Pillow blanket

By Netherland-based design studio Joon & Jung

‘This genius blanket is essentially a quilt made of thirty pillows. The blanket leaves one pillow missing in its design, allowing you to slide your head through the hole like a poncho.’

OH MY GOD GIMME IT.

I want this for my birthday.

I can see myself getting like hopelessly tangled up and dying in that thing

Modular carpet, built in small tiles rather than giant rolls, has a few sustainable-design superpowers. It’s scalable, so it can better fit any space without waste; you buy only as many tiles as you need, so you won’t end up needing to trim off as much excess. If you drop a glass of wine and the stain doesn’t come out, you can replace only the tiles that were casualties. With ordinary carpet, if one corner gets damaged and you want it to look better, you’d need to throw out the entire carpet….
The design above, called Cityscapes, is from a Slovakian design firm called ALLT, and inspired by patterns found in street pavements.

A Urine Powered Generator. An amazing accomplishment by four brilliant girls. The girls are are Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15).
 
 
  • 1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.

  • The system works like this:

    • Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen.
    • The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
    • The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
    • This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.

This is freaking AMAZING.

Don’t attach yourself to anyone who shows you the least bit of attention because you’re lonely. Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.
