Chinese Space Babies Are Go!

October 27th, 2010 by frankie23

In the 80s, China looked upon the superpowers with a combination of fear and envy, desperately wishing to be as modern and successful as their space-faring rivals. Chinese Posters shows us the results of this, fanciful images showing small children and cute animals soaring the skies in improbably adorable spacecraft, carrying toys and gifts for all, being smiled upon by the gods on the Bridge of Haaven. Hit the jump for two more cutely bizarre images.

Steampunk neckties!

Full windsor, if you please…

It’s really not fair. These lovely neckties were posted to Etsy just yesterday, and they’re already sold out! It’s no surprise though, really; just look at them! Absolutely beautiful. It’s just what I need to go with my bowler and suspenders, too!

Steampunk Monitor Mod

This… this is just a thing of beauty. I mean, its a steampunk LCD monitor. What more does one have to say? Now that I’ve seen this, all I can do is stare at my boring, run-of-the-mill PC screen with nothing but disdain. Seriously, it’s that fucking cool. I won’t even get into the fact that the creator has a matching keyboard; my heart just can’t take the lust.
