Pen-covered Mercedes-Benz

Comments Off on Pen-covered Mercedes-BenzStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Costas Schuler saw a book about art cars 5 years ago and was fascinated by them. He knew he wanted to make one of his own but didn’t know where to start, until one morning he woke up and knew he wanted to do something with pens. So he started covering his old 1981 Mercedes -Benz with pens, and he’s been doing it ever since using pens donated from people all around the world.

Costas is known as The Pen-Guy and his car is called Mercedes-Pens and together they travel the country collecting pens and putting smiles on the faces of those who spot them. The Mercedes-Pens is now covered with over 10,000 pens both on the inside and the outside.

Custom Wheels Chairs

The guys at Emosign came up with an innovative idea to improve our sitting pleasure. The Evolution One custom chair is a leather chair that comes with beautiful custom wheels. The car rims are just for design, they don’t help the chair move but they do get the imagination going. Take a look at these beauties:

Rotating House

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Environment is a very popular issue nowadays so environment-friendly houses are finally becoming interesting. Domespace invented their semi-spherical houses over 30 years ago but only a few of them have been purchased and only around France, especially in Brittany, where the company is based.

The Domespace house plans were designed to optimize warmth by natural means, so the house actually turns to follow the sun and gain as much energy as it needs to keep temperature at an ideal level. If you don’t want warmth and sun-rays you can just set it to turn its windows away from the sun. You can command the engine to turn the house at a certain time or program it to do a full day rotation.

These days Domespace houses only come with an engine, but a few years ago if you wanted to buy or rent a house, you had to move them manually. I can imagine such a house for lease: “It’s a great house, spacy, full of light…only thing is you have to turn it yourself”.domespace_house.jpg

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Hunterville is a village in New Zealand, established in 1884 by George Hunter and that according to the 2006 Census has a population of only 440. But that doesn’t stop it from gathering huge crowds from all over the island for the unique Huntaway Festival.

The Huntaway is a fun festival featuring contests like the Dog Braking Contest, pig yarding, speed shearing and the main attraction, The Shemozzle. This a special obstacle race for men or women  and their dogs, across steep hills, slipery slopes and disgusting food-stops that include sheep eyes, worms, bugs and raw meat, just to name a few.The obstacles of the Shemozzle are evealed to the contestants only 3 minutes before the race so no one can say they are really prepared.

Scarriest Dog Photos Ever?

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I remember seeing one of these photos on some random blog a while ago and I remember thinking “man I wouldn’t want to be in the shoes of the guy that pissed this dog off”. Today, after looking at the rest of the photos I realized the dog wasn’t angry at all, that’s how he expresses himself when he’s playing with his balls. Well, not his balls, balls…you know what I mean and if you don’t, just take a look at the pics below:

The Dog Car

Remember the movie “Dumb and Dumber” starring Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels? That was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this puffy treasure. I remember that goofy car of theirs with the red tongue sticking-out and this is comes pretty close. My compliments to the designer. Here is the Dog Car:

Margay – The Tiger Cat

47 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The Margay is a solitary wildcat with some very unique characteristics. Its look alone make it stand-out although it is very solitary people rarely have the chance to see it. The Margay is one of the few animals in the world that can climb trees with their heads facing down, thanks to their very special joints, able to turn up to 180 degrees.

The Margay is on the endangered animals list, but no one really knows how large their population really is  between Mexico and Argentina.Margays don’t take well to humans invading their habitats and sacientists say they are so well adapted to life in trees that they can go their entire lives without touching the ground.

Like all cats, Margay see very well at night and have no problem feeding of birds, reptiles and squirrels, if they can catch them.

Edit: Guys I apologize for the grammar and spelling mistakes but I only do this as a hobby and most of the time I write and post the photos in a hurry. Hope you understand and thanks for stopping by. I posted a link to where I found the photos, it’s a Russian photo site, but I doubt they can take credit for them.

There’s more than one side to everything, apparently the human brain included. Some ingenious minds created a sort of cube puzzle that shows the human brain from every side. Have a look:

A Car Cocktail

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

What happens when you try to build a car using parts from several different other cars. Well a Nissan Maxima owner from Kuwait wanted to find out first hand so he started working. He replaced the front of his Nissan with the front end of a BMW 7 series, the bumper of a BMW M3, he replaced the front doors with sleek Lambo doors, he got the hood split in half and got the rear wing of a Toyota Supra. You can check out the result for yourself, some will love it, others will hate it, there’s no in-between.

Prada Shop in the Middle of the Desert

Comments Off on Prada Shop in the Middle of the DesertStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The last thing someone would expect to see in the Texas Desert is a luxury boutique, right? Well that’s what German artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset were thinking when they decided to build their Prada masterpiece near the town of Marfa. What looks like a small and elegant Prada shoe-store is actually just an art project, the shoes on display are real Prada creations but there is no door to this shop, so no, you can’t buy any of them.

Miuccia Prada allowed the artists to use her brand for their art project and even picked out the shoes that are now on display. So if you’re ever in Marfa, Texas and you see the Prada boutique, just admire it from the outside, don’t force the door.

Well I doubt it, but you have to admit if this tuned up Smart would be the next Batmobile everyone’s jaws would hit the floor. I’m not holding my breath for this ever happening, but a guy can dream. The Batsmart concept was presented at SEMA 2008 auto-show.

World’s Biggest Salmon

13 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I love salmon, especially smoked, but I never knew they were so ugly. Just so you don’t lose your appetite completely, I will say not all salmon looks this bad, only Chinook salmon.

This particular Chinook salmon was found by biologist Doug Killam in Battle Creek, near Anderson and is apparently the largest salmon in the world, weighing 85 pounds. I should say was the largest salmon in the world since Killam only found the carcass.  Take a look:
