Insane ‘Bent’ Building Concept Would Be The World’s Longest At 4,000 Ft

To be honest, I am clueless about New York City’s zoning laws. I totally understand the need for segregation by industry and stuff, but beyond that, I am absolutely lost. Anyways, as bustling cities like New York City gets denser, the obvious solution is to go skywards. However, due to the zoning laws, there’s a limit to how high a building can get in a leanly packed urban jungle and to get around this while still accommodating insane amount of population, architecture studio oiio has came up with an architecture with an unexpected turn – like quite literally.

MÜV Chair Keeps You Moving So You Won’t Be Killed By Sitting All Day Long

Sitting is awesome, but as it turns out, sitting kills more people than we care know. Sounds like a scary prospect, especially for a person like me who stay seated for hours on end. I guess sitting is an example of too much of a good thing. That said, if you jobs require to sit all-day long, then maybe it is wise to act on it before it harm your health (speaking to myself actually). With that goal in mind, you can do a few things: set a schedule to stand up and move a bit (stretch or whatnot), sit on a yoga ball, or you could just get the MÜV Chair. MÜV Chair is the brainchild of brilliant minds over at Zero5 Innovations and while it may looks rather run-of-the-mill, it is actually anything but.

Ti Bar – An Uber Stylish Toothbrush Holder For Home And On-The-Road

Unless your idea of luxury is to have a golden throne or one embellished with countless Swarovski crystals, bathroom isn’t quite a place to call luxury, but if you really want to up your bathroom’s ante in the luxe department without splurging tens of thousands on an exquisite throne, then may I suggest the Turtle Ti Bar Titanium Dental Essential Holder. It is not made of gold, neither is it coated with precious stones, but it is of titanium, which means it is both rust-resistant and bacteria-free, and being a titanium, it is in itself one hell of a looker too.

A Zelda-worthy Home Is One That’s Zelda Ocarina Controlled

No. This isn’t a Zelda edition of the Amazon Echo. Though it will be cool if it was. This is the heart to the Zelda Ocarina Controlled Home Automation by Allen Pan AKA Sufficiently Advanced, and yes, Pan is the same man behind the ‘real’ working Mjolnir hammer and the real-life light saber. As you can see, Zelda Ocarina Controlled Home Automation is not a weapon, though I am sure you can hook it up to unleash your own private army (don’t ask me how, though), or you could just use it to help you achieve more peaceful and mundane tasks like turning on the humidifier, lamps and whatnot, simply by playing the appropriate Legend of Zelda tune. Continue reading A Zelda-worthy Home Is One That’s Zelda Ocarina Controlled

Alternative Fact Desk Has One Leg, Defies Gravity Cos’, Alternative Fact

Prior to 2017, the phase ‘alternative fact’ was non-existence, but you all know how it got popularized and obviously, we are not going to get involved in this political shenanigans going on right now. However, not everyone is going to standby and watch some folk proclaim alternative facts and not express anything. Vintage Industrial, the purveyor of retro industrial furniture, is one of those voices and being a furniture company, it chose to weigh in on “alternative fact” with its own alternative set of facts: a desk can defy gravity and stands on just one leg.

Custom Star Wars AT-AT Mailbox Deserves The Title Of Best Mailbox Ever

Not everyone can be like Colin Furze who has the technical skill and financial backing to build an 18-foot tall ‘playable’ AT-AT in their backyard, but I am sure most of us are well capable of cobbling up a smaller scale version suitable for your mails and the occasional squirrel/chipmunk raids.

Clairy Is Probably The Coolest Air Purifier In Both Concept And Looks

You and I both know that plants help to promote oxygen during the day and they are obviously a part of nature’s workings that is beneficial to us. What you and I don’t know is, plants can also purify the air too, or at least they can do so with a little help from technology. Apparently, some species of plants have the ability to remove toxic agents from the air, but the less fortunate thing is, these plants with ‘special power’ do so with their roots and not the leaves.
