Not that Japan doesn’t have enough monsters, but the Water Dragon hologram above was filmed in Tokyo Bay. It’s actually part of a Sony ad campaign for The Water Horse movie.
We’re totally digging these fantastic lightpainting photos by artist Andy Hill, who makes and sells retro sci-fi Saucerbots from LED lights, leftover CDs, DVDs and hard drive platters.
Art director and 3D animator Emmett Feldman’s Interstellar Sugar is fantastic in monochrome; the visual style seems perfect for a remake of the classic shooter Asteroids.
Citylight is a trippy, sci-fi meets aurora borealis meets urban graffiti wallpaper by Polish graphic designer Kamil Kotarba. Click here to download the wallpaper (it’s a RAR file).
These sweet limited edition Change The Thought posters by Chris Cox have a 70s/retro style; they’re printed on thick 100 lb. A3 paper and are signed and numbered by the artist.
On display at the BMW Welt conference hall in Munich, this undulating kinetic sculpture is composed of 714 steel balls suspended on strings; it gets wild about 50 seconds in.
Anyone with a camera that can adjust shutter speeds has goofed around with lighting effects at one time or another; Lightmark elevates this to the level of high art.
Available September 1, these Boosted Tin Can Speakers add a bit of style to your desktop; the cans feature art from artists Mint, Serf and Mainframe; they’re battery powered.
Symmetry Explorer is a Flickr mashup that takes images (based on any search term) and arbitrarily reflects them on the fly. Above is our super bendy MacBook Air.
Situated in Terminal 5 of London’s Heathrow Airport, Cloud is a kinetic sculpture with 4,638 flip dots. They’re so mesmerizing that folks are liable to miss their flights.
Simultaneously scary yet enlightening, Jess Bachman’s revealing Death and Taxes poster for 2009 shows ever more accurately and beautifully where US tax payer dollars go.
The Singing Ringing Tree is a sculpture in northwest England whose numerous tubes create a strange, haunting sound that would be quite at home in a sci-fi horror flick.
We’re not sure what The Elano is or what story it has to tell, but it sure as heck makes a cool tshirt. Designed by Rayi Wicaksono of Indonesia, you can see more of his work at deviantART.
Juxtaposition has never been quite as fun or geeky as these photos of various Star Trek and Star Wars fans. They’re photographed by Steve Schofield; PS: there’s a Wookie in the kitchen.
It’s over a year old but we’re still digging this motion graphics reel by The Ronin. It’s a motion graphics and design studio based in England, founded in May 2000 by Rob Chiu.
Dizel&Sate mixes graphic urban and photorealistic art to stunning effect; they sell everything from limited edition posters and t-shirts to jaw-dropping wallprints (sold by the square meter).
Using nothing more than cardboard and glue, Chris Gilmour creates life-size replicas of familiar objects. We’re amazed at the complexity of some of his pieces, including the trike (above).
It looks like a primitive Borg Cube, but we’re sure the Citizen Cube won’t be doing any assimilating: it’s the work of artist Brenda Guyton, who creates sculptures from found computer parts.
Inspired by retro memorabilia of the 80s, Jonathan Ball crafted this super cool Ms. Pac-Man poster with Blender. It’s the same open-source package used for Big Buck Bunny.

Available at Vladstudio.com, Planet Earth Inversed is one of those wallpapers that has you poring over the creative details. The neutral color scheme is easy on the eyes, too.

Rainbow-colored shirts aren’t our thing (tye dye gives us headaches); thankfully, White Bread’s Rainbows tee is blue and shades of grey. Thumbs up for the hand-drawn look.
Artist Bekijk Michael Karcz’s creepy manipulated photos are some of the best we’ve seen. His mastery of composition and use of atmosphere borders on supernatural.
PatternTap.com is a boon to web designers; it compiles examples of common website parts (borders, comments, backgrounds). It’s a great place to get ideas and inspiration.
Springfield Punx is a pet project of artist Dean Fraser; he does an amazing job creating Simpsons styled versions of popular superheroes and celebs. Our fave: The Dark Knight‘s Joker.
