Dom’Up: A Glamorous Treehouse That Doesn’t Harm the Tree

Most treehouses are rustic, but the new Dom’Up from architect Nicolas d’Ursel and arboriculturist Bruno de Grunne is downright glamorous. Their unusual design puts the treehouse in between the trees, combining the best qualities of the traditional treehouse with modern suspension systems like those on the Tentsile (previously). Because it requires no permanent mounting hardware, it is both quick to install and has no impact on the trees it occupies.

These 3D Geometric Illusion Lights Are Out of This World

3D Printed Sculptures of Star Wars Characters With Buddha Bellies Are the Perfect Desk Accessory

With big round bellies that remind us to let go of attachment and enjoy life, Buddha statues get a pop culture make over.

He replaced the Buddha’s head with each of your favorite Star Wars heroes and villains. The statues are available for purchase in his Etsy shop and come in 3 different sizes. They come signed and dated. What could be a better reminder to live your life than a Yoda/Buddha mash-up on your nightstand?

Books are a beautiful thing, but sometimes the building that houses them is even more captivating. The Livraria Lello (Lello Bookstore) is one of those cases.

Skaters Build a Railroad Riding Half-Pipe & Rowboat Ramp in the Latest Film From Zenga Bros.

You might recall the Zenga Bros. from their energy charged, nostalgia inducing film Ski Boys (and if you haven’t seen it yet, I’m envious). Now they’re back with a new short that’s equally enthralling. They worked with a load of skaters to create imaginatively artistic mobile skate ramps like you’ve never seen before. One is a railroad-traveling half-pipe with a conductors cabin on either end. Just roll it down the rails for a different view.

Fancy Pancake Printer Makes The Future Look Tasty

I’ve never met a pancake I didn’t like. Ever since Mickey Mouse ear pancakes at Disney Land, pancake shapes have thoroughly impressed me.

That’s why this new invention by Norway-based food enthusiast Miguel Valenzuela gets my heart pumping. This man created a pancake printer for his daughters and although it’s not for sale yet, the future is looking tastier already.
