Ladies, if you have trouble waking up in the morning or hate the sound of that annoying alarm clock, here’s a more, erm, pleasurable alternative: Little Rooster. It’s an alarm clock that wakes you up in all the right places. We spoke to Little Rooster inventor, Tony Maggs, about this magnificent product. [Read our original post about this alarm clock and our Facebook Friends also asked him some questions]
It wasn’t long ago that we knew about this pub hiding out in a giant baobab tree in South Africa. Now we’ve sniffed out the Ali Barbour’s Cave, which is estimated to be aged between 120,000 and 180,000 years, harboring, well, not forty thieves, but a bar restaurant that has operated out of it for […]
The yellow dots are attacking from the dark forests! Kidding. These photos are actually of fireflies lighting up at night. Okayama-based photographer Tsuneaki Hiramitsu has taken shots of fireflies for years, often going out of the city and into dark, wooded areas where the fireflies reside.
Phil’s Fish Market is a restaurant located in Moss Landing, a small town with a population of 204 (as of 2010). It’s known for its delicious seafood, but what’s also making headlines about this small-town restaurant is its world map that asks its guests the question; ‘Where are you visiting from?’
Yes, we’ve discovered another witty illustration from Wendy MacNaughton that breaks down the decision-making process behind whether we should check our email, or not. We have just one word: Haha!
Pennsylvania-based artist Jodi Harvey-Brown creates whimsical sculptures of ships, dragons, and other fantastical characters from books. No, not inspired by the books, they are actually made out from parts of the book.
With over 20,000 characters in the Chinese language – with most of them looking identical to each other – you could say learning the language is a daunting task. But entrepreneur Shao Lan Hsueh believes that with a visual-based learning system, you could easily learn 1,000 characters that’s enough for basic literacy. Enter ‘Chineasy’, an illustration book that associates imagery around characters to tell stories and make memorization fun.
Kids always get away with baring their fragile souls to the whole world, clearly, as this ridiculously entertaining collection of notes and confessions penned by kids to their parents, the tooth fairy, God, teachers, friends and nobody in particular shows.
Here’s a wedding cake that’s to die for. Texas-based husband and wife David and Natalie Sideserf had a wedding cake that was, unique, to say the least. Being the owners of a specialty cake shop called Sideserf Cake Studio, they ditched tradition and baked a bloody cake featuring their severed heads on a platter with […]
FDR’s famous quote, ‘The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself’, has never been truer than in the video game ‘Nevermind’. The game doesn’t need your kickass hand-eye coordination or lightning-quick reflexes or in-game tactics. All it needs is your fear to feed upon your mortal soul. Ok maybe not fear itself, but more on your heart beat. The adventure-horror game tracks your heart beat and produces more stressful and frightening scenarios once your ticker beats faster.
A font made of ‘1,000 eggs, 10 pans, 5 burned fingers, 3 hours, 1 bottle of oil and a half of flat smelling like perfect and brand new Eggs’? Created by Estonia-based design company HandmadeFont, this eggy font goes well with hash browns and toast on the side and will set you back by just […]
Well at least we know people back in the past enjoyed farting like we do now. The following images are from ancient Japanese scrolls that dates way back to the Edo period (1603-1868). The documents depict what they call ‘he-gassen’ or ‘farting competition’. Yes, we’re looking at valuable documents with historical significance, and it’s about people farting.
We might as well be singing The Little Mermaid’s ‘A Part of Your World’ with this fantastical photo series. Hana Vojáčková is a Prague-born, London-based photographer who has attempted to merge the mythical world of mermaids with our own. In ‘Milk & Sea’, she asks the questions, ‘what could mermaids’ stories be if the mermaids […]
Bill Passman plans to travel the world extensively, so much so that he needs a reminder of where he’s been to. And so he got a tattoo of the world map on his back and colours in each country after he visits it. Pretty cool souvenir, huh? [read our original post about Bill Passman and a Facebook Q&A he did with our Facebook Friends]
This skull looks like it came straight out of an Indiana Jones film. Carved from amethyst and agate crystals, which historically represent good luck and stability, this incredible gem is 7.6 inches long from front to back. But really, who wouldn’t want this guy displayed on their mantle?
It appears that in Victorian times, it was all the rage for mommies to take their babies to the photo studio so their little ones could have their portraits taken professionally. Which meant that the doting moms had to disguise themselves as part of the backdrop as they held their kids tight for the camera. […]
In a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers proved that emotions have direct physiological connections to the parts of our body. So if you’re feeling angry or happy, chances are a part of your body is reacting to it, so it’s not just Lust that’s get a bodily reaction […]
Los Angeles-based photographer Tim Tadder gives us physics-defying series about people wearing hair made out of water in ‘Water Wigs’ and ‘Water Wigs Women’. Using high speed photography and perfect timing, Tadder captures the water splashing on the models just as the water balloons burst on impact. If you think this is a hard process to do, you’re probably right.
Porto Alegre, the capital city of the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul is being called ‘the most beautiful street in the world’. Why? Take a look at these photos and see for yourself. Each side of the street is lined with trees, with some as tall as the 7th floors in adjacent buildings. […]
Anthros is an eye-catching collection of anthropomorphic animal illustrations by US-based digital artist Kim Nguyen. What exactly is anthropomorphic? (Don’t fret, I had to look that one up too.) According to Merriam-Webster, anthropomorphic is defined as, ‘described or thought of as having a human form or human attributes’. So in this case, we have animals that take on human personalities and form.
