A milk carton that looks like a cow being abducted by aliens

To come up with a milk package design that kids would love, a studio in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, didn’t just think out of the box, they thought out of this world.

The packaging concept involves imaginary dairy brand Molocow’s milk carton made to look like a UFO abduction.

Its logo resembles a cow vanishing as it’s beamed up towards the bottle cap, which is shaped like a spaceship. As for the contents, the milk makes the beam appear like a flashing white light, just like in the movies.

It’s this kind of playful design that’ll make you want to buy aesthetically conscious products moooore.

A rescued lion had the best reaction to his Easter basket gift

A rescued lion had the best reaction to his Easter basket gift

After being rescued from a circus in Peru, a lion named Leo received a gift for Easter – and it looks like it was a surprise gift too, judging by the big cat’s reaction!

Animal Defenders International (ADI) recently posted a hilarious photo of Leo just after he opened his present. He and 32 other lions received boxes full of hay, spices, clove water, egg crates, and any feline’s favourite toy, balls of rope.

Their biggest gift, though, is to come next month: a trip to their new home, the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in Africa.

“When we rescued Leo from the circus, he seemed so sad and broken, but in ADI’s care he has absolutely blossomed and re-discovered his inner kitten,” wrote the organisation on Face…

This vegan reggae star got fed up with people asking what he eats, so he wrote a song about it

After becoming fed up with people questioning him about what exactly vegans can eat, British Rastafarian reggae star Macka B went ahead and wrote a song all about it, called ‘Wha Me Eat’.

Though veganism is hardly new, the subject of what exactly vegans can eat is a popular question from carnivorously minded people. But constantly explaining his diet to curious fans obviously became too much for this dancehall legend, so he proceeded to create this song.

The tune and accompanying video play out as a musical grocery list with hilarious lines such as:

“When I tell people I don’t eat meat, fish or dairy

“They look at me strangely

“They don’t realise I eat a very wide variety&#8…

This mural of a bear looks like it’s popping out of the wall

This mural of a bear looks like it’s popping out of the wall

At first glance, this mural of a bear might seem like its nose is popping out of the building. Upon closer inspection, it’s actually just a clever optical illusion by street artist Okuda San Miguel.

Previously, the Madrid-based artist revived an abandoned church by turning it into a skate park. Now he’s set his sights – or paintbrushes, rather – on an apartment building in Hong Kong.

With his signature style of using geometric shapes and vibrant colour combinations, San Miguel transformed a drab wall into a massive illusion. He and his team made the artwork as part of the HKWalls Street Art Festival, and it only took four days to complete it.

The Internet is perplexed: what the hell is that creature swimming in the River Thames?

A mysterious creature lurking beneath the waters of the River Thames was caught on film and has everybody running for their lives debating on its identity.

The eerie footage shows what seems to be a pair of massive fins bobbing out of the water for a few seconds before submerging again. Its shadow can still be seen beneath the surface, metres across the O2 arena in Greenwich, South East London.

Some speculate it could just be another April Fools’ Day joke. Others say it’s Nessie. The most plausible explanation would be is it’s simply a sperm whale.

In 2006, a Northern bottlenose whale was spotted and dubbed as the “River Thames whale.” It was the first sighting of the species…

Tokyo looks like a modern-day cyberpunk setting in these photos

While on a trip to Tokyo, graphic design director Liam Wong imagined the city as if it were the setting of a glorious cyberpunk tale.

His series, entitled ‘Neo Tokyo’, focuses on neon signs and lanterns illuminating dark alleys and quiet streets. Giant billboards lighting busy intersections in the pouring rain feature, as does Spider-Man – of all people – posing in cyberpunk fashion.

It’s so romantic, in a dystopian sort of way – it’s reminiscent of Blade Runner.

Wong’s surreal compositions bring out a stunning contrast between light and dark, and the old and the new, making the bustling metropolis more futuristic than it already is.

Good guy invents biodegradable water bottles made from algae

A student at the Iceland Academy of Arts has invented an eco-friendly water bottle. Instead of using plastic, he used a material that decomposes easily: algae.

Most water bottles have a life span of about 450 years, although the really stubborn ones take up to a thousand years to break down. In the US alone, consumption of these plastics reach 50 billion yearly!

That’s why product design student Ari Jonsson came up with a bottle made from algal, a product of algae. It maintains its shape as long as it’s full. Once it’s empty, though, it starts going back to the environment.

“I read that 50 per cent of plastic is used once and then thrown away so I feel there is an urgent need to find ways to replace some of the unreal…

Oasis Eco Resort will be a 5-star mirage come to life

Baharash Architecture has designed a resort that will be just like a futuristic oasis in the middle of the UAE desert.

Called the Oasis Eco Resort, it’s slated to be finished by 2020 and is dubbed as the greenest of its kind in the world. The property will be surrounded by 157,000 square feet of solar panels, supplying a hundred percent of its energy needs.

It also makes use of a natural spring found on-site. It will be used for irrigation, fish farming, a natural habitat for wildlife, and recreational activities. The company will also hire biologists and conservation staff to ensure harmony between local wildlife and their clients.

The restaurant, meanwhile, will grow its own organic food or brought in fresh da…
