Senseless?

I like to write. But just because I like to write does not mean that I always know what to write about. And I find  that the same rule seems to apply for many writers. Creativity is a wonderful thing, but it must be used wisely. You can write down words, but but it does not automatically follow that they make sense. : : If you just read the above, I think you will see that I have made my point. You have just read a few paragraphs that...

Glowing roads?

Apparently, in Holland in 2013,  experimental designs that glow in the dark will be installed on a couple hundred meters of road. A powder that uses light from the sun to recharge, and lasts about 10 hours will be used. “It’s like the glow in the dark paint you and I had when we were children,” …… “but we teamed up with a paint manufacture and pushed the development. Now, it’s almost...

Logos – old or new?

What is a Logo? Some of the less knowledgeable would perhaps say that Logos are something that has only come around since technology , since large businesses, etc. They are, as a a matter of fact, quite wrong. Remember the old signs out in the Wild West? For a saloon, there would be a jug of whiskey on the sign, alongside the writing. Go farther back, and you find a theater sign that has a mask on the sign…keep going and you...

Are you never hugged? This vest may be your new best friend.

Living in a world that celebrates social media, and narrowing it down to Facebook in particular,  Melissa Kit Chow (in collaboration with Andy Payne and Phil Seaton as part of MIT’s Tangible Media Group), has designed this vest, seeking to find the connection between digital data and physicality. The “Like- A- Hug Vest”,  inflates when a something of yours is “liked” on Facebook,  producing an effect of feeling...
