Bright Blind Gives Windows to the Windowless... →
Windows are great, you can see things out of them, they shed light and they bring the cool breeze to you. Makoto Hirhara’s Bright Blind tries to bring some of these comforts to barren, windowless walls. The Bright Blind hangs on your wall and is constructed from electroluminescent sheets. The light dispersed gives the impression sunlight is creeping in, much like a real blind covered window...

Steampunk MP3 player →
Porkshanks’s “Ambience Enhancer” is a sweet little steampunk MP3 player mod: I bought a pair of vintage Cannonball Empire headphones off Ebay and I disassembled and gutted them. I then transplanted the working parts of a Sony MDR-006 (that I randomly found on the ground at a bus stop 2 days ago!) into them, and viola! Cool looking ‘old’ headphones that work just...

"MC Mechanic" Masterpiece: One Hand Fixes the... →
I just found Shane Willis’s MC Mechanic piece via Joel@BBG. Photographer Shane Willismade this homage to Escher’s Drawing Hands 1948 litho, yet his process included not looking at the original. He wanted to infuse his own style and impression of Escher’s original so did his by memory. I’m inclined to think this looks like Luke’s replacement hand, engaged in peer to...

Enlightenment on OpenMoko! →
The Rasterman, creator of the Enlightenment window manager for Linux, has issued an statement in which he explains that he is currently working at OpenMoko, which will be using E on the near future. But first Rasterman will finish E17, and you can forget that ‘gold look’. He’s completing a redesign of the GUI and it will appear soon!

An easy to create and inexpensive wire ring! I posted this a few years ago on a jewelry forum and people seemed to enjoy it, so I thought it would make a great instructable. I sold a lot of these when I started making jewelry - I called them “Bellybutton Rings” and it was one of my very f… By: totemic
