Meet the Designers Behind the "Ethnically Ambiguous" Bratz DollsEnter a caption (optional)Like the rest of the world we applaud Barbie's new realistic looks, but
Chances are you've seen, sometime in the past few years, this video going around on social media: I never could figure out how they did it. But now Dave Hax, the guy who showed you how to draw a perfect circle, reveals how it's done: Is it me, or is
Wristwatches are the only universally-accepted piece of wearable technology, and it's fascinating to see how far designers can push their boundaries. While the mere timetelling functionality was perfected long ago, modern-day watch designers vie to outdo each other with their "complications," i.e. the sophisticated supporting operations that are going on
Everyone knows that print is dead, but anyone who visits the newsstand regularly has probably noticed that there are an awful lot of good-looking independent magazines that seem to be flourishing in these digital times—titles like Pin-Up (architecture), Apartamento (interiors), and Fantastic Man and The Gentlewoman (men’s and women’s fashion,
In 2005, space nerds everywhere were disappointed when Pluto was ruled a non-planet. Scientific bodies deemed it too small to qualify; you can see its scale versus Earth below, in this exclusive image obtained by Core77. In his most audacious escape attempt yet, notorious drug lord El Chapo Guzman engineered
When Google Glass was announced in 2013, I figured we'd all be wearing them on our heads by 2016. Instead they were canned last year. But as you look around, you'll notice there are plenty of other technological items you can wear on your head, either for on-head usage or
For those of us who are beginner or even intermediate level woodworkers, making a delicate box with a perfect finish is hard enough. Imagine that you get all of that done, and then the real work starts. If you've ever been to Korea, you may have seen some of these
Back in 1927 Tom Blake, a competitive swimmer from Wisconsin, found himself working on an interesting craft project in Hawaii. Introduced to this weird Hawaiian activity which came to be called surfing, which he'd been exposed to through fellow swimmer and surf pioneer Duke Kahanamoku, Blake had spent three years
In recent news, a California man staring into his phone accidentally walked over the edge of a cliff and fell to his death. A week later, a woman in China staring into her phone fell into a canal and drowned. There is also a disturbing video making the rounds on
Retro design is a given with U.S. automakers, who'll gamely mine their archives in an effort to resurrect former glory. But one thing they'd never do is release a re-skinned Mustang or Charger and outfit it with carburators and drum brakes; the technological underpinnings have to be cutting-edge in order
Closing out our year in review, here's a roundup of unusual and captivating ideas to give you some inspiration for the coming year to come. Did we mention the 3,000 liter beer barrel and lava-grilled steaks?
Some of the best doses of creative inspiration come from the random phenomena that humans and nature create. This year we've seen a lot of strange things, a lot of beautiful things, a lot of clever things, and occasionally some that are all three. We'll leave you to decide which
Sometimes we're obligated to give gifts to folks that we don't really like. But with a little ingenuity and holiday sadism, we can even the scales by making those gifts painfully difficult to open. Here's one example (sadly unattributed): Presumably the gift inside is a pair of utility shears. Let's
As we descend into holiday commercialism, folks around the world are towing their kids down to the shopping districts to see the retail store windows. But parents who live in the region of Germany's Neuhausen, near the Czech border, can bring their children to a cooler holiday spectacle: The live
With basic graphic design skills, it's not difficult to create package designs and promotional materials that closely ape the original. Artist Jeff Wysaski puts these skills to good use, creating both, slipping them into stores and documenting them on his Obvious Plant Tumblr. Wysaski's results are always hilarious, and while
Beginning in the '90s, Karim Rashid famously claimed that we touch, on average, some 600 objects a day. Now another industrial designer, London-based Paula Zucotti, has released a project where she seeks to reveal exactly what those objects are. To be clear, Zucotti's project, a photo book entitled Every Thing
For those that haven't seen it, take a look at the elliptical, Philip-Johnson-designed "Lipstick Buiding" in midtown: In design school, one of our professors told us that when the building was designed in the '80s, the structural engineers weren't sure where the stresses would go; elliptical buildings were not a
So Aaron the office lackey comes up to you, asking for the key to the supply closet. You don't want to take the time to finagle that key all the way around the loop of your keyring, do you? Particularly since you clipped your fingernails this morning and prying those
What's the first thing you do when you wake up? I suspect you reach over to the nightstand, grab your phone and see what you've missed during the seven hours you inconsiderately turned your back on the world to be unconscious. My vision is always blurry for the first
Shinobu Kobayashi is a Japanese woodworker based in Australia, currently studying Scandinavian techniques in Sweden. The three-continent background appears to have done him well; working in concert with a master cabinetmaker from Denmark, Kobayashi managed to cut this crazy three-way woodworking joint: According to Kobayashi, this "not popular Japanese joint"
Not all of you reading this are designers, but all of you have workspaces. And we want to see yours! Whether it's a desk, a studio space, a workshop, a laboratory, a kitchen, et cetera. Send us some photos marked with call-outs or annotations explaining your work-related objects in the
Obi is a simple and beautiful device that belies its true function: a pet toy. It sits on a shelf or mantle in your home, and, when activated, it shoots a laser— something most cats (and some dogs) go wild for. Using your iPhone or iPad, you can control the
The edwin wallet takes what we love about the binder clip, and transforms it into a wallet for the modern minimalist – simple, functional, robust, reliable, and contemporary. The name is inspired by Mr. Edwin Baltzley, an avid writer, inventor and father of Louis Baltzley, the inventor of the binder
As I've said time and again, I hate that talented smartphone designers produce beautiful glass rectangles that we have to bury inside bulky protective cases, obscuring the design details they slaved over. I'd much rather the protection was built in from the start. I take no joy in "individualizing" my
Core-fave Extrapolation Factory has teamed up with The Situation Lab to produce their latest caper; 1-888-FUTURES is a new telephone-based delivery service which allows anyone in the US to request a gift from the future, created to order and shipped to their chosen recipient.

We here at Core77 are always on the lookout for things that need designing, in hopes of inspiring you entrepreneurial designers to attack the problem and make yourself some bread. So take a look at this thing, the unwieldily-named Studio 3B 4-Piece USB Bed Lift Set: It's ugly as sin,

In no particular order, the winners are: Jack Fritzjunker / Sophomore / Iowa State University (Industrial Design) Jack's multi-stain background, explanatory call-outs with a sense of humor, and the fact that he
This is the most fun-looking thing I’ve seen all summer, but has one of the world’s worst soundtracks. Please turn your volume down before checking this out: That’s the Tarzan Boat, a “mobile floating water park” used by Navy SEALs for training. Okay, not really. It’s a recreational
Summer's almost over, but mosquitoes still have at least another month to feast on your flesh. Is there anything worse than trying to sleep, then feeling something brush against your ear while you hear that little buzz and start slapping your own head? I tried making
Alex Dodson describes himself as "a technology teacher at a secondary school tasked with inspiring the next generation of designers." We've no idea what he does in the classroom, but we're guessing his sideline business, "Burned by Design," takes care of the "inspiring" part. UK-based Dodson has artistic talent, welding
You simply have to see this. Imagine an Etch-a-Sketch had sex with a lava lamp, and the resultant offspring was raised by adoptive digital clock parents. The result could only be the Ferrolic Display, a wonderfully bizarre time-telling device created by designer Zelf Koelman. Ferrolic from zelfkoelman on Vimeo.
