A Chimera Apple And Other Amazing Images From This Week

Bloom Blanket

The bloom blanket is a cozy piece of art inspired by origami and 3-D shapes. Costanzo is currently funding her project through a Kickstarter campaign that has already surpassed its goal. With this blanket, you’ll be the coolest kid at sleepover parties.

Unnumbered Sparks

The interactive textile sculpture is a collaboration between artist Janet Echelman and Google Creative Director Aaron Koblin. Visitors open up a website on Chrome using their smartphones or tablets to trace designs on their screens that will then be projected on the luminous body in the sky.

Kolelinia Halfbike

Look mom, no seat! Riders have to remain standing while they grasp a vertical shaft to help keep balanced all the while pedaling.

Cheesy ‘J’ And The Sculpted Alphabet Series

Foreal made typography way more fun than just ridiculing Comic Sans. The German creative studio sculpted a series of 3-D letter forms in all different shapes, textures, and materials. Check out the rest of the alphabet and what each letter was made out of.

Southern Plains Dust Storm

Images captured by NASA showed the massive dust storm that covered parts of Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas.

Escalator For Dummies

Finally, a guide for those jerks who don’t know how to share the escalator. Thank you, Yoni Alter.

The Bless Helmdo

This head of hair, err, helmet made out of braided fluffy lightweight nylon will keep your noggin safe, and people who see you a little freaked out.

IceBridge Arctic 2014

IceBridge researchers collected data on sea ice thickness and snow cover over ice surfaces of varying roughness during their surveys off the Alaskan coast. They were also able to capture a snapshot of the mountains in the Brooks Range in far northern North America.

‘Alternate Perspectives’

Don’t worry, you’re not being sucked into a vortex and transported to another time and space. These are spherical panoramas captured by Randy Scott Slavin who then digitally manipulated the images to give the “suck in” effect.
