Why Settle For 30 Games When This Tiny Aluminium NES Clone Plays All Of Them

Despite a $US500 ($655)+ price tag, the Analogue Nt, a gorgeous NES clone made from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminium, has been continuously selling out since it was first released back in 2014. If you keep missing out, you can always grab one off eBay for $5000, or wait until January when a smaller, cheaper, improved version will go on sale.


Watch A Guy Transform An Old Glass Bottle Into A Sharp Arrowhead

Video: Junkyard flint knapping is my new favourite thing because it takes a piece of trash and recycles it into something else entirely with just a few taps (OK, more than a few taps). But watch Shawn Woods find an old bottle and then reshape it with tools that consist of an antler, a screw, and like a needle thing.


The Perth Mint Has 5000 Gold-Pressed Latinum Strips For Sale

Someone over at the Perth Mint really likes Star Trek. Commemorative coins featuring captains from the various shows is one thing, but an actual strip of gold-pressed latinum? Now that’s hardcore.


Walking Inside This Crystal Universe Is Like Wandering The Universe

I want to step inside the Crystal Universe installation by TeamLab and just never leave. It’s an immersive art exhibit that’s been around various museums and galleries already and it’s currently in Tokyo (which means I probably won’t get a chance to step in just yet but it’s OK, after watching this video, it’s all I can see when I close my eyes).

For top runners, like the elite specimens competing in the Olympics, every last thing you wear needs to be engineered for comfort and speed. So Nike and Zeiss took inspiration from human anatomy for a new pair of sunglasses that wrap around an athlete’s head.


Optical Illusions Magically Appear When You Fill These Soy Sauce Dishes

Tokyo-based designer Duncan Shotton takes advantage of soy sauce’s varying opaqueness to create a pair of unique sushi dishes that reveal three-dimensional optical illusions once they’re filled.


Sitting On This Glowing Buddha Chair Is Probably The Most Relaxing Thing

Where’s the most relaxing place to take a load off? A comfy bed? A giant plush couch? A hammock swinging in the breeze? None of the above. If you’re really looking to wind down, what could be more relaxing than plopping down in Buddha’s lap?


A Designer Imagined How Awful Instagram Would Have Been On Windows 95

Instagram, one of the internet’s most popular ways to brag about what food was just placed in front of you, might not have become as popular as it is today if were it introduced back when Windows 95 was the operating system of choice. As designer Misha Petrick reveals, it would have been a hot mess 20 years ago.


The Olympic Torch Is Borderline Indestructible 

The Olympic torch’s one job is to stay lit no matter what. And honestly, I never gave much thought to how that was accomplished. Lots of tiki torch fluid? Very careful runners? Ghosts? Correct answer: pressurised gas and a chassis that could probably survive reentry into Earth’s atmosphere.
