    After numerous tests, scientists have confirmed a copy of French writer Arsene Houssaye's "Des destinees de l'ame" was bound with human skin. *eying picture* Nice skin too -- no moles or beauty marks. You think that was back or buttcheek? It's definitely not chest because ... / Continue →

    This is the blood and guts camping tent designed by artist Andrea Hasler. It's made out of wax-covered fiberglass (try carrying that in your backpack!) and doesn't look that comfortable to sleep in. Of course, if it's cold and raining out anything is better than getting eaten... / Continue →

    Just writing the title made me pee a little lot. Seen here looking like something I'd think twice before putting in my mouth (but ultimately still would, even if it came off the floor), a "biological vascularized scaffold" upon which human skin can be grown is displayed. *puk... / Continue →

    This conceptual gel remote from Panasonic lays limp when not in use, pulsating with a soft light. But when its sensors detect a hand coming, it stiffens, ready for action! Constructed of a soft, flesh-like gel, the remote appears cold when off. Once turned on, however, it see... / Continue →

    46-year old Connie Culp was nearly killed when her deranged husband literally blasted her face off with a shotgun in 2004. But now, five years later, she has a new face thanks to a recently deceased organ donor (sign your cards!). She endured 30 operations to try to fix her... / Continue →
