Lego has built a 1:1 scale model of the X-Wing fighter using an astounding 5,335,200 bricks! It's as big as the real thing. Gizmodo writes that “it reproduces the official $60 Lego 9493 X-Wing Fighter. But instead of being 560-pieces and a few inches long, this model uses more than five million pieces and it’s 11-feet tall and 43 feet long, with a 44-foot wingspan. Just like the real X-Wing—and 42 times the size of the commercial Lego set.”

|Drinking the days of the year might seem like an obscure concept, but the Tea Calendar by German tea manufacturerHaelssen and Lyon allows one to do just that by transforming each day of the year into a bag of tea.

The Hang Around kitchen utensils were created by Kibisi for Muuto. Each utensil is made from wood and has a small slit by the handle, so you can perch it on the edge of the pan or pot after using it. Good idea.
