This hairy “mirror” is both fascinating and unnerving

If you have issues with clumps of fur or hair that seemingly move on their own, now would be a good time to look away. Otherwise, proceed at your own risk and be mesmerized, or revolted, by this one of a kind mirror.

Instead, it creates a silhouette "reflection" made up of only two colors and created by an array of 928 faux fur pom poms.

Now the Japanese carmaker is back with its new NX crossover, apparently trying to prove how "cool" it is by outfitting it with wheels and tires carved from actual blocks of ice.

Why Banksy just painted Steve Jobs

Why Banksy just painted Steve Jobs

Syrian refugees are being downtrodden by Republican leaders and presidential candidates aplenty. Rogue graffiti artist Banksy has something to say about that. In a painting in the Jungle refugee camp in the French port of Calais, Banksy painted a portrait of Jobs holding a sack and carrying an old-school Apple computer.
