I remember something about counting the rings to determine the age of a tree when I was still studying AP bio. Unfortunately, it doesn’t count here because it’s not real wood. But it’s still the best looking log of fake wood I’ve ever seen.
Yay, my mini cards are finally here! I got a set for each my portfolio and modeling blog. (Although I should probably make a some for this blog just to complete the set.)
Two sets of 100. The stock paper is sealed with thin sheets of matte plastic (sort of like frisket) that distorts hides the pixels underneath. Some of the pictures are darker than the files I expected. It’slike someone upped the contrast, but it’s not too bad. Of course most people don’t look that far into it because they’re still beautiful. I should probably retake pictures in sunlight. Seems a bit dark here.
Smooth to touch. Small as a stick of gum. Beautiful packaging. I even got the blue and orange boxes that I was hoping for. I almost don’t want to hand them out.
General Motors decided to stop making cars out of metal and the latest innovative automotive materials and cast a 1.5 ton Chevrolet Orlando in…(wait for it)…PLAY-DOH!
The choice of blue mold material was based on a UK survey of their favorite toy of youth. It’s probably not weather proof if they didn’t give it a clear top coating, but at least it’s better than another lego sculpture.
I’ve always been fond of glass. And if that’s what the future is moving towards, I’m all for it. Touch interface for all counter tops doesn’t seem impossible anymore. Although, I would like my phone to be made of bullet proof glass and not just Apple’s helicopter windshields.
The new Ipad 2! The only thing they forgot to mention is that it comes with a permanently attached stand but I can understand their mistake since they were hiding it under his shirt. Remember, no Beiber music or it will self-destruct.
P.S. You probably know this already, but the product is going to be officially announced 5 days from now (March 2nd).
I opened this email just minutes ago and burst out laughing at Usain Bolt’s priceless expression. The world’s fastest man dumbfound by a “lightweight” shoe? (Though I admit that is quite a big shoe you got there.)
This is the first time I’ve seen a full size scaled airport (1/144, I believe). It appears at all the vehicles are controlled by remote, including the cars. What amazes me the most is the tiny lights and details. Truly amazing.
[BottleHood is a San-Diego-based organization made up of unnamed creatives (a jeweler, a weaver and a graphic designer) who “rescue” glass bottles that have no monetary recycling value under California regulations. Rather than see these hit landfill, BottleHood gives them a second life by turning them into drinking glasses and vases. Liquor bottles in particular seem to serve these purposes well from a graphic design standpoint.]
Although I’m not a drinker, or rather I avoid it if I can, I always found the design of alcohol bottles quite attractive. It does seem like a waste to dispose of the beautiful heavy glass after they’re drained but not all of us have the equipment to cut through glass and reincarnate them as drinking glasses (to consume even more alcohol). Someone’s got to do it.
Welcome to the future! Well, the future is 10 years late but at least it showed up. Propelled by water pressure, it’s relatively safe compared to most of what you thought a jet pack should be. It has to be operated above water and lasts for up to two hours of use on a single tank. It’s actually up for sale, only costs $136,000. The good thing about it is, you don’t have have to buy it if you can rent it at some of bigger resorts. You would probably want that with your yacht, too.
A cool running app made by Nike Japan. Global Relay. Email Batons. I like it. Although I think this concept could have been done years ago. It might be a fun idea to strap cameras/iPhones to our chests to show your teammates some scenery. I wish I had a few more running friends around to do this with.
