Nick Frank -> Hong Kong Cityscapes

Photographer Nick Frank has a special technique and style that I really admire. His Hong Kong cityscapes are a fascinating blend of urban mass and natural landscape that somehow meld calmly together. Many more amazing images beyond the link.

London Symphony Orchestra -> HD Online Performances

This multiple camera HD viewing experience, created by the London Symphony Orchestra, makes for an interesting and entertaining way to explore the symphony in action. The ‘explore the orchestra’ area is especially nice because it allows you to discover the many instruments as well as the individual symphony members. Perfect for educational use.

Jamie Boud -> Race of Gentlemen photos

Filed under ‘the coolest thing I’ve seen all week’. A good friend passed along this fantastic photo set captured by Jamie Boud documenting the 2nd Annual Race of Gentlemen, that occurs in good ol’ Wildwood N.J. Go Jersey! From the looks of it, I may have to jump on a plane back east to see the race […]

Mitch Dobrowner -> Storm Photography

The absolutely gorgeous captures above were taken by Long Island (Bethpage), NY born fine art photographer Mitch Dobrowner. His pristine black and white processing reveals every tiny detail, really showing off the power and awe inspiring beauty of each storm. Just amazing. I’d love to see his prints in person.

Future of The Airline Website? -> FI case study

Is This The Future of The Airline Website? from Fantasy Interactive on Vimeo.

This is an interesting case study by experience design agency, FI (Fantasy Interactive), exploring the ideal state of online travel booking and planning. With so many travel sites being a cluttered, difficult, high stress experience, this seems to be a breath of fresh […]

Box -> Projection Mapping

Box from Bot & Dolly on Vimeo.

This is one of the best projection mapping efforts that I’ve seen in some time. Typically, projection mapping takes place on a fixed object and evolves on that canvas alone, static position. In this video, the canvas is in motion, the camera is in motion, and the projection transcends […]

Fesson Ludovic -> Natural Sculpture

In a world where the temptation to overbuild, overcomplicate, and overthink, comes all too easy, I find Jargeau, France based artist, Fesson Ludovic’s land art to be refreshing. The simple surprise that comes from bringing basic order to organic elements in their own natural environment really delivers, both visually and conceptually. Many more examples of […]

Volcano Choir -> Byegone

Super innovative and atmospheric lighting effects make this video my latest favorite. Fantastic track as well by Volcano Choir. Make your Monday a little brighter.

The atmospheric lighting dramatically highlights the surrounding Floridian foliage in a surreal way that I really enjoy. Many more fun photos to check out beyond the link below. (via fastcodesign.com)

Thalmic Labs -> Wearable Gesture Control

MYO by Thalmic Labs seems to have limitless capabilities. Nice wearable gestural solution, all based on muscle flex response and position …one to keep an eye on. In many ways, it’s like using “the force”. May the force be with you.

Experiments in Speed -> Spindle Productions

As you can see from the last few posts, I have bicycle on the brain this summer. One more… This is a true testament to the creative spirit, and the natural human instinct and hunger to push forward. Pun intended. Great story, well told.

Closca -> collapsible helmet design

CLOSCA | Street style foldable bike helmet from Closca Helmets on Vimeo.

Nice collapsable bicycle helmet design coming from Closca. I like the flat cap look, not a bad option for those of us who have a tough time going with the traditional full-melon design …or gourd, depending on your vegetable preferences.

Ascari -> Fine Bicycles

I believe there is a tipping point in design, when the craftsmanship of any given product becomes so highly refined and so special, that it starts to evolve into a work of art. Portland based Ascari bicycles seem to be on that end of the scale for sure. The welds, logo work, cranks… the attention to detail is […]

Use. Design. Engineer. Build. Repeat. -> Black Diamond

CARABINERS: Use. Design. Engineer. Build. Repeat.

Consumer confidence is not easily attained. Sometimes you have to tell little stories to get there. This video by Black Diamond does a really nice job illustrating the level of quality, craftsmanship and design involved with creating one of their rock solid carabiners. Black Diamond has also redesigned their site experience, […]
