Comments Off on Aether & Hemera’s interactive mixed-media installation raises awareness of pollinators

Art and design studio Aether & Hemera have created Pollinators, an interactive installation that uses mixed media to raise awareness about the belief that pollinator populations are in continual decline . Currently installed in England’s DLI Museum , the artwork comprises ten interactive birdhouses connected by cables arranged in the shape of a tree. Each birdhouse has a speaker that can be triggered to make sound using a mobile phone or tablet. The installation will remain at the DLI Museum in Durham until January 10, 2016, after which it will be shown at Central Art Gallery, Ashton-under-Lyne and later at Towneley Hall in Burnley. + Aether & Hemera The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on The sleek Pen Uno is one of the most minimal writing instruments in the world

Pen Uno is an extremely minimal pen designed to be both a pleasure to write with and beautiful to look at. At only 5.3mm (7/32in) in wide, it is one of the slimmest pens ever manufactured, yet it is very comfortable to use because its holding barrel is slightly wider. This barrel also serves as a twisting cap that protects the pen tip when not in use. Pen Uno is precision-machined out of space-grade aluminum and anodized in four distinct colors: space grey, silver, gold, and rose gold. Pen Uno uses the widely available Hi-Tec-C Coleto gel ink cartridge. This cartridge writes exactly the same as the regular Hi-Tec-C cartridge but it is much slimmer in diameter because it was designed for a multi-color pen system. Taking advantage of this super slim cartridge, the designers were able to construct what is one of the most minimal pens ever designed. + Pen Uno on Kickstarter

Hundreds of world leaders are gathered in Paris to hash out a deal to save the planet from future climate change , but in the meantime, Koen Olthuis and the rest of the Waterstudio crew are working on solutions that we can use today.

Called The Parthenon, the floating breakwater not only stems the crash of water pushing into a harbor, but harvests the tremendous energy a wall of water like that can generate.
