Goliath – The Gas Powered Quadcopter

gas-quadcopter I have a small quadcopter that fits in my hand which I enjoy using. To call what I have and this gas-drinking monstrosity by the same name seems wrong, but just as an elephant and a mouse are both animals, they are, on some level, the same thing. On the […]

Functional Printing: James M Bryant Edition

The entrance to my garage opens onto a busy road just round a blind corner. This LED illuminated SLOW sign before the corner flashes whenever the garage door is open. After publishing the article last week with a collection of functional items to print, I received several great emails with interesting functional items in them. I’d love to get some more too! I plan on sharing them fairly regularly. One email stood out though. James Bryant has made many useful […]

Japanese beer maker Kirin has created a solution to the ever-frustrating warm beer. The company’s new frozen foam topping, Ichiban Shibori Frozen Draft, acts as an insulating lid and keeps the drink cold for 30 minutes. The foam is made by cooling the beer to 23 degrees Fahrenheit, while a machine continuously blows air into the mixture. The frothy, creamy result doesn’t water down the beer when it finally melts, and the beverage also is creamier (immaterial, really, as it shouldn’t take anyone 30 minutes to drink a beer).

Ichiban Shibori Frozen Draft is currently available in Tokyo and will launch throughout Japan in May.

 - Furniture Inspiration of the Day

Designer Maarten De Celaer borrowed from science in creating his Mutation Series, whose pieces resemble cell transformations “that have germinated into upholstered mutations because of a chemical or nuclear reaction. Perhaps it’s a virus or bacteria that has grown dramatically out of scale.” The pieces are made by composing patterns with parts of foam spheres that are applied to basic structures. Then the pieces are coated with a rubber or velvet-like finish.

De Celaer’s series is featured at this year’s Milan Design Week.

 - Luxury Bomb Shelter of the Day

Developer Larry Hall is staking his financial future on the Survival Condo, a state-of-the-art bunker under way in Kansas that extends 200 feet underground and will boast a military-grade defense system. Floors can be reserved for $1.75 million. You know, for when the zombie apocalypse comes to fruition.
