Ceramic Pots With Creepy Realistic Mouths



Don't worry, these pots won't bite, and once you plant something in them the chatter will stop, I promise. These creepy ceramic creations are the product of Ronit Baranga's sick imagination, and their realistic look is enough to keep all but the bravest souls from reaching in. These would make great Halloween candy bowls, especially if you made the little ones dig around for their treat!

Working Lancer Rifle Made Out Of Legos


(YouTube Link)

Office cubicle warfare just got a whole lot cooler. This LEGO replica of a Lancer Rifle, the type carried by the characters in the very popular Gears Of War video game franchise, is so well designed that it functions as a rubber band gun, and has a clip so you can fire in burst mode. Good thing the chainsaw doesn't work, or else someone would lose more than an eye!

Wire Sculptures Of 2D Drawings



Gavin Worth sure knows how to bend a line, and design, and construct beautiful works of art. It's amazing how he uses a thin strand of wire to portray the human form so elegantly, and yet faithfully retains the integrity of the original sketch.

Head over to his website at the link below to see more works of all kind by Gavin, or hit the Colossal link for a small gallery of wire works.

Human Body Sponge Sculptures



At first glance, these sponge sculptures by Etienne Gros might make you blush, screaming things like "Not Safe For Work!" or "Kids, Look Away!" But they're sponges, people, not naked bodies, so don't start posting angry comments just yet. And if you don't think the naked body is a work of art, how about these naked sponges?

Risk Gets A Metal Gear Solid Makeover



The board game Risk has been around since 1957, so it's not surprising that it's had some face lifts over the years to bring in new players and appeal to younger audiences. But are Metal Gear Solid fans going to put down the controller and clear off the dining room table for a good, old-fashioned game of Risk?

Mark Twain's Second Life



Mark Twain was a ramblin' man, and was so intent on living life to the fullest that he was brought back from the dead and lived another hundred years, according to Michael Kupperman, who selflessly agreed to illustrate Twain's autobiography so that folks who can 't read all the words can stare at the pretty pictures. Click the link and find out a bit more of what Twain got up to after his first death!

Lightsaber Hand Rails Rock Trains In Tokyo



The daily commute got a lot more interesting recently when life sized lightsaber hand rails that actually light up were installed in Tokyo trains to promote the Star Wars: The Complete Saga DVD release.

If they'd been installed in trains in America's major cities, they would have been summarily ripped off and sold on craigslist Ebay, so I doubt we'll see a promotion as cool as this in the U.S. any time soon. Head over to the link to see what Japanese commuters thought of this bold promotional gimmick.

Bizarre Trailer For Upcoming Game NeverDead



Who knew that breathing new life into the survival horror genre meant bringing utterly bizarre elements, including a morbidly obese chicken faced demon, into the mix and acting like they should still be scary?

The developers at Konami appear to have dropped one too many doses while making the upcoming game NeverDead, and the amount of crossover hybrid elements make the game that much stranger. What is this, Final Fantasy In Wonderland after the Zombie Apocalypse?

These paintings by Laura Bifano depict animals as a bunch of squares, but this ain't your grandma's Cubism. This is 8-bit Cubist artworks for the video game generation, with cubic animals that look like they've leaped off the tv screen and into their "natural" habitats, and are having trouble fitting in with the classical art world.

There are plenty more cool paintings at the artist's site below, take a gander and you'll see a whole wide world of cubic critters trying to act natural.

Soda Bottles Used As Interior Lighting


(YouTube Link)

It's something we rarely have to think about in America, but in developing countries people are lucky enough to have a roof over their heads, much less indoor lighting. Houses are dark during the day, and lack of interior light is a serious problem that, as it turns out, has a dead simple solution.

Soda bottles are collected, filled with water and bleach, then sealed and fitted into ceiling panels to act as brilliant mini skylights. This project, called Isang Litrong Liwanag, or A Liter Of Light, aims to show people across the globe how they can install these bottle lights for themselves and bring some light into their lives.

3D Printer Used To Fabricate Artificial Blood Vessels

3D printers have been used to create some amazing things, from robot parts to minecraft models to flexible solar panels, but nothing compares to being able to print out body parts for surgery!

In Germany, researchers have created artificial blood vessels by putting a mix of synthetic polymers and biomolecules, so that the vessels aren't rejected, into the 3d printer ink reservoirs, and the results are a finely detailed set of transplant worthy capillaries precisely detailed in every way.

Now that they have succeeded in creating blood vessels, researchers are looking at ways in which to print out internal organs and bones. I wonder how much those ink cartridges cost to replace?

Maquette Of The Mysterious Hatbox Ghost



This maquette of the Hatbox Ghost, a mysterious figure that appeared briefly in Disneyland's Haunted Mansion before seemingly disappearing off the face of the earth, was made by Kevin and Jody Kidney in celebration of Walt Disney World's 40th Anniversary.

He features real hair fibers and a base made out of weathered barn wood, with a wavy glass bell jar on top so the sculpt looks a bit strange when viewed through the glass. Let's hope this sculpture doesn't mysteriously vanish like the original animatronic figure!

Anime Performance In Real Life Is Scary


(YouTube Link)

Watching these guys imitate an anime scene is funny yet somehow scary, and it's made much worse by the fact that they're acting out to a Backstreet Boys song, especially when the guy on the left's hair is so much cooler than all of the Backstreet Boys put together. This video makes me glad that people don't express themselves like the characters in anime do, or else we'd all have a hard time telling whether someone is angry or extremely happy!
