Colombian sculptor César López creates some of the most badass looking guitars that presumably make other guitars look woefully inadequate with their war stories. The sculptor noticed many armed guards carried their guns like they would a guitar, leading Lopez towards the idea of fashioning guitars from the scary AK-47s. Lopez does not sell his creations, but hopes that “in the end the gun dies and the guitar is born.”
We’ve always admired Lego creations, but this one is simply a piece of magnificence. Created by Jack Streat, this gun is a HK UMP 45 replica, but what makes it truly remarkable is its ability to fire! It is capable of firing bullets, aka Lego bricks from its dual 15-brick Lego magazines.
Designed by Hyun-Seok Kim, the Easy Express Emotion bed is made for lovers, for their emotions, and probably for uncomfortable sleep. Apart from leading to body aches, the curves of the bed can also be used by lovers to express their emotions. When the couple is all happy and in the mood, the bed (or mattresses) can come together in the shape of a smiley, putting the lovers close together. This, we assume, is represented by the heart on top of the bed in place. When the couple is sparring and decide that they need some space, the bed can go separate, a tale told by the broken heart.
Pininfarina is well known for the majesty and beauty of its designs. Designer Peter Norris has attempted to follow the same line as the well known coachbuilders for his independent design. He started off with an idea to develop a luxury car that would carry the brand’s name, and created the Pininfarina coupe. The concept goes with the traditional front engine rear-wheel drive, but the point lies in the excellent looks of the concept, that could possibly hold up to Pininfarina standards.
Ingo Maurer‘s unique lighting designs are an easy catch for the eyes. They do not seem extravagant, but they have been so well executed you can’t help admiring them.
Natural Speakers have punctuated ceramic cubes sitting atop a stack of twigs. According to Korean designers Joon&Jung, this combination lends an echo to the speakers, and gives them a more natural and solid sound.
Why would anyone want to fly those plain radio controlled airplanes when you can fly airplanes decked out as superheroes. They are available in two models: 75 inch and 57-inches. We’re not sure how good any of them are, but you could have some laughs if you fly them at the right height.
Gramaphone iPod station faithfully copies the look of the old timey gramophones, providing a slight antique touch. We’d expect the gramophone itself to be the voice output, but apparently there’s a speaker in the base to handle that stuff.
The latest Pirates of the Caribbeans movie is sitting comfortably at the top of the box office right now, and Captain Jack Sparrow has come out as a 9-feet tall metallic sculpture that weighs about 1000 pounds. The sculpture was made by Thailand’s Kreatworks Studio using scrap metal from cars and machines. Some gears and cogs are visible on the Captain’s person, but we’re not quite sure if they do qualify this sculpture to be a Steampunk Jack Sparrow. You can buy the sculpture from Etsy for a price of $7700, pirates don’t come cheap.
