Olaaf Mooij‘s mobile sculpture the Braincar is pretty much what it sounds like. The artist has a thing for making cars into mobile sculptures, we’ve already seen the DJ Mobile, but the brain car is slightly different. It won’t rock out, but we’re guessing it does think pretty hard. With the sculpture, Mooij gave the car a brain to experience the numerous journeys undertook and the places a car visits. Well of course, the car ain’t doing any thinking, but whenever we see one with a huge brain, we know what they are thinking.
If you trained your dog well enough, it probably won’t mind bringing you the newspaper or even the TV remote. There’s just something endearing about that. If that ain’t going to happen, get one of these polyresin dogs with outstrethed arms, and a desire for holding the remote. Plus, it won’t poop on the carpet. Costs $9.
Those of us conscious about our diet would probably let go a little if the fat could be sucked out of the food we were about to eat. The fat magnet claims to remove fat from the surface of foods, all you have to do is skim the magnet at the surface and it would absorb all the fat. We’re not sure how exactly this works or if it is going to be worth any good at all, but we guess the premise alone would get this product a lot of buyers. Cost $13.
Well, no comments on that.
Europe’s most active volcano, Mount Etna has sprung into action again and is spewing ash and lava. For now, the lava has been flowing quietly into a valley and there does not seem to be any imminent danger. Flights from Catania’s Fontanarossa airport had to be suspended for some time due to volcanic ash. At 3,295 metres (10,810 feet), Mount Etna is the highest active volcano in Europe.
Most of us browse the web with numerous tabs open, sometimes only to find that one of those tabs has decided to blare off loud music. It maybe one of the pesky ads, a video set on autorun, a musical note on the website or the other dozen problems that come along. Then ensues a hunt in the open tabs as we try to find the source of the noise and shut the sucker up for good.
It might work, but this is not quite an elegant solution, but there is one that may come along with the use of an extension for Chrome called MuteTab. As this all suggests, the extension does the job of hunting down the culprit tab spewing the noise, and puts up a musical note on it for the user to see and take appropriate action. That ought to work.
Glow in the dark jeans, they shine, you shine. Words cannot define how popular they would make you, and how quick you could get laid with a pair like these. Don’t get fooled by their appearance as regular jeans, a phosphorescent coating to the fabric would set it to glow anytime it is left in the dark. Costs $240.
Parked in the sun, how hot can the car get?
We like to think that walking inside a metal dress that can easily weigh 30 to 50 kilos would be hardwork for anyone. But science my friends, does not lend itself to such thinking, ergo, the good people at the University of Leeds decided to put a guy into medieval armor, and had him run on a treadmill. Not quite astonishingly, they found the person in the armor had to use way more energy to move around, and could be tired easily.
What’s the fun in having a whole ton of money and flashing it around for mere mortals on earth to see, when you could etch it on the ground and let the gods look at it from the heavens. Arab billionaire Shiekh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan decided to leave his mark on the world and had his name written in a way that it is visible from space. Each of the alphabets is about a thousand feet across and nearly a kilometer high.
