Z World Detroit: Zombie Apocalypse Theme Park

With the ever rising popularity of The Walking Dead it seems like people’s fascination with zombies continues to grow.  With that being said there are some folks in Detroit who want to use abandoned parts of the city to create a real life zombie experience and call it Z World Detroit.  People that come to the park will have to navigate through abandoned buildings, collect supplies and evade zombie attack.  I’m in…PICK ME!

Talk About Promotion: 150FT Tall Dark Knight Mural on the Side of a Building

This is the kind of thing you can only see in New York City where a group of artists/painters from Art FX Murals paints an ENORMOUS Dark Knight Promo for the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises on the side of a building.  The following pic shows the finished product, but if you click on the link you can see step by step how this massive painting was created.  It’s pretty amazing.  July 20th hurry up and get here!

Totally Unbelievable Treehouses

When I was a kid a few boards in a tree that gave even the slightest shelter against the elements was considered a treehouse and we left it to our imagination to fill in all the gaps.  These treehouses take the cake though, there are a few that I think we can all agree are more like treemansions.  Take a look!

The top image which depicts a treehouse resembling a Christmas decoration is known as the Yellow Treehouse and is located in New Zealand.  The treehouse that is suspended by scaffolding is now completed and is a Treehouse Hotel located in Sweden that for $600 dollars a night you can enjoy.

I’m particularly impressed aesthetically with the treehouse in the top left corner.  It reminds me of something out a JRR Tolkien novel.

If you ever wanted to live in the trees fulltime then there is a company called Blue Forest that can make your dreams come true.  The company specializes in producing fully functional and totally liveable treehouses.  The bottom photo is called the Canopy Cathedral and is located in Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.

The top photo is a more modern treehouse design while the two bottom photos illicit thoughts of treehouses from fairytales.

The top photo could be considered the mother of all treehouses.  Known as the Minister’s House it is considered the largest treehouse in the world, and is located in Tennessee.  The second tree, is also a multi-level treehouse and is part of Treehouse Village Resort in Kavieng, Papua New Guinea.   

One of these is not actually a real treehouse.  Can you guess which one it is?  If you guessed the one that is set up on top of the giant tree trunk then you would be right.  It is actually a Japanese restaurant that is a totally concrete made structure which customers get up to via elevator.  While not an actual treehouse it is very interesting nonetheless. 

Mario Bros Fishtank

Shoot I just get a fishtank and throw a cheap little cave structure in it and I feel like my fish thinks he’s living large.  This fish have the a geek swank set up though check it out.

Dry Erase Board Wall

Well after a bit of an extended break Geektrovert is back in force.  Lets kick it off with what the what….a dry erase board wall.  A company called IdeaPaint has created some kind of clear coat that you can paint on your wall and it will essentially turn it into the biggest dry erase board known to man.  Imagine you could write your grocery list all over your room or perhaps if you’re in an office you can keep track of stats or some such nonsense.  Needless to say I probably won’t be doing this anytime soon as I’m almost positive my friends would just erase any useful thing I wrote and replace it with a drawing of a giant penis….TMI….sorry sort of…not really.

A serene nighttime view of said hotel.

This could get very kinky if there were any scuba divers swimming about.  To each his own though.
