Why bother bringing your kids to the playground when you can BE the playground? Created at the Tama Art University in Japan by graduating senior Atsushi Shiraishi, the ‘AthleTitti’ is a vest which has crisscrossing ropes that parents put on, letting their child climb them like a human jungle gym.
It might not be a ring, but it’ll still make you go: ‘My preciousssss’. UK-based Alex Dodson of ‘Burned By Design’, has come up with a fire pit that looks like the head of the Witch-King of Angmar in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Oh boy, this would surely bring foot fetish (or is it food fetish?) to a whole new level. Fresh from the sushi carousel, these delicious-looking sushi socks are made in Toyama, Japan.
For his own wedding, artist and designer Benjamin Shine created two sculptures of his and his bride’s profiles gazing at each other, with both extending to long sculptural ribbons that spiraled in and out of the trees in the forest where the wedding was held. The ribbons, in turn, directed his wedding guests right up to the ceremony’s seating area.
After 30 years (yes, three-zero) of being locked up in stifling metal lab cages and behind bullet-proof glass, a group of chimpanzees were finally given the freedom they deserved. Get the tissues ready because this is one hell of an emotional roller coaster.
First there was the dress (it’s black and blue, you guys). But now, for whatever reason, the Internet has sparked up a new conversation… and it involves the colour of these nails.
If you really can’t stand someone, you should opt out of the glitter fad and go with a bag of dicks. Yes, that’s right, folks. You can now send your greatest enemies (or frenemies) a big bag of dicks and go tell ‘em to eat a few, too.
Swedish sign language interpreter makes it hard to tell who’s actually competing in this singing contest
You know what? Girls might just wanna have fun, but sign language interpreters just wanna get down and boogie! The world was amused when Lydia Callis gave an Oscar-worthy performance of signing while New York City Mayor Bloomberg gave a speech on Hurricane Sandy.
When your dog greets you, he wags his tail. Maybe he jumps up and licks you a few times. And when otters see their favourite zoo keeper? Well, the excitement is just as adorable.
Boston-based Google hardware engineer Adam Woodworth has come up with possibly the closest thing we have to a real-life Star Wars speeder bike: a modified quadcopter that looks like it. Interplanetary races at the park, anyone? Using a 12-inch speeder bike replica that was released back in the ‘90s, Woodworth was able to integrate four seven-inch rotors, giving the Star Wars toy the ability to fly (no word yet on the blasters.)
The pony you’ve always wanted. Back in 2010 for the Seoul Cycle Design Competition, designer Eungi Kim came up with a novel concept that turns your bike into a horse. Called ‘Horsey’, the whimsical accessory/ornament is made out of a wooden material that you can easily attach to your bike, making your ride stand out from the rest!
Goes to show that anything can be made in China, including awesome space robots. Farmers Yu Zhilin and Yu Lingyun have made a lucrative business out of turning old auto parts into giant replicas of Transformers characters. And if that’s not impressive enough, as reference, they just used instructions from the internet.
Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who was fooled by artist Thierry Duval. It’s just that his talent is so great that his watercolours look exactly like beautifully shot photographs.
