I really like this chalkboard display for Nagging Doubt, an artisanal wine collective in British Columbia. It’s even better that they made a video of the process.
A buddy of mine has a laser and it’s pretty cool. This is also pretty cool. Markus Kayser set up a very basic cutting system similar to a laser cutter. The machine is solar powered and uses direct sunlight focused through a ball lens to produce shapes in different substrates. I like the imperfection that results from it being an analogue system. Check out more of the Sun Cutter at Markus Kayser’s website
Came across this website for NizoApp. Not sure what NizoApp is entirely, looks like some kind of audio interface for iPhones, but the launch page has a simple but compelling interaction to it. The screenshot doesn’t do much justice. Check out the site at http://www.nizoapp.com
Some pretty awesome friends of ours have been working on putting a pool in the East river in New York City. A “pool that uses and filters the very water that it floats in. A pool that makes it possible to swim off the shores of New York, in river water, that’s clean.” They just launched a KickStarter that will run through July 15. It’s called Plus Pool and you should help them out by donating or getting involved. You can check out the details at www.pluspool.org or donate at their kickstarter.
We’re going to need quite a few jars of Claussens to go with this Hendrick’s Gin-Mobile. Complete with Gin bar, racks for tent, skis, picnic basket and more. Don’t forget the flying cucumber hood ornament.
Loads of respect for these guys from Scotland. When it comes to pushing the limit with beer, call BrewDog. They brewed the End of History beer last year, 10 bottles of 55% ABV beer packaged inside dead rodents. This video from BrewDog popped up on the 37signals blog and we thought it would be nice to share.
This is fantastic. Complete with scoreboard, plunger and lots of neon paint. “It’s a pinball machine like you’ve never seen one before.”
