Hubless Custom Motorcycle

This amazing looking custom bike runs on the hubless wheels(spokeless wheels)and was designed by the guys at Amen Design.

Inspired by Franco Sbarro's hubless wheels. Hubless wheels work by fixing the rotating parts (brake ring, bearings, hubless rim) onto the outer side of a non-rotating inner ring that attaches to the motorcycle's swingarm or forks.

Advantages include decreased unsprung weight, reduced structural stress (no spokes to transmit forces through), increased braking leverage, more accurate steering, reduced vibration and a lower center of gravity.

Check this bike in motion. Looks so great! A guaranteed head-turner....


Phone Booth Aquarium

A telephone booth aquarium. By artists Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino for the Lyon Light Festival in France.

"With the advent of the mobile telephone, telephone booths lie unused. We rediscover this glass cage transformed into an aquarium, full of exotically coloured fish; an invitation to escape and travel."

Snake Wine

Snake wine and Scorpion wine are asian beverages that can be found in some Southeast Asian countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, Laos Cambodia, but also in Korea, and Japan.

To prepare this incredible beverage a cobra snake or some scorpions are put into a bottle fulfilled with transparent rice wine liquor and some herbs are added before the drink is left to ferment for months. The venomous cobra snake used to make Snake wine is preserved to have the snake poison dissolved in the rice wine, but because snake venoms are protein-based they are inactivated by the denaturing effects of ethanol, and no more dangerous, but this makes a healthy liquor with many health benefits.

Many types of snake drinks can be found all across Asia, but the most famous one and the only original one is the one found in Vietnam, Thailand, and Laos, the famous Snake wine that you can only find online on our website.

You can order online a Snake wine or Scorpion wine bottle by clicking here.

81 Year Measured with Sand

This amount of sand will last for 81 years when put into hourglass. Just think about it - most of us live just about the same number of years. How short is that? Rolex Time sand is packed in 30 kg bags . Each bag’s content equals 30 days flowing in a standard hourglass. On the 18 palets, there are 972 bags with a total weight of 29.160 Kg. They last for 81 years- our generous estimation of an average lifestime.
