    These mechanical watch movement cuff links are made from 20th century gears, levers, and jewels, and set in 18K gold. The watch innards were all taken from authentic vintage watches from the early to mid 20th century. Judging from their description I can't figure out if they're... / Continue →

    This is Batman's new suit from the upcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight. And wow does it look good. It looks like actual body armor, instead of the typical skin-tight latex with nipples drawn on. Although really, nothing says "I'm scary and here to kick ass" like some fake nip... / Continue →

    Designers Mike and Maaike found some low resolution pictures of famous and expensive jewelry using Google Image Search and then stole, doctored, and transferred the images to leather. The result is this pixelated leather jewelry which I guess resembles the real thing from reall... / Continue →

    I can't tell if this is the best landing I've ever seen or the worst. But it's definitely the most insane. I'm pretty sure the pilot got his license out of the inside of a Cracker Jacks box. ... / Continue →

    The always awesome Japanese have created a line of lingerie for your cellphone. For about $9 you can get a pair of bra or panties which you can attach and hang from it. And if you don't want to put them on your cellphone I guess you could always wear it. I mean, 2 inch lingerie... / Continue →

    "Playground Fence", designed by Tejo Remy, is a playful re-interpretation of playground fences. Not only are the protrusions and recessions of the fence eye-catching, but they allow for a more active interaction between those on either sides of the fence, providing seats, ben... / Continue →

    Datamancer has put together this flatbed scanner built into a bound leather book. The scanner sits inside a sheet metal frame with the book built around it. There's really no practical use for this, but it looks super cool. I guess you could pretend to put a piece of paper in y... / Continue →

    The Box is designed to look like a normal cardboard box but it's actually soft and built for sitting on. And they look cool and all, but the site lists the price as €349 (about $465 US dollars) which is just absolutely ridiculous. For that price they should be made out of Fab... / Continue →

    The TSK-VX7 is a touch-screen wireless keyboard that was presented during Computex Taipei 2007. Since there's no keys to push down on it seems way too easy to make errors. It looks cool (and by cool I mean stolen from Star Trek), but I can't see this actually functioning as a m... / Continue →

    SureFire has created the Titan, which they claim is the world's first luxury flashlight. It's the first (and only) fully variable-output flashlight and has an operating range from zero to 65 lumens. There are no preset levels meaning you can get every output level in between. I... / Continue →

    If you've got $56,000 lying around (and really, who doesnt?) you can get yourself this full size Camarasaurus Dinosaur Replica. It stands 6 meters high and 17 meters long, and is basically the coolest possible thing you could ever put on your lawn. Unless, you know, you dug up ... / Continue →

    The folks at Heiron & Smith have put together this ridiculous home theater pool table which they call The Executive. It costs $12,000 but it's well worth it, my friends. Why? Because it has built in speakers, a tiny LCD screen (which you'd probably have to sit on the ground to ... / Continue →

    The guys over at Surrealien have developed a process of placing wallpaper so that it looks distorted by the objects it surrounds. Whereas wallpaper is usually placed haphazardly around objects, the warping wallpaper is placed consciously with the environment. Although if you ac... / Continue →

    This is a PSA on the importance of seat belts. I'm a little curious how they managed to film it though. Either they've got some really good special effects guys or they just murdered two people. Watch the video after the jump. ... / Continue →

    This floating light bulb is part of an art exhibit that will be shown at Sonar in Barcelona later this week. It's electromagnetically levitated and powered wirelessly so that it'll be on while floating in midair. If somebody could make a commercial version I'm sure they'd be hu... / Continue →

    The Auto Mower is like a giant Roomba for your lawn. It self-charges at a docking station and then goes off and mows your lawn on its own or at a set schedule. The thing costs $2,000, but is more environmentally friendly than regular gas-powered lawnmowers. Plus regular lawn mo... / Continue →
