"Even the most hard-core LEGO fan has to grow up someday. Fortunately, Earth Blocks give adult enthusiasts a more sophisticated way to get their stack-and-lock fix. Instead of the brash, kid-friendly colors of their Danish counterparts, Earth Blocks draw on more urbane hues — a palette of greens and browns, mottled, like a forest floor. The blocks are made from natural materials — coffee beans, cedar sawdust, or scraps of cedar bark — that have been blended with polypropylene for rigidity. Earth Blocks are softer around the edges than the classic toy. As a result, they don't snap together as tightly as LEGOs do, which makes them less than ideal for making lightsabers. But their uniform shape (the bricks come in just one size — 1-1/4" x 5/8" x 5/8") lets them stack beautifully, and the colors blend harmoniously no matter what combination you put them in. Plus, these toy blocks look more appropriate in a professional setting than miniature figurines with yellow heads."

A glowing cathedral like structure — dubbed the Luminarie De Cagna, was display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. "Soaring above the street at 91 feet high and using 55,000 LEDs to light up the night sky. The canopies and columns are created out of wood and the lights, and despite the jaw dropping light and color, the whole shebang only uses 20 kilowatts per hour of energy." Cool
"Since the three main characters of the movie have the ability to fly, we came up with the idea of staging a few "flying people" sightings around NYC. We achieved that illusion by having 3 custom-made aircraft (which were shaped like human beings) fly above designated areas in NYC and NJ."
Basic House designed by Barcelona based designer Martin Azua. It's basically an lightweight balloon that can be carried in your pocket and used for shelter.
"The Basic House is a temporary housing solution so portable it can be folded up to fit in your pocket. Created from a metalized polyester material, when unfolded it self inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun to provide an instant shelter. Once inside the shelter, the material reflects your body heat to keep the user warm. If reversed the material will reflect the sun to keep a cool interior."
"Two glass carafes shaping a human heart when joined together. The heart is a reminder for the generally underestimated but essential role health plays in our lives. In order to prevent cardiovascular and blood pressure diseases we have to start with the root of the problem, our daily consume of food and beverage. A wine decanter is built together with a water carafe. A half half coloured mix of red and white. Red wine stands for low pressure, water stands for high pressure. The organic heart shape has been developed into two different, stand-alone objects according to the natural division of ventricles."
