Self-taught artist Melissa Ng unveils her latest project, "Sovereign Armor," which took over 518-hours to complete, and that's without the 3D-printing process. Weighing in at 8-pounds and equipped with glowing LEDs, the intricate patterns you see "are meant to look like rolling waves while the fluting is meant to look like ripples," said the artist. The glow was designed to "give the impression of magical and ethereal energy and symbolize the light of the creative," adds Ng. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

Edible Water Spheres

Skipping Rocks Lab wants to rid the world of plastic bottles, and their biodegradable edible water spheres are a start. Simply put, the edible exterior is created by dropping a block of ice into a mixture of brown algea extract and calcium chloride. What results is a seaweed-based membrane that keeps it shape, locking in the water inside. Continue reading for another video, more pictures and information.

Oddly Ironic

You would think a "Mall Maintenance Shop" with the slogan "we can fix anything," would have a working doorbell, but apparently, that's not the case. Thankfully, there's a window on the door just in case knocking doesn't get any attention either. That is just one of the many oddly ironic things that people on the internet have come across. Other examples include: a Domino's delivery scooter spill, "American Freedom" that is made in China, and lots more. Continue reading to see them all. Click here for a few bonus images.

Neurotransmitter 3000

Netherlands-based industrial designer Daniel de Bruin takes thrill rides to the next level with "Neurotransmitter 3000". It's controlled with biometric data with sensors placed directly on the person, which includes heart rate, body temperature, orientation, gravity and muscle tension. "Heart rate determines the speed of the large rotation and the muscle tension sensor can interfere with that speed by slowing it down. Also, the rider is provided with a hand brake system on the right arm to stop the small rotation from spinning. This creates an active feedback," said the designer.

USB Cable Fail

Thanks to this gadget, opening plastic clamshell packaging has never been easier. Unfortunately, not everyone has one of these tools handy, so the next best thing would be just a normal pair of scissors. Many would simply cut along the edges of the package, while some may have a temporary brain lapse and end up slicing the product itself into two, like this person with a USB cable. Other examples of people who have no idea include: locking your padlock keys onto itself, collecting bizarre "seashells", and more. Continue reading to see them all.

Lunar Table Moon

Designed by Cape-Town artist Jesse Ede, the "Lunar Table" is designed to either look like a cross-section of the moon, or a scene from the lunar surface, depending on the viewing angle. It's made entirely from molten aluminum and a large slate shard pulled from a quarry. First, they used a diamond saw to cut the base down before fitting it with a wooden collar. Next, the team melted the aluminum, and poured it directly onto the wooden surface surrounding the rock. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
