Strangest Food Experience! FoodParc in New York City. Absolutely no human interaction needed, just type in your order and they text you when your order is ready. Not so cool however when you put your fried rice in your bag, to have it spill all over a nice new Muji notebook….

Glasgow SECC tunnel, July 2010

Why would anybody design a tunnel that people are to walk through, with the ability to get so hot. Sauna on the way to work….

Lomography 360 Spinner Camera. http://microsites.lomography.com/spinner-360/ Another quirky, fun to use analogue camera from Lomography. The images that are being created don’t stop to amaze me, so I can’t wait to get my hands on one! Anyway, despite my numerous failed attempts at making my own cameras before (the paper pinhole, that ended up having nothing to develop on the film..embarassing…) part of me wants to hack into this concept, using a digital camera, using continuous shutter mode to capture a similar effect -using the base of a tripod stand or some other spinning device. Then I weigh it up and think that Lomoraphy wouldn’t be too happy converting this into digital…more convenient but maybe the fun and adventure would dissapear.

My phone is off : project by Ingrid Zweifel, at Parsons New York. The design sets including stickers, napkins, badges and stamps encourage users toremain in the moment of being with somebody, rather than constantly being on the phone. The napkin in particular, fits into the context environment subtley -ebut also acts as a signal blocker, meaning that the temptation is not even there in case a call comes through.  http://myphoneisoffforyou.com/my%20phone%20is%20off%20for%20you.html
