IKEA hacks are really popular—in the past we’ve looked at how the modular furniture can be hacked to suit tiny apartments, one of our editors has come up with some hacks of her own, and specialty sellers on Etsy sell their own kits to modify all manner of flat-pack pieces. And IKEA is thoroughly aware of this trend—they’ve even tried to stop people from profiting from it. And now, according to Gizmodo, the furniture giant is looking to jump on the bandwagon and produce its own line of hack kits.

Nendo creates timber-like furnishings out of Alcantara artificial suede

Don’t be fooled by the swirling wood grain-like textures—these beautiful gray-toned furnishings are actually made from Alcantara artificial suede. Prolific Japanese design studio Nendo created these timber-like materials by layering different colored textiles, rolling them into a “log” shape, and finally slicing the Alcantara layers into timber-like planks. The studio used the sturdy material, selected for its resistance to fraying, to construct a table and several chairs. Nendo showcased these furniture pieces at the ‘Alcantara, Technology of Dreams’ exhibition, which runs until May 31 at Milan’s Palazzo Reale.

New reports indicate that the California pipeline that spilled thousands of gallons of oil into the Pacific Ocean on May 19th is the only pipeline of its kind in the United States without an auto shut-off valve. Several decades ago, the original owner of the Plains All American Pipeline argued in a Santa Barbara County court that since the pipeline is part of an interstate network and federal regulators are not required to have an auto shut off valve, they should also be exempt. They won the argument and the pipeline hasn’t had an auto shut-off valve since.

The UK’s poop-powered bus has set a speed record for a regular service bus with a top speed of 76.8 miles per hour (123.5kph). The vehicle is called the ‘Bus Hound’ (a tongue-in-cheek homage to supersonic Bloodhound SSC) and it’s powered by biomethane derived from cow manure. Operated by Reading Buses, the Bus Hound is decorated with a black and white skin reminiscent of the Friesian cows used for milk production around Britain, and it’s said to sound like a Vulcan bomber.
