Motorola Project Ara

Array
Gear  |  Projects
Motorola is developing a free, open hardware platform for creating highly modular smartphones. The design for Project Ara consists of what we call an endoskeleton (endo) and modules.  The endo is the structural frame that holds all the modules in place. A module can be anything, from a new application processor to a new display or keyboard, an extra battery, a pulse oximeter--or something not yet thought of!  So you can upgrade your processor, battery, screen, all just by plopping modular components onto an "endoskeleton" base. It' still a working prototype.

Artist Turns 1988 Ford Fiesta Into Sculpture of a Squatting Transformer

British artist Hetain Patel has spent three months turning an old 1988 Ford Fiesta into a sculpture inspired by the US blockbuster Transformers. Hetain Patel, 32 from Bolton, created the sculpture in homage to the American film and toy franchise, with his engineer brother Pritum and his father, Pravin, who converts cars into hearses for his job.
"My first car was a 1988 Ford Fiesta gifted to me by my father as I turned 17. Born in the UK to immigrant Indian parents, the passing of a car between generations provided me with my first taste of independence. In this new work, I’ve turned my hand to a newly acquired 1988 Ford Fiesta of the same specifications as my original car to create my first sculpture. Manufactured in England, this car stands as a symbol of working class Britain, a native body, albeit here a car body."
The video is a time-lapse video of Hetain’s build process.

It's paper

An animation project by Danish visual effects artist Pingo van der Brinkloev.
"I wanted to make some infinite loops for istockphoto and I wanted to make a paper shader. The finished clips are actually only 4-5 seconds long but they can go on for ever. Then I felt like putting it all together for a little.. Mindfulness-short. Everything is straight out of cinema4d. "

Gear  |  Projects
Dapper Toad collaborated with her sister Lorna of Knits For Life to create this amazing “Yarnbomb Squid Tree” in San Mateo, California. It looks like a giant squid.
- Amount of yarn used: 4 miles
- Knitting time: 20 hours (using Bond Ultimate Sweater Machine)
- Installation time: 14 hours x 2 people
- Temperature during installation: 91°F

"I love seeing people's reactions as we install our yarnbombs. Lately, we've been getting a lot of "so YOU'RE the ones doing this!" and "I've been noticing all the yarn stuff around lately". It's amazing to be able to converse with people as we're sewing feet on mailboxes and bicyclists on bike-shaped bike racks."
