Archives For Cool pictures

Even when I was a kid, I don’t recall ever doing any bead crafts although I remember seeing them occasionally at craft shows I was dragged to (I wasn’t a craft lover back then and unless it is a geeky craft, I’m still not a big craft type of person).  However, I have never seen anything as large as this giant Super Mario Bros 3 start screen made out of beads before.

In the past, I have posted some really cool gaming bead art including a Sonic the Hedgehog 2 start screen logo as well as a very detailed work of Link bead art.  However, I don’t think they can match the scale of the project below!

Sprite Stitch forum member ShampooTeacher is the guy in the picture below that created this enormous Super Mario Bros 3 start screen out of beads.  I’m not sure how many beads were used or how much time this took to create but I suspect it was a lot of both.  I think it was worth it too because it turned out looking spectacular!

I wish this was for sale because I think this would be the perfect thing to hang over my bed as since Super Mario Bros 3 has always been my favorite Mario game.

It should be pretty obvious by now that I am somewhat obsessed with geeky cakes.  I think by now I have posted a cake from pretty much every franchise beloved by geeks from Super Mario Bros to Star Trek yet I still get excited whenever I see a new one.  In the past, I have posted a ton of great Doctor Who wedding cakes that generally featured the TARDIS, Daleks or other Whovian favorites like Weeping Angels.  Well, this Doctor Who wedding cake is a bit different in that I don’t think there is a single element of it that has ever showed up in a cake I previously posted.

The fantastic Doctor Who wedding cake in the picture below features the infamous crack, the 4th Doctors scarf, a bunch of Gallifreyan writing and even the Master’s pocket watch!

Sadly, the Facebook fan page that I found this on as well as many other Doctor Who related things I post seems to refuse to give credit to the original creators of anything they post so I have no idea who created this cake.  If you know who created it and who the happy couple was that had this cake for their wedding, let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit!

One of the many reasons I prefer gaming on PC over console is that thanks to platforms like Steam, I find myself rarely reaching to swap disks these days when there is a different game I want to play.  I still have to do it for a lot of older games but I find myself rarely playing those anymore just because changing disks is not very convenient, especially when I keep my old disks on the other side of the room.  Well, one Xbox 360 loving console gamer has fixed this problem for themselves with a LEGO NXT creation.

YouTube user zwenkka apparently also dislikes the the whole process of changing disks on his Xbox 360 so they decided to make a multi-disk changer appropriately named “The Carousel” with LEGO NXT (I guess that is a newer version of LEGO Mindstorm?).  The Carousel can hold 32 disks for the Xbox 360 and is controlled with an Android app that can be downloaded from the Google Play store.

It may take an average of 42 seconds to switch disks but that is still better than having to get out of your chair to go change the disks yourself.  This is one Xbox 360 accessory I would pay a lot for if I had the room for one.  Check out the video below for more details and to see it in action!

It has been a lot of years since I have built anything with LEGO bricks and while I seem to have left them in my childhood (mostly because they are really expensive these days), I still love seeing the insane things that people build out of LEGO bricks.  An example of the crazy things that people build with it these days are the awesome Green Lantern and Superman LEGO sculptures I posted about a couple of years ago.  Well, I think I have found a build that is more impressive than those and perhaps the most impressive LEGO build ever.

This insane Lord of the Rings Helms Deep LEGO sculpture was build by Rich-K and Big J.  They used an insane 150,000 bricks and 17,000 minifigs to create this masterpiece.

Whether you are a Lord of the Rings fan or just a LEGO lover, you can’t deny just how amazing this Lord of the Rings LEGO sculpture is.  I can’t even imagine what these guys spent just to build this much less how much time was required to build something of this scale.  I could not be more impressed!

In the past, I have posted some really cool Doctor Who cakes including a Dalek cake that might be mistaken for a real Dalek and even Matt Smith’s 30th birthday TARDIS cake.  However, as cool as those both are as well as the many other Doctor Who cakes I have posted, I think this Cyberman cake reigns supreme.

This Cyberman cake looks like it could be a kid that was converted into a real Cyberman!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who this lady is to give her credit for this amazing Cyberman cake creation so if any of you know who she is, please let us know in the comments below because she definitely deserves credit for making such a fantastic cake!

I would definitely say this Cyberman cake blows the previous Cyberman cake that I posted right out of the time vortex.

I wish somebody would make me a cake like this!  I don’t have a wish to be deleted, I just love Doctor Who!

If you have ever had a Doctor Who cake made for you (or a geeky cake of any kind for that matter), let us know in the comments and share some pictures with us.

Like many geeks, I have occasionally dreamed of sleeping on a space ship while traveling from one part of the galaxy to another but sadly I don’t think that dream is ever going to come true (unless I get chosen for that Mars One mission).  However, there are some people that go beyond just dreaming about that idea and they actually create a space ship bed to try to satisfy that dream.

In the past, I have posted a couple of really cool and geeky beds including a Star Wars Millennium Falcon bed as well as a Star Wars Landspeeder Bed.  Well, it looks like a Whovian decided to pursue this dream as well and built a fold down bed hiding inside of the TARDIS!

A man in New Zealand (sadly I don’t know his name to give him credit so if you do know him, please let us know in the comments below so we can give him the credit he deserves) decided to make this TARDIS that has a fold down bed inside for his son!  Perhaps the most clever part is that on the bottom of the bed is a picture of the inside of the TARDIS so when the bed isn’t down but the TARDIS doors are still open, you can see the inside of the TARDIS!

The level of detail on this TARDIS bed is quite impressive.  The snow on the TARDIS is a very nice touch!  Congrats to the kid who got this bed from his dad.

I wish this was my bed!  Having a fold up bed would be rather nice just because space in my bedroom is at a premium (small bedroom).
