275x250.jpg A group of Dutch artists have fulfilled the dreams of DIY-haters everywhere…  by creating a room which can be redecorated at the flick of a switch, almost.

Going by the name of Mr Beam, the artists created a plain white room and then set up two projectors which were used to 'decorate' the room with light.

They took two months programing the setup to create the nine different rooms in various styles with things ranging from psychedelic wallpaper to a leather sofa.

But before you get your hopes up that this is the future of decorating, it's worth remembering that you really would become part of the sofa if you sat down.

275x250.jpg A designer has created a bizarre cycle which is powered solely by two screwdrivers and can carry the rider at speed of around 20mph - as long as they don't mind being uncomfortable.

Dubbed The EX, the odd skeleton contraption sees daredevil riders lie close to the ground with their hands on two triggers above the front wheels.

From there they can control the two 18-volt Bosch screwdrivers which act as the engines on the bike and steer by leaning their weight on specially developed joints.

Designer Nils Ferber says the bike cost just £900 to produce and is considerably more environmentally friendly than most other vehicles… and haw many of them can be used to put up a shelf.
