    Looks like a painting, right? Well it's not, it's a 3-D rendering of Benczúr Gyula's 1885 painting Budavár visszavétele created by 3-D artist Farkas Zsolt with over 8.5-million polygons. That is a lot of polygons. Polly want a cracker? Polly want a -- wait, where'd she go? ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, actually legible version HERE. This is the map of the internet cartographered by DeviantARTist JaySimons. I'm sure there's something to learn by looking at it, I just didn't pick up on any of it. Probably because I started daydreaming about how cool it would be... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE, but be sure to check out the artist's DeviantART page for a giant 5056 x 3576px version that will melt your face off like you fell asleep with your head in a pizza oven. This is the entire cast of Futurama in a single image as compiled by DeviantAR... / Continue →

    Remember that 150,000-piece LEGO Battle of Helm's Deep that was nearing completion? Well it's finally crossed the finish line, and this is it. With over 1,700 minifigs alone, it's sure to be one of LEGO's most expensive sets ever offered. *whispering* Oh, they're not actual... / Continue →

    Note: Obviously if this picture were a sci-fi spaceship it would be smaller than a breadbox, click HERE for the full-res poster. Also, keep in mind one pixel = 10 meters, so any ship smaller than that probably didn't make the cut. This is a visual size comparison of sci-fi fr... / Continue →

    This is The Pixel Painter, a cute/sweet/heartwarming documentary about Hal Lasko, a 97-year old retired graphic designer who's partially blind and spends up to 10-hours a day creating beautiful art pieces in Microsoft Paint, pixel by pixel. When I retire? I'm not creating an... / Continue →

    This is the half-scale replica of Vader's TIE Fighter built by a group of Germans for Star Wars Celebration Europe. It took over 1,000 man hours and $20,000 to build. And can you think of any better use for 1,000 man hours and $20,000? Because I can't. You think with 2,000 ... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile stop motion video featuring Link and Black Rock Shooter doing battle against the Knife Lord. The video consists of over 4,000 individual photos and took an entire month to shoot. My online dating profile video? That took like ten minutes to shoot and may... / Continue →

    This is the opening theme to Game of Thrones loosely recreated in Minecraft by the folks over at WesterosCraft (who brought us those insanely detailed Game of Thrones Minecraft cities). Truthfully, it's mostly just a tour of a Minecraft Kings Landing with a couple of the same ... / Continue →

    This is a video tour of the Jurassic Park that Youtuber Josh Collin spent four months recreating in Minecraft, presumably to try and prove he's a bigger dinosaur fan than me. *tears off shirt to reveal 'DINOS ONLY' tramp stamp* Better luck next time, Josh. Hit the jump for t... / Continue →

    Note: No screencap is really going to do the video justice, so just watch it. If you don't like it I'll let you come to my house and punch me but you've never seen me before so I will be giving you my roommate's description. This is a super impressive video game themed stop m... / Continue →

    This is the giant Link bead sprite created by Redditor BoxMacLeod (links to a gallery of even more of his work). It is most impressive. I used to be into Perler beads myself but I'd always iron them for too long and the whole damn thing would melt into a blob. I suck at froz... / Continue →

    Note: Decent sized version of the finished product HERE, but check out the artist's DeviantART page for a giant one. DeviantARTist Elemental79 remastered this iconic 320x240 Doom screenshot into a 9,600x7,211 resolution version spanning seven Photoshop files. For reference, t... / Continue →

    Pokemon 3D is a fan effort to recreate Pokemon in a 3D environment. It was built from scratch and is moddable so if you want to make all the Pokemon look like your friends so you can watch them battle it out to the death, you can. You want to make all the trees look like nake... / Continue →

    This is a music video made for Queen's iconic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' using nothing but appropriately timed cutscenes from Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. It was made by reader Ben who had this fascinating tidbit to share: "I spent 18 hours playing the game, and 30 hours editing,... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile time-lapse video after the jump. This is a giant cross-stitch lovingly created by Linda (aka Esponsas) featuring the entire first generation of Pokemon. Man, so many familiar faces in the bunch. Like, uh, Dweezle, and...Tam-Tam? You got me, I'm more of a Yu... / Continue →

    I know it's hard to tell from the picture, but the full model is actually over 7-feet long (for comparison, my penis is only two-and-a-half). That's a big ship. The 135-pound replica was built by LEGOmaniac Adrian Drake over 475-hours spanning 21-months and using nearly 70,00... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen them, this is a series of ridiculously impressive Westeros locations faithfully recreated in Minecraft. I know, they've already been out for like a week now, but what can I say, I like being late to the party. Think of me as like, the fashionable l... / Continue →

    Happy Labor Day everyone, a holiday celebrated by doing the exact opposite of what is was named for. Kind of like how my friends always celebrate my birthday by all going out without me. I'm going to kill them. Anyways, I hope everybody's enjoying the long weekend and for th... / Continue →
