MB&F partnered with L’Epée 1839 to create a machine that looks beautiful and does a whole lot of things. The Fifth Element is a classic mechanical weather station, like the ones you would expect to see before the digital age went full swing. In true MB&F style, The Fifth Element is more than just a set of mechanical instruments clubbed together – it is a mechanical sculpture with incredible craftsmanship.
Japanese modeler Kamonohashizokei creates these amazing, stunning, (insert more adjectives here), realistic animal heads that are mind-blowingly impressive. The realistic look could have us imagine that there is at least some organic/taxidermy base the artist works from. Nope, it’s all synthetic.
It is a concept, an idea that exists as a rendering; it could be many things, but it chose to be a keyboard. As a new concept keyboard, it looked at the wide choices of names it could have, wondering if simply being called keyboard would be enough. “No” said the booming voice of its creator, giving it the name F**ktron.

Here’s a map of the world with literal translations for country names. Of course, take some grains of salt along because not all names are translatable, and not all translations are correct. Creators of this map were thoughtful enough to throw in a Google Spreadsheet of their research for you to dive in. Enjoy!
Who thought crochet slippers could be that cool! Panzer tank slippers will keep your feet warm, and make it perfectly normal to make pew pew boom boom! noises while you walk. Two inches of padding will ensure your feet are well cushioned. Oh, and these are available in a variety of colors, unlike the “real” Panzer tanks. Available on Etsy for $89.
The radically designed Karlmann King SUV presents itself as a “Ground Stealth Fighter”. Although it reminds us more of the good old low polygon count games of the ’90s. Of course, those games had restrictions on their graphic rendering, this SUV takes this look by choice. The makers of the SUV claim that it takes 2000 designers, developers, and engineers from all over the world to build this behemoth.
Ask WTF is he going to do about the car smell and upholstery. Understandably, that wasn’t on top of Gavin Shoebridge’s list when he made the choice of having a good, homecooked meal on his camping trips. The DIY project turns impressive when you consider he built this kitchen in the tiny boot space of a 2011 Peugeot iOn.
