The Dancing Squid Dish

I think this is AWFUL! I'm not sure what they are thinking when they look at it, for me, it's gross.... I would stop eating a squid for the rest of my life. Yes, Japanese are weird, aren't they?

This dish served in Japan includes an entire squid served raw, where soy sauce applied to the squid creates a reaction in the nervous system due to the sodium content of the soy sauce that makes it appear the squid is ‘dancing’.

Cozy Cozy Cozy!

Image1

i'm obsessed to make these crochet cozy at the moment. You can warm and protect your wrist, your lunch apple and of course takeaway coffee. Would you believe that we have a very cold sunny day(it may be a shower or two) today. The highest temperature will be 15c! Hurrah! Love it!

I'm making a teapot cozy.

I've actually never made a teacup cozy before. I thought we don't need one in Sydney even in winter but I had t change my opinion. You wouldn't believe how cold it is here in Sydney. I love the cold weather that encourages me to do more knitting, crocheting and felting. Here I am! making my first teapot cozy!

News From The Future: Virtual Supermarket in a Subway Station

I am speechless.

via Make: Online by Phillip Torrone on 11/07/11


News From The Future: Virtual supermarket in a subway station
in a campaign designed by the seoul branch of advertising agency cheil, tesco homeplus supermarket opened last fall a virtual grocery store in a south korea subway station, permitting users to shop using their smartphones.
a large, wall-length billboard was installed in the station, designed to look like a series of supermarket shelves and displaying images and prices of a range of common products. each sign also includes a QR code. users scan the code of any product they would like to purchase, thereby adding it to their online shopping cart. after the web transaction is completed, the products are delivered to the user’s home within the day.
the strategy makes productive use of commuters’ waiting time, while simultaneously saving shoppers time spent going to the supermarket.
It will most likely be NFC, not QR code as this actually happens.

Perspective Lyrique, a Building Projected on a Building

I've heard about it but never seen it before, that's amazing! I believe I would be very frighten by the size of it.

Perspective Lyrique uses Ableton Live to control the output of QC + MadMapper.

A mapping by 1024 Architecture, projected on the facade of former Lyrical theater the “Celestins”. The building deformations and figures were controlled by the audience, using a microphone and an audio analysis algorithm.
