    This is a Kickstarter for the $17 (retail: $30) Wine Glass Mask, a wine glass contoured to fit your face for maximum taste and aroma. It is shaped like an oxygen mask!!
    "The complex taste of a wine is a combination of smells and flavors. Wine Glass Mask™ was designed to focus the bouquet and concentrate the smell of fruits, spices, herbs and flowers while controlling the flow of oxygen. As you breathe in you notice an intensified aroma because none of your experience is lost.
    As red wine breathes wine molecules combine with nitrogen and oxygen in the air. The venturi nozzles on the front of the Wine Glass Mask™ reduce the flow of oxygen and nitrogen and increase their velocity entering the wine aroma mixing chamber as you breathe in. The added air speed lifts more wine vapors off the surface enriching the aroma and flavor."

    Keep going for a couple more shots (including one from directly above that looks like a urinal) and their Kickstarter video.

    These are the self-lacing (technically self-tightening) sneakers built by Vimal Patel using LEGO parts (plus a Dremel and a hot glue gun).
    "This was a quick experiment into combining LEGO with other materials. To build on the shoe, I used a dremel and a hot glue gun to fix a few LEGO connection points. From there, it was straightforward to experiment with different designs and test their functionality. It works reasonably well, but I'm sure it can be done much better with a bit of effort. "

    Dutch fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht has shared detailed instructions on how to recreate her robotic, cocktail-pouring, leather-and-electronic masterpiece. She calls it the Drinkbot, and it looks like something Lady Gaga, the Hunger Games tribute from District 3 or the alien bartender on a space cruise would wear. Drinkbot Dress allows its wearer to decide who to serve a shot.
    A playful take on the cocktail dress, Drinkbot is made of leather and electronic components housed inside parts that look as though they were 3D printed, but Wipprecht tells me they were actually made through a process called sintering.
    Like 3D printing, selective laser sintering (SLS) is an additive manufacturing technology, but it begins with powder rather than filament and uses a laser and heat to fuse together the different layers. Drinkbot is equipped with a backpack that nests all the tubing and wiring inside, and a small pouch that holds the mixed drink liquid (for Terroir, it was gin and tonic). The heart-shaped centrepiece at the front of the dress holds the shot glass in place while the drink is poured

    This is the Indiegogo campaign for Blood Lube, sex lube that looks like blood.
    "Who is Stay Wicked and what is "Blood Lube?"
    Stay Wicked is a dark/goth clothing line started by the twisted minds of Christopher Murray and Kara Dennis. The couple wanted to create art they wanted to wear and things they wished existed.
    We are kinky people deep down, and fetish's are everywhere, although some like to be more hidden than others. We are the type of couple that has a coffin for a table and have lunch over our Ouija Board, so this isn't anything necessarily new for us.
    One night we talked about how it would turn us both on if we had intercourse with blood all over us. Rad right? But you can't just have sex in paint.. well you could (and that might be awesome) but we thought of how insane it would be to have an actual lube that looks like blood! And to our surprise, we couldn't find any product like that anywhere."

Even the Vidre-Slide’s 15-feet tall ladder is made entirely of glass, including its load-bearing rungs. Everything except the heavy base that prevents it from toppling is transparent, and surprisingly the slide can accommodate riders weighing up to 220 pounds.

    If you’ve read the “Song of Ice and Fire” from George R.R. Martin, I’m sure you’re aware that the actual Iron Throne from the book look very, very different to how it is portrayed in the TV series. For those not aware, this is what the throne looks like, portrayed by artist Marc Simonetti in The World of Ice and Fire.
    YouTuber D. Schuyler Burks of Sky Make Things released a montage video where he built the original Iron Throne based on Simonetti’s concept art. The video itself is about 8-minutes, but it looks like it took a hell of a long time to cut, paint, and assemble everything. The result is pretty damn impressive.

