This is a pretty clever little idea from inhabitat.com. How to make good use of the result of beer drinking at outdoor festivals. Why not make a little nutrient rich compost?
A very cool design post from the folks at Office Snap Shots. Fresh off their wonderful Google Tel Aviv office post, they’ve got another great Google project in Israel to display. This time, it is Google’s Haifa offices which were designed by Setter Architects. The Google offices are located in Haifa’s Matam High-Tech Park and were inspired by four themes of Haifa: The Sea, Port, Nature (specifically Mount Carmel) and Neighborhoods. The building is shaped with four distinct wings, with one theme for each wing. More here.
The wonderful story of how two guys got together to build a better prosthetic hand. As the story says, when two people get together, anything is possible. Wonderful.
“Neither Richard Van As or Ivan Owen have any experience with prosthetics. In fact, the two men have never even met. But they’ve designed a simple new mechanical hand that could be cheap enough to spread around the world.”
There is enough in this description and the comments to figure out what is going on here. A very cool effect.
