THE BEST Etc

Concept: Dog Bookstands

Concept: Dog Bookstands

These Dog Bookstands by Charles Kalpakian put the funk in shelving; we’re honestly not sure what to make of them, other than that we’d snap up a few of these puppies if they’re ever made.

Rolling Sports Bar

Rolling Sports Bar

Killing two (or maybe three) birds with one stone, Tampa Bucs fan Michael Seville has created a 17″ BBQ grille/trailer with a built-in flat-panel, Polk Audio speakers and Alpine amps.

Star Wars/Trek Origami

Star Wars/Trek Origami

We never could fold one of those damned origami swans, so Won Park’s Star Wars and Star Trek Origami handily puts our skills to shame; they’re made with one dollar bills.

Video: LEGO Minigun

While some LEGO replicas just look cool, this double-barreled Minigun promises to annihilate the competition at the next cubicle battle with a firing rate of 58 rubber bands per second.

Joshua Middleton has a comic artist’s dream portfolio: known for his line work, he’s worked with both DC and Marvel; Superman, Batman and the X-Men are just a few of his “clients.”

Japanese Art Trucks

Japanese Art Trucks

Snapped by Roger Snider, Japanese Art Trucks are wildly customized (and often inhabited) by their owners; if an 18 wheeler and Tokyo’s Ginza ever mated, these rigs would be their progeny.

Serac S3 LED Flashlight

Serac S3 LED Flashlight

Although it won’t set things on fire like The Torch, Leatherman’s Serac S3 LED flashlight pumps out 100 lumens from its tiny 3.2 inch body; it has three brightness settings and a handy belt clip.

Halloween Lego Figs

Halloween Lego Figs

Not content with Lego’s stock minifigs, Morgan19 has crafted an army of customized characters; from pumpkin-headed Harvester to four-handed Shira, they’re perfect for a Halloween diorama.

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

We’re man enough to confess our man crushes, but this Guitar Hero: World Tour ad is almost too much; it’s got Tony Hawk, Michael Phelps, A-Rod and Kobe doing Risky Business in their skivvies.

Interactive Mirror

Interactive Mirror

Alpay Kasal, a god amongst men: his interactive mirror is a study in human computer interaction, but frankly we just want to draw funny mustaches and play space invaders on it.

Baconnaise

Baconnaise

Baconnaise’s concept just seems so wrong that we can’t help but love it: it’s mayonnaise that is flavored to taste like bacon; the spread comes from the makers of Bacon Salt.

Video: Balancing Point

Video: Balancing Point

Running video backwards is always fun, but this cool short film by Danny Brown gives the illusion that he’s able to control rocks with his mind; the trippy soundtrack definitely helps.

Video: Modded Wall-E

Video: Modded Wall-E

We’re robo-crushin’ on DJ Sures’ modded Wall-E: he takes Disney’s cheap $40 single-motor version and gives it multiple servos and a freakin’ personality, all with only 7 hours of work.

Video: Bloodhound SSC

The Bloodhound SSC rocket car plans to break the land speed record in 2011. It’ll hit Mach 1.4 with 47k lb of thrust, using both a jet and hybrid rocket engine to top out at 1,050 mph.

Starbucks TIE Fighter

Starbucks TIE Fighter

Likely amped up with a s***load of caffeine, photog Dan Winters crafted this uber detailed TIE Fighter using 216 drink stirrers, 63 cup sleeves and 50 cups; talk about Venti-sized.

Mad Scientist ABCs

Mad Scientist ABCs

Still wishing those Star Wars ABC posters were available? These engraved Mad Scientist blocks include “F is for Freeze Ray,” “H is for Henchmen,” and “U is for Underground Lair.”

Rejected Transformers

Rejected Transformers

With a title like “Rejected Transformers,” Worth1000’s latest contest is all that and a bag of Bumblebees; it’s so popular that it’ll run for a week instead of two days. See the entries here.

City Museum

City Museum

We wish St. Louis’ City Museum existed when we were kids; it has everything from multi-story slides and dinosaur caves to a rooftop sky tunnels made out of airplanes. Thanks, Doug!

The Great Office War

The Great Office War

Think West Side Story meets NERF, and you’ll get The Great Office War, quite possibly the most epic cubicle battle in human history. Best. Team Building Activity. Ever.

Art: Cristiano Siquiera

Art: Cristiano Siquiera

From sharp vector artwork to imaginative photoshop collabs, Cristiano Siqueira has a highly polished style like an amped-up Aeon Flux. See his work on his homepage or on Behance.

Fantasy Pumpkins

Fantasy Pumpkins

If Death Star pumpkins don’t get you in the Halloween spirit, nothing will: check out these geeky pumpkin carvings, which include Diablo II, Optimus Prime and Mars Attacks.

Live Pinball w/Drums

Live Pinball w/Drums

The art of Tokyo trio Itoken, Jimanica and Yamaguchi is as fun to create as it is to watch; the artists bang drums which interact with animations on screen, including the pinball game above.

Video: Inner Forests

Video: Inner Forests

Created by Michael Kontopoulos, Inner Forests uses your shadow to procedurally “sprout” trees and shrubs from your head and arms; the longer you stay still, the more they grow.

LEGO Ferrari F1

LEGO Ferrari F1

It’s one thing to build a LEGO replica, but to make a 1:8 scale Ferrari go-kart is just flat-out awesome. Used to promote LEGO World in The Netherlands, it’s made out of 80,000 bricks.
