Spira is a diploma project by Alice Robbiani, an interactive design student at the University of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts (ÉCAL). The magnetic docking station restores power to the iPhone through inductive charging and turns the mobile device into a wall clock. Watch the video below.
Calling all students – my friends at Anorak want you to draw them a happy cover! But maybe you don’t want the exposure! Maybe you don’t want to have your artwork sitting on the shelf in places like the Tate Modern (they stock Anorak)! Do you? Get the full details here.
PS – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this magazine is so so sooo amazing.
A ton of awesome work has been submitted to both Booooooom Projects so far, so if you haven’t already browsed the Project Galleries, you’re really missing out. Kalli sent me a couple gorgeous photos last week for Booooooom Project #2 and I quickly emailed her back to see if she had any more I could see. She actually went to the trouble of scanning in a ton of her polaroids and even signed up at Flickr just to share them with me.
So here’s some more incentive to get involved in the projects – from time to time I will feature work, submitted to the projects, on the main page. Here’s a quick look at some great polaroid photography by Kalli Anne.
