(Via)Belgian artist and illustrator Stefaan De Croock aka Strook pressure washed this awesome piece on a mossy wall outside of the STUK art center in Leuven. The non-destructive mural is all that more impressive considering it was done completely improvised without a sketch for reference, and it was the first time he’d used pressurized water to boot.
Conceptual artist Florentijin Hofman brought his gargantuan Rubber Duck artwork to Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong. The huge inflatable duck measures nearly 46 feet tall and 55 feet long and is shown above being pulled by a tug boat only a fraction of its size. [Read more...]

Forget Google Glass; the tech giant is in the footwear business now. Or at least it was at the SXSW series of film, interactive, and music festivals in Austin on Monday. Together with Adidas, the technology giant unveiled its concept “Talking Shoe,” a smart sneaker designed to get people off the couch and exercising. But Google didn’t just see fit to give the shoe the usual moving parts (an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a pressure sensor, Bluetooth connectivity). The sneaker also boasts a personality, one that is alternatively cheering and jeering depending on your level of activity. Peep the video [Read more...]

Over the years flash drives have become smaller and more portable, but this set of four 1GB drives packaged in a business card-sized configuration is among the most inventive designs we’ve seen yet.

Best of all, each individual drive can be torn off 1 gigabyte at a time for easy tear and share use. And since it’s made of paper, labeling is as easy as grabbing a pen and writing directly onto the surface of each tab. Check out more [Read more...]

Rather, in June 2012, she saw a photo on the Internet of two pieces of toast that looked like a bear and a fox and she wondered if she could copy it.
She did and almost immediately people started to take notice. “I got good feedback, so I tested a few of my own ideas,” she tells us. “I found it to be a fun way for me to combine my interests for art and food, plus the chance to exercise my creative side.” To view more Click here
With his “Duet for Leaves & Turntable“, Diego Stocco has experienced the use of tree leaves to produce sounds and then music. Using a turntable to rub leaves of different kinds, the Italian artist was able to generate music based on sound sentences. “I noticed the equally spaced ridges on the plate and got an idea for something else. For about an hour I recorded short musical phrases by rubbing leaves against the turntable (the type of leaf, angle, pressure and fold determined the sound), then I combined the different takes together…Dope.

After schooling New Yorkers on etiquette via numerous unsanctioned interventions, artist Jay Shells channeled his love of hip hop music and his uncanny sign-making skills towards a brand new project: “Rap Quotes.”
For this ongoing project, Shells created official-looking street signs quoting famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations. He then installed them at those specific street corners and locations.

The door knob is just so… normal. It might interest some people to have one that departs from the normal, even if it may look like a hand extending out of the door. Hand-le is a shiny hand that might not be as pragmatic and useful as a common door knob, and yet do the function with a flair that the door knob might not so easily attain. Costs $95
