Italian artist Dario Tironi makes these impressive sculptures almost exclusively out of discarded objects. Thankfully, these sculptures are not made from random objects slapped together in some weird shape. Thought and finesse have gone into each sculpture, and it shows itself in somewhat smooth curves make themselves apparent, even though they’re just old barbies, plastic bottles, calculators, and whatnot glued together.
Making Transformer sculptures out of scrap has apparently become a hobby of the talented. Thai sculptor Anchalee Saengtai creates these super impressive autobot sculptures using scrap materials. Each of the sculptures can be 8-feet to 19-feet tall and have made appearances at several events. Decepticons probably get the punishment for being bad.

Faraday tea set is a concept that intends for making tea to be as much a social thing as actually consuming tea. Mostly, people have to leave their guests while they prepare tea. Faraday makes use of borosilicate glass, which works on making tea with an induction plate in the tray. This means water can be boiled at the table, and the host won’t have to leave to boil it up on a stove top. Faraday concept has been developed by Free Time Industries.

Yeah, this is another piece of automotive furniture. But this one is somewhat as good as a dining table with a motor squished inside. A creation of Jacek Holubowicz, the sofa has two separate 8-gear hubs, hydraulic brakes operated by the front handlebar, and dynamic chain steering. Put into simple language, you sit with a pal on the sofa, and push the pedals. Oh, and if it is too hot and sunny, you could always pull up the convertible roof. For good measure, the sofa bike is also packed with a 17 mAh battery and a stereo.

If you really consider the age of superheroes, most of them are pushing their seventies. Seemingly, they don’t age like other people do, but if thy did, it would be a sorry sight looking a lot like this image from Bryan Lee.
Modern way of life gives us little time to socialize, mostly keeping us all busy in our own lives. Living Light is something that encourages people to socialize. Designed by Joon&Jung, the lamp manages its brightness considering the number of people around it. As the group of people close to the lamp increases in numbers, the lamp “blossoms like a flower” steadily increasing the amount of light and even spreading its own petals. The maximum brightness this lamp can reach is 1750 Lumen (equivalent to 220V 120W incandescent light bulb), while consuming just 15W of power.
