World's smallest cup of coffee: ground from a single bean using a nail file

From The Verge:

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

The video above from artist and designer Lucas Zanotto shows a cup being made from just a single coffee bean.

The bean is ground up using a nail file, the water is boiled with a tea light candle, and it's then poured into a simple filter, just like you'd do at home — if you were 15 inches tall.

It's an advertisement for the Finnish coffee and cocoa company Paulig, but that doesn't stop it from being charming.

With the Human Slingshot, you and three friends can fling each other around the inside of a giant stretchable band like a bouncing pinball.

Gameplay is simple but amazingly fun.

In a synchronized pattern, players run toward each other and into the walls of the giant band, creating the momentum necessary to catapult the other players across the confines of the slingshot.

The Human Slingshot is made from a proprietary blend of polyester and spandex that is lightweight, durable, comfortable, UV-resistant, and provides the perfect amount of elasticity.
