Since life is so largely due to chance, Max Mulhern came up with an awesome idea for a project.

The dice were released on 12/12/12 and have a GPS tracker to monitor their journey. They are headed toward Western Sahara and will be an interesting surprise to those along the coast. [Read more…]

These animal illustrations seem to have wandered out of some high-tech training facility, one where they engineer the latest and greatest creatures of the wild.
