There’s a German artist built a life-sized paper boat and plans to sail for 40days before it eventually disintegrates. The artist came with this idea one breakfast time when he was sitting at his kitchen table playing with an empty milk carton which he cut up and made into a scaled-down model. The paper boat that he sailing measures 30 feet long, weighs 55 pounds, uses a 170-square-metre piece of Tetrapack paper. It took only two hours to construct.

Sixteen-year-old schoolboy Tom Wood spent just over 30 minutes to crack the Australian government’s new $84 million Internet porn filter:
A former cyber bullying victim, Tom feared a computer-savvy child could work out the bypass and put it on the Internet for others to use.
Tom, who spoke to Communications Minister Helen Coonan about cyber safety during a forum in May, said the Federal Government should have developed a better Australian made filter.
“It’s a horrible waste of money,” he said.
“They could get a much better filter for a few million dollars made here rather than paying overseas companies for an ineffective one.”

I’m a huge fan of the Science Fiction toys from the 40’s and 50’s. I enjoy the level of optimism and naivete present in these works. Robots represent the best parts of us, they’re programmed with our best intentions. Robots in a sense are more human than human, they’re logical rather than ideological.

If you lie down like the girl above on a normal pillow, it will block one of your ears. But not this, the Sound Catching Cubic Pillow, a pillow which channels sound through strategically designed holes. You can answer your call by placing the phone in the holes instead of holding it with your hand. I’m sure this is for those lazes that stay at home for movie for the whole day. Sound Catching Cubic Pillow is available for $17.33.
Look at the girl in the picture once more, looks like her head is off her body. Hehe, it’s because her hair and the pillow are black in color.
