Pizzasaurus Necklace: Because Dinosaurs Love Pizza, Too

Pizza Dinosaur Necklace

Dinosaurs are awesome. So is pizza. And what do you get when you combine both? The equally awesome Pizzasaurus necklace by Snash Jewelry. The pendant essentially features a particularly scary-looking triceratops (at least, I think it’s a triceratops) chomping on a gigantic slice of pizza (considering the size of that dinosaur on a true-to-life scale.)

The heavy-duty pendant hangs on a 24-inch chain and can be rocked by both guys and gals. It’s available in antique gold or silver plating and is available online for $144.

There’s No Data Like Home: The Motherboard of Shoes

Motherboard Shoes

Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers took her home if she clicked her heels thrice and repeated, “There’s no place like home.” While this pair of shoes by Steven Rodrig won’t take you home no matter how many times you click your heels, it’s the pair that all geek girls who have a passion for data will want to have. Not because they want to wear it or anything (because it looks incredibly painful if they were to do so) but because they just want to marvel at the awesomeness of it.

Steven used old printed circuit boards from discarded computers and electronics to create this unique pair. He’s actually well known for his PCB art, and these shoes dubbed as “There’s No Data Like Home” have been featured numerous times. In fact, it was displayed at an exhibit recently in New York before Steven finally decided to part with it and listed it on his Etsy shop.

Super Mario Doorbell is a Huge Level Up From the Usual

You might want to get your tools ready, because you’ll probably never be satisfied with your current doorbell after you see the one programmer Joseph Thai has by his front door. It was created with a Super Mario Brothers theme in mind. The button is covered with an image of a coin, and there’s a counter that keeps track of how many times the doorbell has been pressed (or how many coins have already been collected. Get it?)

Every time a guest presses the coin button, the counter displayed will increment and the coin sound from Mario will be played. As a special bonus, every 10 coins will cause the life-up sound to be played, and every 100 coins will cause the mushroom upgrade sound to be played.

Want to make your own? Joseph was nice enough to post all the technical stuff on his website.

‘Intersections’ And Its Four Walls of Intricate Shadows

Cube Lamp

There’s nothing simple about this cube right here. Dubbed as “Intersections,” it has intricate patterns on each of its six faces that are projected onto the walls of the room that it’s in when the light placed inside its chamber is turned on. Clearly, this is not your regular lamp. It’s actually an art installation by Anila Quayyum Agha which measures six-and-a-half feet on each side.

Anila explains that the project is an exploration of “intersections of culture and religion, the dynamics and interpretation of space and sight as it threaded through cultures and emerged as varied expressions that redefine themselves with the passage of time.”

On-the-Road Art: Artist’s Hilarious Sketches of His Fellow Passengers

Drawing Passengers

What do you do when you’re on a bus or on the subway? When there are no sights to see outside and you’re bored with all the apps on your phone (including the game that cannot be won, Flappy Bird), what is there left to do?

At this point, I just take a quick nap or listen to some music, but what artist October Jones does is play a game. He sketches up a new head for other passengers and then holds them up over the actual person’s head to show what a good fit the new head is. You can check out more of his on-the-go artwork after the break.

The Only Giant Stash That Won’t Get You Arrested

Giant Stash Pillow

Designer Ryan Christensen has a thing for coming up with unusual art, and the Giant Stash pillowcase is an epitome of his bizarre style. As the name implies, it’s essentially a bag of ganja of epic proportions that’ll fit most pillows snugly. It was personal project at first that he brought to Kickstarter after seeing people’s positive reactions towards it.

Awhile back I decided to make a pillowcase that looked like a plus size zippy full of cannabis. Days later I had several varieties. After getting huge smiles and great reactions from people, I realized how much fun they were to have around, so I decided to keep working on them.

Mini Diorama Rings: Wearable Art For Your Digits

Diorama Rings

Jewelry is essentially wearable art. But something that’s more “art” than “jewelry” are these mini diorama rings by designer Clive Roddy. Each piece is actually made of three rings, with each layer sporting a piece of the final design. The rings are laser-cut from high-quality birch plywood and can be worn together (for the full effect) or alone (if you’re feeling conservative).

They’re available in a variety of designs: House Rings (three houses that are different sizes), Tree Rings, Mountain Rings, and Wave Rings. Personally, the last one is my favorite. Hit the break for images of the other designs.

So This Is a Knight Light

Knight Light

If you want to have a night light that only a handful will ever have, then you might want to make your own. That’s what Mr. Hyde did when he came up with the Knight Light, which is basically a knight’s helm creatively propped up by an ornate-looking stand. You’ll need the helm, some wires, metal tubing for the support, and a crankshaft from a car (but this one’s optional.)

Instructions on how to make the Knight Light are posted on Instructables.

2013 Year In Review, Play-Doh Style

Play Doh Year in Review

Looking back on 2013, would you say that it was a good year or a bad year? For most people, I think the good stuff and the bad stuff balance out in the end. If there was more good than bad, then good for you. If there was more bad than good, then here’s to hoping you’ll have better luck in 2014.

Presenting some of the most memorable moments of 2013 is Play Doh with their Year in Review series that you can check out on their social media pages: FacebookTwitter and Instagram. For starters, we all learned what sound the fox makes (no thanks to Ylvis). Hit the break to check out more notable events from 2013 done up in Play-Doh style.
