    These are the intricate leather armor corsets made by Andrew Kanounov. If I were a lady I would kill for one. Hell, I'm not a lady and I'd still rock one around the house pretending to be Xena Warrior Princess while my roommate is at work. Will I be swinging a sword? At lea... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Nissan Skyline R33 that was coated with heat sensitive paint by UK bodyshop Auto Kandy changing color as cold (or hot?) water is poured on it. I wish my car did that. Of course I wish my car did a lot of things, including not get broken into so often. Th... / Continue →

    These are the crabs arranged to look like a centipede by some unknown dining establishment in the world. I'm guessing somewhere in Japan. Would you eat it? Of course you would, they're just crabs. I would, but I'd have to close my eyes when it came and have a friend put all... / Continue →

    This is 'All In One', an extravagant 12-course meal in a can created by designer Christopher Godfrey to make some sort of statement about contemporary culture and the use of gimmicks to sell products. Dammit, why's it have to make some sort of social commentary, why can't it ... / Continue →

    This is the carbon fiber 'Vessel' bathtub designed and built by Splinter Works. It mounts between two walls, drains through a hole in the floor, and probably costs more than a car. Obviously, it's going on the Christmas list. At 2.7m long, Vessel is longer than a regular bat... / Continue →

    This is The Emperor's Cabinet, a wooden steampunk inspired liquor cabinet built by "woodbutcher" (stay away from me in the morning) Colin Johnson. It looks pretty fancy for something I'm inevitably gonna knock over and break scrambling for another drink. You know what happene... / Continue →

    This is a series of octopus and alien tentacle chandeliers designed by Adam Wallacavage. I think one of the octopus ones would look great in my nautical themed dining room. I'm joking, I don't have a nautical themed dining room. Believe it or not, I don't have a dining room ... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Darth Vader meditation chamber fireplace designed by Dave Delisle. It can be opened and closed to adjust the room temperature or kept closed when not in use. Of course it can't REALLY do anything because it's just a computer rendering and not a real thi... / Continue →

    This is a pair of single spiral high heel (that's kind of similar to this thing) from designer Julian Hakes. It looks like something you'd see in a cheesy futuristic movie. It's not though, it's a real shoe and you can buy them in a bunch of different colors for around $205. ... / Continue →

    This is the battle on Fhloston Paradise from 'The Fifth Element' recreated in LEGO by builder Matt De Lonoy. The Fifth Element -- now that was a good movie. And not just because an orange-haired Milla Jovovich was running around in less medical bandages than you'd find in a f... / Continue →

    This is a shot by Flickr users Matt & Kristy from Dragon*Con featuring a lovely lady showing off her map of Middle Earth dress and matching clutch. Are you surprised I know what a clutch is? ME TOO. *eying picture* I don't know, she seems to have a sort of Disney princess a... / Continue →

    Police in Germany pulled over a 35-year old man doing 130 kph (80 mph) in a 100 kph (~62 mph) zone, and discovered he'd built an entire mobile office in the passenger seat of his vehicle. This is that mobile office. I know, I used 'deluxe' in the title pretty liberally. Bu... / Continue →

    I have no clue if this is actually the first underwater bar. I could probably do a Google search to find out, but you can't even believe anything you read on the internet anymore so it would just be a waste of time. To cover my dimply ass I'll just say this: Subsix is ALLEGED... / Continue →

    Because I'm afraid I won't stop getting the tip until I actually post it, this is a licensed set of 'The Dark Knight Rises' motorcycle leathers from UD Replicas. I have the sneaking suspicion they're the exact same ones they were offering as the 'The Dark Knight' set I posted b... / Continue →
