Runes Rings

Supposed magic and divinatory power of runes lead many people on their way, from simple superstition to making important decisions.

Sanity is Over-rated Anyway: Reverse Heels

High heels are high fashion, but things tend to quickly tumble if they aren’t made exactly the way they were supposed to be.

This pedal-less bicycle takes all the useful out of the bicycle, and reduces it to a very ridiculous burden. With this pedal-less bicycle, the user has the frame on their shoulders, they are supposed to run gather speed and then freely suspend themselves while the bicycle runs for maybe a few meters.
