This offering from Crazy Case is exactly what you could have asked to get your nerd cells ticking. Haters might call it impractical, but you know it is awesome, especially when you get to see it in action. The DMC-12 has amazing detail with lights and wires that glow when you get a call or notifications.
This bottle is so hilariously politically incorrect, it totters to the point of being shocking. Li’l Lager is built like a beer bottle, which makes this otherwise simple bottle quite a shocker. It’s a BPA-free, phthalate free plastic bottle with a food-grade silicone nipple that won’t really intoxicate any children, though its shape and look will provide fun times for onlookers. Li’l Lager is expected to be available in April, and is tentatively priced at $12.
The movie will be in theaters on May 1.
Travel posters are so retro, but also so very futuristic when NASA makes some of them, for exoplanets. The freshly released set includes three exoplanets, the Kepler-186f, HD 40307g, and the Kepler-16b. Of the set, Kepler-186f is remarkable because it falls within the habitable zone of its star, which is redder and cooler than our sun. Speaking of cool, the Kepler-16b is located in a binary star system, where you could see two suns in the sky at once, much like Tattooine in Star Wars. Enjoy these posters here, or if you would like one for your room, head on to the NASA website to download (much) higher resolution versions that would be totally awesome as posters.
Squirrels have now been upgraded to Cybermen, it’s a whole new challenging world for the Doctor now. The Cyberman head used to be a shower radio, but once that gave way, Doctor Who fan Emma Young very creatively converted it into a nut feeder. The mask is packed with nuts and hangs a small distance above the ground. Scavenging squirrels inevitably must stand to reach those nuts, and inadvertently become Cybermen. That’s so much more efficient than the usual tricks Cybermen employ. Watch a video of the mask in action.
The giant Birdsnest does not leave much to be desired by way of looks, or the allusions of comfort. Birds would probably have little use for a nest like this, but humans, we’re sure, would enjoy its comforts and novelty. We can’t say we’re in love with the jagged wooden edges, but overall, the design from OGE CreativeGroup is quite lovely.
Pulp fiction covers are at their nostalgic best, and so are a number of Nintendo games. Artist Ástor Alexander put together those two greats and created a set of images of pulp fiction covers for Nintendo games, and a few more, but we’ll go with the majority of the set. They are pretty darn cool, and I’m pretty sure I want to read a Nintendo game inspired pulp fiction novel.
Chinese photographer Zhang Bojun has a nice collection of plaid designs in his portfolio. These “designs” are digital manipulations created from overhead images from the vast sea of humans that are Beijing’s streets. The artist photographs the swarms of people that throng the streets of Beijing and repeats observed patterns, while reducing the actual image to a bird’s eye view. These images take the form of interlocking designs that are usually seen in plaid fabric.
Okay, the people might not be that random, and most of it is staged, but the reactions and the execution is priceless.
Well, there you have it. The first official teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie will be in theaters on December 18 next year. I can hardly wait!
