A while back we wrote about a Japanese made Ice Ball Maker. It made 1.2 inch perfectly round ice balls but cost around $300. The Tovolo Ico Sphere Mold ($10) can basically do that same thing at a much lower cost. The package comes with two silicone molds that can make two 2.5" ice spheres. The molds are stackable and can easily fit in any refrigerator. The expensive version works by taking a large ice cube and compressing it in the mold. This version works by filling the molds with water and freezing them. Either device will give you a great final product so you can really enjoy an awesome glass of your favorite drink.

Looking for some skate decks that make a statement, then take a look at the art project called the Study of Perspective - The White House 2017 Skate Decks ($666) by artist Ai Weiwei. The White House skate decks are part of a larger body of work by Ai Weiwei that seeks to combine activism and art as an overt critical response to the current political climate in the United States.The complete project is a series of images shot between 1995 and 2003 which shows Ai flipping the middle finger to buildings across the globe. These buildings are either landmarks or symbols of authority.Ai will be using the monies from the project to support a number of NGO's. These include the B'Tselem organization which promotes human rights in Israel and Occupied Territories as well as Halklarin koprusu a non-profit charity based in Turkey.

We're about to do a write-up on a $100,000 bike, but first we want to show you something for 1/10th the cost that is an absolute work of art. Spin Cycle Industries was started by two friends Eric and Josh. Together they build some very beautiful bikes. The bikes they sell are all custom so when this bike sells it's gone for good. The bike pictured is a customized 1982 Yamaha Virago XV 750 ($13,000). It had about 7,000 miles on it and they added about 800 more during the build. The bike has so many upgrades it would be impossible for me to list them all. Check out their blog for all the details and the full description.
