This project was brought to us by Rob Jacobs who had a great idea for the world’s first treadmill optimized for use under a stand-up desk. They call it a WalkingPlatform, the Walk-1. Together with the UnSit team we developed this idea from a rough proof of concept to a fully manufactured product giving him the function they wanted and the ability to bring this concept to market.
The folks at Giphy, that stalwart provider of looping cats and people falling down, are getting slyly socially active. Last week the company added a library of over 2,000 GIFs intended to teach words and phrases in American Sign Language. The project might seem like an odd match, given the
Recently, some Google Home owners have been noticing something odd going on with their devices. When asked a typical question one might expect to ask the smart speaker, customers like Bryson Meunier took note of an extra piece of information tacked on to their daily weather report:

How do you add more aesthetic value to a television? You can gussy up the housing to make it pretty, but Yves Béhar and Samsung have taken things a step further and are forging into new UX territory. Their collaboration has yielded The Frame, a new sort of television—and non-television—experience.

It's no secret cannabis consumption is becoming more and more mainstream. Over here in the US, we're seeing laws changing and joints freely blazing. In response to this transition, designers have been able to express their curiosity around the emerging—and quite profitable—market. From designing packaging for edibles to crazy dispensary
VeriFone wanted to use the MX925 unit as a payment terminal for taxis. The problem was, the terminal only had hard line Ethernet, not wireless, connectivity. To bring cellular connection to the terminal, we worked closely with the electronic engineer to add a wireless module. The iO module is a simple plug-in unit that requires no wiring. We also added a USB port for customers to charge their phones and mobile devices. We engineer and manufacture the final product in an aggressive time schedule.
The Geo Home Smart Security Camera was developed with safety and simplicity in mind. We designed this with the intention of creating a smart home technology system that doesn’t look too technological. Seeking ways to simplify the look of a camera device to be suitable for any home, our design deliberately does not stand out as a gadget, but rather an integrated object or sculpture. The contemporary form and styling was inspired by geographic minimalism. Using premium materials such as copper and

Accessible technology tends to lag behind mass market options, but sometimes it's not about demand, it's about taking a risk. The South Korean design startup DOT has been working hard on making braille-enabled smartwatches a reality for over three years. This month their labor (and awards) finally paid off.
To design for the real world requires questioning assumptions. Take flatscreen TVs and how people integrate them into their homes, for instance: In our movie-driven notion of what a modern home looks like, flatscreens are things that live on walls. You could be forgiven for thinking it's only you that

A new page is turning in the thickening book on 3D printed architecture. This time our idealistic concrete fabricators are from Russia's Apis Cor, and their claim to greatness— a residential tiny home printed in 24 hours—debuted this February.

Retro designs have been successful with cars from the VW Bug to the Ford Mustang; but will the nostalgic approach work with a cell phone? HMD Global Oy, the Finnish manufacturer that's licensed the Nokia brand, thinks so. This week they've relaunched Nokia's iconic 3310, which was first designed way
Following a leak earlier this month, all we had was a grainy snippet of video; but now Boston Dynamics has released the full video of Handle, their wheeled, figure-skating, jumping robot. Here it is shown doing a lot more than in the leaked clip: What's significant about this design is
As much as we all dig Capri Sun (don't lie), pouches aren't a great way to enjoy your morning coffee. No heady aroma, not a lot of temperature control. Astronauts aboard low-gravity vessels have traditionally had to make do with the sub-par ergonomics of liquid sacks at tea time, but
TIDAL Music is growing at an exceptional speed and we are searching for an experienced Product Manager to join our growing team in Oslo, Norway. The Product Manager will work closely with our technology & design teams to innovate products from conception to launch. As a Product Manager
Bina Baitel is an artist and designer with an odd take on material. Her work often ranges into the whimsical and fantastic, but this piece feels a bit sinister. The Lash Clock doesn't just remove normal markers for time telling from the clock's face, it adds slowly undulating hair.
"Drones" is a broad term, encompassing both the friendly multirotor type that carry GoPros over snowboarders, and the more menacing UAV type that fires rockets into convoys. The safe kind requires little more than a credit card to acquire, whereas the dangerous kind needs an encrypted satellite uplink and a
Artist Raphael Vangelis has given our familiar and increasingly rare digital waiting signals a hands-on portrait. His animated short "Analogue Loaders" takes on several ubiquitous symbols for loading and injects them into IRL environments using stop motion. Seen in a new locale some might take a moment to identify, and
