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.

A Hitchhiker's Guide to Cutlery

A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Cutlery

Back in 2000, when the mobile phone got married to the digital camera, us selfie-obsessed folk were skeptical. Who knew that a decade later the camera would be the most important part of the phone? Designer Ian Yen of Design YXR thought it was time for history to repeat itself. The resulting product is the Pin Tableware. Part cutlery(spoon/knife/fork), part stationery (safety pin), this refreshing design brings a kitschy element into the way we perceive and store our cutlery. Let’s hope to see a frisbee/dining plate hybrid soon!

Sounds complicated? Let me break it down for you … it’s a Micro USB Cable and a Lightening Adaptor and it features a slot that reads micro SD cards.
