Rabbit iPhone Case

No, this isn't an optical illusion, or a stuffed animal, but rather a real rabbit being used as an iPhone case. This image went viral online a few weeks ago, and since then, other iPhone owners have begun using their own pets in the same way. While most of the images you're about to see feature iPhones, this works with just about any brand, given that it's not a tablet or laptop. Continue reading for more.

Knockoff DVD

You could either re-use an old Star Wars movie poster for your knockoff, or decide to add in Arnold Schwarzenegger, like this Chinese bootlegger.

China's Paris

Anyone who hasn't been to "The City of Light" in France would probably mistake the image above for the real deal, but upon closer inspection, all of the buildings and roads look off. That's because it's just a replica of Paris, France in China, called Tianducheng. It was originally planned as a city for around 10,000 inhabitants, but the current population is estimated at a mere 2,000 people, many of whom are "working on" a nearby French-themed amusement park.

Prison Restaurant

The Prison of Fire eatery has just opened in China and it aims to bring the true convict experience to the masses. Every party is seated inside their own Chinese prison-style cell, complete with food being served through a small hatch.

China is home to 700-million-plus smartphone users, which means the country needs to start experimenting with new ways to prevent mobile-related accidents. So, on a 165-foot pavement stretch in the city of Chongqing, pedestrians can now choose between a normal lane and one exclusively reserved for mobile devices users. This idea was based on an experiment conducted by National Geographic Television earlier this year in Washington, D.C. that rose awareness for the lack of attention many smartphone users pay to traffic and other pedestrians.

Fake Lamborghini Diablo VT

Auto enthusiasts Wang Yu and Li Lintao from Beijing, China, have adored supercars since childhood, but as some already know, imported vehicles are heavily taxed in the country. So, they decided to build their own Lamborghini Diablo SV from scratch. It all started when the two friends returned home from studying mechanical engineering abroad in the UK and Germany. They began sourcing parts from China's version of eBay, Taobao Marketplace. One year and $227,000 USD later, the replica finally became a reality. It's powered by a Toyota-sourced V8 engine and can go from 0 to 60mph in 4.8 seconds, topping out at 192mph. Continue reading to see the entire build process from start to finish.
