This tasty lamp shade was created by designer Alexander Lervik, it’s a chocolate pyramid over an incandescent light bulb. When you turn on the light he chocolate slowly melts and eventually you are left with a puddle of tasty chocolate goo to dip fruit, marshmallows, fingers or other body parts in.
I’m not entirely sure how it keeps the chocolate warm and melted once its in. The bowl, but I’m sure it has a way of doing that.
The Poetry of Light chocolate lamp, unlike other lamps, is completely dark when you first turn it on, mimicking light spreading along the horizon at sunrise. The heat from the lamp causes the chocolate to begin melting, and it takes several minutes for the first rays of light to penetrate. Holes soon form and as the light grows the chocolate melts. The material and structure of the lamp are the result of pure curiosity. Alexander Lervik wanted to explore the possibility of creating a contrast to light, i.e. dark. The shape of the lamp has been devised based on extensive testing involving the melting process.
I don’t normally post dresses that aren’t in some way shape or form geeky but this one is pretty cool. I found on Pinterest which lead me to Dress A Day but that article seems to have gone walkies as it’s 404’d on me, luckily Style Pantry still has it. The dress is by Luly Yang (Website plays music…)
What man could possibly not want to shave his mustache and beard into the shape of the bat signal? What man indeed? Well Redditor Captain_Auburn_Beard did just that, and we all respect him all the more for it!
These finger-less gloves in the shape of Mario powerup mushrooms are available from Nerdifacts on etsy. You can also buy a set that is just red or just green.
It wouldn’t take much to convince me that these chocolate covered peanut butter cookies were awesome, I’m a huge fan of peanut butter cookies and who doesn’t like chocolate. The fact that they are made in the shape of button in tribute to Neil Gaiman’s novel Coraline is just a bonus.
Steve Jobs would have celebrated his 57th birthday this year my friend Chris is a complete Apple Fanboy and his birthday is a day later than Steve’s. So his lovely girlfriend Jen made him this cake depicting him and Steve sitting next to one another on a cake in the shape of an Apple logo.
Chris is such an Apple fan-boy that someone gave him a framed picture of Steve Jobs and he kept it on his desk at work, often referring to him as his “lord and saviour”.
The Cake was Accompanied with a set of Cup cakes with iOS icons on them:
More pictures of the cake and cupcakes:
The discerning consumer might notice that that is an IKEA chopping board.
In case you are wondering what is going on behind Chris, he’s recent’y started to learn some card tricks, I assume that is a magic wand (He’s going to go see Paul Daniels soon which he keeps on saying is going to be the highlight of his year), the can is a can of IRN BRU, and I assume Chris has been watching Game of Thrones on his Laptop.
I ate way too many of these cupcakes…
Another one off, there is nothing like this 0bscurity’s Etsy store front, it’s a pretty cool hoodie though.
So, rather than take a million years building an actual Hot Rod costume – which I’d like to do one day regardless – I decided to make an every day version in the shape of a hoodie. And now I love it.
More hoodie designs are in the works – You can check them out as they show up at my etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/0bscurity
