Gigantic fire breathing robot descends on Japan

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2009

Gigantic fire breathing robot descends on JapanSilly Japan. You are just inviting the wrath of future robot-things with your antics… Perhaps you like having all of your buildings come down around you. Maybe you don’t mind being flame-broiled by robot breath. All I can say is, you brought it on yourself. Having said that, we do really think this freakish robot baby thing in the streets of Roppongi is pretty frakkin awesome.

“Giant Torayan” is a seven meter tall fire-breathing baby-faced harbinger of death. It’s also the work of artist Kenji Yanobe, who clearly has issues that should never ever be explored by any therapist. Ever. It’s a win/win. We get to see all this cool stuff from Japan, they pay the price later at the hands of a vengeful bot or five-hundred.

7 foot long LEGO Star Wars Mon Calamari cruiser

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2009

7 foot long LEGO Star Wars Mon Calamari cruiserYou can buy anything and everything Star Wars if you are an extreme geek, but this here ship is so awesome, it beats all of them. This seven foot long model of the Calamari Cruiser from Return of The Jedi was built by Thomas Benedikt who used 30,500 Lego pieces. It took about 11 months to get it complete with all that detail. That’s 52 pounds of Lego.

The end cost was $5500. And it does more than just look awesome too. It also has an integrated lighting system for cool effects. Thomas Benedikt is obviously a huge fan as well as super talented.

Super Mario Bros Matryoshka dolls

Posted in Nintendo by Conner Flynn on March 20th, 2009

Super Mario Bros Matryoshka dollsEver wonder what Mario would look like if he had been created by an old world Russian doll maker? Cmsturmhous has posted this handmade set of Matryoshka dolls showing a whole bunch of characters from the games. From Mario and Luigi, the princess, Bowser, to Toad.

They all look like they need to go on a diet, especially Mario who is the largest. No way this version can jump as high as a coin box or smash a Goomba. Pretty cool. Now I want to play a fat Mario game, where the Mushroom kingdom is over-run by twinkies and my job is to get Mario in shape as I try to rescue the fat Princess, who is in Bowser’s dungeon eating a gallon of ice cream and a turkey leg.

Pong-playing LED sheep

Posted in Humor by Conner Flynn on March 18th, 2009

Check this out. A bunch of Sheep herder dudes in the Uk got together and armed with a bunch of LEDs and a camera created some amazing moving art.

“We took to the hills of Wales armed to the teeth with sheep, LEDs and a camera, to create a huge amazing LED display.”

The best part? They create a giant Pong game with the LED wearing sheep. Sure there are a few stray pixels because the dumber ones can’t get it together, but it rocks.

Cool Halo Xbox 360 diorama

Posted in Halo by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2009

Cool Halo Xbox 360 dioramaWe love Halo around these parts, so when we spotted this awesome Halo-themed Xbox 360 diorama with matching case, we had to share. It’s the work of a man named Max who was obviously working through his own Halo obsession through the project.

If you have a close look at all the pics, there’s a ton of detail. So it’s not surprise that it took two months to build in his spare time. Us, we would have just used that spare time to get our game on. Awesome work.

Behold the JesusPhone!

Posted in Humor by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2009

Behold the JesusPhoneWay back in the day, when Andy Warhol claimed to have a direct line to god, no one was buying it. Probably because his crappy phone was just a generic phone. Had he had this phone, people would have been convinced. Looks like constantly referring to the iPhone as the JesusPhone actually turned it into one.

This piece was shown at the PULSE contemporary art fair in NYC this weekend. Details are scarce, like whether or not anyone actually talked to the almighty. According to a tipster, it was exhibited near works by Eckhart Hahn, but they are unsure if it was actually by him.

Playstation controller fossils coming to a future near you

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

Playstation controller fossils coming to a future near youOne day, hopefully when the planet is not ruled by apes that evolved from men, fossils like the one above will be commonplace. And while you might not dig up as many Zune fossils as say, the iPod, they will give those in the future some idea of what we have been up to.

