3D printing is fast changing the way we manufacture objects, from tools and toys, to clothing, and even body parts. Recently, giant 3D printers in China were able to produce ten houses in just one day, and at a cost of less than US$5,000 per house, proving just how time and cost efficient 3D printing […]
We’re not sure if this is the greatest thing to ever happen to MANkind, or the very worst. A new machine is hitting Chinese hospitals, which according to the urology director of Nanjing Hospital is designed ‘to help individuals that are finding it difficult to retrieve sperm the old fashioned way’.
One Chinese ‘lingerie lady’ has been titillating numerous eyeballs at her lingerie stall within a marketplace in Fengrun District of Tangshan City, Hebei Province of China. Not one to let her good looks and sexy bod go to waste, our lass has been wearing nothing but the very skimpy products she is selling while striking supermodel poses for all and sundry.
The mainland Chinese have been consistently making a stir in the tech scene, and now they have one more thing to add to that list: SmellMe, a social networking platform just for pets. Apparently it is still in its early days with ‘only’ 500,000 registered users on it. Besides making social updates via the mobile […]
We’ve all heard (or seen) the smog of China, with thick blankets of pollution covering the entire city skylines across the country. But what happens when it gets too much? You send in fresh air, of course. A Henan-based travel company shipped 20 bags of air to Zhengzhou as ‘a special treat for residents’.
If these adorable photos don’t melt your heart, then your middle name must be ‘Polar Vortex’. In a kitchen in Juilongjian Forest Park, Ruchen County, China, puppies huddle around a staff canteen stove to keep their cold little bodies warm and toasty. Despite their thick and fluffy fur, it’s still not enough to protect them […]
In Foshan, China, you can find the number one contender for the title of ‘Weirdest Fountain in the World’. There exists an installation built out of 10,000 recycled toilets, sinks, and urinals, covering a 100 meter long and 5 meter high wall. The public art piece was created by artist Shu Yong, who spent two months creating the bizarre sight.
Apparently, Chinese malls understand consumer behavior – or should we say anti-consumer behavior – so well that some of them have even set aside some sort of store room for unenthusiastic guys to be kept in as they wait for their partners to be done with their retail therapy.
What is this? An enterprising code developer working for a US infrastructure firm actually outsourced his entire job to a Chinese company so all he had to do every day was to turn up in office at 9am, go on Reddit, watch cat videos, take a lunch break, go on Ebay, check Facebook and LinkedIn updates, hand in a work report for the day, then knock off at 5pm sharp.
Given a choice between laughing and wincing at these embarrassing childhood photos, we’d obviously go for the former. But only because of two things: 1. we aren’t one of the kiddos pictured and 2. no one was cruel enough to take a picture in our time to scar us for life. Double score.
What do you get when you give a crane operator a camera? Amazing, award-winning photographs of Shanghai’s rising skyline, that’s what. Wei Gensheng is a crane operator working on the tallest building in China and second tallest in the world, the Shanghai Tower. At 121 storeys tall, it’s fairly easy to say that Gensheng has […]
Atlantis isn’t the only underwater world around. In China, underneath the man-made lake of Qiandao, sits the ancient city of Shi Cheng. The city, dubbed as Lion City because of nearby Five Lion Mountain, is a 1,300 year old city that was submerged 53 years ago. The Chinese flooded the valley to make way for […]
Dustin Grzesik, a geophysicist by training, has done the population of China a big favor. He’s developed an app, Banshirne, that ‘predicts when the capital will enjoy its next bout of clean air’. Amusing to some, yeah, but China faces a dire situation, with air pollution levels having reached up to 800 last year (50 […]
If you think you’ve got an Instagram pic worthy of wall space, pixeli.st might be for you. This company offers handmade oil paintings from your face Instagrams and photos, with the tagline ‘your pixels, our paint’. It’s really quite amazing how realistic their paintings are.
Kids seem to have all the fun when it comes to amusement parks and traveling shows, so why not give the adults some excitement? China sure knows how to do just that! As part of the Kerry Hotel’s “Pink October” campaign and raising awareness of breast cancer prevention, they added 1 million pink and green […]
