    "This timelapse is about a year in the making. I started sometime in June of 2010 and finished it on August 19, 2011. It wasn't constant work of course, just working on it every now and then. I'd estimate I have invested anywhere between 250 and 300 hours on it. Most of this was time I spent walking, biking, or riding the bus to locations I was shooting. There are very few locations I used a car to get to. Total frame count is about 28,000 frames and 85 different shots. "

    Laundry Arcade Concept
    Gear  |  Concept  
    Laundry Arcade Concept by Kingston University design MA student Lee Wei Chen. You put your dirty stuff into the washing machine, insert some coins, and start playing.
    "The machine looks like an arcade style video console – but the bottom half of the unit is a washing machine, with the components’ circuitry linked together. Therefore, the washing cycle is dependent on the success of the person playing the game, meaning that if they struggle, extra coins are needed to make sure the washing cycle is completed. "

    The Working Pedal Powered Forklift
    Gear  |  Toy  

    This Pedal Powered Forklift($320) looks like a real woking and miniature Forklift! The chassis is made from durable ABS plastic, and the crank powered forks are capable of lifting up to 6 1/2 lbs. It’s limited to kids up to 55-inches. And a maximum riding weight of up to 110 lbs. 
    "This is the pedal-powered, ride-on version of a Linde 394 forklift that raises and lowers at its driver’s command. Made in Germany, its lifting fork is raised by turning a hand crank and held into place with a locking lever, tilting slightly backward to keep an included plastic 6 1/2 lb.-capacity pallet stable, just like a real forklift. Pedals power the forklift forward and backwards with a precisely engineered chain drive, its integrated eccentric keeps the chain taut for efficient power transfer to the rear axle."
