    UnlimitedHand for Actually Touching Virtual Reality

    As advanced as virtual reality has gotten, it still only engages with two of the five senses, maybe three if you include Smell-o-Vision.

    1974 ‘NASA Graphics Standards Manual’ Reissued

    Back in the early 1970s, NASA was starting to slow down following their successful moon missions in previous years, and there was at least one thing very, very wrong with their organization – they had no graphical or branding coherence. Following the implementation of the Federal Graphics Improvement Program, graphic designers Richard Danne and Bruce […]

    Wood Kubb: A Computer in a Small Wooden Block

    The general design approach to computers is all about sleek curves, plastic, and metal, but designer Jean-Christophe Agobert has shown that there is another way with his latest project now raising funds on Kickstarter.
