Designing a Successful Tool: The Crucible Scraper

The most successful product we've produced at Crucible Tool is, hands down, our curved card scraper. In less than a year, we've sold thousands of these simple tools all over the world. And we've made a decent profit, too. The tool isn't a copy of anything that was commercially available before. It didn't require any new materials or cutting-edge technology to manufacture. And it is aimed at furniture makers, a craft where the basic hand tools haven't changed for thousands of years.Was the idea f...

CES Survival Guide: How To Properly Take Power Naps in Public

I never thought I would become someone who slept on the floor at trade shows. It's gross, people can steal your stuff, and I will repeat one more time that it's gross. As a general principle, I also believe that naps are a waste of time. As Drake once reiterated, "I don't take naps. Me and the money are way too attached to go and do that." In fact, I used to be the person who took photos of people sleeping at trade shows for entertainment. So what broke me? How did I become the person I've been ...

It Took Almost Five Years to Draw This Incredibly Detailed, Freehand Map of North America

New Zealand-born Anton Thomas drew maps throughout his childhood but he never received any formal training in cartography—or art, for that matter. While working a brief stint as a cook in Montreal in 2012, the self-taught illustrator started to draw a freehand map of North America (where he had backpacked years earlier) on his apartment fridge which had been painted over in white paint to hide unseemly stains. It became the study for an even more ambitious project that he completed in 2019 after...

How to Make Abraham Lincoln's Mysterious Dovetail Mallet

Chris Schoenberg of the Third Coast Craftsman recently set out to recreate Abraham Lincoln's "impossible" mallet and captured the tricky but satisfying process in a detailed video for your viewing pleasure. "Legend has it that Abraham Lincoln designed this way back in the day because he wanted to come up with a way to make a mallet that would never loosen or slide off the handle," Schoenberg explains. "The problem is that the tapered dovetails also make it impossible to put that mallet on the ha...

Judgment Day - The Degrees of Responsibility

Reviewed by Judd Hollander The idea that every person is responsible for their own actions is a basic tenet in most societies. However, when those actions are called into question, uncovering the truth behind them is another matter. Especially when gossip, innuendo and the complete refusal to believe anything but one's own certainty is involved. Such is the case in Ödön von Horváth ’s 1937 drama, Judgment Day. The work being given an absolutely wonderful revival, with a stellar new adaptati...

The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus has a secondary e-ink display on its back, turning it into a Kindle when closed

Practically an iPhone moment for the laptop, the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus is a laptop, notepad, and e-book reader… all in one single device. Now the idea of two screens on one device has been floating around for long. The MacBook with its touch-bar is literally a dual-screen device, and the Asus ZenBook Pro 15 from 2018 flirted with the idea of turning the touchpad into a secondary screen… but the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus has pushed limits by making its secondary screen a decidedly large 10.8-inch e-i...

Meet the Alienware Concept UFO, a handheld Windows 10 gaming device modeled on the Switch

Designed literally to be the Switch of PC Gaming, Alienware debuted their Concept UFO at CES this year. They’ve, however, been very quick to point out that this is still a very nascent concept and may look nothing like the prototype they’re showing… but they’re serious about developing a handheld PC that’s dedicated towards Windows-based gaming.For long, Alienware has been considered one of the oldest and most renowned gaming brands, with laptops and CPUs that cater specifically to the PC Gamer....

The Samsung Sero TV rotates on its axis because people are shooting more vertical videos now

Just to be clear, Instagram or TikTok isn’t launching a streaming service (yet), but they’re definitely leading a phenomenon. Now that smartphone cameras are one of the largest instruments for shooting videos, Instagram and TikTok are a leading force behind people shooting videos in portrait mode. People spend as much, if not more, time watching videos on TikTok as they do on YouTube, Netflix, or Amazon Prime, and Samsung’s begun noticing that. The Sero, which Samsung just debuted at CES 2020,...

Was “Cats” Really So Bad? Guardian Critics Take A Second Look

“One tweet claimed Cats was so bad it must have been made by the dog lobby. As a lifelong cat lover, I don’t regard this film as an insult to cats. Yes, the production is over-CGI’d, but there is Rebel Wilson’s earthiness and James Corden’s comedy; both succeed in playing it for laughs.” – The Guardian

Does Freezing Dance Works In Their Original Form Doom Them?

It’s true that dance history is particularly hard to preserve, and the desire to stay true to a choreographer’s original intention when restaging their work is a valid one. But treating these works like museum pieces can backfire. In the effort to stay painstakingly authentic to an original artist’s work, are we missing some of the spark that made it so exciting when it premiered, and losing the element that made it a classic in the first place? Are we preventing these works from resona...

Strip Down? De-Clutter? The False Promise Of Minimalism

The average American household possesses more than 300,000 items. In the UK, one study found that children have on average 238 toys, but only play with 12 of them on a daily basis. We are addicted to accumulation. The minimalist lifestyle seems like a conscientious way of approaching the world now that we have realised that materialism, accelerating since the industrial revolution, is literally destroying the planet. Yet my gut reaction to Kondo and the Minimalists was that it all seemed...

All Songs Are The Product Of Other Songs (Cue The Copyright Trolls)

The idea that this might be actionable is the new twist. Every song benefits from what preceded it, whether it’s a melodic idea, a lyrical motif, a sung rhythm, a drum texture. A forensic analysis of any song would find all sorts of pre-existing DNA. A copyright troll exploits that, turning inevitable influence into ungenerous and often highly frivolous litigation. – The New York Times

What’s At Stake If Trump Destroys Cultural Sites

Does Trump know what would be lost? Probably not – but he’s hardly the only one. The fact that the country is rarely visited by western tourists is not due to a lack of attractions. With a civilisation dating back 5,000 years, and over 20 Unesco world heritage sites, Iran’s cultural heritage is rich and unique, especially its religious architecture, which displays a mastery of geometry, abstract design and pre-industrial engineering practically unparalleled in civilisation. This is is no...
