Have You Ever Seen A Black Badger.

The press release for the Black Badger says the watch features “three-dimensional objects” milled from “solid light.” The science geek in me recoils at such phrasing but nevertheless, I was curious and keen to learn what alchemical tricks James Thompson the watch’s creator had used to transform his rage into solid light. Check the method.

Continuing on their celebration of the Reebok Classic Leather‘s 30th Anniversary, the brand has collaborated with Tokyo retailer mita Sneakers. This sneaker is a colorful combination of materials and tones, meshing pig suede, sky blue chambray, terry, and glow-in-the-dark on one nicely executed silhouette. Behind this is Shigeyuki Kunii, creative director at mita Sneakers, who is responsible for the innovative design process with which mita approaches its collaborations.

The Blue Lagoon.


From what I hear swimming is supposed to give you a healthy glow, but these swimmers weren’t quite sure what was going on when they took a late-night dip and turned a fluorescent shade of blue.  ‘It was like we were playing with radioactive paint,’ said photographer Phil Hart who snapped the bizarre sight as his friends emerged from a lake in the dark of night.  The light is created by a chemical reaction called bioluminescence, which happens when a naturally-occuring micro-organism in the water is disturbed.

It’s believed that the combination of bushfires and floods created the high levels of nutrients in the lakes for the organisms to feed.  ‘It may not happen again in my lifetime,’ said Phil. ‘I feel fortunate to have been there to see it and to have had my camera gear there to record it.’  Phil, from Melbourne, added: ‘While the luminescence was obvious to the eye, the bright blue colour is only apparent in photos.’  When the first photo that was taken appeared on screen I could hardly believe how freakish the whole thing looked.
