Telescopic Text © Joe Davis 2008 The Abacus Bracelet | HaHa Bird Hey, hipsters! So that 1980s calculator wristwatch you’re wearing isn’t retro enough for you anymore? Time to go waaaaay back in time with your wrist-worn calculating devices, all the way to the abacus. The bracelet is made from layers of bubinga veneer, glued around a form one layer at a time. The first step was to make a form for the bracelet. To make the bracelet I spread some glue on a strip of veneer, wrapped it around the form with the glue side out, then wrapped another strip around it. My first attempt (this project wasn’t successful until the third try) had indentations in the wood from the clamps, so on later attempts I put a layer of brass sheet around the wood to spread the pressure of the clamps. Once I had all 7 layers finished I drilled holes through the wood for the rods that the beads would slide on. For my third try I realized I could make some channels for the rod before I glued on later layers. With everything roughed in, I drilled the pilot holes to size.
The 15 Best Miramax Films Today, the indie world and the film world at large lost a giant in the field, watching Disney close the doors and turn the lights off on Miramax. As sad a day like today is, and as uncertain as the future is, we can still hold on to the memories. Most of them are now on Blu-ray. Without further tears in our eyes, we’d like to remember Miramax for their 15 Best Films. If you’re like me and Rob Hunter, your rental queue is already full. 15.

The Pitch: You probably haven’t seen this odd and creepy little flick, but if you have consider yourself one of the lucky few. 13.

bomomo 152. ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS: The science all-stars poster So I originally just planned to do a poster featuring Newton’s famous quote along with the top 10 scientists in history. As I kept reading about all these great people, I kept adding more and more characters until it spiralled into the 47 people you see above. There’s no real criteria I had when choosing people, and being just a science fan and not an actual scientist, I’m sure I’m missing some important figures. UPDATE: I’ve updated the poster with five additional scientists, chosen from your suggestions:Ada Lovelace (1815-1852): Mathematician and world’s first computer programmer.Gregor Mendel (1822-1884): The father of genetics.Dmitri Mendeleev (1834-1907): Chemist and inventor of the Periodic Table of Elements.Lise Meitner (1878 -1968): Helped split the atom. It’s now also available to BUY AS A POSTER, including a white variant version! Democritus (460-370BC): Father of science. Archimedes (287BC-212BC): Antiquity’s greatest mathematician, scientist and all-round genius.
