Jazz FC @ Singapore National Stadium

We finally played at SIngapore's National Stadium. This is our first and probably will be our last time playing in this stadium. Even so, we find it hard to attract any spectators down to support us lol.

Content Aware Fill : Amazing Photoshop features to be available soon!

People who use photoshop will find this so so useful! Obviously there will be all the old schoolers photographers who will be disgusted by what this will lead to. Well i think in the end it's still your sense of aesthetic and creativity that counts. So they shouldn't be too worried about it.

Bell by Industrial Facility


I really like this Bell alarm clock by Industrial Facility. I am a fan of what people call minimalist design, however it's not the styling but the thinking behind it that interest me. The way we can minimize unnecessary materials, components and styling that result in better communication and function. That to me is the right way to design something.


Still do not understand why is it call Bell? Take a look below and you will immediately understand. (click on image for larger view)



Now do you get it? Isn't it interesting? Other then taking on the profile of outline of a bell, it actually holds another sort of bell at it's back, the alarm bell. Even the choice of colour is aptly chosen (by the way this is fire bell red, the other 2 colours are bicycle bell chrome and door bell black). Immediately you know this alarm clock will be pretty loud. By choosing to expose the bell, we get better (louder) alarm, yet there is no need for an additional cover just to cover it up. All i can say is that it is really a nice and smart idea. Looking at the clock face, you can notice that the numbers aren't immediately noticeable. This obviously is intended so as to minimize distractions. As we do not usually need precise knowledge of time, doing so allows quick and easy time telling. Various thickness of the hands allows differentiation and also reflect on the "value" (thicker hand = bigger value) of the figure it is pointing to.


However it always is disappointing how these designs always end up way more expensive when it is supposed to use less. This clock is selling for around 50 euros.


Head on to Industrial Facility's site to find out more.

Fujifilm HS10



There are a lot of useless gimmicky features now in the new cameras out there today as various companies try to out do one another in gaining market shares. However in this case, i really think the function of removing moving subjects is really cool! Taking a step back, if you are taking pictures of a popular destination, i think you will expect the others to be staying put, trying to take their own pictures as well. 


Still a really nice idea if you want to take photos of yourself without people moving behind you!

VIV Mag Featurette: A Digital Magazine Motion Cover and Feature for the iPad



VIV Mag Featurette: A Digital Magazine Motion Cover and Feature for the iPad from Alexx Henry on Vimeo.

Many people do not understand what iPad or even Apple is about. This is what it is about! Empowering people to do great things! Some narrow minded companies will just set out to develop their own contents so they keep all the profits, they do not understand that by allowing everyone to have a slice of the cake, your cake will end up bigger than if you try to stomach it all on your own.

Sony 360°



Ha isn't it a bit ironic that's it's called Sony 360? Anyway i think this product is really interesting, I'm still trying to figure out how they actually managed to do it. How did the display stay flat regardless of where you were to view it?

Bloom Energy



Yesterday, we witness the unveiling of an eco-friendly fuel cell. It's a product that got a lot of people excited as it generates electricity with only by products like water, heat and some carbon dioxide. To be exact, they operate using Solid Oxide Fuel Cell.


A solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is an electrochemical conversion device that produces electricity directly from oxidizing a fuel. Fuel cells are characterized by their electrolyte material and, as the name implies, the SOFC has a solid oxide, or ceramic, electrolyte. Advantages of this class of fuel cells include high efficiencies, long term stability, fuel flexibility, low emissions, and cost. The largest disadvantage is the high operating temperature which results in longer start up times and mechanical/chemical compatibility issues.

Watch out for this company, they have already been providing these energy servers to big companies like google, ebay etc. Visit their website for more informations.

Apple

I've been thinking about blogging about Apple for a long long time, the bashing of Apple's product by supposedly "smart" people constantly fuel my intention to talk about what i think apple is about. By the way, I do not think i'm smart, i'm just wondering how those people got there (associated with intelligent) in the first place.

About This Blog

This blog is about looking at design from a logical point of view. Good designs are often good because of the thinking behind it and not because of pure luck. The colour, forms etc can all be and should be rationalised. This belief doesn't mean that any and everyone can design by simply following a formula. It is still an art to decide on the solution that best fit all requirements.


I will be posting on some everyday stuff that's more light hearted and fun. Reviews will be done on products that I’ve gotten my hands on!
