Normally, electronics require circuit board, electricity, and various other parts in order to function. So I can say with 100% certainty that gadgets made from concrete will not function no matter how much you want them to.
What is the deadliest statue ever? All of them, because they can fall and crush you. But one is even deadlier than the rest. This Knife Angel statue was built from over 100,000 knives which were confiscated by UK police.
Despite the fact that they’re not actually potato chips, but are some kind of smooshed up potato mush, Pringles are still pretty tasty. As you know, these crispy snacks come stacked in a cylindrical can, with Pringles’ iconic mustachioed mascot on front.
Artist Takanori Aiba has elevated the art of miniature sculptures to a new level. His intricate structures replicate dreamlike architecture, complete with tiny vehicles, umbrellas, street lamps, flags, and other details.
Takanori crafts his models from paper, plastic, acrylic resin, paint and rocks.
There’s something about skull art that I find really intriguing. Perhaps it’s that skulls are something that all of us have in common, or it’s just that they remind us of our mortality. I’m really digging this skull sculpture, made from recycled bits of metal.
A group of LEGO builders recently built a giant 8-foot by 4-foot LEGO Han Solo in carbonite. Because why not? It was made to promote the 2020 release of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo aka E3.
It’s awesome to see people build big things with LEGO bricks. Chevrolet teamed up with students from the Oxford Community School’s First LEGO League, and Detroit’s Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary’s A World in Motion Program to unveil a full-size replica of the Silverado truck made entirely of LEGO bricks.
If there’s one critter that I think universally gives people the creeps, it’s the scorpion. While only a very small percentage are deadly enough to kill humans, they’re still pretty nasty looking creatures, and not the type of thing I’d want to run into while walking around the desert.
2001: A Space Odyssey is a classic in just about every sense of the word. Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke created a true masterpiece. Douglas Trumbull’s miniatures and visual effects even rival today’s movies. It’s definitely one of my favorite films of all time.
There’s something about art made with rudimentary low-polygon count forms that I find very appealing. I think it’s because it harkens back to early 1990s video games like Virtua Fighter and the original Tomb Raider. If you like the style as much as I do, then check out this awesome collection of papercraft art from Oxygami.
Some people really love Japanese instant ramen noodles, but these people have been missing out by just eating them. Did you know that you can sculpt with them? Taishi Arimura does just that, making instant noodle warrior sculptures.
I’ve seen some pretty amazing case mods over the years, but this life-size Iron Man PC might just be the most incredible PC build yet. Pro system builder Jengki Wmp of World Media Plus created this life-size sculpture of Iron Man in his Mk.
When I was a kid, people who could solve a Rubik’s Cube were a rare thing. Nowadays, there are entire leagues dedicated to solving them as quickly as possible, and even guys who can solve them while wakesurfing or juggling.
Despite it being a little trippy, Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are is still one of my favorite books from my childhood. As our young protagonist Max enters the world of the Wild Things, he encounters a variety of wondrous and scary looking beasts, yet manages to win them over and become their king.
I think glass is one of the most amazing art mediums out there. It’s really difficult and dangerous to work with, but in the right hands, it can create amazing, intricate forms. If you’re into collecting art glass, but want something a little different, then check out these sculptures I spotted over on Etsy.
If I learned anything from Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s that we all need a totem, lest we might actually be stuck in a dream within a dream. If I had to choose one, I think I’d go with a top too, but something a bit cooler than the one he had in Inception.
