How to Hide a Forbidden Image in Plain Sight: Anamorphic Cylinders - Core77 - 22-07-2014

Charles Edward Stuart, colloquially referred to as Bonnie Prince Charlie, fomented the Jacobite uprising of 1745 in an effort to seize the British throne. Charlie's Scottish troops were defeated in battle a year later and he fled to France. In the brutal English crackdown that ensued, Scottish households found to contain a portrait of Bonnie Prince Charlie were in for trouble, so former supporters interested in surviving got rid of them. But not all of them. One artist used a clever technique to secretly hide a portrait of BPC in plain...

Gothscreenshots: The Blog That Brought You the Most Depressing Digital Error Screens is Now Dressing You in Them - Core77 - 22-07-2014

The fact that Soug Wen uses that adorable little shrugging smiley in his tagline for Gothscreenshots might be my favorite thing of the month—the actual apparel collection coming in as a close second. What's so special about this series of graphic tees and accessories? Well, their patterns are based solely on those hated icons we unfortunately see way too often on our computers. In fact, I think I've seen at least three of them in the time it's taken me to write this post. For...

How to Improve the Audio Quality of Vinyl Records with Wood Glue - Core77 - 22-07-2014

One of the first things you learn in the ID shop at design school: Wood glue is for joining wood, welding is great for joining metal, acetone is the thing for fusing plastics together. But when you need to attach one of these materials to another, you've got to switch over to hard fasteners or something more clever, since wood glue won't stick to plastics, et cetera. While that's occasionally a hassle for building multimaterial objects, record lovers have figured out that wood glue not sticking to plastic provides a huge benefit: You can use wood...

Eric Brunt's Flux Snowshoes Transform With Each Step - Core77 - 22-07-2014

I love seeing this kind of nuts-and-bolts industrial design. Seattle-based designer Eric Brunt observed that what makes snowshoes work is their increased surface area, which enables the wearer to "float" atop the surface. But that increased surface area also means that the wearer has to walk like s/he's in a Monty Python sketch. What if, Brunt reasoned, the footprint could shrink when lifted, enabling a more natural gait, then grow again when placed back onto the surface? Brunt mocked up a bunch of "kinematic...

Maserati's elegant new Ghibli broadens the brand's appeal - Wallpaper - 22-07-2014

The new Maserati Ghibli feels slightly anachronistic, at first. Here is a car pitched well below the rest of the Maserati range, yet which practically shares its dimensions with the flagship Quattroporte saloon. It also has the same name as one of the marque's most celebrated historic models. So, what role is the Ghibli meant to have? It is very much the spearhead of Maserati's push into new markets and sales. The company has ambitious plans to triple sales within the next few years and the Ghibli is instrumental to this scheme, along with an as-yet-unseen new SUV. This kind of car...

House for Trees: an interactive tour of Vo Trong Nghia Architects' green residence in Ho Chi Minh City - Wallpaper - 22-07-2014

It's no wonder that in one of the world's busiest metropolises, residents are looking to bring green elements to inner-city areas. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, is home to a new family residence by Vo Trong Nghia Architects that aims to address this issue exactly. With only 0.25 per cent of the Vietnamese capital taken up by vegetation, House for Trees offers a welcome alternative, matching high-density living space with a large, tropical forest. Take an interactive tour of House for Trees Working within a tight budget, the architects created a house in what used to be a vacant lot in the...

Spirulina Stations: Superfood Solution to Expensive, Super Food - Core77 - 22-07-2014

A backgrounder for those of you who don't live in Berkeley: Spirulina is a superfood. A superfood, for those who aren't obsessed with nutritional fads, is a food that is off-the-charts rich in vitamins, minerals and other stuff that is obviously yet mysteriously Good For You. Despite their grandiose title, it is a great idea to eat these uncommon comestibles; however, spirulina in particular can be a bit of work to get your hands on. It's traditionally grown in small ponds—historically in a lake system in Chad of all places—and it looks, to those without...

Updating the Portfolio: Artist Renders His Own Childhood Sketches - Core77 - 21-07-2014

If design school served you well, the sketches you were cranking out senior year should've been a damn sight better than your freshman scribbles. As your skills continue to develop, is there anything more painful for a creative than to look back at your early work? Do you save your lame renderings from 2004 for posterity, or junk them because they're no longer representative of your current skillset? Dutch artist Telmo Pieper saved his drawings from childhood—and, amusingly, updated them using the modern-day digital painting skills he presumably did not possess at four years of age....

oPhone: Because Nothing Says 'Thinking of You' More Than a Personalized Scent to Go with That Picture of Your Breakfast - Core77 - 21-07-2014

As if we don't have enough meal sharing on social media as it is. It seems that you can't go more than five seconds on Instagram without scrolling upon some carefully composed food porn, whether it's a homemade dessert or a food truck delicacy. Now, the oPhone Duo promises to add another smelly layer to oversharing in the form of a scent-based system that allows people to send along a customized whiff with their snapshots. With over 300,000 different scents to mix and play with, it's a bit more labor-intensive than choosing between...

Flyn O'Brien's Minimalist Lathr Shaving Set - Core77 - 21-07-2014

I hate shaving, and have always viewed it as a bothersome to-do item rather than a pleasurable manscaping ritual. To some extent this is probably because of the shaving objects I use. Gilette's Mach3 Turbo blades produce a good shave but cost an obscene three-dollars-plus per cartridge, and the Dollar Shave Club two-blade cartridges I recently switched to are affordable, but totally suck. I have half a mind to switch to a straight razor. That would probably be more time-consuming, maintenance-heavy and bloody than I'd like, but if I were to do it, I'd go totally...

Putting the "..k.." in Viral Marketing - Core77 - 21-07-2014

There's nothing I love more than cocky, clickbait-y, ham-fisted, virally-aimed campaigns and content-free content marketing. Well, it's my lucky day, because since last week the pablum hose has been backing up with a flutter of buzz for this plucky start-up campaign. Jordan Bishop wants you to buy his unknown $4.50 products before you know what they are. They are physical objects, there are 24 colors and variants on this theme, and he even worked with two whole designers for a couple of months to make this wacky dream a reality. But beyond that?...

4,000 Photos (and More) Hightlighting Hong Kong's Iconic Neon Sign Culture - Core77 - 21-07-2014

Photo by Leung Ching Ho The bustling scenes of Hong Kong at night wouldn't be complete without the constant glow of its neon-lit streets. This is a sentiment that is not only experienced by those who have made the pilgrimage to the city of 7 million, but also by foreigners who have never set foot within its limits, thanks to countless cinematic references based on and shot within the iridescent city. M+, Hong Kong's new visual culture museum, is sharing the neon art that gives the city its unmatched vibrance. Their online exhibit, "Mobile M+:...

Tools of Design Representation and Conceptual Design Practices, by James Self - Core77 - 21-07-2014

Figure 1: Digital CAD used to communicate form and design aesthetic. All images Courtesy of Younghoon Hwang, UNIST, Korea From thumbnail sketches to low fidelity models and prototypes to test rigs, CAD concept renderings, illustrations, mock-ups and visualizations, designers embody their design intentions using a variety of Tools of Design Representation (TDRs) during conceptual design in an attempt to provide creative solutions to often ill-defined design problems. The industrial designer employs TDRs with two objectives in mind. First, they provide a means to describe, explain and communicate design intentions to others. Second, they are used to...
