Mike Bouchet’s shopping cart lounger for our world of consumerism

Created by artist/designer Mike Bouchet, this is almost like the second, much more lovable edition of the shopping cart. Its a shopping cart, its a lounger, and it is named Sun Lounger. It is just a bare-boned structure right now, but the artist does have plans for a few additions, like armrests and seats to really make a lounger out of this chair.

Magic chair stands despite cut-off legs

This chair right in front of you, ladies and gentlemen, is magic. It stands strong, so you could sit on it, and wonder how in the world does a chair without legs manage to be useful. Elementary, my dear Watson, the answer is concealed as a thick plate in the carpet. The steel plate helps the cantilever chair to stay in place, while the stubs give the appearance of the chair having been cut off at the legs. Designed by Peter Bristol.

Designer chainsaws for the truly fashionable lumberjack

Lumberjacks are badass dudes bringing down trees with their badass chainsaws. But who said badassery couldn’t go with a dose of smooth edges and fashion. The Nok Gear chainsaw is a sleek, slightly contemporary design that takes the edge off those ugly conventional chainsaws. Designers of the chainsaw also claim that the Nok is lightweight, and they’ve drenched it with designer cues to make it look cute. Wait… cute? I thought we were talking badass here; there goes the entire premise of a superhuman lumberjack.

Researchers find ‘No Smoking’ signs make smokers want to light up

Apparently with nothing better to do, researchers at Oxford University studied the effect of No Smoking signs on smokers and came back to say the signs don’t work. In fact, the signs make smokers crave for a cigarette. It would seem the sign reminds smoker of cigarettes, and the sheer number of signs a smoker might come across increases their desire for the stick. According to our very own researchers [citation needed], another factor that makes smokers want to light up is blogging about smoking. Now if you’ll excuse me, I got a cigarette to smoke.

Angry looking Cectek King Cobra ATV

Perhaps the Cectek King Cobra ATV didn’t quite have an enjoyable trip while coming from Taiwan. That would explain its super angry face. Or maybe it just wants to pretend being macho. It has a liquid cooled, four-stroke 500EFI Engine, a V-belt automatic CVT transmission with knob shift, to go along its 2WD and 4WD modes. There’s no price tag yet, and you better not ask the angry King Cobra about it.
