                                The satisfying percussion of the mechanical split-flap display once synonymous with arrivals and departures within the halls of train stations, bus depots, and airports makes a welcome return as the <a href="https://www.vestaboard.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Vestaboard</a> – a mechanical messaging and display system refreshed with wi-fi connectivity, app integration, and voice-command technology.
The nostalgic ASMR-inducing click-clacking mechanics remains at the heart of the Vestaboard experience – a 37″ x 21″ x 3″ messaging system outfitted with a 23 x 7 grid alphanumeric layout (alongside 8 TBD art/colors characters) designed to display up to 161 characters at one time. Seen from the perspective of a digital native, the Vestaboard’s inherent brevity seems practically the manifestation of a concisely written tweet. And in fact, the Vestaboard is Twitter compatible. The system also plays nice with IFTTT, Google Calendar, Slack, and other info-productivity technologies. So beyond sharing 160 character tweets with coworkers, the display is a novel way

Instead of typical plastics and rubbers normally utilized for protective duties, the German company specializes in producing luxurious iPhone cases featuring genuine quarried minerals as old as 350 million years old: granite, quartz, marble, and slate offered in a rainbow of hues. The resulting hand-machined cases seem nearly as precious as the phone its protecting within itself.

Each case is machined with diamond tools for precision, then engraved across the top surface using a high performance laser, finally sanded and cleaned to a smooth finish.

Weighing just 50 grams and only 0.7mm thin, the 2-piece luxury iPhone accessories features intricately detailed layers of sliced stone securely fastened to an anodized aluminum body frame without adding an excess of heft. Inside is equally luxe, with a protective layer of Alcantara or vegetable leather keeping devices safe while in its

The Orbita Clock’s “Revolutionary” Movement

Two pared down overlapping wood rings – each marked with a single dash, representing the hour and minute – traditional clock hands, numerical indicators, and even a center are nowhere to be found. Instead, the donut-upon-donut Orbita wall clock revolves with barely perceptible speed with every passing minute, a sculptural presence rather than a glaring time keeping one. At its core, it’s a design relying upon our learned ability to remember the positions of every minute and hour, a competency arguably earned over a lifetime of wondering, “Is it time to go home yet?” or

Meural is offered in two versions: the 20 by 50.2 by 1.6 inches Winslow Canvas surrounded by a tasteful 1.5-inch natural walnut frame, or the slightly smaller framed Leonora Canvas available in either black or white. Both models use the same 27-inch 1080p LCD partnered with 8GB of memory (4GB for storing art, and 4GB for storing firmware and software updates). The only difference is the size and material of the exterior frame, with each capable of displaying a wide assortment

But there&#8217;s a bit more behind this task light designed by Pierre Garner of eliumstudio for Oledcomm: it&#8217;s also capable of transmitting an Internet connection solely using light.
Light Fidelity, also known as Li-Fi, is an innovative wireless technology invented in 2005 by Oledcomm founder, Suat Topsu. Theoretically, it promises connections speeds of up to 13 MB/s download and 10 MB/s upload using light emitting diodes (LED) in lieu of standard wi-fi routers. Li-Fi operates by modulating light emitted by an LED light at an imperceptibly fast rate; these light signals are received by a dongle and translated into into the data that eventually draws up what we see and hear on our screen while browsing the internet. By nature of the technology, the Li-Fi equipped lamp also eliminates electromagnetic emissions. And because a signal requires a line of sight of the

Heatworks Tetra: A Wi-Fi Connected Countertop Dishwasher

                                With its transparent case and microwave-size dimensions, it&#8217;s easy to mix up the <a href="https://myheatworks.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Heatworks</a> Tetra for one of the numerous tabletop consumer 3D printers sporting a similar design these days. But Tetra&#8217;s purpose isn&#8217;t additive like a printer, it&#8217;s subtractive: a compact kitchen appliance designed to wash dishes with a minimal amount of water and time.
Sculpted and engineered in partnership with Frog Design, the Tetra’s compact dimensions are made possible by Heatwork’s previous efforts producing the Model 3 tankless water heater. Using the same tankless technology that permits abandoning traditional heating elements for graphite electrodes (Ohmic Array technology), the Tetra is able to heat water with greater precision and efficiency using only half a gallon of water and 10 minutes for a full cycle cleaning.
“Our research indicates that although the average household is comprised of 2.58 people, the modern dishwasher holds place settings for 13 or

Island Colors Wash Ashore at Coral Sands in Harbour Island

                                Harbour Island in the Bahamas is a color lover&#8217;s paradise. Just 3 1/2 miles long, 1/2 mile wide, the island is a parenthetical sliver of blush pink sands stretched across aquamarine waters. For here, whether it&#8217;s pigment or personalities, the island is enthusiastically colorful. And along a section of Harbour Island&#8217;s most scenic stretch of shoreline awaits <a href="https://www.coralsands.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Coral Sands</a>.

