Enjoyed this reality based project that documents 40 days of dating between two friends that have failed at love. Nice mix of design and storytelling. I particularly like the simplicity of how the story is presented side by side.

Check it out: 40 days of dating

I first played this a few years back but have recently started playing it with my son. It’s an amazing game that is stunning in terms of its artfulness. It also evolves the point and click adventure while paying homage at the same time. Well worth the download.

Stumbled upon this music discovery meets street art installation hybrid. These boxes have been placed around Tokyo, London, LA, NYC and Vienna.

So far all I’ve found is the following cryptic description…

“…more than just a multimedia project, it’s an experience.”
“…brings the thrill of discovery back to music.”

I’m a fan of projects that mix creative code and story. Andy Willis’ Spotmaps is a Python-based data / color mapping project…

The Colors From Your Favorite Movies, Mapped To 7,200 Pixels

What do your movies look like when each second is broken down to just one color? Fascinating, telling grids.

…inspired by Brendan Dawes’s Cinema Redux that simplifies each second of a movie into its most prominent color. These frames are then lined up 60-wide to designate a minute per line in a long tapestry of pixels that you could easily call art, or you could just as easily pigeonhole as a strictly scientific, anatomical view of a film’s color.

Cardboard lamp from Vicara called Cartonado. Love the simplicity of the packaging and how the lamp fans out.

Looking for a simple way to sell something online? Want to sell a design, a song or a download link to your film? Then gumroad might be for you. Founded in 2012, by an early pinterest team member, Gumroad closed a 8.9 million dollar round of funding to further its goal – “if you can share it, you can sell it.”

I’ve been using gumroad to sell a tweet book that I wrote and the service is so painless. Definitely worth your time.

Koren Korean electronics company Moneual has developed a touchscreen table for restaurants. The goal – optimize the dining experience with streamlined ordering from the table, rich media menus and NFC integration so you can pay the bill by touching your phone to the table.
