Nature’s Night Lights

Ryan was showing me some video of a hornet killing a cicada whilst we discussed posts about bugs. Then, I suddenly stumbled upon this video of a glowing trilobite beetle.

Shitting and Knitting

This is a knitted roll of toilet paper. If you thought that was funny, look closely. It has eyes and a little mouth, thus giving life to an otherwise inanimate roll of wool. Want one?

December is almost upon us, which means you can expect to see a whole bunch of Christmas and Hanukkah decorations like this 5.5 tall, 9 wide LED menorah. Who says you’ve got to be Jewish to enjoy the festival of lights? The LEDs are controlled via a potentiometer, so you’ll have to make sure you light the candles in the ...

A Mobile Bench That Borrows From A Wheelbarrow

You’d think this mobile park bench was made by IKEA with its simple design and detailed instruction set for how to build it. Ironically, the creator is artist Rogier Martens, who happens to be Dutch. Did you know the parent company of IKEA is a Dutch-registered foundation known as INGKA Holding? Coincidence? I think not. This is the ideal park ...
