Twitter Facebook Google Are Addicting

If Social Media Sites Were Real Addictions [Chart]

We often hear people joke around that they are addicted to their social media sites. To those of us who hear that everyday (because we ourselves are addicted), it’s really just a way of life. It’s no big deal, right? To people who aren’t on their computer all day long with a window minimized for Facebook, Twitter and Google+ like many of us, we seem like a bunch of insane drones, oblivious to the world around us. What if all our favorite social media sites ...

Online Photo Sharing: Comparing The Services [Infographic]

Once again, I fall short for how to compare the old times with the new. Not too long ago we used to put this little plastic thing into our cameras, and it contained something called film. Yup, I am not kidding, I promise. Nowadays we just slide in a small memory card, and it can sometimes hold thousands of high resolution images which means more time to take snapshots and less time having to switch film rolls every 24-36 pictures. We’ve had this new memory ...

Luxury Boat Concept Design

Wow! An Entire Tropical Island Built On A Yacht

Lately I’ve been coming across some of the wildest most creative architecture I’ve ever seen. It’s so cool when architects and designers have a concept design in their head, and they are somehow able to get other people excited about it along with them before it even exists. That’s the case with this luxurious design. It looks like a fantasy dream come true to me. I’ve taken a few cruises in my life, but overall, I’ve never really been into them. When I take a ...

Super Mario Piranha Plant Earrings

Super Mario Piranha Plant Earring: Brilliant Nerd Accessory

It’s been a long time since anyone has sent me any geek gear to share with you, so I actually started looking for some myself. We’re always so focused on bringing you creatively cool stuff that cannot be easily acquired, but maybe you guys really want to know where to get all the super nerdy stuff. After all, we are geeks, and we need our fix. So what is there out there that is worth a mention? There is a lot actually, and choosing the ...

Liquid Letters As Typography Fonts

Liquid Fonts: An Awesome Type Experiment

I am used to checking out at least a dozen new fonts each day. Why? Well, because I am a designer, and I need some inspiration sometimes. I am sure all you designers out there know what I am talking about. Looking at new fonts is one of the best ways to really get a boring uninspired day going. If you haven’t tried it before, you should, because it could totally turn a frustrating day into a truly fruitful day with a lot of original ...

CD Landscape Sea Dune Installment

45,000 Hand-Sewn CDs Become Spectacular Sea Dunes

I sometimes wonder what happened to the recording medium that researchers and experts told us would grace the world right after the CD. I think someone was way off when thinking it would be a physical thing we would buy in a store. The mp3 format, even though it’s really not the original mp3 format, has taken over the world. We no longer rush to the stores to get the latest album we like. Nope, the mp3 based file format that we’re used to buying ...

Creation Of The Original Stormtrooper

The Creation Of The Original Stormtrooper Helmet From Scratch

There is so much Star Wars awesomeness out there that I am sure if I really wanted to, I could cover several week’s worth of article content with it. It ranges from original never before seen photos of the actual shooting of the first Star Wars movie to Star Wars pens that light up like Christmas trees. You can really find it all out there, and it’s hard to focus on just the best sometimes. I instantly feel like I have found awesomeness when I ...

Bakebot Robot Makes Cookies

A Robot That Can Follow A Recipe & Bake Cookies

We’ve seen a lot of robots over the past few years, and when you see the video below, you might not think it’s anything really impressive. However, think about it… This robot can mix up homemade cookie dough, knead it to just the right consistency, make a giant cookie, and bake it for exactly the correct amount of time. Do you know how complicated that is? I can’t even do that. Daaaaang! According to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “The process of creaming butter and ...

Summer Ice Cream Cone Photography

Delicious Drippy & Gooey Ice Cream Cone Photographs

Yesterday, for the first time, I noticed that we are in the last month of the summer here in Atlanta. It’s starting to get dark just a little earlier than it did a month ago. Instead of being 100 degrees or more, today it’s only 90 degrees. I realize that if I plan to write about any more summery articles, I’d better do it now before it’s all gone. Nothing symbolizes summertime in the South much more than ice cream, especially drippy, messy, make-your-hands-sticky ice ...

Zombie Inspired Bowling Balls

Severed Zombie Head Bowling Ball Designs

I remember about two years ago when zombies suddenly became really popular. I’m not sure exactly if it was a movie or television show that started the craze. There was the Twilight series of course, but that is vampire-themed, and as you know, vampires are very different from zombies. If you don’t know the difference, you can check out Vampires vs. Zombies: Do You Know The Difference? My friend Jessica Northey always says, “Vampires are hot, zombies are not.” We’ve seen a lot of zombie-inspired ...

Emmy Award Nominees On Twitter

The Effect Of Twitter Followers On Emmy Awards [Infographic]

In case you don’t live in the States, I’ll quickly explain what a Primetime Emmy Award is. It’s an award presented in recognition of excellence in American primetime television. It’s basically the television equivalent of a Grammy Award (for music) and an Academy Award (for movies). For the past two years, the only television I’ve really watched is the Super Bowl in January. I might have picked up an American Idol episode here or there, but nothing regular, so I’m not very familiar with the ...

Tilt-Shift Photography Creates Perspective

A Tiny Tilt-Shift Time-Lapse World Created With A Smartphone

Tilt-shift photography is a technique that makes the end result simulate a miniature scene. I’ve always thought of it as a very complicated procedure requiring fancy lenses and camera equipment. However, amateur photographer Stu Kennedy recently showed the world that not only do you not have to have fancy camera equipment, but you can also get this effect from simply taking a video with a smartphone and editing it. He used his Samsung Galaxy S2, which has an 8-megapixel camera and can video in HD ...

House Made From Books Bookshelves

Architecture: A Cozy House Created From Bookshelves

As we all know, now that we are experiencing the era of the iPad and Kindle, traditional books are becoming less and less popular. As a matter of fact, even some elementary schools are replacing books with iPads. I have a friend who just got her packet for attending University in the fall, and it came complete with an iPad 2 and a list of e-books to order for her classes. People are handling this major transition in different ways. There are those who always ...
