I’m Not Entirely Sure I Could Sleep With This Above My Head

We bought an aquarium 6 or so months ago and since then we’ve been a little bit fish crazy, but I’m not entirely sure I could sleep with this thing above my head. It’s made by Acrylic Tank Manufacturing and cost a whopping $11,500 (That’s a little over £7k) but it’s still really cool, there are 650 Gallons of water in there, which means you can have a lot of fish…

I’ve been meaning to post some funky Aquariums for quite some time, so this is my excuse to post a few more like this bathroom sink for example by Italbrass it’s only $4,500:

You know what in looking I’ve found a blog post by someone else that has 20 unusual aquariums… I’m not going to replicate their effort…

 

 

Shiny LED Cathedral!

I thought our LED tree was a little excessive, but no apparently for the 2012 Festival of light in Gent they built an entire cathedral out of LEDs! It’s a bit mental. If you told me about this I would have thought it would look really tacky, but from the pictures it quite beautiful.

The Luminarie De Cagna is an imposing cathedral-like structure that was recently on display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. The festival was host to almost 30 exhibitions including plenty of 3D projection mapping, fields of luminous flowers, and a glowing phone booth aquarium, however with 55,000 LEDs and towering 28 meters high the Luminarie De Cagna seems to have stolen the show.
