Anna and Argyle is a dynamic digital tale that combines the immersive power of modern technology with the timeless simplicity of a storybook.
It is the beautiful story of a girl who wants to find her lost sock. Anna ventures from her family’s laundromat in Brooklyn to the wild world just beyond the rumbling, tumbling machines, discovering that perfect pairs don’t always match.
I love how the founder of LoyalKaspar, Beat Baudenbacher, lets us peek behind the scenes in their short process stories videos, from character building to the typography used. Anna and Argyle is LoyalKaspar’s multi-year side project. Nothing but incredibly impressive.
This GRDE LED nightlight is one of my favorite practical objects in my house. Never thought I’d say that about a nightlight. It gives off just the right amount of light so that my kids feel comfortable in their rooms AND it charges our devices. Total win win!
The folks behind Red Paper Plane believe that “Missions” are a whole new way to learn and play for little ones. They created mission based design challenges for the whole family, based on a creative process – 20 minutes per day for several days. This is fantastic! Especially for snowy winter weekends!
I have been saying for years that I will throw a party once my kids are over the car seat stage. This smart car seat, called Mifold has me ridiculously excited. It’s a tiny booster seat for kids, only instead of lifting the kid to the position of an adult, it pulls the seatbelt down to the correct height for the child. Brilliant!
I wonder though how comfortable it is for the kid sitting on it…
Withings Thermo will make parents around the globe rejoice! It is a handheld device that looks about the size of a toothpaste tube and lets you take a person’s temperature by simply holding the device to one’s forehead. 16 infrared sensors will go to work, taking individual readings to find the hottest spot on the person’s skin. A light vibration indicates it has completed its reading, at which point the results will be displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit via an embedded LED display.
