Super Mario Crossover game has the best characters, sheer awesomeness

Super Mario Crossover game is well, Super Mario with an awesome twist. The game allows you to select players from your favorite games, so you could choose Link, Mega Man, Simon, Samus, and Conta’s Bill R. Playing the game with these characters is amazing, but Bill almost appears super human in this game, all that firepower sure helps and nothing can really get in his way. Though he does have his limits with jumps, but the game allows you to choose players after every life, and every level. Plus, you can continue the game from the same point where it was over, which is good. You can play the game on Newgrounds or on World Famous Design Junkies.

Circular Walking Bookshelf for the hamster humans

Humans can’t simply run inside wheels like hamsters do, we have more developed brains and are civilized. Ergo, we need to walk poignantly on these wheels, preferably while reading a book with more books at hand. The circular walking bookshelf from designer David Garcia drives the point home.

All this knitting machine needs is wind

Wind power isn’t all that easy to harvest, especially when you don’t intend to put up giant turbines over huge areas. That however, does in no way mean that small wind turbines cannot be put to good, practical uses. This innovative Wind Knitting Machine draws on the power of the wind to knit scarves.

Light Bulb Terrarium is a cute setting for plants

Plants growing inside a light bulb sound kind of cool, and with that, we have summed up the USP of this thing. Growing inside each light bulb is a pair of tillandsia plants, while the “soil” here is preserved reindeer moss with river stones, all held in place by polyester resin. You will have to remove the top of the bulb every week and sprinkle some water to keep the plants healthy. Costs $45.

Amazing (Interactive?) Videos

You may have seen these videos before, but the magic it does is quite interesting. The videos go out of the frame to take on the entire screen in a very interesting way. The first one is the Wario Land – Shake It video that came into being for the game’s appearance on Wii, while the second is an advertisement, titled “And Then There Was Salsa”. Both videos work best on their own pages, so click the links above to watch them.

Twitwee clock has the Twitter bird replace the cuckoo


The Twitwee clock is not some old-fashioned cuckoo clock, but it’s one with a Twitter twist. For starters, the cuckoo bird has gone away to maker room for the Twitter bird. Also, rather than come out to chirp every hour, the Twitwee clock responds to a specific word, hashtag, or a username. When this happens, the bird comes out to cuckoo, and the tweet in question is displayed on the screen. The clock has been created by Haroon Baig. Another pic and video after the jump.
