Geeky briefs.

Computer Code Briefcase.$24.99. What better way to say that you love Keanu, than to wander around in a black plastic mac carrying one of these? Well actually there are probably lots of ways, but we won’t go there right now.  This nifty looking briefcase is solidly constructed and covered in sleek black vinyl. On the sides is printed a slew of text uuencoded in old-school monitor green. It can’t be translated, due to the silver metal fittings and trim, but…

Ambient TV.

The Color Light DVD. Use this DVD to turn your television into something infinitely more useful than a reality show barf-box – a table lamp. $22.00.  But to use your TV for background lighting we have just the thing. The Color Light DVD is a disc that will transition your TV through the entire color spectrum over about a 20-minute time span.

Barcode Elvis.

Barcode Elvis. A flipbook of a zoom animation of Elvis dissolving into a (his?) barcode? Weirdness for $10.00 and part of a set of six character books in total. But kind of cute.

Kami Robo.

Kami Robo. Er..paper robots. Wrestling. What more needs to be said?  At the age of 10, Tomohiro Yasui began constructing robots out of paper to give form to his fantasy arena of wrestling robot fighters.

You are getting sleepy…

The Hypnodisk. $350.00. Ferrety reader Kaden makes ‘unconventional contrivances and machina arcana.’ They’re fun and rather nicely done, methinks.  The new benchmark in desk accessories, the ideal gift for the hard-to-buy-for, and significantly more appropriate recognition for the Boardroom Brigadier than another damned soapstone carving of a hooded ptarmigan.

Strange but true.

The Strangerhood. A soap opera set and performed within the Sims 2 computer game? Too weird.  The Strangerhood began in the summer of 2004 when Burnie Burns and the rest of the Rooster Teeth Productions crew realized that they would not be satisfied until they spent every single free second making some kind of internet cartoon. They scanned the horizon for the latest and greatest new games, and settled on the obvious choice – The Sims 2.

Artocracy. Art for the masses, by the masses? Power up the inkjet printer and play!  Artocracy was started to help artists make extra money through digital and downloadable prints…We realize that a digital print is not a one of a kind artwork; they are not meant to be. These prints are to bring challenging ideas, innovative artworks, and people together. Not all art has to be precious, there is a freedom in having it not be precious. Artocracy is about the…

Baby bling.

Infantile’s Gold Chains T for baby. $22.00. Er…very New York, eh?  Teach your kid the advantages of flossing at a young age — Brooklyn-based artist Maya Hayuk comes correct with these gold ropes. “Ma ma,” “da da,” “bling bling.” Makes sense to us.
