The Chromatic Typewriter

The Chromatic Typewriter
Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan modified a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, replacing the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels to create a functional “painting” device called the Chromatic Typewriter. Callahan submitted the beautiful typewriter as part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote. I don’t know how practical painting an image with a color typewriter is, but if Keira Rathbone can do it… (via dark silence in suburbia)

THE COVETED — be stylish Many years ago, my husband and I were at the Vintage Fashion Expo, and while there I thought I would get the “perfect” leopard print coat. You know, that vintage leopard print coat every woman should have in her wardrobe. As I pulled out a leopard print coat which I thought would be the “one” my husband put his hand on my arm, and said, “Nooooooooo. Not that coat.” Another great invention, the Exhaust Air Jack This invention is pretty sweet. It basically uses the air from your exhaust to inflate a big bubble that is strong enough to hold up your car. Once it’s to the right height, just turn off your engine and change your tire. The bubble will stay inflated for hours (if you are really bad at changing a tire).

Unique Steampunk Insects Since the late 1990′s style steampunk is becoming more and more popular, and not only in the literature. Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by enthusiasts into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical “steampunk” style. And often this stylization gives very unexpected results. Like, for example, art works of american sculptor Mike Libby. His studio Insect Lab make robots from dried insects. Laptop sensation: Plantbook Have you ever spilled water on your laptop?

30 Creative Ways to Repurpose & Reuse Old Stuff We all have stuff that no longer serves any purpose around the house, but we still have trouble getting rid of it. Either it’s “still OK”, or “might come in handy” or just holds some sentimental value to it. In extreme cases, this might lead to hoarding, but if you’re creative enough, you can solve the problem by repurposing, upcycling and reusing your old things. Besides serving a purpose (again), repurposed items add this lovely touch of creativity and coziness to the space. Heck, most of the time, upcycled things become even cooler than they originally were. [Read more...]

This ‘People are Awesome‘ style compilation picks out some of the key extreme sports achievements and events of the past year and we think it does a pretty stellar job of summing everything up. On the snowboarding front they’ve included 16 year old Yuki Kadono’s backside triple cork 1440 at the Beijing Air and Style and Travis Rice winning the Red Bull Supernatural. Good to see that they haven’t overlooked Tom Schaar’s first ever 1080 on a skateboard or Trevor Jacob’s first ever double cork/backflip either. Perhaps even more remarkable are some of the things that we somehow missed this year – we’re not quite sure how we failed to catch wind (excuse the pun) of Gary Connery’s parachute-less wingsuit landing. And let’s not forget that dude that practically dropped out of space, breaking world records and the sound barrier in the process.
