A massive disc recently installed in Lithuania’s capital city Vilnius shows a live view of what appears to be another normal street. But it’s actually showing the view from a twin disc located in Lublin, Poland, nearly 400 miles away.
One of the best parts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Avengers has got to be Mark Ruffalo as Hulk. He’s my favorite actor in the role, and does a great job doing the whole Jekyll and Hyde routine as the bounces between mild-mannered doctor and angry green monster.
Do you love the Toy Story series? Starting with Pixar’s 1995 classic, through last year’s Toy Story 4, the franchise been consistently packed with great characters, emotional story lines, and whimsical visuals. One of my favorite characters is the three-eyeballed alien species that Buzz Lightyear first encountered in the claw machine.
If you have a rampaging Hulk on your hands, you need Tony Stark to show up with his Hulkbuster suit and take care of business. But if Tony isn’t around, maybe this giant LEGO Hulkbuster statue will scare him away.
Musicians and things that can be smoked go together like people and vices. Overly realistic and thus useless analogy FTW! But if those things do have a space in your life, check out the Decktray. Made by artist Terry Griffiths, these functional artworks are ashtrays that look like turntables.
Looking for the perfect thing to greet guests in your foyer? Screw the potted plants and wall art and go for something a bit more dramatic. If I had the money kicking around (and my wife wouldn’t throw me out of the house for doing it,) I’d totally want this full-size Bioshock Big Daddy and Little Sister in my entryway.
The malignant tumor that is 3D extends its nauseating tendrils from its firm grasp of the big screen and TVs to an older media. Casio presented a combination of a proprietary rendering technique and a custom 3D printer, which when combined can make sculptures based on two dimensional pictures.
Wanna know how to make LEGO bend? Ask Jeff Sanders. He can’t change the shape of single bricks, but he can make sculptures with curved shapes using nothing but rectangular LEGO blocks. He calls his technique “brick bending.”
This calendar would make for a wonderful gift for fans of H.P. Lovecraft fans and the Cthulhu Mythos. Or naughty kids. In the case of the latter I suggest you don’t bother wrapping it – leave it open and make it so it’ll be the first thing they see when they wake up.
We’ve seen a table, a chair, classic artworks, and even a toilet made from gadget guts. Here’s a nice installation that would go well with those items. Made by UK-based artist Susan Stockwell, this map of the world is made of computer components.
Andrea Petrachi aka Himatic is the bizarro equivalent of that bad kid in the original Toy Story movie who enjoys torturing and destroying his toys. What Himatic does is create what he calls “cyber sculptures” out of discarded electronics, gadgets and toys.
This laminated origami sculpture of the late great Grand Master was masterfully created by Etsy seller and papercraft Jedi catamation. It’s about 3.5″ tall, or about one-tenth of Yoda, if the Star Wars Wikia is to be believed.
Sean Kenney has one of the best job titles in the world. Calling himself a “professional kid”, Kenney has been making artworks and models out of LEGO for several years now, and has been commissioned by several companies.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve always found circuit boards interesting. Yes, that partly means “I don’t understand what the hell is going on here”, but I really do find the patterns mysterious and amazing, because a human like me designed this, and it’s this engraved soul of the computer that lets me check out cat videos on YouTube.
deviantART member EatToast made a series of Pokémon sculptures for this year’s Otakon. She calls them Ugly Pokémon, because they are ugly Pokémon. I mean, if I was Ash and I had to catch these…these things, I’d rather use my bare fists and fight the monsters myself than keep some as companions.
Lockwasher creates these amazing robotic sculptures using objects that he found. I like the BR2D2, which is also called the BeertooD2, made from an old can of Heineken back in 2008. A second model, the BeertooD3 was created last year.
