Meet A Master Of The Dying Art Of Hand-Drawn Type

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

This is beautiful hand drawn type! This is something that is lacking in the digital type world though hopefully we get this humbleness and humaness in the art and craft of type back into it soon.

“Tracing the rounded lines of cursive on worksheets was a fundamental part of exercise in grade school–one that may soon become obsolete, as pen and paper are replaced by keyboards and screens. Job Wouters (a.k.a. Letman), a graphic designer based in Amsterdam, is on a one-man mission to sustain the dying medium of hand lettering, churning out meticulously executed forms that pay tribute to the versatility and beauty of good penmanship.”

Boaz Almog “levitates” a superconductor

Friday, July 6th, 2012

How can a super-thin 3-inch disk levitate something 70,000 times its own weight? In a riveting demonstration, Boaz Almog shows how a phenomenon known as quantum locking allows a superconductor disk to float over a magnetic rail — completely frictionlessly and with zero energy loss. Experiment: Prof. Guy Deutscher, Mishael Azoulay, Boaz Almog, of the High Tc Superconductivity Group, School of Physics and Astronomy, Tel Aviv University.

Boaz Almog uses quantum physics to levitate and trap objects in midair. Call it “quantum levitation.”

Elyn Saks: A tale of mental illness — from the inside

Friday, July 6th, 2012

“Is it okay if I totally trash your office?” It’s a question Elyn Saks once asked her doctor, and it wasn’t a joke. A legal scholar, in 2007 Saks came forward with her own story of schizophrenia, controlled by drugs and therapy but ever-present. In this powerful talk, she asks us to see people with mental illness clearly, honestly and compassionately.

Elyn Saks asks bold questions about how society treats people with mental illness.

Isaac’s Live Lip-Dub Proposal

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

This might be the best Marriage Proposal that I have seen in some time. It’s a mix of surprise, Broadway musical, roller coaster/amusement park ride, co-ordination, and a whole bunch of people! Anyhow, watch it and think how to top that and be original!

“Here’s to the Crazy One” Quote Poster

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Awesome Letterpress Poster! Too bad they  are not available anymore.

“The now iconic quote debuted in a 1997 television commercial for Apple Computer. The text was said to have been partially written by then Apple CEO Steve Jobs (along with Rob Siltanen and Ken Segall). He embodied the characteristics in this quote arguably better than anyone in history. Today it lives on as a mantra for artists, inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators around the world.”

Social Media Explained

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

“Douglas Wray posted a whiteboard breakdown of all the major social media services and explained how they differ from each other using the example of a donut. Quite fittingly he posted the image on Instagram–the photo sharing service”.

Pretty awesome, though I might add Yelp as where you got the Donuts!

Caine’s Cardboard Arcade

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Did you ever invent with boxes and leftovers when you were younger? We’ll I certainly did and this video documenting 9 year old Cain certainly brought me back to those days, but back in those days, there was no Youtube, or internet….but if there was…something like the video above might have just happened.

After watching in  the delightful rather cheery video, go check out CainsArcade website, and help them raise money and others like Cain for future education. (they already have close to 200k!)

WOW! Hydro-Fold is a beautiful project taking thin sheets and printing watery thin patterns on them allowing them to fold up by themselves!  Watch the video above and watch the magic happen.
