Archives For Cool pictures

I can’t say I have ever had any desire to have kids but if that was to ever happen, I would absolutely want to get this Star Wars X-Wing rocker for them.  At this point, I would call rocking horses a cliché while an X-Wing rocker is just plain awesome!

This amazing Star Wars X-Wing baby rocker was created by Steves Wooden Toys.  It was created from solid wood, specifically pine, native macrocarpa and rimu.  I can’t say I have ever heard of the latter two woods but I am guessing its because they have them in New Zealand and not here in the US.  Anyway, perhaps the coolest part is that R2-D2 is removable!  I wonder if they would build something like this for adults because I kind of want one for myself.

The Force will be strong with the baby that rocks in this X-Wing rocker!

Boba Fett Themed Car

Jeremy Bray —  January 7, 2015 — Leave a comment

Largely due to the expense of fancy paint jobs and such, I have never really had any desire to make my car look especially geeky.  I have thought about putting some sort of digital sign on it that I could use to communicate to other drivers to let them know when they have a break light out, a low tire or to tell them how badly they drive and that they should go drive off a cliff.  However, even the funds for a cool project like that are lacking at the moment.  Luckily, there are people out there who have money to dump into the looks of their car because if there wasn’t, the world would not have the amazing Boba Fett car below!

Artist Rebekah Stieg Knuth of Knuthart Studios designed the amazing Boba Fett wrap for her Hyundai Veloster and then had it installed by some professionals.  I’d say it turned out pretty great!  Below are some pictures and a timelapse of the installation process.

Have you done any geeky customizations to your vehicle?  Let us know in the comments below!

Whenever I am driving around in my car, I always have my phone plugged into my FM transmitter which also gives power to my phone so I can both charge my phone and listen to music off of my phone.  However, if you aren’t as old school as me and have a stereo system new enough that you don’t have to use an FM transmitter to listen to music off of your phone yet still want a geeky way to charge your phone or other USB powered devices, this R2-D2 USB car charger might just be for you!

The cool geeks over at ThinkGeek are selling this sweet R2-D2 USB car charger for just $39.99!  It should fit in your cup holders and has 2 USB ports which both put out 2.1 amps which is enough to charge two tablets at the same time and it plugs into your cigarette lighter.

Even if you aren’t willing to sacrifice one of your own cup holders for this, it would still make a great Christmas gift for that Star Wars fan in your life.

I really hate the idea of having to get rid of my Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess wallet because I really like it, but it is falling apart and the ink for the Twilight Princess logo is almost totally faded away.  So, I am in search of a new wallet and while looking around for a new wallet, I came across this cool Klingon wallet!

The awesome nerds over at SuperHeroStuff.com are selling this sweet Star Trek Klingon chain wallet for just $19.99!  The wallet is a tri-fold wallet which snaps shut and is made of a combination of polyurethane and polyester.

Whether you are looking for a wallet yourself or know somebody who likes Klingons and could use a wallet for Christmas, you might want to think about picking this one up!

I’m not sure if this is going to be the wallet I get but it is definitely on the short list since I love the Klingons and only have an interest in tri-fold wallets.  I probably won’t be buying a new one until after new years so if you know of a geeky wallet I should check out (I would think you guys know what sort of geeky tastes I have by now), please feel free to let me know in the comments below!

About three years ago, I posted about some really cool TARDIS and Dalek Christmas tree ornaments that the BBC was selling.  However, at the time they were going for the rather insane price of $42.61.  Well, they are a lot more affordable now to the point that I would say they are must have ornaments for any Whovian’s Christmas tree!

The amazing people over at ThinkGeek are selling these Doctor Who Christmas ornaments for just $8.99 each!  You can choose from a TARDIS, a red or yellow Dalek or a Cyberman!  And that’s not all!  If you order before midnight tonight (today is 12/17/14) and use the coupon code ‘SHIPUS’, you get free shipping with no minimum!  I told you they were affordable now!

There is no better way to celebrate the Doctor Who Christmas Special than with these ornaments so order them now if you want to get them in time!

Ever since I started my geeky fashion blog, Fanboy Fashion, I haven’t posted much fingernail art here since it usually makes the most sense for me to post it over there rather than here on Global Geek News (you can still find a ton of it if you search for nail art over on the right).  Well, since I already have a post planned for over there today (some amazing Diablo Demon Hunter cosplay), I figured I might as well post this incredible steampunk fingernail art here because it is simply too amazing not to post somewhere!  Long nails aren’t really my thing but even I have to admit these are pretty spectacular.

This incredibly detailed steampunk nail art was created by Simone Gilbert.  Between the gears, goggles and pretty much everything else, this might just be the most detailed nail art I have ever seen!  I can definitely say this is also the only time I have seen a corset on nail art before.
