Cool Charts Depicting the Evolution of the Alphabet, and the Writing Systems of the World

Learning new things requires both a broad overview of the subject-to-be-studied, and intensive drilling-down in specific areas. Educator and designer Matt Baker found a deficiency in the first area, where more visual aids would be helpful. "I'm what you'd call a visual learner," Baker writes. "I have found that in early grades, visual materials tend to be incorporated often. However, once a person reaches the higher grades, learning becomes almost exclusively based on reading texts and listen...

U.S. Manufacturers Lack Skilled Labor. So Here's a CNC-Training Scholarship

The days of large-scale American manufacturing, with factories employing thousands of workers, are over. But what's truly sad is that the manufacturing jobs that are available here often can't find properly trained workers. According to Deloitte's "The Skills Gap in U.S. Manufacturing" report, produced in conjunction with the Manufacturing Institute, "Over the next decade 3.5 million manufacturing jobs likely need to be filled," but "the skills gap is expected to result in 2 million of those job...

Should Be an ID Student Assignment: Design and Build an Egg-Opening Device

Once upon a time, a standard assignment for first-year industrial design students was to design and build something out of cardboard that would protect an egg inside from being dropped off of a roof.

Anvil Studios, Milwaukee Tool & Western Washington University ID Students Envision the Future of Construction Sites

If you were to imagine the construction site of the future, your vision would likely be filled with robots operating other robots, with almost no humans in sight. However, what if designers instead imagined a construction site where robots and high-tech interconnected tool systems worked together support the efforts of humans, rather than take over their tasks entirely? Western Washington University (in partnership with Anvil Studios and Milwaukee Tool) recently took ten weeks to develop a propo...
