Canadian photographer Todd McLellan pulled apart vintage gadgets such as cameras, telephones and typewriters to create museum-like studies from all the parts. His exploded views are the kind you’d really like to present to a client.

Product Reviews on Demand


We just got one of these cool E Ink Digital Display Phosphor Watches to review and were blown away when we first opened the box. The guys at Phosphor sent us an E Ink Digital Hour Clock Watch with Black Leather Band which features an ergonomic curved case with ultra-thin profile fit that fits comfortably on your wrist, looks sporty and modern, yet doesn’t overwhelm the outfit or make you look like like you’re showing off.

Each one of these cool E Ink Phosphor Watches features a digital display with numbers written via the revolutionary E Ink electronic paper display, a paper-like, high contrast readability that is in your face and definitely stands out. You can choose from a standard numeric digital display in one mode, a graphic hour clock display in another, and ability to switch between white-on-black to black-on-white time displays depending on your mood. Each watch also features a water resistance of 5 ATM – 50m and a built-in alarm. Overall, these are awesome watches for the modern man or woman who wants an easy-to-read, wear-anywhere watch and wants to stay light on the wallet. You can buy this Phosphor Unisex DH02 Digital Hour E-INK Curved Leather Band Watch for a price of $170.

  Work / Play Table

Originally posted at swissmiss

I am starting to have a new obsession: Multifunctional Tables and Desks. Take this table called Doppelleben. As its name suggests, it has a ‘double life’: Play on top, work below. The tabletop consists of two layers. If you need to use the lower layer, you can slide two lightweight panels down the sides. And when the work is done (or is safe to be interrupted), the panels come up creating a surface for dining and entertaining. This working/dining combo is merely a suggestion, of course. You can use the lower layer tabletop as a bookshelf, a utensil storage, a display for your collectables, or in any way you see fit.

Smart? YES!

  Mr. Gonzo

Originally posted at Danger! Danger!

I don’t know why the name Mr. Gonzo combined with the track Magic Cherry sounds so dirty to me, guess it’s my own fault.

Mr. Gonzo creates laid-back disco track that remisess back to older disco-house productions from Cassius and Daft Punk, well the whole French side of electronic music during the late 90′s. It’s chill, and it doesn’t try to be anything it’s not, if that makes any sense at all. It works with familiar formulas, but oh how I love them. Catchy and funky, that’s how babies are made, and this wonderful music.

Mr. Gonzo has an EP out called Extended Play Area on Folistar, you can snatch it through his soundcloud.

  James Delay.

James Delay is a producer/DJ based in East London. He’s just released a single, “Howl”. It’s a bit different from what we’d normally post, it is electronic and the intro is quite cute. But it’s definitely electronic music of the more ambient/minimal kind. Don’t let the subtlety fool you either, there is some quality stuff going on in this track.

James Delayはイーストロンドンをベースに活動中のプロデューサー/DJで、最近”Howl”というシングルをリリースしたばかりです。普段のポストとはちょっと違うテイストですが、エレクトロニカでイントロなんかとても可愛らしいです。絶対にアンビエント/ミニマルっていうよりかはエレクトロだと思うんですが。やりすぎてない感じの展開も素敵なのでぜひ聞いてみてください。

Howl by James Delay [Purchase on iTunes]

He also did this nice and laidback remix of Shinichi Osawa’s “Star Guitar”, can’t resist posting some Shinichi.. ;-)

彼はどうやら大沢伸一”Star Guitar”のレイドバックなリミックスも作ったようです。大沢伸一なのでついついポストしちゃいます。

Download – Shinichi Osawa – Shinichi Osawa – Star Guitar (James Delay Remix)
Preview –

Loads more stuff to be heard on his Soundcloud.

Before we get called out for nepotism, Mitzi bandmember Jad Lee blogs frequently for Bigstereo. We’re not posting Mitzi because Jad posts here but rather because this is a super solid release. If Mitzi sucked we would’ve told Jad to jog on. But that’s not the case. Let your ears decide.

Mitzi is made up of members of BMX, Comic Sans, Charlie Why! and The Gallery Kiss and is seeing its first release on Australia label Future Classic. “India” sums up the band’s sound — super chill disco with a dash of indie. Sounds something like the energy of Holy Ghost! mixed with a less edgy Echoes era Rapture but with a distinct Australian twist. Love.

Mitzi – “India”
