The art of the mash-up is simple enough to explain: take concepts from at least two different media and blend them together into one seamless amalgamation. Here on Destructoid, we've showcased various mash-ups from over the years, from a steampunk Mr. Destructoid helmet to Adventure Time-as-Mother 3 fan art. There are many examples of mash-ups with two distinct bases, but what would happen if a third influence were introduced? Would the universe implode by the sheer density of awesome?
Enter Julius von Brunk, the LEGO hobbyist who recently constructed the amazing Mario 3 airship. His follow-up is on a smaller scale technically, but it's just mind-f*ck-blowing conceptually. It is -- get this -- a Transformer built out of LEGO bricks that turns into a Game Boy. Cheese and crackers, a motherf*ckin' LEGO Game Boy Transformer!
The creation is named Domaster, an abbreviation of "Dot Matrix with Stereo Sound," and he's equipped with a pair of AA battery blasters and an avian support unit called Tetrawing that turns in a Tetris cartridge. This isn't the first such Transformer that Julius concocted, either -- last month, he created Plasmashock, a transforming NES Zapper. Simply incredible.

Adr1ft is a stunning VR space exploration, and it came from a 'f*ck it' mentality
