“Journey into the backwoods of Oregon with Eric Singer and crew to construct a community hideaway in the trees. The oversized nest is intended to inspire others to make the trek into the woods surrounding Mt. Hood. Those who successfully locate the fort are encouraged to add onto the structure and share with others. The first person to discover the nest will be greeted with a free pair of sunglasses stashed inside! Enjoy this new video from Shwood!” – Courtesy of Hypebeast
Meet the Inkling by WACOM, which brings designers back to their roots: drawing with pen and paper.
The Inkling is a digital sketch pen and receiver; sketch, and your lines will be translated into an illustration on your computer. You don’t need special paper to record your drawings; you can attach the Inkling’s receiver to any paper surface and scribble away. If that weren’t enough, you can create multiple “layers” while you sketch; when you import your sketches, these will translate into layered files in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro. Best part is the price at only $199. Available mid-September at Amazon.com.
I came across these amazing little vacuum motors by Boehm Stirling the other day and was mesmerized by the craftsmanship and impressive functionality. The principle behind the Stirling motor dates back 2000 years to the ancient Egypt, and is quite simple. A burner filled with fuel heats the air inside a cylinder and thereby purveys energy to the motor that activates through piecing of the flywheels. Check out all their desk size engines here.
