C-3PO and R2D2 postcards now available over at my ETSY shop! $10.00 for a ten-pack! That’s one dollar a card! That’s REASONABLE! Go grab some, pleeeease!
This is the latest in what is now, I guess, a series of schematic looks at iconic videogame weaponry. Behold: the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device! This is a DOUBLE-SIDED poster (to satisfy both orange and blue enthusiasts) for sale on Etsy right HERE right NOW, unless they sell out.
In related news, there are only 2 sets of the three-poster Mega Man Buster Schematic prints left!
So, I built this about 6 years ago back when I had a Dremel and a Garage where nobody would bug me. If I still had either of the aforementioned things I’d totally make them all the time and put them up on Etsy, but oh well. I’m going to PAX East this weekend, but I don’t have a costume - I am considering just wearing this (yeah, it’s got a belt clip and everything) with a corduroy blazer and telling anyone who asks that I’m Professor Jedi.
(NERD) OPINION POLL: Is this clever? Do you immediately see it, if you are the sort of person who would recognize this sort of thing? People with Degrees in Science, I’m looking at you.
Finally, how many - if any -of you heard this in your head when you read the title?
This might come off as painfully self-serving, pathetically nerdy, or both, but this is my computer’s boot screen. If you’re running OS X, and you’re into tiny useless aesthetic modifications that are only visible for a few seconds at a time then you too can change your boot image from the default greyscale Apple logo to something different using a free app called BootXChanger. As you can see, I prefer to have the Daily Robot greet me during start-up, and I’ve been seeing it a lot lately due to some computer issues (which are, naturally, entirely unrelated to this modification). This new and unpleasant familiarity is why I chose to make it today’s robot. If you to want use this image as your boot icon let me know, and I will try to find the .png I used, which seems to have gone missing, otherwise you can make your own if that sort of useless toil interests you.
