pretty genius invention, in my opinion, that could erase the need to make different lenses for different prescriptions.  As inventor Josh Silver puts it, a “tremendous glimpse of the obvious”.

MacBook EnvelopeMacBook Envelope Detail

How many people do you know with laptops now? How many take care of them? Why not help them along with this unisex, modern, well-crafted and low profile laptop case. While you’re at it pick one of for yourself because the price is right AND so is the style. It is also a green product.

Designed by a Brooklyn up and comer, Fern Fiddle Head (also a food), this MacBook “envelope” is a nice alternative to the other foam-like designs out there. It is available on Etsy (if you do not know what Etsy is yet then please follow the link and check it out as it is pretty much one of the coolest and most innovative communities to happen in this decade).

Looking for a new sweet recipe to ease the bitterness of todays headlines?

Try this:

Take several photographs: (An image, especially a positive print, recorded by a camera and reproduced on a photosensitive surface).

Half dozen or so layers: (A single thickness of a material covering a surface or forming an overlying part or segment).

Mix it all up with biota: (The animals, plants, fungi, etc., of a region or period).

Voila, here is your dessert: the ambrosial exhale of stunning works by Doug Fogelson. Now go on and face your day!

LUCYANDBART

LucyandBart is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess described as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. They share a fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression. Unconsciously their work touches upon these themes, however it is not their intention to communicate this. They work in a primitive and limitless way creating future human shapes, blindly discovering low – tech prosthetic ways for human enhancement.

Their work is inspiring in that it shares a completely organic vision still accessible through a pretty package… so to speak. Take a look at the links and you will not be disappointed.
