Moto Restaurant


The Moto is a restaurant located in the downtown of Chicago, with lead chef Homaro Cantu, its main focus is in molecular gastronomy.  “Molecular gastronomy is a sub discipline of food science that seeks to investigate, explain and make practical use of the physical and chemical transformations of ingredients that occur while cooking, as well as the social, artistic and technical components of culinary and gastronomic phenomena in general.”

With that in mind the types of dishes served here are pretty much a mind fuck and there take on classical dishes. You can either have the 15 course dinners were 5 are entrees, 5 are main courses and the last five are deserts. Each varying in the presentation in the dishes for example: there take on desert is a smore shaped like a bomb with chocolate cover, inside is a liquefied graham cracker served over fluff, which explodes in your mouth. A dish Cuban inspired that the food is in shape of a cigar and the ashes are the condiments served over an ash tray.  

If you’re ready for a mind twisting meal and not afraid to pay at least 200 for the whole course of one plate then you should check it out, it’s an experience you should take.

Nook Color


The nook color is an electronic reader, meaning it’s just like the kindle but instead of being from Amazon, Barnes and Nobel decided to make one too. Its every readers dream to have one. With the nook you can purchase eBooks, magazines, newspapers, apps, etc. always updated with the latest issue of magazines and newspaper. There is  one downsize, if you don’t have an USA or Canada credit card its pretty much useless for you because it asks you for it, for any download even if its free. The awesome stuff it’s got is you can highlight paragraphs, click on a word you don’t get and in real time look up the definition, not have to leaving the page you’re in.

Paper Sk8boards


There 2 Mexican brothers, Mauricio and Sebastian Lara turned a mistake and made something awesome out of it. 

They were trying to create this book that commemorated a decade of their work but something went wrong in the printing processes so they got stuck with several thousand bogus copies. They started brainstorming on what to do with these books and decided to take all this books and use it as there building block. 

What they came up with was; use this books and create skate boards with them. The skateboards get the integrity from the paper mixing it up with resin and this is what the created. 

Mercedes new car


This Mercedes F-cell hydrogen electric drive car is “invisible to the environment” because it produces zero emissions. Instead of pollution from this cars tailpipe you get water. 

The way they decided to promote this new car was to make it invisible and drive it around town. How did they make it invisible? Well that is for you to find out and trip around with your theories. 

Chaise Triplette


What we have here is one of Paul Menand’s creations; he took the whole stacking up chairs idea and made it in his on creative way.

 How stacking seems to be done is taking the same chair and stacking them up one on top of the other, creating this vertical storage. He switched this and made it that one chair breaks up into three chairs. This chair is still a prototype and kind of rickety on wood, he’s planning on changing the material to a more resilient one.

The GPS fabricators, Tom tom are launching a new global positioning system that lets you choose from various Star wars characters to guide you on your journey to a galaxy far far away. Imagine Darth Vader telling you to turn right with the fear of him force choking you if you don't.

Why youusaaa donttaaa choooosee mee.

Because marble statues are to mainstream…


I’ve decided to switch my blog from Spanish to English, a more international language. So forgive me for the miss used grammar, etc. helps me practice my English.

 This light sculptures were created by a Japanese industrial design engineer, named Makoto Tojikil. By the manipulating and positioning LED lights he was able to represent various figures or sculptures.  He switch careers from designer to artist in 2003.

 “An object is seen when our eyes capture light that is reflected from the object. If we extract just the light that is reflected from ‘something,’ are we still in the presence of that ‘something?’ Using contours of light, I try to express this ‘something.’” We envision all sorts of opportunities for brands to use this type of sculpture at events, launches, stores, showrooms… - Tuija Seipell.
