Grandpa Plays Video Games…Wins “Coolest Grandpa Ever” Award

I stumbled upon this video of an 84 year old grandfather playing Call of Duty and Halo with his grandsons. It is cute, hilarious, and awesome. Check it out!

Man of Steel Official Trailer

I know I’m a little late on this but here is one of the official trailers for the new Superman flick .  This one features the voice of Kevin Costner who is playing Clark Kent’s adoptive father in the movie.  There is an alternate version as well with all the same footage but has the voice of Russell Crowe who is playing Jor-El Superman’s biological father.  Both are giving a bit of fatherly wisdom.

This clip doesn’t show much but I really think this movie is going to be far better than any of the other Superman movies that we’ve seen.  Superman has always been a little to apple pie for me and it looks like they’ve gone a more gritty and dark route this go around….and oh Henry Cavill (Superman) is SMOKIN HOT to any of the lady fans out there.  What do you all think?

Awesome 2D Sketches That Appear 3D

Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki is able to draw 2D images that present the illusion of being 3D through the use of two sketchbooks and some creative angles.  For even more of Hideyuki’s work check out his website, Facebook Page, and deviantART Page.  Enjoy!

Star Wars Alphabet

If you want to be the coolest parent probably ever in the universe you will teach your kids the alphabet with this.  When husband-and-wife designers Emma and Brandon Peat learned they were to be first time parents they decided that they wanted to start their child out on the right path and created this alphabet series comprised completely of  Star Wars characters.

Lay Your Head Down In Style

I’m a huge fan of pillows I only have a million of them on my own bed that by the time I wake up have found their way all over my floor, however I don’t have any nearly as cool as some of these pillows.  Check em out!  There’s even more if you click on the link.

For those with a slightly warped sense of humor there is the blood puddle pillow.

Make people think you’ve been hard at work by falling asleep on a book pillow.

For the lonely we’ve got this gem.

Mass Effect Hoodies

Here are a series of Mass Effect hoodies developed by DeviantARTist lupodirosso.  They designed these hoodies sent an email to Bioware and it seems Bioware has agreed to produce them on a limited test basis.  Of course I’m gonna get the Jack hoodie so I can get in touch with my inner badass.

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.
