The slimmest instant-camera ever made

The M24.004 (that’s probably a codename) comes with an incredibly sleek design that’s thanks to a few key features. It lays its components out in a way so that they’re space-optimized. The lens is placed the way it is so that the battery can sit behind it, forming the cylindrical volume in the camera, while the printing paper and the basic PCB, the flatter components, fit in the rest of the flat frame. The absence of a screen cuts the thickness (by also reducing the load on the battery), and a h...

"I have for a long time believed that a person reveals at least as much when he reports what he cannot do or has never done."

"I become confused, or even distressed, whenever I find myself among streets or roads that are not arranged in a rectangular grid. ... I have watched few films during my lifetime and hardly any in recent years. ... I cannot recall having gone voluntarily into any art gallery or museum or building said to be of historic interest. I have never worn sunglasses. I have never learned to swim. I have never voluntarily immersed myself in any sea or stream. ... I have never touched any button or switch ...

I’m Dreaming of a Minimalist Christmas

The tradition of the Christmas tree in the house was derived from people bring their plants indoors for the winters to prevent the frost from killing the plants. We still practice this today with the evergreen Christmas Tree, and a closely-knit family studio based out of Slovenia wants to stick to the tradition of having a tree, but amp up its minimalism. Christmas trees are usually an exercise in decadence with baubles, streamers, and gifts galore, but not the Yelka.The Yelka is a minimalist ...
