Design

If you’re a fan of paper sculpture you’ll definitely want to check out the portfolio of Jeff Nishinaka. The Los Angeles native has been working in the medium for almost 30 years and and the level of detail and complexity of some of his work is amazing.

Take a look.

Meet Recycled Optimus Prime, made from 100% recycle materials. The 37 foot replica, built in Bejing, is made from parts of scrapped mini vans and motorcycles. Bask in the awesome and feel free to giggle like a schoolgirl (lintly did).

Okay, I wouldn’t stick this in my back pocket, but I have to admit I kinda like the idea of an Pac-Man Atari cartridge turned into a wallet.

You remember the Nebulon-B Class Medical Frigate from the end of The Empire Strikes Back? Of course you do, who doesn’t. Well this enterprising individual created his own version out of LEGOs. And it even includes a small Millennium Falcon.

anaraHaving some relatives who spent the last few years working there I’ve heard plenty of stories about Dubai. Due to its immense wealth, temperate weather, and the low cost of construction, buildings which might take years in the States go up seemingly overnight.

And, oh, the buildings (they seriously considered building a hotel which would float on top of large helium-filled balloons). The guys at Abduzeedo have a nice little look at some of the architecture of the city.

Take a look.

slauerhoffbrugMeet “Slauerhoffbrug.” This bridge (which can be found in the city of Leeuwarden of the Netherlands) is lifted off the road by a giant robotic arm.

Yes, it’s real.

Go ahead, take a moment.

[I know, right?]

Done?

Okay, we will gladly admit it’s pretty freakin’ sweet… at least until the day Skynet takes over and goes all smashy smashy on oncoming traffic.

Check out more pics, including overhead shots of the bridge in motion, here.
