revisiting the good old underwater theme.
The Abyss Table is a stunning coffee table that mimics the depths of the ocean with stacked layers of wood and glass. Made by London-based furniture design company Duffy London, the limited-edition piece comes with the hefty price tag of £5,800 (nearly $10,000).
Love the idea but this needs a bumper. Stumping your toe on the bottom edges of that tailgate = no fucking thank you.
Open air art installation by Kimchi and Chips produces geometric forms in air with an array of computer controlled mirrors and lights - video embedded below:
Kimchi and Chips create phantoms of light in the air, crossing millions of calibrated beams with their work Light Barrier, 2014. The light installation creates floating graphic objects which animate through space as they do through time.
A fascination with natural light drove the technique of the impressionist painters, they explored new qualities of colour and the trail of time. Kimchi and Chips’ study of digital light discusses a new visual mechanic, their installation adding to the visual language of space and light. As the artist’s inquiry deepens, brush strokes become descriptive like code, detailing reality and allying light with canvas.

To make his furniture, artist Greg Klassen collects trees (in a sustainable way, I might mention) from the river bed of the Nooksack River which flows near his home in Lynden, Washington and then transforms them into gorgeous works of art; cutting, carving and sanding them all by hand. You can see more of the gorgeous work below!

The Elumotion Robotic Hand
The Elu-1 Hand was developed for RT-1, a bilateral human-scale robot torso
The hand is a powerful 9 degree of freedom, lightweight unit (740g).
All the hand actuators are situated within its volume, eliminating any transmission problems when the hand is mounted on an articulated wrist. The hand is actuated using servo motors fitted with precision gearing with encoders enabling high accuracy positioning.
Elu-1 Hand and RT-1 are controlled using the robust CANbus system that minimises wiring.