Yes, a large flatscreen television, iPhone dock, and your very own wi-fi network await if so desired, but you’re best forgetting these amenities for the truly hi-def sights outside.

Decorated by British designer Barbara Hulanicki, an understated contemporary interpretation of Caribbean style frames the natural beauty surrounding the hotel’s lush eight acre grounds. Recognizing the polychromatic tropical landscape deserves the greatest attention, the decor at Coral Sands is soothingly monochromatic and unintrusive – warm greys, natural fibers and woods, all against a canvas of whites, only occasionally enlivened with tasteful application

In the case of sneakers, it doesn&#8217;t get any more storied and iconic than the Nike Air Force 1 and the Air Jordan 1.
New collections revolving around a classic style are nothing new. But in the case of the Nike 1 Reimagined collection, it’s both the individual participants and the sum of the team deserving notice: an all-female team of 14 designers selected from Nike’s internal design, materials, and colorists departments. Led by Nike Senior Footwear Creative Director Georgina James, two groups eventually coalesced around the two styles, with each reimagining both hoops-centric shoes well beyond the original silhouettes. Given carte blanche for two weeks to deconstruct and reassemble to their imagination’s content, the designers of the 1

                                Everywhere we looked across the 2018 CES show floor seemed yet another new app-controlled smart home security system. And whether for interior or exterior monitoring, prices have continued to drop, the features list perpetually expands, and the industrial design recurrently improves with every cycle. Here are 10 of our favorite home security cameras available today or coming soon:

Canary View: Announced at the 2018 CES, this 1080p HD resolution camera can keep an eye out for suspicious activity, day or night, with night vision and motion detection sensors inside it’s HAL-in-a-cowl case. The $99 price tag makes it one of the more affordable security measures available, with excellent video quality similar to its more fully featured sibling, the Canary All-in-One.

                                With an extremely limited amount of time to walk the floors of the Consumer Electronic Show this year, we had to rely on a hurried pace, quick note jotting, and shoot-from-the-hip snapshots to remember even a portion of the enormous technology on display this year. Even in this rush, Danish watchmaker SKAGEN made us stop to admire what we think might be the best execution of a smartwatch today: the <a href="http://www.skagen.com/us/en/lp/falster-smartwatches.html" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">SKAGEN Falster Smartwatch</a>.
Skagen’s catalogue of smartwatches is already well represented by a selection of stylish hybrid analogue watches – designs where the form and function of a smartwatch are kept divided between timepiece and a connected app. But with the announcement of the Falster, SKAGEN pushes all chips in, betting on a digital display future with an Android Wear 2.0 powered wearable. Outfitted with a fully digital touchscreen display and interface, the Falster Smartwatch offers a high degree

The trio of exploratory prototypes represent Woven into the Future, a conceptual collection incorporating Flexweave, a proprietary material originally engineered by Reebok to deliver lightweight, durable, and form fit comfort for their athletic footwear line. Doucet reimagined Flexweave beyond its footwear iteration, turning the performance fiber characterized by its figure-8 weave into fingerless gloves with directional technology woven right into the form factor. When asked about

M.A.DI. Unfolds Into a Solar-Powered A-Frame In Just a Few Hours

                                Talk about (near) instant gratification: Italy-based <a href="https://www.madihome.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">M.A.DI.&#8217;s</a> prefab A-frame unfolds to near completion like a pop-up book, requiring only a few hours construction for temporary or permanent occupancy, all without the need for a foundation.
Requiring only a minimal crew of three workers (and the help of a truck and crane), the flatpack M.A.DI. folds out in just 6-7 hours, complete with “water, sanitary, electrical, HVAC, and drainage systems” pre-installed. There’s even a staircase connecting ground level with a loft level, taking advantage of the A-frame’s spacious overhead.

Because the structure doesn’t require a permanent foundation, the flatpack structure is engineered to leave the ground underneath mostly intact.

Because the external walls are not structural, windows can be situated nearly anywhere across the roof. Or even better yet, an array of solar panels convert the structure into an entirely self-sustainable dwelling or temporary structure. The modular nature

The Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Mirror Image

                                Noting the gap in talent, the outcome of Wednesday night&#8217;s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder seemed like a foregone conclusion. But amongst sneakerheads there was another reason to tune into the game: whether reigning NBA league MVP Russell Westbrook would be playing in his newly designed signature shoes for the <a href="https://www.nike.com/us/en_us/c/jordan" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Nike Jordan Brand</a>.
Though OKC would indeed blowout the Lakers, the game did deliver on the new sneaker front, with Russell Westbrook playing three quarters donning his new Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Mirror Image. Named in reflection and comparison between Michael Jordan’s (in)famous resolute intensity of yesteryear alongside the dogged breakneck effort of Westbrook’s play today, the top expanse of the Mirror Image is embellished – from its heel counter to vamp to toe tip – in service of its namesake with a collage of cutout imagery of both players executed in nostalgic Mars
