Can Japanese novelty bras really be functional?

Novelty bras

My Chopsticks Bra: Enables a user to store foldable compact chopsticks in a side pocket. The bra is designed with bowls of rice and hot miso soup.

Speaking of boobs, Japanese lingerie company Triumph unveiled its Make-The-Putt Bra today. Triumph creates two novelty bras each year, typically centered on important issues in Tokyo. In the past, some have involved solar panels, miso soup, voting and baseball. Take a look at all of them on Huffington Post and make a vote to which you think are best and which are a bust (haha…)!

Commercial illustrator Théo Gènnitsakis was born in Greece, and is now Creative Director of design agency LA SUNRISE in Paris whose modus operandi is “Audacity is the safest path” (check out their blog, it’s kinda funny). Well, it’s definitely safe to assume we know what Théo enjoys! And…safe to say that I feel a bit violated looking at these, haha.

Okay okay, while I know that 1) Halloween was more than a week ago 2) This video doesn’t look like much, you gotta watch it because some high school teacher really attempted to make math class awesome & also used some really clever video art techniques in the process. WATCH IT!

Chadwick Gibson’s curious sculptures

"View-Alters", Two Viewmatser Model-L Front Pieces, 2006

Los Angeles based artist Chadwick Gibson makes sculpture/devices that border on usability and absurdity by making the innards of various playground-use balls visible in his “Time Out Series” (can you still play tennis when your tennis balls are flipped inside out?), and combining the functionalities and inherent experiences in an elevator and a guillotine with the piece “Speed of Judgment” (mimicking a beheading followed by the sensation of floating above ones headless body).
