Can you imagine this? Amazon has introduced a new kind of store, with no lines and no checkout. You just grab your items and go, and your groceries will be charged automatically! For now, only Amazon employees can shop in the new Seattle store, but they plan to open the store to the public early next year. Read more about it here!
This looks amazing! The super talented calligrapher Seb Lester, shows us how he creates a doodle on iPad Pro with Apple Pencil. This is actually an app called Amaziograph: it applies symmetry to everything you draw. Like this doily-looking doodle in the video.
Making Weather is an amazing project by Richard Clarkson in collaboration with Crealev. A floating thunder cloud that levitates with the help of magnetic components embedded into the base and into the cloud itself. It also has an inbuilt bluetooth speaker and sound reactive LED lights for realistic thunder effects! Not yet available as a commercial product, but they are working on it…
I love playing around with my phone’s camera and I always wanted to try a time-lapse video. But for that, you need a tripod and even if you have a tripod, it has to be flexible and small enough to have it with you in your bag, and most importantly to remember to take it in the first place! So, I love this Pocket Tripod idea a lot, because you can always carry with you. Problem solved!
When you look closely, it looks like a classic Rembrandt painting that maybe you haven’t seen before. You can’t imagine it was actually created with 3D printers by a team of data analysts, developers and art historians.
The painting, called the “Next Rembrandt” was developed by the Amsterdam-based advertising agency J Walter Thompson for its client ING Bank. First they gathered data from all of Rembrandt’s paintings that were then analyzed with a unique software and facial recognition algorithm. Based on this data, new features were generated and a two-dimensional image of a person was created. The final painting was realized after the data was fed to a 3D printer, which released different layers of ink onto a canvas to recreate the painting texture similar to a real Rembrandt.
Dacuda is a mini wireless scanner that lets you scan anything, anywhere and sends an image to your phone or computer in real time. The scanned image is high-res and probably much clearer than a picture from your phone. You can even open and edit the scanned text in Word. Super useful for designers! It’s already on my wish list.
