Summer Olympics 2012 are going faster, further and higher in London and everyone is enjoying the athletic extravaganza.

We all have seen a range of transformer figurines flocking out of China in the past, so if there had to be an abode for transformers, anywhere outside the movie, then it had to be in China. And now like the Angry Birds theme park that we read about just recently, here is news that comes from Jiaxing, located in China’s Zhejiang province, where a transformers park has been constructed, which is all packed with giant replicas of everyone’s favorites including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron (live action figures).
It would have been injustice to these awesome pieces of arts if I had not given them their due place on my blog. Not only esthetically, but environmentally too these recycled PCB sculptures are adorable. Computer geek Steven Rodrig instead of throwing them in landfills chose to turn them into beautiful sculptures. Check out the sea turtle, dragonfly, and shoes made out of old PCBs.
This Mac themed clock will show the same time as any other watch, but looking at this watch itself gives a sort of pleasure that is not usual in everyday life. It can be cited as an example of what we call cool stuff. The entire clock is made from a recycled Apple iBook Clamshell and measures just 13 inches wide by 15 inches high with a quartz clock movement and with a working pendulum, which is an apple mouse actually.
When I first saw this piece of art I was sure this will be having an interesting story behind it, but what I found was something that resembled to reality, but, I guess was not. Anyway I won’t like to rewrite that. All I am concerned about is this steampunk style telephone entirely made from found farmer’s tools. The spade seems to be the main frame over which other parts are fitted perfectly.
A reclaimed bowling ball and lots of marbles, which are no longer of any use, can create a perfect decorative piece for your garden. This marble ball is an excellent example of how discarded things can give you aesthetic pleasure. It will withstand any whether and will not roll down as the base is empty. The maker is available if you want to shop one and you can even order a piece according to your taste of colors and size.
Have a look at these Mario-themed shelves, end tables and clock. They look wonderful and also hints at the love for the game the couple from Germany have. If you are a game lover than I don’t think you are not familiar with those question marks and green pipes. What the couple used to transform their home into Mario world are some recycled garbage cans. That’s sounds cool. These gaming geeks are environmentally conscious too.
