While it’s merely a prototype, Spector is basically a dream tool for graphic designers and creatives who often encounter inspiration in the real world. Wired referred to it as “Shazam for fonts” but also pointed out that one major obstacle in its development may lie in its ability to aid in design theft. Check out the video below!

Kickstarter of the Day: Replica of the Moon Based on NASA Data

Moon3

Amazing collaboration between London-based designer Oscar Lhermitte and design studio Kudu, this lunar globe isn’t just topographically accurate – it can rotate along with the phases of the actual moon! While created on a much smaller scale (1:20 million), “Moon” is based on data from NASA and computer outfitted with the same memory as the Apollo 11 computers.
