Hippo Head Water Fountain

I guess it's better than taking a sip from an alligator head! ;-)

Pretty Brilliant Accessibility

Wow, that's pretty brilliant. 

Stairs and ramp in one.

Love thinking of those with disabilities as part of what we do!  ;-)

Nalgene Bottle Lights

Who knew that Nalgene bottles could be used as light fixtures. 

What a colorful display.

Creates a little mood lighting for that cool shopping experience. 

And inside is a water bottle for every adventure. 

Simply unscrew the bottle to change the light bulb.  ;-)

Metaverse Arriving Soon

This little guy looks like he's right out of the Metaverse. 

Follow me and let's hang out, play video games, have a meeting, or do a little shopping. 

It's a world within our world and nothing is beyond your imagination!  ;-)

Virtual Car Driving Into Garage

On the ramp into the garage is a cute wall mural of a car. 

With the wires, it's look like a plug-in electric vehicle. 

Go ahead, drive it on down.  

Good luck finding a spot. 

Take a ticket and stop to pay at the machine before you head out.

Invasion USA

There's an invasion going on here. 

This dragon is swooping over the side of this building. 

It's not Hollywood, but downtown Santa Fe. 

Shoot it with your laser blaster!

Or else he'll gobble you up and spit out your broken bones. ;-)

Wise Old Tree

Great wise old face on this tree!

All it takes is a well-placed eyes, nose, and mouth. 

Trees are people too.  ;-)

Flowers On Perfume

Wow!  What a beautiful flower cap on this perfume bottle.

I'd buy this just for the bottle; who cares what the perfume smells like. 

Seriously, this is some genius creative design!

Beautifully done!  ;-)

Flintstones Car(-Like)


Why do all the mechanic shops seem to have a car, like in this photo, lying around. 

Sort of reminds me of The Flintstones Car (from the TV Show originally aired in 60s).

No motor or anything; you would just stick your feet out the bottom and you would run while in the car. 

Stone Age answer to the need for an automobile. 

Hey whatever works and no need to recreate the wheel either.  ;-)

Baby Shower Centerpiece

What a cool centerpiece for a colleague's baby shower. 

All those rolled up and tiered diapers and baby toys. 

Creative and fun-looking and the couple having the baby gets to keep all the goodies and put them to good use hopefully.

Nice to celebrate even with smelly diapers to be. ;-)

Creative Clock With Cars

Thought this was a pretty cool clock. 

Instead of just giving you the time (here it is 20:52 or 8:52 pm), the numbers are made up of 3-7 little cars.

When a number changes, cars either drive on or off to form the new ones.

(The "whole" clock is greater than the sum of its cars, which are the "parts".)

And then some of the drivers actually get out of the car to schmooze or maybe clean their car. 

Very creative and it makes you think.

That's a good thing. ;-)

Artechouse = Art + Tech + House



This place was really cool in Washington, D.C. 

Artechouse = Art + Tech + House. 

Great immersive technology, art, music, dance, and light show. 

Highly recommend it!

This exhibit "Lucid Motion" was by Japanese artist Daito Manabe X Rhizomatiks Research.

They also had a nice augmented reality display. 

Had fun with the clan. 

Hope you enjoy!

This Is What You Smell

Great sign at the nut stand at Sugarloaf Festival.
"This Is What You Smell!"

Hot cinnamon pecans or almonds. 

Wow, did that smell nice.

I got a tiny bag of the pecans, and when I opened it, the smell and taste that hot cinnamon really took over. 

Were there other smells present as well?

Probably, but I chose to focus on the cinnamon nuts. 

The other smells will have to wait for their special sign and appropriate attention to deal with it. ;-)

Cool Clock in Amsterdam



Check out how the time changes in Amsterdam.

I guess automation hasn't put everyone out of a job yet. ;-)

Hyundai's Great All-Terrain Concept Car


Very impressed with the Hyundai concept "Walking Car."

It can drive, walk, and climb. 

I heard that this thing can even climb over walls and jump over gaps!

(Ah, I'm not going to say anything about border security with this--let's just hope the bad guys don't get this). 

This is the closest that we've come to Hollywood's Transformers.

This is much more than a vehicle for search and rescue--this is ALL-TERRAIN!

Great job Hyundai--I'd love to test drive this beauty!  ;-)

Not Every Problem Requires A High-Tech Solution

So I thought this was pretty smart.

Yes, it's a "Smart" car.

But more important is this guy parked his car in a very smart way. 

The spot was too small even for this micro urban car.

So he just parked it sideways--and poof it fits.

Also, look how easy it is for him to drive out of the spot when he's ready. 

Now, I'm not one to say whether this is legal or not (his rear wheels are on the sidewalk, of course).

Still there is something refreshing about this solution. 

Nothing high-tech about it -- he didn't need to move the cars further apart or shrink his own vehicle, rather just think out of the box. 

Frankly, it works, and I think this guy deserves the parking spot--so right on dude!  ;-)

Who Says Flying Can't Be More Enjoyable


This flight attendant is terrific here. 

She delivers the typical hum-drum public service announcements in a whole new way--now (maybe) you'll actually pay attention.

Smart cookie and fun sense of humor. 

Happy Friday and enjoy!

Trendy - Shoes and Bag In One

I thought this was a very creative ladies bag.

It combines two things that many love--shoes and bags!

No, you're not putting your shoes in the bag.

And you're definitely not wearing your bag on your feet (that's another blog on innovation).

In this case, the shoes (and legs) are the design on the bag itself and make up the shoulder straps to carry it. 

Creative and fun thinking, right?

Also, I like the design of bold colors of the red and white sneakers and the blue jeans on the black bag. 

This is both functional and cool, and I like the trend of "mixing it up."

The straps are the legs and shoes--pretty smart! ;-)
