It’s always amazing to find visuals that really move your emotions or make you think how massive and complex the world is. These photos are from the Prix Pictet, a photography exhibition asking for photos that use the power of photography to communicate vital messages to a global audience. Found over at DesignBoom
Came across The Fox is Black website this morning. They post all sorts of art and design and I noticed our Meteor bottles were posted a couple weeks back. The Fox is Black also has a whole section called Space Suit of the Week which is a running collection of space suit images and space suit related stuff. I always wanted to be an astronaut and I think the suit is one of the most symbolic aspects of being chosen for space exploration.
We really do live in an information age. These IDEO concepts really take a look at improving product experiences by connecting information more intelligently. I love how the environments are shot for each concept.
We were so excited to get this email we thought we would share.
“Thought you might appreciate this little story – my son is 5 and is in a class at school where they encourage parents to come in and talk about what they do. Their “letter of the week” last week was R, so I took the opportunity to go in and talk about Radio. Put together 30 minutes that started with me reading the little orange book to them while they followed along with their own little orange books (we had extra.) Followed that by giving them the opportunity to broadcast a morning show using a mic and a speaker.
They LOVED LOVED LOVED the orange book – every one of them continued to flip through it after we read it and couldn’t wait to take it home.
Just wanted you to know that these books that you created are now inspiring Radio professionals of the future!!!”

Have some quarters and feel like killing time at a bar? I came across this article on Popular Mechanics from 2009 with some interesting facts about pinball. Did you know pinball was once considered a form of gambling and outlawed in much of the U.S.? Did you know that there is only one company that actually still makes pinball machines? Check out the article then go pop a machine somewhere.
Back to back blogs involving a GoPro camera might be setting the stage for GoPro week here at WORK Labs. This video pulled from RCExplorer.se takes remote controlled to the next level. Using a bit switch and match heads, this video features RC Helicopters and Tri-pods armed with fireworks, all filmed by a GoPro.
