lonelygirl15

lonelygirl15 focused on the life of a fictional teenage girl named Bree, whoseYouTube username was the eponymous “lonelygirl15”. However, the show did not initially reveal its fictional nature to its audience. After the fictional status of the show was revealed in September 2006, it gradually evolved into a multi-character series including both character videoblogs and action sequences, with a complex story universe involving “trait positive girls” who are sought by an evil organization called “The Order”. lonelygirl15 first came to international attention ostensibly as a “real” video blogger who had achieved massive popularity on YouTube. The show was eventually proved as a hoax by suspicious viewers who identified the actress playing Bree as 19-year old American-New Zealand actress Jessica Rose.

RainRoom by rAndom International

RainRoom offers an environment of perpetual rainfall that responds to the presence of its visitors. As soon as you approach the installation, a cocoon of dryness is created around you. This leaves you able to wander freely through different areas of the space, surrounded by falling water, and yet to remain completely dry. RainRoom allows the freedom to experience this unique environment; to be untouched by the rain falling all around you.

Fruits for design

Circular forms are a clear choice for storing the rounded forms of fruits – but these creative modern design ideas are anything but obvious. For starters, when someone asks you to pass them this vertical wooden fruit ‘bowl’ just give it a nudge and send it rolling their way – just don’t slip while sliding them the bananas!

This nifty set of wood, metal and black-painted plastic half-bowls – also by the artist Helena Schepens – does not have quite the same moves but is still quite dynamic. From tiny grapes to sizable pears and appleas, each piece of fruit added to or subtracted from the mix changes the angle of the centerpiece.

Man-Made Substances that laugh in the face of physics

Ferrofluids

A ferrofluid is a liquid that reacts to magnetic fields in trippy ways that make you think that science is both magical and potentially evil. They have multiple real world applications, many which are pretty badass
What happens is that when a magnetic field is applied to the fluid, the particles of iron compound inside align to it. Once that happens, the fluid becomes a fluid-solid. That’s right, ferrofluids are first generation T-1000s, only metallic black and thus 10 times as badass.
Aerogel

It’s not the brick in the picture up there, it’s the stuff under the brick. Aerogel, also called “Frozen Smoke,” is very much like Ben Affleck’s appeal: practically non-existent, but still there somehow. It is 99 percent air, with the other percent being silicon dioxide or fudge or whatever, and looks like fucking magic. Its structure makes it a piss-poor conductor and thus makes it an excellent insulator. In other words, aerogel is also fireproof.

Gifts for the Geek Home

Interactive LED Dining Table

Windell Oksay of Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories built a dining room table with 448 LEDs inside. The lights respond to movement on and above the table surface! No, not a motion sensor, but light sensors that detect shadows and respond appropriately by activating LEDs in those areas. This is a one-of-a-kind project, but if you are handy you can make your own with the extensive documentation of the project as your guide. Take a shortcut by buying the LED panel kit

Motherboard Picture Frame

Recycling is not only environmentally-friendly, it can make a statement. The Motherboard Picture Frame states that you know what motherboards are all about -even if you don’t! Buying one is much easier than recycling your own, but the motherboards are recycled from somewhere.

 

Geek Clock

This geeky clock was posted all over as “the clock only geeks can read.” That’s not quite true, as those of us of a certain age learned to read an analog clock by its angles, so no numerals are necessary. However, the formulas used in place of numerals on this clock face will display your geekiness for the world to see.

A Clock that Spells

Here’s a clock that is easy for anyone to read, but the mechanism that displays it is something else. Christiaan Postma designed it to mechanically spell out the time.

I put together more than 150 individual clockworks and made them work together to become one clock.  I show the progress of time by letting the numbers be written in words by the clockworks. Reading clockwise,  the time being is visible through a word and readable by the completeness of the word, 12 words from “one” to “twelve”.

Watch how the clock face changes here. Unfortunately, it’s an artwork that is not available to purchase.

Fractal Art Quilt


Rose Rushbrooke makes gorgeous art quilts with intricate designs, including a collection of fractal patterns she designs and hand quilts. I was particularly taken with this quilt displaying a pattern based on the Mandelbrot set. A quilt like this will impress everyone, but particularly anyone who recognizes how the intricate pattern came about.

Mini Disc Pillows

Your geeky life isn’t restricted to the internet, however. This pillow comes in the form of a floppy disc, which you might find fun to explain to younger visitors.

Elemental Refrigerator Magnets

Teach your kids about the periodic table as you hang their artwork on the refrigerator, or just show off with the Periodic Table Magnet Set. Use as a complete table, or detach individual magnets as you please.

Temperature Sensitive Tiles


Line your bathroom with tiles that react to heat like a mood ring! These temperature sensitive glass tiles go wild in a hot shower or when washing dishes. They even make awesome floor tiles that respond to bare feet.
