Worlds First 3d Printed Metal Gun By Solid Concepts


Worlds-First-3D-Printed-Metal-Gun-by-Solid-Concepts

It seems there’s no end to 3D printing’s potential, and the world’s first 3D-printed metal gun is the latest innovation to be birthed from the budding technology. Many of you will remember the first 3D printed plastic gun (it was literally toasted after firing off just one shot), but this is something entirely different. The folks at Austin, Texas based Solid Concepts have created a metal 3D-printed gun using DMLS (direct metal laser sintering) technology, and this thing shows a lot of promise. Unlike its plastic predecessor, the metal version of the 1911 series firearm has fired off 50 rounds, and still going strong, with no damage to the gun itself (at least that’s why Solid Concepts says).  Before you get too worried about your neighbor printing out a batch of guns, the company says that “there are barriers to keep the public away from the technology for years.”

The Walking Dead Monopoly Set


The-Walking-Dead-Monopoly-1

AMC finally gets a gift we already knew was coming – an official Walking Dead Monopoly set. After seeing all of the prototype boards over the years, Hasbro has finally decided to release an officially licensed version. While the rules are pretty much the same in this zombie version of the popular game we all know and love, players will now play for resources that will save your life, as oppose to making you rich in the standard version. There are six different collectible tokens to choose from including Michonne’s katana, Rick’s Hat, RV, Lucille (bat), a bucket of body parts, and a telephone symbolizing Rick’s meltdown during season 3 of the show.

Beverly Hills Bachelor Pad By Michael Palumbo


Beverly-Hills-Bachelor-Pad-by-Michael-Palumbo-1

If there was an award for the greatest bachelor pad on Earth, this Beverly Hills masterpiece would certainly be a contender for the title. 1201 Laurel Way is a modern mansion designed by Michael Palumbo and his team of architects. There are few places more desirable than Los Angeles when it comes to living destinations. Sure there’s the smog problem everyone promotes so much, but the place really is beautiful. This 6 bedroom, 10 bathroom residence takes advantage of the stunning coastline views LA has to offer with floor to ceiling windows used heavily throughout the home along with a rooftop terrace and infinity pool to really take it all in. The open floor plan creates a nice social setting, and the spacious garage has plenty of room for your McLaren, Rolls-Royce, and Aston Martin.

Check out these stunning images of poster artwork for the Doctor’s latest adventures. For people who do not follow the show, Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television program produced by the BBC. The program depicts the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord—a time-travelling humanoid alien. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs.

2014 Year of the Horse Watch


general 05

The year of the horse will start from February 2014, replacing the actual snake sign. And the famous Swiss watch manufacturer Vacheron Constantin celebrates the Chinese Zodiac with its new masterpiece. This marvelous extension of the renowned Métiers d’Art collection comes in two versions, either made of pink gold or platinum, each of which is limited to just 12 pieces. The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac is an exclusive line of artistic watches, based on the 12-year cycle. They showcase the leaf motif, characteristic for classic Chinese iconography, which is directly engraved on a gold dial. By subtle stage-setting of numerous reliefs applied to the golden base, the brand’s engravers created a great depth effect, while threads which represent bamboo stalks look like floating over the surface. The most impressive work is visible on the horse figure, with the every single detail executed to the perfection.

07

Thanks to a high-end Calibre 2460 G4, the Legend of the Chinese Zodiac watch displays time and date in a truly unique way. Instead of using hands, this great timepiece features four apertures, placed around the central motif, to reveal discs that show hours, minutes, day and date. Visible through a sapphire crystal case-back, the self-winding movement incorporates a 22 karat gold oscillating mass, decorated by dynamic geometrical motif based on the shape of the Maltese Cross. This mechanism operates at the frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and ensures around 40 hours of power-reserve. Version with a rose gold case features a brown dial and a matching stylish leather strap, while the titanium version comes with a blue dial and a black leather strap. Both cases come with the diameter of 40 mm and have nicely polished finishes.

Stunning Optical Illusions With Makeup

A new project from photographer Alexander Khokhlov is prompting double takes and pushing portraiture in a new direction. The Moscow-based artist’s latest series, dubbed “2D or not 2D,” uses heavy makeup and post-production techniques to transform human faces into seemingly two-dimensional images. “We tried to make ‘alive posters,’” said Alexander Khokhlov. “It’s challenging to make people look like a poster while at the same time not very digitized.” He was working with makeup artist Valeriya Kutsan, and his wife, Veronica, whom he also describes as his muse.

Luminous Sea Creatures

Photographer Joshua Lambus has put together a beautiful series of photographs showing luminous creatures of the deep glowing with light against a pitch-black background. The project is titled “Blackwater.”

