The 'Coolest' Cooler Kickstarter Has Ever Seen - Core77 - 23-07-2014

If you could combine a cooler with another product, what would it be? A built-in ice crushing blender, a USB charging station, a waterproof bluetooth speaker, or a hidden cutting board? How about all of the above? These are only a few features of the portable icebox that raised close to six million dollars in the first week of its crowdfunding campaign. Now, I don't have a problem with the classic cooler, as inferior as it may seem next to the 'Coolest' cooler—I have many fond memories of get-togethers on the deck of my childhood...

If Researchers are Right, This Rock Will Make Solar Power Cheaper than Coal - Core77 - 23-07-2014

In 2007, a student at the University of Tokyo brought a lump of a grey, sparkly mineral to his professor Tsutomu Miyasaka, with the hope that this material might have potential to make cheap and efficient solar cells. But it only converted 4 percent of the sun energy to electricity. Not that remarkable. Now, however, things have changed. Seven years later the unremarkable lump of rock called perovskite is beating out most solar cells on the market, getting 20 percent efficiency. The progress has sped up because researchers around the world...

The Summer House You've Always Wanted, Built Right Into Your Winter Home - Core77 - 23-07-2014

You've gotta love a house that comes with instructions. The newest project from Iranian design group nextoffice scales up the the space-saving technique behind the Murphy bed and enhances it with a bit of Hogwarts-like whimsy. Their work on the three-floor Sharifi-Ha house in Tehran incorporates a series of semi-mobile rooms, which can be oriented to allow for extra space and sunlight. As any city dweller knows, you don't have a lot of square footage to work with in urban hotspots. This design addresses...

Last Night on Kimmel, Tomorrow at Comic-Con: A Walking 14-Foot Monster, Courtesy of FX Designers and Stratasys - Core77 - 23-07-2014

Every once in a while, a star shows up on Jimmy Kimmel Live and you find that their mother is sitting in the audience. On the show last night something similar happened, albeit with an unusual guest—a bipedal 14-foot monster named "Bodock." Watching proudly from the crowd was Stratasys manager Leslie Frost, tweeting pics and updates. That's because key parts of the creature, like the chest armor, shoulders, arms and fingers, were enormous ABS parts that came out of a Stratasys 3D printer. "Everything about the giant creature project was ambitious, including size, weight, delivery schedule...

Why Should Facebook Have All The Fun? Try the DIY Mood Manipulator - Core77 - 23-07-2014

Regardless of whether you're in the Invasion of Mypace camp, or the Well That's How Business Works camp, Facebook has been playing games with your heart. As we all now ought to know, Facebook has admitted to experimentally filtering feed results to test emotional response and behavior in users. While it's hard to consider experimentation without informed consent to be anything less than blatantly shady, it's also well within their legal rights. Ethical it ain't, but then again deskchair epidemiology has never had the luxury of such self-selecting scale. But the biggest bummer—other than...

How to Hide a Forbidden Image in Plain Sight: Anamorphic Cylinders - Core77 - 22-07-2014

Charles Edward Stuart, colloquially referred to as Bonnie Prince Charlie, fomented the Jacobite uprising of 1745 in an effort to seize the British throne. Charlie's Scottish troops were defeated in battle a year later and he fled to France. In the brutal English crackdown that ensued, Scottish households found to contain a portrait of Bonnie Prince Charlie were in for trouble, so former supporters interested in surviving got rid of them. But not all of them. One artist used a clever technique to secretly hide a portrait of BPC in plain...

Gothscreenshots: The Blog That Brought You the Most Depressing Digital Error Screens is Now Dressing You in Them - Core77 - 22-07-2014

The fact that Soug Wen uses that adorable little shrugging smiley in her tagline for Gothscreenshots might be my favorite thing of the month—the actual apparel collection coming in as a close second. What's so special about this series of graphic tees and accessories? Well, their patterns are based solely on those hated icons we unfortunately see way too often on our computers. In fact, I think I've seen at least three of them in the time it's taken me to write this post. For...

How to Improve the Audio Quality of Vinyl Records with Wood Glue - Core77 - 22-07-2014

One of the first things you learn in the ID shop at design school: Wood glue is for joining wood, welding is great for joining metal, acetone is the thing for fusing plastics together. But when you need to attach one of these materials to another, you've got to switch over to hard fasteners or something more clever, since wood glue won't stick to plastics, et cetera. While that's occasionally a hassle for building multimaterial objects, record lovers have figured out that wood glue not sticking to plastic provides a huge benefit: You can use wood...

Eric Brunt's Flux Snowshoes Transform With Each Step - Core77 - 22-07-2014

I love seeing this kind of nuts-and-bolts industrial design. Seattle-based designer Eric Brunt observed that what makes snowshoes work is their increased surface area, which enables the wearer to "float" atop the surface. But that increased surface area also means that the wearer has to walk like s/he's in a Monty Python sketch. What if, Brunt reasoned, the footprint could shrink when lifted, enabling a more natural gait, then grow again when placed back onto the surface? Brunt mocked up a bunch of "kinematic...

Maserati's elegant new Ghibli broadens the brand's appeal - Wallpaper - 22-07-2014

The new Maserati Ghibli feels slightly anachronistic, at first. Here is a car pitched well below the rest of the Maserati range, yet which practically shares its dimensions with the flagship Quattroporte saloon. It also has the same name as one of the marque's most celebrated historic models. So, what role is the Ghibli meant to have? It is very much the spearhead of Maserati's push into new markets and sales. The company has ambitious plans to triple sales within the next few years and the Ghibli is instrumental to this scheme, along with an as-yet-unseen new SUV. This kind of car...

House for Trees: an interactive tour of Vo Trong Nghia Architects' green residence in Ho Chi Minh City - Wallpaper - 22-07-2014

Take an interactive tour of House for Trees Working within a tight budget, the architects created a house in what used to be a vacant lot in the...

Spirulina Stations: Superfood Solution to Expensive, Super Food - Core77 - 22-07-2014

A backgrounder for those of you who don't live in Berkeley: Spirulina is a superfood. A superfood, for those who aren't obsessed with nutritional fads, is a food that is off-the-charts rich in vitamins, minerals and other stuff that is obviously yet mysteriously Good For You. Despite their grandiose title, it is a great idea to eat these uncommon comestibles; however, spirulina in particular can be a bit of work to get your hands on. It's traditionally grown in small ponds—historically in a lake system in Chad of all places—and it looks, to those without...

Updating the Portfolio: Artist Renders His Own Childhood Sketches - Core77 - 21-07-2014

If design school served you well, the sketches you were cranking out senior year should've been a damn sight better than your freshman scribbles. As your skills continue to develop, is there anything more painful for a creative than to look back at your early work? Do you save your lame renderings from 2004 for posterity, or junk them because they're no longer representative of your current skillset? Dutch artist Telmo Pieper saved his drawings from childhood—and, amusingly, updated them using the modern-day digital painting skills he presumably did not possess at four years of age....
