Here comes another umbrella that’s even better than what I’ve posted before. This one isn’t about fashion; it’s more about function. Actually, I learned about the inverted umbrella from a guy who’s so much into guy stuff (because men always do things upside down, or something similar to what Batgirl said). Not only is this umbrella inverted, but it also closes from the inside out. “Perfect for the car,” the guy says.
I like unusual gadgets as much as the cool geek next door does. All the more if I could display it in my house as a conversation piece. Just like this floating bluetooth speaker with NFC function. Not only does it play music wirelessly; it also looks like that robot from that space movie – you know what I’m talking about!
How would you like to be under a clear blue sky when it’s actually raining? With a sky umbrella such as this one from the MoMA Design Store, you’ll probably forget about the gloomy weather.
I often see photos of celebrities wearing necklaces with pendants looking like looping, overlapping letters. I looked it up and found out that those necklaces are called monogram necklaces and those letters are probably the owner’s initials. Probably, because while the owner’s initials are commonly used in monograms, monogram necklaces are personalized pieces of jewelry that can be fully customized depending on the owner’s preference. However, I also found out that there exists an etiquette on how to design a monogram … a classic monogram, I mean.
A few years ago, I attended a film photography class where we made our own pinhole camera out of cardboard and duct tape. I wasn’t able to develop the photos I took (wasn’t able to consume the whole roll of film) but I enjoyed the process of DIY-ing my camera. It feels rewarding to be able to create something functional out of a simple material. So when I stumbled upon this smartphone projector on the internet, I thought it was interesting because it, too, is made of cardboard.
