Saw a bright red washer and dryer set recently, and this idea was born. I’m in a good mood and it’s Friday so I’ll share it: In a cruel twist of fate, Optimus Prime has been recruited to clean clothes, ’til all laundry is done! Read the rest of this entry
After I posted that THOR Hammer Tool Box a few months ago my first thought was, Iron Man is the handy one, he should get a cool tool set too. Tony Stark’s love of cars inspired me to create something specifically for garage-dwelling gearheads: a DUM-E robot comprised of things found in your typical garage.

The latest city to get a SMB3-themed transit map is Ottawa, where they are currently building the new Confederation Line that is due to open in 2018. I’m surprised by how small the O-Train system is, given the age and size of the city.
Looks like Edmonton is the last Canadian city I need to do. Remember that scene where Pee-wee Herman rescued a bunch of snakes from the burning pet shop? That’s what it’s like for me to do do anything related to Edmonton, that no-good city of chumps.

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a geeky map, mostly because I’ve been wanting to do something new. So I present this Star Fox-themed map of the solar system, based on the mission branching screen from the SNES game.
To keep it in the style of the game, most of the planets are the same size (sorry). I also had to spread out the planets in order for their orbits to be (mostly) unobstructed. So please forgive all the liberties I’ve taken!
I’ve seen quite a few geeky mini fridges lately, from Han Solo in Carbonite to Iron Man. While it’s great that there are so many options for geeks to choose from, none of them have grabbed me personally. So if it were up to me, I’d make a design based on the TMNT Party Wagon.
The box shape is optimal for storage, and that iconic door (used for ramming Foot ninjas) swings open like a fridge door, so it’s a perfect fit.
The one shown here is big enough for a 12-pack of soda and a sandwich. However if the wheels were entirely on the outside of cabin there’d be even more room for food. You could even upscale this van for a much larger fridge, with storage in the door too. This could also be down-scaled to fit 4-6 sodas so it doesn’t take up too much room on your desk.
3 o’clock? More like Luigi o’clock, amiright? I say this because the hands on the clock look like an ‘L’…okay that joke was funnier in my head.
Anyways, whenever I see one of those fancy torsion pendulum clocks, specifically ones with the the orb-shaped weights, 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
