This Stag Beetle Kit by Assembli is freaking awesome! The beetle itself is a work of art but their packaging is on point too. I want one to put up on my wall. Too bad Christmas has passed, otherwise it would have gone on my wish list.
The Frisk Company has partnered with Takashi Murakami to create these awesome mini sculptures that freshen your mouth at the same time! Watch the video about the project below!
I guess it's time to save up for a PS4...
I don't even know where to start. I've been following WO3A for quite some time and hope to own a toy of theirs in the near future. I haven't made a purchase yet mostly because I don't have the funds to buy one of their amazing toys.
It is definitely getting way more difficult especially with the new release of the Bravest Warriors toys. I mean, just look at them! Beautifully made! You can pre-order them at Bambalandstore May 21st, mark your calendars!
Recently I've returned to using 2mm mechanical pencils to get a more organic feel in my sketches. I love the sharp point of a 0.5 mm pencil, but it was just too rigid for me.
But me being me, I search near and far for the writing utensil best suited for me. This also means that form and function must be on the same level. In the case of my everyday carry pen, I searched for about 2 years before landing happily on the Karas Kustoms Retrakt with a Parker Pen fine ball point tip refill. The aesthetics of the pen are beautiful and the function of the Parker refill suit my writing and sketching needs perfectly.
I'm undergoing the same process at the moment with my pencil. Currently I'm using a Staedtler 2mm pencil and functionality wise, it works fine. The aesthetics portion however, are just so so in my opinion. But as always, Kickstarter seems to save the day. I discovered the Penxo today and immediately backed the project! It is such a beautiful and simple writing utensil an the perfect mix of beauty and utility. I just hope that when I receive my very own Penxo, it will hold up to it's presumed glory.
It's Friday! If you have no plans for the weekend, maybe it's time to create a few industrial pipe stools for your home. Love Grows Wild has a great DIY tutorial on how to build these awesome stools, so hurry and gather your supplied to build these before the weekend passes you by.
If you're looking for a fun weekend project or a fun DIY gift for someone, this is definitely a fun project to pick up.
Using mobile devices to make payments will be inevitable, thus all the different companies trying to figure out how to do this correctly especially the peer to peer aspect. Paypal and Venmo are the ones that come to mind. Square cash is a new service created by Square that uses the "$" tag with a handle you create in order go get paid. Watch the video to see how they envision this to work.
Let me put it this way, it'll make payments that much easier at conventions when a customer doesn't have cash or credit card on hand to pay for goods, but has their phone.
Great short interview of Sucklord in his studio by Joey Garfield. I love how Sucklord finishes a thought and immediately continues to sand whatever he's working on.
What a great way to upcycle unused materials! Rather than throwing the material away or recycling by breaking it down through processes to create other materials, Katamaku has taken the used canvas material as is and re-purposed it into entirely new products. SMART!
Katamaku is a new series of products that utilize unused parts of the membrane material that were to be thrown away. They were made into various cases and bags for everyday use. The products use industrial membrane fabric, such as used for the roof of Tokyo Dome. One aim of the designers is that people will appreciate the beauty in materials that are not usually seen up close.

MATHEMATICIANS! Heed my words! Coordimate is coming!!!
I was never a math wiz back in highschool, but i do remember having to draw graphs over and over and over and over.... I'm pretty sure there are a lot of you who remember doing this. But wasting precious time drawing Cartesian graphs only to have them come out lop sided was very frustrating. Coordimate helps you with that problem with a push of a button, literally.
