Mini Media Centre Case Design Of The 1950s

The 1950s saw the birth of many things we still detest to this day, like beatniks and Communist Cuba. While this Mini Media Centre designed by British design student Thomas Thomassen looks like the tail light of a ’57 Chevy. Except this thing was actually designed in 2006. It reminds me of the Happy Days, when my buddy Fonz would ...

Space Invaders Cross-stitched Guitar Strap

This guitar strap fills me with geek envy. Renee of The Domestic Scientist made this cross-stitched guitar strap for her husband themed after the Atari classic Space Invaders. She is well versed in the art of geekery and even bakes her own 20 sided die cookies. That’s pretty geeky. Next, she’ll be modding her husband’s guitar. We’re hoping she sticks ...

Stone Age Is Now The ‘Stoned Age’

For a long time, scientists have suspected that humans have an ancient history of drug use. Without any proof, such speculations become nothing more than the rantings of a scientist doped out on hallucinogens. Now, valid proof that humans from the Stone Age dabbled in the arts of “getting fucked up” have appeared on the Caribbean island of Carriacou. Quetta ...

Old PCs Used To Create Virtual Sunset

This setup, dubbed “Mauritian Sunset ” by UK-based artist Sandy Smith, is made up of a ton of old, obsolete computers and monitors. Together they create a wall-sized installation that produces beautiful colors that resemble a “sunset” of some kind. While I don’t see the whole sunset thing, I think it’d make as an awesome lighting setup for a party ...

A Blast From The Past Of Geekiness

I can’t get enough of corny retro video game commercials. When I saw this Street Fighter 2 Turbo promotional video posted on Dooby Brain, I just had to share it here.
