    Japanese studio Nendo designs an illusional post-it cube

    cube (6)
    Design sees no boundaries because it’s just as wide an expanse as one’s imagination can be. So, when we set our eyes on this amazing post-it cube/block, we decided to share it with you. Designed by Japan’s Nendo design studio that incorporates post-it notes of various sizes and dimensions on a three sided block that resembles a perfect cube. The optical illusion created by the block is rather delightful and can make it quite the eye-catcher on your office desk. It’s called the ‘Block Memo’ and comprises of one side that has large square-like note, which is flanked by medium sticky rectangles on one side and really small rectangles on the other. I wonder how it would impact the appearance of the cube should one side be completely depleted of sticky notes.

  • Kurv Guitar is like playing the air guitar with actual sound

    The Kurv Guitar is basically a stringless electric guitar. While it does well to cut the volume of space that a real guitar takes as well as the calluses caused by tabbing strings, this one also contributes in the learning of a guitar. All you need to do is work on your touch, gesture control and motion, with precision. The digital plectrum and touchpad with eight distinct touch-points on your palm basically make up the Kurv Guitar. The harder you strum the louder the sound of the struck chord. You can connect it with your smartphone via Bluetooth. The touch-sensitive touchpad can be used to play up to 60 hit songs that come with the smartphone app.

    This iPhone 7 concept sees off the 3.5 mm jack

    While we’re contemplating what features the iPhone 7 could bring and drop, designer Eric Huismann has visualized one concept that completely does away with the 3.5 mm jack. Instead, he hopes for a world where iPhone users will be entertained wirelessly. The main reason for this is the fact that the future iPhones could be really slim. Wireless headsets that connect over Bluetooth or Lightning ports seem to be quite a possibility. He’s also added his touch to the classical Home button. The all new button introduces a 3D touch function. Keeping in trend with other brands, the artist has also predicted the coming of a smaller, 4-inch device that keeps the price conscious and size conscious folks satisfied.

    Pedal-powered personal pods brings fitness and clean travel to NZ

    Called the Shweeb, this cool idea of transport from New Zealand is grabbing eyeballs and the attention of people across the globe. The idea of a personal transportation pod may be rather fascinating but the fact that it can take you distances by simply employing pedal power is even more attractive as a proposition. The designers who developed the Shweeb are looking at this as an environment-friendly mode of transport. By leveraging a monorail system to guide users along a path, the pod is powered by the rider’s ability to pedal across distances. Thanks to the special chain system, the pod takes only half the energy required on a bicycle to travel. The designers have taken a step ahead and linked Shweebs to enhance performance and cut down on the impact of air resistance.

    Chicago sculpture is built from 3k hand blown orbs

    Sculpture In Chicago 1
    The John Hancock Centre in Chicago received a new addition in its midst and there’s so much to take in from what you can see. Artist Wolfgang Buttress has completed the sculpture called Lucent that looms above the lobby area. The name of the sculpture has been derived from Latin Lucere (which means, ‘to shine’). As many may decipher, the structure resembles a star map and draws on celestial mapping research by astrophysicist Dr Daniel Bayliss at the Australian National University. The 4-meter diameter of the hemisphere is perforated with over 3000 holes that represent stars. It represents stars that are visible to the naked eye from the Earth’s Northern hemisphere. That’s not all, the artist has also embedded fiber-optic cables that emerge from the nodes, emitting a soothing light. The real magic is created by the hand-blown glass orbs that are attached to the nodes.
