3D Photos with BumpyPhoto

One of my pet peeves with digital photography is that many of us no longer print most of our pictures, preferring instead, to store them in digital format. Naturally, our photo albums seem to stop with photos that date back to about five years ago.

Maybe those of us who are busy writing obituaries for conventional photo albums should take a pause and check out the BumpyPhoto Site; we may change our minds about continuing with ..

Octopus Chair by Maximo Riera

It can be hard to make your home look unique.

No matter how bad your handwriting was, you could type up a letter and know that it could be easily read by whoever you needed to send it to.

OK, so it isn’t technically a “ride” and any fans of the similarly titled 2000 martial arts movie will no doubt be disappointed to learn that this isn’t a tie-in attraction either ..

Why wouldn’t anyone want a floating lamp in their living room or bedroom to entertain guests; especially those of the opposite sex, it’s the ultimate bachelor/bachelorette pad essential!
