Robotic Bubbles Will Explore the Ocean Depths
The sea could use a few more bubbles. Robotic ones. That’s at least the thinking of some folks at the Biodesign Institute of Arizona State University, who have come up with a small, spherical robot that can travel underwater in packs numbering in the hundreds.
The “Sensorbots” would be used for exploring for life at deep-ocean thermal vents and they could also autonomously swarm around sudden events such as earthquakes.

Tord Boontje

I recently got a new tattoo using one of the works of a lovely designer called Tord Boontje. I first started to get into his work about a year or so ago.  The design is taken from his “table stories” collection.  This collection is a rich graphic narrative on everyday ceramic plate, bowls and glasses.  

"My intention was to make a special collection of tableware, which is also informal and can be used as everyday ceramics. I created very functional basic shapes that have a very diverse usages."


Just bought a new book by one of my favourite designer/artists.  New Yorks, Brian Donnelly otherwise knows as KAWS. The book is amazing, I never tire of his work. Take a wee look at some of his stuff if you have a free minute.
