Goldfish Training Kit

fishtrainingmnp.jpg

Picture it: Lassie returns to the house barking. "What is it girl? Timmy’s fallen down the well?" And then everyone runs to get that little fool out. But it’s too late. Goldie already saved Timmy’s sorry butt. Because Goldie is the goldfish you trained with your R2 Fish Training School Kit - and fish lives in the well! Ok, so that was a little overdramatic, but when you put your fish though Fish School, you’ll be amazed by the talent of your little scaly friend.

Take a sec and watch the video, we’ll wait . . . done? No stunt fish or special effects were used; that was an actual fish trained using this kit. You get everything you need to teach your fish to play football, play soccer, limbo, weave, fetch, go through tubes, and more! And then you can quit your job and go on tour. It’ll be just you, Twinkie the fish, and the open road. With the R2 Fish Training School Kit and a little perseverance, the world is your oyster . . . well, goldfish.

Monofin: Forget Michael Phelps

lunocet.jpg

You’d had to have been living under a rock for the last couple weeks to not have at least heard about Olympic swimming and Michael "I’m freakish and probably half dolphin" Phelps whooping everyone’s ass. Able to swim at about 5mph, Phelps put the competition to shame and is coming home with a record number of gold metals.

Pretty impressive, right? Only if you haven’t got yourself a Monofin! Designed by Lunocet, the Monofin weighs only 2.5 lbs out of water - and strapped to the feet of your average swimmer it can get the wearer up to 8 mph. So what’ll it be: lifetime of training, or carbon fiber flippers?

[All that said, real ninjas don’t need to swim fast, as they can run across the water’s surface. -Ed.]

[If Voyager had a Michael Phelps, they wouldn’t have been lost in the Delta Quadrant.AA They could just rustle up that motherfisher and have him open a wormhole and swim them right the funk home. -Ed.2]

Designer Prosthetic

eames_inspired_prosthetic-01.jpg

Anyone even a little bit into design knows the work of the Eames, probably for their molded plywood and/or fiberglass/plastic chairs [like the one I’m sitting in now]. Taking cues from the classic works of the Eames, designer Joanna M Hawley has created a wood, carbon fiber, and leather prosthetic leg. Looks more like this, than the bent plywood - pretty dope either way.

From Joanna M Hawley:

Eames-inspired Prosthetic Leg

Prosthetics generally lack humanity, style and grace. Often, they look much like landing gear and make the wearer uncomfortable, self aware, and sometimes depressed. By channeling the Eames’ use materials and iconic style, we designed a leg with Steve McQueen in mind. We sought to convey a creative use of positive and negative space, a balance of materials and a reflection of the wearer.

This project taught me to expand my use of research materials. We interviewed several amputees in varying stages of acceptance, met with Sephora color specialists to discuss skin tones, and 3D laser scanned actual legs to translate the proportions of the human body into CAD. Through a wide range of techniques, I explored the challenge of designing something with the body in mind.

team member : Kayhan Haj-Ali-Ahmadi (a pre-med student with whom I worked to gain further knowledge about the body)
