The World’s First Double-Sided Backpack

While looking for a way to revolutionise quality leather goods, friends and product designers Alex and Andrei stumbled upon an ingenious way to reinvent the backpack: by making it two-sided. Following a meticulous design process; with genuine premium leather as their staple material, fair prices for their customers as a necessity and hand-crafted manufacturing as a must, Alex and Andrei’s company Chivote are aiming to change the way we travel with our tablets, laptops and other vital accessories for good.  By simply adjusting the strap at the top of the padded straps and twisting the backpack to reveal the reverse, switching your rucksack’s look from modern to classic or casual to smart has never been easier, practically giving you two great bags for the price of one.

With just a couple of weeks left to go on their Kickstarter campaign, Chivote will be hoping to reach their goal soon in order to bring their marvelous two-sided backpacks (which are now set to be made available in three unique colour-ways) to life, although if you’re not yet convinced by the full package, you can also pledge a cut price fee to get your hands on Chivote’s luxury leather pen case or wallet.

The Pixel Painter

Meet Hal Lasko, 97 year old retired graphic designer, who spends his days making art on MS Paint. Pixelites … prepare to have your heart’s melt … video embedded below:

Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.

Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.

Hal also has a website where you can see more of his works, which you can find here

Reblogging this today as today would have been his 99th birthday (he sadly died in July the 6th this year). He even had a Tumblr blog, hallasko.

RIP Hal Lasko

A digital art display platform from Japan with motion detection, available in two sizes - kickstarter video embedded below:

FRAMED is an Internet connected display that allows you to showcase artwork in a way that has never been done before. 

Designed to be the world’s first canvas for the art of our generation, allowing you to experience and enjoy beautiful art within a normal, everyday setting. Perfect for creators and fans of visual culture alike, hang it on your wall, choose an artwork, and transform your space into a living, virtual gallery of creative expressions. 

The evolution of technology and accessibility of the internet has brought out an expansive range and depth in digital art, and now, FRAMED can bring digital art into your everyday.

Over the course of a year, we’ve built two sizes (24-inch / 40-inch) with immense care and attention to craftsmanship. Every unit contains a gorgeous full-HD display, graphics processing, integrated inputs, and motion sensors within a mere 18mm (0.7 inches) in depth. We’ve created a minimalist object as the perfect backdrop for showcasing artwork, while maintaining powerful features to allow each frame to be totally unique, and exactly what you, the creator, makes of it.
