This is ARuFa, a lonely man who turned his shower head into a beautiful lady.
With a mask, acrylic paint, some newspapers, and duct tape, ARuFA created the face. He completes the look with a wig, a pair of balloons which are stuffed into a hastily put-together body that’s dressed in flimsy lingerie. Either he was really bored or…really bored. More images after more.

Beautiful Baby Bump Paintings

Carrie Preston, an artist in Cornwall, UK. She explains, “I paint bumps! It may seem completely mad to some people, in fact some even go as far to describe it as vulgar. I personally see it as beautiful. Painting a pregnant bump allows you to freely express yourself, it’s fun and relaxing.” Preston has painted over 130 baby bumps. Each belly painting takes her about two hours and is made to the mother's specifications. Sometimes Preston can feel the baby kick as she paints. You can see many more of the 130 bellies that she's painted here. Cool, more images after more.

"We love reading your comments as it helps us understand what you like about our films and what you might like to see next. There is one theme that many fans have requested and it’s one that Simon would really like to make too – it’s the theme of going to the vet. Simon has been developing ideas around the vet theme for some time now. With so many ideas and gags, we feel this film deserves to be longer than our usual YouTube episodes and that this is the perfect opportunity to do something a little different!…That’s why we’re asking our fans to get behind us and help us make a film that we can all be proud of. ‘Off to the Vet’ will be made by the fans, for the fans!"

A view of artist Alfredo Barsuglia's "Social Pool," which he installed in a patch of road-less desert in the middle of the Mojave, Southern California. The swimming pool located somewhere in the southern Mojave Desert between Joshua Tree and Apple Valley. The public is allowed to use the pool, but in order to do so visitors need the key that unlocks it (it is kept covered) as well as the GPS coordinates. Only once you have the key, which is kept at the MAK Center, are you given the coordinates.
"It's really hard to find," says Barsuglia. "There is no road. There is no fence. There is no sign. There is no trail. You just come on it. I'm sure some people won't find it."
The visiting season is May 1 through September 30, seven days a week. The GPS coordinates of Social Pool as well as the key to open its mobile cover are provided by the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood. Please call or pass by the MAK Center on the day you want to visit Social Pool and check if the key is available. No reservation possible.

Authentication is done on local device to generate a public key that will match with server.” Its creator explains a little more:
Many of the social networking sites like facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and others use the NFC technology for sharing of information. The Business side of social networking includes referrals, business cards and resumes. In the not so distant past business meetings did not have the luxury of online support for follow-ups. The advent of LinkedIn and similar services has brought a sea of change in growing one’s business network.”

3D Printing Stone AgeTools

Israeli designers Dov Ganchrow and Ami Drach recreated stone age tools. These prehistoric flint tools were three-dimensionally scanned at the Hebrew University's Institute of Archaeology. Then, specialized extensions and handles were printed by 3-D printing firm Stratasys out of polymer, the parts were then prepared and assembled on the original flint hand-axes, effectively joining the two most temporally distant making technologies: flint knapping and 3D printing.
"Any multi-tool becomes specialized when frozen at a single moment in time during its use," says Ganchrow. "The first stage of the project was one of hastened evolution and bleeding: flint rocks of desirable size, shape and material quality were sourced from the Negev desert in southern Israel, while time was spent improving and understanding the skill of knapping. Basically this involved the striking of flint with a softer stone (historically a striking bone or antler was also used) to create controlled breakage, and chipping away flint flakes as the impact’s shock wave runs through the stone. Needless to say this is where the bleeding came in..."

Nearly 5,000 miles of abandoned railways criss-cross the the landscape in Mexico and Ecuador, left dormant for decades after privatization of the national system suspended passenger service in 1995. Two Guadalajara-born artists wanted to travel the paths of these "modern ruins," so together they designed what just might be the coolest hybrid of all time.
Artists Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene (Los Ferronautas) built their striking silver road-rail SEFT-1 vehicle to explore the abandoned passenger railways of Mexico and Ecuador, capturing their journeys in videos, photographs and collected objects.

The stuffed animals captured in Mark Nixon’s book, Much Loved, have been treasured and lost, used and occasionally abused, but never forgotten. The idea to document these lifetime companions occurred to Nixon when he started noticing his son’s devotion to his stuffed Peter Rabbit. “I was struck by … the way he squeezed it with delight when he was excited, the way he buried his nose in it while sucking his thumb, and how he just had to sleep with Peter every night,” Nixon wrote in the introduction to his new book, which is published by Abrams. “I vaguely remembered having similar childhood feelings about my own Panda.” More images jump more.
