wondered how clean it was down in those pipes where Mario would duck into. I certainly wouldn’t want to jump into some green pipe sticking out of the sidewalk. While a real sewer pipe might not be so pleasant, this one is filled with nothing but tasty goodness.
