I’m writing this on the kind of Sunday morning that really calls for a strong cup of coffee, and I think this rocket-ship inspired espresso cup would be the ideal vessel. Designed by Craig Kaplan, and 3D printed, unfortunately it’s only really a prototype at the moment, but let’s hope it goes commercial at some point. [Via BoingBoing]

We’re not short on rain here in the UK at the moment, but our rain is rarely as pretty as this Kinetic Rain piece by German firm ART+COM. One thousand two hundred and sixteen computer controlled raindrops are raised and lowered to form moving sculptures – watch the video. [Via Colossal]

Also spotted on Colossal, these stunning photographs of bubbles by Bjoern Ewers – amazing swirls of colour and delicate shapes – check them out.

Sticking with colourful photographs, Fabian Oefner takes wonderful pictures of watercolour paint and ferrofluid (magnetic liquid) – the results are pretty stunning. Follow the link for pictures, more information, and some Q&A with the artist.

Over on Etsy, take a look at these neat steampunk light switch plates from Green Tree Jewelry; wooden cogs and levels make the simple act of flicking a switch into an intricate bit of engineering. I’d love to see a brass and steel version, and maybe a version suitable for British light switches.

And finally, take a look at Sew Nerdy, a self-described ‘Geek Craft Extravaganza’ and celebration of all things nerdy. There are some really great pieces there – well worth a browse.
