Massive 58-inch MultiTouch iPhone Table

I'm still young, so I haven't yet had trouble seeing things on or manipulating my iPhone. Thought, that doesn't mean I wouldn't like a giant 58" version of it as my dining table.

"Table Connect for iPhone is a superb project which makes an exact copy of the iPhone onto a huge 4 feet 10 inch table.  All of the same mulitouch movements (swipe, pinch, etc.) apply.  We have seen some epic DIY furniture before, but nothing comes close to this fully functioning 58″ capacitive multi-touch surface."

The Unbelievable Origami of Eric Joisel

created at: 12/01/2010

created at: 11/03/2010

I always sucked at paper folding. I would, inevitably, get a book/paper combo pack each year for Christmas, and I'd lie down amidst my new toys, trying to take on a simple star or boat. But I always had a hard time translating the step-by-step photos, and my creases were always soft and wrinkly, and could only master the "crumble."

created at: 11/03/2010

So my respect for the work Eric Joisel is unyeilding. The New York Times recently featured Joisel's massive, collection-worthy origami efforts...unfortunately in the obituaries. Mr. Joisel died from lung cancer at 53.

The French artist is featured in the 2008 PBS documentary Between the Folds which I've had in my Netflix queue for months. It's available for… read more

Tattoo Your Furniture

created at: 11/02/2010

Tattoos, tattoos. Some can be amazingly beautiful, and I imagine some of the best and most talented artists and illustrators today make their living in high-end tattoo parlors and salons. These guys have their skills down, with no erasers or undo buttons available.

But they sure are painful, and permanent.

So, we're really digging this collection of tattoo and flash-inspired home decor and… read more
