    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 →

    This is a small series of Pokemon (Charizard, Blastoise and Venusaur) by artist Yuuki Morita that have been rendered realistically using 3-D animation/modeling programs Maya and ZBrush. If you had to choose one, which one would you pick? I would pick you. Plus I would pick y... / Continue →

    These are Spock socks. Allegedly they're a real, officially licensed product, but I'm always skeptical when the only picture available is a rendering and not an actual photo. Is it because they don't exist or because they look even shittier in real life? I wore socks with sa... / Continue →

    Because fact-checking is for people who don't have GOOD GUT INSTINCTS, a Danish news station recently displayed a rendering of Damascus from Assassin's Creed instead of the current Damascus skyline like they intended. I've since been fired from my position as head picture find... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Darth Vader meditation chamber fireplace designed by Dave Delisle. It can be opened and closed to adjust the room temperature or kept closed when not in use. Of course it can't REALLY do anything because it's just a computer rendering and not a real thi... / Continue →

    This is a rendering of Wall-E and EVE reimagined as robots you wouldn't want to f*** with by DeviantARTist SgtHK (aka Rafael Benedicto). Wall-E and EVE in their natural forms? I could take them both on wearing nothing but a loincloth and wielding a curtain rod. Wow, referenc... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D animation called Super Modern Mario Bros. featuring the first level from the original game 'modernized'. It's cute enough to spend a minute watching. Two minutes? I don't know, can't say I would have made it to the end of two minutes without skipping ahead. Of... / Continue →

    This is a TARDIS themed engagement ring designed by Tumblr user Pathetic Paripatetic. Now before all you Dr. Who fangirls start soliciting proposals, it's just a rendering. Granted I suppose you could actually get one made, but then your man would miss out on the opportunity t... / Continue →

    This are some conceptual lightsaber rolling papers imagined by Geekologie Reader Matt H. I don't know if you can tell by the rendering, but they aren't real. They ARE clever though. this is...a mock up ive made of star wars themed rolling papers that look like lightsabers. t... / Continue →

    Humans still alive in 50-million years, LOL. Conceptualized by speculative zoologist Dougal Dixon in the early 80's and published in Omni magazine, these are renderings of what Dixon believes humans might look like after 50-million years of evolution. There's an another versi... / Continue →

    No, I don't wanna wrestle. This is a rendering of a "lifelike" Doctor Zoidberg created by artist Jared Krichevsky. If the doctor would actually look like this in real life is anybody's guess, but you back over him with my truck and I'll start melting butter in the bathtub jus... / Continue →

    Sweet rocks bro. This is an 8-minute video of Euclideon CEO Bruce Robert Dell (NOT Bruce Wayne Acer) explaining his company's 'Unlimited Detail Real-Time Rendering Technology', that's allegedly 100,000x more detailed than current polygon-based computer graphics. According to ... / Continue →

    First two robot posts in a row, now two LEGO ones. Looks like it's turning into a 2-for-Tuesday, folks! No -- just a beautiful day in the neighborhood? Then why do I hear screaming and gunshots? *locking door* This is a gallery of this summer's blockbuster movie posters wi... / Continue →

    This is a video of what it might be like to play Super Mario in real life. It's pretty cheesy and looks like it may have been rendered as somebody's first school project in 3-D modeling. I GIVE IT A C. Just sayin', the scale is way off. Also, I don't remember any handguns i... / Continue →

    This is a demo reel of some of the features included in the new Unreal 3 gaming platform that will be available to developers. It's basically 3:00 of Unreal tooting their own ultra-realistic looking horn. Admittedly, some of the stuff does look pretty unreal. "For the love o... / Continue →

    These are the posters for the ten Oscar nominees for best picture recreated LEGO-style. This is only two here though, so hit the jump to see the other eight. They're all pretty good. Unless you're pissed they're not actually made with LEGO pieces, in which case I'M SORRY. B... / Continue →

    Can you say YOUR armed forces' supercomputer was built entirely out of gaming consoles by the same company who invented the Walkman? I think not! Enter the Air Force's 1,760 Playstation 3 supercomputer, allegedly the 33rd largest supercomputer IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.* Yes, t... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile full-body shot HERE. This is the latest rendering of what scientists believe the t-rex actually looked like. As you can see (unless you've got your eyes closed and are listening to your computer read this in a robot voice because you're lazy), the sexy son of... / Continue →

    This is a little chart showing what the same rock would look like rendered in twenty different video games. For reference, pedra normal means normal rock in Portuguese and isn't the name of a video game. Or if it is, the most boring game ever. Move over, Super Watch Grass Gr... / Continue →

    Um, yeah, shoes designed to look like the podiatric lovechild of a Lamborghini police car and stiletto heels. That's something. Something I'll pay you $200 to wear and Riverdance on my nuts. We live in an explosive time for fashion. Bright lights, low brow, express yourself.... / Continue →
