Amputee Josh Sundquist Turns Himself Into a Clever One-Legged Foosball Player for Halloween

Amputee Foosball Player Costume

For Halloween this year, Paralympic athlete and leg amputee Josh Sundquist has made himself a foosball (table soccer) player costume, complete with the curious mono-leg found on the typical foosball player. Sundquist has been creating Halloween costumes that cleverly take advantage of his missing left leg for the past several years — we posted about his costumes back in 2013.

Beautifully Simple Furniture Made From Apple Power Mac G5 Cases, Wood, and Glass

Apple Power Mac G5 Furniture by Klaus Geiger

In an effort to extend the useful life of the iconic aluminum-bodied Apple Power Mac G5 (2003-2006), designer Klaus Geiger has created BENCHMA[®]C, a line of furniture made out of Power Mac G5 cases. To convert the computers into furniture, Geiger first removes the internals. He then adds drawers to the cases, and pairs the Power Macs with wood planks and glass to form benches, tables, and other furniture.
