Virtual reality on your smartphone – Do it yourself (DIY) Guide! Google developers made this awesome DIY kit!I thought this was awesome and a great idea.
Virtual reality has made exciting progress over the past several years. However, developing for VR still requires expensive, specialized hardware. Thinking about how to make VR accessible to more people, a group of VR enthusiasts at Google experimented with using a smartphone to drive VR experiences.
The result is Cardboard, a no-frills enclosure that transforms a phone into a basic VR headset, and the accompanying open software toolkit that makes writing VR software as simple as building a web or mobile app.
By making it easy and inexpensive to experiment with VR, we hope to encourage developers to build the next generation of immersive digital experiences and make them available to everyone.

When danish designers are passionate classics are born! Danish designed Snowflower lamp is already a classic! My friends and fellow designers, Karina and Marcus has designed a lamp that has the feel og look of a classic like a Poul Henningsen lamp in a simple streamlined danish design. Snowflower comes in 2 versions: Floor lamp and Ceiling lamp. I really enjoy the way the lamp reacts to a little wind and movement in it’s environment. It’s like a living organism or almost like a leafs on a tree in the wind. I can’t wait to see what other cool limited edition designs the Snowflower lamp will come in sometime in the future maybe?
