Coin Stacking

Photo credit: Thumb Tani

A guy from Japan, who goes by Tanu online, has mastered the art of coin stacking, and despite how some of his sculptures appear to defy the laws of physics, none have been digitally altered. He starts with a variety of denominations, and then builds a strong base using staggered coins. Next, the coins are carefully placed upright and put edge-to-edge without them falling over.

Batman Arkham Knight Helmet

A video posted by BURT (@project_burt) on

Project Props went above and beyond to create a 3D-printed Batman: Arkham Knight helmet. The design was taken directly from the game's source code, and even then, it required several days of work to transform that file into something workable. For example, the team had to move the eye holes so the wearer could actually see out the mask. Next, they added functional LED lights to complete the futuristic look.

Batman Grappling Hook Gun

The grapple gun, which fired the Batline/Bat-rope (it had to be thrown manually prior to that), was first introduced in Tim Burton's live-action film, Batman. One feature added to the utility belt in the film and its sequel Batman Returns, was a small motor which would move items from the back of the belt around to the front allowing Batman easier access to his weaponry and tools. Now, "The Hacksmith" has created a real-life version, and this grappling hook gun can shoot distances of up to 150-feet, using 3mm kevlar rope rated for 2000-pounds. Next up on the list of upgrades is an 8-horsepower electric superwinch that will enable humans to ascend buildings faster than anything commercially available.

Black Hole Lamp
Black Hole Lamp

Here is the lamp in action - "The life of a dying star"

Posted by Curve ID on Tuesday, November 8, 2016

The "Black Hole Lamp" by Curve ID may not be the most practical, but it's a conversation piece nonetheless. When turned on, the light is spread across a fabric disk, but as you pull the handle backwards, a tunnel is created, swallowing it like a black hole devours stars. "The fully illuminated disc represents a living star...as the disc is stretched backwards, the light dims just like the process of a dying star until it no longer emits light and is devoured by a black hole. We wanted to achieve an aesthetically pleasing piece that was also functional and interactive, where the user plays a key role in the experience of the product - we want the user to be part of the design and make them feel like they have the power to transform light," said the team.
