Vat19 , self-proclaimed “purveyors of curiously awesome products,” has released a pen that has dispensed with ink and writes with a metal alloy tip, boasting that it lasts a lifetime. As one writes with the pen, it leaves behind a trail of tiny metal “deposits,” which look similar to a pencil in color, but cannot be erased, cannot be smudged, can write upside-down and can even write underwater. The pen never goes dull, though if one desires a sharper tip, they can simply refine the point with sandpaper.

The Boy with His Heart on His Sleeve and the Girl Who Never Tried to Fix Him by Max Andrew Dubinsky I was born with my heart on my sleeve. When the doctor handed me over to my mother he told her to be careful. "He's fragile," he said.
VoiceDraw is a drawing program designed to be controlled using only one's voice. Since no mouse, keyboard or stylus is required, it can be used by people with various forms of motor impairments to express themselves creatively. VoiceDraw is built upon the Vocal Joystick engine in order to process "non-linguistic vocal parameters" in addition to traditional speech recognition for providing continuous and fluid control of the virtual brush. Non-linguistic vocal parameters are voice features that do not correspond to a particular word or phrase in a language, such as changes in loudness, pitch, and vowel quality. In developing the VoiceDraw application, we worked with an "electronic voice painter" named Philip Chavez who has had a spinal cord injury for over 30 years and had been creating artwork using his computer and a speech recognition software for over 15 years. A short video documentary featuring the artist and a mention of our VoiceDraw application can be viewed at this link .
A paper wireframe template in action. In this article, I’ll expound on the tools I use every day to design interfaces and experiences. I’ve spent years trying a variety of tools, and so far, analog tools such as markers, notebooks and paper templates have proved to be the most effective because of their constraints and flexibility.

This tiny but highly sophisticated studio apartment in the East Village of NYC has made us very proud, thanks to JPDA . Not only was it built as a super efficient multi-functional unit but with the use of detailed mill work, the storage capacity was very cleverly executed and resulted in a super stylish studio with a decent amount of floor space. Shouldn’t all NYC dwellers aim to live like this? You decide… A schematic rendering demonstrates a realistic plan for this tiny apartment. Although we’re not too sure how realistic that cubbyhole at the crown of the loft is in a NYC apartment building, the rest of the space makes perfect sense.

When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper. I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep. Stack two sheets of newspaper on top of each other. This will be a two-ply bag for extra sturdiness.
This is a list of notable idioms in the English language . An idiom is a common word or phrase with a culturally understood meaning that differs from what its composite words' denotations would suggest. For example, an English speaker would understand the phrase "kick the bucket" to mean "to die" – as well as to actually kick a bucket. Furthermore, they would understand when each meaning is being used in context. An idiom is not to be confused with other figures of speech such as a metaphor , which invokes an image by use of implicit comparisons ( e.g. , "the man of steel" ); a simile , which invokes an image by use of explicit comparisons ( e.g. , "faster than a speeding bullet" ); and hyperbole , which exaggerates an image beyond truthfulness ( e.g. , like "missed by a mile" ).
