8 bit


The 8-bit pixel style is awesome for geek gear, and Etsy shop The Pixel Bar even lets you create your own designs.

After you select a bag type (messenger or backpack) you can request your favorite characters from Marvel to Disney to Minecraft to be pixelated in silicon blocks which are affixed to the silicon panel.

Or you can create your own character using a template of the purchased bag. The template will let you place each pixel on the board and tally up how many blocks you will need to purchase. You could have a different design to match your fandom every week.

Check out some bag styles and pixel designs below.

8 bit socks

Plain white socks are boring, and these designs from Sammy Icon are the opposite of that. They feature the bright colors of 8-bit video games like Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros, and Pac-Man. The company already is in the sock business, but they’ve got a Kickstarter project to launch this new line.

If a Doctor Who game like this existed, I’d play the heck out of it and hope someone made a TARDIS shaped console to go with it. Since that’s not a reality just yet, this t-shirt is a fine substitute. Wearing a tee like this just might make you walk around all day with an 1980s video game version of the the Who theme song playing your head.
