Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes is a take on Tarot and makes divining the sacred mysteries of “what’s for dinner tonight?” a snap. Simply lay the cards out three at a time and voila—a meal appears, a vision from the spirit realm. Food Fortunes can be played alone or with hungry friends to give apathetic appetites a mystical nudge in the right direction. Made me smile.

Staying Human in the Machine Age

“Instead of looking at technologies programmed to enable human beings to better navigate the world I see technologies optimized to help corporations better navigate and manipulate human behavior. That’s not technology’s fault but a question of who and what we’re allowing to build our applications and whether or not we’re willing to look at them from the perspective of human need.”

Antivegetativa

Interesting Paint Job

Davide_DElia_Art_9152-1050x700

This art installation made me look. I wouldn’t mind doing this in my apartment, painting half way and over my art. (Obviously, I would first go to the thrift store to replace my current art)

Italian artist Davide D’Elia‘s ‘Antivegetativa‘ installation transformed a Roman gallery into a bright aqua ship hull. Reminds me a lot of Oliver Jeffer’s dipped painting project.

Roasting a marshmallow over a fire is a volatile task. If you’re not careful, you can burn it to a crisp, or get an undercooked center with a charred shell. Thanks Lifehacker for this post teaching us how it’s done.

tabtag – Glowing & Reusable MacBook Stickers

Every time I grab my MacBook and see our custom CreativeMornings tabtag, it puts a smile on my face. I am usually not someone that would E-V-E-R put a sticker on anything I own, but the concept of tabtags won me over: They are glowing (!) and reusable MacBook stickers. You can remove them without a trace and reuse them over and over. SO MUCH FUN!

Chose from their huge archive of designs or make your own.
