Life Noggin explains how people with different types of blindness perceive the world. Depending on the cause and extent of the blindness, the age at which the person became blind, and other factors, a person’s perception of the world around them can vary greatly.
A creative human named Sam of Prefabcat crafted wonderfully eccentric “ark” for his beloved cat Dinni. The entire structure is built out of cardboard and held together with hot glue. Being that Sam loves making things out of cardboard and Dinni loves cardboard, there was no way that anything could go wrong.
Cardboard is so easy to find and use. I assemble it all with a hot glue gun.I designed this new cardboard cat tower with moving parts, giving Dinni alternative movement around the tower. some stepping planks that can be pulled out, ramps, sliding windows and some storage draws for his toys.
Self-taught filmmaker Simon Scheiber of Trim Tab Design has created “The Lighthouse“, a brilliant black-and-white, stop-motion animation that tells the story of a sleepy keeper who discovers that he can design a world of his own with his own hands and a bottle of ink. This wonderful piece was shot using over 14,000 photos over the course of seven years.
A lighthouse keeper’s surprising discovery pulls him out of his monotonous, daily routine and takes him onto a journey into uncharted territory. Made up of over 14,000 photographs, The Lighthouse is a black and white stop motion short crafted by filmmaker Simon Scheiber over the course of 7 years.

When Preston is sending you on errands for the beloved Minutemen, you’re going to get thirsty. Or tired. Probably both. That’s why we turned your favorite accessory for traveling across the wasteland in to your new favorite mug. Much like the Pip Boy, this mug isn’t compact. This mug will hold up to 48 ounces of whatever beverage you need to keep you battling those Deathclaws.
The Fallout Pip Boy Molded Mug features a vault dweller’s ace-in-the-hole for surviving the wasteland recreated on a ceramic mug. This mug is perfect for the wastelander who doesn’t know when the next time they’ll actually come across a non-irradiated beverage might be, because this thing holds up to 6 cups! What? You thought something as huge as a Pip Boy would be a small form factor? Absolutely not. Authenticity, my friends.
British Columbia, Canada maker and University of Victoria chemistry professor Scott McIndoe (a.k.a. “makendo“) has created a colorful 3D periodic table lamp based on French geologist Alexandre-Émile Béguyer de Chancourtois‘ “Telluric Spiral.” The tutorials are available to view on Instructables.
The first periodic table was developed in 1862 by a French geologist called Alexandre-Émile Béguyer de Chancourtois. He plotted the elements on a cylinder with a circumference of 16 units, and noted the resulting helix placed elements with similar properties in line with each other. But his idea – which he called the “Telluric Spiral”, because the element tellurium was near the middle – never caught on, perhaps because it was published in a geology journal unread by chemists, and because de Chancourtois failed to include the diagram and described the helix as a square circle triangle. Mendeleev got all the glory, and it is his 1869 version (dramatically updated, but still recognizable) that nearly everyone uses today. This instructable documents my efforts to reimagine a 3D periodic table of the elements, using modern making methods. It’s based on the structure of a chiral nanotube, and is made from a 3D printed lattice, laser cut acrylic, a lazy susan bearing, 118 sample vials and a cylindrical lamp. (read more)

Brave Wilderness host Coyote Peterson traded in his trademark brimmed hat for a helmet as he and his crew rode through the desert of southern Utah on Polaris RZRs provided by St George ATV Rentals and Tours to search for preserved tracks that were left by dinosaurs over a hundred million years ago.
Believe it or not there are still places in the world you find the footprints of real Dinosaurs, and although the Brave Wilderness team are usually on expeditions searching for “living” wildlife, this adventure was just too epic to pass up!
During the unexpected first snowfall of the season in Montréal, QC, Canada, office worker Willem Shepherd and Th4tCanadianGuy captured the frightening sight of cars, buses and even a snow plow sliding into a crazy traffic pileup due to the unplowed street. Luckily, according to Shepherd, no one was badly hurt.
The accident happened at 10am on Beaver Hall and Viger in Montreal. No one was seriously injured! Drive safe.
