ferrofluid shoe

Take a look at these crazy 3D printed Nike sneakers as magnetic ferrofluid rolls back and forth across the surface. I’m half expecting some sort of hideous monster to come bursting through.

Originally, ferrofluid was designed by NASA to draw fuel to the engine using magnetic fields rather than a pump for efficiency in a weightless environment.

As part of the advertising campaign for Nike’s new Kevin Durant line of sneakers, a design studio called Guild resurrected this medium for an impressive display. What looks like some weird alien creature climbing down the shoe is actually the inky ferrorfluid following magnetic waves.

If you can’t make it to the live display at the Niketown NYC location, then click below to watch the mesmerizing video after the break (UPDATE: Official video added). And bring on your best Terminator jokes.

disney swimwear 2

These new Disney-inspired swimsuit designs by Blue Bunni Cosplay are fantastic and they take into account that women come in all shapes and sizes.

As Bunni explains:

Some folks have wondered why the plus size models have more skin covered, and I just wanted to say that being a fluffy gal myself, I drew these as something I’d wear personally and I prefer more skin covered. It doesn’t matter which suit is on what model – it really all comes down to what your personal preference is regardless of what your body is shaped like. Once I get around to producing these, I will have both looks available in all sizes.

She’s also looking into bringing her designs to life, so if you want a swimsuit, you’ll want to follow her.

This big, beautiful smile belongs to baby Jack, and that awesome helmet is the work of his father. Jack was born with craniosynostosis, a condition where an infant skull prematurely fuses, and helmets are used as a corrective measure.
