It's been a little while in the making but the wonderful guys at Thabto have just launched my moustache door mat on their website. Not only that, they're donating 5% of all their moustache based sales during November to the Movember charity. Hooray!

I stumbled across this video the other day. It's beautifully shot and gives a lovely insight into one mans life and work. I'd like to one day build a wooden canoe but can't see myself having the time for quite a while. I'll keep dreaming.
I've posted a video before of this chaps older brother but this little fella is just great. Melvin The Traveling Mini Machine is a mini Rube Goldberg-style machine that takes 38 steps to put a stamp on a postcard. Created by HeyHeyHey.

So in Shibuya Japan there's a cafe when you can laser cut and make things while you sit and drink a brew! I think this is a pretty nice idea especially for etching graphics and cutting smaller items whilst meeting similar minded folk. I think there's a real future for Fablabs as a pay as you go service and wish one would open up near to me. I guess in the mean time I'll just have to start building my own.

I recently got Micro - Very Small Buildings by Ruth Slavid. It's a great book and is inspiring me to think about a small architectural job I'd like to do in the future. I thoroughly recommend it to someone who is a little scared by huge architectural jobs but would like to get into construction design on a small scale.
I've always had a bit of a divided opinion about Philippe Starck. Some of his work I really like but sometimes it's just not for me. After watching this talk I can't quite make my mind up if he's a genius of just a bit of a nutter. Well worth watching.

I'm not sure what to make of Berg's little printer. Part of me loves it and part of me thinks it's the type of object that could very quickly become obsolete. I do love the design though. Minimal with a touch of fun, just the way I like things.
