[SO] back // Ups & Downz

hallo germany, hallo Europez

what an action packed april this one has been…or not. The truth is that the FG team has been keeping one eye out for random lols here and there… Truth is that there were quite a few of them, but we aint no haterz, so were not gonna focus only one the bad side…

So lets start with our Ups and Downz for April.

UP #1

SCi-Arc

Now, we all know that we are not so in fond of SciArc and their tactics but we have to admit it when we see something we actually like. Figuring on the top, and only entry, of the UP category this random chinese dude, who DISSOBEYED his tutors instructions to FULLY PARAMETRISIZE his project, amd had the balls to use his Photoshop skillz for once in that school…No need to say this guy failed his semester…lolzz

-like bringing knives to a gunfight..wa?-

FG MEMO

WE ARE FUTURE GIRAFFES.

WE ARE INTERNET CELEBRITIES.

WE ARE LEGION.

AND

WE APPROVE THESE HOT CHICKS FROM SCIARC.

♥♥ MAKENZIE ♥♥

*FG approved*

DOWN #1

Dezeen.

yes yes, we know that every time your first year tutor asks you do find some refferences for your project, most of you botz run like headless chickens to Dezeen’s homepage, but..

THIS IS GETTING PHAKING ANNOYING!

Unfortunately the most interesting articles lately on dezeen are the mixtape articles from five years ago…

THIS IS GETTING PHAKING ANNOYING!

DOWN #2

STARCHITECTS.

So, what up with our so precious idols…?no, seriously…

Zaha is like trying to boost her popularity through random design fairs( last she was spotted at Milan’s Design Fair, being interviewed by a random chinese dezeen intern…’nuff said), Gehry is still locked in his private room, having an eye-to-eye showdown with a koutsomoura*(scroll down to see what koutsomoura means) in order to find inspiration, and The BIG is still playing his ball-even though his playing volleyball with tennis balls…- and Rem has gone guerilla, withdrawn in russia and launching his strategic operations, undercover mode.

FG TIP 2 STARCHITECTS:

guys, hire an image consultant, new 3d monkeys, more hot secretaries…

And for the end, another classical case of

“WHO COPIED WHO??”

IKEA reveals cardboard camera & b.a.c.k ?

As you will notice in the near future le FG team is almost back in le HIT mode [oooh yeaah]. For the moment, just a small “SS” post

Digital Camera made out of Cardboard

At the recent Fuorisalone event, a design expo held in Milan, IKEA gave out branded cameras in its press kit to media attendees. The simplistic cardboard camera has built-in memory that can store up to 40 digital photos. It’s powered by two AA-sized batteries and has a pull-out USB connector so you can transfer the photos to your computer. Once you’ve reached 40 photos, you can wipe out the internal memory and start over again.

IKEA’s disposable camera probably won’t be able to handle the wear and tear of ordinary cameras, but it’s certainly a nifty gadget for a branded merchandise.
