Archives For Cool pictures

With Valentine’s Day this last weekend, I had a feeling that I might see some really geeky and awesome engagement ring boxes and it looks like I was right!  In the past, I have featured a couple of really cool Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring boxes like this one that plays music and another one that has some great art work on it.  However, as cool as those are, I think this one with a floating rupee is my favorite!

This handmade Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring box with a floating rupee was created by Etsy seller IndyFurniture.  They are selling this Zelda engagement ring box for $60.  Not only does it have the cool floating rupee effect, but it has some lights on the bottom to make sure you have the perfect lighting for that special moment when you ask that special someone to marry you.  However, if you want the full effect, you will have to sing the treasure chest opening sound when you go to open it.

Knowing how to weld is a good skill to have although I am the only man in my family who doesn’t know how to do it.  So, when I need something welded I have to turn to one of my family members although that is quite rare.  However, I have been known to borrow a pair of welding goggles on occasion to do some viewing of the sun for things like eclipses and transits (I have the dark enough glass for safe viewing which I am the only one that uses it).  Unfortunately, those goggles just aren’t as geeky as this Boba Fett welding mask!

Reddit user radroman posted pictures of their friend’s welding mask that has been modified to look like Boba Fett’s helmet.  This is cool enough to make just about any geek want to take up welding!

May the Force be with whoever wears this Boba Fett welding mask!

Sweet Pac-Man Cupcakes

This morning I was going through and cleaning out old pictures on my phone to free up some space (16GB is just not enough internal storage Samsung!) when I came across the picture of these neat Pac-Man cupcakes I took last fall at the Colorado State Fair that I forgot to post.  In case the Pac-Man cupcakes below aren’t enough to satisfy your appetite, I’d also suggest checking out the other Pac-Man cupcakes I posted a couple of years ago as well as the fantastic Pac-Man birthday cake I posted last year.

These adorable Pac-Man cupcakes were made by Hallee Conde from Yuma, Colorado for the 4-H cake decorating competition at the 2014 Colorado State Fair.  They took 5th place!  Good job Hallee!

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.
