Cinemart Movie Art Mashup Poster

Cinemart: Blending Art And Cinema

The blending of two different worlds can create some really cool and unique combinations for sure. I don’t think I even have to go into the the description once again since I have written about it plenty of times before. If you are a new visitor to Bit Rebels, you might want a speed recap of what I am talking about. That would be quite simple I think as it would just be to tell you to search for the word “Mashup” on Bit Rebels, ...

Biggest Comic Strip Ever Made

New World Record: Largest Comic Strip Ever Created

Just this past weekend, a group of students in France decided they were going to snag the new world record for the largest comic strip ever created. However, if you know about the Guinness Book of World Records, you know it’s no joke. There are very specific rules each person or group in that book has had to follow in order to be officially granted their prestigious award. This endeavor was no exception. In order to achieve their goal, not only would the students have ...

Simple Life Lessons Illustrations

Stuff Nobody Tells Us About Life Illustrated

I love it when artists find a way to incorporate the life lessons they’ve learned through their experiences into creative illustrations and visuals. An example of this is in the article In A Perfect World: Life’s Daily Annoyances Illustrated. Another artist who creates “life illustrations” is Alex Noriega. On his blog he writes, “At some point in 2010 I was going through a crisis due to some issues at work. I decided to start this blog as a way of trying to find what I ...

Over Evaluation Of Social Companies

The Social Networking Service Evaluation Bubble [Infographic]

A while back, we were amazed by the fact that you could actually earn millions of dollars by starting a website. Some people did it, and they were the winners of the IT boom not too long ago. In the end of that particular bubble, you didn’t even have to have a website in order to earn millions off of it. You might look like a big question mark right now, but that’s actually true. At the end of the whole IT bubble (the first), ...

Soda Super Mario Store Displays

Next Generation Super Mario Packaging Store Displays

Recently I have been mesmerized by the intricate designs of store displays. They go to extravagant lengths to make us buy their stuff, and it usually works. Unfortunately we don’t have many here where I am located, but I get my fix by checking out the displays that are available on the Internet. And let me tell you, there are quite a few of them available. Even though the designs themselves may not be too hard to recreate, it’s pretty cool to see how they ...

How We Use Our Brains

How We Use Our Brains [Infographic]

I don’t know how many times a day I stumble over the fact that we’re only using 20% of our brain while 80% is utter gray matter that is constantly idle. If we’re only using this little of our brains, what could possibly be hiding in the other 80%? Maybe it is purely for development, or maybe it’s for storing larger and more detailed information for the future. The thought must have struck scientists and researchers before that the fantastic and impressive nature in itself ...

5 Tips To Make Anything Happen In Life

I really love this quote from Philip Adams, “Unless you’re willing to have a go, fail miserably, and have another go, success won’t happen.” I had the opportunity to hear a talk about how Disney works in terms of their thinking when it comes to strategy. I must say, they follow simple rules yet you can see the impact in everything they do. Some people I know have dreams and goals that they know can be accomplished, and yet they hold back and tell themselves ...

XBox Millennium Falcon Mod Console

Beautification: The Star Wars Millennium Falcon XBox Mod

I think it’s obvious to anyone reading Bit Rebels that we really like geeky cool stuff, especially gadgets that have been customized or modded. It’s really nice to know that we aren’t just sticking to the same ole boring designs that we sometimes see in the stores when we’re hunting down our next gadget. If you go into any store today looking for a computer for example, especially a PC, then you will quickly realize that they all look pretty much the same. It’s when ...

Super Mario Ghostbusters Pixel Design

Retro 8-Bit Super Mario Ghostbusters Mashup

Some of you may have seen my post about the Depixelization Software that I wrote about the other day. It’s basically an algorithm that transforms pixelated retro game art into smooth and up-to-date graphics. I have a sneaky suspicion that it compiles it into vectors which in turn makes the art not only smooth and sleek looking, but also sizable into just about any size you want without losing any quality. It’s a great little trick that will most definitely get it’s own little chip ...

In A Perfect World: Life’s Daily Annoyances Illustrated

Have you ever had a day when you woke up at the wrong time because the AM/PM got mixed up on your alarm, then you walked to the kitchen only to realize there was no milk to put in your cereal? You reached for your iPhone, but it was out of battery. I haven’t had a day that started out that rocky in a while, but they can happen to the best of us. It really comes down to the classic half empty/half full argument. ...

Guitar Wire Coiled Bracelet

For Music Lovers: The Handmade Guitar String Bracelet

This is creativity at its best. Who would ever think to hand roll vintage sheet music and carefully coil steel guitar strings to create a beautiful bracelet? Tanith Rohe, a jewelry maker from the San Fransico Bay area, did. She is a self-proclaimed urban archaeologist and thrift store shopper. According to her Etsy page, one day she looked at her guitar string and realized it would make the perfect wire for coiling into jewelry. She likes to take what some people might consider trash (like ...

Beard and Mustache Hat

Beard Beanie: The Geeky Way To Keep Your Face Warm

I remember when I wrote about the Snuggie For Geeks last year. Up until now, I never thought I would see anything more ridiculously geeky for people to wear to stay warm. I found something today though that I think beats that snuggie hands down. I’d like to present to you the beard hat a.k.a. the beard beanie. As much as this makes me giggle, I suppose if I was a guy with a beard, and if I was visiting the North Pole or skiing ...

Running In High Heels

World Record In Stiletto Racing (Yeah, It’s Possible)

I love high heels. I’ve been wearing them for years. I started out wearing them because I’m short, and every cosmo girl knows that nothing can make you feel more large and in charge than a hot pair of stilettos. However, I’m not going to lie, it takes practice to get used to wearing them. You have to walk with a whole different type of awareness when wearing a pair of shoes like that. Did you know that stiletto is also a word that describes ...

Party Battleship Drinking Game

Sink Your Ship With The Battleship Drinking Game

Hmm… I can’t decide if this looks like fun or if it would be a puking disaster. Brazilian design student, Mauricio (Tony) Harion, created this new version of the classic Battleship game. It’s for adults only, and it’s called Enigma – Battleship Drinking Game. According to Coroflot, “It’s played just like the usual Battleship game with one addition. If you miss the target you drink a sip of water, and if you hit an enemy boat, your opponent empties the corresponding shot glass.” This game ...
