Bacon Cologne: Now You Can Smell Like A Pig All Day

If you thought for one moment that the bacon revolution was about to end, you are wrong. Bacon is like social media. People keep waiting for the trend to end, but in reality, it’s just getting stronger and stronger, and by that, I’m referring to the smell in my kitchen right now as I cook some of it. We’ve written about bacon on Bit Rebels too many times to count; however, what you might not know is that there is a scientific reason why we […]

Super Mario Mushroom: Hidden Typography Secrets

Recently I have grown fond of things that come across looking like a regular design, yet they hold a lot more than instantly meets the eye. Creating such art is harder than it looks since you have to plan your design from the get go. Just bundling up a few things hoping someone will perceive it as an ordinary design isn’t really the way to go with this. No, you really have to get into it, research and go about it in a backwards kind […]

Game Boy Music: But Not The Kind We’re Used To

Writing and producing music has a lot of facets that most people are unaware of. There are several procedures that you do to get the sounds, instruments and vocals to really pop out of a mix to make it break through the overall noise of a song. With today’s technology, you don’t have to have expensive instruments in order to create appealing sounds that sound like regular instruments. A tap on a cigarette package can easily be EQed into sounding like a kick drum or […]

Geek Zodiac Version 2.0: The Only Horoscope To Follow

Do you follow your horoscope? I read today that 25% of Americans do, and that number seemed high to me. I remember back in January when all those false reports came out about how the stars have shifted in the sky since 2,000 years ago when the horoscope signs were created. Therefore, our horoscopes are all wrong. Since they are off by about a month, if you were once an Aquarius, now you are a Capricorn, etc… Then, CNN came out with this article to […]

Han Solo and Princess Leia’s Wedding Rings

Ok all you geek girls out there; have you ever wondered what Han Solo and Princess Leia’s wedding rings might look like if they got married? You haven’t? Well I have, I guess it’s just the girly girl in me that always wants the fairytale ending. We all know that Han Solo was a totally hot badass. He was sexy, confident, brave and even romantic in his own reckless mercenary kind of way. He and his buddy Chewbacca were always two of my favorite characters […]

Fun Design: Fuzzy Felted Marshmallow Peeps

This is such a fun time of year. I always look forward to coloring eggs and collecting marshmallow peeps. Yep, that’s right, since they pretty much taste like sugared plywood, I don’t eat peeps. But they are so darn cute, so I like to collect them in all different colors and keep them in a basket in my kitchen. We often celebrate springtime on Bit Rebels by writing about colored eggs and peeps. It seems that artists everywhere are inspired by these Easter traditions. If […]

Hasselblad Camera: The Working Downloadable Version

If you consider yourself to be a photographer, and if you are even remotely interested in the ins and outs of different cameras, you should really know what Hasselblad is all about. It’s of course the world’s most sought after camera. The price tag for an old one is unbelievably high, yet the awesome quality and the distinct original images make it an enigma amongst photographers all around the world. It was also the camera (Hasselblad 500EL) that took the first images of a human […]

Star Wars Cosplay Steampunk Costumes Will Leave You Baffled

I must be a true sucker for everything that has to do with science fiction cause I keep stumbling over these doggone awesome things over and over again. Star Wars of course seems to be the overall focal point for creative geeks, and I sometimes wonder which has the largest following, Star Wars or Star Trek? Anyone have a good estimate to what the numbers are? If not, maybe perhaps in percentage of science fiction fans in general? While Star Wars stuff is fairly easy […]

Lego Ray Gun: Insane Build With Amazing Retro Feel

When it comes to Lego guns, there are really two camps. There are those that either embrace the creativeness, or those that really hate the concept because it has to do with weapons. I can understand the concern, however there is a distinct difference between play and reality. Young kids might not be able to relate, but as we grow up, most of us learn the logics of human nature. Lego serves as a discovery tool and a way to create what you imagine over […]

Apple’s Official Playset Brings The Apple Store Home To You

Leave it to Apple to figure out a way to create lifelong customers from the moment a toddler picks up one of these little Apple Store playsets. This looks like so much fun; I want to order one for myself. I guess it’s not enough that I have a MacBook Pro, iMac, iPod, iPad and iPhone. I really don’t need this too, but when has needing something ever been a reason to buy an Apple product? We buy them because we want them, and we […]

Real Snail Mail: Get Your Mail Delivered By Real Snails

When I first read about this, I was like, noooooo way! As it turns out, not only is it true, but it’s been around for a few years. I’ve written about some wild and wacky stuff before, but I think this one is at the top of the list. I was able to trace it all the way back to this Time article in 2008. Vicki Isley and Paul Smith, researchers at UK’s Bournemouth University set out to do something completely opposite all the trends. […]

Geek Heaven: The Map of the Internet

I remember back in the days when I didn’t have a computer at home with Internet access. My first ISP was Mindspring, and to this day, I still have my first Mindspring email address. I pay extra each month just to keep it. I’m a sucker for anything retro and nostalgic, including email addresses. It’s so strange because kids these days are the first generation of true digital natives, and they will never know life without the Internet, well, unless someday in the future it’s […]

Decoding Your Dreams: Every Dream Has A Message [Infographic]

Do you by any chance remember your latest dream? Do you have any clue what it might mean? There is a whole science out there that focuses on decoding whatever dream you might have had. That should not come as a surprise though since we are always trying to decode them ourselves. I am sure you’ve found yourself vividly explaining your latest odd dream to your friends or loved ones trying to get a debate going about what it might mean. Even though there are […]

US vs. UK: A Freelancer Paycheck Comparison

Being a freelancer can sometimes be very stressful, and if you don’t keep up the discipline, you will find that your freelance career is quickly going to be over. It’s a process that has to be maintained, polished and looked over each and every day. For people who believe that weekends are holy, then I would say that freelancing is not for you. Working long and odd hours is probably what freelancing is all about. The more you push into a day’s worth of work, […]

Original Ads: Segway Has Finally Gone Medieval On Us

Yesterday I got so tired of the way that TV commercials always go to the extreme to sound “legit” that I decided to push the power off button and started reading up on some HTML 5 and SQL database optimizing. Yeah, it wasn’t the most exciting trade, but it was necessary. I found it quite interesting to be quite honest with you. In between the line breaks, I started thinking that surely there must be some commercials out there that are at least a little […]
