Star Wars fans: You have to see this animated ASCII remake of Episode IV

It was 1997 when Simon Jansen started his remake of the first Star Wars film -- Episode IV - A New Hope -- as an ASCII animation (or "asciimation," as he coined it). It was in 2015 when the dedicated New Zealand Star Wars fan added the last scene. That's right, it's not finished yet. In fact, it's only about 40 percent complete. Tedium reports: For reasons that are a mystery even to himself, Simon Jansen began creating individual frames of A New Hope after a chain of joke emails. Though not...

A Friendly and Fun, Fan!

As I’ve mentioned previously, playful design is a style of design which I love, especially when it takes a rather mundane design and puts a fun spin on it, and this design definitely does this! The designers took the rather uninteresting fan and gave it a fun and friendly personality.The fan replaces the head of the pet, and the smooth oscillation brings an element of life and character to the ‘animal’. What makes this product so usable is the versatility of it, not only does it make for a great...

Traeger’s wi-fi connected grill is delicious overkill

 As a fan of both meat and fire, the Traeger Timberline 850 hits right in my rib zone. This powerful – and expensive – smoking grill is more like an outdoor oven than the chintzy charcoal or gas grill you’ve been using and the unique pellet system adds flavor, sear, and smoke to your hearty cuts of whatever.

A ‘fanta’stic fruity fan!

The Creamsicle’s inspiration is pretty apparent. Its warm orange tones and the way the blades orient themselves around the rim rather than the hub creates a negative space that gives it a citrus-y feeling. While the fan itself is a hubless fan with a design language that’s familiar because of Dyson’s work in the area… its blade design steals the show with its refreshing, fun, tangerine nature. It almost makes the fan itself look cool and refreshing like a glass of Fanta or Tang. Perhaps that per...

This Fan Makes Cooling Down a Breeze

It might look like your average floor fan, but the 3D Circulating Fan is anything but. A thoughtful relocation of its motor makes all the difference! Inclined at a 135° vertical angle, the motor is affixed in such a way that it makes it possible for the fan to sway with a much larger range of motion. In fact, it can be positioned in almost any direction but straight down. More importantly, it can swivel back and forth to direct air across a much larger area, putting its circulation capability ...

Speaking to the Soul: Are You a Fan or a Follower

by Linda McMillan   Acts 1:6-14   QUICK! When I say Elijah what do you think of? If you said that he was the champion of Yahweh who brought down fire from the heavens, you’d be correct. And if you said that he raised a man from the dead, you’d be right again. If you said that he founded a school of prophets, was fed by ravens, or hid in a cave, you’d still be right. You could say a thousand amazing things about Elijah and be correct. But, those are not the things you first thought of are they? O...

A New Spin on the Fan

Ceiling fans do a great job of circulating cool air during the summer and moving hot air that has risen during the winter.
