Nie

Advertise here with BSAThis is a girl in fetal position. Nude. But something breaks the harmony excess: There are six simple pine trees growing on the girl, on the mountain that her back shapes. This is Nie. Or at least, one of her drawings. “I like the word Forest to name Loneliness” she says. Her work flows in [...]

Primal Instincts Lead to Smaller Devices?

(8 years ago)
It's too bigI'll need to see more evidence before I buy this, but a Humans Invent article by Nigel Brown avers that "Caveman instincts make you crave tiny gadgets." Brown cites a psychologist by the name of Dr. Colin Gill, who believes that...The association with using smaller and more functional tools dates back to when man first evolved from apes. "We are dealing with, potentially, a fundamental psychological aspect of our evolution," Gill explains. "If we look at man's evolution, in most cultures men never carry bags. Men prefer to put things in their pockets, and not have any excess baggage. Some believe that this goes back to when we were hunter gatherers and men didn't want to carry bulky equipment about."We wanted things to be small and functional, something easy that could be hung from a belt, so we could concentrate on hunting antelopes. Therefore men are pre-conditioned to want things smaller, and easily portable. So it is men in particular who drive this design emphasis for things to be smaller."I'm not sure it's caveman instincts so much as pure common sense that makes us want smaller objects. If I have a choice between carrying a brick-like cell phone with a suitcase battery plus a camera plus a Walkman plus a day planner plus a sketchbook plus a Gameboy, versus carrying just an iPhone, I think the better solution is obvious without having to grunt my way through it.

Ken Block's Gymkhana Four

(8 years ago)
Gymkhana, a "sport" made mainstream by professional rally driver Ken Block, entails driving obscenely fast through the most absurd obstacle course imaginable. In the case of the mindgasmic Gymkhana Four, which was released on Tuesday, this includes knocking over a gorilla on a ladder, dodging synchronized forklifts, and surviving an attack by Jaws, all on the Universal Studios backlot. It also happens to be full of blatant advertising for just about everything, but that's besides the point. Enjoy.(more...)

Hug patches are efficient, heat tolerable, and most importantly painless. Hug's vaccination system creates a stress free, informed experience for parent and child so they enjoy the intimate lifesaving moment together.I took emerging medical technology out of the laboratory and designed a system for its distribution both in the USA and throughout the world as aid. Microneedle technology is currently being developed as an alternative to administering vaccinations through injection. However, the current state of the technology in the laboratory is cold and unusable in the real world. With this technology, I designed a system of touch points that redefine the vaccination experience for all stakeholders.First, I conducted research to explore the problem and gather data from the stakeholders. Then I translated my data from research into actionable insights that fueled the development process. To develop the Hug system I created a brand, a series of products, and two unique services and distribution systems (one[..]

Would You Kickstart a Pet? Alex Andon Wants to Know

(8 years ago)
Alex Andon started experimenting with new ways to bring sea jellies into peoples' abodes—humble and otherwise—when he was laid off in 2009. Early press (including not one but two mentions in the paper of record in March 2009) presaged the success of the "Desktop Jellyfish Tank," which has been funded some twenty times over during the first third of Andon's campaign (which runs until September 12).Andon, who studied Marine Biology as an undergraduate at Duke, spent the past two years developing bespoke jellyfish solutions for commercial and private clients, eventually arriving at a $350 desktop model for the Medusozoa-inclined Middle American consumer.Wikipedia never fails to inform and delight:A kreisel tank is a circular aquarium designed to hold delicate animals such as jellyfish. These aquariums provide slow, circular water flow with a bare minimum of interior hardware, to prevent delicate animals from becoming injured by pumps or the tank itself. Originally a German design (kreisel means spinning top), the tank has no sharp corners, and keeps the housed animals away from the plumbing. Water moving into the tank gives a gentle flow that keeps the inhabitants suspended, and water leaving the tank is covered by a delicate screen that prevents the inhabitants from getting stuck.The pitch after the jump:(more...)

Ernie Eun Sang Lee's Perm Chair Process

(8 years ago)
As an example of the current trend for design schools to work with technology innovators, this past year RISD worked with recyclable glass/thermoplastic composite Twintex manufacturer Owens Corning. The resulting exhibition, Recyclable Composites, was on display during the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York.Ernie Eun Sang Lee, one of the twelve students in the RISD class, produced the Perm Chair as his creation. The chair "started from the simple, honest response to the material," in this case the hairdo of King Louis XV of France. What started off as a pile of "hair" was hardened into a rigid structure through heating. Lee was kind enough to share a behind-the-scenes look at the process of the Perm Chair. And—as you can see in the video—yes, he actually knit this entire chair.(more...)
