Technology Pin Up Art

I love this classic 50’s pose with a modern day tech backdrop from Frankon’s Flikr account. He has a ton of great work with this same model.

Shockingly Useful Shoes

As of now they are just a prototype. But Simona Brusa Pasque is sporting the shoe with a hidden secret - a concealed taser. The mean streets of NYC, Milan, Lebanon, (you name it), are no longer a match for the properly attired woman. Although this might be Bondesque right now, I wouldn’t mind a pair in the future.
From the site:

Cinderella is no more without defenses; waiting for the prince to save or worse to chose her. She goes out and enjoys the world without fear; she can now intimidate intimidators without losing her innocence.
She can have her freedom, Cinderella transforms herself into Barbarella: sexy curious queen of discovery.

Also check out the very clever senerio video.

Space Couture

Who doesn’t want to look good while accelerating upwards outside of ones atmosphere? Well in order to get a jump on what constitutes proper attire for space tourism, the Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) has launched a design competition for clothes to float around in! Thanks to artfuture for this story.

Kate Moss: Dust to Dust

Kate Moss continues her comeback. Before being renamed to be Burberry’s public face she ‘appeared’ in Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2006 show - sorta.

Moss materializes inside a Louve style pyramid and floats majestically in the air. See the video of her hologram over at Style (fast forward to about the 5:35 mark)

Fendi sues Wal-Mart over sales of fake handbags

Neiman Marcus. Saks Fifth Avenue. Sams Club.

The only thing the 3 merchants have in common are, well nothing. Especially now that Wal-Mart (owner of Sams Club Discount-Rama) is being sued by Fendi over the sale of alleged fake Fendi merchandise. In one example cited in the lawsuit, a black handbag bearing Fendi’s trademark logo was offered for sale in a Sam’s Club store in Miami for $508.25, 45 percent less than the retail price of $930 for a genuine Fendi bag.

If I am going to get a SamDi, I sure as heck am not going to pay over $500 for it. If the price is too good to be true, it usually is.
