Your PC Needs a Control Panel Like This One | Make:

Tue, 08/25/2015 - 17:24 -- rprice

Reddit user smashcuts decided to liven up his interactions with his hardware by building a fully functional overhead control panel for his computer. The 100 programmable buttons range from practical to ridiculous, but smashcuts puts the “fun” in even the most useful functions. His “Main Systems” panel triggers his most used programs, while peripheral panels house switches that function for OS shortcuts or for program-specific commands. All of these he has cleverly codified with nerdy pseudonyms.

Niklas Roy: We be Cyborgs!

Mon, 11/11/2013 - 16:30 -- rprice

KIKK, Namur, Belgium / October 2013 in collaboration with Kati Hyyppä “A cyborg, short for ‘cybernetic organism’, is a being with both organic and artificial parts." KIKK invited Kati and me to give a workshop in Namur around the theme “Next Utopia”. We were free to make what we wanted, and decided that it would be cool to transform ourselves into cyborgs! The workshop space was also ideal for reaching the next level of human development: A Renaissance style, empty church full of divine iconography. Regarding the cyborg building materials, we decided to leave computers and electronics out.

Singing in the rain! Building that plays music whenever the heavens open becomes tourist attraction | Mail Online

Sat, 05/11/2013 - 01:03 -- rprice

The singing house was created by sculptor Annette Paul and designers Christoph Rossner and André Tempel, who all live in the musical home. Ms Paul said she was inspired by her home in St Petersburg where she would listen to the ‘rain theatre’ of the pipes outside her home.
