With the massive success of Jurassic World, prehistoric creatures are once again the talk of dinnertime conversations around the globe. While you could just settle for some CGI dinosaurs and velociraptors, why not go for the real thing?
A group of scientists unearthed a massive bird fossil in South Carolina 30 years ago, and it has taken them until now to identify the fossil. The researchers have now identified the fossilized remains as the largest flying bird ever discovered.
While some of you are out thinking of April Fools’ pranks to pull off, 9-year old Daisy Morris just had a newly discovered prehistoric flying reptile named after her. The pterosaur is called Vertidraco daisymorrisae, and Daisy is what we call a winner at life.
Bowww-chica-boww-bowww. Scientists discovered fossils this month of ancient turtles that shows several mating pairs that went out in epic style. I imagine it went down like this, girl turtle shouts “OMG we are sinking!” Guy turtle says, “So what?”
Fossil has been toying with Bluetooth watches for a couple of years. Their latest concept will connect to your precious smartphone and give you tidbits that are supposed to stop you from digging into your pocket to grab your iPhone.
Poor dead bird.
Wait what the —
It’s a dead robo-bird! Artist/illustrator/futurechologist Justin Chase Black, more respectfully addressed as Mr. ThrowingChicken, recently finished the awesome looking Creatures of the Mechazoic Era, a series of sculptures that look like fossilized remains from a time yet to come.
What will future societies think of us when they excavate bits of iPods and N64 controllers? (That we had damn fine taste, that’s what!) Though we can never know, you can get a glimpse of the future of current tech thanks to one artist creating fake fossils from for (from?)
Despite his recent “everything I have designed is absolutely unnecessary” comment, I’m still a sucker for most everything Philippe Starck creates. His latest watch design – the Crystal Clear – is a real stunner.
Despite its name, the Crystal Clear actually sports an red face, not a clear one.
Design virtuoso Philippe Starck continues to crank out some beautifully minimal timepieces, and these are no exception. The Starck Palindrome series offers up a design so clean that it doesn’t even look like it has a minute hand at first glance.
The latest watches from renowned French designer Philippe Starck may look incredibly modern at first glance, but their roots are firmly grounded in analog technology.
Starck’s new Wrapped watches feature an electroplated face which conceals almost the entirety of the watch hands.
I’ve always been enamored of Phillipe Starck’s contemporary watch designs. Now the prolific designer is readying yet another beautiful watch for Fossil’s S+ARCK line.
The new (as yet unnamed) digital features a unique segmented design, which splits the time display from the day and date into two separate windows.
I’m always struck by the graceful simplicity of Phillipe Starck’s watch designs. His latest creations are as dramatic as anything else I’ve seen in his past collections. The highlight of these as-yet-unnamed watches is their unique see-through case design.
I was over on the Fossil website earlier today and stumbled onto this image of a new series of OLED (organic light emitting diode) based men’s watches that hasn’t yet been released.
From the looks of the picture, the watches will come in stainless and leather finishes, and will have a cool multi-colored display.
You can always count of Fossil to crank out some über-cool wristwatches. One of their latest creations mashes up the analog and digital worlds in a brilliant way.
The minute I saw Fossil’s Ana-Digi watch, I was reminded of that classic Star Trek episode with the half-white, half-black races who hated each other because of the color of each other’s skin.
