Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Travel on Wednesday 10 September 2014

Because if you’re shelling out big bucks for the view, you might as well get the best you can, right? Now, this home is just a conceptual property for now, but with stunning views of the ocean and those magnificent cliffs along the Great Ocean Road, how could you not want this to go ahead?

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Food and Packaging on Wednesday 10 September 2014

All-egg ‘desserts’ aren’t my thing, but they might be yours. And if they’re your thing, then you’ll be super impressed with this Japanese-designed  egg-spinning dessert maker. The Okashina Tamago Mawashite Mawashite Marugoto Purin, or, awkwardly translated as ‘Pudding whole turn turn funny eggs‘ machine takes a single egg at a time, which is then spun around for about 2 minutes.

Artist creates awesome anime artwork on a single Post-it note

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in New Art on Monday 8 September 2014

I hate Post-its as they were often scrawled with ‘I want this by 10 am tomorrow’ when they arrived at my work desk, stubbornly stuck on top of a stack of files. If only they came in the form of Akira Nagoya’s beautifully cut artwork. The China-Born Japanese artist is a kakmikiri (loosely translated as paper cutting) master, and many of his designs are inspired by centuries-old imagery, such as the phoenix, or nature’s flowers.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 5 September 2014

This has to be the most brutal prank we’ve seen. Well, this or the undead elevator girl. But that’s another story altogether. For this prank, the jokers at SA Wardega dressed a cute puppy up as a giant mutant spider and then went to great lengths to unleash (gettit?) the ‘spider’ in a variety of scenarios on the unsuspecting public. Terrifying? TERRIFYING! We aged 5 years just watching it. [This is officially the most viral post we've run on Lost At E Minor]
