The folks over at Qixen-P have come up with an idea for a watch that let’s you be in control of how you see the time. The concept is called UNI and features a 96 x 96 pixel, full color OLED screen that is totally programmable and customizable. My guess is that your watch would come bundled with a program that would allow you to create a custom layout for your watch, making the design totally personal. From the screenshot above it also looks like you can share your watch design with you’d be able to share your design, though the web address above isn’t real.
The watch is still a concept but it’s a strong concept. I’d love to be able to customize my watch any time I wanted to. I guess it would all depend on how much customization you would get which would turn it’s fun factor.
The other day Mr. Erdenberger pointed out that the new X-Mas collection by MUJI was out. Curious, I took a pop over and came across these awesome looking nesting dolls. These matte black nesting dolls are pretty rad looking and seem to have a kind of chalkboard coating that let’s you draw on them. The tallest one is about 5 inches tall and the set goes for $13… which is cool if, you know, you’re in Japan.
If you happen to be iN japan, you can grab a set by clicking here.
Hey hey it’s Friday and I’ve got a new Mixcast for ya’. This weeks has a theme which is centered around female vocalists. I heard Nico singing the Velvet Underground song I’ll Be Your Mirror in an optics shop a couple weeks ago and that was the start of it. Basically these are just some of my favorites songs by lady singers.
For the artwork I went for something that might appeal more to women, something kind of Anthropologie feeling. I really like that it’s so different from last week’s art which was very dark and forebodding, while this is fun and energetic.
Here’s this week’s tracklist: In The Round by The Cardigans Emotional Champ by New Buffalo Little Eyes by Yo La Tengo Old Times by Whispertown 2000 I’ll Be Your Mirror by The Velvet Underground Little Trouble Girl by Sonic Youth Strange Things Will Happen by The Radio Dept. Unattainable by Little Joy Calendar Girl by Stars Gliss by Asobi Seksu Jenny, You’re Barely Alive by Rilo Kiley Lover’s Spit by Broken Social Scene
Boy Lilikoi by Jónsi
Earlier this morning I got an email letting me know that a new song by Jónsi was available for download called Boy Lilikoi. From what I’ve been able to put together it looks like he has an album coming out through XL Recordings called Go which is goingto be coming out March 22, 2010. The song itself is amazing, and it’s totally sung in English! I was totally shocked when I heard it, I couldn’t believe that he wasn’t singing in his traditional Hopelandic style.
I’ve fallen in love with these photos by Todd Baxter, a Chicago based photographer who’s use of color is amazing. All of his photos have this sort of surreal vibe to them, like something you’d see in a painting. It could also be the colors he chooses, everything just seems to pop. They also seem kind of like something out of childrens story, albeit a very contemporary one.
I think 20×200 needs to release some of this guys work!
