Kickstarter of the Day: Batband


The latest Kickstarter from London-based Studio Banana Things offers a futuristic headset that will allow you to “hear twice as much,” or at least stay connected to the world around you while privately enjoying your favourite podcast or Booooooom mix.

The proposed Batband device works by transmitting sound through the bones of your skull, as opposed to traditional sound-devices that plug/cover your ears.

I can honestly say that I would never wear this, but the idea is really interesting. Learn more below!

Hubbub’s Brilliant Designs are Reducing London’s Street Litter


Environmental charity Hubbub (in collaboration with Common Works) has figured out a way to trick litterers into being better human beings! Capitalizing on Londoners’ love of sports and strong opinions, smokers can now use their cigarette butts to make their voices heard on various burning questions, like whether Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi is the best in the world. Their Neat Streets initiative has many brilliant campaigns, one of which turns chewing gum into paint-by-numbers sorta drawings! See more below.

The Painstaking Process of Handcrafted Artisan Globes



Bellerby & Co. Globemakers is a London-based studio that specializes in handmade globes. Founded in 2008 by Peter Bellerby after struggling to find a quality globe, Bellerby’s is now one of only two workshops in the world making handcrafted, artisan globes.

The process includes hand painting individual sections, soaking them, and then stretching them onto the surface. Apparently it takes about six months to learn how to do it properly.

More images of the beautiful (and painstaking) process of globe-making below!
