Medium: my favorite new artist.

Via Wooster.

I just didn't want to let him fade back into the internet without archiving him myself. See also the flickr stream. This one from his flickr stream, has gotta be my favorite.

The $60 Cardboard Trashcan

I am excited to start design school so that someone might explain to me how concept always seems to price a product, as opposed to it's material and manufacturing. Such a shame that products conceived in such a populist spirt with star power somehow always get away with this. If this isn't your style than perhaps the $75 foldable version is.

The $100 Laptop

The minds over at the MIT media lab are at it again. Once again with amazing ambition, and matching success....

"What is the $100 Laptop, really?
The $100 Laptop will be a Linux-based, full-color, full-screen laptop, which initially is achieved either by rear projecting the image on a flat screen or by using electronic ink (developed at the MIT Media Lab). In addition, it will be rugged, use innovative power (including wind-up), be WiFi- and cell phone-enabled, and have USB ports galore. Its current specifications are: 500MHz, 1GB, 1 Megapixel. The cost of materials for each laptop is estimated to be approximately $90, which includes the display, as well as the processor and memory, and allows for $10 for contingency or profit."
