The Art of Practical Wisdom and the Doors of Italy

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of July 19th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.


The Art Of Practical Wisdom: The psychology of how we use frames, categories, and storytelling to make sense of the world.

A New Theory Of Distraction: Still, for all our expertise, distraction retains an aura of mystery. It’s hard to define: it can be internal or external, habitual or surprising, annoying or pleasurable.

Are You A Head Person Or A Heart Person?: Here’s a question you probably wouldn’t think of, but which new research suggests could be surprisingly informative: “Do you think your ‘self’ is located in your heart or in your brain?”


Library Extension: A browser extension that lets you instantly see book and e-book availability from your local library on your favorite book shopping site.

IKO: A creative prosthetic system that inspires disabled children through creative freedom and play.

Solar Paper: The thinnest and lightest solar charger that can reliably charge your smartphone in about 2.5 hours on a sunny day.


The Doors Of Italy: It’s impossible not to have some sort of curiosity towards the doors of Italy. Each one is different. Some have ornate designs, while others have a spartan-like minimalism. Some are surrounded by flowers, others by stone.

Longitude And Latitude: 46°41’58.365″ lat. -91°59’49.0128″ long.
