[ The Design Of Everyday Things ]

High Tech vs Low Tech


Check out this tripod mounted video camera. That Flip like video player looks lost on that tripod.

Interestingly the tripod design does not seem to be keeping up with the pace of miniturization the video camera “suffers” from.

PEZ Continues to be Relevant but in need of a Facelift

I love my new R2D2 PEZ dispenser. I was delighted to see that this product still exists and continues to be relevant. I bought it without much thought.

However do you think it is time to redesign the dispenser? The crummy plastic and wobbly spring could be made much better, especially if my PEZ candy is going to sit inside it.

I doubt many people will take it out of the pack. I know I won’t. How about you?

Fast food, slow experience.

Asians love their sauces. Mos Burger a Japanese fast food chain understands this by providing a little dish for dipping your sauce. Fast food, but a wonderfully slow eating experience.
