Business Card Engineering

by | January 19, 2010 | In design, Videos Comments Off on Business Card Engineering

Bryce Bell is a Mechanical Engineer from Oklahoma. It started as just a fun project when he designed and built the Cardapult to see if it could be done. People seemed to like the idea alot so he started a company geared towards making business card sized mechanical marvels. The prototypes are cut with a laser cutter and hand assembled. You can tell alot of time and effort went into figuring out how to do this.


For just over 80 grand you can get 403hp @ 6500rpm and 398lb-ft torque @ 3500rpm. And just 2.0-liters. Sickness. This thing is pretty.

To achieve the incredible 403bhp from just 2.0-litres Mitsubishi has had to significantly revise the FQ-400’s advanced powerplant. Motorsport specification high-flow fuel injectors are fitted to the aluminium cylinder head and a new hybrid turbocharger is also fitted.

Moodwall / Studio Klink and Urban Alliance

by | May 28, 2009 | In design Comments Off on Moodwall / Studio Klink and Urban Alliance

This is pretty sweet.

Media architecture collective Urban Alliance has recently finished the Moodwall: a 24 meter long interactive light installation in Amsterdam.

The Moodwall is situated in a pedestrian tunnel and interacts with people passing by, improving the atmosphere in the tunnel and making people happy and feel less unsafe.

The interactive urban wallpaper is built out of about 2500 leds behind a ribbed semi-transparent wall. The curves in the wall make it less suitable for grafitti and improve the visibility of the content for the side.

The resolution is horizontally stretched so the images of the screen are better for the side so people are stimulated to watch the screen from outside the tunnel. This prevents the tunnel to become a hang-out spot.
