Modular Mini Home Cardboard

Dutch company Fiction Factory takes heavy-duty cardboard, and transforms it into the Wikkelhouse. These modular mini homes are basically made from large rolls of recycled corrugated cardboard. It all starts with a giant machine that applies a coating of eco-friendly adhesive to the cardboard before it's wrapped and rotated 24 times around a frame to ensure its strength, durability, and shape. Once all that is completed, everything is waterproofed and then wood paneling is added. Continue reading for a video and more information.

You've probably seen the films, but did you know that Buzz Lightyear's name was inspired by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second person to walk on the Moon? That's right, Aldrin acknowledged the tribute when he pulled a Buzz Lightyear doll out during a speech at NASA, to rapturous cheers. However, he did not receive any endorsement fees for the use of his first name. His creator, John Lasseter, is said he wanted to create an action figure in the line of G.I. Joe for Toy Story and decided upon a spaceman figure, attributing the design to Apollo astronaut's clear helmets, skullcaps, communication devices and white suits.

Ocean Abyss Table

Influenced by the beauty of New Zealand's landscapes, artist Ben Young takes layers of glass, laminates them in a bluish tone, and then layers them onto concrete. Each piece in his "Ocean Abyss" series are hand drawn, hand cut and handcrafted. The most difficult steps are the planning and development phases, where models are constructed, templates drawn, and custom jigs created, before hand-cutting the sheets with a glazier's tool. "I work with 2D shapes and have to figure out how to translate that into a 3D finished piece. Sometimes my starting point changes dramatically as I have to find a way to layer the glass to create certain shapes," said Young. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
