When looking at the hexagonal negative space in chicken wire, you have to wonder: How the heck do they make that? Well, this GIF shows you the gist of it: It took me a few moments of watching it to register that those wire-feeding cylinders are actually splitting in half.
Airline pilots see all kinds of cool stuff which we, riding in the back of the plane, will never get to. Enter Christiaan van Heijst, who's not only a commercial cargo pilot on a Boeing 747, but a photographer as well. Van Heijst brings his camera gear aboard and, once
Following my recent move, I've learned that farms have a unique waste situation that doesn't exist in urban life: While farms are filled with tons of useful buildings, tools and infrastructure, the periphery is often a graveyard of discarded materials and broken machinery. In the city we throw these things

Functional Workwear: A Tradesman Reviews Carhartt vs. Duluth Trading Co. Is it possible for workwear to be overbuilt? We all know clothes are disposable, but it feels a lot better to throw away a garment that you have worn the hell out of and caused to fail, rather than because
Over the summer we wrote about Xometry, an on-demand manufacturing platform (and, full disclosure, a Core77 advertiser) that helps industrial designers get instant quotes. Now Xometry is trying to help out a supplier of theirs, Maritech Machine, whose Florida-based shop was destroyed by Hurricane Michael last week. Following the loss
In last week's "Currently Crowdfunding: Notable Campaigns of the Week" we printed a brief mention of the Herston self-balancing desk lamp, but it's such a kick-ass design that we want to take a closer look at it here. A task lamp is one of the most important things you can
When Punkt released their Jasper-Morrison-designed "dumb phone," above, it sold out instantly. The $295 MP 01 only did two things--make phone calls and send text messages--and in 2016 that was an attractive alternative for those seeking respite from smartphone addiction. Two years later, the phone is either still sold out
Many designers follow a traditional design process, where selecting a factory to manufacture with comes after the design process is completed. Jamie Wolfond and his brand Good Thing, however, choose to put an emphasis on specific materials and production methods at the beginning of the design process, working with factories, manufacturers and outside designers to bring unexpected twists on classic home items to life.
This seems like an industrial design student project that actually got picked up by a manufacturer. It's a coiled beeswax candle made by a company called Candle by the Hour, and it was supposedly "part of the 1600s dating scene. Known as a 'courting candle', protective parents would light one
At a Sotheby's auction this month, Banksy had one of his pieces on offer, mounted in a baroque, self-created frame. After the bidding war ended at a staggering £860,000 (USD $1.1 million), an alarm sounded and the frame revealed a surprising capability. Here's how it went down, followed by footage
Building a retaining wall in the conventional ways is not a trivial matter. So DIYers have come up with an interesting trick: Rather than messing around with mortar, they lay the walls down like Lego pieces, using concrete while it's still in the bag. That's right, the idea is that

Panasonic's Noise-Canceling Office Blinders Wear Space is the antidote to open-plan offices So here's what it's come to: Penny-pinching corporations insist on stuffing us workers into open office plans, which everyone hates. It's impossible to concentrate in a bullpen. Thus Panasonic has invented Wear Space, a pair of noise-canceling headphones
The noise of an internal combustion engine provides important feedback not only for drivers, but for pedestrians. For the vision-impaired pedestrian, the sound a car makes may be the only warning that it is approaching at all. Hence electric cars, which produce no engine noise at all, present a problem.
As I learned during the construction of my dog-fenced run, erecting farm infrastructure is a combination of hard work and clever labor-saving tricks. The fence is 300 feet long, with thirty 4x4 posts set ten feet apart, welded wire stretched between. Sherman, the fellow I hired to put the

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.
Several months ago a gentleman who runs a local maker space invited me to teach some hand tool classes at the space. I was happy to have the discussion, but we got hung up by a central question: How do you get students to the point at which they can
I've pretty much accepted that if I discuss something out loud, ads start popping up for that thing when I go online. If I tell you that I think my phone is listening to me, I sound like a crazy person. So I have no explanation as to how this
This unattributed photo of a stuck off-road motorist has been making the internet rounds. As you can see, the driver has dug a hole, wedged his spare tire in there with his jack and is using it as a winch point to pull himself out. If you're in a situation

I was skeptical when I heard about this--but I "fell" for it. Researchers at Caltech came up with an optical illusion that relies on sound to make you see something that isn't really there. Try it: Did it work on you? Their full description: "Caltech researchers have developed these two
Whether you're an ID student or an independent designer/builder, at some point you might want to create something using marble. But while that material is beautiful, it's pricey, tricky to transport and difficult to work. It would be ideal if you could create your own marble, in whatever form or

I guess if you landed here you are confused. That's okay because it is confusing. Well, at least if you try to look at it from a binary, reductionist, point of view. Let me start by saying that, in my experience product developing, it is never about choosing between one
At ASTRO we look for senior talent who can present a strong point of view via killer visual and verbal skills and set the pace on multiple programs. Send us your strong and diverse portfolio that shows us you address design problems by creating things both beautiful and functional.
Experimental design evolution is a fun thing to watch. I'm talking about that early stage, when multiple unrelated parties are all trying to solve the same problem--but taking wildly different approaches, ranging from clever to cockamamie. One such problem, I've discovered, is how to clean debris out of a high
