The Executive Desk will have your gears turning
Self-taught artist, Dale Mathis is a guy who, as far as I can tell from this piece, wants to rule over time…While mere mortals like you watch. The Executive Desk is a fully functional visual and kinetic desk, even has keyboard and mouse trays.

Each of his sculpture are uniquely crafted and come with a hefty price tag of $21,000 each. The question is, can you actually sit at this desk and not become completely depressed as you watch your life grind away? Minute…by minute…by stinking hour…Oh what’s the point…Video of the desk in action is below.

When AT-ATs walk through bad neighborhoods

When AT-ATs walk through bad neighborhoods
When you’re part of the evil Empire, you have to conquer worlds. Street by street if you have to. There’s at least one street somewhere, where they made a mockery of the Empire almost as badly as the Ewoks did. Maybe even worse. That AT-AT must have had a long shameful walk home.

This Hasbro Star Wars vehicle was customized by Graffiti artists EASE and JK5 under the direction of SUCKADELIC. It’s done in the Aurebesh language, a fictional letter system created for the 6 Star Wars films. It’s being auctioned off at Christies, so you probably can’t afford it.

Alien tables: Not recommended for night time use

Alien Tables: Not recommended for night time use
These Alien tables are pretty awesome sculptural pieces. If Ripley went into the furniture business, this would naturally be the result. Who wouldn’t love to own one. Thing is, there’s no way this thing is in my house at night. Who wants to walk by this thing in the dark?

Interestingly, they’re hand crafted from recycled used car and bike parts, tools and other recycled metal, which makes every piece unique. They’ll cost you from about $300 to $4,450. They’re more than conversation pieces, they insure that your guests leave promptly after their business is concluded.

Big block Chevy USB flash drive
Check out this awesome USB drive. It’s from jasonscreations over at etsy. He makes all kinds of cool stuff, including USB drives from old toys. He’s got several different cars and trucks available, all very cool.

Holy Hieroglyphics: Stunning Egyptian case mod
Whether built by King Tut himself or the work of an ancient alien civilization, this is surely proof of alien intervention. The detail is just too amazing. There’s no way they could have done it. And the fact that an ancient PC case has been unearthed…

This work of art was built from nothing by Chris Kramer a.k.a “Jadragon”, and is called the EgyptMod PC. There’s some amazing detail, like hieroglyphics, fake jewels and an awesome aged look. Check out the Eye of Ra made of brass and inlaid with polished malachite and verisite. The project took over 200 hours of carving and he never once wavered and cried out for his mummy. It’s a truly inspiring creation.

One Hour watch is confusing to onlookers

One Hour watch is confusing to onlookers
Jackson Pollock called, he wants his watch back. Lately, it’s become more fashionable to wear a watch that would puzzle anyone looking over your shoulder trying to get the time, then an everyday watch. Designer Denis Guidone came up with the idea that is simply named “Ora Unica,” or One Hour.

So how does one make any sense out of the scribbled line that occupies the face of this watch? Apparently, it has two circular faces, with the minute hand on one and the hour hand on the other. As time marches on, the scribble changes. I know, that explanation doesn’t really help. It’s crazy. I’m guessing it’s 11:40 or so in the pic. If I owned it, I know what I’d be saying. Time to get a new watch.

TokyoFlash Infection Watch looks sick

TokyoFlash Infection Watch looks sick
…In a good way. Mostly. TokyoFlash continues to surprise us with unique watch designs. With their latest, the “Infection” watch, they apparently had sickness on their minds. I’m not sure if I like it or not. On one hand the design is cool, but I look at it and I feel like I need to be quarantined. It’s like ill pop-art.

The time is shown with 12 red, 11 yellow and four green LEDs, and you can choose have the display animated or just show the time. The curved watch is stainless-steel and water-resistant to 3ATM and sells for around $135.

Baked bread now looks like Doctor Who villian

Baked bread now looks like Doctor Who villian
Kittiwat Unarrom has a master’s degree in fine arts and enjoys making body parts out of bread at a bakery in Thailand. Very realistic and disturbing body parts. They’re made out of dough, raisins, cashews and chocolate. He even paints the outside with edible paint to give it an even more gruesome appearance.

What do I think about it? I’m still trying to figure out why these bread heads look like Sontarans.(A popular Doctor Who villian as any geek knows) They’re horrible. And it doesn’t help that those aluminum plates look like collars. If these things come to life and take over the world, I just wanted you to see who your new masters were.

