DAYDREAM: a very clever and actually quite simple installation. Seems like a great start, but it looks more like an exploration of a concept than a complete work of art that connects with people.
The YotaPhone is an android phone with two displays: a regular smartphone display on one side, and a slightly curved e-ink display on the other. The implication on power consumption and the interactions it enables are actually pretty interesting. I think I want one.
This is Baxter’s second composition for the violin. It’s based on the legend of Sleepy Hollow. This is from violin lesson #10.
I guess this is what you do with incredibly high-end projectors and 3D mapping tools and a couple of robot arms and a warehouse space and a LOT of free time. Pretty much worth it, I think.
Self assembly has some very interesting implications in science and manufacturing, but I think I am most excited about the possibilities in architecture and art. In some ways it’s like the automation of conceptual art: the idea is actually one that executes itself. Self assembling sculpture? self assembling paintings? Self assembling collage?
Caucasian men over 65 years old wearing stone washed jeans, white gym socks, and moccasins are up 23% over the same time last year.

I feel like I’ve been preparing for this image all my life.
The internet is over, everyone can go home
It’s just as beautiful as I always imagined.
My life is complete.
Life is over as we know it
This is such a great and helpful blog post for Marissa to share with us. It helps me, because now I know never to take a job at Yahoo. The CEO gets into the low-level details of design, makes the team work over the weekend, inflates her two-day contribution and then minimizes the subsequent weeks of work that the design team did, encourages “design by survey”, and ultimately ends up with a bland and lifeless logo. Thanks, Marissa!

At just almost $800, this dual-boot linux/Android phone is really trying to be a pocket computer that can transition to your desktop when needed. I assume it’ll be about 30 lbs, run at a constant 200 degrees, and have a battery life of about 35 minutes, but I want one anyway.
Mugi Yamamoto’s portable printer eats its way down a printer stack like a cartoon termite. By having the printer chew through it’s resources in this way the consumption of resources is somehow highlighted. I wish there was a way to make the ink more visible as well.
