Liquid Glass Putty can stretch like rubber and bounce like a ball, and since it's silicone-based, the material won't dry out or crumble over time. Think of this as part toy, part stress reliever, part physical therapy and entirely addictive, or so the manufacturer thinks. However, pouring 500-pounds of this stuff into a bathtub and trying to climb out after the putty settles, is another story. Get some here now.

You're not looking at an otherworldly spacecraft, just the United Nude Lo Res Concept. This bizarre vehicle was created using a method that lowers the 3D resolution of an object several times, making it an abstract work of art. They started with a Lamborghini Countach, and ended up with a stealth fighter-inspired car. Featuring a poly carbonate body that doubles as a door, which is operated by an electric lift, and opens up to reveal a sleek minimalist interior. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

Sure, it can get cold at times, but we still do not recommend using a privacy scarf that shields not only your face and neck, but an entire laptop as well. This doesn't mean it can't be useful, but restraining yourself from using the privacy scarf in public, could make life easier. Other bizarre and useless items include a game controller that doubles as a massage vest, a pet goldfish carrier, as well as a USB-powered bottle warmer. Continue reading to see them all.
The McCollough Effect is basically an illusion of human visual perception in which colorless gratings appear colored contingent on the orientation of the gratings. It's an aftereffect requiring a period of induction to produce it. For example, if someone alternately looks at a red horizontal grating and a green vertical grating for a few minutes, a black-and-white horizontal grating will then look greenish and a black-and-white vertical grating will then look pinkish. The effect is remarkable for often lasting an hour or more, and in some cases after prolonged exposure to the grids, the effect can last up to three and a half months.

Software support team manager Nick O'Donoghue snapped a perplexing image at 30,000-feet, which shows a figure that resembles the robot from the animated movie The Iron Giant. "I was flying back from a work ski trip in Austria, I was on the window seat with two work colleges beside me. They were talking like crazy and I was gazing out the window, as you do. I could see this figure in the distance in front of us and then as we flew closer this shape appeared. I asked the ladies beside me to look at it too in case I was seeing things. They too were amazed! I then took some pictures and then the aircraft slowly passed it. It was in view for about two minutes as it was a good bit away in the distance. To me it looked like the Michelin man but to be honest I have no idea what it was," said O'Donoghue. Continue reading for two enhanced images of the object.
Businessman Angelo Mastropietro spent 8-months transforming a 700-year-old cave in the Wyre Forest in Worcestershire into a modern home, complete with running water, underfloor heating and even high-speed WiFi. Most surprising of all, he took on the project single-highhandedly, without hiring outside contractors. Everything from carving, cutting, drilling into the sandstone hillside - including excavating 70-tons of stone by hand - had to be carefully planned. Continue reading for a 50-minute grand tour of the unique modern home. Click here to view more images of the cave house.
While attempting to recreate the experiments of engineer Nikola Tesla in the late 1970s, Hutchison claims to have discovered many new phenomena, primarily manifesting in metals. The effects of his experiments supposedly included metal objects floating to the ceiling, shattering, becoming warm, fusing with other objects and other interesting manifestations. These disparate manifestations are all lumped together under the name "Hutchison Effect." Continue reading for more strange enigmas that defy explanation.
Victor Enrich decided that freelancing as a 3D architectural illustrator just wasn't for him, so he set out on a long journey to find his passion, starting with a photo manipulation series called "City Portraits". "These series of pictures are the result of a 7 year long journey that brought me to countries such as Latvia, Israel and Germany. The story begins in the summer of 2006, a crucial date in my life, because after 2 years of deep thinking, I finally decided to quit as a freelance 3D architectural illustrator, a job that had kept me busy for over a decade," said Enrich.

When a monster truck is crossed with a sport compact, you get the $1.1-million Youabian Puma. It's powered by a GM-sourced 7.0L V8 LS7 engine that produces 505-horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. This all-wheel-drive beast can sprint from 0-60 mph in 5.9-seconds. Or, if you have the need for speed, it can also be equipped with a supercharged 650-horsepower engine for. Continue reading for two more videos and additional information. Click here for more images of the Puma.
Chopping the tops off vehicles goes back to the early days of the hot rod scene, and is essentially an attempt to reduce the front profile while increasing its speed potential. To start the process, the vehicle's pillars and windows are cut down, lowering the overall roof line. Some dry lake racers chop the tops in extreme fashion, so the windows are mere inches tall, making them "mail slot" windows. In the example above, we have a chopped Volkwsagen Beetle, complete with a wide fender kit. Click here to view the first image in this week's things that look like other things gallery.
