    In Case Vase designed by Sara Ebert.
    "Ensures a perfect blade-like edge on every one of her bottle-like weapons." Wrote the designer: "The perforated ornamentation on the In Case Vase provides a secondary and potentially life-saving purpose." "Were an intruder to attack, the vase can be smashed and turned against the aggressor. The pattern creates optimal shards to aid in your protection."

    Mercedes unveiled invisible car to promote its new fuel cell vehicle, the company decided to make the car invisible. Watch the video, they attach a mat of LEDs to the car, put a video-shooting Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR camera on the other side, and then broadcast the image onto the new "screen".
    The launch took place from central Germany and reached a max altitude of 35000m. A 1600g meteo balloon filled with helium was used alongside a GoPro Hero, Spot GPS and of course Lego Space Shuttle model 3367.

    To make Angry Birds a real sport, Mbed made a USB slingshot to play Angry Birds. The slingshot emulates a USB mouse, so it really is a plug 'n' play. It translates the physical use of the slingshot in to appropriate mouse controls. The way the controller works is reasonably simple: a stretch sensor translates the drawing of the slingshot to a mouse movement and an accelerometer determines the angle. Check out the video of it in action.

    Urban artist Tilt gave this room with dual personality(a split personality) at the Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseille, France. Called "Panic Room":
    "The photos were taken by Big Addict (aka Roudet Benjamin) and convey an overwhelming feeling of duality. Half of the hotel room was painted in white, with a few framed canvases that seem to balance the graffiti side of the room. Painted over the walls, mirror, bed, ceiling and floors, vividly colored bombs, tags and throw-ups stop right in the middle of the room, where the boring, white half begins."
    Looking at the different ways to shoot videos. Instead of making a normal movie, I am trying to get a colour gradient of what the camera is shooting. There is no postproduction involved, the effect is achieved by connecting the lens of the camera to a drilling machine. The video is taking 15 frames per second, whereas the drill is spinning at more than 20 turn per second.

    Australian artist Sean Avery created these animal sculptures that uses old CDs. He chops up the discs and turns them into whimsical animal sculptures. Some of his pieces use circuit boards, chips, and other recycled computer parts. Avery states, "I blend many different man made materials together to make them appear strangely organic, with a distinct sense of movement."

    A glowing cathedral like structure — dubbed the Luminarie De Cagna, was display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. "Soaring above the street at 91 feet high and using 55,000 LEDs to light up the night sky. The canopies and columns are created out of wood and the lights, and despite the jaw dropping light and color, the whole shebang only uses 20 kilowatts per hour of energy." Cool
