    This is a small series of tattoos that appear 3-D. There's this spider, a butterfly and a ladybug, as well as a couple that make it look like the person's skin is peeling off to reveal something else underneath. I thought the treasure map one like that was pretty cool. Besi... / Continue →

    Note: Link to livefeed of the feeder HERE. This is Plipshow, a livefeed of a birdfeeder that was designed to look like a little coffee shop. It's the brainchild of photographer Magne Klann. My brainchild? Napkins made specifically for chili. During daylight hours, avian vi... / Continue →

    This is the surreal elephant LEGOmaniac Jin Kei made to resemble one from Salvador Dali's iconic Los Elefantes (picture of the original painting after the jump). Pretty cool, right? I'd proudly display that in my apartment. Or on my desk at work. I mean, if I had a desk. I... / Continue →

    I know a wire bending machine doesn't sound that exciting, but you are wrong. This shit is HYPNOTIC. Like, on the count of three you will give me a kiss. One...two...three. Okay, where was my kiss? Screw it, I'm pulling out the big guns. *dangling pocket watch* When I s... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of the Caterpillar P5000 Power Loader costume from the original Aliens movie that father Carsten Riewe built for him and his daughter (previously: this one). It took him 100 hours to complete. That's a lot of time hanging out in the garage. Me? I love ... / Continue →

    Meet drummer Jason Barnes. Jason lost part of his right arm in an accident, so Georgia Tech professor Gil Weinberg built him robotic prosthesis so he could still drum his face off and become a rock star. Hell, I haven't even heard him play yet and I'd still throw my bra at hi... / Continue →

    This are Erik Aberg's Ghostcubes, a bunch of different interconnected cardboard cube designs that behave in magical ways. You really just have to watch the video to appreciate them, because they're hard to describe. Kind of like your beauty. Like, radiant doesn't do you just... / Continue →

    This is Austrian designer Klemens Torggler demonstrating one of the kinetic sculpture doors he's created. It's pretty cool. And it is practical from a 'It doesn't swing into the room and take up any space' standpoint. But it's not very practical from a locking standpoint. I... / Continue →

    This is one of the $13,000 bar stools made by Hanger 54 from the Martin Baker Mk10 ejector seat from a decommissioned RAF Panavia Tornado. I would drink in that. I would drink in that AND perform constant barrel rolls (technically just 360's). I love playing fighter pilots a... / Continue →

    This is a video tutorial from CrazyRussianHacker (of how to open a can with no tools fame) showing how to make square bubbles with a rig made out of cotton swabs. Don't have any cotton swabs? Then how the hell are you cleaning your ears? And don't tell me you bought that lit... / Continue →

    This is a set of 3-D printed thorn dice designed by Shapeways user ceramicwombat. You can get plastic versions for as low as $27, but that makes you a cheap-ass. Just save up the $82 and get a decent metal set or don't get any at all. Just think about how badass your next Du... / Continue →

    He looks like something straight out of a Dr. Seuss story, doesn't he? Well he's not, he's a previously undescribed species of planthopper photographed in real life. I just want to rub his fuzzy ass on my cheeks, don't you? Like nature's little makeup brush. Many planthoppe... / Continue →

    This is Sandy Cramer and her horse Raven. Sandy hand-painted Raven over the course of five hours to look like a skeleton horse. Does it glow in the dark? It would be even cooler if it did. If you want to see Raven the skeleton horse you can head down to the Knot Just Rope h... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Kansas City Maker Faire of a Tesla coil playing AWOLNATION's 'Sail'. It almost sounds like the song was meant to be performed by Tesla coils. It wasn't though, it was meant to be performed in my earbuds when I am pumping iron at the gym AND GETTING F*... / Continue →

    This is Starpath, a sprayable glow in the dark lighting system that makes pathways twinkle like a billion little stars after the sun goes down. That way you don't accidentally wander off the path and get eaten by bears. You may get mesmerized by all the stars and crash your b... / Continue →
