New Infographic – Top 10 Countries and What They Search For

(8 years ago)
The folks @ TechKing released a new infographic and it’s pretty good! It’s always interesting to see what are the top searches in different countries, as they usually reveal mainstream trends. My personal favorite comes from Russia (with love): “how to eat sushi” is number 3 in top raising searches!

Interview with Steven Sasson, inventor of the digital camera

(8 years ago)
Brooklynite and electrical engineer Steven J. Sasson had an interesting problem posed to him in 1975 by Eastman Kodak: Was it possible to make a film-less camera that could capture images electronically?Three years of hard work later Sasson, along with his Kodak supervisor Gareth A. Lloyd, was issued a patent. It would be many years yet before companies like Sony and Panasonic would pick up the digital ball and run with it, and companies like Canon and Nikon would stop wishing this bothersome new technology would go away, but Sasson had invented the first digital camera. His contribution to the current state of the world is incalculable; eBay, fashion photography, journalism and a host of other industries would not exist in their current forms if not for Sasson's work.(more...)

Curiosity Club Q+A with Kurt Mottweiler

(8 years ago)
With the next Curiosity Club less than a week a way, we came up with a few queries for our speaker, Kurt Mottweiler, to get an insight in to his work. Kurt meticulously designs and builds traditional, film-based cameras that range from the simplest, lensless, wooden cameras to fully computer-controlled, rotating panoramic cameras.Kurt will be speaking next Tuesday, April 19th at the Hand-Eye Supply store in Portland at 6PM.You work in both wood and metal to create your P.90 Pinhole Cameras. Are there any tools you find indispensable in your work?I work with a range of tools and equipment much of which would be familiar to a typical woodworker or machinist and some of it to a mad scientist. But similar to the craft of luthery in which I worked, there are a wide variety of special tools, machines and equipment involved in craft-based camera making. Perhaps my favorite is the Swiss-made, Aciera F3 compound milling machine. I'm also slowly building a small CNC machine. I'll show images of a few others during the presentation.Cameras have a chronological component in that they record a moment in time. Does that interest you and how does it affect your work?(more...)

Things That Look Like Other Things: Pratonzolo Desktop Pen & Card Holder

(8 years ago)
"Pratonzolo" is a playful take on a desktop organization solution for writing utensils and business cards, created by Max Battaglia of Givingshape and BBM's Matteo Mocchi (who had a hand in this mysterious Salone preview) for Stylemylife.The design is pretty self-explanatory, though the fineness of the bristles remind me of a (inverted) brush. Now, if only someone could design one of these with actual grass... like this Flotspotted mini-radio.(more...)

Duty-Free Takes to the Skies: The Mile High Shopping Club

(8 years ago)
In this age of capitalism, it seems if you build something big enough somebody will put a store in it.Korean Air has recently announced they'll be installing duty free shops in their forthcoming Airbus A380 jumbo jets. The shops were apparently designed at least in part by cosmetics company L'Oréal's design department, and while details are light, it appears from the photo that they'll incorporate a pivoting countertop/display unit that presumably stows away during take-off and landing. And as you can see in the video below, to prevent breakage during turbulence, all of booze bottles will be kitted out with magnets on the bottom, holding them fast to metal shelves.via flight global(more...)
