The Nero by Bandit 9 Motorcycles takes the classic BMW Chang Jiang 750 motorcycle to a whole new level. A matte black finish covers every inch of this refurbished road cruising machine. An almost completely level streamline from handlebars to tail fender contributes to the elongated aesthetic of this high-end cruiser.
If you are an author, it has to be somewhat infuriating to know that books are slowly but surely on their way out. This is exactly what bothered the small book store and publishing house Eterna Cadencia to the point where they’ve taken action.
They decided to print a literary collection of some new Latin American authors. That on its own doesn’t sound too interesting, but what they printed it with is the amazing part. The book is called El Libro Que No Puede Esperar (The book that can’t wait), and it has been printed in invisible ink.

Part of the allure of Ikea–besides its dirt-cheap furnishings–is the DIY ethos. Once you get your Billy bookcase home, you’ve got to assemble it, a process that, once you’ve finished cursing the confusing instructions, eventually results in a feeling of immense satisfaction disproportionate to the level of difficulty of the task at hand.
Dino Sanchez understands the sense of accomplishment people derive from building even the simplest things, so he’s designed a minimalist table lamp that users can put together with just a Phillips-head screwdriver in less than ten minutes.
Travel anywhere far from civilization for any considerable amount of time, and you’ll be wanting a large tent. But with large tents come large metal spikes, hammers, and other oddities from the past.
Not so with this inflatable tent from Heimplanet, which will be the joy of campers, surfers, and overzealous dads everywhere.
The Solar City Tower is a concept envisaged by Zurich based architecture and design studio RAFAA. The design was created for a competition in 2009. The images show an artist’s impression of what the proposed tower might look like if constructed. However, the project is just a proposal and the tower may never actually be built.
