If you’re heading out for a night on the town, and can’t find anything glitzy in your closet, would you want to slip into some vinyl? This dress, made by Maison Martin Margiela, is made from old 33 and 45 vinyl records. Vinyl may not be slimming, but since the records were heat-modelled to contour the body, these old records could potentially be rather flattering… And at $8,775 I would hope you’d look damn good in it.
Yeah, I lost. But the good news is that the gun works as advertised—just cock the hammer and squeeze the trigger. Sooner or later, someone will be unlucky enough to fire a shot that actually pops the balloon. On the downside (depending on how you look at it), the balloon pop really isn’t that dramatic or loud. Plus, the product page claims that it can be used with water balloons , but the ring at the end of the barrel really isn’t strong enough to support the weight. However, you could easily load it up with shaving cream if you want to up the ante. Now THAT would be a fun party game.
Lucedentro’s tile mosaic tub is covered with 1.7 x 1.7 cm photoluminescent tiles that absorb light during the day and glow blue at night. However it appears to be only a concept at this point, so if you want a tub that makes you look like a Na’vi when you bathe, you’ll have to keep looking.
Anybody else just flash back to Half Life? Me neither, it was a Dead concert. Anyway, this is a giant f***ing Japanese Spider Crab. It was recently caught off the coast of -- you'll never guess -- Japan, and will be on display in England. I bet my ex-wife has bigger ones.
With its enormous legs and lethal claws, this monster of the deep is already the biggest crab ever seen in Britain.
But astonishingly, the arthropod - which measures a staggering 10ft from claw to claw - is still growing, and could live until it is 100.
Nicknamed 'Crabzilla' after the fictional giant monster, the Japanese Spider Crab has a body the size of a basketball and its legs can straddle a car. They will eventually measure a massive 15ft [across].
