Okay, okay, I know I have been posting a lot of pump releases lately, but the shoes have definitely been on a roll in the past few months. Check out this latest incarnation which features glow in the dark technology and markings which are somewhat reminiscent of the movie TRON. These shoes are mild-mannered by day, but show their true colors at night, sort of like Batman. Get them here.

Humans in Treehouses in the Near Future?

Posted in design with tags , , on December 4, 2007 by Jarrod

Eco-architect Mitchell Joachim seems to think so with his somewhat revolutionary and ambitious project entitled Terraform. Essentially Mr. Joachim claims that the entire modern construction process requires a lot of energy; from the actually razing of the trees, to their transportation to a construction site and that that our planet would be a lot better without these wasteful processes. He wants to eliminate all of that by growing structures on site and having buildings that are entirely organic. Are you skeptical of Mr. Joachim’s claims? Watch the video below and see if you are convinced to whether or not this is a viable technology for the future.
