In response to a couple of posts earlier (https://coelen.wordpress.com/2010/11/29/downloading-your-corkscrew/)
Why don’t people download and print full books? Technology is quite there, or is it not just the same as buying the book? Is it the effort that is the burden here?
Being a student who has ADHD, I need to take a pill a day to make sure I can focus and do not be distracted that soon. However, sometimes I tend to forget to take my pill (Concerta) and that is quite funny actually. I need my pill to remember taking it. However, that’s not possible. And I am not going to carry my bottle with pills around all day in case I forgot one. This post features the Medicin Wallet, a wallet with a small compartment that can hold up to three pills.

For the assignment we created this video, which focuses on the positive side of alcohol usage.
Lichtvervuiling in Eindhoven
I was not alone
This really is a photographers playground, smashed up buildings. Love it.
The amount of force that was required to bend this metal was huge, I guess.
At least it is cleaned up.
Long exposure 😉
Why is that one window whiter than the other ones?
This is the result of last semesters project Tweeting @ ID. Finding a way to improve information exchange in the Department of Industrial Design.
And a video with a possible scenario of use.
I once saw this thing online, it was an ad that should stop people from downloading. It said: You would’t download a car. And then I saw this motivational poster online (some internet meme). I laughed, but I really liked the thing. I would if I could. Because then you would have a car, nobody would be missing one and it is free. Where is the catch?
Right now I’m a B2.1 student. Yes I consider myself quite happy that I managed to get 60 points in 1 year. Do I consider myself lucky? Well from the percentages I should, but I think it is all thanks to me (yes I’m listing myself first, I eventually have the biggest influence on myself?) and my environment (including family and friends). So far everything, with a little dip two weeks ago, is going splendidly. But what if I keep up this pace? This blogpost is about what I think about my own future, studywise and inevitably I will bash the educational model of Industrial Design.
The current bottle that is being used for almost every soft drink, is quite well known but totally not eco-friendly in almost every aspect (they are 100% recycable though). Designer Andrew Kim has created the new coke bottle. Click the image to see the full detailed concept.
Another thing that did made me say: That’s clever. Apart from the detail that I would never use it because I also have other stuff to bring with me like a pen, some papers and my power adaptor, this concept is quite nice: Convert your laptop into a briefcase and walk right away. Just walk happily with your laptop, unprotected over the streets, in the rain, in the storm and even in a freaking blizzard. Yes this concept was really for the people who like never leave the house, in which case you wouldn’t need a laptop… But you got a laptop stand, that’s quite useful for RSI and stuff…
