Everbright is a huge, digital lighting display, 42 times as large as the original 'lite-brite' - a classic toy by hasbro. Read more.
A simple turn of any of the boards 464 dials presents users with every colour under the rainbow, including black and white thanks to LED technology. When done creating, a press of a button erases the canvas and resets dials to their default.
Designed by Hero Design, ‘everbright’ uses custom LED boards and a high-color contrast surface that looks great, regardless of time of day. Hero Design realized the piece with a focus on direct control by users, however, it is also capable of displaying customized animations and other interactive elements.
Perfect for workspaces, events, dorm rooms, cars, bathrooms, laundromats, gyms, and lecture halls — it is the ultimate toy for creative teams and individuals alike.

THERE are pleased to announce it is the Gold winner of a 2015 Sydney Design Award within the Environmental Graphic Design Category. Read more.
This years event saw THERE continue its award-winning form, following on from the 2014 Sydney Design Award for the Environmental Graphic Design Category.
The award was for the collaboration with Fender Katsalidis Mirams (FKM) Architects on the Garangula Gallery building facade design.The facade was constructed using timber sourced from the recently demolished Hornibrook Bridge, which once crossed the Pine River that runs through the estate.
The design solution drew inspiration from the site, the gallery function and materiality to be used, delivering a solution that would capture these aspects in a visually impactful manner.
Principal of FKM Architects and lead design on the project said, "We greatly value our collaboration with THERE who provided exhaustive research material and excellent creative responses to the project challenges. We will certainly continue to work with THERE on current and future projects”.
Garangula Gallery is a privately owned gallery sited in outback NSW and houses an extensive collection of Aboriginal art. As aboriginal art tells a story, the building tells a story through the use of crafted, recycled and locally sourced materials.
Just as storytelling is at the core of Aboriginal art, story telling is the basis of the facade design — paying homage to this tradition and heritage of materials, in an innovative and contemporary manner.
A visually stunning execution that responds to site, architecture and materiality.
Seeing the world through a depth-sensing camera Read more.
There have been a lot of different uses of the Kinect technology this caught my attention for it's fun use of the technology.
The project by PABR creates a lofi looking headset by patching together Google Cardboard headset and Kinnect technology. It then creates a depth-sensing camera to a head-mounted stereoscopic display turning your world into Predator-like visuals. Sure similar results can be achieved with a heat sensor headset but it is the depth-sensing aspect in this project that is intriguing.
This is in contrast to the slick and semi-realistic virtual reality that a headset like Oculous Rift will be able to provide. However, with a Kinect, or similar technology, integrated into a headset it's an interesting experiment which creates a unique point of view and has the potential for some exciting posibilities.
It will be intriguing to see how this technology develops and whether a VR set will become a commonplace device.

Flexible Design: An origami-inspired design solution. Read more.
The team at THERE esteem design that is both innovative and aesthetically sound. A recent example that has captured our attention (especially that of the gardeners in the studio #gordoneckel) is a origami-inspired pot that expands as the plant inside grows.
Throughout the lifecycle of the average pot plant, from seed to adult, several repots are usually needed in order to give the roots space to grow. GROWTH, by London based design house, Studio Ayaskan, removes the mundane task of repoting by unfolding up to four times its initial volume.
“The life cycle of a plant is a transformation, from an early seed to its full grown size; the blooming of a flower, the unfolding of a leaf, the branching of the roots,” say Studio Ayaskan. “This process is what GROWTH aims to capture within a plant pot.”
Although, it’s only a concept at the moment, we’re told it will soon be in production and is likely to be sitting on the windowsill of a certain design studio on Foster Street shortly after its release.
Here's a look at a different kind of 'mobile' device Read more.
Possibly the “world’s smallest electric vehicle”, the WalkCar is built like a skateboard scaled-down to the size of a laptop. To use, simply stand on it to start the vehicle, and step off to brake it. The WalkCar can be easily steered by shifting one’s weight from side to side.
Armed with a lithium battery and an aluminum body, the 6.6-pound compact device can carry passengers up to 265 pounds. A single three-hour charge can bring you as far as 7.4 miles.
Engineer Kuniako Saito of Cocoa Motors told Reuters, “If we could just carry our transportation in our bags, wouldn’t that mean we’d always have our transportation with us to ride on?” He also hopes that the WalkCar can assist the less able, such as helping the elderly climb slopes.
Preorders for the WalkCar will begin October 2015, through a Kickstarter campaign. It is expected to retail at 100,000 Japanese Yen, approximately US$800.