These fossils are hand-made in Austin by artist Christopher Locke. Each one represents a different piece of “modern” technology that has already become extinct. He has also collaborated with the local Goodwill computer and electronics recycling program, insuring that there is zero e-waste from this project.

Oh The Humanity: Hello Kitty Xbox 360

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on February 11th, 2009

Oh The Humanity: Hello Kitty Xbox 360Modding your Xbox 360 with a little paint is nothing new. The results are often unique and every bit as good as fancy high priced art as far as I’m concerned. Whether you choose Sonic the Hedgehog or a cool Domo-kun paint job, it’s all good.

However, I nearly lost my damn lunch when I saw this Hello Kitty Xbox 360. For the love of all that is holy, why? Just why? Only DeviantART user Ricepuppet knows for sure as they decorated this Xbox 360 in shades of pink as the gaming community collectively vomits a little in their mouths.

Food Face plates make playing with your food acceptable

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2009

Food Face plates make playing with your food acceptableAs a kid, how many times were you told to stop playing with your food? Probably a lot. Well, playing with your food on these plates is totally acceptable and even mandatory. The Food Face is a mid-size, hotel-quality, food-safe plate.

It’s time you had the freedom to play with your food. Your parents were just too uptight. Make a hat full of peas, or a beard full of corn, maybe put some carrots as the eyebrows. No price yet, but I imagine they will be available soon.

Painting with a Windows Error

Posted in Windows XP by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2009

Painting with a Windows ErrorIt sucks when your screen won’t refresh. Here’s proof that Windows errors, though frustrating, can be fun too. This is an interesting piece of artwork created entirely from a Windows error in XP.

Hit the link for a video with added 8-bit? sounds. It’s all very Escher-like. Makes you wonder what else you can do with windows errors.

Phone Booth Aquarium is how Aquaman changes costume

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2009

Phone Booth Aquarium is how Aquaman changes costumeWhat a confusing world this has become for the modern day Superman. It used to be he could change into his Superhero outfit in any old phone booth. But in many areas phone booths are to be found less and less. That explains why you never see Superman right? So, along comes this here Phone Booth Aquarium, adding insult to injury, as Aquaman now has a place where he can make a quick change.

Okay, it’s not Aquaman’s. It’s from artists Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino, who decided to do something special for the Lyon Light Festival in France. That’s right, they turned an unused phone booth into an aquarium. It makes for an interesting tourist attraction.

Bio-Cycle is John Connor’s new ride

Posted in Personal Transport by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2009

Bio-Cycle is John Connor’s new rideNo, this isn’t a pic from the annual anorexia bike races, where fashion models bike for charity. It could very well be John Connor’s ride to school after he puts those Terminators in their place and returns to the past as a teen.

It’s the Bio-Cycle by Jud Turner. A human skeleton designed bicycle. The skeleton’s hands hold the front wheel, while it’s legs are attached to the pedals and it’s body s the frame. Sadly there’s no where to sit. I love how it looks robotic. Come to think of it, this is probably what robots will do to us one day when they need bikes.

Robot Ink: 20 awesome robot tattoos

Robot Ink: 20 awesome robot tattoosOver at Botropolis we have a compilation of awesome robot tattoos. If you’re gonna get some ink, consider getting something in the likeness of our future lords and masters. You never know, those who carry the mark of the bot may be spared on that future day of reckoning when the rest of us are all just charred corpses.

Xbox 360 with a cool Domo-kun paint job

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2008

Xbox 360 with a cool Domo-kun paint jobWhile this isn’t the most mind blowing console mod we’ve ever seen, this paint job gives your Xbox 360 a bit of Japanese flair. It was painted by deviantART member Ricepuppet and it looks like a pretty faithful Domo-kun themed console.

The console is pretty cool all by itself, but it even has it’s own matching controller, which we assume is functional. Hopefully the user won’t mess up the paint job while playing a shooter. It looks hungry and I bet it’s eyes seem to watch you while you are playing.
