Who says you can’t reinvent the wheel? Well, Michelin Tires did just that by creating a revolutionary airless tire that needs no air, can absorb shocks, wear, tear, and even survive explosions. Pretty cool, watch the videos here and here. (above)

Soft Cork Ring!

A bunch of you have asked me about this ring which I wear every so often. Well, I was playing around with some cork for a side project, and decided to make something from the leftovers, and bahm, a ring made from cork, then squished into a rectangle shape, then hardened with epoxy, though I’m testing out other elements such polyurethanes, glues, starches, and other such compounds. I’m still playing around with mixing cork with other materials such as leather, silver, or wood…hopefully I’ll have more to show soon.

I’ve added it to the sidebar “Stuff I rock” section, or you can get a larger glimpse of it here.
