will.i.am’s new bracelet

Earlier this week Wil.i.am revealed his PULS bracelet he has been working on for the past 3 years. It’s not a watch. It’s a phone, it has 1GB of memory, 16GB storage, 780 mA power, 3G, Bluetooth, wi-fi, GPS, a pedometer, and an accelerometer.

There are leaders and there are followers and followers follow leaders. And leaders are followers too. But they don’t follow the crowd. They follow their gut; they follow their instinct; they dance to the beat of their own drum. They have the Puls because they follow their dream. They go against all odds. They’re the oddballs, the bizarre, the weirdos, the freaks, the dreamers, the unique. They’re hip-hop; they’re punk rock; they’re geek; they’re chic; They are artists; the black sheep… and a lot of people think they are outcasts, cast from society, but the reality is, they are an army, a strange imaginative wild and complex and beautiful people. And they are leaders. They are cultural taste makers; they’re trailblazers. These are the people that set the stage. These are the people that rock the stage. They’re the ones who think of things you can’t fathom and imagine the things that have not been imagined. I am will and we are fashionology.

A woman with rainbow vision

Concetta Antico was found to have a wider spectrum of color perception than most of us do. According to news, she sees about 100 million colors, because her eyes have a fourth receptor causing a condition called “Tetrachromacy”. Given the fact that my SLR can only do 16.7 million, that IS impressive.

Create your own personal wiki

Have you ever worked on a really large and complex design project, that spans over multiple years? There is a lot of stuff and knowledge to keep track off, and while it might be simple to memorize, your team members might remember things differently. Anyhow, if you need to keep track of knowledge or want to use it in a team, having a wiki will certainly do no harm.

Adobe’s vision of design in the future

Adobe is re-imagineering the future of creative work. Twelve years ago they spoke about software when you need it, and by connecting to the internet. Today we are using Adobe Creative Cloud. Now Adobe’s latest vision of the future is different … and it’s not on Mac OS. There has always been a shift back and forth to focus more on one platform than the other. In future we give inputs through sensors a la Iron Man, and we use multiple devices in the process of creation. Software is smarter, we don’t need to be that accurate when drawing shapes, the technology will do it all for us.
