Longer-Lasting Cash

(8 years ago)
The simpleminded prediction was always that the rise of credit cards, and services like PayPal, would eliminate cash. But a cashless society is like the Paperless Office—it just ain't gonna happen. And now the Times reports an interesting trend: These days cash—paper bills, not the concept—now physically lasts longer.Everyone knows that U.S. cash is already printed on durable paper. It's cotton-based stuff that's impregnated with either polyvinyl alcohol or some type of gelatin; the exact recipe is, unsurprisingly, a secret. But as the Times points out, the increased longevity of paper bills is due not to advances in paper technology, but advances in scanning technology (in addition to less usage):Thanks to technological advances, the average dollar bill now circulates for 40 months, up from 18 months two decades ago, according to Federal Reserve estimates.Banks regularly send stacks of old notes to the Fed, which replaces the damaged ones. Until recently, notes were simply stacked facedown and destroyed, as were dog-eared notes, because the Fed's scanning equipment could not distinguish between creases and tears. Now it can. In 1989, the Fed replaced 46 percent of returned dollar bills. Last year it replaced 21 percent. The rest of the notes were returned to circulation where they may lead longer lives because they are being used less often.Unfortunately, my own personal cash does not seem to last as long now as it used to. But that's largely due to my[..]

Check out this early 17th-Century Huanghuali travelling bookcase, above, two- and three-tier picnic boxes, below, and this tapered cabinet that can be stacked on matching shelves, bottom. (more...)

Simulating Disaster

(8 years ago)
I was first exposed to Navy damage control training in an episode of "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" (don't judge) a decade ago. In the episode, teams had to seal leaking water pipes in a flooding mock-up of the interior of a naval ship. I find the idea of special buildings that realistically and physically simulate disasters fascinating.These simulators are in the same vein as something you might find at Universal Studios. For example, the earthquake simulator that tears apart the subway station or the "Backdraft" movie simulator with explosions and crashing catwalks.(more...)

Mila Kunis and JT flirt for Elle Mag (8 photos)

(8 years ago)
Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis sat down with Elle to promote their upcoming movie “Friends with Benefits.” The film will be out in theaters July 22. Here are some highlights the co-stars had with the Elle Interview:ELLE: Playing friends with benefits, what was your costar most self-conscious about while shooting the nude scenes?MK: [To Justin] You’ve got a fine ass. I was self-conscious about a lot of things. Show me one girl who isn’t.JT: I’ll be honest and say, like, I’m still trying to get into the editing room and cut down on my ass time. I’m like, “Oh my God, my mom’s gonna see that!”ELLE: “Friends with benefits”: a good idea or a bad idea?JT: [Smiles] It is such a good idea—until it’s a bad idea.MK: I concur. Ultimately, it ends when someone wants to go and get serious with somebody. More times than not, a person catches feelings and somebody gets hurt.ELLE: Earth to Justin… Perfect first date?JT: Something more simple than extravagant. Scrabble.MK: Monopoly.JT: Scrabble’s a good date. If she can’t spell, I don’t want to hangout with her. So that’s a good test.MK: I can’t spell at all. [To Justin] Now we’ll never be friends.

Aandeboom's "P-Tree" Takes Piss Out of Festivalgoers (in a manner of speaking)

(8 years ago)
Based on the popularity of the "P-TREE" at Denmark's Roskilde Festival, Dutch design studio Aandeboom is deeming their pilot program (Petri dish?) a success. The company "produced 50 P-TREES in the typical Roskilde Orange color, placed in 2 different spots near the main stage," to the delight (and utility) of "more than 100,000 visitors." The P-TREE is a temporary tree-friendly urinal that can be fixed on every tree using straps and lashings. The P-tree gives a feeling of freedom during peeing. It is the same as peeing into the wild. The hoses from the urinal can be combined and connected on a waste pipe with container. The P-tree is very accessible for festivals, public gardens, events, etc. P-tree and Lashings are available in different RAL-colors.The summer music festival setting is, of course, the most appropriate place for the "P-TREE"—its natural habitat, one might say. And lest we miss the forest for the trees (or the urinal for the pee): "By using the P-TREE the festivals problem with public peeing was significant reduced."Teaser video and behind-the-scenes photos (or something like that) after the jump:(more...)

Core77 Photo Gallery: RCA Design Interactions Show 2011

(8 years ago)
Photography by Sam Dunne for Core77Sweating robots, human flesh neo-natal incubators and a happy man who no longer sits down: just some of the highlights we caught at this year's Royal College of Art Design Interactions graduate show in London. The course led by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby showcased a diverse range of high and lo-tech thought provoking design fictions, and all kinds of awesome future-thinking concepts. Embracing the impact of our increased connectivity and mobile lifestyle, projects explored notions such as: How will we turn off and relax in an over-connected age? What if androids had birthdays? Could renewable energy be funded by extreme tourism? Could city smog become valuable? What if companies were striving to create human happiness rather than profit? And our favorite, can I legally clone Marilyn Monroe's left breast?Find out, and see more highlights in our photo gallery! (more...)
