Toby NG has posed the question…. “if the world were a village of 100 people, what would its composition be?”.  This set of 20 posters is built on statistics about the spread of population around the world under various classifications. The numbers are turned into graphics to give another sense a touch – Look, this is the world we are living in.

Aetho wants to bring stabilizers to consumers everywhere with the ‘Aeon’. Traditional very large stabilizers used by video professionals, the ‘aeon’ is a handheld tool that is ergonomic and lightweight for creating smooth, cinematic videos.

To keep it stable, the gadget uses sensors to detect the three axes and makes adjustments 1,000 times per second. With every counter movement, the ‘aeon’ employs three brushless motors to move the camera. To view the footage, the ‘aeon’ includes a two-inch circular screen so videographers can see the ‘GoPro’s’ perspective. Weighing only 500 grams, the stabilizer is made from injection molded ABS plastic and features a five-hour battery that can be charged using a USB cable.  To frame more interesting footage, the aetho ‘aeon’ has a universal mount that works with all official ‘GoPro’ accessories. The video stabilizer is available for purchase on their indiegogo page, with a plan to ship to buyers in early 2016.

Lord of the Rings-Inspired Hotel


Located in the Black Hills of South Dakota is a place perfect for any fan of Middle Earth. Nicknamed the Hobbit treehouse, this elevated rental property is owned by Gordon Mack, a man who was inspired by the beloved Lord of the Rings films. Perched 16 feet above the ground, the structure has rounded doors and windows, with an interior space that’ll make Tolkien devotees swoon, by including details like: Elvish-language signs; a mask worn by Sauron; and a gauntlet with the gold ring. There are even Hobbit-feet slippers that are specially tailored for all age groups.

To stay in this whimsical locale, you must book the country house that it’s attached to. It’s called the Chateau De Soleil, and the four-bedroom building can accommodate up to 16 people at a time. This makes it ideal for a large family, and the treehouse complements the getaway as a fun and special place for kids to stay.

 

Modern Santorini Cave


Located in the town of Oia, Greece is 1864 – The Sea Captain’s House, a luxury hotel that overlooks the gorgeous seaside landscape on Santorini island. The lodging, which was once a 19th-century sea captain’s home (as the name suggests), has been converted into several stunning accommodations, including one called the Cave suite. This unit was recently renovated by PATSIOS Architecture, who applied a nearly all-white color scheme to the entire space. This interior design technique creates an open, airy feel, despite its distinct lack of windows.

The Cave suite is designed as an ideal location for two to four guests. Its large space has two bedrooms, dressing areas and bathrooms—each made of white marble, and one also has a deep soaking tub. After relaxing in the bath, visitors can take advantage of the private yard and seaside terrace, basking in the warm Grecian sun.

Danish-born Maria Rubinke‘s small porcelain figures are reminiscent of the illogical compositions of surrealism, transforming the character of what are traditionally charming and passive objects into expressions of more taboo feelings that oscillate between desire and sadism.   (Also, Halloween is right around the corner so we figured you guys can get inspired). And remember, art is very diverse and speaks to different people in various ways.