The photographs were captured in the ocean during the Hawaii-based photographer’s deep dives. “My photos are to show people things they haven’t seen before… or maybe things they see all the time… in a way they’ve never cared to look,” Lambus writes. Lambus is a veteran of deep dives, having logged hundreds of dives for both personal and commercial purposes. The dives are held in the darkness of the night in water that is thousands of feet deep. Lambus ventures deep under the surface to photograph the animals as they float by.

Electric Helicopter E-Volo VC200


06 05 03 02 01 general

The E-Volo VC200  has become the first electric helicopter to make a successful maiden flight, with multiple flights lasting several minutes and reaching heights of nearly 22 meters high. Together with 18-rotor blades and a disassemblable architectural system, the volocopter has been designed to host two passengers for distances of up to 100km and a flight altitude of up to 6500 ft. Equipped with an automated control system, the pilot no longer needs to worry about flight conditions: the E-copter is controlled via on-board computers that work in coordination with numerous hi-tech sensors. All parts connect to an intelligent mesh network. In the event of a failure of several components, the low-maintenance aircraft is still able to land safely. The construction of the helicopter integrates six rotor arms with three drives which are supplied from different energy sources. Each is powered by 20 independent computers, capable of individually navigating the volocopter in mid-air. In the current prototype of the VC200, the 18 drives are supplied by six central battery blocks with a reserve capacity of 50%; even when two battery blocks fail, a safe landing is possible.

Moet Vending Machines?

After caviar, cupcakes and high-end mascara, now there’s a vending machine selling bottles of luxury bubbly by Moet & Chandon.  In what some see as the champagne house’s attempt at making bubbly more accessible to the general public, the new vending machine at London department store Selfridges dispenses blinged-out mini bottles of bubbly, bedecked with 350 deco-inspired Swarovski mini crystals.  The machine is located in the store’s Christmas section, where shoppers can stock up on 200 ml bottles for £18 ($29) for the holidays.  It’s the latest luxury product to find its way into an automatic dispenser at a time when consumers demand convenience and customer service is becoming increasingly automated.  This spring, Selfridges also debuted a vending machine that sold Chanel mascaras for a limited time.  And last year, the world’s first caviar vending machine debuted in the US for customers with haute snack cravings that go beyond candy bars and chips.  The Beverly Hills Caviar machine dispenses containers of caviar along with all the accoutrements needed to throw a caviar fete or satisfy midnight fish egg cravings, including blinis, truffle oil, Mother of Pearl plates and spoons and gourmet salts.

Kate Stone: DJ decks Made of Paper


ted_5

“I love paper, and I love technology,” says physicist and former sheep herder Kate Stone, who’s spent the past decade working to unite the two. Her experiments combine regular paper with conductive inks and tiny circuit boards to offer a unique, magical experience. To date, applications include a newspaper embedded with audio and video, posters that display energy usage in real time, and the extremely nifty paper drumkit and set of DJ decks she demonstrates onstage. At Novalia, Kate Stone and her team use ordinary printing presses to manufacture interactive electronics, which combine touch-sensitive ink technology and printed circuits into unique and cost-effective products.

D.I.G.I.T. Digital Mirror Display By Teehan and Lax Labs


Picture 19

‘D.I.G.I.T’, the digital mirror by toronto-based design studio teehan+lax labs is a camera feed built from 48 individual, and seven-segment panels that render graphics within the constraints of simple computing. Using techniques such as ASCII and typewriter art, the panels are determined with a single arduino micro-controller and receives commands from an open Frameworks application running on a raspberry pi computer. The system flips the LED sequence on and off depending on what it perceives as the background frame (when nobody is in front of the D.I.G.I.T unit) and the current frame during intervention. Hand motions are translated into real-time digital interactions, where numbers and symbols become kinetic silhouettes. Click on the picture above to watch the video about it.

Marina Bay Sands Casino Infinity Pool and Base Jumping

What could make the view from the infinity pool atop the Marina Bay Sands casino, soaring some 55 stories above Singapore, even more surreal? Human bodies jumping off of the roof behind you. Singapore have indicated the city-state is not synonymous with taking bold risks, which is perhaps why a stunt-spectacle like base jumping was chosen to promote the casino.

Lambos for Your Legs

Upon seeing Lamborghini’s wild Veneno concept, experienced shoe designer Jeremiah Obuobi felt compelled to design a shoe that embodied the same design language. The result is this wicked-looking runner that, like the Lambo, is focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability to achieve a equally dynamic experience when the wearer tackles the road on foot rather than by car.
