Interactive Wooden Landscape

This is pretty neat, ETM: Exploration Through Motion is an interesting view of a once static asset.  A team of students from the Philadelphia University created this as their final project in Design 1.  Together, they took the Thomas Moran painting “Grand Canyon of the Colorado River”, and made a 3D laser cut map diorama … Continued

IRL Mario Kart

This week is a plethora of re-creating childhood memories in real life.  Next up is the classic game of Mario Kart.  Go Karting is nothing new, power ups are sorely lacking from the experience however.  Four students of Colorado State University’s mechatronics class, Alex Zenk, Katie Johnson, Floyd Bundrant, and Jacob Gover decided to make … Continued

Blue Rubber Yard

Reddit user LogicWavelength decided to re-surface the sliver of his back yard from river rocks to blue rubber playground material.  Unlike seemingly everyone else on the reddit thread, I really like the new look.  I’d never do it myself based on just the annoying of keeping that looking fresh and clean, but I like it much … Continued

I really like the random way she marked … Continued

Yes, a 3rd lamp post this month.  Sue me.  Instructable user Trask River Productions has put together a very comprehensive 34 step instructable on how to make this really good looking Log lamp shown above.  Honestly, it looks very well made, which makes sense considering the person/company.  I’m impressed with cutting out all the wood … Continued

Just over 1 year ago Charles Young set himself a goal.  At times it seemed simple, other times it was excessive, but in the end, it was impressive.  Each day for one full year, he would craft a new unique paper model using 220gsm paper and glue.  On August 10, 2015 he finished his year … Continued

Storage -> Loft

reddit user psychemagic has turned an old run down storage unit into a super nice, one room loft. This is what the outside looked like, big ugly black doors. And after some new brick work, a nice new door and some small windows, it looks 100% better: The inside of the building was equally as … Continued
