Items Invented to Make Eating in a Car Easy

19 January 2022 @ 4:00 pm

Eating fast food while sitting in your car is kind of sad, but I still do it. When you're in the middle of nowhere and starving, it's often the only option, with ubiquitous burger joints having COVID-closed dining areas and offering drive-thru only.Unsurprisingly, there's a category of objects designed to ease in-car dining. For starters, this plastic object mates the shape of your cupholder with a French fry container:

The Nasal Ranger: A Tool for Measuring Odors with Precision

19 January 2022 @ 3:00 pm

My college roommate's dad had an unusual and high-paying job: He was blessed with an extraordinary sense of smell, and worked for a major whiskey manufacturer in quality control. His job was to travel to various plants, and use his nose to confirm that each blend would taste exactly like the same blends made at the other plants.Because his nose was his moneymaker, each night he'd suck warm salt water from a Dixie cup up each nostril and spit it out of his mouth. (My roommate told me he'd grown up accustomed to the awful "HHHKKKKK" sound of his dad doing this each night.) Because of this daily salt water regimen, he hadn't had a cold in over 20 years!This invention might've given my roommate's dad a run for his money:

Tattoos for Cars: Japanese Finishing Expert Develops Metal Paint Engraving Technique

19 January 2022 @ 2:00 pm

Automotive finishing expert Takahiko Izawa runs Rohan Izawa Art Design, a car customizer with peerless techniques. Izawa spent over ten years perfecting "IZ METAL," a type of metal paint that he can spray onto a car and actually engrave into.Other finishers can do similar things on small parts of a car, like side mirrors and door handles, that can be chromed and subsequently engraved; however, Izawa eschews this method because it produces a finish that breaks down under UV over time. Izawa's IZ METAL technique, in contrast, not only retains its original finish over time, but al

Local Motors Shuts Down

19 January 2022 @ 1:00 pm

Local Motors, the company that introduced the radical concept of what they called the "co-creation design" of small-batch automobiles, with royalites paid to the designers, has gone out of business.Two years before the emergence of Quirky, a product development platform that also championed co-creation design, Local Motors set up shop in 2007 and began building an online community of designers and design fans. Members submitted automotive designs for the community to vote on for development, and by 2008 they'd chosen their first model: The Rally Fighter, designed by Sangho Kim, who was then a student at Art Center.

A Cleverly Designed Tool (That We Shouldn't Need in the First Place)

18 January 2022 @ 4:00 pm

This has me pretty conflicted. I love a cleverly designed tool, and this one clearly fits the bill, but I am questioning what we are doing as a society that creates the need for this tool.The HydroFlask Flex Strap Customizer was designed to allow you to easily remove the strap on your HydroFlask and replace it with one of a different color. Here's how it works, and you'll see why I call it clever:

Tactile Toy: A Touchable Tamagotchi

18 January 2022 @ 3:00 pm

This strange Japanese amusement device walks the line between innovative and creepy. The Punirines Touchable Digital Pet is, like the original Tamagotchi……a digital pet trapped inside an electronic case. But there's a finger-sized hole in the Punirines' case, so you can insert a digit and "pet" your Punirines. An animation of your finger appears on-screen, and you feel a texture—described as "squishy" in the product copy below—on your fingertip.

17 January 2022 @ 4:00 pm

Mechanical engineer Amy Qian purchased a cabinet-style SawStop table saw, which was loaded into her Honda Element on a pallet by a forklift at the store. When she got home, she then had to figure out how to get the 400-pound unit safely out of the vehicle—by herself.Qian's clever solution utilizes the built environment, two elements she fabricated herself, two tools she had lying around, and some 2x4s:

19 January 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Whether or not you “do” New Year’s resolutions, January is often a time to take inventory and refresh your life.

The 10 biggest design trends you need to know in 2022

11 January 2022 @ 10:00 am

In the past year, trends in innovation and culture have changed more quickly and dramatically than ever before. It’s no surprise, then, that many aspects of design moved in diverse directions. Physical activities like work, education, dating, and shopping have migrated online. The metaverse, a speculative virtual world navigated by our avatars, is moving full steam ahead. (At least brands seem to think so.) The web—and by extension, the way it’s designed—became as much a part of real-life as the physical world. And despite the fact that we know more about the pandemic than before, it’s unlikely that we will return to the “normal” conditions of life and design anytime soon. Certainly not in 2022—it looks like some changes are here to stay. We don’t have a crystal ball to predict how the precarity of our moment will impact web design in the coming year, but we do ha