SKDubs Gold boombox looks beautiful & badass

SKDubs Gold boombox looks beautiful & badass
This boombox is an awesome mix of music and sculpture built into the body of a double bass by artist David Ellis. He incorporated a four-way stereo speaker system, two vaccum tube preamps, a Crown power amp, and a Behringer equalizer.

In case you’re wondering, there is no iPod dock, but it does come with one of the Apple players to provide a music source. You’ll have a hard time getting your hands on one, it’s limited to a run of only three systems. Which is just as well, since many of us don’t have a spare $15,000.

The Vertu Constellation Rococo collection

The Vertu Constellation Rococo collection
Vertu is a British-based company that produces luxury mobile phones and they’re celebrating their 10th anniversary with a special event. The company is launching another luxury series, called the Constellation Rococo Collection. The stylish devices are inspired by eighteenth century French art, fashion and the interior design movement by the same name.

The series will go on sale this summer and will be available in noir, scarlet, ivory and an exclusive sapphire edition. The sapphire edition has a cabochon sapphire for a center button, cabochon sapphire screws, and of course Rococo patterns engraved onto the bezel. No pricing available yet, but my guess is it will not be cheap.

The robot art of Andre Kutscherauer

The robot art of Andre Kutscherauer
I love robot art when it’s done right. That is to say when it is visually interesting and not just the same old thing. These awesome CGI images by Andre Kutscherauer are certainly awesome. Some of the works have titles like Brute Force, Selfillumination and Dandelion of Screws, and once you have a look, you can’t help but be very impressed.

Unlike most things these days, the work actually makes you think. More then that, it makes you think outside of the box. If you don’t believe me, go have a look at the artist’s site. This stuff is awesome. Where else can you see robots plugging themselves in?

Viper made with recycled keyboards

Viper made with recycled keyboards
Not sure what to do with your old keyboards? Why not make an awesome, but completely harmless viper out of them. Harmless to everything but computer mice at any rate. Awesome. Totally awesome I say. The only thing better would be to use black keys and create an even larger King Cobra. Man, I would like to see one of those kids get bit. Is that wrong?

Guitar Hero custom wood guitars

Guitar Hero custom wood guitars
Everyone loves Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but let’s face it, the out of the box instruments they give you won’t make you feel like a Rock God. Here’s your chance to get a beautifully handpainted guitar worthy of a real rocker. These limited edition art guitars are individually painted with familiar logos and imagery from several popular rock bands.

Make no mistake, these aren’t just cheap paint jobs, the images are embedded under a protective coating, so you won’t scratch them off while playing Barracuda for the 1000th time. Which is probably why it will cost you $399. ArtGuitar takes a real wood Peavey AG RiffMaster controller, then adds the rock art from various artists like KISS, Lynyrd Skynrd, Ozzy Osbourne and Pantera. At the moment, the controllers are only available for the PS2, but hopefully they’ll get around to Xbox 360 and PS3 versions soon.

Clarinet gun mod for musicians gone postal

Clarinet gun mod for musicians gone postal
Check out this steampunk clarinet mod, which foregoes music and adopts violence as it’s new tune. There isn’t alot of info about it, but I like to imagine that some band geek got picked on a bit too much and went all Travis Bickle while creating it. You talking to me? You must be talking to me…

Looks like it doesn’t actually fire, but is more of an art piece. I also envision a post-apocalyptic future where a trio of musicians wander the wasteland. When trouble comes, they make as if to play some music. But when they open their instrument cases…All hell breaks loose. We love the clarinet gun.

Tattoos for your toilet seat

Tattoos for your toilet seat
For some reason, humans like to put their own unique stamp on everything so they can stand out. Just look at all the tech add-ons that personalize their gadgets. And after centuries of tattooing their bodies, it’s time to tattoo the ole crapper.

Toilet tattoos are printed on a plastic film that sticks electrostatically to your plastic seat lid. They can be easily removed and changed or cleaned. They offer a variety of patterns and images, including holiday themes, so you can change the look of your can to match the season. Personally, I would want the frogs one, but I would want the image to change automatically. They would start off as happy frogs, but after somebody does their business and adds a few logs to the pond, the frogs would keel over and fall off their branch. Then when the smell dissipates, they would be happy again. See, it’s not only pretty, but kinda like a refuse radiation detector as well.
