The acrobatic and martial arts of the Shaolin warriors, while awesome to behold, can be greatly appreciated in slow motion, when you realize the sheer coordination that must go into these complex acts with milliseconds worth of reaction time.
Nixie tubes are awesome. They’ve got the whole glowy, shining thing going around, and while they may be past their heyday, nothing is going to beat them in looks. This thermometer can show temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin, and also displays humidity. Costs $180.
Vintage themed lamps and objects that artist Cory Barkman (previously) creates, come from a very elaborate process. The stunning design and the beautiful appearance are of course, a big part of the job, but the story of materials used in making these lamps is impressive in itself. Most of the objects used in the construction of these lamps are reclaimed mechanical parts from a scrap yard. Once the idea takes its shape, Cory looks for parts suitable for his lamps or forges a part if it cannot be found.
Relaxing as hammocks are, they get way better when you can add the prospects of luxury. Viking Hammock by Jim Zivic gets a luxurious, perhaps rustic setting that endeavors to add to it the Viking name. It does live up to the name, with a look that has a certain something going about it we can’t put a finger on, but what we would never call tame.
A party trick like this in your arsenal would make you hot, popular and probably put you in a place to solve problems like hunger and world peace. There is nothing a guy who opens 24 beer bottles at once cannot do. Sadly, this dude missed a few points, so the world still waits for the messiah who can.
As creativity goes, check this one out. It is a music video for the song To the River by the band James Wallace and the Naked Light. Where you view all the happenings going on, is the eyeball. They say everything was shot in a single take, and with no post-processing whatsoever. Now that, is super.
3D tech is getting awesome by the day and is now headed straight to consumer use. Of the hell lot of things that we’ll be printing soon, guns apparently will be one. Designed by Defense Distributed, this is the first full 3-D printed gun in the world, which for some reason has been named The Liberator. It’s obviously not really ready for combat, or for that matter not even a safe weapon given the fair chance that it might explode. Although it pretty much goes to show the power of 3D printing.
The old mac not working good enough? Well, it might be time to let the dude retire and move on to some other job, probably see the world. What the Mac didn’t see coming was that its “seeing the world” would have it perched up on a short stick, getting paper thrown into its guts. Might be a disheartening end to the story of the Mac, but you know what, that was all that it ever wanted. That pointless rambling being over, hit ahead to see a few more creative mailboxes, this time, presented without ramblings.
Let your kitchen chores know you mean business by donning video game aprons that make a distant appeal to the characters they represent. Still better than the usual fare, I guess. These aprons are mostly made to order and are available at Dark Balloons Etsy shop, you know, the people who make those Game of Thrones dragon eggs we saw earlier.
