Legible Furniture by Tabisso

(8 years ago)
Sure you love your girl, but that's no reason to get her name tatooed on your arm. Not when you can run out and buy letter-shaped seating (and even punctuation-mark lamps) to spell her name out in your living room. Think about it, it just makes sense! And if you break up with Melissa to date Lisa, you won't even have to throw the whole set out.(more...)

When it finally relenquishes its grip you’d be hard pressed to [...]

We Sea a Lot of Garbage

(8 years ago)
This is totally disgusting. Remember the "continent" made out of garbage, double the size of the United States' landmass, floating around in the Pacific? Well, there are five of them scattered around the world, and you need to see this. Here's a sea turtle of the type found off the coast of Argentina:[Image: Damien du Toit, Flickr]One was accidentally captured (in a fishing net we're guessing), here's what was in its stomach:(more...)

Couture Jam: A Lifeline in Singapore's CBD

(8 years ago)
Singapore-based design studio Kult3D creates an installation for Newton Circus, a sustainable-solutions consultancy based in Singapore. The installation is located in the window of the Newton Circus office, located in the heart of Singapore's Central Business District (CBD).To complement Newton Circus' philosophy, Kult3D's critique on consumerism takes the form of Couture Jam, faux luxury life preservers inspired by some of the biggest names in fashion, complete with branded flotation devices. The concept of the life jackets is a satirical look into the future of consumption: fashion in a post-apocalyptic era, an age of excess where you can, quite literally, be branded to death.(more...)

Quentin Vs. Coen

For Hyper-productive Crowdsourcing, Captcha Should Partner with Microtask's Cute Civil Engineer Moles

(8 years ago)
A Finnish company called Microtask has struck upon a novel way to use crowdsourcing to complete extremely dull tasks. It's a simple concept and brilliantly executed: They take something that needs to be digitized—the archives of the National Library of Finland, to use an actual example—and break the scanned documents up into millions of little bits. Then those bits are seeded within a game called Mole Bridge, where players read the bits—which are just images of individual words—and type what they say into a window, thus creating data. Each word they type helps them build a bridge in the game, and the data flows back to Microtask, who puts it all back together into a cohesive document. Redundancy is built in to weed out errors.So far their National Library archives project is working like gangbusters:Volunteers from around the world have completed over 2 million individual tasks, totaling 100,000 minutes, or 1,700 hours of work in just one month. The games are a great way to keep volunteers interested, says Ville Miettinen, CEO of Microtask.Games are one way to go about this, and here's another idea: The company that should really be looking to partner up with Microtask is Captcha. You know how you have to type in a random, gobbledygook "Captcha" word when posting a Craigslist ad, blog comment or similar to prove that you're human? What if that word was an actual word from an actual document that needed to be digitized? Thousands of people are already[..]
