German caravan manufacturer Dethleffs unveiled this e.home at the most recent Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf: I saw it and thought, "Holy Cow. Imagine being able to cruise around the country and never have to pay for gas!" My misinformed reaction was further reinforced when I read what the GreenMatters blog
Most of we men have no idea what it feels like to live with the persistent weight of breasts on the front of our torsos. And I couldn't imagine having to play tennis with, say, a fanny pack strapped across my chest. To illustrate what this weight is like, Japanese
Auditorium seating might not sound like a glamorous subcategory of furniture design, but when it's done right, it really stands out. Previously the neatest system we'd ever seen was the Genya system, designed by Dante Bonuccelli and produced by Italian manufacturer Lamm. Another nifty system is Ziba's Jumpseat Auditorium Seating,

To an Olympian, it must feel like a version of Freshman Orientation where everyone is super physically-fit: For roughly two weeks they'll stay in a purpose-built dorm-like Olympic Village, meeting (and frequently hooking up with) fellow athletes from around the world. Entertainment and training facilities are provided; there are gyms,
For the past 14 years, Jon Wye's eponymous company has been designing and manufacturing belts, dog collars and other leather goods in Washington DC. Often featuring original artwork from freelance artists around the country, his eye-catching products attract an international audience of people who live life on the quirkier side. Wye's rise to success wasn't easy, though. The self-taught businessman spent years developing sales and marketing skills to match his design ones, all while living at ho
I'm curious about the design of the Olympic Village's facilities in Pyeongchang. Still working on it but just came across this footage of the robots wandering around there and had to share: I love that it looks like a rice cooker; I expect the top to pop open and
Years ago as a freelancer, I was working on a countertop pump bottle for a client. I'd observed that in my own home, the liquid soap pump bottle on my bathroom sink left a dirty ring beneath it; this was because water from your wet hands slowly dripped down the

Responding to our auto design sketch challenge to complete an unusual pickup truck from Preston Tucker's archives, industrial designer Eric Strebel went the extra mile and produced a narrated video on his process.

If you've been watching the Olympics in a bar with the sound off, or catching snippets on your phone, you may have been puzzled by this sight: After each event's conclusion, the three winners line up in the snow, and are very ceremoniously handed…a small stuffed animal. No medals are

I typically take my dogs out for their first walk well before most people wake up. So we pass a lot of shuttered storefronts. Although NYC's crime rates have dropped precipitously in the past several decades, rolling security shutters are a must for storefronts; when the Michael Kors store was
2018 marks a new year in materials. Last year saw significant high-tech advances as super-materials such as graphene take one step closer to becoming a commercial reality and also meaningful explorations of craft in a contemporary context – Luzie Deubel's Tannin Coat made from paper waterproofed using an ancient Japanese

Countries with competitive ski teams have something like a Formula One pit crew for their skiers. Teams of technicians apply different types of waxes, powders and chemicals to the bottom of skis to compensate for ever-changing snow conditions, all seeking the perfect balance between grip and glide.

Yesterday, Olympic snowboarding fans again witnessed an awesome spectacle: Two frontrunners going at it, the U.S.A.'s veteran rider Shaun White versus Japan's incredible Ayumu Hirano. Hirano appears to have been born strapped into a snowboard; Burton has been sponsoring him since he was in the 4th grade. Now just 19

Last night Olympic snowboarding fans were treated to a thrilling spectacle: America's 17-year-old phenom, Chloe Kim, crushing her final run with a 98.25 and gaining the gold medal. But before I get to that yes, we're a design blog, so let's go over how halfpipes are made. DesignThe 2018
There's a line in the first Thor movie where the titular character suggests that what humans call "magic," Asgardians call "science." The notion being that both are unseen forces, and bridging the two requires advancing and applying knowledge. We have a lot of technology today that would have seemed like
I feel that every Boston Dynamics robot demonstration prompts the same sequence of reactions in the viewer: 1. Hey, look at this thing! 2. It's kinda nifty, even cute. 3. WHOA.4. That was supremely creepy. The video has also demonstrated that the SpotMini robot has better manners than most New Yorkers.
So I'm eating lunch at the bar and watching the Olympics when these two Startup Bros walk in. Though the bar's empty they sit down right next to me (of course) and start running their yaps, going off on speed-skating: "God, that looks like it doesn't take any effort at

On Saturday I was lucky enough to watch footage of the amazing drone display aired during the Olympics opening ceremony. Coordinated by Intel, 1,218 drones performed a lightshow--pre-recorded rather than conducted live, due to logistical issues--and it was posted to Vimeo for those who missed the live broadcast. Sadly, the
Remember those police barricades I wrote about earlier? The Parks & Recreation employees who maintain this park on the Lower East Side's Chrystie Street have snagged a few. Someone has removed the gates that seal off this fenced-in soccer field, which are usually locked at night. With the gates gone,
I'm typically not a fan of when people take someone else's videos and make a supercut from the clips, but at least they credited the guy here and are showing off his excellent work. Samuel Mamias is a math teacher in France. And I don't know how he's done this
