Sleek Vizio computers weren't the only cool things we saw yesterday. At the same event, we also spied these "junk art" sculptures by artist Gabriel Dishaw. You've probably already seen Dishaw's microchip Nike sneakers, but these pieces, they're just bizarre — in an awesome way.
Here's an angle you don't see every day. (Unless you're a security camera or something.) Photographer Menno Aden installed a camera in the ceiling of living rooms, kitchens, bars, lobbies, elevators, subways and more, creating images that flatten out spaces we'd normally be familiar with, but never get to see like this. Think about it: what would your room really look like?
Drop dead gorgeous. Killer good looks. This new fly trap is a designer's dream and a summertime bug's worst nightmare all wrapped into one. The new designer fly trap with the glowing LED light is a little lamp that will look great on your deck, but packs a unique punch to keep the bugs away from your outdoor leisure time.
This little house is a unique art installation called "Fallen Star." It's got everything we'd want to look at — a perky, picket fence dream home that just happens todefy gravity. What's even more fun is its perfectly ironic location, the side of the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California in San Diego.
Most model kits are made from durable plastic and 3D printers these days and that's ok. But, if you are looking for a little something different, consider these new models that are constructed entirely out of paper. Simply color as you wish, and construct.
Gaming rigs may be all about the guts on the inside, but some folks turn their powerful machines into little monuments that celebrate the hobby. At the Computex tech expo in Taipei, tons of fetching mods were on display, from professionally done game and movie tie-ins, to custom hack jobs. Up top is a good example of the weird shapes a computer case can take. Down in the gallery are some more: from Iron Man to Borderlands 2, and even a case that adds what we can only guess is an anti-physical media missile array.
What do you do after playing as much Portal as you can? You make one for real. At least that's what this one gamer did when he created a portal loop in his bedroom courtesy of some Ikea mirrors and LED lights.
It's been quite a year for artificial plant life, but Singapore has really branched out with its garden of solar-powered super trees that will reach up to 50 meters high. The Bay South garden, which is filled with 18 of these trees, will open on June 29.
It's here. The self-making bed. Whether it is because you don't have time to make things tidy, or you can't be bothered to do it yourself it doesn't really matter. This bed will make itself in a mere 50 seconds.
These lights defy description, and I love that. They aren't traditional sculptures, they aren't quite lamps, or steampunk, or modern. They are all of that in one. They are incredible, handcrafted art each made of up to 200 individual steel and brass parts. They are "Machine Lights."
