01. Writtenby Rug by Maartje Santbergen (above)

“Maartje Santbergen reduces the trail by a slight degree by weaving the written word into a rug. She spins the paper into thread, which she then weaves. The tufts or threads can be unraveled if the user wants to discover more about the person who has died. Writtenby is a project developed for the Remember Me exhibition held by the Man and Well-Being students of Design Academy Eindhoven.” (mocoloco)

02. Hulkamania Tilt Shift  Video

“Hulk Hogan & Rick Flair duke it out at the Hulkamania tour in Melbourne, Australia this Saturday. This is an early edit released during the tour dates – to become a short film in the near future. Thanks to Hulk Hogan, Rick Flair and all involved for allowing me to shoot this event. Shot on Nikon D3 and D3s bodies.” (likecool)

03. Tata Nano: World’s Cheapest Car to Go Hybrid (above)

“The Tata Nano, a four-passenger city car developed and sold in India, has become famous for being the world’s cheapest car. At just $2,200 a pop, the Nano has also gained a reputation for its fuel efficiency (51.7 mpg). And while a compressed air version of the Nano has long been rumored to be in the works, Tata chairman Ratan Tata has just announced that a hybrid version could eventually hit the streets. If all goes according to plan, the ultra-cheap hybrid stands to shatter the economic barrier to getting greener vehicles on the roads.” (inhabitant)
