Freescale Smartbook Reference Design..

Dun know how to say and I think i will grab this. Just lovely with it’s less than US200 price, using ARM(thought it was down) processor and Google Android OS.. Abit sad about the dock is merely a keyboard, and charger.. Maybe i would like to buy another folding keyboard with it outdoor ~


Navilights by Julian Kohn..

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is a proposal project – Navilights by Julian Kohn from a Denmark design school DESIGN SKOLEN KOLDING , for the Shanghai World Expo.

A clever design which merged infography n road indicator. For sure I real love the on-ground indicator with tasty infography, esp the pink+red line, with the river~ But for those blues on the sample, it seems down-used the concept, I will use progressive saturation colour to indicate the sub-zones

In my mind, I think the illuminated tube indicator is not necessary to be THAT china, with bamboo, seems not that match with the asphalt. And i think it is not tall enough, I may use hanger-truck(吊雞車) or sth more decent to hang larger tubes from the air. Ai, yea, then will need to adjust the viewing angle..

Also, I got a question about the bike tube, it is fabulous for sure which can indicate the distance with a “natural” sense – the shorter the light, the closer the destination. However, it seems didnt tell how to set the target,  and it may need a zoning code for each site. And it will be the best if it can display where you are hanging around..

Please check out their other great project, here is my selection:

Finally i know this technique is called Geometry Mapping. This can create an illusion to make the projection in 3D, I have first seen in cubic cascade surface.. They did too, facade projection, but the rendering images are abit low-fi..

The Flashback, before gone forever..

當臨死前在白色隧道flashback自己一生最為後悔的事可能會是-the end-時自己的一句”oh shit, this’s my life” 我們也許不能幹出驚為天人的世事, 而一生人到了80歲最回甘的可能還是做過一個月backpacker. 一段精彩的人生不是一生人做過一件大事, 也不是多少件的問題, 而是有一顆永恆不滅, 精彩的內心。”一個世界可以隨著一個人的看法而改變” 有著兩種程度, 微小的可以是我在這瘋狂的地球裡自滿於家庭朋友以及生活態度。或者是steve job般改變地球人對一個老舊音樂行業的看法,還有 Sir Richard Branson 為人類宇宙旅行賭上自己成就。改變世界可能不會是他們的成就的目標,而有一個可能是他們的答案是”I just feel right, and want to get it done”。我們都不只是為了目標而活而奮鬥,而是隨著自己所想,所認為是對的事而行。由世人所定斷的成果有高,也有低; 會低,也會高。縱使走過的死胡同令你滿身傷痕,縱使走過的人已經遠去,縱使走過的時間已不復回,你最後所擁有的就是那一顆精彩的內心和flashback。

Floating City..

I dun know the name of this technique, but in explain, the editor duplicate and flip the same video upsidedown to create a landless image/movie.. I has first seen in an MV but never find it back, that MV even play with 4 copies and human face with more color elements (imagine the flashing neon light in the city~).. The Editor also have few other version in his/her youtube page, he/she is a cat lover too~

Free Rental House – brainstorm


Select Families to Live Rent-Free in an Australian Smart House”

I saw the title of this post on Good Magazine (when will my issues arrive…?), and came up with a fantasy totally not related to the article.. It is about if there will have some free/cheap rental apartment for the people who can manage and produce energy inside the apartment..

Let me talk about some reference, there is a project (sorry~ I forgot the name, this is a reference without reference) about redistribute the power produced by the windmill, solar panel in each household. According to my power plant visit in school, the electricity are normally sent to the house when they are needed, only in but no out, and the excess electricity will keep flowing around until its gone (consumed by the network resistance or whatever just gone and cant be use)..

Keep this concept and think about nowadays household (house-hold, not flat-hold or apartment-hold) are mostly equipped with solar panel or windmill (I’m talking about generator powered by wind power but not the Holland one for wheat).. And there will have the same power waste problem as the power plant while the sun and wind wont stop (when you dun need it…)

So, back to the project, there will be a network in between the community. A windmill can power a bulb, ten of mills can power a charismas tree (dun ask me stupid question about they drink water…).. The idea is here, when a household dun need the power while its still generating, the excess electricity will flow into the community network and looking for another household which need them to power their TV or water pump.. If you zoom out from this community, the electricity needed from this community will be decreased, thus the power plant need less fuel to produce less power, easy right~?

Okay, this is a brilliant idea form the scientist, and with my garage idea, it is similar/copy from their idea.. If there is an apartment with more than enough solar panels, mills covered, also equipped with hundred of power generating gadgets inside the house, like the Flush Generator, Rocking Horse Generator, Dance Floor Generator… …, so so so, in commercial way, customer scarify the household quality (outlook, set equipment…) to gain the rental refund from the landlord, isn’t it great~? Of course there is still a long way to go for the ultra high efficiency power generator, but they are moving fast!!~~
