Who cares about polygons - this is what gaming should look like! Having taken some classic retro gaming scenes, artist Orioto has reworked them as if the title was in high-definition, hence the lush The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past shot here and others - including Sonic and Mario - in the gallery after the cut.
A typical manually focus camera lens shows focus distances and aperture values, but this innovative camera lens designed by Sharad Haksar, has adjustable ring elements to form calendar.
Sculpted from a single aluminum block into a lens shape, the front ring elements are marked with the year, month and date instead of the focus distance, shutter speed and aperture values you would normally expect from a camera lens. Each ring controls an aspect of the calendar to cue dates from 2008 to 2032. We aren’t sure if the calendar feature is powered electronically to keep data up to date, but we are pretty sure it doesn't come in F or EF bayonet mount.
Some of us oldies may have a hard time adapting to the new advances in technology. Those of us who are holding onto old devices with a death grip wont necessarily have to let to in order to be with the times, we all just need a little upgrade.
A snow globe is old tech. An iPhone is new tech. Put them together and you'd think you'd get broken tech, but if you're Daljit Singh then you actually end up with the Digital Snow Globe. Sensibly avoiding water, the project is basically an elongated snow globe housing an iPhone; when you shake the globe, the iPhone displays the weather from a randomly-selected city.
Design studio GOGO believe you should work for your consumer goods, rather than expect something perfectly-formed dropping off the production-line. Their latest item, called "Log Radio", is pretty much exactly as the name might suggest: a length of wood with radio hardware installed and the buyer left to saw off their new gadget.
These papercraft sculptures have been around for some time now, but there's nothing like a little hand-cranked hypnosis for kicking off a Tuesday morning. The work of Paper engineer Haruki Nakamura, it was actually submitted to an art contest back in 2005.

I think a lot of people have an artistic urge within them. You know, to create something where there once was nothing. But a lot of the time, the trouble with painting is the mess. Plus, it can be expensive to acquire all the supplies.
This Staring Cats Light Sculpture was designed by Steve Bishop and it really is unique. And though it reminds me of those statues with the glowing eyes in The Neverending Story, this cat sculpture works much the same way without the threat of incineration.
Toby Fraley has created some very interesting sculptures made from found objects or "Junque" to form robots that light up. Each seems to have a personality all its own and though you can distinguish what individual components the bots are made of, you can clearly see the overall piece as something "new."
Dell have taken the wraps off of another round of Special Art Edition notebooks, designed by Mike Ming. Three new pattern options for the Studio 15 and Studio 17 notebooks are on offer, titled Red Swirl, Seaweed and Sunburst, with the artwork "tattooed" onto the cover.
