Dogs Groomed Into Works Of Art

If you are the kind of person who enjoys dressing your dog – then perhaps this is the next step. These pets have been transformed into a bison, a court jester and a scorpion at America’s extreme dog grooming contests. The dogs have all been sheared and coloured in the name of art. Animal photographer Ren Netherland from Florida, travels thousands of miles every year capturing these stunning transformations at ‘creative grooming’ shows around America. In addition to sculpting other animal’s out of their beloved pooches, competitors also carve intricate designs such as a Native American headdress on the side of their ‘buffalo’ dog, It takes two intense hours for the creative groomers – mainly women – to produce their masterpieces before facing judges. Expert dog snapper Ren said: ‘The owners have to grow out their dog’s hair in preparation for the show – so that it’s long enough for them to make something.” w/ photos

Golf Course Makes Life Easier For Tired Golfers

For any golfer whose fitness isn’t what it once was there’s usually a buggy to help get around 18 holes. But one enterprising golf course has gone a step further by installing a travelator to ferry players between its first two holes. The Scholss Auel Golf Club near Cologne, Germany, splashed out $246,825 on the smooth-running walkway after its management were inspired by watching ski lifts carry people to the top of the slopes. ‘We have quite a hilly golf course, saw that this kind of thing is used at ski resorts and we thought maybe we can do that on the golf course,’ the golf club’s manager, Wener Witte, told Metro. ‘We found a company who produces them and said: “Do you think we can do this?” They came, they measured, they installed and there it is.’Anything but par for the course, the conveyor belt is said to be the first of its kind by the golf club. As is the case with many golf clubs a per centage of its 1,200 members are elderly and they are particularly pleased with the innovation.” w/ photos

The Typescreen

Tablet computing is the way of the future. But unfortunately for those cursed with normal sized fingers, these technological advancements can become burdensome lifestyle obstacles and usability nightmares. Like many, we have often wished for the convenience of a touch screen interface with the ease of a traditional typewriting keyboard. After 16 months of intense product design and laborious research and development we are proud to say that our wishes (and hopefully yours) have finally come true!  From texting to web browsing, the new Spinning Hat Typescreen gives you all modern functionality of an iPad with the sleek classic feel of retro typewriters that we all miss so dearly.” w/ photo
