I have been moving away from "Hip-Hop" lately but thank God that BEP also feels the need to experiment with different genres. Been a fan before the stardom and continue to enjoy their songs. The LMFAO is a great feel-good, love positive song. Thats all.
Though vague about how the apparatus connects and loads from online searching, it is interesting to experience the potential of information found online. The machine creates a fluid visual story with drawings from patents.

Reading through ARCH DAILY's article on the Dallas Cowboy Stadium (designed by HKS), I discovered that the original sketches for the stadium were posted!
Architecture ideas tend to lose their quality after several re-designs in drawings and renders. The initial sketch captures the pure thought of the designer and serves as the base for the concept to mature into a viable product.
Have you ever seen a Frank Gehry or Le Corbusier sketch? Those drawings are a-mazing in their own minimalistic way. When the drawing is uploaded into a computer, the human feel tends be lost in all the layers and dimensions.
Read the article and pay close attention to how HKS (HKS Sports + Entertainment Group) preserves their sketch ideas into the actual building.

If you do not operate on Google Chrome then you are seriously missing out on the great products Google is providing for its users.
With the combination of effective e-mail tracking, blog posting, bookmarking, and an ever-improving search engine, Google is far ahead of the competition. But now, Google has collected the talents of designers and artists to give customization a "kool" look.
Marc Ecko, Oscar de la Renta, James White, Kid Robot and Michael Graves have all created custom themes for Google Chrome users. As a designer, I am uber-excited and inspired to use my Google Chrome especially since I customized it with a Karim Rashid interface.
I suggest you make the switch :)

LOL! This camera idea is a great concept but I'm sure it will take more technological advances before it can work. Industrial Designers are my favorite type of people to know and share time with. Their imagination is endless.

I have never come close to solving a rubik's cube in my life, nor may I ever care to solve it. But the artist at the Johnathan Levine Gallery in New York City has not only mastered it, but manipulated the cube into pop art pieces.

The king of Big Box retail has been taking baby steps towards becoming a sustainable entity. But with the large manufacturing and consuming of products, is it possible? Is Walmart too big and fast to control?

Being that I have become somewhat of a remodeling/retrofitting architect for housing, I can appreciate something like Berstein Architecture's Floating Beds. The framing system of cables with end-bolting presents an idea taken from modern industrial design. Calculating loads maybe the only drawback, as every owner/tenant bring their unique weight. If it was up to me, I would remove the ground cables and let the bed swing away.
