Jason Thielke is an artist based out of Colorado that is doing some very interesting work with the process of laser etching and wood. Thielke’s pieces are a narrative on both gentrification and urban decay and are heavily modeled on standard architectural processes from the conceptual phase (hand drawing them out) through to the final production involving laser etching wood and then lacquering it.

Mind games take on a new meaning:

A new sex toy designed by New York-based product consultancy Aruliden is the perfect gift for the horny, fabulously rich chess fanatic in your life.

It’s a chess set with pieces that double as vibrators, 32 in all, from round-tipped pawns to knights shaped like anal beads. Like any decent vibrator, they’re made of medical-grade silicone and ABS.
