Paper Mustang

This life-sized replica car made completely from paper has hit the road, but it’s not going anywhere fast. Brooklyn artist Jonathan Brand has constructed every single part of a 1969 Mustang coupe using nothing but paper. The 31-year-old made a digital blueprint of the car and then printed it on a large-format inkjet printer. The different components were cut out and folded to make every single part of the car, right down to the nuts and bolts. The final work will not be assembled into an entire vehicle, but remain as separate pieces of art. The vehicle is on display in an exhibition entitled ‘One Piece at a Time’ at the Hosfelt Gallery in New York City until October 29.” w/ photos + video

Car Door Edge Protector

“The black bar moves in and out according to the position of the door, the closer the door is to the body of the car the closer the bar is to be tucked in. So the faster you close the door the quicker the black bar tucks itself in. The bar isn’t controlled electronically so one shouldn’t worry that something could go wrong causing the bar not to tuck in properly.”

QR Code Island

The model itself is offers up some intriguing possibilities, that someone will probably jump on before long. This could lead to people putting QR codes on top of their buildings or carving QR crop circles (squares?) that could be read using Google Earth, providing additional details for locations you scan from above. The idea would be perfect to let alien invaders know what’s really up on planet Earth, if they ever come knocking at our front door. Also, it also could provide much needed entertainment for the handful of astronauts floating around in space.” w/ photos

Doggy Church

It was supposed to be a canine paradise where dog owners could come to mourn the loss of their animal friends. But a dog chapel in Vermont is in imminent danger of closure, ten years after it first opened after the owner died. After her husband Stephen’s death two years ago, Gwen Huneck, of Saint Johnsbury, has been battling to keep the unique establishment open. In 2000 the couple opened a visionary church which celebrated the spiritual bond between people and their dogs. Stephen built a chapel in the style of a small village church, before attaching a handmade statue of a giant yellow labrador with wings to the roof.” w/ photos
