Lithium-Ion Batteries: Expecting More (Energy)

Iphone lithium battery Photo by Tyler Lastovich Last year, the Nobel Prize for Chemistry was awarded to three men who have been attributed with the creation of the Lithium-ion battery. "Lithium-ion batteries are used globally to power the portable electronics that we use to communicate, work, study, listen to music and search for knowledge." the Nobel committee said of the battery. The remark speaks to how the lithium-ion battery has, since its invention, altered the potential of design as we k...

Another Example of a Car "Designed to Break in Half" in a Crash: A Tesla Model X

Some years ago there was a much-covered Lamborghini crash in Brooklyn, where a $400,000 Aventador hit a tree and cracked in two:News outlets at the time claimed the car was "designed to break in half" in the event of a crash, to safely dissipate energy away from the passenger cabin. We expressed some doubt--we'd never heard an automotive engineer nor designer tout such a feature--but plenty of readers chimed in to support the theory, along with photos to support it:Well, this month there was ano...

A Look at Kobe Bryant's Helicopter, the Sikorsky S-76B

I was shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter yesterday. I was also surprised to hear that a total of nine people were killed in the ill-fated helicopter. While I'd heard that Bryant took a helicopter from his Orange County home to the Staples Center for games (a medical necessity, according to this GQ interview; a lifetime of injuries makes sitting in L.A. ground traffic unbearable for Bryant), I didn't know what kind of 'copter it was.The cause of the crash w...

Surprise: The Space Force Logo is Not a Rip-Off of the Star Trek Logo

After President Trump Tweeted this on Friday… …the internet erupted with outrage (of course), stating that the new Space Force logo was a rip-off of the StarFleet Command United Federation of Planets logo used in the Star Trek franchise. Here they are side-by-side:The truth isn't so simple. The Space Force logo is an evolution of the Air Force Space Command logo, its predecessor. And as SlashGear points out, that earlier logo was designed way back in 1982:The Starfleet logo everyone's pointi...

A Robot Hand That Uses Acoustic Levitation to Move Objects Without Touching Them

A couple of months ago, we saw UK researchers levitate a 2mm polystyrene bead using ultrasound waves. They then manipulated that bead through space and projected onto it, allowing it to "draw" like a 3D pixel.Now a separate research team at Switzerland's ETH Zurich is also experimenting with this "acoustic levitation" trick, in this case for manipulation. ETH Pioneer Fellow Marcel Schuck has created a robot arm that can grab and transport delicate objects without actually touching them. This co...

How Will Climate Change Impact Our Everyday Life?

As part of the exhibition 2219: Futures Imagined at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore, London-based design studio Superflux has staged a compelling example of what a typical home might look like in the 23rd Century, once the effects of climate change have taken their toll (h/t Inhabitat).

Boycott Brexit Commemorative Medal Over Lack Of Oxford Comma?

“The ‘Brexit’ 50p coin is missing an Oxford comma, and should be boycotted by all literate people,” wrote the novelist Philip Pullman on Twitter, while Times Literary Supplement editor Stig Abell wrote that, while it was “not perhaps the only objection” to the Brexit-celebrating coin, “the lack of a comma after ‘prosperity’ is killing me”. – The Guardian

This animal-inspired tape dispenser is just elephantastic!

Part stationery part pachyderm, the Elefun is just a fun little tape dispenser that pulls inspiration from the elephant’s trunk. In fact, it treads the line with its abstract form and blue color too, not really being obvious about where its inspiration comes from, but taking enough from the shape of the elephant’s trunk for its user to make that association. Is it life-changing? Probably not. Is it spectacular enough to be inducted into MoMA? I doubt it. Is it a fun exercise that combines creati...

Outcry Over “American Dirt” Shows What’s Wrong With The American Publishing Business

The clumsy, ill-conceived rollout of “American Dirt” illustrates how broken the system is, how myopic it is to hype one book at the expense of others and how unethical it is to allow a gatekeeper like Oprah’s Book Club to wield such power. Imagine a publishing industry that dispensed with hit-making, that used the millions of dollars poured into “American Dirt” to invest more into promoting a greater number and panoply of authors. – The New York Times
