Can you imagine if you had a knob you can turn to sway gravity whichever way you like it? Clemen Wirth’s imaginative experimental video, Gravity, just does that. Water can be poured upwards, paint can drip sideways, flying balloons can fly down and the whole world can be bent in any shape you want. It’d be such a…
Aerospace engineers have come up with some
straight-up insane designs. Sometimes these dreams never make it off the drawing board, but sometimes—some wonderful times—they become real. And when these alien bodies lift off into the firmament, it's like watching a spaceship…
Meet Lost Coves. I'm always at a loss for how to describe them. Experimental stoner rock? Hallucinogenic post-punk crash and bang? I'm not good with genres. What I know is that Lost Coves create soundscapes that suck you in.
Researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) may be on the cusp of creating something special: Bendable batteries that could have better performance than their stiff, inflexible cousins.
A musical duet can be killer—but it rarely looks (or sounds) so strange. Matt West's experimental "Collaborative Instruments" require a duo—but it instead of alternating, they're required to control the same spacey, digital sound at the same time.
The Eames Lounge Chair is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful pieces of furniture ever designed. But as shown by this lovely photo of his "do nothing machine," Charles Eames was as much a tinkerer as a designer.
Professor Tomiki Ikeda, along with his research team at the Tokyo Institute of Technology have developed a plastic motor that runs on direct light. Unlike solar power, there is no need for storing energy before conversion. The motor can achieve this feat thanks to a plastic compound containing azobenzene which…
To say that Windows Mobile web browsers are hard to use would be tantamount to saying babies are fairly easy to beat up. Microsoft's trying to remedy this with their experimental Deepfish web browser, which tries to give you desktop-class rendering on your WM smartphone. Does it work? Well, sorta.
Who here is a girl/knows a girl who wants implants, but gets spooked by the whole silicone aspect? Well it looks like a couple of Japanese scientists have got your back. Their plan is to combine fat from your thigh with some stem cells. Then they take the "soup" and inject it into each of your mammaries. And presto…
