  • Moo-torcycle Made From Cow Bones [6 Photos]

    Florida-based sculptor Reese Moore has been creating motorcycles out of animal bones since the 90s. It began as a joke when he made a comment to a Daytona bar owner that he could build such a motorcycle. The bar owner said there was no way it could be done, so Moore set out to prove him wrong. Each motorcycle takes a year to build, using 3 to 4 cow skulls, 2 to 3 alligator skulls, and goat, wolf, raccoon, turtle, and pig bones. He has build 9 so far and no two are the same. The latest motorcycle can be found at Dunn’s Attic and Auction House in Ormond Beach, Florida.

  • There’s an Insane MMA/American Gladiators/WWE Style Show Coming to America

    Ok so go figure, in Russia there’s a show called “Hip Show” where a tandem team of MMA fighters go head to head with another team essentially without any rules, meaning two fighters can team up on one and possibly getting two separate submissions on one person at the same time, not only allowed, but encouraged after a teammate is eliminated. Not enough crazy for you? They also fight on a multi leveled platform, where flying leg kicks and elbows are most definitely allowed. AXS TV boss Mark Cuban seems to beieleve in the show, just picking it up, Hip Show: Arena Combat debuts on his network Friday at 10 p.m. ET. Teams start with two competitors each, competing in three two-minute rounds. Points are scored by executing wrestling throws, striking sequences and clean ground-and-pound or by holding one of the obstacles in an extended game of “king of the mountain” for 10 seconds. )

  • The Origami Microscope That Will Change The World

    A research team at Stanford University’s PrakashLab has developed Foldscope, a microscope that is printed and folded from a single sheet of flat paper. It costs less than a dollar in parts yet can magnify over 2000x with sub-micron resolution. It weighs less than two nickels, can fit in your pocket, require no outside power, and can survive a fall from 3 stories. Different designs of Foldscope will be disease-specific, to aid workers in areas where general-purpose instruments are not a viable solution. In third world countries where common diseases can take weeks to be diagnosed, the Foldscope will revolutionize the medical field and save countless lives. The team is currently looking for 10,000 beta-testers for the Foldscope from all different walks of life, whether you’re a scientist, a tinkerer, or just someone who’s curious. For more info and to sign up, check out Foldscope.

  • 11 Extremely Rare International Star Wars Posters

    The trilogy that captured the hearts and imaginations of millions around the globe had a very different global perception initially. Lucas’s interstellar story of light and dark told through a three (six) part saga involving love, death and triumph was and is still looked at as one of the most revolutionary pieces of filmmaking to ever hit the silver screen. Before it’s premiere, local artists around the world were hired to create movie posters for their international territories in their native language. They were given a limited set of illustrations to use as a guide, but little creative direction leaving them with a wide range of inspiration to choose, which is why these posters are now very rare and iconic.

  • Putin’s Cold War Kickstarter

    Vladimir Putin has officially been declared a world villain, which could make it difficult to come up with funds necessary to take over the world or at least start a war. Which is why he made his own Kickstarter to fund the “New Cold War” and why not. Kickstarter’s fundraising capabilities are used by celebrities seeking means to capitalize on their status or raise funds which they probably have in their checking account, but are too greedy to use. Donate to the Putin fund for a signed photo from your favorite warlord on a horse, shirtless. )

  • Amazing Guest House Made From Airplanes [10 Photos]

    Toshikazu Tsukii, a 76-year-old Raytheon engineer, has built a guest house on his property made from aircraft parts. The 2 story, 2 bed room house was constructed from the nosecone of a 737, the fuselage of two 707s and the tail end of a 727. A Boeing 747 fuselage covers the pool. Tsukii came up with the idea when he came across the 737 nosecone in a scrap yard. Tsukii lives at La Cholla Airpark in Arizona, a community of 91 homes built around a community airstrip. His 7 acre lot gave him plenty of room to work with. All this and he still works full time for Raytheon. Jeez, I have trouble finding the ambition to get dressed most mornings.
