Glow in the Dark Ice Cream

Glow in the Dark Ice Cream

Would you pay $200 a scoop for glow in the dark ice cream? What about ice cream made with jellyfish? Well, they are actually one in the same. You may think glow in the dark, that can’t be healthy or isn’t that toxic? It would be it they would have used glow sticks to make it (not recommended), instead they use special jellyfish parts that have a natural bioluminescent. Don’t worry, if jellyfish aren’t your thing there is a non-jellyfish version made from the quinine in tonic. Created by Charlie Harry of Lick Me I’m Delicious, a man with passion for invention. His nickname “The Edible Inventor”. Here is his personal description of the ice cream and how it’s made: “But what on earth is it??? It’s glow in the dark jellyfish ice cream using calcium activated proteins that react when they are agitated, or to put it a non sciencey way, it glows when you lick it. It’s also pretty insanely expensive stuff, we worked out each scoop is coming out at around £140, dam those big bucks jellyfish. Is it safe to eat? Well I tried some and I don’t seem to be glowing anywhere, so we’ll go with a yes for now. We’ve also made a non-jellyfish version using quinine from tonic to make a glow in the UV dark gin and tonic sorbet which is pretty neat and can be ordered from all good Lick Me I’m Delicious event contraptions. Next we’re working on an invisibile ice cream. Any scientists or magicians out there who think they can help, please get in touch.” (Lick Me...
Nike’s LunarENDOR Quickstrike: LED Snowboard Boots

Nike’s LunarENDOR Quickstrike: LED Snowboard Boots

Nike’s new LunarENDOR Quickstrike snowboard boot merges the art of LED lighting with the art of snowboarding. This may seem like an unusual place to find LEDs (on a boot), the facts are that children have been promenading with their light up tennies and multi-colored LEDs for over ten years. Just recently snowboarders have begun to incorporate LEDs into their suits and accessories, including their boards, helmets and more.  This new LED light addition to snowboard equipment helps their snowboard gear look stunning while still, and amazing as they sail down the mountain at night. Beyond the LEDs, Nike has put considerable effort into impact distribution and its customizable flex line system that allows you to you choose from three levels of stiffness.

MEYSTYLE’s Magical Swarovski LED Wallpaper

MEYSTYLE’s Magical Swarovski LED Wallpaper

Applied the same way that traditional wallpaper is installed, except this wallpaper has an added bonus, embedded decorative LEDs with Swarovski crystals. Although lighting is generally something seen hanging on a wall or from the ceiling next to your wallpaper the designers at Meystyle have integrated the two to make a functional and decorative product. Sure wallpaper fads have come and gone over the years, but the integration of LEDs has just upgraded wallpaper from “Okay maybe I’ll try it.” to “Wow, that’s cool!” Sure the wallpaper is not capable of illuminating an entire space with light, but it does add a special ambiance via Swarovski crystals and LEDs. “MEYSTYLE’s mission is to rescue walls from the background, integrating bold patterns with LED lights and crystals to create a deep visual experience that transforms walls and wallpaper into works of art.” (MEYSTYLE) Video: LED...
