Paint Me Up Scotty.


It was not that long ago at all that we posted some amazing work from Ekaterina Belinskaya, but here some more is yet again.  Yet again this incredible photographer has caused wonder and amazement to the eye with this series of these wildly fantastical shots.  The collection is titled  “Paint Me Up”… Check the method.

Koisea: Japanese Bomber Jackets.


I had someone ask me recently what I wanted for this coming Christmas.  Much to my she-grin, I couldn’t give a straight answer, because I had no idea… Until I saw these incredible Japanese Bomber Jackets over at KoiSea.com. They all, each have an individual style, both mens and women’s.  If you’re looking for something unique, I highly suggest you check them out.

The Japanese Shell Villa.


Shell House Villa is located in the Karuizawa region of Kitasaku, Nagano, Japan. Designed by architecture firm ARTechnic, the concrete villa with a large oval shell shaped structure is built in the middle of the forest.  The structure appears to float above the ground like a spacecraft, with trees growing around it, harmonizing the villa into the landscape.

This 329 square meter (3,541 sq. ft.) house has a central control system that enables all mechanical and electrical equipments to be managed by three buttons. A custom made floor-heating system minimizes the use of heat energy.  Check out the blueprints up top, and more photos of this fantastical villa down below.

The Ripple Effect Tea Table.


According to Korean designers Jeonghwa Seo and Hanna Chung, easterners commonly believe that small changes of an individual person or object can make big impact on the larger society, thus, leading to a modest and totalitarian culture. (Basically, cool little things make us happy.)  This social tendency described as a ‘ripple effect’ was translated here into tea ceremony table.  As part of his graduation project for IM Masters Design Academy Eindhoven, ‘ripple effect tea table’ by Korean industrial designer Jeonghwa Seo in partnership with Hanna Chung is a reflection of eastern mentality towards social relationships.  Ripples are created on the top water layer of the table surface every time the tea cup and saucer are moved by the user.  Through this project, Seo and Chung wanted to emphasize the importance of considering cultural mentality and context as a backdrop to their work. I still have no idea where to buy one though. #SadFace

Have You Ever Had A Floating Drink?


levitating_cup6 levitating_cup2 levitating_cup3

We almost chose not to blog this incredible creation from Nikola Zistakis, simply because the staff wanted them for themselves, but we chose not to be selfish.  If holding a fancy glass of bourbon scotch wasn’t classy enough, the Levitating Cup makes The act of drinking even cooler. The cup/glass hovers magically over its base, almost as if it’s attained nirvana, or is being abducted by aliens.

Using quantum levitation to achieve this feat, the cups are made from shatter-proof faux glass and come with chrome plated magnetic underside. The glasses/cups come in great variety, depending on whether you’re a juice, beer, coffee, wine, or even a dessert person. Plus, since these glasses are connected to their bases through a magnetic field, they don’t accidentally tip or spill over. They just pirouette around on spot in their own elegant style.  To pick up some of your own right here.

The Roland 909 DJ Gear.


232553_g3

Roland is to start manufacturing vinyl DJ gear with two new products: the TT-99 turntable and DJ-99 mixer.  Both products have been designed to look like the classic TR-909, with the same grey and orange livery. The reveal follows the announcement of Roland’s revival of the drum machine in compact form, the TR-09.   Apart from the TT-99 looking a lot like a classic Technics SL-1200 with a fancy paint job, there’s not much to distinguish it from other turntables on the market. However, it does have an affordable price point of $349, which puts it on a par with Pioneer DJ’s most recent offering.

Similarly, the DJ-99 is just a simple two-channel mixer, though it is reasonably priced at £249. Apart from a dedicated DVS output for digital DJs, it’s as basic as they come. A release date for both is yet to be confirmed.  The 909-themed gear isn’t the only DJ equipment launched by Roland as part of its 909 Day celebration. The company has also teamed up with Serato on the DJ-808, a combination of DJ controller and drum machine.

Toasted Pets?

Every once in a  while, you see promotional artwork that catches your eye, but the item or object the promotion is for escapes you.  Brosmind out of Barcelona, Spain, have designed the “Toasted Pets” series.  “The cutest way to keep your favorite things” is the tagline, but I’m still not exactly sure what they are.  Upon discovering the promotional video below, I was even more perplexed as to why a Spanish company would create their ad in broken English using a think Japanese accent, but HEY, normal is boring.  Made in aluminum, leather, wood and plastic, the first exclusive edition of 50 copies. Price: €130.

