Korean artist group Everyware (Hynwoo Bang and Yunsil Heo) recreates the sky and its clouds as part of an interactive installation on the ceiling of a Korean exhibition space, the Savina Gallery.
Cloud Pink, a multi-media project, serves a pseudo sky pool in which you can touch and interact with the color, shapes and sizes of clouds. The work is composed of a fabric screen, and an interactive software; the two work together to create a believable yet whimsical recreation of the clouds on the sky.
Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America has called Silicon Valley its home for the past 20 years and recently it moved its headquarters from Palo Alto to Sunnyvale, California. With its grand opening taking place last month, our friends over at Mercedes-Benz kindly opened their doors and took us on a guided tour of the state-of-the-art facilities. Harboring a large number of Mercedes-Benz’s “competency centers” — projects that focus on developing different technologies — the large office area has been compartmentalized to feature a range of open spaces including an outdoor terrace for meetings. With the help of a highly-skilled interior design team, the once empty shell has been transformed into a space that meets the exact needs of each operation. Upon moving in to this monstrous facility, employees were given the chance to get creative by designating names to laboratories. For example the “chocolate lab,” which is involved with developing a digital drive-style app, meets up to its billing with mounds of chocolate stored in the space. The layout of the three-story structure has been designed with movable glass and “idea paint” walls throughout, alongside foot-flow paths that encourage employees from different departments to exchange ideas. Unique to this research and development center is the advanced autonomous driving area that features custom tech-heavy booths for an engaging virtual experience. Peep the video above and enjoy the unique insight into this world-class working environment.

Some might not realize that a business card is a reflection of you.
I recently came across this card, that we did not print, and wondered why this person couldn't create a free email account that didn't include Mary Kay.
Showing that you"re involved with multiple network marketing companies can give mixed signals while giving out a card for another MLM and telling people how they can "make money" with a franchise.
Sometimes people need to take a break from only thinking about a business card design and spend more time looking over it's content.
LG started the New Year with a bang, announcing today that it will begin accepting pre-orders for its 55-inch OLED TV this month, and start shipping them in South Korea early next month.
More than 1,400 LG retail stores in South Korea will begin accepting pre-orders Jan. 3 for the $10,000 product, with deliveries to commence the first week of February. LG expects to take the lead in the OLED TV segment as the first and only company to announce availability of the next-gen TV technology.
The 55-inch television was first unveiled at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show. Samsung also introduced a 55-inch OLED at CES last year, but LG is now the first to bring it to market.
The 55-inch set is the world's largest OLED TV panel. Most smaller-sized OLED displays use something known as Low Temperature Poly Silicon (LTPS). LG said this new, 55-inch model uses a technology known as Oxide TFT, which replaces Amorphous Silicon with Oxide, which is cheaper.
"Not since color TV was first introduced 60 years ago has there been a more transformational moment," LG's Home Entertainment Company CEO, Havis Kwon, said in a statement. He boasted that LG's razor-thin OLED TV will leave consumers speechless, "a clear indicator as any that OLED TV is much more than just an incremental improvement to current television technology."
The new TV weighs in at less than 22 pounds and 0.16 inches thin. LG is incorporating White OLED (WOLED), which emits white color light from the diode, allowing a lower error rate, higher productivity, and a clearer Ultra Definition screen, according to LG.
The company's excitement for its new OLED TV may not be enough to take to the bank, though. The technology was meant to hit the market before the summer Olympics, but mass production challenges and high projected retail prices slowed the process. By September's IFA trade show, the TV sets were still in the demo phase.
A November NPD DisplaySearch report tipped an uneventful 2012 for the OLED market. The firm expected only 500 sets to be shipped before the end of the year — small in comparison to the total TV market.
Samsung, meanwhile, sued LG last year over a number of patents relating to its OLED technology.
Never limit yourself to just Business Cards, be creative and make some cards that can brighten someones day.
The card on the left reads:
I would just like to inform you that I find
you to be very attractive.
And have a nice day
Something so simple can put a smile on someones face. I do suggest these cards should be given out by single people and not to be used to pick up on people, but simply to make more of us smile.

Mirrors with LCD panels have already made an entry into our lives, but what they lack is the power of human touch. Igniting the fun element is this mirror which will put all other products to shame. If you are fan of touch screens, Interactive Mirror will win over you in no time. Designed by Lit Studios, the Interactive Mirror acts as an over-sized touch screen that gives you the power to read, draw, watch movies/videos, paint, browse assignments and pictures, and that too without straining your eyes.
Put up the notes on the mirror and revise while brushing your teeth. Missing your friends, simply start a slide show and see it coming to life with all the people you wanted to see. Feel like doing nothing, go ahead and doddle on it. With so many choices, it will captivate your interest instantly. This will surely make bathrooms all the more special and worth flaunting. All you need to do after putting up this mirror on the wall is make a seating arrangement because looking at it just for a few minutes every day will not be enough.
So, you thought mirrors were just meant for personal grooming or complimenting oneself. Think again!
This is functional kitsch; the wrong becomes the new right. By adding a function to an otherwise grotesque object, it acquires new aesthetic values, becoming an object of desire.
Pun intended; these woofers hold the midst between an addition to your sound system and your loyal 4 footed companion.
They are engineered by a professional audio studio, and sound remarkably well. Available as a co-axial speaker system [two dogs].
