Wooden Nintendo Emulator

Wooden Nintendo Emulator

For as long as I can remember, I have always had some sort of portable Nintendo system with me wherever I go.  Of course that started out with the original Game Boy and now I carry around my 3DS XL everywhere I go.  Well, even though this isn’t an official Nintendo handheld, I still want it like I would any real Nintendo handheld gaming device!

This incredible wooden Nintendo emulator that you can carry around in your pocket was created by Love Hultén.  The case is made out of solid walnut and it is powered by a Raspberry Pi A+.  There is no word on battery life but apparently there is a chance that this could be available for purchase at some point and assuming that happens, I already have my credit card ready!

Stained glass isn’t exactly cheap so I have never owned any, but if I was to ever own a stained glass lamp, it would have to be one of these amazing and geeky ones below!  In the past I have posted some pretty cool stained glass creations like this Halo Master Chief helmet lamp and this Half Life Gordon Freeman stained glass but the geeky stained glass lamps below have taken things to an entirely different level.

DeviantArt user DarkeVitrum created these incredible nerdy stained glass lamps.  He has several stained glass lamps on his page but I thought the ones worth mentioning here due to their geeky element are the TARDIS stained glass lamp, the Portal Companion Cube stained glass lamp and the Borderlands Claptrap stained glass lamp.

Of all of them, I think my favorite is the Claptrap lamp although the others are equally awesome.  It is no wonder it took him 5 months to make it because the level of detail is incredible!

First, I want to apologize for the lack of posts recently.  I had to put my cat to sleep and I just haven’t felt up to doing any blogging lately.  Anyway, now that the sad part of the post is out of the way, I have something that might just help you or your kids get really excited about going back to school!  This Avengers: Age of Ultron Captain America shield backpack is sure to bring a smile to any Marvel loving student’s face!

Without a doubt, the most iconic and memorable music from my childhood was the music from Super Mario Bros.  I can’t even begin to speculate how many thousands of hours I have put into that game and continue to put into it on my 3DS while I am waiting at doctors offices or places like that.  Well, for those that also have fond memories of the NES classic, I think I am about to make your day with this Super Mario Bros medley played on an NES piano!

The YouTube channel Player: Piano will be giving away this incredible NES piano with an NES controller bench to one of their lucky subscribers when they hit 1 million subscribers (they are around 100,000 right now).  In the video below, you can watch Sonya Belousova play a beautiful Super Mario Bros. medley on it with all sorts of Super Mario Bros scenery in the background.

If you want a chance to win this, make sure to head over to their YouTube page and subscribe to them!  I don’t even know how to play the piano but this NES piano is so beautiful, I want it in my living room!

From the parents I have talked to, it seems like Minecraft is pretty popular with kids these days.  I haven’t played it myself and I have no kids so I am a little out of touch but if what people tell me is true, I have a feeling there are a lot of kids out there that would love to have this cool Minecraft Creeper backpack for when they head back to school here very soon.

The awesome people over at ThinkGeek are selling this Minecraft Creeper backpack for $39.99!  You can find all of the dimensions and stuff over at that link but judging by the pictures, it looks like it has plenty of room to hold your kids books, pens and pencils, cellphone, trapper keeper (those are still a thing right?) and much more.  The only downside is that there is a limit of 3 per customer so if you have more than three kids that all love Minecraft, you might have to get creative if they all want one of these backpacks.

Jurassic Park is one of my all time favorite movies and I’ve seen it well over a hundred times I’m sure since I always watch it whenever I see it on tv.  However, as much as I love that movie, I can’t say the same thing about Jurassic World.  I finally got around to seeing Jurassic World when I was sick recently and especially compared to the original, I think it is utter crap.  Between horrible writing, bad dialog, less than stellar casting and CGI that doesn’t even come close to looking as good as the original, it was overall a huge disappointment.  Heck, it even made Jurassic Park III look good!  However, what isn’t a disappointment is this incredible Jurassic World velociraptor cake!

This incredible Jurassic World raptor cake was created by Louise of Louise Jackson Cake Design for her son’s 8th birthday.  The cake itself is really cool with the logo and scratches on the side but the real star of this cake is the beautiful velociraptor on top!  The detail she managed to achieve on the raptor which is made out of modeling chocolate is absolutely amazing!  She did a great job with the rocks and plants too but that raptor is just beautiful!  She is one talented cake designer!
