There’s No Data Like Home: The Motherboard of Shoes

Motherboard Shoes

Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers took her home if she clicked her heels thrice and repeated, “There’s no place like home.” While this pair of shoes by Steven Rodrig won’t take you home no matter how many times you click your heels, it’s the pair that all geek girls who have a passion for data will want to have. Not because they want to wear it or anything (because it looks incredibly painful if they were to do so) but because they just want to marvel at the awesomeness of it.

Steven used old printed circuit boards from discarded computers and electronics to create this unique pair. He’s actually well known for his PCB art, and these shoes dubbed as “There’s No Data Like Home” have been featured numerous times. In fact, it was displayed at an exhibit recently in New York before Steven finally decided to part with it and listed it on his Etsy shop.

Mogees Turns Anything and Everything Into a Musical Instrument

Mogees1

There’s more to the world than meets the eye–and ears. There’s art in everyday things, from leaves turning into beautiful shades of auburn to the blues, red, and orange that paints the sky with every sunset. You can also make music using the stuff that you see around you, too, although you’ll need a little help from Mogees to actually play it.

Mogees is a small musical instrument that can play anything, from balloons and books to windows and cushions. Conceptualized and created by Bruno Zamborlin, Mogees’ sensor looks like a stethoscope of sorts. It works in conjunction with an app which interprets the signals it receives and transforms it into music.Continue Reading

Droolin’ Over Bricks: LEGO Food That Looks Good Enough to Eat

LEGO Food

Above is what pancakes slathered in syrup and topped with butter would look like if we lived in a pixelated world. We don’t, but that didn’t stop master Lego builder Sachiko Akinaga from putting together this gallery of scrumptious-looking dishes using nothing but Lego bricks. It’s hard enough–at least, for me–to build something from sets that contain actual instructions, so what Sachiko achieved here is no small feat.

Aside from the most common breakfast food ever, he also built a banana (that has just been peeled), some sushi, and even a burger. Hit the break to check out the rest of his work.Continue Reading

Mini Museum Fits Right Into Your Pocket

Mini Museum

Lunar and martian rocks, mummy wrap, dinosaur eggs and dino dung–these are just some of the things you’ll find suspended in the Mini Museum. And when they say “mini,” they really meant mini because they measure only a couple inches long and wide. Conceptualized by Hans Fex, the mini museums will come in small sizes, with the small one containing 11 specimens, the medium one containing 22 specimens, and the large one containing 33 specimens.

Basically the relics will come from Hans’ collection, which he gathered from various continents for last the 35 years. He will be breaking these down into smaller pieces and embed them in clear resin for the mini museums.

Scented Necklaces Smell Like Breakfast, Smell Like Home

Breakfast Necklace-C

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gives you energy so you can actually get some work done before refueling over lunch or during your afternoon coffee break. It’s a meal that some people ignore because they can’t wake up early enough, while others forget because it was never a habit to begin with.

Well, it’s time to break that cycle and start a healthier habit of waking up early and having some grub before heading off to work or school. For the latter forgetful group, what better reminded is there than these delectable necklaces from Tiny Hands?Continue Reading

For Your Million Dollar Ideas: Napkin Sketchbook

Napkin Sketchbook

JK Rowling wrote down her ideas for Harry Potter on paper napkins, which is now one of the biggest franchises of all time. I’m sure a lot of other people made it big by writing down their ideas on napkins, but she’s the only one I can think of right now. Inspiring story, though, isn’t it?

If you want to have a similar story about how you made it big, then you might want to get one of these Napkin Sketchbooks. At least you’ll be able to say you came up with that amazing, multi-billion dollar idea after jotting down your thoughts on a paper napkin–even though it wasn’t by whim or chance, but due to calculated moves.

The sturdy case comes with 10 napkins and a Sharpie to get your started. It’s available online for $38. It’s pretty steep, so you might want to get a hundred-pack of napkins from your grocery instead for much less.
