Swiss Watchmaker Created 100% Swiss Watch Made From Real Swiss Cheese

Luxury watches made of exotics and precious materials are not uncommon, but one independent Swiss watchmaker, H. Moser & Cie, has taken exotic to a new level of high by using, wait for it… real Swiss cheese. Wait, what? Yes, freaking real Swiss cheese it is. The edible milk derivative as we know it, being used on a timepiece. I know it sounds a little insane, but rest assure that the Swiss Mad Watch by H. Moser & Cie is as real as you and me, and it is also one of the rare Swiss timepiece that can actually claim to be 100% Swiss (the first in the market, btw).

Finally, Indominus Rex From Jurassic World Can Be Yours To Control

So, great, it moves, but unfortunately, this biped creatures can’t stomp around your parquet flooring like the fake real-deal. Instead it rolls on wheels.

Gorilla Bow: Ancient Bow Reimagined into A Versatile, Mobile Gym Equipment

I confess. I am not so much of an archer and so when I first picked up a bow and arrow, I realized that you do need some pretty serious core upper body strength to work this range weapon. It was nothing like Hollywood movies where the protagonist just picked one up and becomes a marksman right away. Not even close. Anywho, understanding the strength a bow can offer, a start up leverages on the shape of this ancient weapon to create a versatile and effective fitness equipment which you can bring anywhere. Gorilla Bow, as it is called, combines the structure of a bow with a powerful resistance band technology to enable users to work on their back, chest, arms, shoulders, and even legs. It is almost like having your own gym, but without the need to confine yourself in a mirrored wall, air-conditioned room with a dozen of sweaty dudes.

Freaky Sneaks “Super Nintendo” Shoes Have Real Controller Buttons!

Freaker Sneaks is not shoe brand and that’s probably a good thing, or else this shoe customizer founded by U.K. born artist Jonny Barry wouldn’t be able to turn out shoes that you desired in your favorite, sometimes one-of-a-kind design. Having said that, if you are tired of off-the-shelf sneakers and if you have been bitten by the nostalgic gaming bug, then you should really check out Freaker Sneaks’ Jordan “Super Nintendo” IV. Well, the product pretty much says it all. There’s really nothing we can add on except for two things: it has a colorway that’s a nod the Super Nintendo chassis color and each pair features D-pad and buttons that are actually pulled from official Super Nintendo controllers, and hence they are can actually be pressed. Continue reading Freaky Sneaks “Super Nintendo” Shoes Have Real Controller Buttons!

Man Creates Working 3D Printed RC Motorcycle With Moving Rider

DIY stuff doesn’t necessary make things cheaper, but the process offers gratification that money can’t buy. Gratification like the ability to build your own radio controlled version of the 2016 Draxter Concept Drag Bike and maybe, even a 2016 Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP. We already piqued your interest, didn’t we? No? Well, then perhaps the fact that the aforementioned scaled, RC versions each has a rider that moves will. A RC motorcycle is, of course, nothing new, and I am sure a 3D printed one isn’t either, but one that features an articulated rider with arms, head and torso that moves like a real person riding like Brett Turnage’s creations? And DIY? Now, that’s something worthy of any motorcycle enthusiast, tinkerer, or RC aficionado’s attention. Continue reading Man Creates Working 3D Printed RC Motorcycle With Moving Rider

Paul George’s First Nike Signature Shoe Has His Portrait On The Insoles

Watch The Beauty And Destruction Of A 100 MPH RC Car In Slow Motion

Adrenalin junkies love the thrill that speed brings and the easiest way to get the speed fix is via cars.
