LEGO Mindstorm T-Shirt Folding Machine

The nerd level of both of these videos are pretty intense. So, proceed and watch with caution.

Despite both of these T-Shirt “folding machines” not being the most parsimonious way of folding a T-Shirt, you’ve got to admit that the creation of a such a device is pretty damn cool. Especially when you consider that they were built with LEGO pieces. Now would I ever get around to making such a thing? Probably not.

By the way, someone should inform Sheldon Cooper about this device. Something tells me that he would dig it.

And for you strange people who swear that K’NEX is superior to LEGO, I’ve got a video for you too:

Sheldon Shirts Collection (Big Bang Theory)

I don’t watch the Big Bang Theory religiously (although I should), but I have seen my fair share of episodes. If you’re a fan of the show and you love tees then you’ll most likely have noticed Sheldon’s obsession with geeky, science-y, and comic book type T-Shirts. He must have large closet space to hold his wares.

One enterprising Big Bang Theory fan has assembled a very unique T-Shirt site. The site SheldonShirts.com is a chronicle of each of the nerdy shirts that Sheldon has worn on the Big Bang Theory. They have a fairly sizeable collection and they link to the shirts if they are still available for sale. Pretty neat idea in a I wish I had thought of that sort of way!

“You’ve reached T-shirt Nerdvana! Here at SheldonShirts.com, we’ve collected all the best t-shirts worn by Sheldon and Leonard on The Big Bang Theory, plus Howard’s belt buckles, some shirts we think Sheldon and Leonard should wear, cool stuff seen on the show (Periodic Table shower curtain, anyone?), some of our favorite Sheldon quotes and lots more. Find out where to buy your favorite tee shirts!”

Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock

Anyone here fans of Big Bang Theory? If so, you need to check out this T-Shirt from ThinkGeek.com. Playing Jan Ken Po (Japanese name of Rock Paper Scissors) is a playground stable for any kid that grows up in Hawaii. I remember fierce Jan Ken Po battles with my elementary school buddies – so intense! Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock is a version of Jan Ken Po that was invented by Sam Kass and Karen Bryla, and was featured on an episode of CBS’s hit show, Big Bang Theory. I’ve included the hilarious bit from the episode below for you to chuckle at. You can pick up this shirt from ThinkGeek for $15.99!

And just in case you were wondering how to play this version of Rock Paper Scissors, well, here you go:
