I spend so much time in front of a computer that I do see myself sometimes being buried with one. However, keyboards are definitely a nice piece of technology, which can be used in a variety of different ways.
We’ve seen a few Steve Jobs action figures try to come to market over the last few years. So far, Apple has stepped in and crushed every single one of those action figures. An artist going by the name XVALA has decided to make his own Steve Jobs “sculptures” that are sure to come under fire by Apple’s legal squad.
This wouldn’t be the first, most accurate, or even the first reinterpreted version of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Gun I’ve ever seen, but it might just be the most awesome. Instead of being made out of slick plastic or fiberglass, this version is handcrafted from more traditional materials.
Remember Evan Bacon, the kid who built the life-size Batman LEGO? Well the now 14-year-old LEGO fanatic is back with another sizeable superhero creation. This time, Evan crossed over from the DC Comics to the Marvel universe, creating a life-size model of Iron Man, entirely from LEGO bricks.
Chairs are more than just pieces of furniture. At times, they can also be random yet awesome pieces of artwork, like the Enginering Temporality chair by Design Academy graduate Tuomas Markunpoika Tolvanen.
Many people regard Bigfoot as nothing more than a hoax or an urban legend. Scientists have disputed the very existence of the creature for years, but it has always been an important element in American folklore.
Transformers should always carry their own alcoholic beverages. That way they could drink a toast with Shia LaBeouf after they kick each others asses and wreck our cities with their huge bodies. If Transformers did carry wine with them, I imagine they would look just like this.
3D printers are changing the world – now on a microscopic scale as well. Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology have perfected printing 3D objects at the nanoscale and it looks like they are having a great time playing with their new toy.
Katamari Damacy is as recognizable for its bright and happy graphics as for its unique gameplay. But this somber sculpture featuring the Prince in the titan Atlas’ iconic pose doesn’t look inappropriate at all, especially when you consider that the Prince is the only productive entity in the game’s story, the task of rebuilding the heavenly bodies resting on his tiny shoulders.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That statement pretty much sums up why some people find certain things beautiful, while others may regard it as simply atrocious. But these multi-perspective shadow sculptures give that old saying a new twist, because even the same eye can behold different things, depending on the light.
In 2011, Volkswagen had the best Super Bowl commercial, featuring a diminutive Darth Vader. This year’s commercial was fun, but it didn’t have the Star Wars tie-in as its main theme. Maybe this what Volkswagen should have done for their 2012 Superbowl commercial instead.
If you’d like to have your own zen garden but don’t have the real estate or the skills to maintain one, Simon Hallam’s invention may be a good alternative. Hallam’s Zen Table has a glass-covered surface filled with silicone beads.
Take a careful look at this bust of the Dark Lord of the Sith. Notice anything strange about it? Gaze deeply into Vader’s eyes. Look closer, and you’ll notice that it’s made from various bits and bobs of found junk from the cutlery drawer (and other antique stuff from your Nana’s house).
