Cabestan Nostromo watch is full of gears

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2010

The Cabestan Nostromo watch is one of those watches that you stare at in amazement and picture all of those gears turning. It was inspired by the ship from the Alien movie, hence the name. The Nostromo combines traditional watchmaking with “retro-futuristic audacity”‘

I can only assume that that describes the titanium case and Superluminova phosphorescent coating. You know this one is going to cost you quite a bit.

Alien sculpture made from 1,200 lbs of motorcycle steel

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2010

There are few things scarier than the Aliens from Alien, even when they are made from steel. This is the work of three artists from the Irish company RoboSteel, who gathered 4,000 pieces of steel and then welded together this “Alien Queen”.

This 8-foot sculpture would be even scarier than the one in Ridley Scott’s film, because it’s right there in your face. What’s not scary is that it is green. 90% of the Alien’s 1,200 pounds of parts are recycled from Yamaha motorcycles.

USB Alien with Illuminated Tongue

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on November 20th, 2009

USB Alien with Illuminated TongueCheck out this awesome USB Alien figure. Since it plugs into your USB port, it must have some storage right? At least 2GB. Nope. Apparently all it does is stick its illuminated tongue out.

The head or limbs don’t even move. Why they wouldn’t give it storage, we have no idea. It’s supposed to be scary, but it’s actually pretty cute. Unless you are a pint sized Ripley, in which case this thing is pretty easy to kill.

Alien USB drive

Alien USB driveThis Alien USB Drive made by Etsy seller MikaEle is hand carved from wood. We love the detail, especially the realistic looking fangs. The USB connection slides in and out with the push of a button so you can display him when not in use.

It comes with 4GB of storage space. If you want it you better be quick, it’s one of a kind, which is why it’s priced at $155 over at MikaEle’s Shop on Etsy. Sure, that’s a lot of dough, but we’re talking an Alien head here.

Alien Hanging Lamp is not in good taste

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on August 16th, 2009

Alien Hanging Lamp is not in good tasteThis Alien hanging lamp is pretty creepy. Is it an alien disguised as sperm, or sperm disguised as an alien. Either way, it isn’t a clever disguise. Who wants to sit at a table under sperm suspended from the ceiling? No one wants a sperm attack when eating a little dinner or just chillin’ with friends.

The lamp is described like so. It’s “organic shape is reminiscent of a strange, otherworldly creature sliding down a rope, gently and almost weightlessly radiating a warm and graceful light”. Whatevs. Call it what you want. This is dinner by spermlight. If you dig the design, these will cost you a totally reasonable $529.

Intergalactic Juicer UFO

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on July 16th, 2009

Intergalactic Juicer UFOThey’ve come to steal our juice. Guard the stores. Defend the vending machines. They can have Prune juice, but I will fight them to the death for the rest. The UFO Intergalactic Juicer UFO Juicer is available in three colors. Pink, lime green, and navy blue, each with their own design on the spacecraft.

The juicer has a plastic filter with cut out shapes for straining the pulp, because even aliens don’t like pulp. The saucer separates for easy cleaning and has a bottom hole for the juice to drain out. I want it to be known right now that if I catch any alien scum stealing Snapple, I’m popping a cap in his intergalactic ass. Not on my watch man.

Alien squid fights a giant robot in Japanese tourism videos

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on March 26th, 2009

Alien squid fights a giant robot in Japanese tourism videosHow do you get tourists to visit your land? Make it very clear that there is a chance that a giant robot and squid will battle it out during your stay. That’s apparently what the city of Hakodate, Japan was thinking. They’ve been producing official tourism videos unlike anything we’ve ever seen.

They’re action-packed and feature famous landmarks as giant robots battle a mechanical squid hijacked by aliens. It’s pretty awesome. I don’t know if I’ll visit anytime soon, but I sure enjoyed the flick. First video below.

Alien Abduction lamp

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2009

Alien Abduction lampThere are few things cooler or more awesome than seeing a cow being lifted into a flying saucer. Though the cow may disagree. Haven’t witnessed this with your own eyes in the night sky? Here’s the next best thing.

The antenna on top is the on/off switch. It comes in a plain version with just the saucer and light ray and you can also get the more humorous cow abducting edition. The Alien Abduction Lamp is in the functional prototype stage and not yet available, sadly. Hopefully soon as I know the creator has been at it for some time.

Alien PS3 case mod

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2009

Alien PS3 case modIt’s Ripley’s console of choice. She plays it while wearing a Mech-suit just in case she has to hurl it out into space. Granted, it should feature a baby alien popping out of it’s chest somewhere, but it’s still a pretty awesome mod. We have the perfect furniture to accompany it.

This beast was created with super heated epoxy putty, that was sculpted and cooled. When the material cools it becomes as hard as metal, so it’s permanently creepy.

Alien CD rack, because UFOs have CD players

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2009

Alien CD rack, because UFOs are powered by CDsIt’s not all abducting cows and humans. Aliens love music on outdated media. This may be because UFOs are only outfitted with Cd players or it may be that UFOs actually use CDs for fuel. Who can say?

But get yourself one of these decoy alien CD racks and it will keep your CDs safe. Any thieving grey bastard who aims to steal your tunes will think another of his kind has gotten there first and head to the next house. This keeps your tunes safe and anal probes far away from you.

Alien Wall Plaque is scary decor

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2009

Alien Wall Plaque is scary decorThe Roswell the Alien Wall Plaque has a few different uses. For one, it makes it look like you caught one and imprisoned it in your wall. Which is good because if a real alien shows up one night to abduct you for study, he’ll see this on your wall and hightail it out of there. Plus, he’ll tell his friends and thus you will be safe.

It’s also the sort of thing that comes in handy for scaring away unwanted house guests who like to spend the night. Just put this up in your guest room and no one will want to sleep over. It comes in three pieces: a head and two hands, so you can move them about to create the look that you want.

Klingon Language Keyboard let’s you type with honor

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2009

Klingon Language Keyboard let’s you type with honorYou own the dictionary. You speak the language. Sadly, you’ve even tried to pick up women using the Klingon tongue. Unsuccessfully of course. But until now, you have not been able to type with a Klingon keyboard. Well, Cherry Keyboards’ Klingon Language keyboard has your back. All it needs is a PS/2 port and a willing nerd. You’re good to go.

They were able to keep it looking like regular keyboards thanks to the fact that the Klingon alphabet has 26 characters, the same as the English language. Now you can pretend to be a Klingon ALL the time, not just at the conventions. Just don’t sit in front of it all day long typing Klingon love letters and death threats, or else your fake armor isn’t going to fit over your gut anymore.

The secret behind crop circles exposedAny loyal reader of the ‘Brick knows that we follow certain supernatural phenomena very closely. Whether it’s the Firefox logo spotted in space, or spotted on land. Or a Space Invaders crop circle. We’re looking for answers, because we know the truth is out there. Anyway, looks like this image answers the whole crop circle thing. Or does it? Check out a video here.

Alien tables by Pro Mech

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2008

Alien tables by Pro MechThis is the creepy sequel to our original article on Aliens furniture. When we first told you about this weird taxiderm from Ripley’s dreams, the pieces didn’t look so polished and it would appear that a different person or persons are making these.

It doesn’t make them any less creepy and most wives would kill you for decorating with something that looks so evil at night. Each piece is hand crafted from used car and bike parts, tools and other recycled metal objects, so each one is unique. The coffee table stands 32 inches high and is 27.5 inches in diameter and costs about $500. One can only hope that these creative people set their sights on making Terminators soon as well. That way the aliens will have something to fight.
