If Dieter Rams Designed an Xbox: Microsoft's Minimalist Xbox Series S

Microsoft has announced they're releasing a small, slick Xbox variant called the Series S. Designed to be used only for downloadable games, the console itself is tiny, as it no longer requires the hardware necessary to accommodate physical media. And the physical design, as you can see, owes a great debt to Dieter Rams' classic work for Braun: Pre-orders begin on September 22nd, and the $299 device will be available on November 10th.

Should We Be Afraid Of AI?

“Many people were likely stunned to read recently the announcement by Microsoft that AI was proving to be better at reading X-rays than trained radiologists. Most newspaper readers don’t realize how much of their daily paper is now written by AI. That wasn’t supposed to happen; robots were supposed to supplant manual labor jobs, not professional brainwork. Yet here we are: AI is quickly gobbling up entire professions—and those jobs will never come back.” – Scientific American

Today we’ll take a look at some of the basic concepts of typography. We’ll look at what it is, some research behind how it helps us produce meaning, as well as whether you should choose a serif or sans serif font. That way, you can s...
