Pop-A-Point Tools

Rewind to school days and do you recollect absentmindedly play with the Pop-A-Point rainbow pen? Who knew that such a simple idea of a functional mechanical pencil would inspire a bunch of designers to create an innovation that revolutionizes the tool industry! I’m talking about the Tool Pen by mininch; so cool and well designed! It’s a pint-sized all-tools-in-your-pocket and everyone loves this idea!

Lantern of Knowledge

Lantern of Knowledge

One way of looking at the Internet is that it is the largest library ever constructed. Having a library, or a way to store human creativity, is important because any future advancement requires a foundation of accumulated knowledge. Of all the ways humans have come up with for passing on information (oral traditions to the printed), the Internet is the best we’ve created thus far. Yet, only ⅓ of humanity has access to the Internet. Bridging this gap is the Lantern, a portable data receiving device; here’s why you need to get your hands on one.

Increasing Structural Stability with solidThinking Inspire

It warms our core when we come across some inspiring case studies. Just like this one that solidThinking shared with us, involving their ‘Inspire’ software and Columbia University’s Studio-X and Tokyo DIGITAL STUDIO. The project (a pavilion) was collaboration between the two and showcased at the Tokyo Designers Week 2013 and 2014. The structural optimization software helped generate a buildable complex shape that increased the stability performance of the pavilion.