    Meet Graham, a human designed by Australia's Transport Accident Commission (TAC) specifically to survive car accidents. He looks the way he does is because his body has been modified to withstand a car crash.
    Graham was created as part of a new Australian road safety campaign by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). He was designed by sculptor Patricia Piccinini, a leading trauma surgeon, and a road safety engineer, who modified him based on their own knowledge of traffic accidents.
    The result isn't a pretty sight but it's certainly a sobering one. As you can see, Graham doesn't have a neck because these snap easily in car accidents. He also has a flat, fleshy face to protect his ears and nose. And if you're wondering about all those extra nipples, they're to protect his ribs like a natural set of airbags.

    Beginning this week, and lasting for only sixteen days, visitors to the Italian Lake Iseo can "walk on water." Built using 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, carried by a modular floating dock system of 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes, the installation—which sits just above water level—undulates with the movement of the lake. Visitors can experience this work of art by walking on it from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo, which is framed by The Floating Piers. The mountains surrounding the lake offer a bird’s-eye view of The Floating Piers, exposing unnoticed angles and altering perspectives.
    A 3-kilometer-long walkway was created as The Floating Piers extend across the water of Lake Iseo. The piers are 16 meters wide and approximately 35 centimeters high with sloping sides. The fabric continues along 2.5 kilometers of pedestrian streets in Sulzano and Peschiera Maraglio.

    This cool Pong Game Coffee table created by Daniel Perdomo. Awesome!
    The homage to Pong which has been under development for the last two years, takes the form of a coffee table concept that allows you to enjoy a real game of Pong using an air hockey style moment system. Watch the video of it in action below!
    Daniel Perdomo(facebook) the creator of the Pong Coffee table explains more about the project :
    -This project started about 2 years ago. I had the idea and i was talking with a few friends and decide to take the challenge and see how far could we go, working at nights in the free time. Just for fun.
    -We don’t have any electronics, product design or manufacturing background. All we knew for this was thanks to internet (google,youtube,forums). Today you can grab all the knowledge you want just a few clicks away! đŸ™‚
    – I’ve working with computer graphics for advertising for more than 20 years and that was a great tool because we can visualize ideas quickly and with precision.
    -Our circles of friends and family loves this and we wanted to show to the world the game so we can have an objetive reaction of the public and see if this is as cool as we think.
    -This first is our first working playable prototype but it needs a lot of help and work for make it a production ready prototype,
    so we are looking for a hardware incubator and people who may be interested in help us make it a real thing.

    A new virtual reality experience is being created which has been backed by NASA called Mars 2030 and is being created to provide an immersive application that allows users to feel in some way what it is like to stand on the surface of Mars.
    Mars 2030 was developed using scientifically accurate satellite imagery and data gathered in years of exploration missions and has been created using NVIDIA VRWorks technologie.
    Check out the trailer below to see what you can expect from the Mars 2030 project which is being created to provide the feeling of standing on Mars. Justin Sonnekalb, a game designer working on the Mars 2030 project explains :
    "We want you to feel like you’re standing on mars. – We want you to feel like you’re actually there. NASA is providing technical expertise to FUSION through a Space Act Agreement to make the first Mars surface VR experience based on actual operational and hardware concepts that the agency is currently studying.
    Mars 2030 was created by FUSION in collaboration with NASA and is powered by Nvidia GeForce. It simulates being on the Red Planet in a level of graphics fidelity that is only possible with NVIDIA VRWorks technologies. Our CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, introduced it to Steve Wozniak to try out during ‎GTC 2016.
    In a recent interview NVIDIA’s Zvi Greenstein, GM of GeForce Desktop explained a little more about the experience :
    You basically have the real Martian terrain… the real topography with rocks… the lightning model is accurate, the gravity model is accurate… the development team recorded the actual sound from the rover. – The rover, the habitat [modules], the labs… whatever you see in this application is based on actual CAD models provided by NASA…"

