Amazing Geek Art: This is the Droid We’re Looking For

antique R2D2 sculptureThis is just amazing. Amoebabloke built an antique-style R2D2 out of a wooden barrel and lots of amazingly shaped and crafted metal parts. I can’t pretend to know how he did it, or even begin to do justice to the amount of work it must have taken, but I love the result! He hopes to sell it to someone who will truly appreciate it, so if you’re a real R2D2-phile, get your money ready. This one of a kind sculpture deserves a good home. Go see the antique d2 project 8 by ~amoebabloke on deviantART.

Here’s my elf dance. Let’s see yours!

You’ve probably seen the OfficeMax commercials for Elf Yourself. It’s a web application that lets you upload your own photo, crop it to fit an elf hat, and then watch yourself do an elf dance with up to three of your friends. Silly, but so fun! I did one with my own face first, and then I made one with my kids (above). Aren’t they cute?!

I’ve heard that people without high speed connections aren’t able to enjoy the show, so keep that in mind. You can see my elf dance here, or make your own. [Edit: Sorry, but the ElfYourself service must have been just for the holidays. It doesn’t work anymore, but it was fun while it lasted!]
