Pac-Man

Ever since my sister got the Phantom of the Opera mug where the phantom mask would turn white upon being filled with hot water, I have been fascinated with mugs like that.

Here’s one that brings us back to childhood days of fun and games.

When cold water or nothing is poured into the mug, you will see only the outline of the pac-man game in bright blue lines.

But when hot liquid is poured into it, the game comes to life right before your eyes. This is due to a heat sensitive lamination on the mug, which kicks into gear. Don’t you think this is rather cool?

Harry Potter Reimagined

I have all but one Harry Potter books in my book collection. But this makes me want to sell them all and then buy this set.

They… glow in the dark.

To make it even more magical, they are interactive.

The amazing thing about these books is that they were a final year student project. Here is what Kinsco Nagy has to say:

The Harry Potter books are so magical so mysterious and so adventurous. Basically these books are on the border of childhood. Therefore my goal was to redesign them with such illustrations that able to show this extraordinary atmosphere of the books. I started to experiment with interactive illustrations what not distract attention from the plot, but add to the story.

SHADDUP AND TAKE ALL MY MONEY.

“The term ‘halted traveller’ is usually associated with German romantic painters like Caspar David Friedrich, to describe a person seen from behind facing a landscape. The lonely wanderer appears to have been halted by the view of the landscape.

This implies to us as a viewer that there is perhaps more to the landscape than we see. One can also identify with the figure. His posture invites you to imagine what he feels facing this landscape in front of his and your eyes.”
