Oct 27 2010

Ever have one of those weeks where you feel like you need to more carefully plan your free time so you’re not wasting it as much?

*Luggage* *Design*
Naoki Kawamoto: Orishiki Suitcase
I kinda already love derezzed real world objects but they’re even better when they have some sort of loose functional reason for that look.

*History* *Urban Planning*
1916 Plan for NYC Proposed Fusing Brooklyn and Manhattan, Building New Islands
Man, what do you suppose the alternate universe where they actually did this is like?

*DIY Tech* *Robots*

Ugh I told mom not to throw away all those giant robot plans I drew when I was six but she wouldn’t believe me that they’d come in handy someday.

Not as good as F**k You but still worth listening to.

*Digital Art* *Makeup*
Showtime: Janet Zweig, Lipstick Enigma
I’ve featured a lot of weird art projects on here but I think this may be my absolute favorite. Just to give you an idea: “The sculpture is made of 1200 resin lipsticks powered by 1200 stepper motors, contolled by 60 circuit boards.”

*Surveillance* *Video*
How to Defeat Big Brother
The best Ignite talk I’ve seen this year.

*Arts* *Crafts*

This is kinda fantastic on a lot of levels.
