Sniffologists; suckers for punishment … call them what you want, but, hey, someone’s gotta do it, right? I mean, if it wasn’t for the, erm, Armpit Sniffers of the world, our deodorants would all fail us and we wouldn’t want that, would we. No, no. So let’s all raise our collective arms to the heavens […]

I don’t know how San Francisco artist Liz Hickok constructs her dramatic cityscapes entirely out of jelly without at least nibbling a bite out of one of the imposing facades. Of her San Francisco series, she says: ‘Lit from below, the molded shapes of the city blur into a jewel-like mosaic of luminous color and volume. The gelatinous material also evokes uncanny parallels with the geological uncertainties of San Francisco’s landscape. While the translucent beauty of the compositions first seduces the viewer, their fragility quickly becomes a metaphor for the transitory nature of human artifacts’.
It’s no idle claim: ‘LIFX is the smartest light bulb you’ve ever experienced’. Why? ‘It’s a wifi-enabled, energy efficient, multi-colored bulb that you control with your iPhone or Android’. So it will last for 25 years and reduce your energy costs at the same time. Smart, huh? The founders have listed a number more compelling […]
So you have an awesome MP3 collection. Who cares if no one’s dancing to it. Well, with Shimi, you have a dancing buddy no matter what tune is spinning. This is ‘a real robot with artificial intelligence that analyzes music it plays through his speaker-ears and generates real-time unique dance moves to bring the music […]
These miraculous photos of colourful jellyfish were taken by marine biologist Alexander Semenov around the White Sea Biological Station, on the western coast of Russia. Semenov graduated from Lomonosov’s Moscow State University in the department of Zoology where he specialized in the study of invertebrate animals, with an emphasis on squid brains.
From the not-quite-useless-but-nearly file comes this startling invention – named Jamy – by French designer Nathan Brunstein which is literally a toaster that predicts and prints the weather forecast using an inbuilt barometer and thermometer. So now you don’t need to listen to those awful morning DJs to get the low down on what to wear that day.
Oh man, to have been a fly on the, erm, tree around this era when pastels and floral prints and leg ties were in and only squares (man) bucked the trend. These photos from Retronaut were taken from the LIFE archives and were shot by Arthur Schatz.
Our friends over at Retronaut have published a collection of revealing print ads showing the mighty Titanic in full flight and enticing customers to sign up, sign up for the cruise of a lifetime. How right they were. There’s something quite haunting about the visuals that accompany the slogans.
Ever wondered what Vodka looks like under a microscope? Or Pina Colada (see above)? Or Whiskey? Thankyou, then, BevShots, which are literally ‘photographs of alcohol under a microscope … taken after they have been crystallized on a slide and shot under a polarized light microscope. As the light refracts through the beverage crystals, the resulting photos have naturally magnificent colors and composition’. Indeed they do. Awe-and-some. Read on to see which photo corresponds with which drink.
Well, if can you apply for the CEO role at Yahoo, you should probably be able to apply for the coveted position of boyfriend. To a total stranger, who posted on, erm Facebook. But, ladies, with skills in cuddling, shopping, and, ah, oral pleasure (yes, he’s talkative), this fella appears to be quite a catch. […]
Now here’s an idea: create a super catchy single and then persuade those with the purse strings to fly you from Australia to Jamaica to shoot the video. My only regret is that Van She has the idea first. Damn! But they win, hands down (or up in the air, as the case may be) with this awesome track, Jamaica, off their new album, Idea of Happiness. Van She will be playing a limited run of dates in Australia this September before they head overseas for a string of shows across Europe and America. They’ll be returning home for Stereosonic and Foreshore Festivals this summer.
