Wanna Be Superman? Scientists Say It’s Closer Than You Think

A lot of us dream of being Superman, or in my case, Wonder Woman. And, I’m not just saying that because she has big boobs and a 14-inch waist, no, there is just something ultimately cool about being so strong you can beat all the odds. Thanks to a new scientific breakthrough, we can all start deflecting bullets very soon. Researchers at the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) have found a way to transform an ordinary cotton t-shirt in body armor that can stop […]

6 Fast and Easy Ways to Look Younger!

Are you looking for the fountain of youth? I know a lot of people who are always so conscious about their appearance. The majority of them say they want to look younger. Who doesn’t, right? The sales of beauty products that promise younger looking skin are on the rise. This does not only apply to women. I am sure there are guys out there that are also interested in looking younger, but they are just too shy to admit it. A lot of people are […]

Harley Davidson’s Year 2020 Model Revealed

I can’t say that I am an über fan of bikes; however, I have been contemplating getting one a couple of different times during my short lifespan. If I were to get one, I wouldn’t want to get one of those “Ninja” bikes with a 1,000cc to haul my butt around. I’ve never been a spokesman for plastic two wheel toys. I’d rather go for something that is well done and done properly and robustly. So the choice is, of course, angled towards a Harley. […]

How To: Make A Papier Mache Monster

I love anything made with paper, it’s just so versatile. You can create a lot of interesting works of art with paper. For example, you have origami, paper art like cut outs and paper sculptures. Some designers even use paper to create one of a kind paper dresses. I believe @Minervity and @adamsconsulting have written several interesting articles about paper origami, paper dresses, paper shoes, etc… There are so many really interesting things you can do with a piece of paper. Since paper is made […]

Umbrella Cup Holder: Practical Or Hazardous?

I have seen many nifty and genius concept solutions during the past year on Bit Rebels and 80% have actually been quite interesting and useful. However, every now and then, there is a design that I don’t really get or that just seems a little weird or even hazardous. We all know handling steaming hot coffee or tea from you local Starbucks (or whatever brand you like to visit) can be quite a challenge to hold if they’re out of heat shields. What we usually […]

The Watermelon Death Star – Perfect for a Geek’s Picnic

I always played with my food as a kid. It used to drive my mother crazy. I still play with my food as an adult, and I’ve managed to pass this very annoying habit on to my son. To me, it just makes sense. You sit there with a plate of food and your creativity takes over. Whether it’s carving elephants out of chicken or making French fry airplanes, it’s always a good time. RJ Evans who blogs at one of my favorite sites, kuriositas, […]

Augmented Reality Makes Shopping Easier and More Fun

I despise shopping. I know, I’m a freak of nature girl because most of us love it, but not me. I order as much as I can online to avoid going in any stores. However, if this new use for augmented reality was available here in Atlanta, I would be tempted to check it out. In London, there is a jewelry store that allows people passing by the store outside to try on the watches without actually going inside the store. How cool is that? […]

A Rainbow Colored Miracle of Nature to Inspire Your Day

There is nothing like a miracle of nature to put life in perspective. Certain kinds of trees are perfect examples. They patiently grow bigger and stronger over many decades while surviving all types of weather. They never give up or consider a life that doesn’t reach for the sun. The Redwood tree is an inspiring example of this persistence and longevity. It can live up to 2,500 years and get so big you cannot even see the whole thing. If you are unfamiliar with the […]

Carefully Crafted Sculptures Made From Laundry

Our clothes have a lot of character. Take a look inside someone’s closet. It can truly tell a story about that person and their life. When asked where he got the idea for creating sculptures out of second hand clothing, artist Derick Melander said, “When I come across a dress with a hand-sewn repair, or a coat with a name written inside the collar, the work starts to feel like a collective portrait.” Derick even organized an event called “Into The Fold” where he and […]

How To: Turn Your Old Jeans Into Earth Friendly Sandals

I have so many pairs of jeans in different shades of blue. I also have some ripped black ones. I love wearing them. Not only are they comfortable, but they can be a girl’s best friend when it comes to style. You can practically wear anything with a good pair of jeans. Luckily for us at work, we can wear jeans anytime as long as we make sure the top is stylish enough and formal enough to wear to presentations and client meetings. However, sometimes […]

The Laser Suit – Channel John Travolta and Impress the Ladies

This is what I’m talkin about baby! Now you can channel John Travolta ‘ala 1970s in this 2010 style laser suit created by installation designer Wei Chieh Shih. He adorned this nylon jacket with over 200 laser diodes. These stunning red laser beams point everywhere based on the wearer’s curvature. During the day, this looks like a regular spiky well-designed jacket (yellow picture below). Then, at night, when the lights go down and you hit the dance floor, you transform into a dancing King or […]

Sock Streetlights: Let Your Feet Show You The Way

I was surprised when I found this interesting concept design. Why surprised? Well, I never thought I would see anything remotely like it to be honest. Either it’s the stupidest thing ever conceived or the best thing that could ever have graced our feet. Even though it will undoubtedly change the way we use light when we walk, run or jog outside when it’s dark, it’s still quite a radical idea. Imagine a pedestrian having these lights on their feet while walking on the side […]

USB Post-Its: They Are As Cool As They Sound!

I reported earlier about a new kind of Post-It note that looks exactly like a retro diskette called Disk-It. Back when I first saw it, I was amazed by the creativity and the retro look of it. I was downright sure I would be the first in line for a pack. Well, now I guess I have to be unfaithful to my thought and actually throw another really neat post-it idea into the mix. This idea uses the same concept as those two-in-one shampoos and […]

Different Pen and Ink Techniques – Photo Inspiration

When I was in college, I remember I had a professor who made us practice the different pen and ink techniques. It was pretty tedious since he would always make us draw on a 2 ft x 4ft illustration board. We had to finish about two drawings each week. Looking back now, I am glad he made us do that since it enabled us to really sharpen our skills in terms of using cross hatch, stipple and the vertical and horizontal line rendering. Different artists […]

The Toilet Paper Emergency – The Best Use Of Twitter Yet

A lot of people say that tweets are useless and don’t ever really help people right when they need it. Well, after hearing about this story, I will never think that again. I can barely type for laughing so hard. Last week, Twitter user @naika_tei, who lives in Tokyo, was in an electronics store, on the 3rd floor, in the bathroom. After he… well… for lack of a better word went “poo,” he realized there was no toilet paper in the bathroom. He immediately sent […]
