A Pen That Can Do It All...

Steampunk Pen ! A Pen That Can Do It All...

This pen has to be the most amazing pen ever. It looks like a gun with a bronze/gold color. To be more precise it is a steampunk pen that looks like the Swiss knife, and it has a lot of functions. It can be a flashlight, a pen of course, a flash drive, a spoon, a knife, a fork, a toothbrush, a nail clipper, etc.

So if you are on the go, just grab the steampunk pen and you are ready to run to wherever you need to be at. The flash light is blue and it looks like a laser pen, but I guess it’s not dangerous as the blue light is weak. If you need to eat fast food for example you can always use the knife, the spoon or the fork to finish up your meal. And of course it has a watch, so you can see what time it is in any situation. I think it might be a bit clumsy writing with the pen because of all the stuff that is attached to it, but better to have a clumsy pen than no pen. Something that reminds me of this steampunk pen are these calculators from the past.

A Sofa Made of Coins

Johnny Swing is a very original furniture designer who decided to give literal meaning to the phrase "sitting on cash" by building a series of sofas and chairs out of thousands of coins.

His latest creation, entitled "All the King’s Men" was made out of thousands of 50-cent coins, which makes it not only ridiculously uncomfortable, but also insanely expensive. Each coin was welded to a steel frame, which obviously takes a lot of patience, but considering Johnny has done it a few times before, it probably wasn’t that much of a problem.

While it’s not the kind of comfortable furniture you’d want to slouch on when you get home from work, Johnny Swing’s coin sofa is definitely something to look at, especially knowing that owning it is actually illegal in many countries.

Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) Photos

All these pictures are from the book 'Microcosmos,' created by Brandon Brill from London. This book includes many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of insects, human body parts and household items. These are the most amazing images of what is too small to see with the naked eye.
