DIY: Pallet sofa Thank you so much for your input on my flea market find yesterday. I appreciate your thoughts, and I will absolutely think twice before I paint it.

Tangeez - Tangible Lights by Emily Webster & Mustafa Bagdatli "Tangeez are wonderful building blocks of light. The magnetic click and the translucent colors are incredibly satisfying. They're continually offering new combinations, and they're impossible to put down. I want a whole wall of them." These “physical pixels” create a tactile, interactive and social experience that allows you to hold and control light. Tangeez combine red, green and blue light to create a spectrum of colors that change depending on how you stack them. The more you change and rearrange, the more colors you will see.

BUY A HUGE FRESNEL LENS GREEN POWER SCIENCE DAN ROJAS DENISE ROJAS SOLAR STIRLING ENGINES FRESNEL LENS PARABOLIC MIRROR Goethe on the Psychology of Color and Emotion Color is an essential part of how we experience the world, both biologically and culturally. One of the earliest formal explorations of color theory came from an unlikely source — the German poet, artist, and politician Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who in 1810 published Theory of Colors (public library; public domain), his treatise on the nature, function, and psychology of colors. Though the work was dismissed by a large portion of the scientific community, it remained of intense interest to a cohort of prominent philosophers and physicists, including Arthur Schopenhauer, Kurt Gödel, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. One of Goethe’s most radical points was a refutation of Newton’s ideas about the color spectrum, suggesting instead that darkness is an active ingredient rather than the mere passive absence of light. YELLOWThis is the color nearest the light. It appears on the slightest mitigation of light, whether by semi-transparent mediums or faint reflection from white surfaces.

Wooden Airplane NOTE: I'm not giving any specific measurements, because everybody has his own taste in design, so everyone will probably make it a little bigger or smaller anyway... For my airplane I used the following materials: (ofcourse you can improvise according to what you have lying around) - 1 piece of wood for the body (can be 1 solid piece or built up with layers of MDF) - some smaller, thinner pieces of wood or MDF or triplex for the wings and tail - 2 ice cream sticks for the propellors - 1 round wooden stick for the nose - a small piece of iron wire or paperclip for the axle of the propellors And the tools I used to make it: - saw (either a machine or handsaw) - sanding paper (or machine if you have access to one) - drill (using a nail and pulling it out also works) - wire cutter - woodglue

Understand color theory with these 7 facts - = Designer Blog Color is everywhere – in nature, in cities, in stores, online. We’re so used to it we often don’t notice it’s even there, until we suddenly come across a black and white movie on TV. Then we remember how good it is that we have such a colorful world. For that reason alone, if not for improving your design skill set, knowing how color works is a good thing to do. So let’s dive in! 1. Might sound strange but it’s true. Color is created only when our brain tries to make sense from light signals it receives from the outer world. Deprived of color, our world would probably look like a scene from Matrix.
