Mario & Link Skittle Art

Possibly two of the most iconic video game characters ever, get made with possibly one of the most iconic candies of all time. At first I thought the skittles making up Links’ sword and Mario’s feet were black, but then I remembered there are dark purple skittles in every original bag. Almost discovered a long lost color way. (Thx L’INSOLITE DANS LE JEU VIDEO/Via GameVain)

Heineken: Glow-in-the-Dark Aluminum

The world’s leading beer brand; Heineken, has just begun a new design program coined the ‘open design exploration’, that will create vibrant new concepts for bars, clubs and social spaces around the world. The first project in the program will launch in June 2011 and will invite emerging designers to create a pioneering ‘pop up club’ that will be shown (/and partied in) in Milan to coincide with Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2012. Which is why this first design for the contest works perfectly, a glow-in-the-dark aluminum bottle with a rad shooting star design that glows when exposed to black lights in the club. Hopefully Heineken will expand on this concept and bring them to the states so I can glow around the club. Check out how it glows after the jump. (Thx Wallychamp)

Beer Nutrition Pint Glass

With the new law stating that calories must be listed on menus here in California, everyone is becoming very aware of calorie counts and general nutrition facts. Since you’re already blowing that diet by eating terribly and drinking on the daily (I assume, unless you live vicariously through this site, which I applaud), you might as well look health informed while doing it. Look on the bright side though, no matter what you put in that glass, it will always have 0 grams of fat. ($8 @ UrbanOutfitters)

Barfy Burger

Argentina is famous for the meat offerings it has at its restaurants. But not everything from Buenos Aires seems so easily edible. Random grocery stores sell Barfy Burgers, but beware these will make you barf (/terrible joke) (Thx Random-good-stuff)

Chocolate Camera

You think your 20 megapixel camera is great? I know you think your iPhone is the cutest thing ever in its Hello Kitty case. But even that doesn’t compare to how awesome this chocolate camera keychain is from Fuuvi Japan. With a 0.3 megapixel CMOS lens, built-in rechargeable battery and memory, the chocolate camera takes retro looking pictures as well as old movies (/without sound). Just don’t eat it.
