    This is GROWTH, an origami pot created by London-based design firm Studio Ayaskan. The pot can be expanded as your plant grows so you don't have to repot. How convenient. You do have to add more soil though. Unfortunately, GROWTH pots aren't currently for sale, sorry to bur... / Continue →

    This is a video from Hebei, China of six articulated front loaders duking it out Transformers style over a contract dispute between two construction companies. I think all disputes should be resolved with heavy machinery fights. I'm surprised this isn't an organized sport. O... / Continue →

    This is the new Soundwave Transformer toy being released by Hasbro and Xiaomi (~$26). The original Soundwave transformed into a microcasette recorder which makes sense because his name was Soundwave. This version transforms into a nonfunctional Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 tablet computer... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy unloading his custom boat into the water from the back of his custom truck. Together they make one badass looking vehicle. Separately they make one badass looking boat, and one awkward looking truck. Together and banging a helicopter -- now that's th... / Continue →

    This is a video of the transforming Optimus Prime cake that father Russell Munro built for his son's birthday. He 3-D printed all the plastic parts of Optimus's body that hold the cake. Pretty impressive. When I was growing up I was lucky to get a cake at all. Usually my pa... / Continue →

    This is the new Volkswagen California campervan that somebody vinyl wrapped to look like a rusty piece of shit. It reminds me of an old Chevy Astro. Would you steal it? Of course you wouldn't, you're not a car thief. I mean, you're not a car thief, are you? Because if you ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Eizzy Folding Table designed and built by Izzy Swan of Think Woodworks. The 20" x 20" x 30" box breaks into two stackable pieces, and folds out into four stools and a table. Perfect for picnics! What do you say we make some sandwiches and grab a couple... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Japanese artists who have had their faces projection mapped and tracked so they can have different animal and robot faces projected on them while they move around (previously seen before with a lady HERE). Pretty neat. I especially like the speakers-for... / Continue →

    This is 'St. Optimus Of Prime', a 122-piece stained glass piece made by software engineer Craig Kovatch (the first stained glass project of his life). You know, I've always loved stained glass. The color it invites into a room is just so beautiful. It's like, SURPRISE, here'... / Continue →

    Note: Higher-res version HERE. This is a shot posted by director Zack Snyder of the new Batmobile from the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie. As you can see, it looks like one of Michael Bay's Transformers. That sucks too because I bet a friend they were going to bring back... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Advanced Tactics Black Knight Transformer (despite the fact it's beige and neither the Autobots or Decepticons want it on their side) taking its maiden voyage. Let's hope it goes better than the Titanic's. This is the official video of the Advanced Tact... / Continue →

    This is Norwegian engineer Kåre "Zenta" Halvorsen's MorpHex, a hexapod robot that can transform and roll out in a ball. You may actually recall MorpHex from this post back in 2012, this is just the new and improved version. Or maybe it's the exact f***ing same, I'm not sure. ... / Continue →
