Technology in Vintage Mode

Posted on May 8th, 2016

 

Old Fashioned Keyboard

 

Absolutely hilarious how we can move forward very rapidly with technology then some genius comes along with a vintage take on it. Will I go out and buy one of these gadgets? Probably not as I already have gadgets up to the yin yang.

The elegant, vintage-style keyboard turns any iPad, tablet, or desktop computer into an old-school mechanical typewriter. No Wite-Out required.

It’s called the Qwerkywriter and is now on sale  in the United Sates for around $349. Sorry fellow oz people. It has not reached our shores yet.

 


More Illustrations Cleverly Reveal the Two Kinds of People There Are in the World

Posted on May 8th, 2016

 

There are two types of people in this world: those who eat the pizza crust and those that leave it on the plate; or, someone who prefers a Kindle while another loves getting lost in the pages of a book. The world is full of these opposing groups of people, and depending on who you ask, they’re either doing things the “right” way or the “wrong” way. Illustrator João Rocha highlights this quirky anomaly with his clever Tumblr called 2 Kinds of People, which shows the tiny ways in which people are different.

Prince, may you rest in peace…

Posted on April 26th, 2016

Prince Prince – (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)

 

PRINCE has died suddenly at the age of 57, just days after his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing so he could be rushed to hospital. Paramedics found the singer unresponsive in the lift of his $13 million Paisley Park compound in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota after they were called to respond to a “male down not breathing”.

While the singer’s cause of death is not yet confirmed, TMZ, who broke the news of his death, say that multiple sources have confirmed he was treated for a drug overdose and not the flu – as his reps had said – when his plane was forced to make an emergency landing six days ago.

“Prince’s private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, hours after he performed in Atlanta,” the website wrote. “At the time his reps said he was battling the flu … something we questioned because his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing.

Superb Kinetic Sculptures by Anthony Howe

Posted on April 26th, 2016

Source: Howe Art

 

 

Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Anthony attended the Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut followed by Cornell University and the Skowhegan School of Sculpture and Painting. He then built a house on a mountaintop in rural New Hampshire and painted watercolors and had several one man shows in Boston. A sense of unease in both the isolation and the subject matter of his paintings resulted in the selling of the house and a move to Manhattan.

 

His new, part time occupation of erecting shelving for the storage of office records resulted in the discovery of a new medium, metal. Further exploration combined with previous interests in the wind and movement led to the making of kinetic wind sculptures. He then strung discarded elevator cables across local rooftops. On those cables he hung his first series of wind powered sculptures. (more…)
