These amazing Starcraft figures look like they might have been created with a dose of computer graphics. Well, they are not. All of these happen to be 1:1 scale papercraft models of the units you would see in Starcraft. They were created by a Korean fan (should have guessed that) going by the name of Constable.
Maldives has plans to build a floating golf course in the Indian Ocean. The 18-hole golf course will be built across three artificial islands, all inter connected by a series of underwater tunnels. The idea of this golf course may sound like one entrenched in needless luxury, but for Maldives, it is more of a necessity. The island nation is a series of coral reefs, with the highest point at just 2.3 meters above sea level, making the country an easy prey for rising sea levels. Maldives hopes to buy land from nearby countries to settle its population there, and hopes its primary source of income, tourism will help through the finances.
Artist Graem Whyte creates detailed miniature landscapes for miniature figures. The masterfully done pieces become truly appreciable when their aspect comes into play, making the works all the more impressive.
Street art from artist Mentalgassi intends to liven up city spaces by giving a more “human” face to the city. That inadvertently requires human faces cropping out on mundane city structures, some looking good, some just get plain creepy.
A boardgame that employs bullets in play should sound outlandish, but somehow, this chess set seems perfectly normal. After all, chess is a game of strategic warfare, so bullets could find place there easily. Etsy shop OldeWorldCC has a couple of interesting chess sets at its disposal. The board is made out of steel or wood, but the interest here obviously lies with the pieces that are made with bullets. No, you don’t get to shoot the other player after they loose.

It’s just a lucky few who can get the feat done right the first time, for us mere mortals though, cracking an egg is calling trouble. Fret not, my friends. You can always grab one of these Raw Egg Toppers and crack those pesky eggs, and do it in style. Then perhaps move on to learning how to actually crack eggs. Costs ~$57.
Casualties of War is a thoughtful series of toy soldiers from Dorothy Art Collective. Soldiers returning from war don’t always carry the scars on their bodies, but also on their minds. The story of these 7cm high plastic figures is told best by the description on Dorothy’s site:
Bulletproof teamed up with NWEN to create packaging for the 125th anniversary of the iconic Coca Cola brand. The commemorative 330ml cans have Varga girl prints that look back at the brand, while keeping the packaging fairly in line with modern times.
For all the love breasts get, would there be something that could be considered excessive? Could we ever tire of nipples? “Profound” as these questions may be, the answer would probably come easy after you take a good look at Nicola Costantino‘s collection titled Human Furriery. On display at a museum in Zurich, the collection includes clothes, shoes and accessories, all made from faux human skin, and patterned with human-like nipples. In a way, we do stop finding nipples awesome (or sexual) when they are on shoes and on soccer balls.
We’ve always felt the need for a tactile keyboard to go along touchscreen devices; one that keeps our pudgy fingers happy as well. there is only one fitting solution to that problem, a full-sized keyboard. WOW-Keys keyboard has laptop-style soft keys, and a dedicated dock for iPhone and iPod Touch. It doesn’t exactly go well with the mobile devices, but can work pretty well when you’re sitting comfortably in the den. To be available on May 24, the keyboard is priced at $100.
