Chongwe River House is a stunning holiday home located in Lower Zambezi National Park, in Zambia, and overlooking the Chongwe and Zambezi rivers. The villa has 4 bedrooms, and a stay can include guides, canoes, a boat, and armed scout and private vehicles for exploring its wild surroundings. Sitting on the deck, under a huge winterthorn tree and next to the large pool, your view across the Zambezi escarpment is magnificent. In the foreground the Chongwe River, a magnet to wildlife, passes by.

World’s First 3D Printed Twin Tip Skateboard

Dutch artist Sam Abbott is the designer of the first fully-functioning skateboard that has been built and modeled using a 3D printer. After winning a competition by 3DprintUK, co-hosted by CGtrader, abbott was chosen to have his concept for a twin tip skateboard printed by the company on a 3D printer. Because the design of the object is slightly longer than the available build tray, the deck is adapted and assembled in pieces — cut into 3 separate sections and joined together with connector pins to ensure optimal accuracy and strength. The surface of the printed board is patterned, and traditional grip tape and trucks are added design features, augmenting the characteristics of a traditional skateboard with a technological twist.

Skateboard Totem.


These aren’t the totem’s from “Inception”, no not at all, artist brilliant designer Chris Parks created a 7 deck totem that would make anyone think they were dreaming when they saw it.  If a buyer issn’t sure if you want all 7 decks, the company Pale Horse has condensed it down to a single-deck version. Pale Horse presented a one-night only exhibit, entitled “Splinters and Papercuts,” showcasing new wood and paper engravings, jewelry, skateboards, t-shirts and prints. For this exhibit, digital illustrator and graphic designer Chris Parks combines his high-detail vector art, including tattoo-style imagery, mythical and religious iconography, and satirical themes, with laser engraving techniques to create custom wood art pieces.
