    Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, oh my! SO MUCH SOCIAL MEDIA DEDICATED TO BABIES! I don’t know about you, but if I see one more baby picture on my newsfeed I might just go crazy. For some reason, mothers feel the need to document EVERY LITTLE THING that their precious little larvae humans do (clearly, I’m the motherly type). Read More
New technology to battle technological dependence? Makes sense. When I had a Smartphone I was prone to constantly checking my various apps out of fear that I would miss something that was happening. In fact, it is so easy to be sucked into a world of notifications and constant streams of information that people tend to tune the real world out completely. This trend is the inspiration for a new clothing line called FOCUS created by Japanese conceptual fashion designer Kunihiko Morinaga. Read More
Grace Choi wants you to have makeup that grows up with you, that you design and create yourself. It's like having your own personal M.A.C. boutique right in your bedroom. In the video of her demo at TechCrunch Disrupt, she's flippant, wise, savvy, speaking off the cuff--basically, the kind of woman you'd buy makeup from.  I can imagine myself hobbling away from her makeup counter with an armful of product, but remember this is the 21st century: at the end of this sales pitch, you'll be walking away with her $300 compact printer.

  Victoria Seimer, a Brooklyn-based graphic designer, posts her stunning work on tumblr under the name Wichoria. All of her work is phenomenal, but her weekly series entitled, “Human Error” is what first caught my eye. In this digital day and age, everyone is familiar with the layout of computer pop-ups, such as error messages and repeated reminders, which is partly what makes this series so powerful. Read More
  As if taking normal iPhone pictures of strangers was not invasive enough, the “Peek- I” takes voyeurism to a whole new level. No one is fooled into believing that “Spy Cam Peek-I” is for taking pictures “discretely at a 90 degree angle” for the sake of being the next James Bond…which is the current sell featured on the gadget’s Indigogo campaign.

  Don’t you just hate when an alarm clock screeches you awake? Meet the Little Rooster, a vibrator-alarm clock hybrid that is bound to do the wake you from your deepest slumber. The idea came from Tony Maggs, who explains that the futuristic product is designed to brighten the early morning blues.    And despite what it looks like, creators say it’s comfortable.

You're like, a total spaz if you weren't seriously obsessed with Cher's magical computer-organized closet in Clueless. It's disappointing to think that the film is nearly 20 years old and Ikea STILL hasn't come up with anything remotely similar. But what's this? A light in the distance? It would appear the wonderful world of technology has smiled upon us mere plebes: Cher's style system is now iPhone compatible! Check out these apps and quit, like, buggin' out, okay?  1.) Cloth Cloth is a wardrobe organizing app so beautiful it hurts. Read More
If you don't have an overly-critical mother like the rest of us, don't worry--Microsoft is developing a bra that will tell you when you need to stop eating. Yes, I don't know who thought this would be a good idea either, but it's a thing so let's talk about it.  As you can see in the highly-scientific diagram above, the bra is lined with an EKG that alerts the wearer when their heart rate indicates stress. This alert comes via a handy-dandy app that oh-so-kindly says "Hey, looks like you're stressed and we saw you bought that pack of Oreos yesterday...Don't do it, man. Read More
