This Revolutionary Tattoo Contains Audio Playable Using A Smartphone

There are many reasons why people chose to have tattoos and not surprisingly, remembrance ranks high on the list. Remembering someone, or paying tribute to a person you love or respect, by inking his or her portrait on the skin seems like the closest thing someone can do, but one company is taking this ‘in memory of’ thing to a whole new level. Skin Motion has developed a new tattoo method like you have never seen, or more correctly hear, before. This revolutionary tattoo, aptly called Soundwave tattoo, goes beyond visual remembrance; it lets you playback up to a minuted of pre-recorded audio using an app on your smartphone.

Razer’s CEO Asked How Razer Chroma Frap Might Look Like, Here’s Our Take

You know all the fad about Starbucks’ newest seasonal drink, the Unicorn Frappuccino. I am sure you also read about how it is “not as advertized,” but we are not going talk about how it is, or it is not “as advertized.” We are at it because about a day ago, Razer’s CEO posted a question on his Facebook page. He commented that since Starbucks has their Unicorn frap, he wonder what would a Chroma frap from Razer look like? Continue reading Razer’s CEO Asked How Razer Chroma Frap Might Look Like, Here’s Our Take

Extremely Dirty Vehicles Are Canvases For This Talented Artist

You know what separate artists with the talent to adapt from other ‘regular’ artists? It would be the ability to improvise and turn out amazing illustrations in situ. No paints, no brushes, no nothing, and such is what Moscow-based artist and illustrator Nikita Golubev AKA ProBoyNick has demonstrated. How? Well, it turns out that extremely dirty vehicles found on the streets can also serve as perfect canvases for this very talented, adaptive artist to showcase his (or her?) work of art. What Golubev did was “etching” images of animals on them (the dirty vehicles) with a process which involves “cleaning” the dirt to create an image.

The Art of Ghost In The Shell: The Visuals That Made The Movie Possible

Yeah. We heard and read about the fiasco regarding the live action movie adaption of one of Japan’s most iconic sci-fi anime, Ghost in the Shell. I am a sci-fi nut (short of being a futurist) and so I am not going to be bothered by the so-called ‘white-washing’ or whatever it is that people are debating. But the name change there is kind of weird though (seriously? Major Mira?). Anywho, if you are all pumped up about Ghost in the Shell, well, then Insight Editions may have just the right stuff for you: The Art of Ghost in the Shell (ISBN-13 978-1683830009) by David S. Cohen.

These Furniture Are Arts Inspired By Hong Kong’s Dense Urban Landscape

Hong Kong-based Italian designer Andrea Ponti is best known for beautiful, practical designs ranging from air purifier to smartwatch to suitcases, but little known to us consumers is, he is very much a man of art and thus he does what he does. And that, my friends, bring us to an exciting news. Andrea’s studio, Ponti Design Studio, is hitting up Milan Design Week, happening from April 4-9, with a wonderful and representative art project called Shadows in the Windows.

These Toy Figures Photos Are The Best Thing To Happen To Plastic Toys

Toy action figures you find at retail stores like Toy’r Us are, well, just toys. Unlike those coming from Hot Toys, they are designed to be played with (or should we say, ‘toyed’ with) by kids and sometimes, grown ups like myself. In other words, they are hardly worthy of collectors’ time. I guess we can blame it on its mass-produced, less-than-idea quality, but one Japanese Instagrammer, Hot.Kenobi, changed the way we look at these ‘toy-quality’ action figures.

Look, Chevrolet Built A Life-size The LEGO Batman Movie’s Batmobile

During the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) last month, American automaker surprised visitors with a unlikely ‘concept car’: a life-size LEGO Batmobile straight out of LEGO animated flick The LEGO Batman Movie. Created in collaboration with students from Detroit’s Cody Rouge community, A World in Motion and First LEGO League, this bricksomeful crimefighting vehicle, which stretches 17 feet long (a little shorter than Sawaya’s creation), measures 9.25 feet across and stands 6.92 feet tall (about 5.2 x 2.8 x 2.1 meters), is made up of a whopping 344,187 LEGO bricks and weighs in at a hefty 1,695.5 pounds (769 kg). The tires alone account for 400 pounds (181 kg), each weighing no less than 100 pounds (45 kg!). Continue reading Look, Chevrolet Built A Life-size The LEGO Batman Movie’s Batmobile

Intel Shooting Star Drones Light Up Lady Gaga’s Show At Super Bowl

In yet another prove that lighted drones are here to replace traditional fireworks as the light show of choice, Intel, together with NFL, Pepsi and Lady Gaga, pulled off the first-ever drone integration during a televised event during the Super Bowl event on Sunday, February 5, 2017. The result is as expected: spectacular, made even fantastic by the Lady’s unequivocal stage presence and performance. Mind you, I do not in anyway worship Lady Gaga, but I am not going to lie, as a normal being, I sometimes can’t help but to jive to her tunes.

Backed By Geometric Principles, This Shit Is Literally Golden

Look. We are not here to judge, but I will be honest, saints we are not and therefore, we can’t promised we won’t judge a person with a fetish for “decoration defecation.” Oh, you don’t know if you have such fetish? It’s ok. Just take a look at the 3D printed Archimedean Turd and if you kind of fancy it, then you have a fetish for decoration defecation. Don’t be ashamed, though and don’t make excuses like “because it looks like a perfectly laid pile of poop and it is an art.” Well, I got news for you. This ain’t art. It’s poop science, or more accurately, poop mathematics cos’ its geometry is, apparently, backed by geometric principles including the Archimedean spiral (r = a + bθ) and the Golden Ratio/Phi in triangles where a=1, b=√φ, and c = φ.

Fantastic Beasts Chinese Posters Made Fantastic Beasts Even More Mythical

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a fantasy movie that’s, well, mystical. Ancient art, particularly, Asian ancient art, is kind of mystical too. So, marrying the two together seems like a logical thing to do and that, folks, was what Chinese artist Zhang Chun did. His series of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Chinese movie posters were designed in classic painting technique known as gongbi art style which dated as far back as the 16th century (Yuan and Ming Dynasty). Like the Pokémon creatures reimagined in ancient Japanese Ukiyo-e we saw last month, Zhang’s iterations seem like, how do you say? Right at home? Yeah, something like that.
