Knit a scarf in 5 minutes by bike (Cyclo Knitter)

George Barratt-Jones, who studied at the Design Academy · Eindhoven (DAE) in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, invented Cyclo Knitter which can knit a scarf in 5 minutes by a bicycle pedal. This cyclone / knitter is a fun machine that scarves (mufflers) knit with scarf (muffler) knitting while wearing a train while waiting for the train while enduring the cold (^ ^) Generally speaking, when design major, fashion design, Interior design, product design etc, you can understand vaguely what you learn just by listening to your name. However, in DAE, major names such as Man and Well-being (Man and Health), Man and Mobility (People and Mobility), Man and Leisure (People and Leisure), and other major names are conceptual. It is not a design with things, but firstly there are people (users and designers), we observe the relationship between that person and something (well-being, mobility etc) and design some product from there. Cyclonic · Nitta is interesting because the scarf (muffler) knitting automatically concept while warming in cold waiting time. It is fun to have knitting while training it while putting it in a fitness club etc (^ ^) The IMD2018 worldwide competitiveness of the Netherlands was ranked 15th in 2015, but ranked up to 4th in 2018 .

What is amazing in the London subway map? (TED: Michael Bierut)

The legendary design Michael Bierut talks about the London Underground route map, one of the most famous maps in the world born by coincidence. Harry Beck's design has become a model of a route map we can think of as a subway map today. The route map of Tokyo, Paris, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Sydney, Washington DC converts complex geography into a clear figure. The London subway, in 1908, eight different rail lines are integrated into a single system. I needed a map to show the route, but it was a complicated design with a line drawn on a regular map. 29-year-old Beck was a drafting engineer in engineering and sometimes worked for the London subway. He had an important awareness. People riding the subway do not care much what the ground is like. They just want to move from the station to the station. "Where to ride? Where do you get off?" The important thing is the route, not the "geography". He simplified sprawled spaghetti. Mr. Bierut says that the design of Harry Beck is applicable to any design. The first principle is "to focus". I will focus on who I am doing. The second principle is "simplicity". What is the shortest way to realize that need? The last third principle states that "thinking across disciplines". TED Speaker: Michael Bierut (Designer, critic) Japanese translation by Mariko Oyabu. Reviewed by Yasushi Aoki. (Read Japanese subtitles) As Sculptor of Visual Thinking, Harry Beck's "Route Map Design" Is taken up. In addition, we introduce 'Route map of New York' as an example of reconsideration of route map and 'Classification of services acquired by Google' as an example using design concept of route map. It is easy to understand (^ ^) The essence of infographics. Harry Beck's Route Map Design (Jun Sakurada / Visual Thinking)

Test introduction of Google-promoted AMP to blog

The sites that introduce AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) and the display speed are topics, and the sites and blogs which are described are increasing.

Mysterious ocean fairy, the sea snow world (Sea slug)

Sea slug is a type of shellfish with shells disappeared and seems to be introduced as something like "slug" or "sea fairy" in many cases. I think that there are no creatures of such diverse designs (shape, color, color scheme, etc.). It is said that over 2,300 kinds in the ocean of the world, it is increasing now. I feel overwhelmingly colorful, diverse cute little sea bream in 'image list' and 'sense of nature' or 'mystery of life' (^^) Sea slug (Google image search list) wonderful (^ ) Nudibranch (en: Wikipedia) Since life was born, weak ones were destroyed, strong ones, only adaptive survived. A diverse design of the sea turtle created from the necessity of this life. Human beings are also keywords "diversity", but I think that there are many things to learn from the mysterious color scheme of a sea lion as if pursued "beauty", and its diverse life design.

Android application that does not require installation (Android Instant Apps)

Android Instant Apps was announced as providing the best Android experience to users at the Google I / O Developer Conference in May 2016. (YouTube) The ideal of Instant Apps is to combine the ease of accessing web pages and the functionality and speed of native applications. It decomposes the native application into very detailed elements, and the user downloads only necessary elements. Elements are small so downloads and operations are done almost instantly. You do not need to go to the Android application store, install the application, and then start it afterwards. Simply tap the URL. Installing an application that is not frequently used on the terminal puts pressure on the device, and it should be hesitant to install even with a free application. It is also epochal for those of "those who do not want to install extra apps" (^ ^) On field trials that began on January 23, "BuzzFeed", "Wish" "Periscope" "Viki" Is being offered as Instant Apps, and by gathering feedback from users and making improvements, we plan to expand the number of correspondence applications and expand the user experience in the future. Examples of actual use include applications that can use payment functions in smart parking areas, shop-only applications that can be used in retail stores, applications that provide useful information for watching at museums and sports facilities It is thought. City and regional tourist information applications are also very useful (^ ^) The Android Instant Apps feature is an upgrade of an existing Android application, not a new separate app. Android API, project, source code is the same. Activating this function may take less than a day. However, the work you need depends on the configuration of the application.

The enchanting light of the Nixie tube revives (Dalibor Farny)

From the 1950s to the 1990s, the Nixie tube was manufactured globally, but the origin of the name Nixie (Nixie) is "NIX I" which is the abbreviation of "Numeric Indicator eXperimental No. 1" (From Wikipedia) Dalibor Farny, who lives in the Czech Republic, knows that there are few factories that are currently producing Nixie tubes, because of the fact that they love antique furniture, old cars and electronic equipment. He decided to build a Nixie tube manufacturing factory himself. We have established the company "Glow Tube Research, sro". Farney studied programming from age 15, major in mechanical engineering and software engineering at high school and university. I am fascinated by the Nixie tube since 2011, and I am self-taught from old materials from parts to manufacturing methods. YouTube is an interesting Nixie tube making movie (37 minutes). As the Dalibor Farny brand, the Nixie tube designed with reference to the most beautiful model Z 568 M (RFT) is R | Z 568 M (unit price is USD $ 145). This beautiful Nixie tube R | Z 568 M is used, the latest design watch is "Zen Nixie Clock". Internet connection specification, circuit board and LED lighting, a glass case set, it is USD $ 1,685 (about 170,000 yen).
