Moto Rocker is the modern, slightly cooler version of the good old rocking horse. It doesn’t quite punch in the single horsepower of the conventional rocking horse, but it does better with a faux 125cc engine, headlights and tail lights. The seat is made from genuine leather, and for a touch of personalization, the rider’s name finds place on the frame bracket. Costs $1600.
As a wristwatch, this giant may not be the best thing, but it certainly is pretty cool. When you want to know the time, the watch mechanism kicks in and writes time on the watch face.

The DIY project turns impressive when you consider he built this kitchen in the tiny boot space of a 2011 Peugeot iOn.
You could call them creepy or scary, but the word you’re actually looking for is fantastic. Canadian artist MilleCuirs describes the books on his Etsy page as “Handmade leather grimoires, blank books and journals”. Many of the creations do take an aspect that may be described as creepy or scary. That comes with the territory, and likely is the effect the artist aims for in these painstaking and meticulous creations.

So here’s Average Rob, self-proclaimed “Mediocre dude from Belgium” who has been posting photos with his friends on Instagram – just like everybody else. And just because his friends are celebrities and other famous people, it’s being called photoshop. The truth is, everybody knows Rob, and here’s an incident that proves it.
