The Everyday Life of Darth Vader

Even evil overlords put their pants on one leg at a time. Just because he has an evil empire to run, doesn’t mean his responsibility of personal hygeine and everyday duties comes to an end. In fact, for someone who interacts with so many acolytes, its important to smell fresh. Darth Vader, much like any universe-domineering dictator, still manages to ...

The Geekiest Game of Scrabble Ever

Scrabble is geeky enough to begin with, but you can imagine the depths of geekiness that can be reached limiting yourself to only words of geekage. The above board is the geekiest game of Scrabble I’ve ever seen played and likely the geekiest I’ll ever see. Even if you don’t use words like “vociferous” or “solipsism” you can still have ...

Realistic Sneakers Made Out of Paper

This is some extreme papercrafting. David Brownings created these pretty realistic-looking kicks using nothing but colored paper. I’d actually rock them if I knew they’d last longer than a few steps.

Impressionist Cake

Borrowing elements from both Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Monet’s lilies, I don’t know what would be more proper for this Impressionist Cake, eating it or hanging it on the wall. Whatever you might do with it, one thing’s for sure. Even though the cake steals elements from other well-known paintings, it takes a real artistic eye to paint, with ...

Gameboy Cake For the Tetris Fan

Every year around Halloween I go on a serious sugar bender. There’s something about this season that fuels the five-year-old inside of me. The problem is that I can literally look at a slice of cake and gain five pounds. So while this Game Boy cake looks extra scrumptious with its M&M Tetris design goin’ on, I think I might ...

Look, Knex are pretty good and I’mma let you finish, but LEGOs make the best foosball table of all-time! Hit the ...

The NES Console Guitar

The title of this post is in no way misleading. This is an actual working guitar made using an NES console! This must be the coolest damn mash-up in gaming history. I’ve heard people say gaming rocks, but this is ridiculous. Ridiculously awesome. Awesomely ridiculous. Awdiculous. Including Donkey Kong knobs and Mario switches, check out the video after the jump ...

Yoshi and Mario Wall Hanger

Made using an inkjet printer, sticker labels and a 1/4? foam board, the Mario Riding Yoshi wall hanging design wants to lick you to death, sort of like a sex-addicted prison-escapee, but now with more reptilian spice. Watch the mustache, I heard it can leave some rug burn. Link

Make Your Own Lawn Flamingo of Doom

Originally called “Flamingos with Fricken Laser Beams,” you too can create your very own Halloween-themed lawn flamingo of doom with this helpful phototutorial. The “fricken laser beams” title is slightly misleading as the doom flamingo has LED eyes rather than fricken’ laser beams. But either way, the eyes do glow. Ok, but what about the lawn gnomes of destruction? Link ...
