An iPad Guide To Building The Perfect Sustainable City

An iPad Guide To Building The Perfect Sustainable City | scatol8® | Scoop.it

In 2010, Harvard’s Graduate School of Design published Ecological Urbanism, a book of interdisciplinary essays on sustainable city-building. But the project had one inescapable shortcoming: When you’re dealing with a field that’s evolving so rapidly, a finite, physical book is liable to be outdated by the time it leaves the printer.

So upon completing the collection, the school commissioned Portland-based interactive studio Second Story to transform the book into an iPad app, a resource that would draw from the original text but could also be updated with new projects and papers as needed. Now available for free, the app shows how dynamic areas of study can benefit greatly from equally dynamic texts.

Features like interactive graphs are innovative ways to access data, as well as useful tools for understanding it. "While working on the app, we found that the data visualizations revealed patterns that told another meta-story that already existed in the book," he says. "Essentially, the patterns illustrated trends in sustainable design, which is attractive for both scholars and the general reader to see."

Bamboo Smartphone Coming to Kickstarter

Bamboo Smartphone Coming to Kickstarter | scatol8® | Scoop.it

At Droidcon this past Friday, a prototype of the first bamboo smartphone, the ADzero, was revealed. The Android smartphone will be powered by a 1.4 GHz Samsung Exynos 4 quad-core processor, the same one in the popular Samsung Galaxy S III. Basically, this is no low-performance novelty smartphone, but the real deal made with more sustainable materials.

 

The ADzero will feature a 4.5 inch display, 1 GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The operating system will either be Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or the open-source AD Android Operating System (ADAOS). The latter is what the developers, AD Creative, have used to build the prototype's custom operating system.

The iRock: The rocking chair that also charges your iDevices | scatol8® | Scoop.it
Remember those old days when you visited your grandparents in the old family home, and fought with all your cousins for a turn on that huge rocking chair.

 

 

Not quite my furniture style but a great idea! A bit expensive, though..

Evernote & Moleskine Merge Paper & Pixels in "Smart Notebook"

Evernote & Moleskine Merge Paper & Pixels in "Smart Notebook" | scatol8® | Scoop.it
Evernote signed a treaty with Moleskine Friday at the Evernote Trunk Conference, formally declaring a truce in its war on paper.

 

I don't know what it is with Moleskine, but even I can't deny their charm. It's an acceptable paperless enthusiast's sin, I'd say.
