Zombie Spock Salutes His Fellow Undead

Greetings fellow zombies. Our leader has spoken. Our orders are the same as they were yesterday and the day before that. Live long and… eat braaaaaiins. A simple command that us zombies will be happy to oblige. OM NOM NOM. If Captain Kirk doesn’t show up for dinner, you might want to notify the proper authorities. Unless you live by ...

Rubik’s Cube for the Blind, Part Deux: The Ugly One

Alright, let’s just be honest here. This Rubik’s Cube isn’t going to be winning any beauty pageants in some alternative universe where Rubik’s Cubes actually have intelligence and hold their own contests. Unless, of course, Rubik’s Cubes have a whole different definition of beauty. Maybe multi-colored, multi-textured, torture device-looking gadgets are their definition of a really hot bod. Probably not though. Unlike ...

Parchment Gas Masks Could Save Your Life and Reputation

Designed for Iceland’s design festival DesignMarch by Reykjavik-based designer Sruli Recht, these Parchment Gas Masks are composed of the simplest materials, just folded parchment and a few gadgety doodads, yet are both effective and might I say, pretty damn bad ass. Each mask contains respirators with replaceable filters, so the actual fume filtration system should work nicely while letting you ...

Lady Gaga Cookies

In homage to the greatest thing to happen to pop in decades, fffireburns and their friend Matt created these awesome Lady Gaga cookies, inspired by some of her more notable and unorthodox outfits.

Mario Meets Michelangelo: La Piet Goes Geek

Based on Michelangelo’s famed sculpture, La Piet (which you can see after the jump), designer Kordian Lewandowski used a block of polystyrene foam to complete his very own work of art – the Nintendo-inspired Game Over sculpture. Measuring slightly taller than an averaged sized man (seems to be about six-feet tall), Game Over mixes the drama of Renaissance art with ...

1-Down Mushroom Could Just Ruin a Plumber’s Day

Even fictional plumber’s have nightmares. And if Mario does in fact dream, this is 1-Down Mushroom is surely the culprit that keeps him up at night. While he’s never actually seen one in the wild (or so he tells the cops), in fact their actual existence is questionable, his mother used to tell him that if he didn’t go to ...

Braille Rubik’s Cube for the Blind

The world of a blind geek must be a difficult one. Many of the luxuries we take for granted (watching Star Wars, reading fanfiction, witnessing Steve Jobs unveil the newest device in the Apple arsenal) just aren’t possible for the blind to the extent that the fully-functional among us have become accustomed to. Imagine Star Wars without being able to ...

Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter and Alice Come to Life Through LEGOs

While I’ve heard mixed reviews of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (as is typical with Burton films), there’s no denying the charm of these Alice in Wonderland-inspired mini LEGO sculptures. Including the Mad Hatter (played by a very Madonna-esque Johnny Depp in Burton’s outing) and Alice herself. I believe designer Tommy Williamson was going for a relatively minimalist theme, using as few ...

Steve Jobs Cheese Head is Actually Pretty Creepy

The second I saw this head I couldn’t help but be reminded of Hannibal Lector and his preference for dining on human flesh. This is almost too realistic to eat, unlike the orange-yellow Cheddar color of the Lincoln Cheese bust. Something tells me I’d get that weird, uncanny feeling when it came time to dig in to the Steve Jobs ...
