Clever DIY projects

Some of the projects in this Buzzfeed post are indeed pretty clever.

Impossible Instant Lab

Posted on Sep 17, 2012 in Endless stuff, Photography

Polaroid prints from iPhone pix. Fun. But I question whether consumers will actually use it after they buy it. The urge to return to tangible prints from digital screen viewing is strong, as seen in instant photo printers from every printer brand, late Polaroid products and from the instagram camera. But I am not convinced that the prints get made and cherished the way they did and were in pre-digi-photo days. Furthermore from a pure design-crit perspective, the formal treatment of this product is not very distinguished or appealing, even in its simplicity. Frankly it looks like the Vitamix. (I still want one REALLY badly.)

Multiplo– modular furniture cushions

I saw this product Multiplo on Treehugger and had to curse a little for the similarity it bears to one of my student projects, Gogo Blocks. Of course I’m not claiming foul play, and I applaud the people at Multiplo for the one thing it takes to make any idea come to life– follow through. They made it happen and their
product totally outshines my student models below…

Apple pie on a stick. Apparently there is still room for innovation even in the most traditional and rudimentary spaces. And it was extremely good. From Pie Corps.
