Unlike its biggest competitor, the Sony Playstation 4 ($400) isn’t a one-room-entertainment system. Sure, it has all the things we expect from a next-generation console: a blazing-fast processor, lots of memory, and killer graphics (thanks to an 8-core x86 chip and 8 GB of GDDR5 RAM). And it has all the video services you’d expect, though it won’t connect to your cable, or respond to gestures and voice commands. But it does have something, in addition to the cheaper price point, that Playstation fans and maybe some converts will love. Sony places none of the restrictions on used games that its competitor enforces, and it doesn’t require you to be online to play. We like that a lot.

A fan of Nike Air Max, designer Joost Goudriaan created the shoes out of delicious, delicious chocolate. Details on the chocolate sneakers are impressive; you can even see the thread and sewing that would go with the shoes. Goudriaan has made two variants of the shoes, one from milk chocolate and the other from white chocolate with a pure chocolate sole. Perhaps it is the color, but the details are much better visible in the brown chocolate shoe. The sculptures are a series of ten unique variations, each at Air Max size 10.

The unusual shape of the banana pool table has to be a little bit of a challenge and a departure from the usual for regular pool players. Its value beyond a novelty is debatable, but we are sure most players won’t mind trying a hand on this one. Banana pool table is the work of designer Cléon Daniel who completed the table with the help of a retired carpenter. For a more detailed look [Read more...]

(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. Developed by Kurt Rampton and the BOLTgroup, the gadget goes by the name GIGS.2.GO and is constructed with 100% post-consumer molded paper pulp with zero plastic. 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...]
She couldn’t have expected it. You see, for Ida Skivenes it started off simply. She didn’t start posting photos on Instagram to gain thousands of followers or to become a widely popular food artist. 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.