Try A New Tri Lighting System.


triad_000 triad_00

With the advent of LED lights, we’re no longer restricted to the tube lights of yesteryear. Created by Jehremy Harris, the triangular Triad light was designed to explore alternatives and the result is a modern, modular system that can adapt to any space. It features an intermediate plug that acts as a sort of connector between two Triad modules. It is here that current is passed from one module to another and it also aids in holding modules together. Each unit features 3 possible connections, one on each so, so it can be endlessly expanded upon.

Take A Good Look At The Pioneer DJ DDJ-RR.


DDJ-RR_PC_setcut_high

Pioneer is expanding their range of rekordbox dj controllers with the DDJ-RR and DDJ-RB. Both feature two channels while the DDJ-RR includes Deck Select so you can switch between all four rekordbox dj decks at the touch of a button. The controllers introduce buttons for new features in the rekordbox 4.1.1 software update, including Sequence Call, which lets you create and save sample sequences then play them back without touching your computer. The DDJ-RB and DDJ-RR are also the first controllers to support PC Master Out, for playing master output through your computer’s internal speakers or a connected desktop speaker while using the controller for your headphones at the same time. Both new controllers come bundled with a full licence for rekordbox dj performance software.

The DDJ-RR packs in all the traits of a pro-DJ set-up. Stay in control with large jog wheels, illuminating on-jog indicators and customisable multicoloured Performance Pads. You can use the Performance Pads to trigger Hot Cues, Beat Jump, Pad FX and Slicer, plus there’s a button for the new Sequence Call feature. Get creative with Slip Mode and Release FX, and hit the new Sequence Load button to load your sample sequences to the deck to scratch them. Multiple inputs and outputs give you flexible connectivity and the option to use the DDJ-RR with rekordbox dj software or as a 2-channel mixer using multiplayers or turntables.

What Is 4D Sound?


maxresdefault-4

ViviTouch 4D Sound was developed with EAP (Electroactive Polymers). Pioneered by Bayer, EAP is an incredibly thin and flexible film that can be used as a flexible capacitor. The proprietary dielectric polymer expands when exposed to an electrical current and contracts when electricity is discharged. Stretchable electrodes are printed on either sides of the EAP film. Furthermore, by printing a specific frame pattern, a developed planer actuator acts as a new type of electrical motor converting electrical energy directly into mechanical motion.

The printed film is designed into an overthe‐ear headphone, these polymer motors move the skin around the user’s ears and generates a very realistic subwoofer experience similar to what one would normally feel only in a concert hall or movie theatre. The electro-active polymer has 10x faster response time and covers a broad frequency range. 4D Sound can generate thousands of unique sensations and enables a full spectrum of sensory sound.

Splinter Works may have created the ultimate way to relax with Vessel, a new and elegant take on the modern bathtub. The design resembles the imagery of a hammock, and is constructed out of carbon fiber for its strength and ability to form complex curves. Floating off of the ground, Vessel is attached to the walls by two stainless steel brackets that can be covered or left bare and is filled by a sleek floor standing tap. As for drainage, there is a a built in water release at the base of the design, though a down pipe drain can also be installed if needed. Measuring nearly 9-feet in length, this sculptural tub also comes in a variety of colors such as red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver, as well as different custom sizes to best suit the buyers personal preferences.

Aetho wants to bring stabilizers to consumers everywhere with the ‘Aeon’. Traditional very large stabilizers used by video professionals, the ‘aeon’ is a handheld tool that is ergonomic and lightweight for creating smooth, cinematic videos.

To keep it stable, the gadget uses sensors to detect the three axes and makes adjustments 1,000 times per second. With every counter movement, the ‘aeon’ employs three brushless motors to move the camera. To view the footage, the ‘aeon’ includes a two-inch circular screen so videographers can see the ‘GoPro’s’ perspective. Weighing only 500 grams, the stabilizer is made from injection molded ABS plastic and features a five-hour battery that can be charged using a USB cable.  To frame more interesting footage, the aetho ‘aeon’ has a universal mount that works with all official ‘GoPro’ accessories. The video stabilizer is available for purchase on their indiegogo page, with a plan to ship to buyers in early 2016.

The ZIIIRO Mercury watch displays time in a simple and unique way. The tip of the inner swirl represents the current hour, while the outer swirl displays the minutes, with a continuous gradient movement showing the passing through time.  Brilliantly designed, and something I’d thoroughly love to have for my birthday.

Baselworld’s Best 2015.


