This is all very exciting. Rumors are flying that suggest Leica will be releasing an M10 version to their digital camera lineup that shoots exclusively black and white.

The works above are just a few selects from a larger collection called ‘Misunderstanding Focus’. It’s interesting how some […]

Board of Awesomeness -> Chaotic Moon Labs

Notes from Vimeo:
“Chaotic Moon Labs’ “Board of Awesomeness” is intended as a technology teaser to show how perceptive computing can turn around the way we look at user experiences.

This short story by illustrator and motion graphic designer Lydia Lee is pretty fresh. The lighting, motion design and rendering style really make it stand out. Definitely worth a view, be sure to have a look at her nice type design examples as well in her portfolio.

The Inverted Bike Shop -> Show Love

I like the personal approach to this Brooklyn based bike shop called 718c Cyclery, and the overall in-store presentation, especially the exploded view of the bicycle hung on the wall towards the beginning of the video. Pretty fresh. Nice documentary coming from the story tellers at showloveworld.com.
Notes from Vimeo:
“Amongst the multitude of bike shops across Manhattan and […]

NUIverse -> MSFT Surface 2012

Amazing multimodal and gestural advancements coming from MSFT, utylizing their Surface technology. I love the additional functionality that comes with the transparent chips. Very inspiring to those who are noodling with interface design/technology.

Christopher Payne -> Photography

New York based photographer Christopher Payne places the focus of his work on the documentation of America’s vanishing architecture and industrial landscape. I very much enjoy his ‘Asylum’ series (Asylum: Inside the Closed World of State Mental Hospitals (MIT Press, 2009)) from his portfolio site, capturing unkempt interiors and the remnants of things left behind. […]

This is one book I’ll be excited to add to my reading list this Spring. Srsly, can’t wait to read it…
Notes from Vimeo:
“Widely revered as the “artists’ gallerist,” Jonathan LeVine has nourished a much needed alternative viewpoint within the stilted New York art market. […]

REI -> Flash 62 Pack 360° Visualizer

It’s tough trying to select a highly technical piece of outdoor gear online. Especially a heavy-duty pack designed specifically to carry even more technical gear, there’s a lot to consider and it almost becomes impossible to make a decision without seeing it up close and in-person. That’s why I really dig REI’s smart ‘Flash 62 […]

Tilt shift -> The City of Samba

The City of Samba from Jarbas Agnelli on Vimeo.
This is an amazing example of tilt-shift videography produced by by Keith Loutit and Jarbas Agnelli. Probably the best example I’ve seen to date. The footage was captured during Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro, 2011. Have a look, go fullscreen.

Things Organized Neatly -> Tumblr

This is a fun Tumblr blog appropriately named ‘Things Organized Neatly’, perfect for fellow OCD’ers out there who obsess over clean lines and clarity of arrangement, balance and relationship. On a good day my desk, coffee table and the floor of my closet resemble some of these finely tuned arrangements of stuff. Have a look.

It’s never too late to say happy new year, well, maybe April is too late. Regardless, I really enjoy the overall vibe of this ‘Happy New Year’ video produced by ‘Hello Stranger’. The timelapse fwd and back, fireworks and zippy soundtrack make this a fun view, any time of the year.
