Think Michelangelo’s so great? Imagine if he’d painted the entire Sistine chapel, instead of pussying out and just doing the ceiling.

Japanese artist Kahori Maki is a skilled graphic artist in two-dimensions, but when she switches to three the result is like a mimeographed LSD trip. Imagine being locked in there. You’d be schizophrenic within the half-hour.

I know you’ve seen the older version of this driving around in your neighborhood, but this one is not your normal Nissan GT.  The limited edition GT-R is a subtle evolution of the super coupe that’s set the world on fire after its introduction last year, and Nissan claims that it offers race car-levels of performance in a street-legal vehicle. I’m not going to bore you with technical details, but just a few highlights would be 478 horsepower at a cost of $170,000.  For you car buffs you can read all about it here

Lingerie maker Triumph International Japan Ltd unveiled its environmentally friendly, and green colored, “Solar Power Bra” on Wednesday in Tokyo which features a solar panel worn around the stomach.

The pannel requires light to generate electricity and will not be in stores soon, because obviously people can not go outside clothes-less. But lingerie can now save the world…would you (ladies) wear one?
