Recently I stumbled across these fun floss dispensers for kids, and they reminded me of something I once thought of: a floss dispenser based on Spider-Man. The webhead would now combat the evils of gingivitis with his floss webbing! I’m sure kids would dig this, and I have a feeling that a few adults would like one too.
A Dr. Octopus toothbrush holder would compliment Spidey perfectly, now that I think of it.
Well the image pretty much speaks for itself, I reckon. I suppose you could fix it up to actually run on steam, but that’s way too over-the-top. There is one slight dig at Valve Software, so I hope they don’t suspend my Steam account (I need my Peggle fix to function).
Recently I had the privilege of collaborating with Tom Spina Designs, makers of the famous Han Solo in Carbonite desk. The gig was for another desk, this time a commission for a client who wanted something special for their office: a desk based on the bridge from the most recent Star Trek films.
Thought this would be a fun way to organize and display your Blu-Rays: a shelf that looks like the Netflix Instant homepage. Now you can organize your films by genres, while displaying your favorite films front and center. Read the rest of this entry
As you know I’m a big Calgary Flames fan (I grew up in Calgary), so for fun I thought I’d put together this arena concept for the team, now that they’re in the process of replacing their 31-year-old Saddledome.
It’s essentially a giant stetson hat! I know that might some cheeseball to some, but I always liked that Calgary’s arena that had a western motif, which the Saddledome accomplished to a degree. An arena based on a cowboy hat would continue the tradition established by the Saddledome. Read the rest of this entry
3 o’clock? More like Luigi o’clock, amiright? Because the hands on the clock look like an ‘L’…okay that joke was funnier in my head.
Anyways, anytime I see one of those fancy torsion pendulum clocks, specifically the orb weights revolving, I am reminded of the Koopa shells spinning around a racer in Mario Kart.
With the shell weights being suspended by a clear plastic (or glass) pillars, it would almost look like they are being self-propelled (I used a clear blue material so you can see them here).
I went with a tire and rim for the main clock, but other Mario Kart imagery could be used instead. One note: the shells wouldn’t spin around in one direction continuously, they’d reverse direction every 15 – 20 seconds – I couldn’t express that in the GIF.
Here’s hoping such a clock could be made. It would be the sort of family heirloom geeks would covet.
This wallpaper features Little Mac and Doc Louis training in Hoboken, New Jersey, getting ready for the big fight against that no-good Soda Popinsky.
It’s a combination of 3D (foreground), photo-editing* (background), and of course pixel art. You can find 16:9 and 4:3 sizes after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
