Despite the amount of content I consume via digital screens, I still like to dust off the occasional paperback when I’m feeling the need for something more tactile. While I store my books in an an ordinary IKEA bookshelf, I’d much rather have one of these shelves that looks like a giant face.
Some things aren’t quite what they seem.
Take the Sugar House, for instance. It looks like a snow globe, although a relatively simple one as it only features a lonely, white house in the middle of the globe.
If you have kids you know that they will climb all over anything. Furniture, playground equipment, you when you’re trying to watch TV… They are crazy balls of spazzy energy. Well, now you can give them a reason to climb all over you.
Awwww. It’s a little Batman sitting on a Bat-Throne. This would definitely be the best seat in the house for kids. This was a school project created by James Todd for his 3D design class at Stoke Damerel Community College.
Watches can be really cool, and a good watch can elevate a guy’s attire from good to gooooooood. The problem is that really cool ones often , like the Maurice LaCroix Roue Carrée Seconde (my personal favorite), often have really uncool price tags (like the Roue Carree’s $9,900 price tag).
Not everyone carries an umbrella or raincoat on them at all times, especially if the forecast is clear and the day started out bright and sunny. However, what most people carry with them is a backpack or bag of some sort, and that’s where the Funnell Backpack comes in.
Bookworms will be pleased to know that there’s another way to store and display books aside from shelves. In addition to furniture that incorporates space where you can arrange your books (like the Sunflower Chair), there are installations like the Hanging Book Rack that lets you do it with more flair.
Ride a bike, slice a pizza. You won’t be able to do this on a regular bike, but you will be able to do so using one of these clever bicycle wheel pizza cutters. Your fingers will be the ones doing the riding though, unless you’re the size of Alice after she drank the potion from the bottle with the “Drink Me” label.
He’s got the whole world in his hands, but this watch has the entire solar system on its face. It’s not just a plain old picture of the sun and planets, either. It’s an actual, moving model of planets moving around the sun – and in real-time, too!
Babies are expensive. Not the actual babies (of course, nobody goes shopping for babies. And if they do, that’s illegal) but the cost of raising them and providing them with not only their needs, but their wants as well.
You might not realize it yet, but the sun – or rather, the amount of sunlight you can expect for the day – plays a big part in most of your plans. Nobody wants to drive out to the beach when the sun is expected to set early, or trek a mountain while they’re losing daylight.
I tried working as a cashier at a friend’s store once, and I have to say, it was tough. You would think that it’s all fun and games, pointing the scanning gun at the barcodes of items that people have bought, but it’s harder than you think.
A couple of months ago we saw a 3D printer that prints in full color by breaking a 3D model into very thin slices, printing each slice on separate sheets of paper then cutting the slices out of the paper and gluing them together.
So this isn’t really called the Octopus Couch, but it might as well be because this is exactly what a couch look like… if it drew inspiration from an octopus.
Designed by the Fernando and Humberto Campana, it’s actually called the Aster Papposus Sofa.
When the Sun comes out, it’s time to slather on the sunblock. It’s also time to put on your Wearable Solar outfit – because while it’s not the most conservative looking clothing, it’s definitely one of the most functional, avant garde pieces you can wear.
