Nerdy Bits: Batgirl and Robin Cosplay, Difinitive Zelda Time Line, Futurama’s Dr. Zoidberg Skyrim MOD, Wicked Pissah Batman-Inspired Kevlar Gauntlet and MOAR
Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.
Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In its 25-years of existence spanning 16 games, it’s ridiculous to keep track of what the douche happened in the Zelda universe. Here’s Nintendo to explain it all with a handy dandy infographic.
The Batman-Inspired Kevlar Gauntlet Is “Both An iPhone Dock And Wearable Body Armor”. The creators are hoping that the BodyGuard Armored Gauntlet will help save lives as it’s being marketed towards law enforcement and homeland security agents. Bah! Every real-life super hero will totally don these for their nightly prowls. (SlashFilm)
Here’s a new image of Nicholas Hoult as Jack in Bryan Singer’s upcoming re-imagined fantasy retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk in Jack the Giant Killer. (YouBentMyWookie)
I would say that one does not simply walk into a tattoo shop and ask for a huge Eye of Sauron that covers the whole back, but this nerd went and did it. Good for him, I guess. I feel terrible for the unfortunate souls who gotta look at this thing should this guy expose his one eyed monster at the beach. (NeatoRama)
Speaking of Lord of the Rings, here is some ridiculously awesome metal-crafted Nazgul armor. (g33kpron)
If there was ever a company who could call themselves the nerd superstore, it would be Think Geek. It’s nerdy, geeky stuff brought to you by nerdy, geeky folks. Anyway, I just check their “whats new” section and saw 3 items I felt worth sharing: Portal 2 Aperture Science iPad sleeve, Dead Space Plasma Cutter and Edible dried zombie skin. Maybe, you the fan, will buy these for me, or maybe Thinkgeek will appreciate the mention and send to us for free *wink wink*.
The 80s: When everything sounded like a good idea at the time.
This was an original song and music video that was part of the internal blooper reel for the 1987 TV show “Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future”. It’s seizure-inducing just like the show. (ToplessRobot)
Futurama’s Dr. Zoidberg Mudcrab Vs. Spiderman Skyrim battle.
I used to be a Zoid-crab, then I took an arrow to the knee. (ObviousWinner)