    Baharash architecture has been tasked by dubai-based eco resort group to design their flagship eco resort in liwa, the southern region of UAE.
    At the very early stages of the project, it was revealed that groundwater could be extracted using a deep well. this gave the design team an opportunity to create a story around a spring, which was of critical importance to bedouins for trade and transportation routes. the spring will be used for crop irrigation, fish farming, and recreational activities, as well as providing a natural habitat for various wildlife.
    "The accommodations and functional areas are distributed around the spring, which will be the heart of the resort. In total, there are 84 interconnecting suites of various types, all of which provide amazing views and an outdoor terrace. relaxing sights can be enjoyed from all key spaces, including the fitness centre which is furnished with smart equipment.The reception and back of house are located adjacent to drop-off. The restaurant and bar, provides guests with organic ingredients grown on site. The restaurant will offer indigenous delicacies as well as organic international fine cuisine. Guests will also be able to enjoy Dune dinning in the desert or dining by the spring or inside their suite. Guests are also able to forage organic produce from onsite allotments or catch fish from the spring, and with the help of a chef, incorporate the ingredients into a delicious meal. A wide selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy and local meat will also be delivered from farms in the nearby village.
    A business and research facility with state of the art technologies is also provided. The resort also provides health and Therapeutic spa facilities, which use organic ingredients. The therapeutic spa will provide a wide selection of wellness and beauty therapies. All spaces are equipped with smart glass windows, which offer instant privacy at a flick of a switch.
    Some of the environmental benefits include recycling waste water on site for irrigation, onsite waste management, the enforcement of a zero emission zone and 157,000 square feet of solar panels. The ribbon-like roof is designed to maximize the area for solar panels, which are planned for optimum efficiency. The resort will also employ wildlife biologists and conservation staff."

In the time since then I’ve produced three additional episodes, all following that roadmap. I love the series, and I really didn’t want to mess up what made it special by pumping out a bunch of episodes without good reason. If I did that, it would be Garfield.

Other concepts I’m playing with are traffic, reminders, and essentially anything that has a Google Now card. The idea is that you don’t need to interact with this UI. Instead, it updates automatically and there’s an open-ended voice search interface for anything else."

    Dr. Allan Drummond, an assistant professor at the University of Chicago, has done something very incredible with 3D printing.  He has recreated some amazing ancient creatures by 3D printing them in metal.
    Drummond is a human genetics and biochemistry researcher and he grew interested in trilobites, these arthropods are now extinct, they did live in the oceans for close to 270 million years. Over 17,000 species of these creatures are known today and they remain the most diverse group of animals that are preserved in the fossil record.
    He first drew the creature by hand in pencil and later in Inkscape to create the guides for 3D modeling. It was detail-oriented and laborious work yet Drummond stuck with it and ended up creating something that looks marvelous. The 3D models were printed using a form printer which uses a laser to cure dots of liquid plastic resin in solid form. All parts in the print were cut from the base and then polished and assembled again in plastic and then in steel, bronze and finally in silver. The results speak for themselves.

    Classical paintings could be recreated in 3D for blind and visually impaired art lovers if a crowdfunding campaign proves successful.
     The Unseen Art project wants to use 3D printers to produce tactile versions of paintings. The plan is to not only make the 3D artworks available for galleries but also to share the print files as open source so that people can make their own copies.
     The people behind the project note that most visually impaired people have heard about famous paintings but have never been able to experience them. While a 3D version wouldn’t be able to capture color or shade, it could give enough information about shape to allow people to get a better idea of the artwork.
    So far the project has turned one painting, the Mona Lisa, into 3D and made scale replicas of both the face and the full painting available to donators at $30 and $100 respectively. Those with more cash to splash will be able to buy a full-size replica for $1,500. Donators can either have the model shipped to themselves or ask for it to be donated to a organization for blind and visually impaired people.
     There aren’t any firm plans for which artworks will be added next. Though the campaign has a goal of $30,000, it’s flexible funding meaning all donators will receive their pledge reward even if the total falls short of the goal. [ Link ]
