Haha… this is funny. More photos below.
OSTRICH offers a micro environment in which to take a warm and comfortable power nap at ease. It is neither a pillow nor a cushion, nor a bed, nor a garment, but a bit of each at the same time. Its soothing cave-like interior shelters and isolates our head and hands (mind, senses and body) for a few minutes, without needing to leave our desk.

Parents need to have fun too, and if you can do that while pushing the baby’s stroller, even better… The Roller Buggy was designed by Valentin Vodev of Pixstudio – it is a stoller/scooter with a hydraulic brake system with two disc brakes which allows for easy stopping. Recommended for kids above 1.5 years, and with speeds below 9mph. This was awarded third prize at the 11th International Bicycle Design Competition in Taiwan. I’m not completely sold on this… yet.
How does this chair stand you may ask? It’s magic… no not really. But it is a cool design. Simple… there is a thick plate in the carpet which supports the chair. Pretty cool regardless. This was designed by Peter Bristol. More photos after the break.

Anyways, here are some images of the world’s largest model airport which is on display in Hamburg, Germany at Miniatur Wunderland. It took 6 years and $5 million to make this airport. This looks a lot like the magic of tilt shift photography. More photos below.

Graffiti is often misunderstood, and it is difficult for a graffiti writer to explain what he feels about it. I have been asked by a book publisher to write few pages to explain to teenagers how to practice graffiti. After hours and hours I came to the conclusion there was nothing to teach about it except providing the tool to do it. The new generation needs to discover it by practising it instead of reading lessons. Rather than a long sterile speech debating on the good or bad vertues I created my own book to share my point of view through a conceptual message.

Similar to the Kindle, the paper phone uses an E-Ink display, and works by bending the phone in different positions to make calls, use apps, etc. I think this technology can prove useful in future versions of cellphones, tablets, newspapers, magazines, etc. It will be interesting to see how this will be integrated.

Created by research teams at Queen’s University in Canada and Arizona State University, the 9.5-centimeter (diagonal) screen is actually a lightweight flexible display. It’s said to feel similar to a bendable piece of plastic.
