Back when I was a young child, this is what computers looked like. I was in high school before they started showing up at everyone’s house. The incredible thing is, that phone in your pocket probably has more computing power and storage than this entire room (or one that this room represents, let’s face it this one is full of plastic toys). A totally retro build by Jalex.
I love the retro-future look of this dashing young lady by builder Kingmarshy. Meet Miss Utopia, pioneer of the future, exploring the solar system with her trusty robotic companion, GD-801. They both look ready for adventure, and for the cover of a classic 50's sci-fi pulp novel or movie poster. Wherever it is, I want to follow that adventure.
While everyone is drooling over the new LEGO Bugatti Chiron Technic set builder _Pixeljunkie_ has decided to go more retro, way more retro. This is a 1928 Bugatti Type 37A, and it's beautiful. There's a fair amount of custom chrome on her, and it really pops. And an old garage is the perfect setting.
While I've never really ridden a motorcycle (unless you count my dad's Trail50, I don't) I've always admired the aesthetics of them, especially vintage ones. This retro styled beast from redfern1950s2 hits all the marks for me, especially when equipped with a side car, it's just beautiful.
It takes one look at a classic Coca-Cola machine, a vintage radio or even a gas pump to see how we as humans used to really care about aesthetics. While modern design can be nice, a truly beautiful item is rare these days, and always celebrated, which makes me wonder why there isn't more beautiful stuff? Builder Norton74 gets it, and has crafted this vintage gas pump, which served a simple purpose, and looked good doing it.
We blogged Chris McVeigh's retro fridge when it premiered way back in 2014. Ever since then he's been thinking about adding a matching range, and it's finally here! While I'm not sure these appliances would fit in to my existing kitchen, I'm really not opposed to redoing the whole thing around them (and we could get rid of these universally hated, tiled countertops!)
