Carbon Fiber Stormtroopers!

“Leonard Carson, an engineering technician for San Diego Composites, had been toying around with this idea of a carbon fiber Stormtrooper for a long time. He finally convinced three of his engineering co-workers to jump on board with turning this carbon fiber idea, into a carbon fiber reality. Being the huge Star War fans that they are, and often working with the material for their composites company, I’d have to guess not too much convincing was necessary.” w/ photos

Sunken Pedestrian Bridge!

From afar, the Moses Bridge is invisible to the eye. The flow of the moat appears continuous, as the water level remains at the same level, reflecting the surrounding foliage. As visitors approach the fort, the bridge appears as a break in the water with its sloping walls containing it. First lying flush with the earth, the bridge then descends deeper into the ground. Lined with wood sheet piling for walls, the deck and stairs sit between. The bridge and its components have been made from sustainable hardwood that is Cradle to Cradle Gold certified. The Accoya wood is also treated with a nontoxic coating, protecting it from fungal decay and increasing its durability — an ideal material for a sunken bridge.” w/ photos

The Santa Claw

“What would it take to get the whole world to stop for a minute and play a game? It would have to be something huge. Something awesome. Something anyone, anywhere could play… We built the biggest claw game ever and invited the world to play it online. The game was designed and constructed in our workshop and installed in our front windows. The 2,000 pound steel structure stands 12 feet tall, 17 feet wide, and 8 feet deep. Two remote-controlled wheelchair motors allow players to control the claw with the click of their arrow keys from thousands of miles away.” — Real Art
