Nintendo has announced a new handheld gaming device, the 2DS, which will retail for $129.99. The 2DS disposes of the stereoscopic 3D that marked its more expensive predecessor, the 3DS, along with the clamshell design that defined previous Nintendo…
Remember the good old days of Duck Hunt on NES? Remember the Zapper? I didn’t have an NES, but one of my childhood friends did, and I will never forget the occasions we went to his house to play. Those were definitely good times.
But what if you can use the Zapper for an entirely different purpose? Say you had a Nintendo Zapper Laser – one that works?
Everyone dreams of visiting Paris at least once, don’t they? And when it comes to Paris, the Louvre is definitely at the top of people’s must-visit list. With all that is there to discover within the museum’s walls, it certainly is no surprise at all.
Nintendo seems to get the appeal of the Louvre, and the company has decided to jump on this by creating an audio guide for the 3DS.
Are you addicted to video games? As you lie in bed drifting off to sleep, do you see images or scenes of the latest video game that you have been playing? Do you try to figure out strategies that will work when you wake up and get to play again? (If you even stop playing to sleep, that is.)
If you’re that much into games (and probably even if you aren’t), you’ll be amused to see this fully functional urinal that was built from Nintendo games. It is real, and it works.
To be honest, I could have done without the colored liquid, but I guess they had to show that to prove that the contraption works.
Envious now? Don’t fret – you can make a urinal like this for yourself. All you need is tons of Nintendo games. Avid and long-time gamers will have no issues, but if you don’t have those old games, I am sure that you can find someone willing to give or sell them to you. Here’s a list of things you need:
- 40 Super Nintendo games
- Saw drill and drill bits
- Polyurethane spray and liquid
- Clear waterproof sealant
- 3/4 inch inlet spud
- 2 inch drain spud
- 1 sheet of Hardibacker
- 3 tubes of clear plumbing glue
- Urinal flush valve
- P trap
- Sand paper
- SNES screwdriver security bit
In the meantime, good luck finding 40 Super Nintendo games!
Logos have been used forever to make brands stick. There is no denying that the use of logos work, hence the high premium placed on brilliant logo designers. Now, something we may not think about a lot is the fact that while some logos are brilliant and help make the brand name stick, these logos may not actually be an accurate reflection of what the brand stands for.
Then again, logos are made to show companies in the best light possible, so stark reality may not be the first priority. Am I confusing you? How about we take a look at honest portrayals of some of the most popular logos that we see on a daily basis today? These logos were designed by the guys at Designers Couch ((Designers Couch)). Let the images speak for themselves!
Facebook = Procrastination
I only have one question: how many hours do you spend on Facebook everyday? I will not even dare to answer that for myself!
PlayStation = Procrastination
Nintendo = Nothing to Do
It’s still funny, but I am not sure “nothing to do” encompasses the concept of Nintendo. Then again, if I think about how people will get together on a boring night and end up playing Wii…could be wrong, though. What do you think?
McDonald’s = McDiabetes
Camel = Cancer
Long known fact. We can substitute Camel for any other cigarette brand, but it would not look as good, would it? Plus, it hasn’t stopped people from smoking for hundreds of years. Will this honest logo make any difference? For my sake, I hope so.
Absolut = Vomit
Funnily honest logo, but I feel that I have to clarify. Absolut only equates to Vomit if you drink a bottle on your own, straight, in a short period of time. I would be more agreeable to a similar idea if it were Jose Cuervo = something. It’s too horrible to think about.
So are these logos honest enough for you?
