There is a lot of art out there — posters, prints, objects — that try to express what you find beautiful in science fiction, Japanese anime, video games, and all the things you love to geek out on.

But have you checked out the amazing collection of imagery at Displate?

These are beautiful, imagined images grabbed right out of your favorite alternate words. They are renderings of the amazing technologies we use every day. They are seriously cool.

Here is just a small sample of the metal-print art you will have to own.

The video games you play happen in stunningly beautiful worlds. Part of the reason you play them is to exist in an imagined universe built by artists with impressive skill and imagination.

But how lame would you be if, in order to share that art with the real world, you printed images from your favorite game and taped them to the wall. Lame. But it’s a noble thought.

Enter these stunning metal prints of gorgeously rendered battle scenes. Maybe they aren’t something you would hang in the living room. But in your game room? Very, very cool.

Pikachu, Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Charmander

Admit it, you play Pokeman. Come right out and say it. Not ironically, not by pretending you used to play when you were a kid. Own it!

Okay, now isn’t this metal plate of Pikachu, Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Charmander awesome? Where are you going to hang that?

You could, if the option is available to you, hang it in the kids’ room. But no one will be fooled.

Yeah, this is a no-brainer. You have to hang this somewhere in the living room. It undersells itself, assumes you know what it is, and looks great doing it. That’s the very definition of cool, right there.

And you do know what it is. It’s the answer to everything, according to the The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

I don’t know how you can not own that.

The upside down, rendered in art, on metal, that you can hang on the wall? Awesome!

It’s beyond movie poster, this is a beautiful piece of art. It comes in several sizes so you can decide how much play you want to give to this somewhat scary image.

A great piece to hang in your TV room.

No270 -1891 - Toilet paper roll - Inventor Wheeler


From Displate’s patent drawings collection, comes this perfect piece of art to hang in the bathroom. It’s the patent drawing from the 1891 patent for the toilet paper roll.

This just begs the question: What was the world like in 1890?

Hang it in your bathroom so that you can forever be grateful for that which you do have, even if—sometimes—it seems like not much. Because if it weren’t for S. Wheeler in 1891, things would not be so pretty right now.

Hard Disk Drive

There is beauty right there inside the computer you use every day. Why not take a moment and call it out?

This diagram of a hard disk renders those lowly innards, which have made so much of every day possible for decades, in terms anyone can understand: visually.

It’s a great piece for your office or to hang over a desk.

There are so many gorgeous images from Anime at Displate that you could lose hours trying to choose one. (I did.) This scene imagined from The Black Swordsman is so vivid and full of action, it is hard to resist.

You could fill rooms with beautiful anime art. But this one is a good place to start.
