Amsterdam-based artist Cedric Laquieze (previously featured here) recently completed a fascinating new series of his exquisite taxidermy Fairies. These delicate sculptures are primarily composed of parts from many different insect species, but if you look closely you’ll notice bones, seeds and even a few scorpion parts as well.

Visit Cedric Laquieze’s blog for many additional images and to check out some of his other enchanting creations.

Birds Of A Feather | by Claire Rosen.

A brilliant live portrait series by Claire Rosen featuring vintage wallpaper backdrops to accentuate and highlight the colors of each bird, which range from the common Parakeet to the exotic Hyacinth Macaw.

As seen on: Honestly WTF.



Smartphone users often complain about the poor battery life on their phones. News sources often lament the poor health of the general population. Researchers, with an eye to both problems, have now invented tattoo biobatteries that power your phone through sweat.

The researchers presented their findings at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society. The tattoo biobatteries respond to lactate, the conjugate base of lactic acid, which is naturally present in sweat. The more exercise, the more sweat, the more lactate, and the  better charged the electronic.

What a way to encourage good exercise!
