Artist Transforms Ugly Louis Vuitton Bags into Awesome Star Wars Sculptures

Artist Transforms Ugly Louis Vuitton Bags into Awesome Star Wars Sculptures
I’ve never really gotten the appeal of Louis Vuitton’s fashions. Not only are they ridiculously expensive, but you have to walk around with somebody’s ugly brand logo stamped all over your stuff. The way I figure it, they should pay you for the free advertising.

Nintendo NES Gamers’ Tournament Trophies

Nintendo NES Gamers’ Tournament Trophies
If these NES trophies existed way back in the day my shelves would be lined with them. I’m not afraid to say that I kicked butt on the old 8-bit Nintendo. I mean, sure I hardly saw the outside world and didn’t know what a girl was until I was like 25, but still.

Batman’s Tumbler Recycled from Dead PlayStation 2s
So you’ve got a couple of dead old video game consoles lying around. While you could just throw them in the trash, it’s better for you to recycle them. And what better than to turn your old game systems into Batman’s Tumbler?

iMac Pet Bed: The Ultimate Computer for Cats

iMac Pet Bed: The Ultimate Computer for Cats
There’s no denying that cats like technology. Whether they’re playing Fruit Ninja, stepping all over your keyboard, or playing the synthesizer, cats and tech go together like peanut butter and chocolate. So why fight this natural phenomenon?

Darth Vader Gets Upcycled: The Junk Side of the Force

Darth Vader Gets Upcycled: The Junk Side of the Force
We’re so used to seeing Darth Vader dressed in all black, but his iconic helmet really works well no matter what color it’s done in. Heck, even Hello Kitty Vader was pretty imposing. But I think that this version of Vader, built out of old bits of reclaimed electronics and other junk looks really awesome.

Milk Crate Stereo Puts the Hammer(s) Down

Milk Crate Stereo Puts the Hammer(s) Down

Tombox Speakers: The Upcycled Sound

Tombox Speakers: The Upcycled Sound
There’s something about old speaker housings, especially from the 60s and 70s. They are usually thick, big things that have a great look with design appeal. These speakers made from discarded old speakers that have been upgraded with new components.

Mariclaro Upcycled Bags: Made from Airbags, Car Upholstery and Other Weird Stuff
I never thought about reusing a spent airbag for much of anything, but it does make sense to upcycle this kind of durable material if you can. Toronto-based Mariclaro makes them all into backpacks and carryalls that are quite different from others that I’ve seen.

Recycled Ink Cartridges Get New Life as Lamps
If you regularly use an inkjet printer, you can certainly try and recycle your cartridges by refilling them with more ink. But get real – most of the time, your empties just end up in the dumpster.

Speaker Bot: Recycled Robot Plays Your iPod Tunes in Style
Looking for a unique dock for your iPod? You might want to check out Speaker Bot, a dock that looks like a retro 1950s robot. The 18.5″ tall Speaker Bot is an “assemblage robot”, or in layperson’s speak, a robot made from old junk.

Circuit Board Cufflinks for Formal Geeks

Circuit Board Cufflinks for Formal Geeks
Next time you need to go to a semiconductor semi-formal (see what I did there?), you might want to grab a pair of these clever geeky cufflinks made from old circuit boards. But unlike those shiny new 2010 Olympic medals, you can actually tell that these were upcycled from old circuitry.

Found Junk Becomes (Not So) Evil Robot

Found Junk Becomes (Not So) Evil Robot
According to Yllas, the artist who created these robot sculptures from old electronic parts, camera lenses, and other surplus junque – she was planning on building an evil robot. Instead she ended up with this guy, the Not So Evil Found Object Assemblage Bot.
