    This is the Flow honey harvesting system. It consists of a box beehive with 3-D printed honeycombs inside that bees fill with honey, then cap off. Once the honeycombs are completed, a simple twist of a handle splits the honeycombs, creating a channel for the honey to flow thr... / Continue →

    A street artist going by the name Wanksy started spraypainting problematic potholes in Manchester, England with crude penises, and the majority were repaired within 48 hours, and even more within the week. That is how you GET THINGS DONE. Wanksy says the inspiration for his r... / Continue →

    This is a video of a hungry fox in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine making itself a sandwich by stacking the slices of bread and sausage tossed to it by a news crew. For reference, my roommate still can't make a sandwich, or eat one without biting his own fingers. I wo... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of broken bone x-rays that have been repurposed as a lampshade. Presumably by a mad scientist or an evil doctor. Are those even human body parts? That one on the right looks like an animal paw. What kind of experiments was this mad scientist performing? A... / Continue →

    These are the Rainworks street art and games created in Seattle using stencils and water-repellant spray. For those of you who were unaware, Seattle is notorious for its rain. Here in Southern California? Not so much. Apparently we're supposed to run out of water in like a ... / Continue →

    This is the $85 Alice In Wonderland doorknob kit made and sold by Etsy seller propsculptor. It looks like the talking doorknob from the drink me/eat me scene in the movie. I always thought that doorknob was a jerk. And kinda dumb too. Like my roommate. Don't tell him I sai... / Continue →

    This is A Shout Within a Storm, an installation by artist Glenn Kaino featuring over 100 copper arrows all seeming to be headed towards the same point. That point being, more often than not, somebody making a face and getting their picture taken. I've had dreams of dying in a... / Continue →

    These are the wooden NES cartridge cutting boards (technically "Retro 8 bit Game Cartridge Cutting Boards" because copyright laws) made and sold by Dave Stencil of Etsy shop CuttingBoredom. They're available in walnut, cherry, maple and mahogany and come in a 9" x 10" version ... / Continue →

    Because nothing brings me greater joy than people on the internet asking "Slow news day?", this is a picture of some clever kid using an IKEA table to view his smartphone hands-free. Not bad. At least until you fall asleep and wake up and break that table with your face. You... / Continue →

    The World's First Plantable Coffee Cup is a Kickstarter campaign to produce biodegradable single-use coffee cups with seeds embedded in them that will grow when planted. Granted they're not actually the FIRST plantable coffee cups, because all coffee cups are plantable, they j... / Continue →

    These are the Sushi Towels created by designer Jenny Pokryvailo (of Loch Ness Monster soup ladle fame) for Ototo, who better hurry up and produce them before I steal the idea and start selling them myself. When rolled properly, they look like different styles of sushi rolls. ... / Continue →

    This is a series of bananas carved, cut and inked by artist Stephan Brusche to look like other things. He did a fantastic job. Still, I feel like it would be weird to be an artist and have somebody ask what medium you work in and have to tell them bananas. I mean, there's no... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful stop-motion video created by animator Jon Rolph of an artist (presumably himself) producing a Mondrian replica by painting with LEGO bricks. You know, I wish I had the patience to make stop-motion videos because I have some GOOD IDEAS. "Let's hear them." ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Brazilian girl catching piranhas by dangling a piece of raw meat in the water, waiting for the piranhas to bite it, then tossing them in a bucket. A fairly solid technique. That plank she's standing on? Not very solid. What's the opposite of something t... / Continue →

    This is DeviantARTist Nyima-chan cosplaying as a Stargate. Pretty clever. The yellow chevrons around the gate even light up. That's a nice touch. Maybe for next Halloween I'll be a worm hole. Specifically: Earthworm Jim's anus. Everyone will ask what I'm supposed to be, a... / Continue →

    This is an ad for the upcoming Pepsi Super Bowl 49 Halftime Show featuring a live insect (and spider) band. It's worth a watch, and that's saying a lot because I only drink Coke. Sadly, the band never got to finish the rest of its tour because of my foot. Keep going for the ... / Continue →

    This is the Cthulhu Christmas wreath created by Maika Keuben (of Cthulhu Christmas tree fame). It's the perfect wreath to let carolers know they've come to the wrong house to sing at. But by the time they realize it, it will be too late, and the tar and feathers will already ... / Continue →

    This is the old CRT television cabinet that Redditor matttheman11 turned into an aquarium that looks like Jerry's apartment from Seinfeld (full step-by-step plans of the build HERE). The fish that live in the aquarium are even named after the four major cast members, plus Newm... / Continue →
