    "Scott Weaver's amazing piece, made with over 100,000 toothpicks over the course of 35 years, is a depiction of San Francisco, with multiple ball runs that allow you to go on "tours" of different parts of the city."
    "Nazca City" is a land art project, the drawing of a true scale map of an imaginary city onto the surface of the Peruvian desert. To do this we built a robot which moves autonomously, plowing the ground to uncover its underlying color. Because of its scale, the map can only be appreciated as a whole from certain a height by means of airplains or satellite imaging. The project is inspired by the gigantic figures drawn onto the desert by the ancient Nazca culture (200 BC - 600 AD), which can still be seen today.

    It's a Kickstarter project already funded at three times the level required to move into production — with 54 days to go.
    Cool!
    From the Kickstarter website:
    "Curly Cable
    This project is dedicated to all very intense iPad and iPhone users.
    At the end of the day we always run out of batteries — and that's when we need more to use our iDevices.
    But — common recharging cables are VERY SHORT and they make the use of the iPad and iPhone very uncomfortable.
    That's why we propose to you the Curly Cable: an extendible spring cable that allows you to keep using your devices — in a comfortable way.
    The Curly Cable never tangles and extends from 8 inches to 70 inches (20cm to 180cm).
    Curly Cable is long enough to let you relax on a couch and:
    • watch an entire movie (without draining the batteries)
    • play your favorite video game nonstop
    • talk for hours to your friends
    • surf the web all night "
    $15 gets you one once they start churning them out.

    "Brian DeFrees spent two months between August and October of this year driving a giant loop around the United States on a 12,225-mile-long road trip. He captured a photo every 5 seconds using an intervalometer with his Canon 60D while in his car, and by creating individual time-lapse videos when parked or exploring an area. The result is this epic 5-minute long time-lapse."
