Mechanical flipping plates replace the minute hand in this intriguing watch design!

In Swedish, Strömma means “flow”. And when you read the time on the Strömma watch, it does feel like it’s flowing! Designed by George Turvey, Sophie Kim, and Christian Bourgeois, the Strömma watch takes inspiration from mechanical flip dot displays. Instead of your usual hour and minute hand duo, Strömma has been amped with an intriguing alternative. A series of flipping plates are used to signify the passing minutes! The hour hand was retained, however, without the support of a pivot, it look...

Finally, A Place To Compost Your Body When You're Done With It

If I am to think of composting a human body (not something I typically dwell on), which this year became a legal burial practice in the state of Washington, I imagine a rural scene. A shrouded body in a forest, or in an untouched field perhaps, but always in an unpopulated landscape. A wilderness might be a comforting place to dissolve into the earth but such places are an increasingly rare luxury in our world. While the idea of human-composting in and of itself might evoke uneasiness, how could...

Lenovo made a genius move by building a folding tablet first, and not a folding smartphone

You’ve got to learn to walk before you learn to run. While that handy proverb wasn’t initially crafted for leaps and bounds in technological advancement, it holds exceedingly true for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold – a tablet PC with a flexible folding display.I imagine the first thoughts I had when I saw the ThinkPad X1 Fold were vastly different from Lenovo’s when they first conceptualized this folding beauty. Lenovo’s video talks a lot about design and engineering, about durability, and about ...

Breu Resin Incense

Made from raw and wild plant ingredients, these breu resin incense sticks last for 50 minutes each, but are effective enough to burn a little at a time. Available with different botanical options blended in, our favorite is Palo Santo. The combination offers healing, cleansing and protective qualities with a scent that invokes Southwest US vibes. They come in a set of nine.

How Do You Translate A Standup Comedy Act From Another Language Into English? Ten Comedians Who Do It Explain

“Some grew up functionally bilingual, while others had to learn English from scratch. All overcame linguistic, cultural, and a variety of other hurdles to translate their acts for an English-speaking audience, which can potentially take their act from quiet clubs to packed theaters.

‘Byzantine Pompeii’ Will Be Moved To Make Room For Thessaloniki’s Subway

In 2013, construction of the new metro system for Greece’s second city uncovered, in an unusually well-preserved state, the major commercial crossroads of the town during the Byzantine era. Ever since, arguments have raged over whether to remove the ancient structures and return them after construction is complete, relocate them entirely, try to build around and through them and incorporate them into a subway station, or (expensively) re-route the entire metro line. Last month, Greece’s Central...
