Recycled Magazine Shelf – Home Decor Inspiration

For some people, collecting old magazines is a serious hobby. It reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George’s father collected TV Guides. I don’t keep old magazines since they take up too much space in my house. If I did; however, I would want to do something like this with them. What a wonderful way to recycle old National Geographic magazines into something really cute! Created by Sean Miller, a designer from Seattle, this brightly colored shelf is a surprisingly useful and unique piece […]

The 24ct Gold Apple iPad – For The Sophisticated Geek

We all kinda knew this was coming, right? Funny, I’m not much of a gold girl. I prefer silver and platinum. This iPad looks a little gaudy to me. However, I know some people get into this stuff. Introducing… the 24ct gold plated iPad. Designer Stuart Hughes from Goldstriker creates these little shiny and delicious iPads. He has three available: 24ct gold, 18ct rose gold and 20ct white gold. In my opinion, embellishing the iPad with gold strips away the simplistic beauty of it all, […]

Is This The True Origin Of Pong, Tetris And Arkanoid?

I don’t think anyone out there who is moderately interested in video games doesn’t know about Pong, Tetris, Arkanoid, Super Mario and Sonic. They are some of the cult games that we all have in common from our childhood. We played them to the point that they became a part of our everyday lives, and we constantly kept dreaming about the games of tomorrow. The technology behind these games seemed endless and the graphics stunned us, no matter how basic they were. I always thought […]

Discovered Under Sheep Dung – The World’s Oldest Shoe!

Did you see it on the news yesterday? It’s being reported everywhere, and of course, it’s so bizarrely interesting, it also deserves a place on Bit Rebels. In a nutshell, the oldest shoe has been discovered. I know, it’s completely random and a little silly, but check this thing out! It looks nuts. Archaeologists date this shoe back 5,500 years! I see from the design, cavemen (or women) were not very fashion conscious back then. The shoe is a woman’s size 4 but since people […]

The Most Magical Paper Craft Castle In The World

We have featured a lot of paper craft art on Bit Rebels lately. As paper craft becomes more and more popular, we continue to see people push the limit on what can be created with a piece of paper. When @SuuperG sent a tweet today featuring this paper craft art installation created by Wataru Itou, I instantly had to stop what I was doing to write this article. What he has been able to create with paper, by folding each piece by hand, is absolutely […]

The Most Thrilling Free Dive You’ll Ever See

I haven’t been putting many videos in my articles lately. The reason is because I’ve become somewhat of a video snob. It has to be a really, really captivating one for me to include it. This 4-minute video took my breath away. I’ve always been fascinated with base jumping, and I’ve even written about it before on Bit Rebels. But check this out… this guy is base jumping underwater. I’ve never seen free diving like this before. It blows my mind. According to YouTube, this […]

Happy 1st Birthday Bit Rebels! – 10 Lessons We’ve Learned

My name is listed as the author on this article, but it is from all of us at Bit Rebels. Let me give you a little history… It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year since Bit Rebels began. It feels like just yesterday. I remember my dear friend @mistygirlph working hard on her first articles. She told me how excited she was to start this new blog with @Minervity. A few weeks later, @mistygirlph asked me in a DM on Twitter if I […]

You Don’t Want This Bug In Your System!

Bugs… not only are they insects that pest our gardens, houses and lives, but they are also a common occurrence in a programmer’s life. New code is never perfect, and usually it needs a few hours of tinker time in order for it to work just as it’s intended. Getting these “bugs” out of your system can sometimes be tedious and time consuming work though. The reason they are called “bugs” is because of that particular reason. You never know where they are and sometimes […]

Lego Printer – Simply Amazing!

LEGO is a brand that I grew up loving. The colorful bricks are a way for many people to unleash their creativity. It may be a very simple toy, but it truly provides hours and hours of fun. There are so many things that you can build with LEGO. The only limit is the limit you give your own creativity and imagination. People have even built space crafts, human sculptures and dioramas with just LEGO bricks. I found another cool item that was built using […]

If Geeks Ruled The World…This Is What It Would Look Like!

It’s an odd title I know, especially when it’s already true. I mean with Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and the two friends, Larry Page and Sergey Brin (who founded one of the world’s most successful companies – Google), setting the pace and lifestyle we’re enjoying today, it’s hard to say geeks are not already ruling the world. Then again, a geek has yet to become President, and until one does, I guess we’ll have to hold back on that statement. However, a bunch of creative […]

6 Ways To Overcome Social Media Burnout

It is very difficult for me to write this article. I’m going to do it anyway because I think by sharing my experience; it might be helpful to someone else going through the same thing. I love social media, and I’m typically on Twitter, FaceBook, Flickr, YouTube, etc… every day. It is not unusual for me to send 50 tweets in a day. I’m what you would call “very active.” About two months ago, I noticed that I started making changes in my life to […]
