Sardines Foldable Rain Boots

Sardines Foldable Rain Boots
Gear  |  Design


Sardines Foldable Rain Boots by designer Estel Alcaraz. Sardines are folding rain boots that take up very little space. Sardines reduce the weight and volume of traditional heavy footwear.
"The principal concept of this project is the water. Thus, it is done research in a quotidian object such as the water bottles. It is interesting to see how its volume is being reduced about 1/5 when bottles are useless. Therefore, continuing with this idea, it comes to my mind to make a rain boots able to be folded once they are not being used"

Abandoned, Flooded Mall In Thailand Taken Over By Fish

Abandoned Flooded Mall In Thailand Taken Over By
Gear  |  Pic
These are a few shots from photographer Jesse Rockwell of the New World Mall in Bangkok, Thailand. The 11-story mall was closed in 1997 for being seven stories taller than the blueprints said it would be, then somebody tried to burn the building to the ground in 1999 because some consider it disrespectful to build any structure taller than the The Grand Palace. Since then, the decrepit mall was demolished to four floors, and locals decided to stock the flooded basement with fish to keep the growing mosquito population in check.
Impressive!

Major Scale Musical Wine Glass

Gear  |  Other
From the website:
••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Featuring a large goblet the size of a classic red wine glass, this innovative glass is big enough to accommodate a full A-major scale, along with your favorite wine or non-alcoholic beverage. Musical notes are labeled with sandblasted fill lines, so just pour to the desired note and run your moistened finger along the rim.
As it moves around and around the lip of the glass, your finger will alternately slip and stick, much like the motion of a violin bow. This causes the glass to vibrate like a bell and create a crystal-clear note.
This trick inspired Ben Franklin to create his glass "armonica," a spindle design propelled by a foot pedal.
Glassware made in Germany, decorated in Reno, Nevada.

To create this strata-cut animation, I planed down a block of wood one layer at a time, photographing it at each pass. The painstaking process revealed a hidden life and motion in the seemingly static grain of the wood, even as the wood itself was reduced to a mound of sawdust.

Instagram user Mirrorsme creates these whimsical drawings on her bathroom mirror. She writes,
"I bought my last markers in New York, and the sales person just couldn’t understand why I needed all those acrylic markers to draw on mirrors. Later that night, I drew Brooklyn Bridge on my hotel room mirror in Midtown (it was a nice hotel too, with a huuuge mirror… but I decided to remove the mirror art before I left)...Normally, it takes less than 30 min. to draw, but I can really get lost in the process and enjoy it."

These are transforming tea bags. "Transforming tea - chamomile tea bags with stressing symbols turn into calm ones once the tea is dissolved." They were created by ad agency M&C Saatchi for tea company BOH, who was hoping to convey their chamomile tea has a calming effect. For example, a fiery flames transforms into a calm one when the bag is submerged in water.

Social Pool by artist Alfredo Barsuglia in the middle of the Mojave
Gear  |  Projects
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.
