China Green

China's stunning new green buildings.

The GreenPix Zero Energy Media Wall, is the world's largest color LED display combined with China's first photovoltaic system to be integrated into a glass curtain wall. It forms the curtain wall of the Xicui Entertainment Complex in Beijing, harvesting solar energy by day and using it to illuminate the screen after dark, much like a day’s climatic cycle.

Steve Jobs & the AppleCore

Main_cord-manager.jpgTonight I received the following email from my buddy Robin Peng who designed this sweet little solution for handling your iPod cord.

As you are probably aware early this week at Macworld, Steve Jobs unveiled the long awaited iPhone in San Francisco.

Later at the show, he walked through the convention floor and came around with his bodyguard to Handstands - our licensee distributor here in the US. They handed him the AppleCore and as he looked at the sample, they heard him exclaim “that’s genius!” as he continued walking off.

Suffice to say, we thought that was pretty cool.

I have one of the first prototypes of the AppleCore and I'll have to agree with Steve Jobs on this one, it's genius. The best part is just being able to play with the little thing. It just makes you smile.

Robin's told me that if he ever gets a cease and desist letter from Steve Jobs and Apple he's going to frame it. It sounds like that's not going to happen now. Perhaps there's still hope. Robins got a whole pipeline of products.
