Pierre Cerveau Imagines What the iPhone Would Have Looked Like if Jobs Made It In the 80’s Instead

Remember the gigantic Zack Morris cell phone of the early 90’s? Apple would never create something so hideous. But what if Steve Jobs had visualized the iPhone 20 years earlier? The Macintosh Phone is what we would have had. Pierre Cerveau designs the concept of this retro awesomeness along with ads that might have lined the billboards of 80’s NYC. With a rotary phone dial, bulky pixelated screen, and 512kb of space, this would have been hipper than hipsters.

This is How Math Geeks Eat Their Bagels

Much like a Reeses cup, there is no wrong way to eat a bagel, unless you’re gluten intolerant. But there is a more mathematically sensible way to create more surface area for your cream cheese, unless you’re lactose intolerant. Although I suppose this math nerd fun would also work on Gluten-free bagels with dairy-free cream cheese. So geek out with Stony Brook University research professor George W. Hart as he shares a mathematically correct bagel cutting guide that would make your geometry and trigonometry teachers proud.

Gorgeous Geeky Art with An Electronic Beat

If there is one theme that pervades the fantastic artwork of painter Aaron Jasinski, it’s music. It’s not too surprising when you consider that he not only grew up surrounded by his family of musicians, but he now mixes some very excellent electronic beats himself — from ambient to dubstep. His works hit as many high notes as his music, with loads of pop culture references mingling with nostalgia, social commentary and even whimsical creatures… all rendered with what he calls a “Technicolor” palette. Each work seems to tell a complete story, easily standing on its own and drawing us in to his beautiful, if not geeky world.

Expressions Of Love With A Nerdy Twist

Now here are some posters to warm the heart of any proud nerd! Nicole Martinez, an illustrator, art director and graphic designer from Boston says this of the inspiration behind the prints:

“My boyfriend and I came up with the phrase ‘nerdy dirty’ a while ago because we would say such nerdy things when we were trying to be romantic,” says Nicole. “So when I got the urge to design something sweet I could only think of things like ‘Aorta tell you how much I love you.’ Hence, the Nerdy Dirty poster series was born.”
