The Updated Geek Signs Of The Zodiac

If you've always felt like there was an Undead Slayer, Pirate, or Spy lurking inside you, it's probably because of your Geek Zodiac sign.

In this annual zodiac the animals are replaced by beloved icons of geekdom, with the years under each sign determined by the year when the first example of the icon (approximately) appeared in popular culture.

I'm an Undead/Slayer, so i'm totally gonna PWN the upcoming zombie apocalypse!

(design by Joshua G. Eckert, concept by James F. Wright)

Retro Styled Rayguns Made From Found Objects

This awesome array of retro rayguns are made from found objects by Kevin Skinner, aka Budget Raygun.

The only thing that could make these retro-futuristic styled rayguns any cooler is if they actually fired energy beams and made pew!pew! noises. 

The future was so much cooler in the past!

Geeky Nesting Dolls By BoBo Babushka

Nesting dolls, known as Matryoshka dolls in their native Russia, don't have to feature stoic faced babushkas in sarafans.

Take these geeky nesting dolls for example, which were made by Etsy seller Irene Hwang aka BoBo Babushka.

They feature characters from such popular geek fare as The Avengers, Black Adder and the Big Bang Theory.

What a fun way to show some geek love and spruce up your abode at the same time!

Rubber Band Gatling Gun

(YouTube Link)

The guy in this video has created the ultimate non-lethal squirrel deterrant- a rubber band gatling gun that fires 200 rounds with the crank of a wooden handle.

Reloading looks like a huge pain in the neck, but I doubt any invading critters are going to stick around after seeing this thing let loose!

Surreal Sculptures By Alex Chinneck

Brick chimneys are not typically thought of as flexible structures, and slicing through them isn't anything like slicing through a piece of paper.

Well, sculptor Alex Chinneck must have missed the memo on what you can and can't do with bricks, and his whimsical sculptures blur the boundary between art and home renovation. It's like shopping at a home improvement store designed by a madman!

Kingdom Hearts Keyblades Never Used In The Series

These Keyblade designs for the Final Fantasy/Disney crossover video game series Kingdom Hearts were never used in the games for a good reason-they're just plain sick!

They definitely would have added a touch of morbid humor to the game, but I don't think Disney would have appreciated them very much...

The Olympic Ticket Scalper

(Funny Or Die Link)

Sir Patrick Stewart takes some time off from his busy acting career to get in on the Olympic ticket scalping game, and he's so good at hustling it's scary.

Say goodbye to the 2012 London Olympic Games with this wee bit o' funny co-starring Simon Pegg!

American Geeks Photographed In The Wild

Photographer Jake Warga has traveled the globe as a professional photojournalist, but none of his subjects have been as wild and wooly as the classic American geek.

The geeks in this series have been captured in their native habitat, aka various niche conventions across the U.S., to ensure that they are captured where they feel most comfortable.

Removing the background and leaving each geek floating in white space makes these images a bit surreal, but it serves to eliminate any distraction from the true stars of the show- American grown geeks.

Wilders Sculptures By Wilfrid Wood

These whimsical sculptures by Wilfrid Wood are based on characters involved in a not so whimsical event- the 2011 London riots.

Wilfrid has captured the chaotic nature of these miscreants in clay, but rather than empowering this rogues gallery he shows the world what they truly are inside- a bunch of dim witted thugs who were having a good time at London's expense.

Rejected Pitches For E.T.

(YouTube Link)

This goofy little comedy video is part of a web series called Rejected Pitches, and this episode focuses on Spielberg and some studio execs sitting around talking about E.T.

After watching this video I'll never think of that wrinkly little brown alien with the glowing finger the same way ever again!

Brandalism Campaign Hits Billboards Across The UK

Brandalism was the name given to a street art campaign that covertly replaced billboards across the UK with works by artists such as Ron English, Leo Murray and Eyesaw.

The replacement pieces scathingly satirize the ideas and propaganda behind billboard ads, ranging from poignant and political to downright comical messages, like the Ron English ad for mythical meats pictured above.

25 artists from 8 countries gathered to take place in Brandalism, and you can see the rest of their subversive works at the link below.

Awesome CG Animated Short - A Fox Tale

(Vimeo Link)

This beautiful animated short is called A Fox Tale, and it was created by four students from the French animation school Supinfocom Arles.

