“Off”: A Clever Door Handler Reminder Help Save Energy

Designed by Eun Ah Kim, Jinhyuk Rho & Maria Rho, “Off” is a door handle with connections to your mains like gas supply and electricity. Simply switch off both or either one of the services by rotating the dial and flip it back to activate it all. With “Off” we don’t need to keep locking and opening the door to check before we leave. Sounds great, just wonder, where the handler should be installed? And how we make sure only the family members have the rights to turn things off. Since you definitely don’t want a prankster or and intruder turn off your utilities, includes your security system, from outside. It’s better work with key or password![source]

Winter Wonderland: Beautiful Infrared Photography by Maria Netsounski

Basically speaking you are simply blocking out visible light while letting the invisible light come inside the camera lens. In this series entitled IR, Netsounski snaps shots of tropical hotspots (no pun intended) and, using infrared technology, distorts the colors in a beautiful way. Vivid shades of green and yellow are muted in the photos, while retaining a strong blue tone. What’s left is a striking combination of icy whites and blues. This creates such a surreal output, just like a fairy tale winter wonderland with topical plants and environment around. Amazing!
