    "The inspiration for this project was the Doof Warrior’s flamethrower guitar from Mad Max. Nothing says rock-n-roll more than actual fire entwined with your tunes! This guy was completely ridiculously over the top and I loved it! The the entire movie he only cared about one thing, playing his music and spraying his fire. Even when people were having fist fights literally on top of him, he just wanted his guitar back.  "

    Professional nomad Foster Huntington is creating  a building treehouse project in Skamania County, Washington in the Columbia River Gorge. Their primary endeavor was a multi-platform tree house, but also included a skate bowl and a wood fired soaking tub as well. The Cinder Cone is Foster Huntington’s short film that documents this year-long process of building his dream home with this community of tight knit friends. Throughout the process, Huntington documented the construction in thousands of photos and sketches, which will be released as a part-instructional book on Kickstarter.
    "My name is Foster Huntington, you may have seen my projects The Burning House, the vanlife #tag or the photobook Home Is Where You Park it. Last spring, I started working on a treehouse and skate bowl in the Columbia Gorge with a group of friends. Inspired by the people and places I’d seen during my time on the road as well as childhood dream of building a Treehouse, we started planning in February.  After months of preparation, we started building in June and kept going through fall and into the winter. Friends old and new stopped by to work and stay on the property. Some of us worked as carpenters professionally, others learned on the go. Over the course of build, I took thousands of photos and kept sketches, models and notes from the design process.   "

    Outties, a pair of jeans inspired by the filmBack to the Future Part II, is funding on Kickstarter .
    "Background: Marty and Doc travel Back to the Future and arrive less than five months from now on October 21st 2015. Somewhere between self-lacing shoes and hoverboards, Doc tells Marty to “pull out his pants pockets” because “in the future all the kids wear their pants inside out”.
     “Why is nobody making inside out pants?” inventor Ross O’Mullane asked himself while watching Back to the Future part II over the Christmas holidays. “It started as a joke” confesses the inventor “then I started researching it, and when I realised nobody was doing it, I started working on a design.” It took five months for Ross to bring the idea from brain wave to final prototype

    Paris-based entrepreneur Guillaume Rolland has invented the “SensorWake,” the world’s first scented alarm clock that will wake you up using smell instead of sound.  Currently it is funding on Kickstarter.

Setting your Sensorwake is as easy as setting your espresso machine, and changing out the scents is even faster. All this is brought to you by Guillaume Rolland, an 18-year-old French entrepreneur with a vision of making everyone wake up happy!
    Even Google recognizes SensorWake’s potential, awarding it as one of the top 15 inventions “that can change the world” at the 2014 Google Science Fair

    The IKAWA, a home coffee bean roaster that is currently being funded on Kickstarter.  The digital roaster is then controlled through an accompanying app for iOS or Android, where the user can control everything from a roasting time of between 3 – 10 minutes, temperature, and even the air flow to unlock the full aromas of the bean.  The user can also choose from a bevy of preset roasting recipes, following the progress of the roast through a procession of real-time graphs and stats.
    "Then if you’re feeling adventurous, adjust recipe to create your own perfect roast: change roast duration, temperature and even the air flow with your smartphone or tablet to open up a world of flavours.   "

    This funny project by Pablo Garcia uses Trompe-l'œil optical illusion effect to add visual symbols to your selfie-stick photography:
    "To reduce vainglory and self-importance, victorious Generals in Ancient Rome would receive Memento Mori: a constant reminder of the fleeting nature of celebrity and acclaim, and that “Thou art mortal.”
    Derided as “solipsistick” and the epitome of narcissism, perhaps the Selfie Stick needs an accessory to rein in runaway vainglory. Or maybe just a way to add emoji to your selfies.
    Using principles of anamorphosis, or obliquely distorted perspective, the printed graphics are applied to the selfie stick. The smartphone camera is the only vantage point capable of decoding the image, inserting a graphic into your selfie. Perhaps it’s a sober reminder of your mortality in the midst of your vainglory, or simply a pile of poop with eyes."

    No glue. No cables. No steel reinforcements. British artist Steve Messam has installed a weight-bearing bridge across a stream in the UK's Lake District using about 22,000 sheets of bright red paper (+ slideshow). It’s called PaperBridge, commissioned by the Lakes Culture tourism organisation.  First, an arched plywood form was placed between the two supports, enabling the blocks to be stacked in position across the river. A 1.5-degree wedge was placed between each block and the final wedge was hammered into the apex to create the correct compression along the bottom edge, before the wooden former was removed. The bridge is held in place entirely by compression; no glue or other fixings are used. As you can see, the finished product—which will be removed and recycled after today—is more than strong enough to support its own weight. And the weight of at least a couple rubber booted-humans, dogs, and children, too. More pics after more.

    Inspired by 3D printers, the idea came from a gang of entrepreneurs after working at California Polytechnic State University. This unique process of creating fabric from scratch is called electrospinning, "an electrospinning process to convert liquid solutions into solid fibers which are then deposited onto a 3D mold. We call this process Field Guided Fabrication, or FGF. Essentially, an internal electric field inside of the machine's chamber guides fibers onto a 3D shape, where they bond together."  Currently, the Electroloom has crafted tank tops, skirts, and hats, but you can seemingly make anything you design.
    "What it is
     The Electroloom Developer Kit is a tool for designing and manufacturing custom 3D fabrics. When interacting with our machine, there is no need for thread, needles, or sewing. Instead, our users need only some simple CAD skills to design their patterns, and the Electroloom does the rest.
    Behind the scenes, our technology reduces the traditional textile manufacturing process into a single step. Instead of sending raw material through factories where it undergoes numerous processing steps to create a traditional textile, we are able to directly convert raw material to finished good

    These incredibly detailed, three-dimensional Star Wars scene is actually formed from just a single sheet of paper.  Artist Paper Dandy a.k.a. Marc Hagan-Guirey strategically cuts shapes,  then bends and folds paper to his will using an ancient art called kirigami. Hagan-Guirey describes his work to CNN:
    "He picked some of his favorite scenes from the original Star Wars movies and carved them out of 8.27 by 11.7-inch sheets of paper: "I use an X-acto knife and I'm never frugal about saving fresh blades. A metal ruler and a cutting matt. That's it really. Oh, and a few skewers to pop out small sections.""
    He’s started a kickstarter in hopes of displaying this art in a gallery exhibition titled “Cut Scene”.
    It’s simply to produce the exhibition so that Star Wars fans can enjoy seeing the unique kirigami models in their physical form. Every penny will go towards making a better gallery experience.”
