How about storing all your credit and debit cards, customer loyalty cards, everything in a swipable solution. That is what Coin aims to do. Your Coin is connected through a Bluetooth connection with your mobile device and the data is encrypted with a 128bit encryption and will deactivate itself when lost. Amazing.
An amazing article I came across through John Gruber. An awesome and lengthy article showing the design process of the well know Star Wars logo we've come to love. Through visualisations you get a good idea of the iterations they went through.
Warning: Will make you want to watch Star Wars again. Check out the full article here.
Brutalist Architecture recently sparked my interest. Concrete and very linear buildings that seem to lack face, but mostly impressive use of materials. I think there is a certain attraction in everything about it. For instance the impressive Buffalo City's Court Building. Imagine walking in this building to be judged. It communicates a very clear message, amazing. I recently came across a list of brutalist architectures on Wikipedia! It might not be everyone's particular choice, but I kinda digg the 1984-esque totalitarianism about it.
