  • This Magnetic Art Project: How Does It Work?

    This Magnetic Art Project: How Does It Work?

    While I find that I like my ferrite-based Kickstarter art projects to be a bit more automatic, the Ferrite Interactive Liquid Sculpture is still pretty cool. It’s a tube containing a Ferrofluid – a suspension of ferrite particles – that is shock-resistant enough to survive a few tumbles. You can use a magnet to create odd shapes, experience the magic fo magnetics, and you can… Read More

  • Artist's Portraits Of CRTs Turning Off Are Eerily Beautiful


    Gadget-related art is a bit hard to find, but every once in a while something crosses my desk (like the Facade printer, man-powered clock, or high-voltage imagery) that’s just too cool to pass up. These “Luminant Point Arrays” by Stephan Tillmans are photos of the pattern created when you switch off certain old CRT monitors. You know you’ve seen it. You’ve… Read More

  • Gadg-Art: Love It, But Don't Really Use It.

    It looks like a tiny bugle. Maybe a new way to measure shots for a drink? Maybe a Cracker Jack toy? A fancy oil funnel? A tiny phonograph horn designed by Eero Saarinen? A mod megaphone? An egg separator? A microscope?  A straw for Tony Montana-style mountains of blow? A wicked monocle?  Read More

  • Dutch Art Project Helps Prepare For Zombie Attack

    Not quite sure where to go when the zombies attack? Dutch designer Joep van Lieshout has just the thing for you: the Vostok Cabin. Built out of welded together plates from dead ships, what the Vostok Cabin lacks in comfort, it makes up for it security. Read More

  • Fortis Andora Emotion Limited Art Edition Watch

    Holy crap, what is this thing? I realize this is one of Fortis’ edgy “Art Edition” watches, but wow. This is unexpected for even the art version of the serious tool watch brand’s products. Limited to just 100 pieces and in a 42mm wide titanium case, this watch isn’t just an (questionably bastardized) artist’s rendering of a Fortis chronograph watch, but… Read More

  • Meet The Bicycle That Fits In A Briefcase

    When you say “foldable bicycle”, the first thing that comes to mind are those ugly little things with small tires, intended for the vacationer set. Turns out that there are other designs as well, bicycles that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to ride in public, but will still fold up small enough to fit into a briefcase. Read More

  • Facade printer creates wall-size illustrations with paintballs

    At long last, a way to write off that paintball gun you’ve always wanted as “art supplies.” Read More

  • Are video games art?

    I’m hesitant to write this because, really, who cares? And I don’t mean that in a negative, cynical way at all, but rather in a practical way. Clearly there are people who enjoy playing video games, just as there are people who enjoy creating video games. Why should these people concern themselves with whether or not Roger Ebert, a 67-year-old man who wouldn’t know the… Read More

  • There's Gelaskins for iPad now~!

    Forgot to mention this last night, so apologies in advance. Y’all know Gelaskins, right? The neat-looking, device-sized decals that you stick to your laptop, phone, or whatnot? They’re available for the iPad now. Rejoice! Read More

  • Rat Rod bikes – the bicycle as art?

    Living in Nevada, I get to see all kinds of art projects on the road as Burning Man approaches. I will admit however, that none of them look quite as cool as these, a combination of the “rat-rod” and an art bicycle. Read More
