Slow afternoon? make pixel art with Rubik's cubes

Got a lot of time, several hundred Rubik’s cubes and a brain somewhere midway up the autistic spectrum?

Make pixel art with them girls, what are you waiting for? If you’re short on inspiration check out these phenomenal masterpieces by Irish artist John Quigley.

Pixel art is laying out designs pixel by pixel to create a retro digital mosaic look – is an established art form. Rubik cube pixel art is the hard core intellectual end. The brain power needed to get one Rubik cube to the correct formation is pretty intense, that required to get 2,622 Rubik’s cubes to the correct formation so that you can combine them together to form a portrait of Barack Obama is mind-boggling to even think about.

London Transport does geek chic

The range includes, yes, model buses and – I love this – sofa coverings in the same old retro fabric that used to adorn the seats of London buses.

People in London are probably sick of buses, Brits outside London are probably sick of hearing about London, but I have a hunch this will go down well in Japan. They’d probably match it with ribbons and Pikachu and it will look great.

All items available from They can be purchased from www.ltmuseum.co.uk or from London Transport Museum’s shop in Covent Garden, London.

10 geekiest tattoos

Bad girls have them, geek girls can have them too: and if you’re going to get a tattoo, why not use it to show off your knowledge of computer coding or geek culture?
I didn’t include any tattoos which involve the Apple logo. Tempting, but a macbook is always going to be slimmer and less hairy than you – too hard to compete.

From a join-the-dots giraffe to making your head all web 2.0, here’s a selection of some of the geekiest skin art the world wide web has to offer.
