There are times when you just can’t think of something worthy to say in a conversation. Before the conversation turns awkward with a whole lot of pauses and silence, you’d probably need something like the Conversacube to save the day. The device is a conversation aid that presents you with “helpful cues” to carry on with the conversation. We guess it is something like the magic ball for convesations.
A man in Japan has transformed his Suzuki Hayabusa into a Ferrari. And it’s not just any Ferrari, the brand new trike has been modeled to look like a Ferrari F1 car. You just can’t beat a good-ol’ Ferrari. Creator of this F1 Hayabusa Ferrari says that the people over at Ferrari contacted him, and said they had no problem with the fan vehicle, but added that the prancing horse won’t be so happy if he decided to go commercial with the trike. Another video after the jump.
It seems like we’re hot on the topic of environment today. We do like recycling and recycling something as sinister as weapons into usable furniture gets an applause from us by default. Sculptor Mati Karmin uses Russian AGSB-type sea mines found off the coast to create furniture like desks, fireplaces, lamps, toilets and the like. The job obviously isn’t an easy one, the results though, are amazing.
People in Madrid have the pleasure of playing Tetris on a freakin’ large screen, using their own bodies as controllers. It is a public art project/ video game put up by Lummo Blocks at the Plaza de Las Letras. Two players are required to tango at this game, both moving horizontally in front of the screen. One of these people controls the trajectory of the piece, while the other gets to handle the rotation.
Recycling/upcycling is a great idea, but when making lamps out of upcycled materials, the form and thought behind the design do overshadow the idea a bit. Thankfully, Swedish design collective Oddbirds have it all thought out. Their lamps are made from recycled, found or inherited tableware. The selection gives these lamps an old-world charm, plus a uniqueness. After all, it isn’t everyday that you come across lamps made from cups and plates.
Okay, we’ve already seen the snug-fit spray-on tees, but for those looking for something a bit more formal, the Pseudomorph dress would be a better outfit. Well, that is speaking the sci-fi futuristic kind of way, because the dresses don’t actually look ready for a day out. The pneumatic control valves in the neckpiece pump ink designs into the absorbent dress material, creating unique designs. The dress requires a 9V battery to function, and has been created by designer Anouk Wipprecht.
