I love this Rube Goldberg machine by London design firm Berg. Exploring our relationship with modern technology they made this almost humorous machine that plays with Rube’s chain of events, but in a new-age non-physical way using RFID chips and the like.
After seeing a Rube Goldberg machine at the Pompidou in Paris that was 15 minutes long and mostly used fire, this almost makes me laugh in it’s clever use of technology to achieve the same results (but not quite as exciting as the fire)
I just love things like this. RHONDA is an application, written by a small team, that redefines sketching and 3d modeling and combines them into a surprisingly intuitive system for “dimension free sketching” (I just made that up, but they should use it).
Watch the video to see James Paterson sketching something out, and then a collection of his past works using RHONDA (RhondaForever.com).
Really beautiful right? I love James’ style and gesture, but it couldn’t succeed like it does without this amazing tool. I’ve already sketched out a few things with it and it’s a blast. Sadly I could only use my trackpad, but it was still very interesting and very fun. It’s quite hard to disconnect yourself from your two-dimensional drawing habits, but when you do it’s a very unique experience.
Here’s a video of me doing some free drawing and playing with the space.
They have the beta opened to those who register and want to help them out by testing it a bit. I HIGHLY recommend getting it. RhondaForever.com
Who doesn’t like lasers? I mean the non-vaporizing your friends kind of course, but still.
Somehow these guys have used lasers to both track objects and draw as well.
I love this. A completely invisible interface that’s still perfectly intuitive. Who knew you could create a ground-breaking device that doesn’t even need an instruction manual! Amazing.
Art’s Cafe at 9th and Irving here in SF, is something to behold. One row of 10-12 seats right down the middle makes up the entire seating area of the cafe, the other half being the grill and etc. You’ll be sitting a foot away from the best Grill-master you’ll ever see and his wife (the owners) who’ll fill your coffee almost faster than you can drink.
While all this makes it a very cozy and comfortable place to eat, the important part as we all know is the food. Oh, the food.
I won’t lie, I haven’t tried much of their Breakfast Diner / Korean menu because I can’t drag myself away from their Hashbrown Sandwich. A Hashbrown sheet filled with cheese, onions, your choice of meat, and folded over itself with a side of eggs your-style and toast.
Is there a word stronger than “de-fucking-licious”? Think about it while you watch this little tribute I put together. Enjoy.
Shot on a Canon 5D, minimal post processing. Flash used was Canon 580EX (as well as flashlights, headlamps, lanterns).
We were GOING to deep fry the entire turkey, but the giant aluminum pot sprang a leak! Thus I had to stop documenting and quickly quarter the bird so it could be fried in the smaller but more firesafe container.
Next time the bird makes it in whole….
