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."

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.
