people 4 smarter cities by IBM

These IBM ads are a smart idea. This is all apart of their "people for smarter cities" campaign.
This makes me happy. Someone had their thinking caps on.





project mighty by Adobe

Hopefully you have heard that Adobe will be moving away from the update to CS7 and creating a subscription-based Creative Cloud. If you had not heard the news, SURPRISE!!! Anyhoo, along with this cloud based creative suite Adobe has "Project Mighty" in the works. Project Mighty is a very cool concept of eliminating pencil and paper and creating directly on a tablet or smart phone. Plenty of companies have tried something similar in the past with not much luck. Adobe doing this make the most sense in my opinion.
 
Ok, I will stop talking about it and just let Adobe explain this super cool tool.



I WANT THIS NOW!!!
This could change the way designers, illustrators, artist, and any creator works. It is so simple and smart it makes me think, why did it take so long to come to this?

pencil art by PEZ

Not much to say other than this art is amazing. The artist PEZ has some amazing hand-skills. He can made pencils do some unbelievable things. Check out some of his work.






There is so much more to see, follow me.

pencil artist Jessica Drenk

By pencil art I do not mean drawing with pencils I mean building organic shapes out of them. Artist Jessica Drenk has taken something as simple as a pencil and made something almost natural looking.





the chromatic typewriter


Wooo! Oooo! Ahhhh!
Think of all the cool paintings you could type with this. This is the Chromatic Typewriter. It is conceptual piece by artist Tyree Callahan. What a great concept!





tech21 & the "magic" goo

The only way to explain the goo is to see the goo.
Set your peepers on this.


My guess is this goo is made of cornstarch and water, mix it something else to make it gummy, and add in some orange dye. BLAM! You are a millionaire! If haven't seen cornstarch and water in action it is true magic, or science whatevers.


Cornstarch and water is the cheapest toy you will ever spend hours with. It can get messy but is not hard to clean once it dries. Tip: You cannot stir in the water. It only makes it expand into a solid. You will bend your spoon silly.

I can totally see this goo working to keep a cell phone safe on the outside depending on how thick the case is. For a few seconds the goo expands to make a dense surface on the top layer and that is how it protects it. Anyhoo, I thought I would share my thoughts of what this magic goo could really be. Hey, maybe one of you can make your own magic cornstarch goo for cash.

If you have any thoughts on what this could be other than the cornstarch and water theory, please share. I would love to learn and hear your thoughts.
