    This is a video of a Brazilian boy who built himself a little model excavator using plastic syringe hydraulics. Most impressive. I'd pretend I could have made something like that growing up, but I'd be lying. The only thing I was making at his age were messes in my pants. "... / Continue →

    But why is it round?! This is the Cork Globe from SUCK UK. It costs $200. You're supposed to use it to push-pin all the cities and countries you've visited so when people come into your office they'll see just how well traveled you are and get super intimidated by your world... / 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 →

    The weight of that lock alone would tear my penis off! Are you a dude? Are you a dude who's been itching to lock away his privates but hasn't found a pecker locker with the right finish yet? Well the wait is over, because CB-X ("the world leader in male chastity") has you co... / Continue →

    These are the wooden floor tiles cut by Spanish flooring company Arbore. They were inspired by MC Escher's famous 'Reptiles' drawing, even if the company refuses to admit it. They did admit it though, so we're cool. No need to make signs and go stand out front of their offic... / Continue →

    This is Futurama's Bender made into a woodburning stove by metalworker Rob Halftroll, who had a troll father and never heard the end of it on the school playground. I know that feel. You just toss some logs in, douse them with alcohol (Bender insists), add a flame, and WHOOSH... / Continue →

    This is Alex Sobolev's triolin, a thee bodied violin mutant. The violins are connected at the base, so the instruments have to be played the opposite way you normally would (with the head at your neck instead of the base). What do you think of this, Charlie Daniels? "The dev... / Continue →

    This is a custom wooden Game of Thrones themed RISK set made by artist Fay Helfer. Hopefully it'll spur Parker Brothers to make an officially licensed version, because I would play that. I'd also brandish a sword at the table and drink mulled wine. Or wine coolers, I don't c... / Continue →
