Skateboarding table

Whats unconventional often intrigues me a lot. As much as design is concerned, we want the very best for our clients. Design in itself is a solution that solves a given problem or need. Take this interesting art piece for example. A table skateboard. Pretty neat right? I saw this really interesting table from Yanko Design and thought it was brilliant. Many times we include things in our life that aren’t exactly necessary. But what if we marry two different usage together, forming a harmonious art piece? We get this fantastic design. Lovely.

Eyewear gone funky

There are just tons of stuffs that have yet to be on this blog. One category that I would like to have it here would be fashion. Where fashion is concerned, eyewear plays a significant part in framing our facial appearances. Percy Lau’s current eyewear collection extrudes unique artistic imagery which is less evident amongst mainstream eyewear catalogs. With the help of designer, Sylwana Zybura, a series of really interesting visuals is created. Very unconventional yet inspiring.

Wheeling the future

NASA continues to produce ground breaking technology. Their new MRV (Modular Robotic Vehicle) prototype boosts the efficiency of standard vehicle manoeuvrability through the use of four liquid-cooled wheel motors. At the same time, its remote controlling features makes the entire driving experience extremely dynamic. Taking on dangerous expeditions require extremely versatile hardware like this. One that is not only able to navigate seamlessly but also able to travel smartly. The video showcases the vehicle’s ability to drift effortlessly, a potential feature to help in negotiating dangerous terrains. NASA made the ride extremely agile by having each of the four wheel to functioning at its own course independently. Another awesome function would be the vehicle’s ability to go driverless. Its remote controlled function allows the expedition teams to rove around many unfamiliar terrains.

Awesome LEGO machinery

I love LEGO. And when I saw this video that one of my peers had posted on her Facebook, I was completely blown away! The way the company sees itself moving towards developing builders of tomorrow drives my motivation to continue my support for the brand. This video is a great example of how the toy is no longer just a play thing for kids. When used with precision coupled with engineering, one can easily create fantastic technology. Using careful computation and tapping on every possible LEGO brick, Akiyuki took on the Great Ball Contraption project. Took the creator almost 600 hours to conceive this beautiful project. What more can I say? Brilliant.

Google Street View driving simulation

I think the idea of getting a car license meant you are keen to drive and would want to be a qualified driver. The truth is that most examinations would focus a lot on theory with unrealistic and dated visual simulations. This sprouts inaccuracy and hinders your understanding of actual live traffic conditions. Now that technology has gone beyond our expectations, we can pretty much rely on Google Street View to assist in the learning process. You get to simulate an environment where there is control over realistic traffic situations. This is just the right technology that helps to make real safe drivers.
