Reckitt Benckiser nappy rash brand Dermodex has launched the Unphotographed Album (O Álbum Nunca Fotografado), in association with Brazilian National Adoption Day (May 25).

A 1940s home gets a modern update with reclaimed materials

Australian studio Porter Architects has sensitively restored and updated a 1940s dwelling in Lake Wendouree, Australia into a modern and light-filled family home. Large windows, contemporary furnishings and finishes breathe new life into the Ballarat property, but the clients and architects were also careful to preserve the home’s original historic elements as well. As a result, recycled and reclaimed materials were used throughout the renovation. Renovations can often be stressful affairs, e...

Centrifugal Force Never Looked So Good

The top toy has remained largely unchanged since antiquity because… why change a good thing?! The Bubble top by Maki is just a little different, however. The collection consists of two distinct designs inspired by the “collision” between two bubbles meeting. This is represented in its mechanized methacrylate material that gives it translucence to view the interior one made from resin. It’s a subtle twist (pun intended) on the design that gives this time-tested toy a fresh new look.Designers: Jor...

This tarp-based wheelbarrow is all kinds of awesome!

Allsop’s Wheeleasy cleverly redesigns the wheelbarrow to be much more than that. Aside from the fact that it folds flat to be stored easily, the Wheeleasy is also great to load things onto, because it spreads flat on the floor. Load grass, hay, rocks, planters, or pretty much anything you want onto its flat vinyl-coated nylon tarpaulin and lift the handles up. The Wheeleasy works exactly like any normal wheelbarrow, but with a flexibility brought about by the tarp that feels potentially game-c...

Man plans to swim the Pacific Ocean to raise awareness for plastic pollution

You’ve heard a lot about the ocean plastic crisis, and may even know a fair amount about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Professional distance swimmer Ben Lecomte aims to offer a fresh, personal perspective on ocean health as he swims 5,500 miles across the Pacific Ocean. Inhabitat caught up with Lecomte just days before he plans to leave for the potentially record-se...

Scientists at the San Diego Zoo find some hope for saving the nearly-extinct northern white rhino

Only two northern white rhinos remain on Earth — two females, Najin and Fatu. But all isn’t lost for the subspecies quite yet — scientists have hatched a scheme to save the rhinos and recently published their findings in a new study revealing preserved cells that could hold enough genetic diversity to seed a viable population. The San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research led the study, published this week in Genome Research, scrutinizing cryopreserved cells stored at the institute’s Fr...
