philco PC retro desktop

schultzeworks design studio has reinvented the desktop. the outcome is 'philco PC' a retro-styled
personal computer which is influenced by the 1954 design classic philco predicta, mixed with a bit
of modernist minimalism.

lead designer dave schultze states:
'the result is a design aesthetic that blends multiple elements of the familiar, but with some
surprisingly fresh styling that just so happens to house a state-of-the-art windows 7 PC.'


This is a video of an old Jeep Cherokee being used to make a song by combining all the different sounds it can make (trying to start, locking/unlocking doors, door ajar alarm, etc). It is highly impressive/unbelievable.

The sounds in this video are ACTUAL sounds from the Jeep. Everyone began rehearsing their parts 2 weeks before we shot the video. It took us 7 hours of filming to get a solid take. Enjoy!
The song starts off kind of slow but really picks up around 1:00, so go ahead and skip to there if you don't have much time. And, if you really don't, how about including me in the will?

Model Boat

Swedish artist Michael Johansson has made a life-size dinghy "model kit" from a real boat and related equipment, called TOYS'R'US. Boat and related equipment are joined together in a welded metal frame, and painted a uniform gray to resemble the surface of a model kit. "The real boat is transformed into a model of itself, and its original purpose has given way to something else. "
