Comments Off on Friends Use Recycled Cardboard Boxes to Build Amazing Life-Size Pirate Ship!

Three creative eco-artists have built an incredible life-sized pirate ship out of recycled cardboard ! Three Reddit-using friends named Josh, Mikey and Joel made the ghostly ship in just five days for what was probably the best Halloween party ever. Armed with just a hot glue gun and box cutters, the trio masterfully transformed old cardboard boxes into a meticulously detailed vessel fit for Treasure Island. The friends came up with the idea for the ship when planning a “Halloween Party on Treasure Island.”  To prepare for the project, the friends began what they call “trolling”- or stalking the streets for piles of cardboard left at curbsides , waiting for garbage truck pick up. The trio loaded these bounties up in their car and hauled the cardboard to the warehouse-studio where the party took place. Using hot glue and blades, the guys began building up the massive ship. Cardboard planks make up its sides, and circular holes were cut out to serve as portholes. Larger sheets of cardboard were cut to make curly waves licking at the base of the boat, while trimmer remnants added texture to the faux- wood on the side of the boat. A tattered, discarded sail was hung from the ship’s cardboard mast. The intricate piece was crowned with a ghastly figurehead depicting a skeleton witch with wild cardboard hair and a curling cardboard tongue. The incredible project shows what a little creativity can do with material otherwise headed for the garbage. Via Bored Panda

Comments Off on Tesla CEO Elon Musk in Talks With Google to Develop Self-Driving Cars

Tesla Motors has long worked towards producing the car of the future, and the  Model S may well be the perfect electric vehicle for the middle class. If getting 265 miles per charge wasn’t enough to certify the sedan as an example of cutting edge technology, CEO Elon Musk recently told Bloomberg that he was in talks with Google to develop an autonomous driving system. Musk could take advantage of Google’s 500,000+ road miles to develop the technology, which he refers to as “autopilot” instead of “self-driving” to assuage fears of malfunction.
