The End of the NASA Window and the Lazy Pen

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of September 20th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

The End Of The NASA Window : We had to know our world well enough to be able to escape it, but not so well that we couldn’t ignore the price we were paying. And now that window may be closing.

Streets With No Game: Boring cityscapes increase sadness, addiction and disease-related stress. Is urban design a matter of public health?

A Compassionate Drug: It turns out altering people’s brain chemistry can stop them from being selfish jerks.

Products

MOCAheart: An ultra-slim portable device that measures your blood-pressure related vital signs and an app that connects you to the health of your loved ones.

Bamboo Spark: A smart folio, which combines the benefits of handwriting with the convenience of editable, cloud-based documents.

Atomic: Create interactive prototypes without ever touching a line of code.

Visuals

Lazy Pen: An attempt to combine the practical side of computer-based word processing with the emotional aspect of one’s handwriting

The Pope Vs. The Wind: As popes frequently address large crowds in open-air settings, they—like everyone else—have to deal with capricious weather.

She & He: Designers create “male” and “female” robots that independently converse using phrases from Twitter
