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.

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.

Adidas Cellphone Looks and Feels Like a Sneaker

More collectible novelty then serious contender, Adidas introduced a branded cellphone that resembles an Adidas sneaker. The backside of the clamshell device is textured like a rubber treaded sole, while the front of the phone dons the classic Adidas stripes, looking much like the top of the classic Adidas sneaker. Outdated? You bet. But if you’re an Adidas freak or ... Read More »

The Four Velociraptors of the Apocalypse

A single Velociraptor might not have been much of a match for a Tyrannosaurs Rex, but a quartet of raptors with an evil appetite could take on the world. The Velociraptors of the Apocalypse t-shirt put an end to the debate on what caused the global extinction of the dinosaurs. Recent scientific discoveries suggest that Chuck Norris might have had ...
