I’m not sure why, but I find this to be very cool…I think it has something to do with the linearity of the numbers. Nerd brain at work.

If this is the future of biking/backpacks, I want to be there when it happens. How epic is it that you can use LEDs to signal as biker and customize your messages?

Adulthood: Day 1

Today was my first day at work, and it was…’fun’?

It started off quite early (6:30am) because my apartment is yet to be painted and cleaned, so that means commuting from home! The orientation process was actually quite fun, I met a neighbor and got some feedback for my soon to be iPhone4. All fun things. Then on to lunch with the new group and some idling around for the day setting up my cubicle. I have a ‘cube,’ my own cube!

The one upside that was tangible aside from the feeling of ‘holy shit I’m a real life person’ was finding out what I may be working on in the near future. And actually hearing about the other projects was super cool. I’m actually excited to start working, but I don’t think that actually begins until a couple more weeks.

Now for the negative (because isn’t that what you expect from me?). I can’t use Gmail, Facebook (obviously) or Firefox. Some of my favorite and love-hate brands that are part of my daily life. Oh, and I can’t record video (it could be confiscated for monitoring) or take pictures of people without their consent. Or ‘solicit’ for girl scout cookies. 😦

But to make this a compliment sandwich, let’s end on a good note. I got off of work at 5ish, will be meeting the leader of the group in the morning and I get to scan my fingerprints everyday just to get into the building. Mission Impossible, say wha?

I don’t sail, partly because of a melanin condition, but if I did, I would want a boat that looks like this.

Spice Egg Salt n Pepper Shaker by Mike Flache

Let me show you these fantastic toy weapons. Made by designer Shira Nahon for the ever-narrowing line between adults and children. Simplicity both masks and IS the genius in these fantabulous destructors. In this project you will find the Clip Gun, the Beak, the BoomBall, the Rubber, and the OneShot. All of them truly rockin. This set of objects goes by the sound children young and old will make with them: “PIU PIU!”

ClipGun : here’s one you may remember, as the laundry clip on a stick design has been around for quite a few years. I remember wanting something like this when I was about 10 years old, wanting it SO BAD. This one’s a bit more refined, incorporating the clip into the stick. One less ingredient – a designer’s most basic goal.

Beak: What! A paper airplane? No way. This is a stainless STEEL airplane. Made to fly… right into your neighbors eye.

BoomBall: A boomerang-like device which is made of strips of thin, flexible steel. You might remember these strips as “slap bracelets.” When this crazy object makes contact with any other solid object, it curls up into a sphere (if you’re lucky, it ensnares the target object inside!) Very wild.

Rubber: Not THAT kind of rubber. This Rubber is packaged as the rubber sling part of a slingshot only, encouraging the user to find their own perfect bit of tree branch to shoot with.

OneShot: A single metal rod twisted and turned into an ingenious neu-form rubber band shooter. Totally and completely intuitive. So simple, a baby could fire it.

Two of each, please! Thanks. Wee!
