Jellybean Bikes

Why hasn’t anyone thought of this yet?  A new Aussie start up is selling custom coloured bicycles.  Brilliant, I know.   Unfortunately for us Canucks and the rest of the world, they don’t seem to have a method for shipping outside OZ right now.  Too bad.  Check out their site JELLYBEAN BIKES.

Amy Winehouse Teapot

10 05 2010

Wow.  This is so wrong, and yet utterly amazing. My belly hurts from laughter.

Charles Krafft & Mike Leavitt’s ‘Pitchfork Pals’ bombard London with the best of Seattle’s post-grunge visual art culture. A variety of handcrafted items transform StolenSpace Gallery into a sinister souvenir shop with dictator teapots, life-size human bone china shovels, cardboard tennis shoes and artist action figures. A sampling of individual projects frames the debut of this dynamic duo’s ‘Pitchfork Pals’ ceramic collaborations.

‘Pitchfork Pals’ spawn from an ongoing dialogue between two artists separated by 30 years of age who share a mission for art alternatives. Since 2005 the two Seattle natives have formed a series of media icons, politicians and celebrities such as Kim Jong Il, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Aleister Crowley, Nick Griffin and Amy Winehouse. Leavitt sculpts these busts 20 to 30 cm tall, then each edition is slip-cast and hand-painted by Krafft in his basement. Some become classic busts, teapots or the British “Toby mug” knick-knack. Taking pride in their handiwork, these two iconoclastic craftsmen are not armchair critics. The artists’ politics range widely, so their meditation on manufactured evil is not easily digestible. Looking into the deeply carved pupils of a ‘Pitchfork Pal’ conjures biographical depths underneath easy editorializing. Totemic power and sculptural nuance make these tainted characters undeniably mesmerizing”

The Rain Drum

5 05 2010

The Rain Drum (or Drumbrella as it should be called!!!) is a conceptual umbrella designed by Dong Min Park to provide a little musical accompaniment to a walk through the rain. You see (or hear!), each section of the umbrella is supposed to make a different drum sound (snare, bass, tom-tom, crash cymbal and high-hat cymbal) when hit by droplets.

LEGO Bugatti

8 04 2010

Skilled LEGO builder Sheepo went and made a Bugatti Veyron out of LEGO Technic pieces. watch the video to fully appreciate Sheepo’s work though, because it shows off the car’s braking, automated bonnet and rear spoiler, and amazing 7-speed gearbox (transmission action starts at 1:45).

Email Counting T-Shirt

1 04 2010

Chris and Madeleine Ball created a t-shirt which incorporates an Arduino Lilypad, Bluetooth dongle, and an Android phone to send the number of unread emails in their inbox to the shirt, which will show up as illuminated LEDs via conductive threads. The shirt has 7 LEDs and can display up to 127 new messages. For most of us, 126 of those will be spam. I can’t wait till he get’s stuck in the rain with that T-Shirt on!
