…The Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker lets you live your dreams?

Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker

Forget air guitar and rock out for real with the Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker, a belt buckle that plays music out of the included amplifier when you strum a pick over it.

The Air Guitar Rocker comes with 10 “signature riffs to jam to”, or you can pick up the Heavy Metal or 80’s Rock Encore Packs to keep the party going with new tunes and more riffs.

It might not make you any better at the real guitar, but who said having a skill was any fun anyways?

…Thunder Panda is a papercraft pro?

Thunder Panda Papercraft

If you like the idea of papercraft, but don’t have the skills necessary to pull off some of the more advanced projects, then check out Eric Wiryanta (aka Thunder Panda)’s collection of papercraft toys.

Each of the cute little figures is easy to make, but the results are still rather impressive, so you’ll have an army of pugs, robots and space wanderers adorning your desk before you know it.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Pencil Rebel?

Pencil Rebel

Grzegorz Kozakiewicz’s Pencil Rebel is made with “Interactive Mixed Media Web Design”, which basically means that he takes cardboard, clay, and whatever else he can find lying around the house and turns it into a website.

Forget Web 2.0; this is Web 0.5, but it’s fantastic, and it shows what’s possible with a ton of imagination, a fair amount of skill with an X-acto knife, and lots and lots of patience.

The goal is to work your way through the puzzle, finding places and secrets along the way, but the journey is definitely greater than the goal, and you’ll enjoy the neat little touches that he added in along the way.

…The Fail Whale has a story to tell?

Fail Whale

How did Yiying Lu’s “Fail Whale” go from an unfortunate placeholder to an entire social media brand?

As with most things on the Internet, it was a little bit of skill mixed with a whole lot of luck, and some randomness thrown in for good measure.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Fail Whale phenomenon, or if you’d like to know a little more about the behemoth beast, then check out ReadWriteWeb’s “The Story of the Fail Whale” and see what you’ve been missing.

…Niko Bellic has been untooned?

Niko Bellic

Niko Bellic is a pretty realistic character in Grand Theft Auto IV to begin with, so Pixeloo’s latest untoon isn’t quite as impressive as the last few, but regardless, he’s got more skill in his little pinky than I have in the entire Photoshop part of my brain, so check out his latest work and prepare to be amazed once again.
