Why 2014 Will Be the Year of LEGO

It’s always a little baffling to see how far LEGO has come since we were kids. As if being the go-to building block for upwards of three generations isn’t enough, LEGO has recently been expanding very VERY far beyond the bricks. Marvel and DC licenses?

Upcycled Computer Parts Combine Art and Function

If you think your computer is beautiful on the outside, you should see the inner workings. Tiny intricate metal paths criss-cross through fields of green, orange and blue. Tiny numbers and letters hint at the miniature universe trying to communicate with those who will listen. Nothing creates the visual impact of how infinitely small technology […]

Nerdy Maternity Tees

There seem to be two types of maternity clothes styles: cover it up or scream it out loud. While ‘cover it up’ is probably appropriate most of the time, if we cared about appropriate we wouldn’t plunk down our hard earned cash on things like Batman wallets or Star Trek undies.
