Ever wonder what facial expression people make when they’re about to be hit by something via slingshot? No? Well, no need to keep guessing because the Sling Shot camera (designed by Sung Young Um & Jung Eun Yim) can help you to find out. Technically, sling shot takes pictures by vibration of elastic band. You can take surprised look pictures by stretching an elastic band. It can be folded when it is not used. The idea behind this concept camera is to free people from their inhibitions and let them relax in front of the camera instead of presenting the usual lock-jawed grimace. Flip out the y-shaped arms and pull on the cord and the lucky subject will recoil, then realize what’s going on, and then slump in relief with a genuine smile on their face. [link]
Dog is always regarded as human’s best friend and there is even a saying about “A dog is the only thing on this earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” As a dog owner myself, I can’t agree any more. He isn’t my pet but actual my family member. Right now, I am far away from my dog and every time when I saw him through the web cam, just made me miss him more. I am easily amazed by the relationship between dog and human. In this post, I rounded up 21 Emotionally Touching Photos of Relationship between Dogs and Humans. Hope you enjoy them and don’t hesitate to send us the moving photos of you and your dogs.

Cutting paper has been around for a long time in many cultures and traditions. Bovey Lee‘s work is inspired by Chinese paper cutting but at the same time defies it, breaking every traditional rule there is. Lee’s professional career as a cut paper artist came at the time when the medium, as interpreted by her peers, gradually gained traction and attention in the international art stage. In an exclusive interview with Design Boom, Lee shares the story behind the process. “Using the very same Chinese rice paper for calligraphy, I define what I do as drawing with a knife. When I cut paper, it is a visceral reaction and natural response to my roots and affection for precision, detail, and subtlety.” Below is some of Lee’s amazing work and you can find more on her website.

TBWA, an advertising agency in Milan, Italy had a brilliant idea for the inauguration of First Floor Under, a pop-vanguard culture magazine. First Floor Under’s first exhibition was about music piracy. What was TBWA’s brilliant plan? They launched a series of posters that include CDs forming images of famous musicians such as Bob Marley, Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, among others. That is one of the best designs I have ever seen, both creatively and craftily speaking, to create anti-piracy posters. The poster printing really drives the point that not only should artistic expression be respected, but also that the era of CDs did just that. They also created a slow motion video you can see at the end of the poster.
