Phil Weicker and Duncan Forster, Los Angeles-based friends and fellow car enthusiasts, spent nearly six years converting a classic 1969 Cadillac Coupe de Ville into an awesome mobile hot tub, the Carpool DeVille. Both former engineering students, the pair devised a watertight steering system and a way to use the car’s original V8 engine to maintain the hot tub’s ideal water temperature of 102F. The Carpool DeVille holds about 5000 lbs of water and has been fitted with a marine throttle to keep the engine running. What was the trunk now holds a pool filtering system.
Weicker and Forster recently used a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to get themselves and the Carpool DeVille to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah this August in hopes of setting the Land Speed Record for the “World’s Fastest Hot Tub.”
"Nobody’s ever gone a hundred miles an hour in an open-air self-propelled hot tub while sitting neck-deep in soothing warm water. We aim to correct that mistake of history this August."
Head over to the Daily Mail for additional images as well as video footage of the Carpool DeVille in action.

Well Deserved Swim
A swimming pool awaits intrepid travellers in the middle of the Mojave Desert. The 11x5ft secret oasis is located in south-eastern California and was built by Austrian visual artist Alfredo Barsuglia. The free retreat includes a solar-powered filter and chlorination system, but visitors face a challenge to get there if they want to take a dip.

Grid Nail Packaging by Enle Li
Grid is a student project completed at the School of Visual Arts. The assignment was to pick anything from a hardware store and to redesign or to repurpose the existing packaging. I’ve decided to repurpose the package design of the nails by putting them in an organized system. With order, we will no longer hesitate to reach for intimidating edged nails.

How Ink is Made
(I left out a couple parts for clarity, where towards the end they add wax and fillers, though please watch the video. It’s beautifully shot and goes into more detail,..)
(plus it has epic orchestral music in the background which makes any learning experience more badass).
True story: I once got to tour Hewlett Packard’s R&D labs where they develop printer inks with their regulatory toxicologist. This gifset gave me the best flashbacks.
