    Wine Packaged in a Paint Bucket

    Gear  |  Design
    It’s wine packaged in a paint bucket – a design concept by Lithuania-based ad agency, McCann Vilnius for Beaujolais Nouveau, a batch of new red wines produced annually by the Beaujolais region of France. The premise of the paint bucket design is that wine does more than intoxicate. It also, like paint, colors the lips and teeth of the consumer. The back of the bucket provides a color chart, letting the drinker know how many glasses of wine it might take to “paint” your teeth various shades of purple. Cool design.

    Felix Re-Entry Suit

    Array
    Gear  |  Design
    This re-entry suit designed by Bulgarian artist dfacto, an astronaut abandons his doomed craft and returns to earth. Perhaps NASA has similar things in mind, but this is just a wishful concept. Good idea!
    "Watching the Felix Baumgartner jump was one of the highlights of the year for me. I was really blown away, and this is my homage to that moment: a theoretical look at what advances his jump could bring for space exploration and astronaut survivability. In this case it's a specialized hardened suit that can allow for re-entry from low earth orbit. Not a jump you want to make, but when you have to you'll want to be wearing this suit."
