Barbie-head-filled wedges


Even if you've got $265 to spend on a pair of wedges whose hollow soles are filled with doll-heads, you're out of luck. They're sold out. (via Neatorama)

3D printed Princess Bubblegum crown

Solid gold DNA-strand rings


Zanders Creations' solid 18k gold DNA Strand Ring starts at $750 and is available in four colors. The image is a computer render, and the Arizona-based team that makes the rings consists of a 3D artist and a jeweler who collaborate on some very beautiful pieces.

Bikini top that looks like bare breasts


The $28 Tata Top is a bikini top with nipples situated to suggest that the wearer is topless (should the wearer have skin color that matches the top, of course!). It's a pretty effective illusion, at least for the model used in the publicity photos, and the maker suggests it's a way to challenge discriminatory laws that hold that bare chested women in public are damaging to the social fabric, while men are able to wear as much or as little above the waist as they choose.

Betabrand line of space-themed streetwear

untitled

Our friends at crowdfunded clothier Betabrand held a hack day to design a line of space-themed streetwear called Mission Control! A slew of space enthusiasts participated, including BB contributor Ariel "Spacehack" Waldman. The crowdfundable prototypes include the Voyager Gold Record Tee above, Galactic Carry-On and Dopp Kit, a sweatshirt with the Arecibo message (which would be a great complement to our own Boing Boing Areciboing t-shirt), and other far out designs!

Gloriously complexified necktie-tying machine

Seth Goldstein's Why Not machine is a glorious Rube Goldberg device that can tie (and untie) a necktie. It's a kinetic sculpture, slow and beautiful and inefficient in a way that can only be called artistic. It's headed for exhibition at the Franklin Institute Science Museum in Philadelphia. Its inventor, a retired engineer, revels in its unuselessness: "That's not something you can economically justify, but if you're a retiree, you don't have to worry about that anymore. I'm free!"

Walking Dead "Don't open/Dead inside" beach-towel


The Walking Dead -- both the TV show and especially the comic -- is a triumph of visual storytelling; the infamous "Don't open/Dead Inside" panel with its chained-shut doors and grasping, bloody fingers prying around the edge is a marvel of visual economy and horror, which is what makes it just about the perfect thing to emblazon on a beach-towel. The towel measures 30" x 56" and costs $25. (via Crazy Abalone)
