A book: a world full of images, flavors and …colors. Can you really imagine the colors of your favorite novels?

Painting the sky

April 15, 2013 § Leave a comment

In the urban landscape we only get small glimpses of the sky; at least from the street level view-point of our every day comings and goings. Yes, one could see a fair share of sky from a high building, but it always the urban skyline that dominates the experience, not the vast horizons of the countryside.

Basically, the sky is absent from the urban landscape.

This is why sky-artist Thomas Lamadieu fills in the small sky-gaps with his strange creatures.

How (many pixels) far is it to Mars?

April 6, 2013 § Leave a comment

If the Earth were 100 pixels wide, the Moon would be 3000 pixels away. Mars, at its closest, would be 428,000 pixels away. At the current state of space technology, it will take around 150 days to get to Mars.

Form follows function, indeed

April 4, 2013 § Leave a comment

Apart from being my motto in design, form follows function is the coolest website I’ve seen in a long, long time. And a great example of a truly engaging experience online.

Jongmin Kim creates small interaction experiments, where the user controls what’s going on on the screen.

We are talking about colorful, fun and, sometimes, unpredictable experiences.

What’s even better is that you can download some of the experiments to use as a screensaver (both for mac and pc).

All of the experiments are built in HTML5. And for those of you who don’t talk web, this means that the website works perfectly on your computer, tablet or mobile phone.

The Chinese Room

Well this thought experiment is very close to my heart.

Do you believe that Artificial Intelligence is possible? I mean not now, but theoretically in the future? Do you think that we can build a machine so intelligent that it can be considered to think as a human? I do. But John Searle does not. And here is why – and it’s only 60 sec long:
