The Iron Vault desk is inspired by turn of the last century furniture fixtures. Apparently, such riveted and extra strong looking desks were all the rage in offices and businesses that time. We got to say, that strong, rustic look is quite interesting in itself. The table is crafted out of steel sheet and sits on heavy duty metal wheels to do the moving. Priced at $2600.
Anyone can throw a pizza, but it takes a pizza sharpshooter to throw a pizza across a street and into a microwave. This dude happens to be a professional frisbee thrower in Japan, and apparently has great skill with pizza throwing as well.
You’ve probably burnt holes in paper with a magnifying lens, and thought it was cool. This Rube Goldberg machine takes it to an all new, super awesome level where mirrors and magnifying lenses work together to accomplish some very impressive things. Using light as a tool in a Rube Goldberg machine is super cool. The video is part of a campaign by Japanese firm au HIKARI.

As the smoke from the cigarette traveled through the air, the camera captured shots, showing the smoke forming various shapes in the air.
A simple change in perspective goes a long way. As these photographs by Anelia Loubser show, humans can turn into aliens with just simple shift of perspective. The Cape Town based photographer selectively cropped and flipped images to create this fantastic series called Alienation.
The world offers a lot of lovely toys for children, and while we love the usual, the practical ones have a special place in our heart. This playset for example, is an engine repair set that encourages children to “fix” the engine. Tasks include various things like changing the oil, swapping the air filter, checking the dipstick, removing the spark plug, and of course, checking various nuts and bolts.
Sometimes the story just writes itself. Here they are, the whiskey potato crisps/chips. They’ve got whiskey, they’ve got potato. What’s not to like? They’re haggis flavored, so that probably answers the last question. Even so, that’s a sacrifice we’re willing to make. No word on price or availability yet.
