Cool architecture and photograph. I like this Uniqlo brand.

something eerily cool about this solar powered robot. would be nice if he could detect obstacle and do reverse or avoid.

Nice, I can imagine doing real setting of Matrix opening with these fabric in museum installation in a huge dark room with liquid constantly changing color.

material: monert™

this is a sign made of water. fibers given a special coating at the nano level completely
repel the drops of water, much like a lotus leaf. when the droplets of water exceed a
certain size, they roll away down the sloping surface under the influence of gravity.
the water drops well up to form letters on top of the sloped fabric, a new drop of water
grows up to take the place of each drop that rolls away, so the water logo is constantly renewed.
the water drops form tails as they roll away. these tails is a result of friction between
the water and the fabric.

Hakone garden in saratoga freebie day.  They said memor of geisha was shot here but hard for me to imagine....

looks interesting by Ross. he used the fabric described below. I like the should string treatment too.

material: T.W.F. ® fabric and MELSET™ fiber

a triaxial woven fabric can provide greater stiffness than conventional woven fabric
with a smaller amount of fiber. this 3D form is difficult to produce because it is detailed,
deep, and curves over a wide area. howewer, the characteristics of the triaxial woven
fiber functioned well, producing a result that was even better than expected

my garage shot. i wish...

wow, it is a pre huge.

lovely designed chairs.

Often I can not tell Ross Lovegrove design from Zaha or Luigi. I somehow like Luigi and Zaha the better but I only met Luigi Colani so what do I know.
got to luv dumb idea like this.

1971 Lancia Fulvia Zagato. Kind a cute and for sale at $25K. I hate to be sound like old fart but Zagato did much better simple design back in 70s and 60s than now.

Kind a heavy but I like this chair.

Wow some bad looking bike. H.R.Giger mashed up with Terminator.

It is called Ciclotte? is this exercise bike? would be nice if it could ring street like segway.

Objectified 2008. It was done by the same dude who did Helvetica. Might be some fun for designer but still it was boring. Paid $15 for special talk session with Ideo and Smart Design Lads. I want my money back. Worth $3.

cool skeleton Nikon.
