Chiseling your cheeks is still popular among professional makeup artists who've mastered it for red-carpet clients, but it's safe to say that the rest of us have generally toned it down about five notches. Now, the goal is to subtly define your cheekbones for a natural-looking sculpt ...

Attention is not a resource but a way of being alive to the world

'We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom.' Those were the words of the American biologist E O Wilson at the turn of the century. Fastforward to the smartphone era, and it's easy to believe that our mental lives are now more fragmentary and scattered than ever. The 'attention economy' is a phrase that's often used to make sense of what's going on: it puts our attention as a limited resource at the centre of the informational ecosystem, with our various alerts and notifications l...

Need To De-Stress? Floating In Salt Water Might Be The Solution

Imagine floating in outer space. It’s pitch-dark and you’re naked. Three-quarters of your body is submerged in skin-temperature salt water that makes it difficult to tell where your body stops and the water begins. It’s so dark, there’s no perceptible difference between closing your eyes or leaving them open, aside from the slight sting of salt air. For some people, this sense of total blankness is rejuvenating . Others opt to press a button to turn the lights on. This is what floating in a s...

It was also very much more than that. It was the most influential and famous design school that has ev...

Hyundai Elevate: ‘The world’s first walking car’ | Martin Love

It’s still at prototype stage, but the Elevate shows that car designers are thinking on their feetThis ‘quadrupedal’ vehicle may look like a smart shopping trolley ready for a supermarket dash in some distant interstellar community. But, in fact, it’s a full-size, robotic walking car, which Hyundai believes may be helpful in rescue zones when normal vehicles, even the most robust 4x4s, just can’t hack it.It’s called the ‘Elevate’ and by blending technology found in modern electric cars with adva...
