Koisea: Japanese Bomber Jackets.


I had someone ask me recently what I wanted for this coming Christmas.  Much to my she-grin, I couldn’t give a straight answer, because I had no idea… Until I saw these incredible Japanese Bomber Jackets over at KoiSea.com. They all, each have an individual style, both mens and women’s.  If you’re looking for something unique, I highly suggest you check them out.

There’s A New Reason To Recycle… Art.

Once you’re done drinking out of an aluminum can, there isn’t much left to do but recycle it. Not for Japanese artist Makaon, though. He takes these would-be discarded cans and turns them into sculptures featuring characters from popular culture. We see the Super Mario Brothers, Batman, Pikachu, and even Buzz Lightyear crafted out of the various colorful packaging.

To construct these works, Makaon takes small pieces of the aluminum and bends it to form the shapes that he wants. Any given sculpture might have two or three different brands of drinks depending on their color. Coca Cola provides Mario with a bright red hat while Carlsberg Beer gives Yoshi his green sheen. Makaon has also managed to find a label that includes a peachy skin tone in its design, meaning that he can accurately depict the human faces. Each character is angular in shape with a rigid-looking build. But, this doesn’t stop them from feeling like a fun and energetic tribute to the pop culture icons that we know and love.

After BMW recently debuted their BMW M4 coupe, it only seems fitting that their Japanese rival would release its class contending model. Equipped with a 5.0 liter V8 engine, the exact power output is still unknown at this point, but there are some things we do know. A 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission sends roughly 500 horsepower (some early reports say 460 hp) to the wheels, which should provide an impressive 0-60 mph time.

100 Colors Exhibition – Japan

With our fascination with both minimalism and color, we’ve kept an eye on Emmanuelle Moureaux, the French-born and Tokyo-based architect famous for her use of candy-hued colors in many of her projects. For many years, Moreaux has explored the use of color and the use of the traditional Japanese paper screens as dividers. Many of her projects in retail, hospitality and public spaces express some combination of the two, using colorful screens as dividers and using color as a space maker.

Japanese machine shop owner hitoshi takahashi built this 11-meter-tall robotic walking beetle called KABUTOM RX-03. The mobile sculpture, which takes its name from kabuto — a type of rhinoceros beetle typical to Japan — features characteristics typical to the insects like pointing horns and elongated legs. With over 30 moving parts, the machine includes a variety of technological details, such as the ability to shoot steam from the top of its head and its remote controlled legs that can reach speeds up to 4 kilometers per hour. Weighing 17 tons in total, the robot can transport up to seven people with one driver riding on top and six occupants fitting in an internal compartment.
