450 Page Google Docs Presentation

December 16th, 2010

This is the most awesome 450 page presentation you’ve ever seen. It took 3 animators 3 days to make this 450 frames animation in Google Docs. The cool thing about it? They were all in different location but could still edit the same document online at the same time. Plus, it super easy to share it afterwards. So go to http://goo.gl/6MJwH, let it load (it’s quite heavy) and then click through it. Or just watch the video below with some extra making of footage.
(btw, I can only see 413 pages …)

Body Drum Kit

I guess you all remember Daito Manabe his Electric Stimulus project where he stimulated his facial muscles with small electric pulses, synced to music.

My little piece of Privacy

October 14th, 2010

Niklas Roy his workshop is located in an old storefront with a big window facing towards the street. In an attempt to create more privacy inside, he decided to install a small but smart curtain in that window. The curtain is smaller than the window, but an additional surveillance camera and an old laptop provide it with intelligence: The computer sees the pedestrians and locates them. With a motor attached, it positions the curtain exactly where the pedestrians are.

Le Creative Sweatshop – WAD

July 21st, 2010

This is a guest post by Costas Voyatzis of yatzer.

The first time I came upon Today & Tomorrow was somewhere in Athens, Greece in the middle of December 2007. Regardless of dates & location, I fell in love with its content immediatelly.  After that I spent a lot of hours catching up on the posts that had been published since the 21st July 2005, and today I have to admit that I am one of its thousand avid readers.

Last week I received an invitation which I couldn’t reject.  Pieter, the man behind Today & Tomorrow,  kindly asked me to send him a post due to his 5th anniversary.  So here it is, inspired by the compelling DIY (Do It Yourself) culture, a fashion shoot which was published in the latest WAD magazine, “The R-Evolution issue” No45.

Ndeur (Mathieu Missiaen) and Make a Paper World (Julien Morin), two French artists who compose Le Creative Sweatshop,  designed a series of paper fashion accessories exclusively for WAD magazine.  The accessories seem to be part of the models as you can see through the eyes of photographer Matthieu Deluc.  According to Mathieu and Julien “Creativity is all around us – it is something you must constantly work on,  whereas the more you are surrounded by a creative environment the more creative you become – creativity is an everyday job and consists of hard work’.

The French duo really know what creativity means and I’m 100% sure that Pieter has the same belief.

Please keep stimulating our fantasy and feed our inspiration with your selections which will always be irresistible.

Happy Birthday Today & Tomorrow…..

Etch by Tom Dixon

April 26th, 2010

During the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Tom Dixon presented his Etch collection, which was part of his Flash Factory. Visitors could buy a light or candleholder at the stand, or made of brass or stainless steel. The parts were made by employing an industrial process used to produce electronic products, including circuit boards. The patterns were directly etched on the thin metal sheets. This production technique allows the designer to produce a small bath of high-tech products in a very short time. But also the distribution model at the Flash Factory was quite interesting. The objects were offered in 3 versions: a pre-assembled one by one of the Flash Factory workers, or you could assemble it yourself at the stand and the last option was to buy a flat packed one and assemble it at home.
