The Decelerator Helmet allows the user complete control of time, at least the wearer’s perception of time. When the helmet is worn, a camera captures the outside world and displays it on a monitor inside the helmet as well as on a monitor outside the helmet, however the world displayed can be controlled via a remote.
The Mason Lane Farmhouse is located in Goshen, Indiana and was entered into the World Architecture Festival under the category production, energy and recycling. The farmhouse provides shelter for the servicing and re-fuelling and storage of farm equipment on a 2000-acre property that is used for agriculture, recreation, wildlife habitat and conservation purposes.
Swiss architect firm, Peter Kunz, designed these ingenious parking garages that look like they were swallowed by a hungry hillside. Five concrete structures, fronted with glass stick out of the side of a hillside, overlooking the plain in Herden, Switzerland.
The perfect way to display that Porsche you just rolled off the showroom floor, I think.
I love anything that can serve double duty, like a table that folds into a partition, or a cell phone cover with space for your cards and ID. This lampshade from Czech designer Krystyna Pojerova certainly does that. It was developed with the modern desire to grow herbs in the kitchen. The lack of space meant that the herbs would have to be hung from the ceiling. Such an innovative design surely deserves to be put into production.

When Canon began assembling their campaign for the Canon PIXMA printers, they turned to creative studio Dentsu and photographer Linden Gledhill to create a series of paint sculptures using sound vibrations. He managed to create an amazing series of sculptures that look almost otherworldly, when I saw how the images were created in the video below, I was amazed and intrigued by the speeds the camera had to reach, as well as the scale of the actual droplets used to achieve the level of detail. By using simple tools and advanced technical equipment, they managed to get sculptures that illustrate just how amazing the resulting images produced by the Canon PIXMA printers are.
As we start the slippery slope down into Autumn, I thought I would share these lovely pieces of arty leaf cut outs from Lorenzo Duran. If you spot a design that you absolutely love, Lorenzo is more than willing to make another, but as with all handmade art, each and every leaf is totally unique, both before he does the cut outs and after.
Lorenzo washes and dries each leaf he finds, then he carefully cuts away segments in a technique akin to those of traditional spanish picado, chinese jianzhi, german scherenschnitte, or swiss papercutting.
