1937 Talbot-Lago Figoni-Falaschi Coupe

On 25, Jan 2010 | In Uncategorized | By admin

Even if you’re not into cars, it’s easy to appreciate the fluid and futuristic lines of this French beauty. In its day, this car was often scorned as “outrageous” and downright “indecent”. Today, those same words are uttered by accountants upon hearing that Talbot-Lagos can demand upwards of $5 million at auction.

On 31, Dec 2009 | In Uncategorized | By admin

For the holidays, we present an ingenious invention to help prevent your holiday toast from getting toasty. The double-wall champagne flute acts as a glass thermos, creating an elegant barrier between the warmth of your hand and the cold bubbly. Chic physics. (Say that five times fast after a glass!)

On 15, Dec 2009 | In Uncategorized | By admin

Unbuilt Russia

In 1934, the “Palace of Soviets” was planned to be taller than the tallest building in the world. But as soon as the U.S. found out, they hired a giant ape to stand atop the Empire State Building and swat at airplanes, thus shaming the Soviets into building a somewhat more modest IHOP instead.

This creative lamp design utilizes a heavy weight that falls over a four hour period, powering an LED light with the luminance of a 40-watt lightbulb. A cool idea born from the principle of a cuckoo clock. Pretty bright…
