Here's a great example of an architect becoming enamored of a new, flashy concept while failing to consider real-world behaviors. In 1881, architect William H. Brown patented the following design: That's the plan and elevation views of a rotating jail. The circle contains eight pie-shaped jail cells and there's only
Camera manufacturer Leica was formed nearly a hundred years ago, but their factory looks like it was built 100 years in the future. They've released a video inside their Wetzlar factory that was supposed to draw attention to their cameras, but instead we were stunned by the gleaming, pristine environment
Sole Stacks was founded out of a love of shoes and a need to create a better alternative for shoe storage and display. We're a two man team made of myself, with a background in footwear design, and my partner Demont Campbell, with a background in architecture. The shoe displays
Anyone familiar with the woes of freelancing knows that hourly time tracking can be a genuine hassle. While it's true that many common software programs for personal accounting are trying to tackle this with digital solutions, it can still at times feel difficult to accurately track your time on the
For decades we've seen the military develop expensive technology—radar, GPS, microwaves—that trickled down to the consumer sector and became affordable.

Old-school periscopes have been

Homeless people need help, and in New York City they are not getting it. Our homeless population has exploded in recent years; last year the number hit a record-breaking 60,000.

It is the first, sensor-rich, novel physical interaction medium in the form of fabric piano, developed by using both common and smart textile-based materials.

Shaving has been around for a long time. In the 4th Century B.C. Alexander the Great, an early proponent of shaving, ordered his troops to do it.

I'm a little surprised that this story isn't getting more press. We've learned that not only can ultrasound be used to hack smartphones, but apparently it may have been weaponized and used in a series of attacks that authorities are at a loss to explain. As the Associated Press reports,

Looks like we officially have a trend on our hands: Retro-Electric? We saw both Volkswagen and Jaguar reinvigorating classic automotive designs with electric powerplants, and now Honda's dipping their foot in the pool as well. Their compact Urban EV, unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, bears a striking resemblance to
I've just released a new course at The Hand Tool School called Orientation. Its the result of running the school for more than 7 years and learning how new woodworkers absorb information and what questions they have right out of the gate that hold them back. This semester assumes nothing,
A Collection of Channels is a series highlighting channels we're paying attention to on Are.na. Interface focuses on channels related to the place at which independent and often unrelated systems meet and act on or communicate with each other.
One of the first signs of fetal wellbeing is mother's perception of movements.

Steven M. Johnson's "Patent Depending" series of inventions range from social commentary to plain ol' bizarre, and they always give us a laugh. So we've contracted him to let us publish one every week.
Picture, in your mind, a homicide detective. Now picture a kindergarten teacher. I'm guessing you imagined the first person as male, and the second as female. Based on direct experience or what we've seen on TV, we all have certain stereotypes about which genders work in which occupations. But what

A research team from Princeton University, and a separate research team at China's Zhejiang University, have both come to the same unnerving conclusion: It's possible to hack into voice-assistant-equipped devices, like a smartphone, a digital home assistant and even a car, by using ultrasonic commands that the human ear can't
