west-of-west-aero-surfboard-designboom-01

For the Architecture and Design museum of Los Angeles, local studio West of West has designed and crafted ‘Aero’, a radical board that represents the history of experimental surf culture in Southern California. The product is built around a streamlined image of speed. Its profile blends the classic outlines of a planning hull with an asymmetrical split tail. While the top surface remains minimal, the bottom is extensively contoured along its length. as a result, ridges and valleys emerge from the massing, forming a new topography that reacts to agility and flow in unique ways.

Nike Unveils Manchester United’s 2014/15 Third Kit

nike-unveils-manchester-uniteds-2014-15-third-kit-1

Last night, here in the states, was the International Champions Cup match against Inter Milan in Washington, D.C., Nike unveiled Manchester United’s third kit for the 2014/15 campaign. Joining the white away kit and customary home red, the unique third kit harkens back to United’s long tradition of blue kits from the 1980s and also pays homage to 1968′s European Cup championship–the very first for an English side. Like the home and away kits, the third uniform is marked by a polo-style shirt–this time in a half-and-half appearance that sees a royal blue front coupled with a navy back. The two tones are then divided by a red stripe that stretches from the shoulders down along each side of the shirt, across the shorts, and all the way down to the socks.

The Barisieur – A Coffee Making Alarm Clock

coffee_alarm_01

Here’s one for the coffee drinkers amongst you – British designer Joshua Renouf has come up with a coffee making alarm clock which can wake you up with a fresh cup of joe. Entitled “The Barisieur”, the device also replaces the usual annoying alarm sound with the subtle noise of steel ball bearings vibrating as they boil the water through induction heating. It also encourages users to have a pre-bed ritual (something which can improve your sleep patterns), requiring them to prepare the beans, sugar, and milk for the next day’s use. Sadly, this isn’t yet available for the mass market.

Instagram Launches Bolt Messaging App

bolt_app_01

As messaging service Snapchat continues to grow in popularity, especially among the younger generations, Instagram has joined the messaging race by releasing a new standalone app called Bolt.

While only users in Singapore, South Africa, and New Zealand currently have access to it, it’s been unveiled that you sign up to the app with your phone number, so no Instagram or Facebook account required. When you open it up you’re shown the Bolt camera which, rather than a normal shutter button, has a scrollable list of your favorite friends. Tapping on one of them will instantly send them a photo. Tapping and holding will send them a video. You can only share with one person at a time and there’s no function to use pre-existing shots from your camera roll.

A new feature unseen in apps like Snapchat is a “shake to unsend” option, which allows users to shake their phone within the first few seconds of sending a picture or video in order to retract it. A release date for Bolt in the UK and US is yet to be announced, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out our Instagram account here and be sure to follow!
