This Standing Cardboard Desk Is Portable, Recyclable, And Is Strong Enough To Hold An Adult

A team of designers in New Zealand has created a cardboard table called the “Refold” that they claim is “flexible, foldable, portable, affordable and 100% recyclable.”

The table, designed by Fraser Callaway, Oliver Ward and Matt Innes, can support the weight of an adult, despite weighing only 6.5 kg. It can be folded into a sitting position, a standing position, or a portable portfolio-like form. The standing form is especially important because of relatively recent studies that have exposed just how unhealthy sitting for extended periods of time can be.

Check out their Kickstarter campaign for more information! Proceeds from some of their donation options will help UNICEF New Zealand create better education opportunities for children in the Pacific Islands.

Smartphones Can Make Your Halloween Costumes Creepy As Hell

Mark Rober, a former NASA engineer and an ingenious costume designer, has created a brilliant line of Halloween costumes that perfectly combine classic terrifying costumes with modern smartphone technology. A free app on your phone will bring his costumes to life (or undeath, I guess, in the zombie’s case?).

After going viral a few years ago with a costume that used two iPads to make it look like a hole had been blasted through his stomach, Rober has created a line of terrifying t-shirts and monstrous masks that have special smartphone pockets. His free app (which can also be used with home-made costumes) lets you turn your phone’s screen into an element of your costume, like shifty eyes or disgusting maggots.

Powerful Illustrations Show Women How To Fight Gender Prejudices

Offensive statements about girls and women are more common than you think. Everyday, females around the world hear rude and abusive words towards them, so Brazilian illustrator Carol Rossetti decided to do everything that was in her hands to change that.

The artist created a series of supportive illustrations, called “Women”, that helps motivate women in their struggle against gender prejudices and women discrimination. The on-going project started in May, and Rossetti publishes her work on her blog and Facebook. Although the images were originally created in Portuguese, the popular illustrator got some help in translating them into other languages.

Ashes To Diamonds: Swiss Company Turns People’s Cremated Remains Into Diamonds

Algordanza, a Swiss company, has taken a fascinating and unexpected approach to memorializing our loved ones who have passed; They will compress and super-heat your loved one’s cremated ashes and turn them into a man-made diamond that can be worn and cherished.

It all begins with a chemical process that extracts the carbon from the departed’s ashes. This carbon is then heated to convert it into graphite. That graphite is then heated to as many as 2,700 degrees Fehrenheit and subjected to forces as high as 870,000 pounds per square inch. The color of the finished diamond, which can range from white to dark blue, depends on the boron content of the ashes of the deceased. The prices begin at 4,259 Swiss Francs ($4,474 USD) for a small diamond with no additional service.

Guy Lets His Artist Wife Doodle With Sharpie Pen On His Nissan Skyline GTR 

While tuning up his Nissan Skyline GTR sports car, one auto enthusiast, together with his talented and supremely dedicated artist wife, accidentally stumbled upon an amazing way to give their sleek silver vehicle an unforgettable paintjob.

The car enthusiast, who is a member of the U.S. Military, hated the car’s silver color. One evening, he let his wife doodle on a few scratches on the bumper, and when the sun came up and he saw her stunningly intricate and elegant drawings, they knew they had to forge on. While he worked on tuning the insides, she drew on the car.

After roughly 100 hours of work and several clear coats to protect the design, they had an impressively beautiful car that they had tuned up as a team!
