Bento Book by Rene Lee

(8 years ago)
Modern life is full of portable digital devices, each with it's unique interaction, chip-set, and form factor making it uniquely appropriate for it's own set of use cases. Managing all of these devices can be a pain to say the least when it comes to syncing, transporting, charging, and most importantly sharing and creating content. In response to this, RISD ID student and former frog design intern, Rene Lee, has designed the Bento Book.The Bento Book is a system of devices that work together... kind of like Voltron. The phone, tablet, hard drive, and battery dock into the base of the laptop to essentially form half of it. The phone becomes the track pad, the tablet becomes a touch screen keyboard/input area, somewhat like a Nintendo DS. Content can be surfed on the tablet, and then say you want to modify that content, or interact with it more deeply, you dock the tablet into the screen to continue working with it in a more focussed way. Then you can pop the phone out to take it all on the road.The Bento Book is a nice manifestation of where the current trend of device convergence could go. Check out all the details on Rene's site HERE(more...)

Festival of Ideas for the New City: The Networked City

(8 years ago)
The Networked City: Panel DiscussionMembers: Adam Greenfield, Natalie Jeremijenko, Anthony Townsend, MacKenzie Wark, Moderator: Joseph GrimaQR codes, the little black and white squares that embed links to digital information, are fast becoming part of the advertising landscape.In France, the company QuiVidi, an audience measurement company, uses computer vision technology and marketing specialists to run profiles that captures information about the race, age, and gender of a people and length of time spent viewing digitally embedded advertisements in public spaces.People willingly disclose checking into a public venues in exchange for loyalty discounts a la Foursquare or Facebook.Welcome to the rise of the networked city: cities that, for better or worse, are going to document, survey, continuously count and extrapolate data accumulated by human behavior in urban environments.There was a divide between the panel discussants: between those who championed a more decentralized understanding of existing networks and those who were interested in a more centralized understanding existing networks. As Jeremijenko, whose project The Environment Health Clinic leverages a decentralized approach to networks, suggests: "There [always seems to be] a gap between what one knows and what needs to be done."(more...)

DIY'ers Develop an Affordable CNC Machine in the Phlatprinter

(8 years ago)
New-Jersey-based Mark and Trish Carew are an RC enthusiast couple who make their own radio-controlled model airplanes from scratch. While refining the designs of their planes, the Carews found it tedious to keep recutting shapes with different tweaks, so they sought a better solution. "We researched CNC machines," the Carews write on their website, "and they were all very expensive. The ones that seemed to be in our price range were unable to cut materials large enough."The Can-Do Carews then created the Phlatprinter, an affordable CNC machine that they sold as a DIY kit. Introduced to the RC community, the machine was a hit, and the Carews have now advanced the design into its third iteration, the Phlatprinter 3, which sells for $1,250.(more...)

Malcolm Gladwell Tells the Tale of Dean Hovey, Steve Jobs and the First Computer Mouse

(8 years ago)
If you don't have a digital subscription to The New Yorker, perhaps this will motivate you to get one. For the latest issue, none other than Malcolm Gladwell interviews IDEO co-founder Dean Hovey on the creation of the computer mouse for a pay-only feature article. An excerpt, detailing an early meeting with Steve Jobs as recounted by Hovey:[Jobs] had brought a big plastic bag full of the artifacts of that moment: diagrams scribbled on lined paper, dozens of differently sized plastic mouse shells, a spool of guitar wire, a tiny set of wheels from a toy train set, and the metal lid from a jar of Ralph's preserves. He turned the lid over. It was filled with a waxlike substance, the middle of which had a round indentation, in the shape of a small ball. "It's epoxy casting resin," he said. "You pour it, and then I put Vaseline on a smooth steel ball, and set it in the resin, and it hardens around it." He tucked the steel ball underneath the lid and rolled it around the tabletop. "It's a kind of mouse."(more...)

Corrugated Plastic, Part Four: The Paraslyde Medical Evacuation Device

(8 years ago)
Back in my ambulance days, the first time I'd seen a KED (Kendrick Extrication Device, pictured above) outside of training was when a tractor trailer had gone off the road and crashed into a barrier. The KED is basically an airplane-shaped piece of fabric lined with splints. The EMT clambered up to the cabin of the truck, strapped the KED around the driver like a vest, and we extricated him from the cabin. The idea behind the KED is that after suffering a violent trauma, the patient's torso is essentially a bag full of broken bones, and you don't want bone shards cutting into their organs. You strap a KED around them to minimize any internal jostling while you're extricating them from a tricky space like the cabin of a vehicle.Keeping an accident victim as immobile as possible during transport is a twofold design problem. First you need a stiffening device to serve as an exoskeleton for the patient, and secondly you need to design a way to move everything (which the KED doesn't have, being limited in its application). A gurney has wheels and can be moved by a single orderly: A stretcher has handles on either side and can be carried by two people. A newer device that we didn't have when I was driving the ambulance is something called the Paraslyde, a combination sled/stretcher made from corrugated sheets of plastic 8mm thick.(more...)
