Yuri Suzuki

I need to apologize to you for not posting any of this guy’s work sooner! I swore that I did but when I was looking for the backlinks I realized I did not 🙁 Yuri Suzuki has done some of my favorite installation works that I’ve seen maybe ever. He is a very multi-disciplined creator

D-Touch

WOW! This is essentially an interface that requires only a computer, a webcam, a printer and a lot of ideas. The D-Touch sequencer and drum machine are available for FREE (both Mac and PC versions). Just watch the video and definitely go to their site. Simply amazing.

this makes me happy and sad at the same time

The industrial designer in me loves to see a nice cut-away of an object but this is almost sacrilegious!

Now people that use tools have a blog too

For years the internet has forgotten a small group of people. This small demographic is those among us that use tools to fix and build stuff. Well, now these freaks got their own blog. I checked it out and even found out that there are stores with nothing but tools (and now bottled water). Who’d

Change of heart…

It’s no secret that I don’t really care for large corporations that don’t do much good for the world. However, I really want to work with BMW.
