This is so amazing! This reminds me of the MaxMSP work myself and some of my friends did back at Parsons! Reminds me of MonkeyTown performances…oh MonkeyTown, how sad I am that you closed. Also, check out the Laptop Orchestra performance in Tribeca Friday, April 29th 2011.

This kidney bean little cutie is not just ergonomically functional, but ecological too!  NTT Docomo has designed a phone to take advantage of the deliberate thinning of forests to maintain healthy ecosystems. 

The wood is from Shimanto cypress trees and each phone is unique in its coloring and pattern.  I would love one of these little guys.  My dream is to design an all wood phone that does only the very basics!  This is good inspiration!

Kim Manfredi has some truly amazing work.  At first glance it appears to be an image on a cellular level as seen through a microscope.  It has an spectacular and simultaneous quality of biological life and galactic solar system organization.  I can hardly believe this is done with oil on wood!  It’s wonderful and I would love to see it in person.  Check out more of Manfredi’s work.  (via Kim Manfredi)

At first I was drawn to this image because my home town of Denver was highlighted. But upon closer inspection, I found the work of Nicholas Felton quite wonderful. Felton also co-created the fun and popular Daytum site where you can catalog your daily life data.

Check out more of Feltron’s work.

artist Andy Vogt makes some really lovely sculptures out of salvaged wood.  Some of them remind me of landscapes.  I love the geometry in them.  Nice work Andy!

things i dream of…
c’mon…who wouldn’t want a disco ball for a car.  I imagine this works really well in dreary climates…Seattle, Dublin, Boston.  But I can’t imagine people being too happy being blinded by this sucker in sunny cities!
