Toys Non-Digital

Interesting set off toys found in a silver pan tray. 


A couple of dogs, some Play-Doh, a crayon, and a fighter plane. 


Off to the side (not pictured) are the Legos. 


Interesting with what competes with video games and phone apps these days. 


(Note: 85% of the world’s toys are now made in China!)


Frankly, there is still a lot to be said for the creative play of yesteryear. 😉

Baby Shower Centerpiece

What a cool centerpiece for a colleague’s baby shower.

 

All those rolled up and tiered diapers and baby toys. 


Creative and fun-looking and the couple having the baby gets to keep all the goodies and put them to good use hopefully.


Nice to celebrate even with smelly diapers to be. 😉

Creative Clock With Cars

Thought this was a pretty cool clock. 


Instead of just giving you the time (here it is 20:52 or 8:52 pm), the numbers are made up of 3-7 little cars.


When a number changes, cars either drive on or off to form the new ones.


(The “whole” clock is greater than the sum of its cars, which are the “parts”.)


And then some of the drivers actually get out of the car to schmooze or maybe clean their car. 


Very creative and it makes you think.


That’s a good thing. 😉

Artechouse = Art + Tech + House

This place was really cool in Washington, D.C. 



Artechouse = Art + Tech + House. 



Great immersive technology, art, music, dance, and light show. 



Highly recommend it!



This exhibit “Lucid Motion” was by Japanese artist Daito Manabe X Rhizomatiks Research.



They also had a nice augmented reality display. 



Had fun with the clan. 



Hope you enjoy!

This Is What You Smell

Great sign at the nut stand at Sugarloaf Festival.

“This Is What You Smell!”


Hot cinnamon pecans or almonds. 


Wow, did that smell nice.


I got a tiny bag of the pecans, and when I opened it, the smell and taste that hot cinnamon really took over. 


Were there other smells present as well?


Probably, but I chose to focus on the cinnamon nuts. 


The other smells will have to wait for their special sign and appropriate attention to deal with it. 😉
