Death Star Latte Art

Jeremy Bray —  March 27, 2015 — Leave a comment

It has been a while since I have posted some nerdy latte art (search for latte art on the right to see all of the amazing latte art I have posted about in the past), so when I saw this Death Star latte art on the front page of the Star Wars subreddit, I thought I should post it on here.

This awesome Star Wars latte art features a great looking Death Star and Tie Bomber.  Sadly, I’m not sure who the barista is who made this to give them credit (let us know in the comments below if you know who they are), but they did a fantastic job!  The froth is strong with this one!

On a side note, I have always wondered if baristas charge extra to do stuff like this or are you just expected to tip more?  I’m not a coffee person so I’m unfamiliar with the situation.  Feel free to enlighten me in the comments below because I am truly curious!

Tired of using the same old silverware/plasticware to eat your dinner?  Well, now you can kick dinner time into another dimension thanks to these fantastic timey wimey eating utensils!

The nerdy people over at ThinkGeek are selling this Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver cutlery set for just $23.99 right now!  That is 20% off the normal $29.99 price!  I’m not sure how long the sale price will last, so I would jump on this deal before it goes away!  That said, even at $30, I think this set is still worth it if you are a Doctor Who fan like I am!  FYI, these are made of plastic and stainless steel and they are dishwasher safe!

Sonic Screwdriver eating utensils might be overkill for a nice dinner of fish fingers and custard but you can’t live on those so I’m sure you will find other dishes to use these with.

Much to the dislike of my bathroom scale, I have been eating perhaps more than my fair share of cookies lately.  I just can’t seem to help myself so I just grab a handful of them whenever I see somebody have them sitting out.  However, its probably a good thing that nobody has had cookies as awesome as these Star Trek and Doctor Who cookies otherwise I would probably take all of them.

These incredible looking Doctor Who and Star Trek cookies were created by Mallory Mae from Butterwinks.  If you are interested in finding out how she made this cookies and how you can make your own, she has an online course called Piping Cookies That Pop on Craftsy.

These cookies are so well done, I honestly don’t think I can pick a favorite!  The Kirk, Spock and Uhura cookies have an adorable cartoony look to them while the Doctor Who cookies are just plain awesome, especially the Dalek and TARDIS.  Which cookie is your favorite?

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!

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!

Domino TARDIS

Domino TARDIS

Maybe its because of the digital world we live in these days but it seems like dominoes aren’t near as cool as they were when I was a kid.  I still love them but I don’t even know the last time I heard of kids playing with them like I did when I was a kid.  Well, at least there are still some people out there that enjoy playing with those wonderful pieces of plastic because without them, there wouldn’t be videos like the one below.

Youtuber StickTrickDominoDude is the creator of this amazing Doctor Who themed domino build which has everything from a Dalek to a TARDIS.  This complex build (obviously done in multiple takes) turned out great!  The video below is amazing!
