Untranslatable Words and the Axes of Attention

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of February 8th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

Untranslatable Words: There are lots of moods, needs and feelings that our own language has not yet properly pinned down.

The Axes of Attention: Every tiny bit of our attention takes something from us, and we have a limited about of time and cognitive resources each day.

Digital Companies Need More Liberal Arts Majors: What can’t be replaced in any organization imaginable in the future is precisely what seems overlooked today: liberal arts skills, such as creativity, empathy, listening, and vision.

Policing The Future: Another longform surprise from The Verge, this time on the weird and usually scary future of “predictive policing.”

Products

Editions At Play: A program that allows writers to create ‘books that cannot be printed’. Books that are written to change dynamically on your phone or tablet using the internet.

Pindex: Collect and discover the best educational material.

Dotvoter: Discover and discuss what matters to your team.

Visuals

Watch A Designer Build A Virtual Reality Game—Inside Virtual Reality: A game designer could craft massive environments while experiencing the immersion of standing in them.

Brainstorming Design Strategies With Toy Bricks: If city planning can be illustrated with LEGO bricks, why not the design of other things.

On The Roofs: Brazil: Just before Christmas the Russian On The Roofs crew returned with a new video of their trip to Brazil which saw them scale the infamous ‘Christ the Redeemer’ statue in Rio, possibly their most risky climb to date.
