Kid Literature Illustrations I Do About The Inventions That I Saw In The Year 2098

According to Aaron Shaw: “When I was a kid, all I wanted to do was live in the future. I just could not get enough of the future between the Jetsons, Epcot, and Back to the Future. I simply adored the inventions I imagined would one day fill our lives. But the future never came fast enough, so I began illustrating what I hoped our bright, silly future would bring. These illustrations are part of my collection of crazy goofy future invention illustrations I do to help kids imagine their own fun and wonderful future!”

How Lunch Bags Get Better in 2051

This Ekuuku is an introvert. The worst for him is lunchtime at his bounceable school. Because he is so yellow and has an extra arm, he is quite popular. But he hates it. So every day, he brings his “I’m Disgusting” Lunch Bag invention. This bag makes everyone around him think that they smell disgusting, and thus they scatter to avoid embarrassment. Hooray, isolation for everyone!

How Swimming Gets Better in 2064

Sure, the Niog alien species were not the first to introduce the Never Wet Swim Dress technology, but they definitely brought style to it! This invention makes it so that the person wearing the swim dress never touches the water. In fact, if you jumped in a lake right now, the waters would part for you all the way to the bottom and you would walk out on the dry ground. (Also great for rainy days with no umbrella!)

How Snowballs Get Better in 2058

When a Qweply enters a room, everyone knows it. It is precisely because of this aroma that they receive many Guided Flavor Ball inventions their way. Whisper the flavor you want into the ball and the name of the person you want to hit in the face with it, and within 37 seconds, they will receive a vigorous blow to the noggin. Works anywhere in the galaxy!

How Pot Holes Get Better in 2067

This little guy is what most people call a “pot bot,” but I am sure you can guess why he does not love that nickname :) He and 52,000 of his identical siblings were released onto the road system 37 years ago to fill the potholes. They spend their days dreaming about oil baths while they zip in and out of traffic at 151 miles per hour. They are equipped with special wheels that drop asphalt to fill the gaps within seconds of landing in one. In general, they are a happy bunch and love to be working. Their motto is “potholes are not as good as dinner rolls.” (They were not created with the ability to come up with a good motto.)

How Shirts Are Better in 2079

Frodo here weighs 117 lbs. He and his family bond by watching Lord Of The Rings movie marathons 6 times a year. But Frodo has a dream to be a linebacker. So, in 2079, he invented the Make Me Like Shirt. Put it on and press the button. Your body turns into the same size and shape as the athlete whose Jersey you are wearing. No more hard work to be a big huge muscle head athlete!

How Wrinkles Get Better in 2094

Anna spends most of her time under the ground. As with most giant mole rats of Russia, she has only ever had one man in her life. It is a good less-than-glamorous life, which is why it is a bit surprising that she decided to invent the wrinkle rug. One step on this wrinkle rug and all of your wrinkles begin to transfer the right to the rug! It takes about 3 minutes to remove every wrinkle you have. Works on clothes too!

How Meetings Get Better in 2085

You would think that the lovely ladies of planet Forton just loved meetings how they attend them with such glee. But they don’t. Like humans, they find meetings exhausting and long-winded. So, they invented the shortener. This handy little device shortens every event down to its essentials. Turn a math class into a 15-minute crash course, turn a football game into 14 minutes of actual gameplay, turn those “necessary” meetings into 10 seconds of information that actually pertains to you!

How Poop Will Be Better in 2072

Aplidons love birthdays even more than humans. This is for two reasons: 1) They get a new square that fills in another gap in their body. This square then gives them a new ability like playing the clarinet, hitting a double, or holding scorpions without being stung. 2) They get their new poopsicle. These poopsicles, when eaten, change your poop to the same smell like the flavor of poopsicle! Last year as a joke, everyone got vomit-flavored poopsicles at Frankie’s party. For the next year, bathroom breaks were not so pleasant.

How Hand Washing Gets Better in 2066

The Vilpon race is kind of crazy about germs. It turns out that global pandemics really freak them out. They stop licking toilet seats as soon as they hear about the latest outbreak. Well, because of their need for cleanliness, they also invented the washer detector. Just hang it on the wall by the restroom. Now, whoever comes out of the bathroom without washing their hands will have neon blue glowing fingernails for the next 7 hours. Let the public shaming begin!

How Gloves Get Better in 2077

Highly considered one of the ugliest species to visit the Earth, the Slurtgoes quickly had to invent something to keep the haters at bay. So they came up with the knockout glove. Walk up to someone making fun of your ugly baby, and pop them on the nose. Down they go, knocked out. The glove leads your hand to the perfect knockout blow every time!

Amazing Photos of the Third Generation of the Ford Thunderbird, 1961-1963

The third generation of the Ford Thunderbird is a personal luxury car produced by Ford for the 1961 to 1963 model years. It featured new and much sleeker styling (done by Bill Boyer) than the second generation models. Sales were strong, if not quite up to record-breaking 1960, at 73,051 including 10,516 convertibles.

h/t: vintag.es

A new, larger 390 cu in (6.4 L) FE-series V8 was the only engine available (in 1961). The Thunderbird was 1961’s Indianapolis 500 pace car, and featured prominently in US President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural parade, probably aided by the appointment of Ford executive Robert McNamara as Secretary of Defense. It shared some styling cues with the much smaller European Ford Corsair.

It was replaced by the 4th generation Thunderbird for model year 1964. Here is a set of amazing photos of the third generation of the Ford Thunderbird (1961-1963).

