Why does this man have an ear in his arm?, Ep. 216
Hey guys, my name is Stephen Beacham and here's what's happening this week on Cnet's Crave Blog.
And it has it's own blood supply.>>Have you ever been too lazy to walk and you just wish you had some wheels attached to your shoes to get around faster?
Well that is the concept behind Walk Wings, currently raising funds on Indiegogo.
Walk Wings look like those old school skates you strap to your shoes, and were clunky and didn't really roll very well.
Now with the flip of a lever, you can deploy your Walk Wing roller skates for a much faster and lazier commute.
Walk Wings were designed to In collaboration between shoe designers and automotive engineers to create something that looks stylish but still functions as a roller skate.
To me it looks like a snowboard binding with wheels attached.
WalkWings come in two different colors and have interchangeable cap styles that you can carry around in a custom backpack.
You can get your very own pair of WalkWings now for a $90.
Pledge on Indie GoGo.
The zombie craze is totally out of hand at this point.
So why not build a zombie hand to take zombie selfies with.
The Zelfie Hand for Zelfies puts a creepy disgusting decomposing hand.
In the shot of all your selfie stick photos to help make them a little more frightening than your face already is.
It's pretty self-explanatory.
The Zelfie stick is currently raising funds on Kickstarter, and can be yours for a $16 pledge.
Have you ever wanted a zombie apocalypse anywhere you are?
Engineers plan to build a see through sky pool that will connect like a bridge between two large buildings.
The project is set for construction at the Embassy Gardens Development in Southeast London as part of a $23.5 billion dollar development.
Pool designed by a Arup Associates will measure 25 meters in length by 5 meters wide and hold a 150,000 liters of water and will be four feet deep.
The pool will be suspended 35 meters or 115 feet above the ground which will make taking a swim in this pool very terrifying.
The director of the alternate anatomies lab at Australia's Curtin University known only by one name, Stelarc, has implanted a human ear in his arm.
He plans to wire the ear with a The tiny microphone so that people on the Internet can log into a website and hear what his arm ear hears at any given time from anywhere in the world.
You still see the bars moving on our transmitter which shows that the microphone is still picking up sound, the ear's still functionally working.
Stelarc has been working on this project for 12 years, and still has plans to add an earlobe and make the ear look more three-dimensional by raising it a little higher off the skin.
This ear is pretty much now,
Part of my arm.
It's fixed to my arm and it has it's own blood supply.
Crave will keep you up to date with his progress, and hopefully in the future we will get to listen in on his ear arm,
Or arm ear, whatever you want to call it.
