I have quite a few old Game Boys laying around but as far as I know, they are all still in working condition.  However, apparently one Game Boy fan had one laying around that I am guessing wasn’t functional anymore so they decided to turn it into a really cool clock!

I’m not entirely sure of who did this awesome little Game Boy clock mod that features a Super Mario game (Super Mario Land I think?) with Mario on the hour hand but it appears to have come from twitter user @moja_sen.  Not speaking the language the tweet was written in, I’m not exactly sure what it says to have an idea if they were the creator or not.  Whoever made it, it is definitely a cool way to give a little more life to an old Game Boy!

Game Boy Ice Cream Sandwiches

Game Boy Ice Cream Sandwiches

One of my favorite frozen treats as a kid and something I still have pretty much daily at work is the popular ice cream sandwich.  While I have always preferred to get mine from Schwans, for those that might be interested in making their own with a bit of a geeky twist, I have found the perfect video for you!

In this episode of Nerdy Nummies, Rosanna Pansino shows you how to create some cute ice cream sandwiches that look like the classic Game Boy handheld.  She does a fantastic job of explaining how to do everything so hopefully you can’t screw up these ice cream sandwiches too bad so that you can enjoy some delicious Game Boy treats this summer!  There are also a ton of helpful links in the YouTube description as well including the square and d-pad templates as well as the list of ingredients she uses and links to where you can find them on Amazon.

If you have kids, this seems like a great thing to make with them and something they will really enjoy when you are done.  If you decide to try making these, let us know how they turned out in the comments below!

There are many days that I miss having a coffee table in my living room but I simply don’t have the room for one anymore.  My old one is sitting in my basement until somebody decides they want it and takes it off of my hands.  However, if I had the room for one, I would love to build a Legend of Zelda coffee table like this one!

This incredible Legend of Zelda pixel art coffee table was created by Instructables user .  If you want to see more pictures including a bunch of the construction as well as find instructions on how you can build your own Legend of Zelda pixel art coffee table, check out their guide over on Instructables.  I can’t speak for anybody else but I know I would love to have this 8-bit looking Hylian Crest coffee table in my living room!

Rarely does a day go by that I don’t wish my bedroom had more than one outlet because there are a ton of other things I would like to have in my room like a mini fridge or a few more computers but I just don’t have the free outlets.  However, if you are lucky enough to have some free power outlets and happen to be a big Legend of Zelda fan, I think this Zelda LED desk light might be just perfect for you!

Etsy seller HeroLights is selling this awesome Legend of Zelda desk light for just $29.99!  The lights are a lovely shade of green and it features the Hylian Crest.  If you are a Zelda fan and happen to be looking for a cool little light for your desk or perhaps a Zelda night light, this is perfect for you!

I wish I had the knowledge and skills to make something like this because this is really cool and I have all sorts of ideas for something like this.  If anybody knows where I can find out how to make something like this, let me know in the comments below!

Its not very often that I eat donuts, perhaps once a month or so but when I do, there are days that I spring for donuts that are more than just your plain glazed donut.  We have a donut place around here that makes all sorts of kooky combinations of donuts like green chili donuts or vanilla cheesecake donuts and even donuts with almost every type of cereal on top.  Well, as much as I love a good vanilla cheesecake donut, I don’t think it can top this incredible looking Super Mario Bros inspired donuts!

These Super Mario Bros donuts were created by Timmy Hanno.  He did a great job creating a Boo donut, a Bullet Bill donut, a Shy Guy donut, a Goomba donut, a warp pipe donut and a chain chomp donut.  Just talking about all of these donuts is making me hungry!

One of the biggest limitations that the Nintendo 64 had was its lack of a dedicated sound card.  Instead of having a sound card in the system that could have produced high quality audio, the design decision was made to just have have the graphics processing share its resources with the audio processing.  As a result, games that pushed the graphics capabilities of the N64 ended up with audio so compressed that often times it just didn’t sound that good.

Just how bad did games end up sounding?  Well, the uncompressed audio from GoldenEye has found its way online and at least to my ears, the difference is night and day at least from what I remember.  This is Grant Kirkhope’s soundtrack for the game the way it was meant to be heard!

Let me know what you think of the difference in the comments below!
