New Renderings of Future Apple Headquarters Released | FreshnessMag.com

New Renderings of Future Apple Headquarters Released | FreshnessMag.com | Design, Technology & the Interwebs | Scoop.it

For a design-obsessed company that surpassed Exxon Mobil to become the world’s most valuable company (at least for a couple of hours last week), a campus headquarters full of relatively nondescript office buildings isn’t going to cut it. As Steve Jobs first presented in June, Apple will vacate its current Infinite Loop headquarters in Cupertino, CA, and move just a few blocks away to a new “giant, space-ship shaped” campus, as Jobs himself described it. A few days ago the city of Cupertino released new renderings of the building, and the images are stunning. The circular four-story structure, measuring approximately 2.8 million square feet and occupying 175 acres of land, will hold a 1,000-seat auditorium, a fitness center, 30,000 square feet of research space, and an underground parking structure. 12,000 employees will call it home upon its scheduled completion in 2015.

We move from GeoCities to LiveJournal to MySpace to Facebook, looking for the perfect experiment in mass intimacy rather than just admitting that we don’t want to swallow a glistening golden stream composed of the mental excretions of everyone we know. We want to be part of the in-crowd without having to be part of the crowd.

In short, we all want to be popular, well-loved, well-connected hermits.

TOMS vs. BOBS: How Skechers Shot Themselves in the Foot | Fast Company

TOMS vs. BOBS: How Skechers Shot Themselves in the Foot | Fast Company | Design, Technology & the Interwebs | Scoop.it
Skechers copied the concept behind for TOMS shoes by launching BOBS. Just like TOMS, when you buy a pair of BOBS, Skechers would donate another pair to a child in need. Even the shoes were the same. And their name had a similar short, familiar feel. In doing so, they set themselves up for online ridicule, but also drew a powerful distinction between those that do good because of the meaning behind it and those that do it simply for marketing purposes.

Could 3D printing end our throwaway culture?

Could 3D printing end our throwaway culture? | Design, Technology & the Interwebs | Scoop.it

"What if you could design replacement items such as dishwasher parts, cord pulls and oven knobs, or even invent a new product and then "print" it out? That's right, print it. We're not talking paper and ink, but actual three-dimensional products that are printed out layer, by layer using a range of materials, such as plastic, powder, metal, and even chocolate, which are then bound together to form solid objects. Amazing eh?"

Research|Penn State: What is colorblindness? | Design, Technology & the Interwebs | Scoop.it

Midnight Blue, Burnt Orange, Aquamarine: Since 1903, Crayola crayons—with their fanciful names and hundreds of hues—have introduced generations of American children to the nuanced beauty of the color spectrum. Imagine the public's surprise when Crayola's senior crayon maker, Emerson Moser, who molded a record-breaking 1.4 billion crayons in his 37-year career, announced upon his retirement that he was color blind.

Moser is not alone: Up to 8 percent of men around the world—and over 10 million American males—have a congenital color vision disorder, or "colorblindness."
