Take a digital screen like the iPad, write some code to have it display an image based on it’s position, then shot a long exposure image or video to make for some fun stop-action light animation. Learn more about the project from creators at BergLondon.

“TED’s Chris Anderson says the rise of web video is driving a worldwide phenomenon he calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation — a self-fueling cycle of learning that could be as significant as the invention of print. But to tap into its power, organizations will need to embrace radical openness. And for TED, it means the dawn of a whole new chapter …”
“According to the designers, easterners commonly believe that small changes of an individual person or object can make big impact on the larger society, thus,
leading to a modest and totalitarian culture. this social tendency described as a ’ripple effect’ was translated here into tea ceremony table.
Ripples are created on the top water layer of the table surface everytime the tea cup and saucer are moved by the user. through this project, seo and chung wanted to emphasize the importance of considering cultural mentality and context as a backdrop to their work.”

I’ve been using the Fliqlo clock screensaver for quite some time and must say it’s my favorite. Following along the same aesthetics as Fliqlo are 3 other great visual screensavers. Dropclock has dropping numbers into liquid, Minnow puts a pond into your screen, and Wordclock expresses the time in words within a sentence.
A fork and spoon is simply an extension in your hands and fingers… so why not make utensils representing hands like the fun spoon and fork above! I wonder what a knife would be though… a karate chop hand… and what would chopsticks be… fingers? Ha, buy these at matsubai below.
Interesting project to start kids early in the thinking process in saving for charity! Very cool and needed.
“The power of piggy:
We believe that this simple product, Piggy, can truly make the world a better and more compassionate place.
Piggy helps teach kids about charitable giving, with the hopes of inspiring new generations of caring, sharing, philanthropic citizens.
With 12,000 children born each day in the US, imagine the social impact if just a fraction of them learned powerful lessons
of gratefulness and kindness to others.”

“In the sought-after London boroughs of Chelsea and Islington, inner city birds often have to claim their nesting space quickly! However, birds that are open to changing their wild ways might be convinced to try out the innovative bird-housing concept developed by the artists at London Fieldworks. The “Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven” opened recently as part of the Secret Garden Project by UP Projects and hopes to develop into a haven of biodiversity and create a new public awareness of the ecological and cultural value of urban green spaces.
With over 250 bird and bug boxes available in the stunning sculptural art installation, birds can choose from a range of shapes and sizes of boxes to use for shelter, nesting or feeding spaces. The diverse complex of bird boxes were designed to reflect the architecture in the nearby Georgian terraces and 1960s flats that surround the park in Duncan Terrace Gardens and Cremorne Gardens. We love the strangely organic forms that are created by stacking these distinct modular box shapes together and are happy to hear that they have been woven together using elastic bands, which means the structure can change over time as the tree grows.
Hehe, so if your struggling to pick a typeface and don’t have a graphic designer to help you out, here’s a fun little infographic that might save you some thinking time in choosing a font.
I’d really like an embossed large print of these posters… what a great project! Somewhat reminds me of Back To the Future.
