I Bet You Never Thought A Non-Tech Wearable Notepad Could Work

Here’s a new twist on wearables. It is not a wearable tech that we talking about, though. The kenma wemo is an age-old tool with a modern twist, without the burden of modern day tech. Wemo is a wearable notepad. Yes. It is a notepad and it is wearable. However, instead of the usual notepad or notebook that slips into your pocket, this one is designed to be worn on your wrist – on your non-writing hand’s wrist, to be exact.

This Cold Coffee Maker Looks More Like A Steampunk Lab Equipment

What looks like a steampunk laboratory device is actually a Japanese Slow Drip Cold Brewer. It really is a sight to behold with the brass and wood construction, and the suspended spherical glass up top. It is handmade in Japan where apparently cold brew coffee originated. I don’t know if that’s true, but we will take Hammacher’s words for it. We are too lazy to check for something so insignificant. As long it makes good coffee that does not go bad in hours, we are good. Continue reading This Cold Coffee Maker Looks More Like A Steampunk Lab Equipment

This Electroacoustic Installation Looks Straight Out Of 60s’ Sci-Fi Flicks

To be honest, I am clueless about what this electroacoustic installation called Apparatum by PanGenerator is about. All I know are one) it looks awesome and straight out of 60s’ sci-fi flicks and two) it makes analog sounds that sounded as sci-fi-ish as its aesthetic. The Lost In Space vibe is strong here, don’t you think? The contraption is inspired by Polish Radio Experimental Studio, one of the world’s first studio to produce electroacoustic music, but with a slight twist. Continue reading This Electroacoustic Installation Looks Straight Out Of 60s’ Sci-Fi Flicks
