Here is some short footage on the recent work on quantum levitation by the Japanese Institute of Science and Technology. They were inspired by the game Wipe'out to do their work. With this new technology, we hope to revolutionize the world of motor transport; Maybe in a near future they could assist to a real Wipe'out race.
Mike Doyle builds amazing LEGO houses and he writes about it as well.
This is quite insane, Scott Weaver worked on this piece of art for over 35 years! And he used about 100,000 toothpick building it. I am really impressed, and as you can see in the movie the artist has some trouble taking his eyes away from it, he's proud and not afraid to show it ;-)

Anne-Marie Geurink had just finished her study product design at the Art Academy of Arnhem. We visited the exhibition and were very impressed by her work. In search of new consumers she found a whole DIY healthcare world on the internet. Lots of youtube movies with instructions. She decided to design packages with specially designed instruments and materials to perform the explained procedures.
Everybody knows that gangs reign in their own certain neighbourhood and that they will defend it with bloody battles. What I didn't know yet is that these gangs had their own business cards! At least they had them in the 70's - early 80's as these pictures show. Creative talents those dirty ol' bastards!
People in Pakistan make such beautiful decorations on their trucks, can you imagine something like this driving around Europe? There's a nice article in Items (dutch design magazine) this month, and I have some nice websites to go with that. Dude Craft has also some very nice other posts to check out.
The sixth O.K. Periodicals will be released on the 8th of July.
After a bit of a delay (sorry for that) we'll be officially releasing the BORING issue. As you know this magazine is pleasantly disruptive and always curious for inspiring creative work. Maybe the Boring theme is a paradox, but wait until you see all the stunning visuals and read the fascinating stories. Being bored seems to be a most interesting state of mind for people to become even more creative.
We got some big names featuring this issue, and a large part of relatively unknown creative talent as well. All of them deserve a beautiful representation to a bigger audience. This is just one of those magazines you wish you bought before it sold out (we're only printing 500 collectibles).
O.K. Periodicals #6 is featuring: Harmen Liemburg, Gemma Correll, Francis Alÿs, Tom Gauld, Petra Kruijt, Meyoko, Pixy Liao, Simon Wild, Atle Mo, We Make Carpets, Helmut Smits, Jaap Blonk, Mr. Bingo, Berndnaut Smilde, Hans Eijkelboom, Sam Durant and many more...
Official Release Drinks!

Don't know why, but recently a Dutch girl got a tattoo of 152 of here facebook "friends".. Maybe it's some kind of joke, promotion or advertizing thing but this is what she says about it here self: "It shows who I am and in what time I'm living"
Recently I came across the image above. I found it very fascinating, and saved it in my personal 'source of inspiration' folder. Not knowing what to do with it, but these things always turn up quite usefull. Such as now, when someone (forgot who did...) posted this on facebook. A time lapse video made by VLT, Very Large Telescopes. Magnificent and beautiful! Have a look at the video. (I don't like the music, so you can turn that off)
Cancer seems to be cured, but no-one noticed. Why?
