Company Invents Shotgun Suppressor and a Strange Superhero - Core77 - 31-07-2014

I've got a friend from Alabama who told me that growing up, most families she knew kept shotguns in the house. When you heard a noise in the middle of the night, the shotgun was the go-to item, and she explained that the CHIK-CHIK sound of "racking" it carried across the porch and was enough to discourage the casual burglar. Another sound shotguns make is the actual blast, and I'm told it's deafening. Twelve-gauges reportedly top out around 150 to 165 decibels, and inside a house, where there are walls to bounce the sound around...

Designing for Drivers: Organizing the Car - Core77 - 31-07-2014

As a professional organizer, I've helped people organize their homes and offices—and their cars. One challenge drivers have is finding a good place to keep things like smart phones and sunglasses close at hand. (Hopefully, no one is texting while driving, but there are other reasons to keep a smart phone nearby; I need mine to hear my turn-by-turn driving instructions.) Here's one solution to that challenge: The StickyPad from HandStands is one of several non-adhesive, non-magnetic pads that goes on a dashboard. There's an interesting balance here—the pad should be sticky...

Does No One Else Find This Ridiculous? - Core77 - 31-07-2014

Bike Grouch Alert: So it's come to this. That there is Lucid Design's "Kit Bike," which, like an IKEA shelving unit, can be assembled and disassembled into 21 parts for ease of transport. I didn't mind Paolo de Giusti's asymmetrical concept bike and I can appreciate the over-the-top hipster chic of Van Hulsteijns, but this is exactly the kind of thing that the general public will eat up with nary a thought about whether it would actually work. After all, it turned up in...

Core77 Design Awards 2014: The Best Furniture & Lighting Designs of the Year - Core77 - 31-07-2014

When you think about it, the basic forms of quintessential articles of furniture—I'm talking desks, chairs, couches, stools, work lamps and pendant fixtures—largely consist of variations on a theme. As such, furniture designers innovate through the details from new manufacturing methods and materials to integrating functionality that speaks to our mobile, tech-enhanced lifestyles. This much is apparent in seing the honorees for the Furniture & Lighting category of the 2014 Core77 Design Awards. While the selections from Jury Captain Naihan Li and...

The Mercedes GLA joins a new breed of crossover cars - Wallpaper - 31-07-2014

The Mercedes-Benz GLA belongs to that emerging species of automobile: the crossover. Born out the apparent consumer desire for chunky, high-riding cars that aren't as overscaled as a traditional SUV, the industry has embraced the crossover in all its forms, either building bespoke cars that blend the styling cues of a 4x4 with the practicality of a traditional family car or by pumping up an existing model. The GLA falls into the latter category and its antecedents are glaringly obvious - this is basically the company's acclaimed A-Class injected with growth hormone. So what makes the GLA distinct from its acclaimed...

"Driving Dreams" Documentary Seeks to Highlight Unsung Heroes of Italian Automotive Design - Core77 - 31-07-2014

Up above you see snippets of exotic cars. What you don't see are the faces of the Italian men, now in their 70s and 80s, who designed them. "Almost everything we know about cars, we conclude unconsciously from [the] silhouette, face, details," writes Gianluca Migliarotti. "Isn't [it] strange that people who shaped our dreams through design [remain] virtually unknown?" Filmmaker Migliarotti and automotive historian Daniel Tomicic are trying to rectify that with Driving Dreams, their documentary focusing on the second golden era of car design—the one that came not from America, but from Italy. In addition...

A New Wearable Battery: More Flexible and Durable than Anything Else - Core77 - 30-07-2014

There are at least two big challenges with creating wearable technology. The first is to actually design something that people will want to buy and use, and the second is to keep the device in juice. Here we're going to look at the second. The battery design and function of a wearable device is anything but trivial. We need to develop batteries that are flexible, thin, long-lasting and durable...a huge set of requirements that is very difficult to achieve. But one startup, Imprint Energy, thinks it's got a...

Core77 Design Awards Spotlight: SOAK Charging Side Table - Core77 - 30-07-2014

Ever more powerful portable devices increasingly enable our always on-the-go lifestyles, yet even the fastest microprocessor needs a power supply, and we find ourselves tethered to outlets in moments of repose, and (mis)managing the wires, cables and cords that serve as veritable lifelines for our power-hungry handhelds. It should come as no surprise that the backup battery industry is booming, but what about the way we reboot at home? Instead of attempting to achieve invisibility through reduction, Youmin Vincent Kim has seen fit to hide a charger in plain...

Martha Stewart Loves Drones - Core77 - 30-07-2014

If you asked me a year ago which famous persons are advocates of drones, homemaking maven Martha Stewart would not have topped that list. But after receiving a camera-outfitted drone for her birthday last year, she became enamored of it while flying it around a New England beach and observing the vantages from her iPad. Pronouncing herself "hooked," she continued using the drone to capture subsequent parties, nature hikes and outings. Earlier this year, a member of Stewart's security team purchased a similar drone, and was given permission to learn to fly the thing over Stewart's...

The TSA Wants You-- To Design a Solution to Our Collective Airport Security Woes (For a Chance to Win to $5K of Prize Money) - Core77 - 30-07-2014

The airport security line is the kind of universally despised ordeal that extraterrestrials, should they exist, would dread; even a seasoned traveler will bristle at the thought of the rigmarole of boarding pass / I.D., uncooperative scanners, doffing footwear, unwieldy bins, more scanners. At best, it's a mildly demeaning nuisance, but what are you going to do about it? Well, it turns out that the TSA wants to know—they recently announced an Ideation Challenge soliciting proposals for expediting the process, specifically for TSA Pre✓ passengers but ostensibly for us plebs as well. "America's Next...

An Ingenious Little Plastic Gizmo that Makes Up for an Apple Design Flaw - Core77 - 30-07-2014

I'm a heavy Apple user and I love their products, but I'm bewildered by some of their design decisions. The one that drives me the most nuts is that my Thunderbolt Display's USB ports are on the back. As someone who is frequently connecting and disconnecting things, this gets super-annoying. So I was excited when I saw this little gizmo by BlueLounge, the Jimi USB extension: (more...)
