After launching the LG Display curved OLED televisions with 4K capability, this year’s offering is sure to make headlines. LG has a mind-melting 55-inch ‘wallpaper-style’ set that is a very thin 0.97mm and weighs only 4.1 pounds. As OLEDS don’t need backlighting,the actual components are not contained within the TV itself. The “mat” can be hooked up on a wall using a magnetic foundation, allowing the ever-present TV to practically disappear altogether.
No dates as to “when” this new development might hit first-adaptors..

3D printing continues to take small leaps and bounds as adventurers literally spin out innovative adaptations like that of Nervous Systems, Massachusetts and their kinematically designed frock. Made from over 2200 modular, triangular pieces that move individually allowing fluid, fabric like motion. 21st Century chainmail. So wonderfully innovative that MoMa NYC has bought it to place in their museum. Printed through Shapeways, it involved ‘folding’ the stl. file within the parameters of printing capacity. A remarkable, technological feat that is equally delicate and beautiful.
Steven Meisel teams up with Prada for a very moody “still life” video showcasing how so little can convey so much…
If ever there was proof good things come in small packages, this is it. One of the tiniest apartments in Paris (8 m/sq) is renovated utilizing every centimetre for an astonishingly livable space by Kitoko studio. Genius.

Northwestern University in Chicago has announced results in electric brain treatment that may hold the key to rehabilitating memory disorders stemming from alzheimer’s, aging, brain injury, schizophrenia, stroke and just plain ole’ forgetfulness…Results showed substantial improvement of memory tests after the 3rd day of 20 minute cranial massages for 5 consecutive days using electric impulses to a sweetspot strongly connected to the hippocampus just under the skull. Cramming for exams just got a whole lot easier (lol).
Stimulating a particular region in the brain via non-invasive delivery of electrical current using magnetic pulses, called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, improves memory, reports a new Northwestern Medicine® study published in the journal Science.

For the moment, the novelty lends itself well to the luxury market, whether it’s a printed CAR, HOUSE or more modestly, the customizable Prada shoe! Clients can soon choose not only heels and other modifications on certain styles but have their own initials engraved on the heel. Couture, 21st century style.
If you think life has left you behind and is now only full of terminator styled cyclists with their cyborg light mount helmets and sporty spandex, have no fear, the Tweed run is here. With NO Lululemon or Nike in sight, London held its 6th anniversary leisure cycle through the streets and parks this year with an estimated 500 participants. Not bad at all.
Today it hit Pescara and Madrid, the 18th of May and coming to 35 more destinations later this year.
A highly innovative design from Deniz Karasahin, Paris won the 2014 A’Design contest for a medical brace. It is not only custom 3-D printed to each patient but because of the material, is waterproof, lightweight, environmentally sound and bacteria-resistant. There are ultrasound probes on the interior that directly touch the skin so regular low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) will stimulate bone reconstruction. Quote: “For single 20 minute daily sessions this system promises to reduce the healing process up to 38% and increase the heal rate up to 80% in non-union fractures”. The structure also allows maximum breathability, reducing infections and itchiness. Impressive.
The TED conference happening this week in Vancouver has not only notable speakers but innovative artwork like that of Janet Echelman.

It spans 227 x 145 x 53 m, suspended between a 24-story skyscraper and the Convention Center. Made from Honeywell Spectra fibre, it is a massive, billowing Google Chrome Eye floating high above the city with stunning light show at night.
