  • The Orvillecopter

    As far as gruesome and distasteful gadgets go, the Orvillecopter takes the biscuit. 

    Dutch artist Bart Jansen decided to give his deceased kitty a send-off more memorable than having him stuffed or turned into a diamond -- instead, kitty Orville became a helicopter. 

    The taxidermied cat has landing skids on his belly and rotors on each of his four paws to allow flight. A Lotus 580 engine TURNIGY Plush 30amp Speed Controllers,HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board V3.0 and 4s LiPo gives kitty his wings.

  • Wearable LED lights

    Fashion encompasses everything from fur to metal, but can LED lights really make a mark in the industry?

    The LED Eyelash project aims to do just that. Whether a gimmick or not, Soomi Park's wearable LED eyelashes certainly make an entrance. 

    Perhaps best suited to the neon-bedecked raver, Soomi calls the wearable tech a way to cater for female desires of having larger and more expressive eyes. Instead of relying on eyeshadow and mascara, the model above is connected up to a pair of fake eyelashes, explained as such:

    "It features a sensor to turn on and/or off. The sensor can perceive the movements of the pupil in the eyes and eyelids. If you wear it and move your head, LED Eyelash will flicker following your movements. It is as simple to use as wearing false eyelashes and as easy to remove as taking off a piece of jewelry."

  • The Marriage-Hunting Bra

    A new type of functional clothing that hails from Japan, the Marriage-Hunting Bra (Konkatsu Bra) has been designed by Triumph International.

    If time's ticking on and you're looking to tie the knot, marriage-minded women can purchase this bra and set the LED display timer in the middle of the garment to display a countdown -- relating to when the lady hopes she'll be married.

    The white-lace bra also has a ring holder and pockets for a pen and official stamp seal if the LED display isn't hint enough.
