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.

With the rise of soft, cloth-coated gadgets, it’s become clear that fashion and interior design are impacting consumer electronics. But influence is a two-way street–and the design language of Silicon Valley is also influencing other design sectors.

Luigi Catacuzzeno lines up a long, thin needle against a frog egg. Peering at it through a microscope, he turns the knob of a machine to nudge the needle a fraction of a micron forward. Then he deftly punctures the membrane of the soft little egg to wire it to a small capacitor, an electrical component similar to a battery.

straight from the workshop of tech wizard q, james bond’s aston martin db5 from the 1964 hit film goldfinger has been reworked, but into over 1,200 LEGO pieces. the newest line from the LEGO creator expert series, which is to be released on july 18th in LEGO stores and online, has models from the taj mahal to the london bridge. this db5 model is not the first car classic or supercar to be reduced into model size, with the bugatti chiron released earlier this year. this db5 yet again combines mechanical sophistication with the relaxing yet always challenging build that LEGO presents.
