I am not even an outdoorsy person but I totally want one of these Base Lanterns from BioLite. It’s the first flat packed smart lantern that doubles as your own miniature smart grid. These BioLite folks, always pushing new ideas…
Adam Harridan challenged the notion of showing up at an office building Monday to Friday working 14 hours a day for someone else. One day, while walking the streets of New York City, he saw something that both intrigued and inspired him. This is his story.
“Histography” is an impressive interactive timeline that spans across 14 billion years of history, from the Big Bang to 2015. The site draws historical events from Wikipedia and self-updates daily with new recorded events. The viewer can choose to watch a variety of events which have happened in a particular period or to target a specific event in time. For example you can look at the past century within the categories of war and inventions.

This quirky Nose Bandana made me think of my dad who was known for alway carrying a real fabric handkerchief in his pocket. Made me smile.
These Know Yourself Cards by The School of Life are going to help you understand who you really are: what you want, how you feel and why you react as you do. A lack of self-knowledge can be trouble, for it makes us get into the wrong relationships, pick unsatisfactory jobs or spend money unwisely. As Socrates said: ‘Know Yourself’.
While visiting my friend in Charlottesville last week I noticed her wrapping her cheese in this super design-y Cheese Storage Paper by Formaticum. The two-ply paper allows cheese to breathe while maintaining optimal humidity preventing the cheese from drying out. Love that they include a video on how to perfectly wrap your cheese on their product page:
Respect your cheese!
Seems like most people have a hard time remembering how a bike is made, when asked to draw one. Some get close, some actually nail it perfectly, but most end up drawing something that is pretty far off from a regular men’s bicycle. Gianluca Gimini collected hundreds of these drawings and then turned them into 3D renderings. So refreshing! Love this project.
Team Tinybop did it again. They just launched Infinite Arcade and it’s blowing my mind! It basically allows you (or your little ones, of course) to create your own Arcade games. Start out with a classic game to build on and then add building blocks like hot lava, disco bricks, crystal, trampoline tiles etc. And, the best part: you can design your own characters. I know what I am doing this weekend! Get the game!
This touching father-son photo project made my heart melt a bit: Aaron Sheldon documents his four year old son as he discovers the world wearing an astronaut helmet. The helmet symbolizing how astronauts are brave and face their fears, this little four year old braves and discovers the world astronaut style.
Sheldon is turning the series into a photo book. Get a copy by backing his Kickstarter.
