Captured by Terje Sorgjerd, this time lapse video shows the majesty of our galaxy. The video was captured from Spain’s highest mountain El Taide, and the choice of location evidently worked very well for the shoot.
A fashion student at Bath Spa University has designed a set of shoes made from cheese and stale bread. Lisa Dillon made the footwear by carving out West Country cheddar to make the heels and using stale cheese sandwich as platform for the sole.

Considering that the basic electronic components of a mobile phone have been miniaturized enough, creating a phone like this won’t pose much of a problem, the unusual design and minimalist approach however, do make it more of a niche product. When not in use, the phone generally lays flat as paper, but when you need to make or receive a call, the body of the phone changes into a tri-dimensional structure that goes easy on the hands.
Italian manufacturers Biocamino have come up with a new offering “Speak” that puts the fireplace right in the desk. If you need the entire surface of the table, the fireplace is more than happy to be hidden in the desk. Of course, the desk is not intended to be a workhorse, but would gladly lend itself to ornamental use.
