Last year researchers at Cornell University figured out a way to 3D print a functional speaker cone. But now researchers at Disney have one-upped them with a new printing technique that lets any 3d-printed object work like a speaker—no matter its shape. The secret involves using electrostatic loudspeaker technology that actually dates back to the […]

UNStudio upgraded The Hanwha Group’s Seoul headquarters with a dynamic facade that lights up at night and controls the indoor climate during the day.
When designing a new headquarters for Hanwha Group, a large Korean conglomerate, sustainability was among the company’s top concerns.

There’s nothing more tedious than someone droning on about how hard it was to make toast or create a spreadsheet in “their day.” Technology moves on, we all get that; but the lure of nostalgia is inescapable, especially when it’s as attractively packaged as Jim Golden’s Relics Of Technology. Across 15 images, Jim points the lens at various examples of obsolete consumer tech. From floppy disks to slide projectors, each piece is presented in a state similar to the equally obsolete educational TV broadcasts of the late ’70s and ’80s, helping to really crank that long-lost memory dial. See the full lot here, and before anyone asks, no we really don’t miss the VHS.
the collection can be used as containers for flowers or even as an aquarium, the designs are based on market vendors who create and develop their own stands.
