Exquisite Embroidered Portraits By Daniel Kornrumpf

Daniel Kornrumpf‘s embroidered portraits on linen are truly unbelievable. His work is reminiscent of the great Chuck Close, but employing such unorthodox materials. I’m blown away by the detail in his stitches and the way he’s able to mimic brush strokes. I wonder how long it takes him to make one of these?


RE:FOCUS - Light-Field Capturingable. Refocus a captured image after they have been taken!

This kinda blew me away: soon we’ll all be able to refocus a captured image after they have been taken! It works with light-field capturing and the company bringing this to consumers later this year is called Lytro. It seems they’re planning their own standalone camera. Awesome!

This reminds me of the sci fi scene from Bladerunner. "Esper Photo Analysis".

Here is full clip in highres.

Homeplus: Virtual Subway Store

Research shows that many Korean customers were focused on getting to and from work and felt they had little time for supermarket shopping. Homeplus created virtual stores in subway stations hoping to blend into people’s everyday lives. The displays were designed to look exactly like those in actual stores, from display layout to the merchandise. Customers were able to use their smart phones to scan QR codes, putting products in their on-line carts. When the online purchase was transacted, shopping was delivered to the door right after customers reached their homes.

Pause: Human Jukebox

WTF? moment of the day. Suzy from Holland said "Finishing my social tattoo with 152 pictures of my Facebook Friends! Of course I gave it a lot of thought. These are not all my friends. Just the people I care most about. I got their permission and they were very proud to be on it. To me it represents who I am right now and the time we live in. And of course I love the looks of it."

The 'Will It Blend?' Blender Finally Meets Its Match

Tom Dickson, the founder of hard-core Blendtec blenders and host of the brand's "Will it blend?" videos, hasn't found much he couldn't pulverize—from iPads to bottles of Old Spice. Now, though, he's found a worth opponent—phone manufacturer Sonim's legendarily durable XP3300 Force phone. While the phone's shell and battery casing certainly took a beating, it came out a lot better than I (and probably Tom) expected. At the end, Tom says it "mostly blended," but that's pretty much hogwash. A little polish and a new battery, and that thing's as good as new. VIA ADWEEK

Rock On, Incredible Creepy Ubisoft Guitar Baby

Here's a worth addition to the pantheon of babies doing grown-up stuff in advertising—this Ubisoft video with a baby rocking out with the company's Rocksmith video game.

Dont drink and drive: The Blind Car

This campaign is from the Hard Rock Cafe and is against Drunk Driving. A car fully covered with a typical car cover was driven across the streets of New Delhi. The message “drunk driving is as dangerous” printed on both sides drove the point home.

T-Mobile Angry Birds Live

The N12 bikini is the world’s first 3D-printed
article of clothing

"The N12 bikini is the world’s first ready-to-wear, completely 3D-printed article of clothing. All of the pieces, closures included, are made directly by 3D printing and snap together without any sewing. N12 represents the beginning of what is possible for the near future. N12 is named for the material it’s made out of: Nylon 12. This solid nylon is created by the SLS 3D printing process. Shapeways calls this material “white, strong, and flexible”, because its strength allows it to bend without breaking when printed very thin. With a minimum wall thickness of .7 mm, it is possible to make working springs and almost thread-like connections. For a bikini, the nylon is beautifully functional because it is waterproof and remarkably comfortable when wet."
