Sorry for the lack of posts (current and future). I have begun my 2 and a half month journey around Europe with ML. I’ll have a travel blog like the one I had in HK, but will have to upload photos at a later date as they’re all in RAW and editing into an uploadable format with intermittent wifi won’t work well as I travel around. If you wish to follow (the probably randomly uploaded, but content in chronological ordered days) it’ll be at http://bineurope.tumblr.com/

that a busy lifestyle can carry and how
sometimes it feels as if it is weighing us
down. To access the speaker, the user
must remove this burden, and search
through the sense of nature (represented
by the bamboo plywood) to find this

Aree by Vedran Erceg | Facebook page
The Aree table was made as a part of a project called «Design in real environment» which was realized at the School of Design’s degree studies in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Trades and Crafts. The primary goal was the incitement of craftsmanship through the design of competitive products but also a long-term affirmation of the importance of designers and craftsmen merging.
A choice of high quality materials such as ash wood and artificial stone Kerrock attained construction quality and visual attractiveness which warrant the product’s high price value and make single production possible until conditions for serial production are met. Two versions of the product have been designed, the dining table and the office table with a hanging cupboard.

We were intrigued by the Phonebloks concept phone that teased the ability to switch out a handset’s components the way most users change ringtones, and now Motorola is putting its resources behind it. In what Motorola calls Project Ara, the advanced Technology and Products group is working with Phonebloks creator Dave Hakkens on an “endoskeleton (endo) and modules.” Announced this evening on the company blog by Paul Eremenko, the company says it’s already “done deep technical work” and is opening the process up to the community and volunteers (aka Ara Scouts, sign up here) to begin designing hardware modules. Its stated goal is to do for hardware what it says Android has done for software: create a vibrant third-party developer ecosystem, lower the barriers to entry, increase the pace of innovation, and substantially compress development timelines.”
