Video: Super Mario Bros. Played In A Box?

It’s so simple but cool as hell. Vintage!

Using a Teagueduino and a few inputs and outputs, we put together a physical side-scrolling video game. To control it, there’s a knob on the side. As time advances the game gets faster and faster — can you avoid all the obstacles and make it to the end?

INSA Makes Girls On Bikes Look Hot!

INSA   Girls On Bikes

I’ve seen these pictures floating around the internets and always wondered who took them. Now that I finally found out and saw the whole set I’m effing elated. Come on now, hot girls on bikes?! You can’t go wrong.

During his successful exhibition in Hong Kong, INSA unveiled the completed set of his ongoing public installation project, Girls On Bikes. Now the rest of the world will get to see the 12 individual photos that work together as a unified piece. The seemingly random images seeks a deeper meaning on how we perceive ownership of public space, represented by his mural, of sexuality, represented by overtly sexualized female presence and of belongings, represented by the bicycles. Majority of the photographs were taken in London, however there are some exceptions with San Fransisco, Ghent, Los Angeles and Hong Kong mixing things up.

Veuve Clicquot Origami??


What we have here is Clicq’up Origami Ice Bucket by Mathias van de Walle. The whole idea is pretty damn cool. The only I problem I have is that Veuve Clicquot has ran it course, at least with me. Every brunch or dinner someone wants to order a damn bottle. Don’t get me wrong its tasty, but I’m over it. Now I’m on the quest to find another overpriced bottle of champagne to fulfill my inner smugness.

Video: 65,000 CDs Made This

“WasteLandscape” is a 500 square meters artificial undulating landscape covered by an armor of 65 000 unsold or collected CDs, which have been sorted and hand-sewn. It is well known that CDs are condemned to gradually disappear from our daily life, and to later participate in the construction of immense open-air, floating or buried toxic waste reception centers.Made of petroleum, this reflecting slick of CDs forms a still sea of metallic dunes: the art work’s monumental scale reveals the precious aspect of a small daily object.

Would You Drink Alcohol Packaged Like This?


Created by the artist Jorn from Düsseldorf, these bottle have a new spin to them. At first I was skeptical then realized I could drop one of these and it wouldn’t shatter. But they do seem a bit cumbersome, outside of that they’re actually pretty dope.

Nike Chairman Mark Parker’s Treasure Chest Of An Office

Nike chairman Mark Parker’s office is a sport fanatic and hipster’s wet dream rolled into one. Talk about nostalgia. Out of all the offices I’ve seen, whether its Google, Skype, or the Nike Campus, this one takes the cake. I’ve never enjoyed looking at so many dope collectors items in one sitting.
