If you have some cash burning in your pocket and ready to upgrade your new MacBook. Try to enhance it with a custom design etched into the lid with the help of a laser. Dunno if your local tattoo parlor is equiped with a laser, but tattooist Scott Campbell from Brooklyn has and did a great job on this MacBook. Costs; $200 for a regular design, $300 for a bring-your-own design.
Apparently, shaving is very trendy these days. The disadvantage of shaving is that you can’t switch designs very quickly. Well, now you can.Bearded on the outside, freshly shaved on the inside. Vice versa shouldn’t be a problem either.Another option is to print your boy/ girlfriend on these printable undies, in order to prevent cheating. Animal prints are, however, a big no-no.Availability unknown. The Chewbacca edition should still be in stock.

Believe it or not the humble train/subway station is the new mecca for design. All over the world leading architects are transforming major subway/underground station platforms into aesthetically pleasing places for the people, many of them featuring original art works, all in the name of making the daily commute to work a little less dreary.
Here's our pick of some of the best: For individuality Hong Kong's Airport Line, London's Jubilee Line extension and Tokyo's Oedo Line. Munich, Zurich and Prague have some great interiors, while Moscow and Saint Petersburg are also standouts. For art we love Brussels, Montreal and Stockholm.
One of the most basic principles of making visual art, light as a medium itself takes many forms. From the continuum of fluorescent tube-based works starting with Dan Flavin's pared-down constructions and more recent works by Leo Villareal and Spencer Fitch (Sunset (South Texas, 6/21/03) pictured) to Bruce Nauman's tongue-in-cheek neon, Tim Noble and Sue Webster's interpretations of Vegas strip-style signs and Jenny Holzer's LED proclamations, light installations often play off the captivating nature of luminescence.
Other artists, like Felix Gonzalez-Torres' delicate strings of lightbulbs and Tatsuo Miyajima's interactive, pulsing LEDs, use light as an elegant metaphor for weighty themes, like life, death, and existence. Connecting light to the physical world, James Turrell makes large-scale, sky-like expanses, while Olafur Eliasson recreates weather. Check all these artists out and more on Artkrush.
