Once a month the Con Edison man comes to my building, buzzes every apartment, and enters each in turn to read the gas meters. It's a pain in the neck because I have to leash my intruder-unfriendly dogs and hold them at bay while he enters. In the San Francisco
Remember the earlier post where I received the tiny battery I ordered in a gargantuan box? Reader Andrew Roberson pointed out that the cause was "on-demand packaging," a practice which the company that provides Staples' fulfillment machinery uses. In any case, here's another lesson about packaging--not for packages you receive,

It sounds like magic: You have a treasured audio recording of, say, a deceased love one. You transform that audio clip into a visual soundwave. A tattoo artist transfers the soundwave into permanent ink on your skin. Then, whenever you want to hear the clip, you "scan" your arm using
Last weekend, DesignMarch 2018 celebrated its 10th anniversary. Over the span of three days, Iceland came together with its fellow Nordic countries to promote and celebrate Icelandic design.

By now you've surely seen the Spike-Jonze-directed video for Apple's HomePod, where a beleaguered NYC office drone's apartment is magically extruded into a colorful wonderland. You may have spotted something odd around the 1:10 mark: That something odd is that you can clearly see, when the table begins to

I'm from New York, so everything in San Francisco looks bizarre to me: The hills, the architecture, the parking meters, the street furniture. A good case in point is this public trash can, spotted on Cortland Street in the Bernal Heights area:
Here's a great piece of physical problem-solving: Let's say you've got the absolutely perfect threaded female part, but the corresponding male part leaves a little something to be desired. You'd like to create your own male part, but it's impossible to measure the interior threading on the female part and
With the world's plastics problem spiraling hopelessly out of control, the least we can do is find ways to re-use disposable plastic items before they go into that landfill forever. It's particularly galling to see all of the plastic in the ocean where it causes harm to aquatic creatures that

adidas recently unveiled a new silhouette called Deerupt, and if you ever had doubts social media could play a significant role in the design process, it's time to think again. If you religiously follow the sneaker world on Instagram, you've probably noticed an overload of images that look almost
During a recent trip to Boston I didn't see any interesting furniture, it was just not that sort of trip. We saw friends, ate, walked around, entertained the kid, and ate some more. We did however, stop at Old South Church and got an eyeful of top class architectural woodworking
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.
I know we're supposed to let go of the past and move into the future, but one thing I'll never be able to give up are manual transmissions. I learned to drive on a stick. I've owned three cars in my life and all were manuals. I no longer own

Of all the rousing successes we've seen on Kickstarter, and we've seen quite a few, this one has taken us most by surprise. It's no multi-tool, no techno-object, no magical transportation device; instead it's a striking and all-natural visual feast by Moreno Monti and Matteo Tranchellini, two photographers who hail
Now that an autonomous car has killed a pedestrian, interested parties are waiting to see what the legal ramifications will be.

For millennia, this is the method we used to get food out of trees: So let's say the crop in question was olives. How would you mechanize the process? You could surely rig up something to shake the tree, but what about picking each and every olive off of the
Yesterday's news that an autonomous Uber killed a woman in Arizona has dealt a blow to the companies banking on autonomous cars. Details of the accident have yet to emerge, but Uber has pulled the plug on their North American testing for now, and the litigation that's sure to follow
In order to push forward in our careers, we often need to expose ourselves to the cold, hard truth and push past common excuses that do nothing but keep our development stagnant. Too often we settle for general career advice that beats around the bush because a) honest advice is
Upon walking into Pier 48 for the World's Fair Nano in San Francisco, the first thing you see are these dual spinning wheels: Called "Spokes," the mesmerizing display was created by artist and engineer Christopher Schardt, a longtime Burning Man contributor who has been creating sculptures since 2000.

After reviewing a number of fantastic submissions from Core77 readers, we've finally chosen the designer who will be spending 3 months in the A/D/O space working on a number of their dream projects. So without further ado, here's a short chat with our chosen resident Julia Liao, who will be working on TKTK throughout her 3 month residency at A/D/O.
Amidst all the techy-tech at the World's Fair Nano in San Francisco was an unassuming display of an anachronistic, but popular, series of objects: Mechanical keyboards. At Kono Mechanical Keyboards' table two self-professed keyboard geeks, one of them Reddit Senior Designer Michael Farrell and the other Kono CEO Andrew Lekashman
In the last entry we looked at the Talon gesture control ring, whose public reception will, we feel, be hamstrung by poor presentation. In contrast we think another smart ring we saw at the World's Fair Nano in San Francisco, called the Motiv Ring, is going to do well for
