SNAP: Transform Just About Any Flat Object Into a Table. No Tools Required.

With SNAP you can transform just about any surface or board into a piece of furniture – and it doesn’t require any tools or cause any permanent changes to the surface.

This ‘Lucky’ Iron Fish Can Make You Stronger

It might not look like much, but this small iron fish can save lives. Canadian science graduate Dr. Christopher Charles traveled to Cambodia six years ago, where he discovered that anaemia was a huge public health problem.

Instead of finding children enjoying their youthful years, he found kids who were small and weak, often with slow mental development. Mother’s too were suffering. Tired and having painful headaches, many were unable to work. What these people needed was a healthy dose of iron in their diet – but the standard solution of daily iron tablets was often too expensive, too difficult to put into practice or simply unavailable. That’s when he had an idea.

Google Creates Time-Lapse Videos Automatically From Random Pictures on the Internet

This Nikon Camera Case Captures What Dogs Are Excited About. Is Anyone Surprised?

We usually take picture of things we’re excited about, but what if a dog could do the same thing? Nikon recently created their ‘Heartography’ project to see what gets dogs excited, using a happy dog named Grizzler as the product tester for their special camera mount with a built-in heart-rate monitor.

British artist Mat Collishaw (previously) has built a huge 3D-printed zeotrope called All Things Fall. The highly detailed circular sculpture is populated by 350 different figures, environmental elements and architectural pieces which animate when the carousel is spun in front of a synchronised strobe light. In motion, a shockingly grisly scene is revealed.

Jim Bachor Fills the World’s Potholes with Very Sweet Mosaics

Chicago artist Jim Bachor has been doing that in a highly unusual and clever way, filling the tire-popping road craters with beautiful and surprising mosaics made from glass and marble. See? Create art, save the world (or at least a few tires).

This is Real Food, Sliced into Perfect Cubes

We’ve seen plenty of projects that squeeze objects into a cubic form, but almost all of those are digital. Conceptual design studio Lernert & Sander on the other hand, created their cubes in real-life.
