Linx: A Connector That Turns Drinking Straws Into An Infinite Building System

He settled on straws as a building material, because they are mostly filled with air. In order to hold those straws together, he invented Link, a custom connector that transmogrifies the simple drinking straw into a 21st-century Tinkertoy. The ingenious connectors can be used flat to create intricate surfaces, or they can be snapped together to create 3-D star shapes.

Though the most exciting part of Linx are the formal possibilities ("It will allow me to realize monumental space filling structures," says Martinez), as much attention was paid to the logistics as to the final product. "Our main concern was to design a shape that would be cheap to produce despite its formal complexity," he says. After a series of prototypes, Martinez settled on the design you see here. [Martinez is running a Kickstarter campaign to bring Linx to market.] Making Crowdfunding Legal for Entrepreneurs.

There have been a number of brief summaries floating around the web, but they all miss points that we believe are important – this bill is simply very long and detailed. Instead of a summary, we chose to provide you with a comprehensive look at Title III of the JOBS Bill, in plain English. Its long, but if you can hang in there you’ll be an expert on the new crowdfunding legislation and will most certainly win friends and influence people.

Festival de Ideias 2012 - Uma plataforma para unir ideias. The World's First Commercial 3-D Chocolate Printer Is On Sale. Last year, a clutch of researchers at Britain’s University of Exeter developed the first 3-D–ever chocolate printer--and the world rejoiced.

The World's First Commercial 3-D Chocolate Printer Is On Sale

The device, which the team called ChocALM for Chocolate Additive Layer Manufacturing, uses the principles of rapid prototyping to layer molten chocolate, rather than plastic, into any shape imaginable without a mold. When we reported the story on Co.Design, an eager reader had this question, “Where, when and will this be available in the US?”

The wait is over: Dr. Liang Hao, the head of the operation, has spun off a business to offer his Choc Creator printers for pre-order. Before you get too excited: The price of the machine is roughly $3,300 (30% of that secures your order; the rest is billed once your printer ships, within 9–12 weeks after your deposit is received).

Livro Design Thinking. UI Genius: CityMaps Uses Brand Logos To Make Maps More Useable. In 2009, an Oscar-nominated short called Logorama spent 16 minutes breaking down our entire society into logos and trademarks.

UI Genius: CityMaps Uses Brand Logos To Make Maps More Useable

It was fantastic satire. But now someone has pretty much done the same thing in real life. CityMaps is a view of New York City, Austin, and San Francisco through its logos alone. Rather than using satellite images, Street View, or legends for schools and restaurants, the map uses branding in its purest form--along with offers for all sorts of corresponding coupons--to help you discover somewhere you’d like to go. To be honest, it’s a relatively cold, commercial way to look at a city. The only problem is, hidden gems actually fare a lot worse in their logo-based map than the big businesses.

That criticism aside, CityMaps is extraordinarily easy to read. Logorama If you want to try it out for yourself, CityMaps is online. Download it here. Crowdbusiness: quanto gira em um marketplace?

Instaprint - The location based photo booth for Instagram by BREAKFAST

By setting Instaprint to look out for specific locations or hashtags, any Instagram tagged appropriately will automatically be printed out on inkless paper. Get one for your next party, event, wedding, fiesta.... Instaprint was invented in the spring of 2011 by our small company called BREAKFAST. Over the past year our prototype devices have been seen at events such as store openings, product launches, a variety of different parties and events including The Grammys and Lady Gaga concerts. Going from prototype to consumer product is a massive step, and is something BREAKFAST has been working on for almost a year. We're really psyched to try and make this happen, and we hope you'll help us reach our goal. Rather than dealing with ink cartridges that constantly need replacement, Instaprint uses an inkless technology where all color is pulled right from the paper itself.

WEICHE WU: The Weight Recorder

The human body records something which might be reflected on the weight changes. The idea of the project is collecting a person's weight change to look back on the passing life. The scale makes a mark without any statistical number every time when you using it. After a while, then you can read the data that the scale has made, then you can see how it changes in a graphic way. At the same time, it could record some specific events. Scenarios For general use in a family (1) The graph can be separated into several parts as different ranges of family members’ weight. For a pregnant mother (2) This graph takes down the data of a pregnant woman, which might gain sharply in months and drop dramatically in one day. For specific events (3) Some times people use a scale as some un-purposed usages, for instance, weighing luggages before traveling. ESPN Starts Opening The Doors To Its Data With Developer Center, First API Program. Geeks and sports together?

ESPN Starts Opening The Doors To Its Data With Developer Center, First API Program

It’s a beautiful thing. Well, at least that’s what ESPN is hoping with the announcement of its brand, spanking new Developer Center, which marks the first time that it will open its doors to third-party developers and provide access to its enormous array of editorial content, stats, and other data. As Y Combinator Founder Paul Graham tweeted recently, APIs are self-serve business development. Many startups are catching on to the business development catalyst that APIs can be, but certainly few would say that ESPN, the self-tagged “world leader in sports,” needs as much help in that department as the many startups out there just trying to get off the ground.

That being said, this marks a big step forward for ESPN, and all those entrepreneurs and developers who have been itching to gain access to ESPN’s content. The launch of the Developer Center, Jason Guenther, Vice President of ESPN Digital Media Technology, tell us, is the culmination of 7-months of effort.

Ten thousand people need bone marrow transplants each year to fight life-threatening diseases, but only half of them get one. “Bone marrow donation is a numbers game, and right now the numbers are not working in our favor,” says Graham Douglas. Ten years ago, Douglas' brother was lucky to beat leukemia after finding a donor match for a bone marrow transplant. Now Douglas wants to make it easier for others by tweaking the odds. Ponder the stakes: Matches are based on genetics. The solution is more donors, but getting more people to go through the screening procedure requires creative thinking. “I wanted to make it as fucking simple as possible to do something good,” he says. He pitched the idea to every adhesive bandage company he could find, but without contacts in the industry, his emails were lost in comment boxes on big company websites.

Perhaps you don’t need an app to help you regret Sizzler or your other guilty pleasure. If you’re a foursquare user who wants some gentle encouragement to check in to healthy venues, there’s a new app to check out. But unless you spend a lot of time at parks and gyms, be prepared to be a bit discouraged. Fitsquare uses the foursquare API to track your check-ins and apply points based on the category of the venue. Go to the gym and it’s nine points (more points are good). A pub will bring you down four points. The app is actually a research project by Samuel Jonathan Smith, a Computer Science student at the University of Lincoln in England.

Sam is currently looking for volunteer participants, anybody who uses foursquare on a regular basis is more than welcome to sign up. In addition to using foursquare, the app also uses the Twitter API to send encouragement and score notices. My score has dipped into the -400 territory and appears to be on a downward trajectory.
