It's hard to believe that this G.I. Joe video game is fan made, and available to download for free!
Attack Cobra Island plays like a classic sidescrolling arcade brawler, and even though it isn't the prettiest fan made game I've ever seen, it has lots of retro charm and looks like more fun to play than the original G.I. Joe game on the NES.
If only someone would make a G.I. Joe game where you can play as Cobra...
These gorgeously inaccurate anatomical artworks are by Valerio Carrubba, an Italian artist with a penchant for combining images of what lies beneath the skin with the beauty of the natural world.
His works are inspired by anatomical artists of the past, such as Jean Baptiste Marc Bourgery and Jacques Fabien Gautier d'Agoty, but he adds an interesting background element to form a complete, if somewhat disgusting, picture.
These eye popping, neon colored illustrations are by Japanese artist Keiichi Tanaami, who wants to feed warped imagery to your head until it explodes!
Inspired by a trip to NYC in the 1960s, during which he had the good fortune to meet Andy Warhol, Keiichi went home with a head full of dreams and started creating these far out works of psychedelic art.
Here's a fun idea in home improvement that would actually make a pretty cool DIY project for the skateboard obsessed in your life.
The folks at Notcot's Experimental Studio came up with this great idea- with just a few drilled holes, and maybe a coat of paint, your fan can McTwist the day away on skateboard blades and still provide a good breeze.
Parts of Detroit already seem like a scary place to visit, but add a zombie theme park and you've got a nightmare in the making.
Entrepreneur Mark Siwak feels that a zombie themed adventure might be just the thing to revitalize abandoned sections of Detroit, but to me it just sounds like a bad idea leading up to one hell of a lawsuit.
And what's up with the childlike scribbles they're calling concept art? I guess Mark's kids are helping out with the development phase of Z-World Detroit.
Slit-scan is a form of video processing that results in some rather mind blowing effects. Here's how it's done:
1. record a video of your action 2. extract each frame as an individual image (the opposite to what you would do for a time lapse) 3. extract a vertical single pixel wide line from each image (for example a line from the center) 4. stack those lines horizontally from left to right to form an actual "slit scan" image
Sounds easier than sitting through an entire slit-scan video!
And I know that this video is about a year old, but if you haven't seen it before it's new to you!
Here's a fun way to make a parking garage look like less of an eyesore-paint it over to look like a giant bookshelf, housing classic novels such as The Invisible Man, The Lord Of The Rings and....Silent Springs? How did that one get in there?
Oh I see, the townsfolk of Kansas City voted on which classic works of literature would appear on the parking garage wall.
I guess KC is lucky that a giant copy of 50 Shades Of Gray didn't end up on the shelf!
These reproductions of famous paintings take collage art to a whole new level of cool, and demonstrate a good use for all the magazines piling up in the corner of the living room.
They were created by Vik Muniz, a Brooklyn based artist whose passion is hacking up the printed page with scissors and gluing the bits together to make pretty pictures, reconstructing disposable magazines into something timeless.
It's a beautiful mess, with minute details only visible in the image blow up, details which show the meticulous care that went into each piece.
Animator Malcolm Sutherland pays tribute to the heroes in a half shell by letting them show you some of their sweet ninja moves, but they look like they're feeling a bit under the weather so don't stare too hard.
I would love it if they made a reboot of the Ninja Turtles TV series drawn in this style!
