I’m so glad I’m reading Straw Dogs by John Gray right now.
Technology hasn’t civilised us the wants and needs of man, the barbarity is just under the surface.
It won’t take much to erode someone’s principals and realign their moral compass.
Amazing. Actors and actresses have surgical procedures, lose life threatening amounts of weight, put on tens of pounds in weeks for film rolls but when they have the opportunity to pork someone they leave it to the body doubles.
I remember all of these :)
Design that is adaptable, changeable and beautiful is always something that catches my eye. Combined with crafting skill Well Well Designers have developed Pop-Up, a corner lamp delivered in an envelope.
The Pop-up corner light is delivered in an envelope with the electric cord. The lamp is constructed from a sheet of tinted cardboard.The sheet is cut and incised, in such a way to produce a square, triangular or circular module when folded at a 90° angle. Intended for the corner of a room, the lamp creates a luminous shape, interacting with the architecture. It cleverly takes advantage of a space often unexploited in design.

Who I want.
In 2011, Twitter user MT suggested to Detroit Mayor Dave Bing that a statue of Robocop would make a “great ambassador” for Detroit. From that seed of an idea, the “Detroit Needs Robocop” project raised over $60,000 through Kickstarter to actually build a life-sized or larger replica of one of the city’s most famous icons. After two years of planning, scanning, and fabrication, the project’s creators have posted pictures of a ten-foot-tall Robocop prototype, ready to be cast in bronze and set up in the city.
About 2.5 million people die every year in the U.S. alone. Disposing of human remains creates a serious ecological challenge. Traditional burials involve treating a body with formaldehyde and other chemicals then burying it in a wooden casket where it takes years to decompose….
Great idea… Surely liquid nitrogen isn’t cheap or green?
