Madame Tussauds San Francisco is delighted to announce that irreverent Internet sensation Grumpy Cat will be the first ever cat to be immortalised in the attraction's history. In step with her digital celebrity, her figure will be an animatronic with five different movements. "This is truly an honour..." 'said' a distinctly unimpressed Grumpy Cat. "I hate it." Grumpy Cat shot to stardom when her photo was posted on Reddit on September 22, 2012. To dispel suspicions that the image had been Photoshopped, she posted two videos to YouTube. The videos went viral, making her the darling of meme-loving macro-makers everywhere. Grumpy Cat will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds' San Francisco location later this year in typically aloof fashion by Grumpy Cat herself. After a short stay at Madame Tussauds San Francisco, the animatronic will tour the remaining five Madame Tussauds attractions across the US
A dad of two is hoping his bike business takes off after launching these stunning electric tricycles inspired by 1930s aeroplanes. Jeremy Davies designed the incredible three-wheeled machine so he could cart his young children Eve and Sid back and forth to the beach near his home town of Poole, Dorset.

Eco-conscious engineer Jeremy wanted to find a way to get his family to the beach quickly and easily without using a car so came up with the idea of adding a box to the front of his pedal bike

A company has kitted out Mumbai taxis with colourful, symbol fabrics for the interior. Taxis in India, particularly in Mumbai, are not only the most convenient form of transport but have also become an iconic piece of culture. Although a lot of attention is given to each taxi by its driver, to make a taxi stand out from his competitors, very little thought has been given to the fabric used on the seats. The designs that cover the taxi seats are often dull and forgettable. And with the design talent Mumbai has to offer, this shouldn't be the case
