Doodles On Receipts Are Art Like You Have Never Seen Them Before

An Italian artist by the name of Michael Moccia has done some beautiful doodles on rather unusual materials. Normally, we will choose to draw on plain white papers of at least photocopier-grade type, if not actual drawing papers, but Moccia unleashed his creativity on everyday shopping receipts. Yes. You heard that right. Receipts. You know. Those thermal papers (well, usually they are) printed with a list of your purchase along with the prices and stuff? Yeah, those. A strange choice indeed, but the presence of the numbers and words somehow made the art even more alluring. Continue reading Doodles On Receipts Are Art Like You Have Never Seen Them Before

PyeongChang, South Korea Has The Darkest Building On Earth And There’s Nothing Sinister About It

Don’t worry. Hell is not upon us, yet.

Essentially a black silhouette, especially when viewed in low light, the building appears a regular straight sided structure, but it is really not. The blackness of the building managed to conceal its parabolic sides and the many tiny lights scattered around its exterior surfaces further serve to distract observers from this fact.

For some reason, the folks over at Samsung think the cold box in your kitchen deserved to be equipped with a premium quality sound speaker from AKG. Yes. AKG on a refrigerator. Perhaps, having a speaker on a fridge solely for the purpose of audio alerts is nothing of a biggie or even news, but to put an audiophile equipment maker’s item on a fridge is rather eyebrow raising. The AKG speaker will be a staple on Samsung’s 2018 refrigerator line up with Family Hub and it is the first Samsung products to incorporate AKG, or any brand under the Harman marque, since the South Korean electronics giant acquired the 37-year-old U.S. marque last year.

Finally, There Is A Pillow Designed For Couch-loving Folks Who Wear Glasses

There is a joke about how not wearing glasses when sleeping will not allow those with myopia to see their dreams clearly. Obviously, there’s no truth to that. In any case, nobody in the right mind will have their glasses on when they hit the sack because, it is very uncomfortable and also, it runs the risk of damaging the glasses. However, there are exceptions. Like, for examples, you have the not-so-good habit of laying on your side when using the phone, tablet or watching TV. In those instances, glasses is a hindrance, but not if you are resting on The LaySee Pillow. Continue reading Finally, There Is A Pillow Designed For Couch-loving Folks Who Wear Glasses

Louis Vuitton makes a lot of other stuff in addition to the label’s staples like handbags. Apparently, it does waste bin that cost a heart-stopping $4,000 and also apparently, the Parisian fashion label also made these giant trash bins.
