first sketch done in that awesome program called Hexels.

give it a try it’s awesome.
I loved the combination of this image and your words, so I wanted to make it into something easy to share. I hope you don’t mind.
The Takeaway: Don’t let critics destroy a great idea.
The three women behind the THINX, a fashionable underwear line designed for a woman’s menstrual cycle, wanted to launch an untested idea in a field dominated by corporate giants like Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, and Victoria’s Secret.
After a few years of perseverance and research, THINX products are beginning to hit store shelves, and early sales have already eclipsed this year’s projections.
This is kind of awesome.

Here’s a fake trailer Ford and I made for our dream project. ATARI is an ensemble film that tells the story of the dizzying rise and spectacular fall of the legendary video game company through the eyes of Billy Kaplan, a young game designer who witnessed it all.
It’s Boogie Nights meets The Social Network meets Yars’ Revenge. Starring Jason Segel, Jessica Chastain, Jonah Hill, Chloe Sevigny, Seth Rogen, Philip Seymour Hoffman and any other awesome actor you would want to see in a 70s movie about sex, drugs, and video games.

that’d be a heck of a time to mix up forward and reverse
DIY Craftsmanship of the Day: iPhonebooster
Musical instrument craftsman Vinnie Veen presents his latest invention “the Cobra,” a wireless and eco-friendly speakerphone amplifier for iPhone 4 and 5. For order inquiries, contact Veen directly via e-mail.
Gotta love when old technology still works!
(Seriously, though. Hipster-esque gramophone iPhone amplifiers? Sign me up!)
was looking for something else and came across @stml pointer to “broken counterfeit jeans” —
“This is an Excel function. It also would work in Microsoft Access. The factory is using Excel or Access to store all the logos for the different jeans they make and then print them onto leather. This is what happens when there is a bug in their software.”

This is actually awesome.
These vegetated surfaces don’t just look pretty. They have other benefits as well, including cooling city blocks, reducing loud noises, and improving a building’s energy efficiency.What’s more, a recent modeling study shows that green walls can potentially reduce large amounts of air pollution in what’s called a “street canyon,” or the corridor between tall buildings.
For the study, Thomas Pugh, a biogeochemist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, and his colleagues created a computer model of a green wall with generic vegetation in a Western European city. Then they recorded chemical reactions based on a variety of factors, such as wind speed and building placement.
The simulation revealed a clear pattern: A green wall in a street canyon trapped or absorbed large amounts of nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter—both pollutants harmful to people, said Pugh. Compared with reducing emissions from cars, little attention has been focused on how to trap or take up more of the pollutants, added Pugh, whose study was published last year in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
That’s why the green-wall study is “putting forward an alternative solution that might allow [governments] to improve air quality in these problem hot spots,” he said.Compared with reducing emissions from cars, little attention has been focused on how to trap or take up more of the pollutants, added Pugh, whose study was published last year in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
