Colin Furze has gone and done another crazy awesome thing. No surprise there. This time it was all to celebrate his YouTube channel reaching another big milestone: four million subscribers! So how does one commemorate such an achievement?
If you have a penchant for tornados and fire, Kickstarter has your product right here. This thing is called the Flameflex and it promises to allow you to own and harness the power of a tiny fire tornado.
The weather – it’s that thing that you can easily confirm by looking out the window or literally typing “weather” on Google, yet somehow has a billion apps dedicated to it. There are so many free ways to get a weather forecast that paying $199 (USD) for it sounds insane.
I’m from Texas, so if you tell me the weather at some far away location I am traveling is hot, I can relate. If you tell me it’s really cold wherever I am heading I might have a hard time wrapping my mind around anything colder than freezing.
Has anyone ever told you that you’ve always got your head in the clouds? Daydreaming isn’t a bad thing because it stimulates your imagination, just as long as you don’t lose sight of reality.
If people stopped dreaming, they’d stop thinking outside of the box and unusually amazing art installations like Cloud Pink wouldn’t come to be.
After seeing Aladdin whisk Jasmine off to the clouds and around the world on his magic carpet, I’ve always wondered what it would feel like to hold puffs of clouds in my hands. Not that you’d be able to really hold onto them, since they’re essentially just water vapor with particulate matter and dust, but anyway…
Designer Lubo Majer took things a little further with Cirrus, a cloud-themed set of furniture that lets you lay down not on a bed of roses, but on a bed of clouds.
There’s something magical about being able to control the weather, especially if there’s a way to improve it. Personally, I’d like to have some sort of device in my backyard so I can make sure that it won’t rain when I barbecue in the summer.
I do like weather apps, but the strange thing is that when I open the ones that I have on my smartphone, they all end up saying something slightly different. While this could be problematic, it would probably all be solved by one weather app with better predictions.
After living in New Orleans for a number of years of my life, I can speak from experience that hurricanes can be serious business. So the more we can learn about how hurricanes and tropical storms work, the more prepared that we can be for disaster, and the more lives and property can be spared from nature’s fury.
Here’s a clever upgrade to the everyday toaster – a kitchen appliance that can burn the current weather forecast onto the face of your toast each morning. Designed by Nathan Brunstein, the Jamy is a conceptual design for a “smart toaster” that has a built-in weather application which could scorch the forecast into bread.
You don’t usually see much creativity in the design of rain gutters and downspouts. They all pretty much look the same to me (when the bums in the alley aren’t stealing them for scrap metal). But here’s a cool design that adds a touch of whimsy to the bottom of a downspout, taking the deluge of water that pours out and turning it into a little storm of its own.
Whenever I check the weather on my phone, I open up a couple of different apps, I always find it funny that none of them give exactly the same information. That being said, I don’t currently use an app like Partly Cloudy, which definitely looks like an interesting way to check the weather forecast.
These days, with the heat and the rain, it always makes sense to open up a weather app before you leave home to check out what the temperature will be like. These two new apps are elegant and minimal, easy to use and best of all free.
