Now that shoe looks pretty flippin’ sweet.

Milan Miladinov, a London-based design student, made this one-of-a-kind, 100 percent chocolate Nike Air Max 90 as an homage to the iconic shoe on its 25th anniversary. Miladinov made the shoe by creating a silicon mold of a Nike Air Max 90, then he painted the inside of the mold to capture all of the details before pouring the bulk of the liquid chocolate. After 15 hours, this was the result.

Exploding TARDIS Stonehenge Square

These TARDIS cookies hold a fun surprise inside. The Kitchen Overlord used two cookies sandwiched together with icing to create a little pocket. Inside that pocket are appropriately nerdy sprinkles from Geeky Hostess. She used lightning bolts, steampunk gears, and some blue and yellow sugar sprinkles that spill out when the TARDIS is deliciously damaged.

Because you can’t go five minutes without using your phone, Kentucky Fried Chicken chains in Germany came up with a wacky techno-marketing gimmick that involved lining serving trays with disposable Bluetooth keyboards. Yep.

The deal here was that you could sync the keyboard (pictured above) with your phone, and then type away while you’re snacking on greasy chicken. Presumably, this would help to keep your screen clean (though wouldn’t you still have to touch your phone to wake it up or switch apps?).

It seems stupid, but stupidity sells. Apparently, the week-long campaign was so successful that all of the customers who received one felt compelled to take the keyboard home.

Fried food is tasty and it can be fun when it’s done in interesting shapes, but not every shape is a good idea. What you’re looking at here are pork cutlets shaped like Pikachu. They are sold in street stalls in Korea, ready to eat, and can even be ordered in jumbo packs to eat at home. Some people think they’re cute, but others are a bit bothered by the idea of biting off Pikachu’s head. Hey, kids do it to chocolate rabbits every Easter so Pikachu should be fair game.

Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne student Anne-Sophie Bazard created a short film called Eat Me. It features people eating with a pair of chopsticks that have a GoPro camera attached to one end. The idea was to showcase Chinese cuisine and the many ways you can use a pair of chopsticks to deliver tasty Chinese treats to your mouth.

the goblin kitchen

Short films have become a great way for geeky film makers to hone their craft and create new and interesting projects. Player Piano likes to put their own spin on film/tv/videogame themes and have partnered with The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball to create ‘The Goblin Kitchen’ in Jim Henson style.

Its definitely worth a look and you may even recognize some familiar faces. Check out the video after the break.

cake

The Weeping Angels are one of the more terrifying creatures in the Doctor Who universe, but everyone knows their secret at this point. Unfortunately, they’ve adapted and started hiding in cake. How can you possibly resist taking your eyes off the angel to take a bite?

Indeed, The Kitchen Overlord baked a cake with the silhouette of a Weeping Angle hidden inside.

It’s just one of the recipes you can find in her cookbook, Dining With the Doctor: Regenerated. It’s currently up for funding on kickstarter where a pledge of $29 will get you all the Whovian recipes you can handle.

Starting this Fall, Indiana Jones fans will have a new place to grab a bite and have a drink at Walt Disney World Resort. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.

Jock Lindsay, as you may recall, was Indy’s intrepid pilot. So look for aviation-themed cocktails and food like the “Hovito Mojito”, the “Air Pirates Everything Pretzels” and “Rolling Boulder Meatballs”. Aviation decor, vintage travel posters and even a docked steamboat are part of the fun. And look out for nods to Lindsay’s pet snake Reggie.

Based on the concept art, I’d definitely like to swing by some time. Still, it’s not exactly what I would expect for an Indiana Jones-themed restaurant. Seems like they could have gone much bigger with this.

See concept art of the interior after the break.
