Geometric Sculptures by Zachary Abel

December 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Using binder clips, playing cards, paperclips and many other household objects, mathematician Zachary Abel pieces together intricate geometric structures. One of his most recent pieces, the Impenetraball (top) is made from 132 binder clips and Abel suspects its sturdy enough to support his own weight (though he has yet to confirm). Dizzying mathematical how-tos and patterns available via his website. (via make)

Happy Cloud Coasters

November 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A few minutes ago New Zealand-based Barefoot Dynasty launched their latest product: Happy Cloud Coasters. The coasters are made from Portuguese cork, are dirt and water resistant, and come packaged in a fancy recycled paper box. Just a hunch, but I think they’re going to sell a gazillion of these.

I’m loving these assorted projects by Paris-based designer Suzy Lelièvre who distorts and manipulates common objects into unexpected forms. If you like her work you might also enjoy Michael Beitz. (via fasels suppe)

A 1,000 Piece Popsicle Stick Bomb

October 4, 2011

Christopher Jobson

So apparently popsicle stick bombs are a thing, and after this video I think they’re going to be a huge thing. I agree with a commenter on YouTube who asked what kind of kinetic dark magic is this!? If you want to make one yourself head on over to Instructables for a tutorial on how to make your own Cobra Weave Exploding Stick Bomb. (via neatorama)

September 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

That’s right, I said it: these are some sexy pencils. These yellow Eco Highlighters use no ink solvents, no volatile organic compounds and are biodegradable. Available from the fine folks at aptly named Stubby Pencil Studio. More back-to-school goodness over on CMYBacon.
