The Russian project “Defected Pixel” is causing quite a stir online, in fact it’s gone viral. The creators combine real photos with pixelated objects, including a man smoking, a gramophone, food…even the sky has been given the eight-bit treatment.

“Defected Pixel” is all about injecting color into the “grey boring days,” according to the creators. All you need is an imagination and Photoshop. More: Defected Pixel h/t: rbth
