If you grew up during the ’80s, then you know a thing or two about lenticular art. It popped up on just about everything back then, ranging from trading cards to cereal boxes. So this limited edition 3D Legend of Zelda Lenticular art is definitely a trip down memory lane in more ways than one. It features the many incarnations of Link over the years and it comes in a black wooden shadowbox frame, so you can hang it up right when you get it.

tiny snowman mold

Redditor Zombiechic80 printed this tiny snowman mold from a file at Thingiverse, scaled down to 25%. They meant to create an entire snowman army, but their Calvin & Hobbes dreams were foiled when they had to quit after four due to a lack of gloves. (It’s ok, the dinosaurs in fighter jets dream still lives.) So… tiny snowman barbershop quartet? I’d love to make one of these, but it would inevitably be at minimum 50% dirt and dog piss. Ah, New York.

You’ve probably seen those incredible 3D chalk drawings that people do on the ground, but there’s something about this wall art by graffiti artist Odeith that really catches the eye. The designs seem to float in mid air.

These fantastic renderings imagine an Adventure Time/”Batman mashup done as 3D figures. Artist Volatile-Vertex came up with the idea to celebrate Batman’s 75th anniversary and Bat-Finn has never looked better. In addition to Finn as Batman, there’s Jake as a gargoyle, Princess Bubblegum as Batgirl, the Ice King as Mr. Freeze, Gunter as the Penguin, King Worm as the Mad Hatter, and BMO as Alfred. Maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll actually make these figures because they’re simply perfect.

Oh, to be an astronaut–so much fun with zero gravity! NASA astronauts and amateur filmmakers Reid Wiseman and Steve Swanson (along with ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst) placed a GoPro camera inside a bubble of water that was floating freely on board the International Space Station (ISS). As you can guess, the resulting shots were pretty spectacular. The astronauts snapped some standard footage with the GoPro, but they also filmed the whole affair with a special 3D camera.

These incredible 3D images show a less cartoon-like Futurama and it’s nothing short of breathtaking. It’s the work of artist Alexey Zakharov who created a 3D version of the skyline from the opening sequence as well as a 3D version of the Planet Express ship using 3Dsmax, Nuke, Photoshop and After Effects. These are so good, you’ll wish they were sneak peeks of a Futurama movie.

Sure, it might not have that whole glowing blade thing happening, but this lightsaber will look darn impressive hanging from your belt. Redditor Passim made this 3D printed version of the iconic weapon and you can make your own just by downloading the files from Youmagine.

There’s also a more complex version called The Wookie Scalper with more fiddly bits to assemble that you can watch coming together after the break…

GIFs are fun enough, but turned into 3D images they’re mesmerizing. It’s actually not 3D, but just a trick of sorts that makes your eyes see it that way. The white vertical bars are used to separate the foreground and background so anything that stands out between them, like a sonic screwdriver or a soaring arrow, looks like it’s coming right for you.

These very realistic 3D illustrations of Pokémon characters were done by Japanese artist Yuuki Morita. He made the images using Maya and Zbrush design software and they look just incredible!

It’s been seven years of work, but game designer Drew Rechner has recreated Baldur’s Gate in 3D as Baldur’s Gate: Reloaded. The mod is the entirety of the game including the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion. Rechner worked on the project with programmer Shallina and says it helped him get into the game industry where he worked at TimeGate Studios until he was let go when they shut down.

In order to play you’ll need Neverwinter Nights 2 and the Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir expansions. Once you’ve got those installed you can download the mod and you’re ready to play.
