MOTOR CYCLES FROM WATCH PARTS

 
 

Motorcycles from Watch Parts

If you were going to throw away your old watch and add to the metal pollution, wait a second!
Take a look at what digital curators like Dmitriy Khristenkho of Ukraine and Dan Tanenbaum of
Canada are doing to stop these old watch parts from landing in the garbage can. 

Turning junk into spectacular mini bike sculptures, it's a delight to see such intricate and detailed work of art.

These miniatures actually take a lot of time to be built as opposed to their size. 

Each part has to be shaped using grindstone to get perfect shape and size and then each component is 

painstakingly glued by hand to finish the masterpiece. It roughly takes about 50 hours to complete

 one model. Phew! So tiny but it sure is a hell lot of work! Since the work involved

 is a lot so are the returns, as each piece costs up to 700 pounds.

The makers of these motorcycles say that the most important part is to 

put together the two wheels, handle bars and petrol tank and the 

rest is pretty much an expression of one's imagination.

 Of course sometimes the clients also ask for custom makes.

While most parts are those rescued from scrapheaps, some of the components on 

these motorcycles are parts from Vintage watches. Many people request to 

convert their ancestral watches into model bikes to immortalise their worth in an artistic way.

Super cool and incredible aren't they??? Well next time don't give away or throw 

your old watch. Just break it, shape it, stick it and make your own custom model bike. 

It's not easy to make but for sure is an amazing art.

Brinquedos pedagógicos reciclados para berçárioVou postar mais algumas dicas para trabalhar com reciclagem de materiais, esta para os professores de maternal e berçário. Esta dica é para fazer seus próprios brinquedos pedagógicos, usando material que você tem em casa. A sugestão aqui proposta tem o objetivo de fortalecer mãos e pulsos, explorar os níveis de habilidades motoras finas e grossas, a concentração, curiosidade de causa e efeito, entre outros benefícios. Dica daqui.
Eu amei esta dica acima, feita com latinha de leite e palitos de picolé pintados. Pra fazer basta encapara a latinha com papel. Depois corte fendas na tampa, para encaixar os palitos. Pinte os palitos com tintas coloridas. A ideia do brinquedo é que o bebê retire e empurre as fitas observando suas habilidades.
Vamos ver outras sugestões? Todas usando latinhas de leite em ninho, toddy, nesca…

Cities After World War III

Apocalypse now: Russian artist transforms real-life photographs to show how cities might look after the end of the world

You could be forgiven for thinking that these incredible images are simply scene grabs from a computer game or film depicting some imaginary and non-existent world.
But these pictures are actually photographs of modern-day cities around the globe that have been manipulated by Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin.
Manyuhin starts with original snapshots and then adds digital decay and overgrowth to depict what well-known places on earth would look like after an apocalypse. This image from Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin's Life after the Apocalypse is reminiscent of scenes from the 2007 film I am Legend By night: The same scene of a deserted city - minus some lions - with the sun slowly setting in the background Underground: Manyuhin has transformed a picture of a tube line in to a scene of destructio…
