Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” — Steve Jobs
Designer Charis Tsevis has built a graphic monument to Jobs that hammers home his giga-influence on computers and product design: a ten-thousand-pixel wide photo collage that forms Steve’s face out of the products he has created.
And that ever-present black turtleneck. RIP Steve Jobs, we’ll miss you and your vision.
Iris van Herpen is a Dutch fashion designer who just showed her Escapism couture collection in Paris. Escapism is her second 3D printed fashion collection after last season’s Crystallization. The collection is a collaboration between Iris van Herpen and architect Daniel Wildrig with the label .MGX by Materialise. The pieces are made with selective laser sintering in Polyamide. Pretty sweet, if I do say so myself.
If you’ve ever dreamed of sleeping in an igloo, here’s the next best thing. Scratch that, this is way cooler than an igloo. The Whitepod Resort in Les Cerniers, Switzerland, features a mountain lodge and chalet, including 7 km of ski slopes with private ski lifts. What’s so special about this place? Whitepod. Whitepod is a camp of 15 dome pods surrounding the central chalet. Each dome is essentially a tent stretched over a wooden structure and platform.
Each pod has a wood-burning stove, organic luxury bedding and a complete bathroom. The pod camp just opened in December 2010 and has recently added a spa. Looks pretty freaking cool.

Inspired by Dentsu London’s iPad Light Painting, Jinhwan Kim and Cameron Zotter experimented with motion and typography. Moving an iPod Touch in six rows, they countered the motion of a series of videos displaying sections of Akzidenz Grotesk type. They took a long exposure photograph of each session, capturing an interesting image of each letter.
Pretty neat stuff. Give it a try yourself. Download the 26 video files here (.zip, 3.9 mb).
