Not everyone has the time to painstakingly brew the perfect cup of coffee each morning. That’s why simple capsule coffee machines like Nespresso have become so popular. And if you’re embarrassed at taking a shortcut for your morning brew, you can distract your judgemental coffee snob friends with this brilliant Donkey Kong-inspired Nespresso capsule rack.
If when you close your eyes each night in bed you see visions of pixelated arcade apes performing game-like quests, you can be sure you are a true gamer at heart. And now that we’ve cleared that up, you might as well embrace it, and indulge yourself with a little Donkey Kong-inspired interior decor.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re totally blown away by Photobucket user gpinzone’s retro gaming-themed bathroom that incorporates elements from Super Mario, Donkey Kong and Pac-Man. We just can’t help but feel they missed a fantastic opportunity to turn the throne into a functional warp pipe that sucks down more than just plumbers.
Colombian artists Andres Barragan and Miss Vynilos have painstakingly tiled the interior of a shower to depict scenes from Donkey Kong Junior.
Lego. Mindstorms RCX. Donkey Kong. Rolling barrels. Donkey Kong throws rolling barrels. Mario jumps. And jumps. And jumps. All synchronised. Dan Kressin even generated the game start tune with Lego.

There isn’t any monochrome character love from the old days proper, but it is quite an extensive time line nonetheless, which culminates in the modern day incarnations of our beloved superheroes. Things we have learnt from the image include the fact that Donkey Kong once had breasts bigger than Pamela, Link has been know to walk about without his hat and Mario hasn’t always had enough pixels for a well defined mustache. It is all rather shocking stuff; brace yourself and jump in for the money shot. [Fubiz via Notcot]
The Computer Game Museum in Berlin has accomplished two things to make fanboys, such as ourselves, very moist. Firstly, they have created a museum dedicated to computer games and secondly, the institution has produced a mahoosive reconstruction of the classic Donkey Kong game using scaffolding. That is large. Lap it up fellow fanboys, lap it up. Oh, imagine how burly that large cardboard Donkey Kong would be—I wish he’d pick me up and hold me in his muscular primate arms… [UrbanRetroLifestyle]
