  • What the Spork

    We all have a complicated relationship with the spork, but isn’t it in some senses kind of iconic? The fact that many of us know what it is, or that it immediately evokes a feeling of the 1990s/early 2000s school lunch means they got some part of their branding right. I think the biggest thing…

  • Netflix

    I think Netflix is a great product beyond just my general addiction to online streaming television. For one, it is ad-free (which makes me much more inclined to engage with it than Hulu). But there is also an ease-of-use component where Netflix outpaces its main competitor, Hulu. If I don’t know what to watch, suggestions…

  • Sous-Vide

    Another young kitchen tool in my artillery, the sous-vide is most impressive for its repurposing of an existing tool. It’s essentially just a coil water heater that has existed for years (and many third world countries use it to heat their buckets of water), but now with precision it can be used to slow-cook meats…

  • WIG: Chipping

    ‘Chipping’ is a brand new technological phenomenon, in which people pay tattoo artists to implant a small chip under the skin between their thumb and index finger. As of now, the capabilities of this RFID tag allow its host to open doors, unlock computers, and pay for goods and services. The chip is still in…

  • WIG: Project Blocks

    Project Bloks is a joint initiative between IDEO and Google Design Lab that creates a tactile way for children to be introduced to and learn the basics of coding. This project takes a digital language and translates it into physical parts that children can more easily digest. These blocks can be rearranged and built much like recognizable toys such as…

  • The Death of Apple

      Here’s a still-popular company that has lost its creative lead in the consumer market: Apple. Apple products have always been unreasonably priced, ever since the launch of its first Ipod. However, we as consumers bit the bullet because it used to guarantee a mix of innovation, quality and reliability in both software and hardware.…

  • Websites Can Be Easy

Along with Squarespace, Wix, WordPress etc, CMS platforms aim to simplify the website building process and provide the end product and the tools all in one single browser page. Cargo Collective stands out among others because…

  • WIG: Bullshit Generator

    enhance bleeding-edge dynamics. map porous networks. re-tool abandoned programs. Looking for some fancy vocabulary for your next architecture design review? The landscape urbanism bullshit generator got you covered. (http://www.ruderal.com/bullshit/bullshit.htm) How it works is that it creates random combinations from 3 pools of architecture jargon – verbs, adjectives, and nouns. There are many versions of these…

  • WIG: Craft – Say goodbye to Lorem Ipsum

    Craft is a plugin developed by invision for sketch and photoshop. This semester I have been testing several different softwares for app prototyping including sketch, invision and Adobe XD.  I found the data and stock features of craft particularly handy. Very often the time when creating mock-ups, content is place-holder. Using the data functionality which automatically…

  • Question Anything “Smart-”

    The Withings Activite is a smartwatch at its simplest. It presents itself as an analog watch, but it has bluetooth capabilities and is able to track heartbeat, step count etc. The Activite does not have a touch screen – nor any digital screen at all. Everything ‘smart’ about it is passive; i.e. it automatically winds…
