I am not a watch connoisseur, but I know the Pininfarina name. The design firm has long collaborated with exotic carmakers like Ferrari to design some of the most awesome cars on the planet. Cars aren’t all Pininfarina is into though.
I really like products that are made out of stuff that most of us would never think to make them from. These new Triumph Motorcycles product prototypes are exactly what I mean. Working for an exhibition for the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, designers took various parts from Triumph motorcycles and used them to make other stuff you might see around the house.
I am a major car guy. I lean more towards the Mustang, but I can appreciate sweet cars for other brands like Chevy and the Camaro and the Corvette. I like the looks of the Corvette and once I am 60 and own a few more gold chains, I might buy one.
How interesting is the furniture in your house? Looking around, mine is pretty bland. Don’t get me wrong, it’s decent stuff for the most part, it’s just not terribly interesting. I mean, I don’t have an NES controller for a coffee table or anything.
You know what’s missing from doors these days? Keyholes big enough that you can actually look through. Back in the good old days, if you wondered what was going on behind a locked door, you’d just kneel down and take a look through the keyhole.
If there’s one thing I like about having irregular jobs, it’s not having to do the 9-to-5 grind every day.
Granted, I’ve had jobs that required I work these hours, and I generally hated it. Early to bed and early to rise might make a man healthy, wealthy and wise, but it also makes him grumpy.
This crazy brochure for a Star Wars-themed roofing company comes courtesy of designer Milos Cakovan. It definitely makes the whole idea of roofing your house a bit more fun.
“This is the roof you’re looking for”, that’s what the slogan of the brochure claims.
Are you total Star Wars fan? Well, then this should be right up your alley. Here are some detailed blueprints of the Millennium Falcon, and it does show that Han Solo skimped on some details in order to make the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs.
I hate cleaning stuff. I generally wait until there is enough toothpaste caked on my sink that I can’t lean over it without getting dirty. I also hate doing dishes and once went two weeks eating from napkins and paper towels to avoid dishes.
When I was a kid, my brother and I would make tents out of a sheet and a box fan when our parents wouldn’t let us get out a real tent. All you had to do was put the sheet over the fan and you ended up with a ready-made inflatable tent.
I am not a card person. I rarely read them if you send them to me and if you don’t send them to me I won’t think twice about it. There are some people who are card people though and if you are the sort of card person that likes to send them, you need to get some of these awesome Mechanicards to give out.
We see plenty of crazy wristwatches that surface from Tokyoflash and other makers of timepieces. We don’t see too many wall clocks with a crazy designs though. This clock is dubbed the Order in Chaos clock by the designer, and as you can see, the numbers look very chaotic.
Ah, Robocop. Needless to say that I’ve watched the movie quite a few times and I found it interesting to see that someone had done an illustration of what the insides of Robocop might actually look like.
I am not a Mac user. I had a MacBook once but I used Windows on it and eventually tired of messing with Boot Camp and sold the thing. I have never felt the desire to own a Mac desktop, because I like to roll my own custom computers.
