…Super Mario knows how to play chess?

Super Mario Chess

Though Super Mario didn’t arrive until more than 500 years after the invention of chess, the union of the two still seems like destiny.

The Super Mario chess set from USAopoly lets you battle for control of the Mushroom Kingdom with 32 hand-painted playing pieces, including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, Goombas, and more.

…It’s Things Thursday: PURE*ZENDER?


The Plush Department PURE*ZENDER Art PC is a design computer with a ceramic casing that looks even better than it performs. (And that’s not to say that it performs poorly, with its Intel Core 2 Duo processor and all the bells and whistles of a modern computer, but just that it looks so damn good!)

I am handmade I am handpainted.
I am urban, graffiti i am street.
I am moulded and shaped and glazed. I am unique.
There is no other like me.
Inside me is a powerful machine.
I will help you to stay in contact with your friends, to watch movies and play games. I can assist you with your work while you are listening to music. I will help you to find things, people, places, new experiences.
I am there for you when you need me and sleep while you don’t. I wake up on the push of a button and do for you what you ask me to.
I am not a television or record player or calculator i am all of that at the same time and more.
I am fast and silent and beautiful.

The art itself was done by Zender, a well known Dutch artist whose unique street style lends itself well to this tiny box, and other limited edition PURE* Art computers in the works are scheduled from Delft Blue, Mijn Schatje, Piet Boon, and Edward van Vliet.