The story is loosely based on Asian mythology, and features vibrant colors, gorgeous visual effects and charming character designs.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this short become a feature length film some day, and needless to say the students who created A Fox Tale are definitely going places!

CG Animated Short Shows Life After Aperture

(YouTube Link)

After Aperture is a CG fan film with beautiful atmospherics and an understated elegance that attempts to explain what happens to Chell after she escapes from Aperture Science in the video game Portal 2.

Apparently the creator Zachariah Scott drew inspiration for the film from a sketch he saw of Chell sitting on the Companion Cube in the rain, and even though this short lacks action it has definitely captured the mood of life after Aperture.

Cute Android Figures Made From Random Junk

These cute little android figures were made by crafty Andrea Petrachi, and they look like a Jawa's dream come true!

They make up for their lack of mortal soul with an overabundance of personality and charm.

In fact, they're so neat looking that they could inspire a scifi series of their own, something likeRobobabies and the battle for the Junkyard...

The First Feature Length Film Shot Entirely On A Smartphone


(YouTube Link)

Olive looks like a cute little film, with an indie flair and a colorful cast, nothing too groundbreaking until you discover how the film was shot- entirely on a Nokia N8 smartphone!

Also noteworthy is the fact that Olive was created as a true independent, the first film to make it from small smartphone screen to the big screen without the backing of a major motion picture studio.

10 Of History’s Most Beautiful Typewriters

I miss seeing the old timey typewriters around town-the smell of the oil, the clack clack clack of the arms stamping letters onto parchment fed through sheet by sheet.

The elegance of typewriter design is the basis for this gallery, and I've never seen so many gorgeous letter clacking typing machines together in one place! See them all at Gizmodo.

Images Of American Tourists Taking In The Sights

Americans are converging on the 2012 London Olympic games in droves, so it's a great time to celebrate this summer of tourism with a photo series dedicated to the unique look of the Tourist.

The images in this gallery are by Roger Minick, who has been shooting his Sightseer series of American tourist portraits since the 70s. 

Times change, but the tourism's all the same...

A Vending Machine That Lets You Make Your Own Toy

This big old, shiny vending machine that lets you make your own toy, according to the designer toy molds contained within each machine.

So far they’ve only made the Helper Dragon by Tim Biskup, but you've gotta start somewhere...

Kids these days get to buy Tim Biskup toys out of a freakin’ vending machine?! *sigh* They’re living the good life.

Tintype Portraits By Michael Shindler

Michael Shindler is taking photography back to the old school with his series of tintype portraits, which cast modern people in an antiquated light.

I like the haunted look of the people in these portraits, the ways their eyes are lit up and how the shallow depth of field makes all that surrounds their head blur into obscurity.

Disney Princesses As Zombies

I’ve seen plenty of zombie crossovers, and Disney princesses are constantly being used as the subject of genre crossover art, but I’ve never seen those fairy tale gals looking so gruesome!

Created by Witit Karpkraikaew, this series leaves the beauty behind and focuses on the truly ghastly nature of the undead.

A whole new world… it’s not always a good thing!

The Ultimate Carnivore Travel Case

For the hungry traveler on the go may I present the Wurstkoffer, a safe plastic case that lets you carry around and protect an assortment of hearty German sausages and cured meats.

Now your delicious meaty treats can travel the world by your side, filling those around you with a strange feeling of nauseous envy.

“Is that a gun in your case, sir?”

“Nein, das ist meine Würste!”

This New Ragu Ad Is Naughty Fun

(YouTube Link)

This new ad for Ragu pasta sauce is all sorts of wrong.

A kid stumbles upon his parents sharing a bit of afternoon delight, then he tries to forget the horror of what he just witnessed by scarfing down a bowl of pasta.

Moral of the story- the scars of childhood go great with Ragu spaghetti sauce!

Graphic Design History Carved Into Stone

These motto stones are known as the Babson Boulders, named after millionaire philanthropist Roger Babson, who commissioned out of work stonecutters to carve words into the boulders around Dogtown Common, Massachusetts.

The Babson Boulders date back to the 1930s, and many of the slogans have that Depression Era air of inspired determination, like a stony band of self-help gurus.
