Rube Goldberg Machines complete a simple task in the most inefficient way possible.
Music videos have come a long, long way since back when The Buggles and their new wave aesthetic killed the radio star. SSENSE , a luxury retail company based out of Montreal, has recently introduced what they’re billing as the “world’s first interactive shoppable music video.” And yup, it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like. I Think She Ready features Diplo, FKi, and Iggy Azalea all decked out and styled in brands and items carried by the site, while WireWax technology, which enables users to tag videos in essentially the same way they would a Facebook post, makes the "interactive shoppable" part possible. After pressing play, navigating the video is an exercise in trackpad (or mouse) adeptness. Certain ensembles are tagged with text boxes that appear alerting--or imploring--you to “Shop This Look.”

Color printing couldn’t save it. Vertical orientation couldn’t save it.
Are you a designer on a deadline? If you are, then I’m sure you can recall the last time you thought to yourself, “if I had a little more time, I could…” what? Polish that button? Find a better hero image?
Some games come out of nowhere and grab you, shake you around and then vanish. While longevity in a gaming app is a great thing, we can't help but reminisce about those fleeting apps that bring a little moment of magic into a quiet evening. Today's App of the Day might be one of those apps.
A 24-Hour Panorama Of Planet Earth Perhaps ironically, Chris Kotsiopoulos ’ photograph of Earth in a single day is nothing short of unworldly. The Greek astronomer and photographer began with a question: Is it possible to capture the life of planet Earth in 24 hours? With his ambition in one hand and a Canon 550D in the other, Kosiopoulos planted himself atop the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion for 30 straight hours to find out. On December 20, 2010, just hours before sunrise, Kotsiopoulos set his camera on a tripod facing east, capturing the position of the sun every 15 minutes using an intervalometer and astrosolar filter .
