Basketball is one of my favorite sports, although that doesn’t mean that I’m necessarily good at it. For the most part, I enjoy watching people play, probably because most of the shots I throw up end up being air balls.
Quirky outoor sofas are nothing new. Remember Softa, which combined the look of indoor sofas and the durability of outdoor furniture? Fast on its heels is the Giant Clothespin Bench by Italian architects Michela and Paolo Baldessari, which as you can see and read, is fashioned in the shape of a giant vintage clothespin.
Back in the day, all a guy (or girl) had to do was buy a ring and get down on one knee to propose to the love of their loves. Things have gotten more complicated these days, and proposals are no exception.
If you thought the remote-controlled trash can was neat, wait ’til you see this ingenious invention. It actually catches anything you throw in its vicinity, aim be damned. It wasn’t made in Soviet Russia though – this one’s a Japanese hack.
People have been known to wear strange things around their waist. It all began with the computer mouse belt, which featured an actual mouse as the buckle. Then there was Volt Buckle gadget charger, which had a plug integrated right into the buckle.
I’m not the best Settlers of Catan player, I’m going to be honest. By “not the best,” I mean that I always lose. By “honest,” I mean that I’m a lying little rat in the sewer, because NOBODY EVER BEATS ME AT ANYTHING.
Monkeys. Love ’em or hate ’em, they’ll always be the one animal species that’s closest to the human race. So what could be more fitting than sitting in a chair that’s made with the monkey’s favorite food in mind?
There were a string of weird occurrences in the last couple of months involving some people going stark crazy because of the things that they managed to do. It’s too gruesome to describe in detail, but here’s one work that sums it all up: cannibalism.
If you’ve ever tried to do tie-dye projects, then you know they can be messy and exhausting if you’re not careful. Plus, the results are unpredictable, so sometimes you can end up with neat threads while you might get some blah-looking patterns for all the other times.
Educational videogames are nothing new, but they’re often nothing to write about either. But an upcoming DSiWare game lets players harness the awesome power of algebra, even if they don’t know what algebra is. The game is called Ace Mathician!
I know it’s a primitive dice game, but I’ve always loved Yahtzee. I think it’s because it’s basically like playing poker, but with dice. And what better thing to combine with my compulsive gambling habit but a drunk-ass, foul-mouthed, beer-swilling bending robot?
A couple of years ago we saw a glove that can play rock paper scissors. While that glove was smart – it learns from your patterns – it could still lose. This robot hand on the other hand will win 100% of the time, all the time.
Some multi-purpose things have a lot of alternate uses, and pretty good ones, too, like the shopping bag that doubles as a helmet. Then there’s Nendo’s Rootote Bag, which has a more novel second use, apart from being a bag, it’s also a puppet show.
