The VW Bus Lives Again! But Now It Will Park In Your Kitchen As A Refrigerator

We have heard Volkswagen is rebooting the iconic VW Bus and if I ask me, I’d say the news come as both yay and nay. Yay because the microbus is coming back and nay because it will never be as cool as the iconic ride (cue The Doors’ Light My Fire). I guess somethings are best left in the era where it belongs. However emotionally tied we are to certain objects, we have to move on somehow. But moving on does not mean ditching your love for this cult phenomena vehicle entirely. You can actually still own it, but this time, it has to go into your kitchen because, the familiar lines now exist as a fridge. Yes. That’s a VW Bus refrigerator that we are talking about! Holy sh… Continue reading The VW Bus Lives Again! But Now It Will Park In Your Kitchen As A Refrigerator

What you have here is a Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas cuckoo clock, officially licensed, of course, and you know what I think? I think the marriage between the celebrated creepy animation and cuckoo clock is a match made in the deepest pit of hell. Which means, it made for the perfect addition to your Halloween decor. I see no other way of recreating a spookier atmosphere than having a clock playing back This is Halloween, accompanied by Zero, Jack’s faithful ghost dog, popping in and out of the doors atop of the Town Hall at every strike of the hour.

BLACK+DECKER GoPak That Powers Tools Also Serves As Portable Battery

This Scale Breaking Bad RV Spews Incense, Not Meth Smokes

Besides actually cooking Meth (which is highly illegal, btw) dressed in a bright yellow hazmat suit with Walter White hyperflesh mask, what other better way to celebrate your love for the awesome, but morally-questionable TV show of all time, Breaking Bad, than owning the highly recognizable light brown RV where Walter does his deeds? But lets face it: not everyone has the parking space for an RV and then there’s the question of affordability, and how the hell one can recreate the bullet holes on the RV door. Well, to save yourself the trouble and substantial sum of money, there’s a scaled version which you can own. Continue reading This Scale Breaking Bad RV Spews Incense, Not Meth Smokes

Panasonic Self-driving Fridge Is What Every TV Show Binge Watchers Need

At a time where binge watching TV series has become a norm, it only makes sense that you stay glued to your couch and such instances, if whenever you feel the need consume some cold drinks, Panasonic self-driving refrigerator seems like a no brainer. Unveiled at this year’s IFA, the self-moving refrigerator called ‘Ku’ is part of Panasonic’s vision of future lifestyles. It is not nearly as cool as R2-D2 serving your desired cold drinks, but it certainly has a lot more to drink and munch from since it is obviously larger. The fridge uses LIDAR, which incidentally Panasonic is already developing, as well as depth sensors to map your home.

3D Artist Turns Strangers Into Pixar-style 3D Cartoon Characters

These days, 3D animation’s realism is rather over-the-top and by ‘over-the-top’, we do mean in an awesome way. It is so freaking realistic that sometimes, it almost blur the line between what’s animation and what’s not. That is the immersion part doing the trick.

However, if you have ever wonder what real-life people may look like in as 3D cartoon characters, well, wonder no more cos’ 3D artist Lance Phan, who specializes in modelling characters, will show you exactly how with Pixar-style 3D cartoon characters based on real people.
