Furniture Made from Reindeer Parts (apologies to Rudolph).

The "A Part from Reindeer" collection by Thailand's Anon Pairot Design Studio are unique furniture designs which incorporate the body parts from reindeer. No, real reindeer were not killed for this project, but instead fiberglass casts of reindeer parts were painted either antique gold or black and made into the limited collection of benches and seats, which are available for purchase.

The CardSharp, Cutting Edge Design (literally) and Beautiful Packaging.

The CardSharp 2 from Iain Sinclair is a cool little functional utility knife that is beautifully incorporated into its package design.

Just three ingenious folding operations metamorphosize the card into an elegant pocket utility tool.

Measuring the size of a credit card, the lightweight, ultra thin Card Sharp 2 has stainless steel surgical blade that measures just under 3" long and is both waterproof and rust-proof.

Updated features (from the original Card Sharp) include a stiffer, non-slip armor rubber coated body and unique safety lock (cannot accidentally open when in a pocket or drawer and is child proof).

For only £15 GBP ($25 USD), the Card Sharp2 makes a great and handy gift or stocking stuffer, especially with the option to customize the blade (as shown below):

Impressive Augmented Reality Allows People To Enter The World of National Geographic.

In an impressive display of augmented reality (video further down in this post), people in a shopping mall in Hungary got a chance to pet a cheetah, play with velociraptors, stand within biting distance of a T-Rex, endure a thunderstorm and walk with an astronaut amongst other exciting experiences via technology from the UK's Appshaker.

Appshaker recently launched a unique way for people to interact with the amazing world of National Geographic Channel's content from around the globe.

Using the principles of augmented reality, people could immerse themselves in different scenes such as dolphins, leopards, the space landings, dinosaurs and more.

Thousands of people interacted with the National Geographic Channel brand in the process as it toured Hungary, with thousands more people sharing snapshots and video on Facebook as a result.

For more information on appshaker, please head to and a huge thank you to Vertigo Digital whom they worked with to create the amazing 3D.
