1. When children’s book writer/illustrator Tomi Ungerer spoke with Fresh Air, he mentioned that he had designed a kindergarten school in the shape of a cat.  This is how he described it:  

"The children go into the mouth every morning. And on the second floor, they can slide down through the tail."

Cats and kittens, here it is. It is in Germany. We want to go back to school.

3D Printer Photo Booth Makes Figurines Instead of Photos
Tokyo’s stylish Harajuku district will soon be home to an unusual pop-up photo booth - customers will walk away not with photos, but with 3D printed figurines of themselves. The customers is first 3D scanned in a process that requires them to stand still for 15 minutes. A 3D model of the customer is then refined on a computer before output to a 3D printer. The figurines are available in sizes ranging from 4 to 8 inches. The 3D printer photo booth will be open November 24 to January 14, 2013. It is the work of Japanese creative studio PARTY.



It’s the democratization of the figurine… No need to be famous or a superhero to have a miniature version of yourself, to put on a shelf.

World’s Skinniest House Actually Gets Built, Opens

From Treehugger:

Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of living in small spaces. I write about them all the time. But the Keret House is 122 cm (48.031”) at its widest, 72 (28.34”) at its narrowest. I know people wider than that.
I also complained that “It’s like living in a squished ping pong ball.” But the architect explains that this was on purpose; the walls are made of translucent plastic to let in light. The whole thing works a lot better than I ever thought it would.

Imagine the amount of crowding that happens at parties… (Photo credit: Archinect) View in High-Res

Dogs are curious creatures, and the fact that they are constantly attempting to dig themselves out of the back yard should be a clear indication of this.
The Pet Peek looks allows your dog to explore his/her curiosity, seeing exactly what’s on the other side of that fence without having to dig out.

For dogs and nosy humans. Imagine the conversation with neighbors during installation. View in High-Res

Swing Table, A Table With 8 Suspended Chairs

Why play with your food at the dinner table, when you can act like you’ve never left the playground?
I imagine towels/napkins are necessary in this scenario. Lots of them. View in High-Res
