I WANT IT!!!!!!! >A<
Here is the website that sells it....http://02a5349.netsolstores.com/ciel.aspx
I would love to see someone wears it and cosplay Ciel.
If anyone of you are buying it please leave a comment.
I will be so excited if any of you can provide a photo of you wearing it.
If you want I can also post your photo on my home page for a whole month!~
Two British artists used the 3D printer printed a kite that can actually fly.
"Wales-based artists Heather and Ivan Morison's deceptively heavy looking cube is based on the tetra kites developed by Alexander Graham Bell in the race towards manned flight.
But it has been realised with cutting edge lightweight material - including 3D printed nylon connectors - allowing its 23,000 individual components to float across the sky as if weightless."
"Appearances can be deceptive: Heather and Ivan Morison's Little Shining Man sculpture looks heavy, but can be flown as a kite".
Lightweight: The sculpture has been assembled from 23,000 individual components made from cutting-edge lightweight materials
"Double meaning: Little Shining Man is intended as an installation artwork, but will be taken once a year to the beach at St Aubin's Bay and flown
The Little Shining Man kite is made from carbon fibre rods, a hand-made composite fabric normally used for yacht sails and specially designed, 3-D printed nylon connectors.
The sculpture, commissioned by luxury property developers Dandara, was created in collaboration with architectural designer Sash Reading and Birmingham-based fabrication design studio Queen & Crawford.
The Morisons are well-known for their installation art pieces, which combine futuristic materials and design to create lavish spectacles.
The design of the structure takes a double wing module, duplicates it and arranges it into a tight, cellular structure that appears as a heavy unflyable mass.
Small triangular units have been opened out by 30 degrees and multiplied up into colliding cubes that take their shape from naturally occurring geometric forms of the mineral Pyrite.
However, using lightweight materials and the symmetry of the module and composition, it is able to fly freely and steadily. "
Ethereal: The design of Little Shining Man takes a double wing module, duplicates it and arranges it into a tight, cellular structure that appears as a heavy unflyable mass
" Provenance: The design was inspired by the tetra kites developed by Alexander Graham Bell in the race towards manned flight
The kite flown in the images is one section of an arrangement of three, that come together to create the final piece which is hanging in the atrium of Dandara's Castle Quay development in St. Helier, Jersey.
It is intended both as a permanent piece of sculpture and a working kite, and once a year it will be taken down from its display to be flown in nearby St Aubin's bay.
Mr Morison said: 'When we first took it out onto the beach you could feel the sculpture come alive; it wanted to twist and tumble as we took it across the sands.
'As the wind took hold it rose slowly, bobbing just above our reach, until a gust caught its sails and lifted way up above us.
'Standing there, watching this complex form that had taken us months to plan and build, rise high up into the sky was truly breathtaking. We felt as Bell must have in his early experiments into flight – a time of true wonder and optimism.' "
Complex: The Little Shining Man kite is one section of an arrangement of three which come together to create the whole sculpture
"Challenges: The whole structure took months to build, but the process was helped by three-dimensional printing processes".
"Dramatic: The finished piece will be on display in the atrium of Dandara's Castle Quay development in St. Helier, Jersey".
"Crystalline: Small triangular units have been opened out by 30 degrees and multiplied up into colliding cubes that take their shape from naturally occurring geometric forms of the mineral Pyrite
The Morisons said there were several challenges they and their collaborators faced in designing the Little Shining Man.
The structure had to be as strong and light as possible in order to fly, but had to return to earth with minimal damage so it could be installed as a piece of sculpture, they say.
Carbon fibre rod and Cuben fibre, a hand made composite fabric used primarily in racing yacht sails, achieved the perfect combination of strength and weight.
The visual impact of the fabric produces an ethereal sense of depth and refraction that gives the heavy mass the lightest touch."
"Schematic: Using lightweight materials and the symmetry of the module and composition, Little Shining Man is able to fly freely and steadily".
"Plans: The whole artwork took 16 months from concept to completion
Queen & Crawford designed a universal nylon joint system, the CKJ_01, that would handle every connection in the composition.
They worked closely with 3TRPD in Newbury who are at the cutting edge of the Rapid Prototyping Industry. Printing the joints allowed design, production, testing and refinement in a short time frame.
Queen & Crawford's director, Matthew Higginbottom, said: 'Modern design and manufacturing technologies open up an infinite world of possibility.
'Our ideas are sketched, digitally modeled and physically printed in the space of just hours.
'The science fiction of our youth is a reality and Little Shining Man shows us this; at once elegant sculpture and robust flying structure.' "
Holiday season is here~
How about a diamond in a praline?
A praline (made of dark ganache, caramel with essence of ginger and gold leaf) adorned with a single 3.63 carat diamond.
This is the result of a collaboration between chocolatier Paul Wittamer and jeweler Fabienne Lascar.
It is priced at $240,000.
There is also a cheaper one adorned with Cubic Zirconia priced at $26 at Wittamer's shops.
Charly Molinelli found the crashed Ferrari one day and put it in the "coffin".
Then a coffee table was created.
The price of this art was thirteen thousand five hundred dollars.
Now it is in a private home.
The colors of the wood and the car go perfectly together.
And the way he putted the plate and the logo make it more fancier.
Even if it is not Ferrari I will still love it.
The brand it is a bonus.
I know this is not new but I still want to share with you today~
Here are the pictures I get from search engine.
Here are some others that I found very interesting.
A Russia artist Qwaqa used 3 years to finish this video.
All hand drew.
How did he do that~~~???
Is there a trick or something???
Did he do that simply by tracing??
Even it's done by tracing, that needs a lot of skills to finish this well-known art piece by drawing circles.
Want to know what I am talking about???

Here is their description.
"Are we so consumed by all things big that we lose ourselves in them?
What if fulfilment rests on a grain?
What if we can find purpose in small things?
Like humility, simplicity, and even significance?
Take rice, the staple food for the world.
A grain so humble and infinitesimal.
Yet, a cradle of life for so many.
Seek out the small.
For within them, we find greatness."
World's smallest train layout~
"This is a Z scale model of an N scale train layout--a model of a model.
And it works. I built it to sit in the window of a Z scale hobby shop on my
'real' train layout, the James River Branch. (By the way, it's about one-third
the size of the last one I made.) You can read how it was built here: http://jamesriverbranch.net/detail_16.htm "

Here is the description for this video.
"Professor Fletcher's invention of the CellScope, which
is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a
teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm girl called
Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world. All the minuscule detail was
shot using CellScope technology and a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera
and Carl Zeiss optics.
