    This is the 114-foot LEGO tower built in Budapest, Hungary. It beats the previous record holder (that was built by a bunch of schoolchildren) by a little over a foot. What I don't understand is why did they only beat the record by a foot? If I set out to build the world's ta... / Continue →

    Because who needs human friends, this is a video of a guy playing Jenga with his pal Moe the cat. Moe is pretty good too. At least until he rage-quits and knocks a couple pieces off the top at the end. The best part though is at 0:30 when he gets impatient and knocks one of ... / Continue →

    This is the custom Minecraft themed lawn chair built by Redditor kaptaingunner to be sold at a fundraising event. What kind of fundraiser? No clue, but I just bid a million dollars on it, so hopefully not one for the advancement of robot technology. In my mind it was cancer ... / Continue →

    Part of Interstate 79 was shut down in Harrison County, West Virginia yesterday afternoon after a mysterious LEGO spill obstructed one of the lanes. Go home Santa, you're drunk. When reached for comment, one local resident had this to say, "Hands down the most exciting thing ... / Continue →

    This is a German train bridge painted by street artist 'Megx' to look like it was constructed out of giant LEGO bricks. Sure it's not as impressive as a train bridge actually made out of LEGO blocks, but I imagine train passengers wouldn't be too thrilled about that. Except me... / Continue →

    This is small gallery of Nintendo characters (plus Pac-Man) made out of Rubik's Cubes. Allegedly all the cubes were solved into the color combination they needed to be, although I suspect they printed colored stickers and MADE them what they needed to be. Of course that's jus... / Continue →

    This is gallery of Middle Earth's Moria faithfully recreated to scale in Minecraft. No clue how long it took, how many people it took, or what they could have accomplished if they were doing something more productive, all I know is it's pretty impressive and I couldn't have do... / Continue →

    This is a video of tetromino trickster John Schuepbach building a (relatively) color-accurate Luigi in a game of Tetris. He ends up clearing 499 lines in the process though because, well, it isn't an easy one. Now I'm not saying I could have done it in less, because God and I... / Continue →

    Two researchers are developing an algorithm designed specifically to 'de-pixelize' 8-bit (and 16-bit) video game graphics in real-time into smoother, more flowing ones. This. changes. everything. No, no it doesn't -- but it does change the amount of time I'll spend playing ... / Continue →

    These are all the original Street Fighter II characters as minimalized by artist Ashley Browning (Flickr user infinitecontinues). As you can see, they look like colored DNA strands. No? Alien shit stains? Whatever the case, there's a set of Mortal Kombat characters after t... / Continue →

    Hey guys, sorry for sporadic posting the past few days, I was busy having the best weekend of my life. Seriously. Of my life. This is the face of some chick that's all make-upped to look pixelated. It serves as a perfect example of how important high-resolution is, because ... / Continue →

    This is a Tetris themed dress created by Erin, the writer of A Dress A Day. I would totally wear it, and I don't even care who sees me, provided nobody sees me. Then, I'll take pictures of myself and leak them on the internet. I am such a pretty girl! Hit the jump for a s... / Continue →

    This is a video of 36 skateboarders playing a game of human Tetris on some hill in San Francisco while wearing giant neon shapes on their heads. Except it's not actually Tetris because not all of them are rocking tetrominoes. No, some of those mothers got damn pentominos on t... / Continue →

    This is a head rendered in Tetris blocks as imagined by Rihards Rozans. I have no idea if he used his own face for the model, but if he did, he's a pretty handsome guy. You know, in a Donkey Kong sort of way. Speaking of which: remember Candy Kong in Donkey Kong Country? I... / Continue →
