1968 Soviet Cosmonaut Survival Kit
Gear  |  Pic
NASA spent nearly 20 years developing a form of space ice cream that astronauts found palatable. Meanwhile, the Soviet space program was working on stuff like this, the NAZ-3 survival kit. It was designed in 1968 for the Soviet Soyuz spacecraft, the reliable workhorse of space flight which is still in use today. The kit (above) contained the following from top left to bottom right:
- Makarov pistol and ammunition
- wrist compass
- 18 waterproof matches with striker
- machete; fishing kit
- strobe light with spare battery
- 8 fire starters
- folding knife
- antenna
- 3-pair wool gloves
- signal mirror
- NAZ-7M type medical kit
- penlight
- R-855-YM or R-855-A1 radio
- two "Priboy 2S" ПРИБОЙ-2С radio batteries
- three wool balaclava hoods
The pistol was intended to scare off "wolves, bears, tigers, etc." on the event of a crash landing.

A Map of the 124 United States of America That Could Have Been

A Map of the 124 United States of America That Could Have
Gear  |  Pic
Andrew Shears has created a map that shows 124 states that could have existed in America, big pic! What would the U.S. look like if all of the secession movements in U.S. history had succeeded?  Well, Mansfield University geography professor Andrew Shears built a map to answer that question. (It covers secession movements through the end of 2011.)
"Most of my life, I've daydreamed about history — not so much the incredible depth of historical events that have already occurred, good thinking as that might be. No, I've constantly fictionalized history by changing the outcome of one event here and there and exploring the possibilities of what would have come next. Sometimes I come up with some utterly ridiculous progressions on these alternate timelines of whole new worlds based on relatively minor changes."

"Dogs in Cars" by by LA-based photographer Lara Jo Regan, a series of photos that feature all kinds of canines enthusiastically leaning into the wind with tongues lapping and a cool breeze in their fur. Regan explains this idea,
"I usually try to come up with ideas that are somewhat odd and complex to insure no one else is doing the same thing. But as an owner of three dogs living in the Los Angeles car culture, the idea was just staring me in the face. Most dogs become downright delirious over a car ride, and I wanted to capture this amazing primal energy in photographs beyond what I’d seen before"

Work Worn Hand by Eliza Bennett

Work Worn Hand by Eliza Bennett
Gear  |  Projects
Using her own skin as a canvas, British artist Eliza Bennett  has stitched into the palm of her hand using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. Considering the flesh as a base material, Bennett carefully stitches patterns and lines into the epidermis of her body using colored thread; ‘a woman’s work is never done’ results as an incredibly worn-looking hand, overworked and fatigued.
"Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy."

A Wall of 300 Chairs and Clothes by Fumiko Kobayashi

A Wall of 300 Chairs and Clothes by Fumiko
Gear  |  Projects
Artist Fumiko Kobayashi used about 300 chairs to create "1000 Legs, Cultivating Fruits," a huge wall built entirely out of chairs and some old clothing. One side of the wall is composed of used clothes, creating a relatively flat surface while the opposite side is all chairs – almost 300 chairs. The wall, currently on display at the Mori Art Museum through January 13 as part of a show called Roppongi Crossing, evokes Japan's post-tsunami devastation.
"The clothes and chairs for the piece were all collected from the neighborhoods surrounding the museum and the artist’s home. When stacked together, it transforms into a force to be reckoned with."
