Here is something to start your new year: animals you have never seen before, practical cards for your wallet, true houses of cards and scientific pictures of the tiny.

Part animal, part myth

Cryptozoology has nothing to do with animals and cryptography. This is about animals that may or may not have existed. The site shows great pics of dinosaurs and other animals, some 'possibly' mythical.

wallet gadgets

An interesting little gang has put together a series of mostly practical accessories that can be stored on cards the size of a credit card. Want to carry some toothpicks? What about a guitar plectrum? No? Well, you may want emergency cufflinks or a divot tool. Some of these can be custom-made as well.

houses of cards

Speaking of cards, take a look at these houses of cards - literally. This chap goes all over the world building enormous structures out of playing cards. The best pictures are those pictured with a human so you can judge the scale.

small is beautiful

Some of the most extraordinary and beautiful images from nature come from the microscopic world. This site shows a lot of images of mainly biological subjects as seen from very close indeed. There are some man-made objects that also look quite different when viewed that close.
