The Fliz Bike is a prototype from Germany intended to promote the use of bicycles in the urban space. It looks weird, which entirely changes the way we ride bicycles, has been designed without any pedals and even no saddle. The Fliz also gets rid of the seat, and hangs the rider from the frame in a rather uncomfortable-looking sling. The Fliz Bike concept has been entered for a James Dyson design award. Watch the video!
"I have always been very attracted by the photograph's ability to cross time and create this kind of comparisons," she says. "There is something sad, almost tragic, about looking at old photographs compared to new ones and seeing how people and things have changed or grown up. After all, it is said that time has been accepted as a common means of measuring life because people are not able nor willing to see the change in themselves. In the pictures it seems as if we were trying to go back to our childhood by adopting the same position towards each other and the photographer's/spectator's gaze but we unavoidably fail. We have to fail – there is no return in time. "
"You pour a bowl of cereal, or a cup of coffee. Go to the fridge. No milk. Maybe you’re already at the grocery store in the dairy aisle and wonder, “How much milk do I have left at home?” What if you could take a peek into your fridge anytime, anywhere?
To monitor the amount of the remaining milk, we attached a weight sensor to the bottom of a milk jug to send the weight values to your phone. When the milk reaches dangerously low levels, you get an alert on your phone reminding you to get milk while using your current location to map nearby grocery stores."
"I only select objects that have been used and discarded. My goal is for each object to transcend its origin by being integrated into an animal/ organic forms that are alive and in motion. This process of reclamation and regeneration is liberating to me as an artist.
Building these sculptures helps me understand the situations that surround me. It reminds me that even if there is a conflict right now, there is also a solution in which all the pieces can coexist peacefully. Though there are wide gaps in some areas and small holes in others, when seen from the distance there is great beauty and harmony in our community. "

Created by Rolls-Royce and unveiled at the Farnborough International Airshow in the UK, the engine uses 152,455 bricks and reaches an overall size of 4.9 feet long and 6.5 feet wide, weighs 676 pounds. Check out the video of the half-size replica of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000, which powers the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Do you want to know if a friend has signed onto Skype, but don’t want a window popping up every time anyone has logged on? Do you want to be notified when a long download has finished? Do you want to know the snow conditions at Tahoe without checking every hour? Do you want to make a “busy” light for your office that glows red when your calendar says you’re in a meeting?
You can do all four at once: you can simultaneously control as many blink(1)s as you have USB ports. Have a 36-port USB hub? You can fill it with 36 blink(1)s, each of which is showing a different piece of information.
it’s $30 for one, on a fully funded Kickstarter project.
• pH sensors to detect how long the milk has left until it spoils — or if it already has.
• A smart base with a weight sensor that tells how many cups are left.
• A temperature sensor that alerts you when milk has been left out of the fridge for too long.
• A free iPhone app that lets you access this data remotely so you'll know when to pick up more at the store.
It's a cool idea still in development at Quirky.com.
