Even if this is just a prototype, the implications are insane! Futurecraft 3D (by Adidas) unveiled their first 3D-printed midsole, basically taking personalized products to an entirely different level. Check out the shoe prototype and video clip below! How long until I can just print out my own Yeezys?
The design for the new Vancouver Art Gallery has been unveiled! Designed by acclaimed Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron, the proposed gallery will be 230 feet tall and have a total floor area of 310,000 square feet (85,000 of which will be dedicated exhibition space). There will be a library and 350-seat theatre, and it will all be primarily made of wood! While the design is impressive, the project is expected to cost $350 million. That’s not only $50 million more than expected but far from the $73 million raised so far.
I personally love the building design; the scale, the striking silhouette, and the carefully considered windows in the upper levels rather than yet another all glass addition to the boring Vancouver skyline. I just don’t know how our city is going to afford it (I hope we can). If it is indeed built, it will be Herzog & de Meuron’s first building in Canada. More renderings of the proposed design below!

Cocoon is a 360 degree x 220 degree immersive video installation and the latest from London-based animation studio, Factory Fifteen. Exhibited at the SAT Immersion Experience Symposium back in May, Cocoon represents the first attempt at 360 degree film making. In the video below, participants are placed inside a transformative, spherical space that eventually peels away.
Around this time last year Foster Huntington decided to build the ultimate tree house and skate bowl. With the help of his friends (some professional carpenters/some not), Huntington was able to make his dream a reality. Having documented the project from start to finish, Huntington is now starting a Kickstarter campaign in the hopes of publishing a book that will inspire others. Watch the video of The Cinder Cone below.
Founded by visual artist Joe Hollier and developer Kaiwei Tang, Light aspires to provide you with “your phone away from phone”: a device that connects with your existing cellphone, but only makes phone calls, and is the size of a credit card. It’s a fantastic concept, not to mention a beautifully minimalist design. Learn more about The Light Phone and Light’s Kickstarter below!
