Sorry for the confusing title but, I found this link because I clicked on a link that said just that “marinetraffic.com is a fun way to burn otherwise productive time.” The whole you-could-be-spending-your-time-better thing was little too sanctimonius, Marine Traffic on the other hand is awesome. Click on a ship in the sea, and you can get pics, routes, and all other goodies. If you’re thinking about going the way of the pirate, this is a necessary resource.
Burn some productive time people, burn it
Duncan Wilson’s Cup Communicator
“Tug the cord to activate, squeeze to talk and hold to the mouth and ear.
The design of the Cup Communicator is focused on the gesture of use and the relationship between the users and object. I aim to explore the potential of the product as a medium for interaction and reassess the way we use technology.
The form and function of the Cup Communicator refer to the ‘two-cans and string’ children’s toy and the physical factors involved with that device. This typology and its associations remind us of the magic and playfulness of our first communication devices.”
Seriously this is the biggest sticker I can remember seeing. If they are as resilient as Sticker Robot’s outdoor vinyl ones, paint will peel.
“Sticker Robot is going to release the Love Unites Sticker Posters Thursday 11.12. at http://stickerobot.com. The sticker posters will Signed by Shepard and numbered in an Edition of 200 and measure 18 x 27 inches. Proceeds go towards marriage equality.”