Brikk-Lux-Watch-Omni

Responding to a barrage of smartwatch launches from tech brands including Samsung, LG, Sony and now Apple, a few traditional watchmakers have developed their own connected timepieces.  These innovative horological creations are on display at Baselword, which is taking place through March 26.

The Frédérique Constant Horological Smartwatch

Frederique-Constant-smartwatch-600x449

Frédérique Constant and Alpina have partnered to develop their first smartwatches, two devices combining traditional Swiss horological craftsmanship with technological innovation. Both are compatible with Android and iOS smartphones and offer analog activity and sleep tracking functions, along with a quartz movement. Battery life is advertised at over two years. The Frédérique Constant Horological Smartwatch has a rose gold plated case and a sleek silvered dial. This analog smartwatch is due to launch in late May/early June for just under €1,000 (under $1,080).

The Alpina Horological Smartwatch
Alpina-Horological-Smartwatch-600x405

Alpina chose to repurpose the design of its Comtesse watch for this smartwatch aimed at women. Housed in a 39mm steel case that is waterproof up to 100 meters, the device features a black dial adorned with diamond indices. The Alpina Horological Smartwatch will also be available by June for less than €1,000 (under $1,080).

Mondaine’s Helvetica 1

Mondaine-Helvetica-Number-1-600x423

Activity tracking is also the standout technological feature of the first connected watch from Mondaine, which has a sapphire glass screen and a leather strap. Like the Withings Activité, the Helvetica 1 has a dedicated subdial showing the wearer’s progress towards a given goal. The model is due to launch this fall at an unannounced price.

The Breitling B55 Connected

The Bulgari Diagono Magnesium

102306_DG41C11SMCVD-DIAGONO

Unveiled in a world premiere in Basel, the first smartwatch from the Italian brand is a ceramic and magnesium model that is still in the prototype stage. The Diagonon Magnesium stands out for its NFC chip, which Bulgari is touting as a security key that would allow users to securely and easily unlock a smartphone. Bulgari has stated its intention of launching a production model before the end of 2015.

A Look At The PLX-1000’s.


PEE_PLX-1000_HERO_BLK

We’ve been paying close attention to the story of Pioneer’s new vinyl turntable that originally got leaked by QBert right after the NAMM convention in January, and today the details have dropped. The new PLX-1000 is a direct drive analog turntable that’s very similar in design to the Technics 1200s and many of the other super OEM models that have come after it. There’s a standard layout, long pitch fader with a range of tempo adjustments from ±8% and ±16% to ±50% and a reset switch, and a lighted speed guide on the platter.  A lot of DJs have speculated over the need and presence for additional I/O options besides the traditional RCA and power – and it looks like many might be disappointed as Pioneer has kept it completely analog in the unit, with just a single pair of phono outs, a ground cable attachment point, a Kensington lock slot, and a power supply. The lack of digital interface is something that we’ve heard from Pioneer is very much an intention to keep the sound quality very pure and analog – but we’re left wondering why easy connection for timecode users to a Pioneer certified mixer like the DJM-900 Nexus or SRT didn’t seem like the better play for the market.

The AW14 Watch Collection By Karl Lagerfeld.


The-Kurator-watch-600x600

Between crystal, leather, and stainless steel in pink, black and gold, Karl Lagerfeld didn’t impose any limits when choosing the materials and colors for this new watch collection.  For men, the new fall line includes the Kurator (above), a watch worn on a matte black stainless steel bracelet with guilloché links for a distinctive look.  For women, meanwhile, the Karl 7 has taken on an exotic aspect this season through a snakeskin-style leather strap, all while retaining its urban style thanks to its gunmetal color.  Other new editions of the Karl 7 include a version with a lizard-style leather strap and a dial inlaid with smoky topaz crystals and a version with a rose gold-colored stainless steel bracelet and a dial paved with black crystals.  There is also the Marais, a sophisticated little jewel of a watch with a curb chain bracelet and rectangular dial adorned simply with a discreet profile of the designer. The luxury watch is available in gold or gunmetal.  A brand new model for the fall, the Petite Stud watch stands out for being both modern and timeless at once. Studs have replaced the indices, and the bezel is lined with crystals and pyramid-shaped studs.  The watch is made of stainless steel and is available in gold or rose gold and black, depending on the preferred level of bling.  The most buzzworthy item in the new line is the Karl 7 Charm Bracelet. The gold-colored bracelet comes with seven charms, each representing a symbol of the designer’s world, including of course a cat and a fingerless glove.
