Climate change is the most horrific threat our species has ever known: No matter how powerful you are or how much money you have, our transforming planet is a reckoning for every one of us. But there are degrees to this misery. If you’re perched in a Manhattan penthouse, the effects might not be immediately apparent (because you don’t care or aren’t paying attention, or both). If you’re a subsistence farmer in Kenya, the situation is already much more dire.

in an ambitious portrait project of the UK, self-taught artist carl lavia is creating immensely detailed illustrations of the island nation’s 69 cities from an aerial point view. with the help of photographer lorna le bedonchel, the pair use ink and archival paper to produce each drawing, which appear like maps from a distance, but reveal a lightweight impressionist style on closer inspection.

following the release of its skin360 last year, a scanner tool that plugs into smartphones for an at-home analysis of a person’s skin conditions, neutrogena is now taking personalized skincare a step further with maskiD. developed to produce customized, 3D-printed beauty masks, the iOS app works by capturing an image of the user’s face through the phone’s 3-D camera, and analyzing it to provide different types of treatments for six different facial zones.

As babies, we explore our surroundings, understanding how the world works. We discover the meanings of various signs and symbols, and learn how to use certain objects. Eventually, connecting an object’s appearance with what it actually does (its function) becomes second nature. Pushing a button will lead to a reaction; a handle on a drawer is there to be pulled; red means stop. And then you get to the more complex things – how do we learn how to use taps when some of them are automatic, while others require twisting, pulling, pushing or even tapping (yes, those exist and they mess with your minds!)? And even more mind boggling, how are we supposed to instinctively know what to do with those small, flat, rectangular objects they call smartphones?

The Future Book was meant to be interactive, moving, alive. Its pages were supposed to be lush with whirling doodads, responsive, hands-on. The old paperback Zork choose-your-own-adventures were just the start. The Future Book would change depending on where you were, how you were feeling. It would incorporate your very environment into its story—the name of the coffee shop you were sitting at, your best friend’s birthday. It would be sly, maybe a little creepy. Definitely programmable. Ulysses would extend indefinitely in any direction you wanted to explore; just tap and some unique, mega-mind-blowing sui generis path of Joycean machine-learned words would wend itself out before your very eyes.

I’d ridden the motorcycle part of the way up a small dirt hill, and was trying to simply reverse my way back down when I fell off the machine. As I went down, I tightened my grip, inadvertently pinning the throttle. I soon found myself underneath a pirouetting motorcycle.

smart home technology is becoming more affordable and accessible than ever before as technologies emerge to integrate all of our connected devices. but as we embark on a life entirely orchestrated by the internet of things (IoT) what happens to the perfectly working items surrounding us that don’t respond to ‘ok google‘ or ‘hello alexa‘. amsterdam-based frolic studio has come up with a solution that transforms our everyday products into smart devices. dubbed ‘smartians’, they have designed a series of actuators that turn physical experiences into digital ones.

There’s just something about this phone. From the moment I laid eyes on this thing, it just kind of made me happy. It’s small and adorable like a newborn puppy, and despite how petite it appears it photos, it looks and feels even smaller in person. And I’m not the only one that had this reaction. When I brought it into the office, people crowded around marveled. One person cooed at it, another said, “it’s perfect,” while a third remarked that this is the exact sort of thing they’d wished someone would make for years.

The problem with healthcare is simple: there’s not enough of it. In a perfect world we’d all have our own personal physicians like the Queen. But in reality, the average doctor sees thousands of patients a year. Solving this problem could take decades. Unless, of course, someone were to “hack” the system itself using artificial intelligence.

New gadgets are the best. We especially love ‘em when they find cool, inventive ways of bridging the divide between the old school physical world and the new frontier digital landscape. And is there anything more quintessentially old school than scribbling notes longhand with a pad of paper and a pencil?
