Yum! Paper Donut, a French collective of visual artists, has managed to make paper look absolutely delicious.The eggs look divine and I just want to grab that knife and spread the paper jam on the paper toast. Don’t even get me started on how perfect all the fruit looks. I’d love to see what they’d come up with for a paper dinner accompanied by paper dessert.

A Sci-Fi Lover’s Dream Wardrobe: Givenchy Spring Couture
By March 7, 2011

CV Givenchy Spr2011 01 A Sci Fi Lover’s Dream Wardrobe: Givenchy Spring Couture design This unconventional line of spring couture designed by Riccardo Tisciby for Givenchy caught my eye with its Japanese-inspired design sensibility and imaginative sci-fi vibe. With elements sewn together to incorporate the classic Japanese icon of a crane paired with bold Philip Treacy headpieces that look like a cross between a samurai helmet and something out of Star Wars, these dresses manage to look both techie and classically traditional at the same time.

The iPad 2 Smart Cover

 The iPad 2 Smart Cover products other design

I was not a fan of Apple’s first iPad cover. It took the elegant form factor and sleek tactile feel of the iPad and buried it inside a bulky, boring parka-like case. With the launch of the iPad 2, Apple appears to have taken the criticism seriously and introduced a new transforming cover in place of a case. Built in magnetic panels, the Smart Cover rolls up to form a stand with a minimal footprint. It comes dressed in either leather or polyurethane and dipped in a variety of colors. It even wakes the iPad when the cover is opened, and puts it to sleep when it’s closed. How cool is that?

The Dog Bark Park Inn is a charming bed & breakfast in Cottonwood, Idaho where you get to sleep inside a giant beagle!

Entering the body of the beagle from a second floor deck, guests will discover decorative furnishings carved by chainsaw artists Dennis & Frances and dog-shaped cookies waiting on the pillows. Up another level inside the head of the dog is a loft where you can sleep right in the muzzle of the Beagle, making for a truly remarkable stay.
