Design Studio Turns Playful Design Of Foil Balloons Into A Clock That Pops

If like your clock to pop and fun at the same time, well then, you gotta check out the Aria Balloon Clock conceived by Seoul-based industrial design studio Heart Storming Design. As the product name suggests, the clock is inspired by fun, playful characteristics of Mylar foil balloons. What’s brilliant about this clock is the clever use of the natural wrinkles found on the balloon as the hour markers. The ‘inflated’ clear bubble that represents one side of the balloon serves as an attractive ‘cover’ to the clock, opening up an unhindered view to the oversized hour and minute hands even from afar. I must say, that’s an absolutely refreshing change to the norm where clocks are usually are flat in design no matter what forms they took on.

Artist Wants You To Have Digital Bird That Travels The World In Your Home

Internet of Things let you connected, let you control physical devices, but this Internet of Things here does not. It is not ‘useless’ either. Instead, it has a unique and interesting pitch: it wants to put a digital bird in your house. Aptly called Birdhouse, what makes thing fun is, you can’t see the ‘bird’; you can only hear it and what’s more, this ‘bird’ is not always in the birdhouse. The idea is, it will ‘fly’ from Birdhouse to Birdhouse like a real migrating bird does. It will never know when it will come by; it is random and that’s precisely what makes Birdhouse interesting. You can, however, try to coax it to your home by touching the peg on the Birdhouse. Continue reading Artist Wants You To Have Digital Bird That Travels The World In Your Home

Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures

You know is it with stock action figures and dolls. They hardly resembles the person they took after. I don’t want to question why manufacturers of these expensive collectibles can’t get the facial features right. But hey, that’s probably a good thing because it leaves a void for exceedingly talented repaint artist like Philippine-born, US-based Noel Cruz a chance to unleash his talents and thus doing justice to the celebrities who the action figures/dolls took the image. How else would you turn ugly Emma Watson doll from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast into like what she supposed to be right? The works of Noel Cruz need no advertisement. The results speak for themselves. Continue reading Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures

Cold War Era Nuclear Shelter Vent Turned Into R2-D2 By Mysterious Artist

The sight of nuclear shelters is actually pretty sad. However, they were necessary evils during the height of the Cold War era and are found in and around Central and Eastern Europe. Clearly, someone is not fond of these relics of the Cold War history and has took it upon himself (or herself, we don’t know) to turn the air vent of one of the two nuclear shelter in Folimanka Park in the Czech Republic’s capital, Prague, into the iconic and adorable droid from the Star Wars franchise, R2-D2. The result is pretty surprisingly awesome. Continue reading Cold War Era Nuclear Shelter Vent Turned Into R2-D2 By Mysterious Artist

This “Floating” 3D Zebra Crossing Is Sure To Get Motorists’ Attention

Zebra crossing is one form of pedestrian crossing that is both easy and cheap to implement, but its effectiveness varies. Sometimes the alternating dark and light stripes (typically, white against the black of the tarmac) are not immediately eye catching, which is probably why in countries like Singapore, additional blinking lights are installed at both end of the crossing in some locations. So, when we first stumble upon the 3D Zebra Stripe Crosswalk In Ísafjörður Iceland, my immediate thought was: motorists will for sure notice it! I mean, just look at it. How can they not?
