Anyone like sushi? Well, this is kind of the same thing. Okay, it might be a little different.  Artist group After Agri created a device where an opera singer's breath feeds algae, and the algae is in turn fed to the audience. It looks like some kind of device that's straight out of Alien. [via Laughing Squid]

What happens when you mix grandmas and Star Wars? This is what happens. Little crocheted stuffed toys of Star Wars ships like an X Wing or the Millenium Falcon. [via Technabob

Switching map apps on the new iPhone might be the first bad move Apple's ever made. Okay, maybe that's a little drastic. But it's the first bad move they've made in a while. Even Tim Cook doesn't want to use the new maps app. [via The Atlantic]

Everyone knows what campfire smells like — especially once you get a whiff of your clothes after you've left one. Now anyone with a beard can always smell like campfire! Portland-based Antler & Co. has created Campfire Cologne, a little red box full of wood sticks (with matches for burning) used to create a puff of smoke to waft into your hipster beard.
