Rain Level Boots Measure Your Misery

I don’t live in a particularly flood susceptible area. But believe it or not, Jersey has its share of flood zones. I’ve never been in flood waters that went above the soles of my shoes, but from what I hear, it can’t be a fun experience. One thing I know for sure about precipitation levels is that meteorologists cannot be ... Read More »

Homer Simpson iPhone Vinyl Sticker: Mmm… Smartphone

Etsy seller Apple Jam designed this genius Homer Simpson iPhone sticker. While I’ve never seen Homer eat a piece of fruit, I’m not quite sure this counts. Mmm… technolicious. Thought we bet he’ll be saying “Do’h” when it comes out the other end. Shattered glass? No thank you. The sticker is sold out for now, but if you bug Apple ... Read More »

Twitter Illustrated: Humorous Illustrations of Actual Tweets

Illustrator Kiersten Essenpreis takes funny tweets and makes them even funnier on her genius website, Twaggies. Whenever inspiration strikes, Essenpresis designs clever illustrations depicting particularly humorous or inspired tweets. Essenpries has done about 90 illustrations so far and hasn’t showed any indication of stopping. Now I just need to think of a tweet clever enough to be preserved until the ... Read More »

Banana Boats For the Maritime-Loving Monkey

Not only is this the perfect way to adorn the cage of any monkey that’s developed a love for maritime history, but if bearded children folk singers are to be trusted, can also make calls to Beijing-jing-jing-jing. The Banana Boats by designer Jacob Dahlstrup celebrate centuries of sea living, fruit, desserts and Polish a capella bands. While I don’t know ... Read More »

Take One Down, Pass It Around, 120 Bikes on the Wall

A bicycle shop in Altlandsberg, Germany has taken a unique direction with their advertising. To assure their store gets noticed, the store owners decided to cover the outer walls of their shop with about 120 bicycles mounted on the building’s exterior. The bikes replace the traditional sign, but somehow, we feel the residents will get the point. Link [via] Read More »

Zipper Boat Unzips The Naughty Ocean’s Pants

Japanese artist Yasuhiro Suzuki built this boat to look as if it were unzipping the water if seen from an airplane or helicopter. The effect is quite good and the ocean seems to love it, dirty slut that it is. Seriously, a $250 dinner and you never call? Screw you ocean! Virgin my ass. After the jump check out the ...

Freddy Mercury and Queen Rock Out in Papercraft

The Beatles might have predated Queen, in both rock and papercraft history, but the influence of Freddy Mercury and his band of merry men cannot be ignored, nor denied. To celebrate the band’s eternal impact on music, People Too created this awesome papercraft recreation of Queen doing what they did best: strutting their stuff on stage. Queen always struck a ...

Seabreacher X Takes Shark Week to a Whole New Level

While this isn’t the first-time that Seabreacher has introduced a trailblazing, adrenaline-gushing, limit-pressing submersible water vehicle, this is by far their most extreme creation yet. The Seabreacher X starts where the Seabreacher J left off. Now with a Shark-inspired body rather than that of a dolphin, the Seabreacher X boosts the performance with a 260hp supercharged engine, allowing the vehicle ... Read More »

Amazing Man-Made Mini Landscapes

If you didn’t look close you might not have noticed, and even then you’d be hard pressed to realize that the above photograph was completely man-made using cotton, salt, cooked sugar, tin foil, feathers and canvas; a completely scaled diorama model custom molded for the camera. New Jersey-based (so automatically he’s a genius) photographer Matthew Albanese uses painstaking preparation and ... Read More »
