There’s nothing more powerful than a child’s imagination. At least, that’s what the artists at The Monster Project (previously) believe. The initiative sees artists transform children’s drawings in to life-like monsters. And the end result gives a rare insight in to the imaginations of children. Continue reading »
“Here’s the church, here’s the steeple, open up the door and here’s all the… finger monsters!” Finger Monsters are one of our best selling products of all time. If you had them as a kid, you probably still have one stuck on a pencil on your desk at work. These 2″ tall fiends are perfect for low (and we mean really low) budget puppet shows. Each one has a different excited facial expression ranging from a panic-induced menace to a menacing panic, so the possibilities are endless. Set of eight (one of each style). Continue reading »

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has provided scientists the first close-up, visible-light views of a behemoth hurricane swirling around Saturn’s north pole. In high-resolution pictures and video, scientists see the hurricane’s eye is about 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) wide, 20 times larger than the average hurricane eye on Earth. Thin, bright clouds at the outer edge of the hurricane are traveling 330 mph(150 meters per second). The hurricane swirls inside a large, mysterious, six-sided weather pattern known as the hexagon.
“We did a double take when we saw this vortex because it looks so much like a hurricane on Earth”, said Andrew Ingersoll, a Cassini imaging team member at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. “But there it is at Saturn, on a much larger scale, and it is somehow getting by on the small amounts of water vapor in Saturn’s hydrogen atmosphere”.
A major difference between the hurricanes is that the one on Saturn is much bigger than its counterparts on Earth and spins surprisingly fast. At Saturn, the wind in the eye wall blows more than four times faster than hurricane-force winds on Earth. Unlike terrestrial hurricanes, which tend to move, the Saturnian hurricane is locked onto the planet’s north pole. On Earth, hurricanes tend to drift northward because of the forces acting on the fast swirls of wind as the planet rotates. The one on Saturn does not drift and is already as far north as it can be.

Welder Li Lianzhi poses with his huge bicycle, which is about 2.7 meters in length and 1.9 meters in height. Li Lianzhi spent 20 days and $1,110 making the bicycle. To balance the bicycle, Li injected 100 kilograms of water into the front wheel, so the bicycle weighs nearly 400 kilograms. (Barcroft)

Yes, it’s real. Nothern Territory News photographer Katrina Bridgeford took this amazing front page photograph of Brutus, a 5.5m (~18 feets) saltwater croc, giving a boatload of tourists a moment they’ll never forget on the Adelaide River, just over 100km south of Darwin, Australia, last week. The huge saltwater crocodile, which is missing its right front leg (a shark issue), is a favourite with tourists on the Adelaide River Jumping Croc Cruises, because he loves his meal of buffalo meat and always puts on a good show for it.

The group of enthusiasts were collected 40.000 used plastic bags and 7.500 used plastic cups from 12 kindergartens, 21 primary schools, 4 high schools and 3 faculties from the city of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and from more than 500 people from Ljubljana.
Plastic Bag Monster from Ljubljana spreads its plastic tentacles through the streets of Ljubljana. It symbolizes the spreading of the consumerism and waste segregation. The monster itself has adjusted to the environment and therefore survived. It is supplanting us from the food chain. It just might succeed and it’s all up to us. It is reproducing with inconceivable speed and knows no mercy. It feeds on individuals’ sloth and irresponsibility.
