Edible Art: Candy Craft Pen Uses Chocolate Ink

Candy Craft Pen

 

The pen you’ve dreamed of having ever since you were a kid is now a reality. Sure, a lot of folks are working on 3D chocolate printers and food printers. Most of them cost an arm and a leg, so if you’re just a typical foodie with a sweet tooth, then the Candy Craft Pen is a worthwhile alternative.

Instead of ink, the pen uses chocolate, so you can “draw” all sorts of sweet and delicious creations and eat ‘em all afterwards.

Transformers Art: ‘Saint Optimus Of Prime’ Stained Glass Window

Saint Optimus Of Prime

Optimus Prime isn’t a saint. Then again, who is? Even Autobots aren’t perfect. However, this art piece inspired by the head of the Autobots makes you think twice because it depicts Optimus in a completely different light. Gals and gents, meet Saint Optimus of Prime!

This 122-piece stained glass window was created with love (and lots of time and effort) by software engineer Craig Kovatch. The details are neat, featuring the characteristic color combination that Optimus sports all the time.

Type Your Letter, and ‘Snail Mail My Email’ Will Write and Send It For You

Snail Mail My Email

 

There’s just something about snail mail that makes it mean more than an email or instant message. By “it,” we don’t mean just the message, but the whole thing in general. I suppose a lot more effort goes into writing a letter and taking the time to mail it out versus typing it up and hitting the “send” button.

San Francisco artist Ivan Cash gets that a letter is often more than just a letter to the recipient. So in 2011, he started the Snail Mail my Email project where he invited people to shoot him an email, which he would then write and mail to the intended recipient for free. The project has since evolved into a week-long event where hundreds of people volunteer to write letters sent in by people from all over the world.

3D Printed Lacelamps Project Intricate Patterns On Your Walls

lacelamps-1

Artists Linlin and Pierre-Yves Jacques have created a collection of lamps that integrate a 3D-printed element reminiscent of lace. When the lights are turned on, they project a cool web of patterns all over your room, while the lamps themselves do look kind of neat. We’re not sure how much they cost or whether they’re even for sale, but we can’t imagine why they wouldn’t be. There are two types, filed under “Sky” and “Land”, meaning one hangs from the ceiling while the other stands on a surface.

Hit the jump for a bunch of pics.

Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Toilet Seat

han-solo-toilet-seat

We sense a disturbance in the force. It’s… it’s as if a new Star Wars movie is being made… and suddenly the market is flooded with all kinds of merchandise. What else can help explain the fact that you’re looking (and even perhaps contemplating buying) a toilet seat sporting the iconic Hal Solo Frozen In Carbonite image? Brushing aside the indignity of having Han preside over your smelly expulsions, the seat itself is carefully hand-painted by an artist in New Hampshire. It’s made from wood and should feel like a quality product. There’s also a Satisfaction Guarantee on the purchase, so if you don’t feel right about the $60 you’ll have to spend to own this, you can easily get a refund. Each one is custom made, and takes between 7 and 14 days to ship out.

If Heels Could Kill: Iron Shoes, Krueger Heels, and More

The Iron Shoes

The shoes are deadly, in both the figurative and literal sense. For the former, that’s because they’re inspired from elements with particularly deadly themes, such as Freddy Krueger for the Krueger heels. The latter is true because most of them are sky high and will probably give you a bad sprain if you walk around a little too carelessly while wearing them.

Aside from Freddie-inspired shoes, the most impressive from the bunch has to be the Iron Shoes, which is inspired by none other than Game of Thrones, where death is unfortunately all too common. You can check out the rest of the shoes from the series after the break.Continue Reading
