Best of Kickstarter: “The Sa” Innovative Origami-like Umbrella

sa-umbrella

Justin Nagelberg and Matthew Waldman have designed an umbrella called, The Sa, that does away with the inner skeleton that most umbrellas have. Its striking unibody design also allows for easy repair, and is made of environmentally conscious materials to make it highly recyclable.

Design a Sticker for Booooooom! We’ll send you 500.

designastickerforbooooooom

We’re teaming up with Stickerobot Custom Stickers to run a fun little project. They’ve been a supporter of Booooooom for a long time and have made us a ton of custom printed stickers over the years. We’ve made clear stickers and die cut ones but I’ve kept the actual designs really plain. This is where you guys come in.

This is a call to all you artists and illustrators out there to design us a 3″ x 3″ sticker. It can be whatever you want it just needs to have the word “Booooooom” somewhere in it. This doesn’t necessarily mean we just want you to draw a bunch of cool looking letters, you could though. But you could also draw a dinosaur playing a saxophone at sunset and then in really small letters at the bottom write the word Booooooom. Make whatever you want, in your own style.

You can submit your design by leaving a comment on this post and attaching a small JPG (less than 1 mb) image of your design. Keep a high resolution or vector version of your work handy in case yours is chosen.

We will pick 3 winners and each of you will get 500 stickers of your own design sent to you! We will also get these stickers made for us and the back print on the stickers will have information about you (your name, website, etc) so when we give them to people we will essentially be handing someone your business card! We will not be selling the stickers that you create, this is stuff that we want to be able to give away to people.

I’m excited to see what you guys come up with. Feel free to submit as many designs as you want. The submission period ends November 14th.

Artist Uses 3D Printer To Create A Film Without Any Film

Julien-Maire04

French artist Julien Maire used a 3D printer to create 85 figurines out of a liquid resin so that light could be projected through them. The little pieces pass through a projector and an image of a man digging a hole beams onto the wall. Maire made the work during a residency at the iMAL Centre for Digital Cultures and Technology in Brussels. Although the final film has yet to be shared online I think the sculpture itself is most interesting part. Have a look at some more detailed images of the work below.
