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)

Dead Sexy Pencil Highlighters

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.

These fun paintbrush coat hooks are the latest work from creative powerhouse Dominic Wilcox who was inspired by discovering solidified paintbrushes he had forgotten to wash. The brushes were made for the Object Abuse exhibition at KK Outlet in London that runs through 25. (thnx, dominic!)

Jakob Hunosøe is a Danish photographer who slightly alters ordinary objects to create these humorous and unexpected images. These are five of my favorite photos from his On Things Ordinary series.

This ball of string wax candle by Gomitolo is priced well out of range for my household, but it sure does look awesome. (via svpply)

Light Painting with Roomba Vacuum Cleaners

July 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

These photos have apparently been around for a while, but this is totally new to me. An enterprising group of robotic vacuum cleaner owners have used LEDs affixed to the top of their Roombas to create these amazing long exposure photographs. Check out Roomba art group for more. Photos via IBR Roomba, Mike Bala, and Steve Doll. (via laughing squid)

A Chair on Wheels Made of Books

June 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

When I think of furniture made from books the first word that comes to mind is uncomfortable, however this hefty chair entitled Bench of Thoughts (Banco del Pensamiento) made of recycled books by Alvaro Tamarit actually looks pretty darn comfy. The heft of the chair also matches the price, however this is certainly more of an art piece than something to eat your bagel and coffee in the morning. Check it out over on Saatchi Online.
