    Gear | Pic
    This is the original slide, patented in 1961, was relatively high-tech in its day. It was inspired by the long, durable-yet-flexible design of the filmstrip, and invented to turn an activity people were already doing into a user-friendly product. That's according to patent documents from Robert Carrier, who called his idea "a portable aquatic play device for body planing."

    One Fast Cat An Affordable Hamster Wheel For
    Gear | Pet


    This is a $200 One Fast Cat running wheel, an exercise wheel for cats. Some features to note are that it’s made from recycled plastics and its “surface is made from a closed cell EVA foam to prevent claws from catching and allowing cats to run naturally using their claws for safe footing.” It’s easy to wash and comes in a small box for you to assemble at home. Watch the Kickstarter video, but the project is already funded so contributing $200 gets you one.

    Beautiful Baby Bump Paintings
    Gear | Projects
    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.
