Ikepod Solaris SCB31..

28 08 2009

The iPod has been around since 2001.. Take note that watch brand Ikepod has been around since 1994.. So forget about the name.. Instead consider their product instead..

The item that I’m really diggin’ is the Solaris SCB31.. Dual face.. with independent movement for each face.. Hence dual time zones are possible.. Split color case also gives you dual color options.. The metal mesh straps are also an added bonus..





Mountain Research..

Welcome to the modern retreat house called Mountain Research in Nagano Japan.. The multi-level structure made from local pine houses most of the rooms (bath/den/kitchen/storage/etc).. save the permanent bright yellow tents.. which serve as sleeping quarters.. Very nice place to relax and enjoy both nature and a simple/modern lifestyle..

Digital Harinezumi..

23 08 2009

The tiny Digital Harinezumi looks to have bridged the gap between Lomography and modern digital photography..

Small 110 film cartridge size and form factor.. pop-up viewfinder.. plastic lens.. and specially designed sensor.. all combine to create Lomographic feel.. and the desired “flawed” effect..
