Smell 'Camera'

Designer Amy Radcliffe has developed an odor-capturing "camera" based on technology developed for the perfume industry. Her device is called Madeleine. "The Madeleine works in much the same way as a 35mm camera," Radcliffe writes. "Just as the camera records the light information of a visual in order to create a replica The Madeleine records the molecular information of a smell."

Here’s how it works: the source of the scent or odor is placed inside the glass dome that’s connected to the main part of the Madeleine. A pump pulls the scent molecules out and captures them in a resin trap. That trap can then be sent to a lab for analysis and to be re-created, like a perfume component.
Amy calls this concept as “scent-ography” and envisions this as an alternative way of recording memories, saying: “From manipulating our emotional well-being through prescribed nostalgia, to the functional use of conditioned scent memory, our olfactory sense could take on a much more conscious role in the way we consume and record the world.”

 

Optical illusion

If you're in East London anytime before August 4, 2013, you can climb these walls without fear of falling. It's an optical illusion created by Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich called Dalston House. The "house" is on the ground, with a giant mirror looming over it at an angle. The work was commissioned by the Barbican in London.  

Star Wars Boba Fett Bathrobe


when you get home, it's time to relax. Remove your jetpack. Doff your helmet. Sink into a tub full of bubbles, listen to some calming music, read your favorite book of poetry, then wrap yourself in this soft and warm bathrobe.

This comfortable robe looks just like Boba Fett's iconic armor, right down to the jetpack. Since a bounty hunter is never without a weapon, there are pockets in the front for your blaster (or a morning snack).Being a bounty hunter is dirty work. You can spend weeks or months away from home, tracking your target, watching his daily movements, planning the best way to capture him and then implementing that plan. With the amount of hours on the job, it's no surprise that showers are a luxury you just can't have every day.

The drinking game

Assume we could get all your favorite members of the houses Stark, Baratheon, Lannister, and Targaryen together at a bar. Y'know, back in the days before people started dying left and right. Who would win in a game of shots? Robert Baratheon with his amazing alcohol tolerance? Dany, since fire(water) cannot harm a dragon? Tyrion (who must have a hollow leg)? Or perhaps one of the Starks...? (Though technically not a Stark, we'd bet on Hodor.)
