Armless Chinese Artist Paints Using Only His Teeth and Feet
http://ping.fm/59erl

Losing an ear didn�t seem to detract from Vincent Van Gogh�s artistic
skill, but Chinese artist Huang Guofu�s use of only his mouth and feet
is quite remarkable.

Self-taught, after his father became ill an 18 year old Guong 18 chose
to leave school and pursue painting as a profession in order to help pay
for his father�s medical treatments. He started selling his art on his
local streets and some were purchased, albeit generally through sympathy
and for �charitable� amounts.

Follow the link to watch the video of Huang Guofu in action.

The Strand Craft Super Yacht with a Super Car
http://ping.fm/DDGpI

The conceptual Strand-Craft-166, a somewhat stealth-like looking craft
that is certainly super in every sense of the word, and unsurprisingly
features a floating “garage” in the aft.

The yacht would certainly not look out of place in a James Bond movie.
There is a retractable fly-bridge, a hidden spa that features a built-in
bar, and the living area boasts five double ensuite staterooms equipped
with 52-inch Bang & Olufsen televisions, mood lighting and there’s even
the option of the upholstery being crafted from bullet-proof Japanese
Samurai tread leather.

Created by Dutch designer Robert van Embricqs, The Rising Chair was
borne from one fundamental question: "To what degree is the object
you're creating capable of dictating its own design?"

With straightforward beam-like wood strands, The Rising Chair is formed
by a grid-like pattern that "blossoms" into what seems like a complex
flower petal.
