Cube home has dimensions of 10ft, includes most necessities

How much space could someone need to live comfortably? We don’t know the answer, but we’d never have guessed that it could ever be a cube with 10 feet sides. This tiny cube house has a table, two chairs, full-size shower, kitchen and a 4-ft wide double bed, all in a pint-sized package. Solar panels on the roof can provide enough energy to run the cube, and apparently even generate excess energy to sell back to the grid, raking in about £1,000 (~$1600) for owners annually. Cube Project is an initiative of Dr Mike Page at the University of Hertfordshire, and focuses on having a minimum impact on the environment.

Temporary, stylish tattoos for your lips

I’m no fashion expert even by a long shot, but lip tattoos and lip art sure seem to be getting popular with every single passing day. In place of wrestling around with gloss or lipstick, you could just put on a temporary tattoo, with stylish looks and interesting designs. I can’t really decide if they are good or bad, but the sheer choice of patterns Violent Lips have probably means something could work just fine.

Microsoft hourglass salt and pepper shaker

Microsoft have long changed the hourglass pointer, but most of us do very well remember the the hourglass pointer that used to appear when the computer went “busy” with a task. This salt and pepper shaker is inspired from the very same pointer, and will be called Salty Pixels when it hits the market. For some reason we fail to understand, the vendors have no pricing details on this one.

YouTube theater streams movies from smartphones to the big screen

Puny screens of smartphones are no match for the giant display of the YouTube theater. Created by artist Aaron Jones, YoutubeTheater is a guerrilla theater where users can run videos from a smartphone onto a large screen. Smartphones can dock into the theater that takes advantage of public accessibility of wireless networks to project media from the phone onto a large screen. The theater is planned at the site of a garage in Detroit, where the existing wall will be used as a projection surface.