The Art of Japanese Portrait Photography by Kishin Shinoyama

Japanese photographer Kishin Shinoyama has dedicated his practice to exploring intimacy and the human body, as well as documenting his home place of Tokyo. His sensual photographs often depict the body within the architecture of the city or conversely, the inherent sculptural qualities of the naked human form. Shinoyama was born in 1940, in Tokyo, Japan. He studied in the Department of Photography at Nippon University and was awarded the Advertising Photographer’s Association prize. After being employed at the Light Publicity advertising company, he started to work as an independent photographer in 1968.

Kishin Shinoyama’s work has long captured the changing urban landscape of Tokyo; its politics, culture, and society. His ‘shino-rama’ images of the 1980s capture the extensive commercial developments and excessive consumer lifestyles of the era by utilizing multiple cameras to produce vast panoramas.

Shinoyama’s early nudes from the sixties and seventies, often shot in black and white, framed bodies as expressive objects in the natural environment; living sculptures of flesh and bone. More recently, the pictures he terms ‘Gekisha’ stage young and amateur female models, usually naked, amongst the neon lights and concrete structures of the city. A recent nude photo shoot in a cemetery sparked controversy which the artist has not shied away from. Shinoyama documented the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that struck the east coast of Japan in March, 2011, adding another layer of texture to his vision of Japan.

In addition to the diverse landscapes of his country, Shinoyama is also acclaimed for his portraits of celebrities such as John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Rie Miyazawa, and other famous personalities. In 1980 Yoko Ono asked Shinoyama to shoot the artwork for her and John Lennon’s collaborative album Double Fantasy.

bravefoolish6_640

 とはいうものの、あまりにも無謀なシチュエーションでは単なる自殺行為になっちゃうケースもあるわけなので、相手を見極める眼を持つことも大切なんじゃないかと思うんだ。

人間はなぜ尻尾を失ったのか?遺伝子の突然変異だった可能性

monkey-4427819_640


 動物界では、尾というものは標準装備で、その存在にはもっともな理由がある。魚にとっては推進力になり、ウシにとってはハエたたき代わりになり、ワニは尾に脂肪を蓄えている。サルは尻尾でバランスをとり、物をつかんだりさえする。

 人間も、実は胎児の頃には尻尾があり、この世に生まれ落ちる頃にはそれが衰退して椎骨と融合し消えてしまう。尾てい骨として知られている尾骨が尾の名残だ。

 ではなぜ人間は尻尾を持たなくなったのだろうか?その理由がわかるかもしれない遺伝子が特定された。どうやら突然変異による可能性があるという。 続きを読む

“Annihilation of Humanity”: The Superb Metal Bands Logo Design by Irina Voland

Do you like heavy metal as much as I do? If your answer is yes, then you’ll be impressed with these beautiful logos created by Irina Voland. Exellent lettering!

According to an artist: “My friends used to call me ‘Mods’. Prefix ‘Mod-‘ stuck to me because I like to modify, customize everything. The other bit is because the Moon is the black soul of night, i enjoy silence and stillness of the night. The Moon is near the Earth, but still far away – I can relate to that.”

More: Irina Voland, Instagram, Facebook

“I’ve always been looking for something special – dark, mystic, melancholic, even before I’ve got into art and subcultures. So i’ve decided to do my own thing, that connects my passion for music with drawing as my job.

I’m into graphic arts since 2004, after i quit working with PC hardware in my youth. Earlier years I used to work with german, swedish, british and american studios to get expericence and reliable name, very few of them were about dark design, most jobs were fashion and entertainment related. Though i don’t regret doing it because it gave me the experience i needed. Nowdays i prefer to have more freedom rather than being tied up with contracts. I manually draw lettering art like name tattoos, band or artist logos, personal emblems and monograms.

I want to make artworks more interesting, not like soulless “neutral style” corporate designs. I prefer more artistic, atmospheric designs. I like giving soul to my lettering art, making it speak, tell a story maybe.”

“Music is my passion, basically avantgarde and progressive Black Metal, Doom, Dark Ambient, Prog/Alternative Rock. The older i become the more genres i embrace, i catch myself listening to lots of Blues Rock and Darkjazz lately. My favourite bands are Anathema, Agrypnie, Paradise Lost, VAST, Nocte Obducta, Khold, Diary of Dreams, Behemoth, Nyktalgia, Satyricon, Desiderii Marginis, Hypnogaja, Black Lab, Anorexia Nervosa, Nortt, Antimatter, Godsmack, Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch. Music and Art is my lifestyle, the blood in my veins, the air i breathe.”

クモ恐怖症を克服したい?蜘蛛に慣れるための拡張現実アプリが開発される

蜘蛛恐怖症克服用の拡張現実アプリが開発される
 様々な恐怖症があるが、クモ恐怖症(アラクノフォビア)は世界的に見ても上位で、蜘蛛に異常な恐怖感を抱く人は多い。

 苦手というレベルならまだ日常生活を営めるが、クモ恐怖症を持つ人は、蜘蛛がいそうな場所、蜘蛛の巣を見ただけで落ち着かなくなる。本体を見るとそのパニックになり、周囲に近づけなくなる。

 多くの蜘蛛はダニやノミなどの害虫を食べてくれるいわば益虫だ。せめて家の中にいる小さなクモくらい冷静に対処できる程には慣れておいた方がいいだろう。

 そこで開発されたのが『Phobys』という拡張現実アプリだ。まずはヴァーチャルの蜘蛛に慣れることで、恐怖をやわらげようというのだ。 続きを読む
