Satellites from the ground

by Nathan Yau

There is a 16-by-16 mile grid of big X’s in the Sonoran Desert that were used to calibrate spy satellites in the 1960s. They’re no longer in use, but Julie Anand and Damon Sauer have been studying the marks and overlaying the paths of publicly-known satellites that are detected during the time of a photograph.

Cómo vender un coche de segunda mano

by Troy

como-vender-coche-seguna-mano

Concretamente, vamos a explicar cómo vender un viejo Suzuki Vitara del 96.

El mejor truco es realizar un pequeño vídeo en el que se puedan apreciar todas las virtudes del vehículo, mientras intentamos minimizar esos defectillos típicos en un coche de más de 20 años. Es recomendable acompañar las imágenes con un poco de música épica.

Es lo que ha hecho el señor Eugene Romanovsky con resultados muy positivos.

These are the Most Incredible Photos Shot by NASA’s Cassini Probe

NASA’s New Horizons probe dazzled the world with a detailed photo of Pluto today, but another probe has been beaming back stunning shots of space for over a decade already. The Cassini space probe has captured its fair share of eye-popping photos since launching in 1997 and arriving in Saturn’s orbit in 2004.

I cannot believe these are photos. these are INSANE!!!

Space looks really fake. This is one of the ways you can tell real space photos; they tend to look obviously-fake.

Say hello to this shape-shifting chandelier. The inMOOV Adjustable movable lamp by Studio Lieven is a marine-life inspired ornate origami lighting that can be adjusted to take on different avatars, just with a slight push!

It was a no-brainer that the Art4leg 3D printed prosthetic by Tomas Vacek would make it to this list. I kind of like it more than the leg I already have! Plus, the leg’s pattern is designed to look pretty while staying light and taking a lot of vertical stress.

The Only Clock by Vadim Kibardin is rather simple. It combines the beauty of a frame with the functionality of the clock. Not only can you read the time in a simple format, you can even look through the clock at the wonderful cityscape!

If 3D printing is revolutionizing manufacturing, the Happaratus sculpture tool by Morten Grønning is rapidly changing model-making. Imagine being able to sculpt with your fingers. That’s what the Happaratus does. Small grinding and sanding machines strap to your fingers, allowing you to sculpt unbelievably complex and organic surfaces by just running your fingers across a material.

You don’t require much therapy at the Manshausen Wellness Spa by Snorre Stinessen. It cantilevers over a precipice, giving you an unconditionally beautiful look at the vast and calming sea. That’s pretty much all the therapy you’d need!

Forget what you knew about thermometers. This Non Contact Thermometer by Tobia Repossi can actually measure your body temperature accurately to 1/10th of a degree… without even touching you!

This sheet-metal ‘blanket’ on the Noor Island Park by 3deluxe architecture combines intricate Arabian ornamentation along with parametric surfacing. The result? A beautiful, organic, hypnotic piece of architecture!

The Raven Kick scooter by Ignas Survila may look familiar. That’s because we wrote about it right here after it won the Red Dot! Now armed with an A’ Design Award, this ultra-portable scooter is ready to set your streets on fire!

The Espire Full Face Gas Mask by Carlos Schreib is exactly what safety masks should look like. Not only does it purify the air going into your nose and mouth, it even guards your eyes from smoke, dust, and harmful chemicals. What’s more, it cleverly creates a wall between the breathing zone and the viewing zone so you don’t have to worry about your visor fogging up with your breath!

Artist Carson Davis Brown Creates In-Store Installations Without Permission

by dmitry

Carson Davis Brown’s “Mass” project puts site-specific, color-based installations in big box stores and other “places of mass” without permission. These visual disruptions take otherwise disparate objects and groups them into temporary sculptures. The project has taken the artist to stores across the U.S. A primary charge for the project is to make passers-by more aware of their environment by recontextualizing the items around them.

More info: Mass Project (h/t: hifructose)

“Mass is a site specific installation project about creating visual disruptions in places of mass (to date: big-box stores, super-centers, etcetera.). At an intersection between Street Art and Land Art, installations are made without permission, using found materials within the retail landscape. The works are made, photographed, then left to be experienced by passersby and ultimately dissembled by location staff. Mass works are also initially exhibited in a consumer landscape. Printed, framed and exhibited in-stores all without permission.”

Ikea Had A Great Reaction To Balenciaga Making A $2,145 Version Of Its 99-Cent Blue Bag

by dmitry

IKEA have issued a hilarious advert for its $0.99 shopping bag so its customers can rest assured they’ve bought the real deal. The amusing ad is in response to French luxury fashion house Balenciaga’s new handbag which looks suspiciously similar to the iconic Ikea FRAKTA bag.

h/t: adweek, thesun

This was too much comedy for Ikea to process silently. In Sweden, at the urging of its agency partner Acne, Ikea (via in-house shop Ikea Creative Shop) whipped up a print ad and a social post comically explaining to readers how to tell the difference between Balenciaga’s bag and Ikea’s.

The print ad reads:

How to identify an original Ikea Frakta bag
1) Shake it. If it rustles, it’s the real deal.
2) Multifunctional. It can carry hockey gear, bricks, and even water.
3) Throw it in the dirt. A true Frakta is simply rinsed off with a garden hose when dirty.
4) Fold it. Are you able to fold it to the size of a small purse? If the answer is yes, congratulations.
5) Look inside. The original has an authentic Ikea tag.
6) Price tag. Only $0.99.

They added: “Nothing beats the versatility of a great big blue bag!”
