I love posting some geeky musical instruments, but it isn’t very often that I get to post any ukuleles.  I posted a Pac-Man ukulele in the past but I think that is the only one I have ever posted (not that I can remember all of the nearly 1900 posts I have written on just this blog).

Well, Etsy seller celentanowoodworks created and is selling this awesome atom inspired ukulele for $650.  Since I am not a musician, I have no clue what ukuleles usually run but to me it seems like you would have to be a big science geek to pay $650 to get a ukulele that is made to look like an atom.  I still think it is really cool though!

While I would personally probably spring for any of the sets of drink coasters that I have posted before like the amazing Stargate SG-1 coasters or the Star Wars coasters, the Legend of Zelda fans will love this awesome Triforce drink coaster set.

Etsy seller 27elements is selling this awesome set (4) of Legend of Zelda Triforce drink coasters for $20.  These beverage coasters are waterproof and have a soft cork back to make sure you don’t scratch your table with them.  This seems like the perfect thing for any Legend of Zelda fan assuming they don’t have to get their liquids through an IV or something.

I’m always impressed to see pictures of women that go the extra mile and make something amazing with their eye makeup.  In the past, I have posted some mind blowing Nightmare Before Christmas eye makeup and while this R2-D2 eye makeup isn’t as intricate, I think it is every bit as awesome!

Maybe it is because I spent part of my weekend watching some old episodes of the Drew Carey Show, but this makes me think of Mimi since it seems like something she would do.  Although in her case, it would have been an improvement to her usual rainbow of eye shadows.

I have always been one to build all of my one computers (except for laptops of course), but I have never even tried to do the case mod thing since I really don’t have the skills to do it.

Well, apparently this person has the skills to make an amazing case mod or at least stick a computer inside of a Hasbro AT-AT.  For the computer hardware geeks like myself, you will probably want to know this computer is sporting a Zotax Z68 Mini ITX motherboard with an Intel Core i7-2600K CPU, a Sapphire 6870 GPU and 8GB of RAM.  This is definitely one of the cooler Star Wars case mods I have ever seen!

I’ve posted some cool Portal cakes in the past including a cool Portal wedding cake, but I think this might be the coolest one I have seen.

In this case, it appears the cake is falling through a couple of lit up portals (which are pretty cool by themselves).  As cool as this seems, I can’t imagine cutting up a plate just for the amazing cake presentation.  It makes the effect even cooler though!  Between the Portal gun and the amazing Portal cake, I am very jealous of this kid.

Captain Kirk is far from my favorite Star Trek captain (Sisko is), but this Captain Kirk stained glass is pretty cool!

This fantastic work of Star Trek stained glass was created by DeviantART user AidanT.  Apparently AidanT found the pattern for this online so I am guessing if you want to make your own Captain Kirk stained glass a little googling should find you the pattern.  I wish more people would take up the lost art of stained glass making because this stuff is cool!
