Modular magnetic system works as flashlight, headlamp, lantern, work light …

The PAL light pops into the flashlight handle or lantern to give you different styles of ...

Between flashlights of various sizes and strengths, lanterns, keychain lights, headlamps and the myriad other portable lighting solutions available, it’s not uncommon to find yourself with a collection of battery-powered lights that could stock the lighting department of a hardware or sporting good store. Startup 33 Parallel is trying to help cut the clutter with its new Portable Adaptive Lighting (PAL), a modular system that pairs a single light head with various body types, from a flashlight handle, to a headband, to a bike mount and more.

Reconstructing The Mystery Of An Ancient Roman Cult

Design firm Local Projects has turned a pile of rubble into a mystic experience.

In 1954, archaeologists digging in the bombed out ruins of post-World War II London discovered what they first thought was an ancient Roman shed. The structure wasn’t on any maps of the Roman city of Londinium, the precursor to modern-day London. But as excavations continued, the archaeologists found a carved marble head of a deity that revealed the structure’s true intention: a temple to the god Mithras and home to a mysterious, all-male, Roman cult. The temple was moved from its site, then known as the Pompeii of the North, where it attracted mobs of people fascinated by the ancient city buried under London.

design employment • Re: Explaining Reasons for Staying So Long $$$

Agreed, even though I took a tittle cut, it was still a pay raise… but really depends on how much your current employer lined your pockets as well as your tittle.

have you ever head of the term “transferable experience”? I might have made it up, but I use it a lot when talking to people in similar situations. Ask yourself can you get paid the same amount (or more) with the same title (or higher) at another company… if so you have transferable experience. Sometimes you have to prove it, going from Nike to frog wasn’t easy. I had to prove that I could transfer that experience at a director level from a footwear brand to an innovation consultancy. But I was able to show how the experience mapped.

Short version, think of this as a design project. Create a target, where do you want to work? At what level? For how much? … then asses what you have and what you have done and do a gap analysis.

This Robot Swarm Finishes Your Grocery Shopping In Minutes

Ocado’s warehouse technology would probably make Jeff Bezos green with envy.

“This has to be a render,” is my first thought as I watch these robots moving quickly over a seemingly infinite grid of crates. I am wrong. “Because the robots are brand new, it looks like a render but in fact it’s 100% real,” answers Alex Voica, the head of technology PR and communications at Ocado, a British online-only supermarket that delivers orders to customers straight from its warehouses.

This Veteran Designer Built A Better Oculus In His Free Time

Branko Lukic’s studio set out to redesign the headset as a side project. What they came up with is quietly revolutionary.

The Oculus Rift is an ergonomic masterpiece. It fits over anyone’s face, aligning two lenses over every set of eyes. It spins two headphones over your ears, distributing a full pound of weight on your head. The bundled handheld controllers are equally impressive, creating the sensation of grasping real objects. And yet the Oculus Rift still hasn’t had its iPod moment–the design breakthrough that would allow anyone to use it without minutes of apologetic explanation, several micro adjustments to the straps, and the sacrifice of a few strands of hair.

portfolios • Re: Recent Grad in "The Funk"

Tommy,

Thanks for the words of encouragement! I will say that graphic design was always my weak point in school. I’ve learned a lot but its still something I struggle with for sure.

I learned ton at LT about all kinds of stuff, and definitely improved my renderings and sketching ability. I don’t have a much work I can show from my time there, so most of my work doesn’t show my current ability, which I realize is an issue now. It’s a balance between quality and quantity that I’m not sure how to approach.

It’s funny you mention my sketching skills, as its always been a constant area of growth for me. I’ve been critiqued for being both too loose and too tight. I struggle to find that middle ground that a lot of the flashy sketches have. I put a lot of pressure on myself and get inside my own head when I’m sketching fairly often. I know I produce my best work when I relax but the perfectionist in me make it hard to let loose and have fun sometimes.

I got some good news today though, My recruiter has set up 2 phone interviews for me in the next little while. I’m excited for that!

Any more pointers or specific places you can send me to for good examples I should be emulating?


The "taste" of carbs may be making us fat

If you're good at detecting the taste of carbohydrates, you may be more likely to pack ...

When it comes to the taste of foods, most of us assume that everything we eat is either sweet, sour, bitter, salty or umami. According to a team led by Prof. Russell Keast at Australia’s Deakin University, however, carbohydrates have their own unique taste. What’s more, people who are particularly able to sense it are more likely to put on weight.
