Five things to do today: 9 December

Yesterday’s future - found furniture - Mexican wrestlers - mosaic Mario - wakeboard Venice

Yesterday’s future
‘As a child, I truly believed that at this point in my life I would be living in a space-dome community with a flying car and a robot maid.’ Browse 45 vintage illustrations of a space age tomorrow.

Found furniture
Design Miami 08: Lebanese designers Huda Baroudi and Maria Hibri of Bokja presented a collection of found furniture pieces upholstered in vintage Middle Eastern fabrics at Design Miami last week. Check out the results over at Dezeen.

Mexican wrestlers
Glamorous transvestites tackle midgets in Ewok masks as Mexico’s Luche Libre wrestlers storm London’s Roundhouse. It’s the final night tonight - doors open 7pm and tacos are three for £5.

Mosaic Mario
‘A product of three revisions and a total of two and a half semesters of work. The final revision took a whopping two months of work by the CIS Student Association at the University of the Fraser Valley.’ What did these students spend so much energy creating? It’s obvious, really: a 17,000 push-pin mosaic of Mario, the computer-game hero.

Wakeboard Venice
Take advantage of the flooding in Venice by wakeboarding across St Mark’s Square. Video of the moment a new mode of tourism was invented.
