3D Portraits Made From Screws These 3D portraits by California-based artist, Andrew Myers are simply fascinating. They have been painstakingly created from thousands of screws. “Most people are drawn to the portraits because they have something different about them (from a distance especially). Seeing them in person is a whole different feel than seeing the photograph. They have a sense of depth that the photo can’t capture.” – Andrew Myers Hat tip to @David Airey / Original Source: My Modern Met Capetown Design Indaba Expo *notcot in design , 20:41 NOTCOT Note: Where would i be without incredible readers like Gillian Benjamin, who emailed in an incredible post submission covering the Capetown Design Indaba that ran from Saturday 23 February to Friday 29 February? (I am extremely impressed, she even created all these beautiful images to go with the post without any prompting!)

Nic Bladen creates delicate casts of local vegetation called Fynbos (fine shrubbery).

I’m not much of a jewelery person, but Tiffany Marx’s rock rings caught my eye. Frauke Stegmann is a graphic designer and ceramicist.

Dot: 360º video capture for the iPhone 4 by Jeff Glasse Hey Kickstarter-onians, Thanks for checking out our project! We call it Dot. It’s a stylish, durable and downright pocketable 360º (panoramic) lens attachment and app for the iPhone 4. What does it do? Dot lets your iPhone capture immersive, fully navigable, panoramic video in real-time - and share with friends on your phone, as well as on Facebook and Twitter, or streamed online using our awesome panoramic video web platform and player. Cool, right? We're excited too. But seriously, our secret beta testers have already had a lot of fun taking it to concerts, the park, on moped rides in Italy, and showing cramped apartments to mothers halfway around the world. So? We haven’t slept much. We’ve spent the past few months researching, designing, prototyping and coding. Let's do it! We’re excited to bring our cutting-edge (read: magical) panoramic technology to a much wider audience – and even more excited to see what you guys will do with it. Thanks for your support.
