    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

    To market the soon-to-be-released coming of age superpowers story Chronicle, Fox hired viral marketing agency Thinkmodo to deliver a campaign. Three human shaped RC planes were flown around New York City, Lots of fun.
    "Since the three main characters of the movie have the ability to fly, we came up with the idea of staging a few "flying people" sightings around NYC. We achieved that illusion by having 3 custom-made aircraft (which were shaped like human beings) fly above designated areas in NYC and NJ."

    Basic House designed by Barcelona based designer Martin Azua. It's basically an lightweight balloon that can be carried in your pocket and used for shelter.
    "The Basic House is a temporary housing solution so portable it can be folded up to fit in your pocket. Created from a metalized polyester material, when unfolded it self inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun to provide an instant shelter. Once inside the shelter, the material reflects your body heat to keep the user warm. If reversed the material will reflect the sun to keep a cool interior."

    Obama the Incredible Hulk by Ron English.
    Wrote Garner on his website: "Still Life is an interactive gallery piece that takes traditional still life painting into the fourth dimension with a motion-sensitive frame on a rotating mount. Years ago I had the idea of a still life painting that wasn't so still, but could never quite wrap my head around how to build it. After various experiments and explorations, I settled on Unity 3D as the ideal tool to make it happen.
    On the hardware side is a custom-framed television connected to a rotating mount. Attached to the back of the television is a spatial sensor. On the software side is a simple C application to communicate with the sensor and feed the data to a Unity 3D scene
    The scene itself consists of a camera tied to the sensor data with all lights and objects parented to it so they rotate in unison."

    Beautiful Landscape Sculptures by British artist Kyle Kirkpatrick.
    "My practice is primarily concerned with the notion of the imagined landscape. I present man-made objects and natural materials simultaneously to form carefully and meticulously composed installation works. I capitalize on intrigue taking objects out of context reinventing their use, pushing the viewer to see beyond what I present before them, a glass could be interpreted as a lake or a metal bracket a cliff."

    These Crocheted Spock Ears by Shove Mink of Croshame. Awesome! She even included a pattern which she estimates will take half hour to produce. She writes:
    "Well, Christmas has come and gone and you’ve already gotten all the fancy stun guns and tricorders and communicators your heart could desire, so why not try out some of that fabulous Star Trek fashion sense with my pattern for crocheted Spock Ears? These little cuties will show off your nerdly Trekkie fanboy/girl status while also keeping your ears toasty warm! It’s a really quick little project that works up in under a half hour."
