Chandeliers from the future!

A silver winner of the LG OLED Design Competition, the Versailles Chandelier by Alexandre Boucher mixes history with the future. It uses flexible OLED technology to create a chandelier that visually stays true to its roots, mimicking the overall silhouette, but rather than using bulbs to illuminate the massive lighting fixture (and glass/crystals to disperse the light), the Versailles Chandelier lights up itself, thanks to the properties of OLEDs.Fit to be seen in any palace ballroom, the Versai...

Designs for Better Boozing: Hip Flask With a Built-In Collapsible Shot Glass

A hip flask is a great way to tote booze around, but nothing makes you look like more of a degenerate than when you purse your lips to wrap them around that tiny spout. To sip your swill with class, what you need is one of these: The one in the video is Jameson-branded, so we assume they ordered up a bunch and handed them out at the company Christmas party. But you needn't work for them to get one; these are sold on Amazon under the BarMe brand.I like that the product copy describes the fla...

The Beecosystem: A Modular Indoor Honeybee Hive With Outdoor Commuting Tube

Ant farms are lame because the ants don't really do much, other than walk around showing off how much weight they can carry. Wouldn't you rather have an indoor beehive, where you can see the little buggers making honey? "I sure would," you say, "but I don't want to get stung everytime I let them out." Of course you don't! That's why entrepreneur Michael Zaengle developed the Beecosystem. This hexagonal-shaped viewing case features a transparent tube that "vents" outside of your window for ing...

If you feed your doggo and puppers foods made by the J.M. Smucker company (and the list is long), you are definitely going to want to read this.

Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), the senior senator from her state and the chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, wants her party to start talking about climate change.

Hedgehog highways make London friendlier for the adorable spiny mammals

Urban areas don’t tend to be too kind to hedgehogs. Their numbers are declining in Britain, however some people are trying to help. Enter Michel Birkenwald, a jeweler Atlas Obscura described as “one of London’s most enthusiastic engineers of infrastructure for animals.” Birkenwald builds hedgehog highways — and they’re pretty darn adorable. Hedgehogs have declined by around 50 percent in the UK and by one third in urban areas, according to Emily Wilson of hedgehog advocacy group Hedgehog Stree...
