Stamp Yo Face, Watch Yourself: Custom Rubber Stamps of Your Face

Stamp Yo Face

You don’t have to be crafty or artsy to appreciate the awesomeness of Stamp Yo Face. The online business offers something that no other company has offered before: custom rubber stamps that bear your image and likeness.

You can use it to “sign” letters, personalize stationary, decorate labels, and basically just stamp stuff to revel in your good looks (and be appropriately embarrassed over your vanity.)

Custom Printed City Sights Photo Pillows

City Pillows

Bored with throw pillows bearing conventional designs, cartoon characters, and (even worse) the mugs of boy band members? Then it’s time to whip your camera out and upload a couple choice shots of sights you love in your city on to Hatch.

Hatch makes customized throw pillows featuring the image of your choice. They’ll also trace the outline of the building, landmark, or object and use that to come up with the shape and size of the pillow. From the Empire State Building and park benches to random pigeons and the Eiffel Tower, the possibilities are endless.

CES 2014: CyberPowerPC Unveils Customizable Steam Machines

CyberPowerPC Steam Machine

Who doesn’t love announcements about new Steam Machines? Not just upgraded models, but fully-customizable ones that you can tweak and modify to your liking at that. CyberPowerPC made the announcement at CES 2014, with prices starting at $499. The gaming consoles (or is it gaming PC?) will feature Bluetooth connectivity, WiFi, USB 3.0, 8GB of RAM, and will come with a Steam Controller.

Steam Machine A, which is the cheaper of their new offerings, is equipped with a 3.9GHz A6 CPU from AMD and a 2GB Radeon R9 270 graphics card, which should be enough to run most games without a hitch. Meanwhile, Steam Machine I, which is the higher-end model, comes built with 3.5GHz Core i3 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 graphics. The former starts at $499, while the price for the latter starts at $699.

These Are Just About The Slickest NES Shoes We’ve Seen

NES-shoes-1

Talent and hard work gets you anything, right? We’re not so sure that’s a universal axiom, but it should be. And every so often, it is, as is the case with the custom painted shoes from Kohl’s Customs. We’re not sure how much time Michael Kohl, an art teacher from Toronto, spent on these awesome NES kicks, but he did feel it sufficient to charge (and get) $450 for them. They’re clearly one of a kind, but Michael seems willing to work for hire, so head on over to his site and place an order if you so fancy. Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures, so you can get a better idea of Mike’s craftsmanship.

Predator Helmet Could Help You Get Some Respect On The Road

predator-motorcycle-helmet

This is one badass looking helmet. Based on a regular helmet structure (and thus, safe), Russian-based NLO Moto sculpts with fiberglass, carbon fiber and polycarbonate a crazy looking helmet reminiscent of the Predator. It’s complete with a dreadlock mullet and a tri-laser LED light, which can be upgraded to become a (possibly illegal) actual tri-laser. Other upgrades include carbon spearheads that attach at the tip of the dreadlocks, and “top level airbrushing”. Keep in mind that this is all on top of the base price, which stands at a hefty $780. That’s a lot of money to spend on a motorcycle helmet, so here’s hoping your ride is equally impressive.

Here Is A $15 Million iPhone Crusted In Gold And 26 Carat Black Diamond

15million-dollar-gold-plated-diamond-iphone

The above is ugly. At least, we think it’s ugly. It’s ugly and ostentatious and we show it to you because we’re as amused to learn of its existence as we were when we read about the guy who made himself a $230,000 shirt out of gold. We aren’t going to start making any social commentary on why we think some rich people feel the need to show off their wealth in a tasteless manner, but clearly it happens, and the least we can do is laugh at it. So, what’s with this phone? It was commissioned to British designer Stuart Hughes by a Hong Kong businessman only known as “Joe”. It’s gold plated, crusted with 600 white diamonds, and has a 26-carat black diamond centerpiece as the home button. Joe allegedly paid $15 million for the finished product.

Dude Makes Custom-Painted Minifig Babies

By David Ponce

Custom painted toys are nothing new under the sun. Very often however the paint chips off or you’re stuck with bad quality stickers. We’re told the guys at CitizenBrick offer higher quality items. More importantly, they offer some neat looking items, such as the baby minifigs you see in the picture above. Because, hey, if there aren’t babies, then why are there so many minifigs around? At $1 a pop, you better hope they’re good quality.

Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures of other custom painted LEGO figurines.

Aerodyne Is A Pretty Hand-Made Art Deco PC

By David Ponce

Jeffrey Stephenson got a Mini-ITX case recently, and decided to put a lot of pretty things around it. Made from mahogany with aluminum accents, the Aerodyne has an Intel i3 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive. Jeffrey decided that he’d make 5 to 10 of these and sell them, only on order. So you can contact him at jeffrey at slipperyskip.com and get some details. We’re too afraid to ask the price, but we did have fun wondering if we’d ever be able to make one ourselves (the truth? Heck no!). See, Jeffrey has made available over 150 photographs of the build; this is one intricate job.
