So Many Faucets

Seriously, who knew that the lonely faucet had so many new ways to operate?  If you don’t believe me, search for “faucet” on Yanko Design, (or just click that link).  At the time of this writing, there’s 13 pages worth.  Sure, some of them are stupid crazy things, but some are actually pretty neat.

This swirling pattern faucet is what first sparked my interest.

It is neat, and it probably is less harsh on your hands, but I don’t know 2 things.  1 – how much water it will actually save.  There’s the paradox of you’re using less of something, but that something is so cheap now that you’ll end up using more of it anyway.  In this case, the price of the water hasn’t changed, but the delivery method is so neat that people will watch it more then usual.  And secondly, as someone on imgur pointed out, calcium deposits.

Next on the list is this strange one that directs a waterfall upwards.

water-up

How it’s expected to get this perfect curve I’ll never understand.  Anyone who’s played with a hose will know that that stream will work for about 2 seconds, then fall apart and mess everything up.  The creators think the water fountain like design will make it easier to brush your teeth, I think that’s quite an edge case.  But hey, it’s a free concept!

The Ring Faucet though is my favorite:

I could conceive of this faucet in a bathroom at my house.  Provided I had a wife that would allow it, or a workshop where I could tinker with things that is.  While I don’t share all of the sentimental things that the designer does, I do think that the ring of water falling down is quite cool.  Like most humans, I could watch moving water for hours on end, so I think this might end up needing to go into the guest bathroom where I won’t see it often enough to waste the water.

I totally could put this on the wall and get looks from people though.  What are you supposed to put in that hole?

LEGO Food Truck

Imgur user xadrian built his own LEGO Food Truck.  I gotta say, the thing looks ace.  There’s plenty of attention to detail on the inside.  And actual flames on the side, not a baby decal.  Actual. Flames.

Doesn’t this guy look dangerous?

Logan

I’m extremely sad that Logan will be the last time that Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine.  He’s one of those perfectly cast characters, and someone that you will really have a hard time finding a replacement for.  The X-Men have always been my favorite comic book movie series.  Honestly, I was never a comic book fan, but that movies, those I love.  What makes The X-Men franchise so good in my opinion is the consistency.  The same actors have reprised their roles over 17 years.  You don’t see that often.  Not to mention, the actors they got to play the roles are pretty close to perfect.

Anyway, I like the above marketing play that they put together.  It’s very modern.  Plus, The Hydraulic Press Channel is fun.

The Ultimate Showdown 2

This is an interesting update to the classic video The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.  However, it’s filled with recent additions to the super-hero landscape.  Sure there are some classics: The T-800, Indy, Luke, but all newer takes on the famous heroes/villains of modern times.  Plus, there’s no catchy music playing in the background.  Maybe that’s what I miss the most.  Anyway, watch the above, it’ll keep you enjoyed for 8 minutes, then watch the original after the break:

The Netherlands 2nd

2017 really is strange isn’t it?  I’m turning into a political extravaganza with all of these posts.  I will say though, I like comedy, especially the above video which is mostly in English.  What good is being worried if you can’t laugh at the ridiculousness of the world.  Besides, do you really think things are going to spiral out of control?  No Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, I don’t.

LEGO Speaker System

Finished LEGO Speaker

Well, more accurately, it’s a single sub-woofer, not an entire system.  And, technically, it’s made of LEGO(R) compatible blocks.  But hey, let’s stop with the specifics, it’s a speaker, it’s DIY, and it’s gotten me on an urge to make my own – properly.

This LEGO speaker was built by reddit user /u/FanOfSport.  It’s pretty ace if you ask me.  I don’t know if mike ever posted, but he went on a major speaker building initiative while we were in college.  I never really cared so much for them, my ears are not as trained as that and I’d rather pay someone for it.  All that being said, I love making things, and I love LEGOs.  Ever since I saw this on reddit last week, I’ve wanted to make my own.  Unfortunately, I don’t know the first about making speakers, and I don’t really care so much, I want to make a simple box like this, except not a sub-woofer, just a simple speaker.  Oh well, I have time, maybe I’ll start looking into how to make it.  Or maybe I’ll just give up and buy regular ones.

He’s got a large Imgur album here that you can look though on the whole process.

The Penny Floor Duo

penny floor

Reddit user toooners made a floor completely covered in pennies. It took about a month because of some trial an error.  They ran out of tarnished pennies at one point, so that had to be artificially done.  I can’t notice the difference between the naturally dark brown ones, and the tanned ones, I’m sure though that had I spent all the time making the floor, I would.

penny progress

The room itself doesn’t look that large, but this is a time consuming process.  Especially once you look more closely and realize that all the pennies are placed in rows of heads, than tails, and all of them face the same direction.  It’s nice, dedication to the cause, I like it.

Check out the entire Imgur album, it’s quite a ride.
