If there’s one thing I can say for sure, it’s that this “toy” is going to make kids very, very happy. Obviously, what kid slash grown-up won’t be happy with his very own pirate ship. That’s about as cool as playhouses get. And here are the highlights: “a cutlass-bearing skeleton lashed to the bowsprit, a boarded-over cannonball hole, crossed bones that form a window pane, and a crow’s nest with Calico Jack Rackam’s Jolly Roger flag.” The ship house rests above a hollowed out 5-feet diameter tree trunk and has access via a climbing net and staircase. Pirate House Ship toy costs
an arm and a leg $27000.
The Dala vinyl player has a unique bird-like shape that apparently works very well for the audio output from the system. Making use of flat membrane speaker technology, Dala has “fins” or wing-like structures on either side of the platter. Each fin is a thin membrane speaker, and each with a size to work best with a set range of frequencies. A tiny, non-intrusive knob on the system works as a wireless controller. Dala vinyl player has been designed by Bradley Paulet.
Billboards happen to be omnipotent, and when the graphic has served its use, it mostly ends up landing in some landfill. Malaysia-based Etsy user NottyPooch puts these billboards to good use, creating wallets, MacBook sleeves, coaster sets and other similar things. Given the size of billboards and crafty execution of these products, they have no clear sign of the product they once advertised, transforming into a clean, trendy package.
Local authorities and a local advertising firm in Japan have come together to organize the World’s first marathon for robots. The toy-sized robots will cover 26 miles by completing 423 laps of an indoor track. Operators are allowed to change batteries and motors for the robots, but if any of the bots falls down, it will have to get up on its own to continue in the race. The marathon is expected to complete in about 4 days.
Inspired by Transformer 2′s Megatron tank, a Chinese man built this enormous replica that weighs 5,000kg (11,000lb) and is made mostly out of scrap metal. Ever since the man has made this marvel that rivals the one built by explosion-god Michael Bay, he insists he be called “Steel Legend.” We call “whatever.”
