Japanese Tattoo Table

The unfortunately named ‘Yakuza’ is a digitally tattooed wooden table by Reddish Studio. It looks like it’s part of a collection. We have no idea what the ‘digital tattoo’ process involves, but it definitely looks pretty cool. It’s made out of veneered MDF with some kind of digital printing technology.

It uses two basic seat designs, both available with multiple base options. These days you see them reproduced in different kinds of plastics, as well as fibreglass. The wood or metal...

JCVD

He’s back. The Muscles from Brussels. Jean-Claude Van Damme. In a movie that actually looks good. I’m serious, it actually looks good, check out the trailer above and decide for yourself. I like the willingness to take the piss out of himself coupled with some rather nice soul as the backing track. That and the line about Steven Segal winning the part cause he promised to cut off his ponytail. Ah, the trials and tribulations of an aging action star.

DIY USB Eraser is simple genius

I hate it when people think of really simple cool stuff that I don’t think of. I’ve been trying to think of a clever original USB drive enclosure for ages. Wood is cool, so is a plush toy and so is a humping dog. There’s a whole bunch of USB thingies we’ve come accross, after the jump. Anyway we love this eraser. Instructables have a good little guide on how to make one yourself. Althought its so obvious you probably don’t even need to see the step-by-step thing. Anyone seen any other awesome novelty USB things? Make your own here. Humping Dog DIY USB Teddy Kool USB Lighter USB Wristband – kinda ugly USB “thumb” drive USB...
