In the 1990s, the Web was 640 pixels wide. In the early 2000s, it grew to 800 pixels. A few years later, we decided it should be 1024 pixels. But five years ago, all of a sudden, something strange happened.
Not only the screen size… much more changed.
I’m not a cash type of person, I use my card for almost everything and so I can’t reward top service with a tip, until now. Dipjar is a new project designed to take the convenience of cards and combine it with the courtesy of tipping. It’s as simple as a cash tip jar but with the technology to accept and pass along tips left with credit and debit cards.
Heres how it works, once in hand, companies plug the DipJar into a power outlet to start accepting tips. Once the DipJar is on the countertop, customers can start dipping their cards into Dipjar and the system does the rest.
Kaiju Slide = Super Awesome
This playground Godzilla is nearly 30 feet tall and weighs 5 tons. All one has to do to ride down the slide is first climb a set of stairs leading right into the monster’s crotch.
“The reason why there’s a huge Godzilla at this park in Kanagawa is because in the first Godzilla film, the beast emerged out of the ocean at a nearby beach, known as Kanonzaki. To mark this, there was a Godzilla slide erected at the beach in 1958, which probably inspired other, far less impressive Godzilla slides on Japanese playgrounds throughout the country.The slide at Kanonzaki fell in to disrepair by the early 1970s. You can, however, still see “Godzilla’s footprint” at the shore. A new, far more impressive version of the slide was built at nearby Kurihama Flower Park in 1999. It still stands today.”
Using classic European delivery bikes as inspiration, the Faraday combines innovative technologies to create a revolutionary bicycle. In passing, the Faraday might just seem like an ordinary bike with a hint of style, but housed within the frame is a battery and motor to assist in your commute. With a 45-minute charge time and 15 miles of pedal assist, the Faraday adds some pep into your pedaling.
The Faraday team tell us a bit more about the bike:
“At Faraday Bicycles, design is about much more than just appearance – it’s about the entire rider experience. Despite its extraordinary capabilities (it’s electric!), we designed the Faraday Porteur to look and ride just like a familiar, high-quality bicycle. The Faraday Porteur looks and feels like a premium city bike, but it performs in a class of its own. Most importantly, the Faraday lets you work as much, or as little, as you want.”
Flat design is a graphic style that aims to avoid any graphic element providing no significant value to the structure of a template. This type of visual design
