This Han Solo LEGO pixel art from The Sydney Brick Show this past April is mindblowingly cool. If you aren’t familiar with the event, it’s an opportunity for Australian LEGO sculptors bring some of their creations and get together with other fans.
The UK town of Ipswich has an odd name, but that’s not what concerns us here. The town hosts an annual music and arts festival known as Switch Fringe, and this year there is a special addition to the program book.
In all honesty, it’s been a while since I dusted off my original NES copy of The Legend of Zelda, but it’s still one of the all time classic video games, IMHO. But even if you don’t play the game regularly, you could have a daily reminder of Link’s adventures thanks to this awesome Legend of Zelda quilt.
Okay, I actually don’t know if you could have produced these images with an 8-bit system, or if you would have needed a 16-bit one, but I still love the way these retro styled cityscapes look, no matter how many bits they required.
It’s probably the most oft repeated seven-word phrase in the history of gaming – but the admonition by the old man in The Legend of Zelda are wise words for life in general. After all, you should always bring a trusty companion on your life’s adventures.
People are going crazy for sweaters covered in prints. Some of them look really nice, but some of them are just best left as Photoshopped concepts. Pixel artist Drew Wise made several videogame designs so grown up gamers can get in on the fad too.
Okay arcade fans, prepare to have your mind blown. This stop-motion animation made from Post-It notes looks like real arcade game footage. It is completely amazing and has me nerding out. All of your favorites are represented.
I suppose you could put a Space Invaders mobile in any room you’d like, but if you’ve got a youngling in the nursery, then you’ll want to get them started right away on their path of geeky righteousness from the earliest age possible.
Yes we CAN! Most stores stack their food in the same old boring way, but there are some stores or should I say some people, that rise above the status quo and go above and beyond the call of duty – like the guys who set up Canstruction at the SouthCentre Mall in Calgary, Canada.
Some people relieve their stress by popping bubble wrap. Others exercise their creativity and showcase their talent by creating portraits using bubble wrap. And by ‘others’, we mean artist Bradley Hart.
He probably had to buy rolls and rolls of the stuff and he clearly spent a lot of time working on his project.
Whenever I get a chance, I like to dust off my arcade emulator and try to see if I can get any further at Donkey Kong than the first couple of levels. Even after all of these years, the game still kicks my ass every time.
Get your laser cannons out, folks. The invaders have arrived in your kitchen and you need to start blasting away at them ASAP. But unless you’ve got a cannon that fires an anti-magnetic field – or one of those stainless steel fridges like mine that won’t hold onto a magnet to save its life – you’ll soon be in a world of hurt.
If you’ve been following Technabob for a while, you know I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Space Invaders, so when I saw that these guys were working on a chess set inspired by the classic arcade game, it put a big grin on my face.
