Wall clock, calender and mortality reminder all wrapped up in one odd work of (post)modern art. The so-called ‘Chrono Shredder’ provides a palpable (or pulp-able?) physical reminder that all things are temporary, and we can never wind back time in this world.
Created by Susanna Hetrich, the simple red box shreds each day’s calender page as it passes, and leaves the tangled paper strands to curl, bunch and pile up on the floor in a messy heap. This fits right in the middle of her portfolio of creative work, which ranges from abstract installation artworks to apparel and photography.
She considers the calender a kind of performance art piece (albeit robotic rather than human in nature), and it is never stationary: each day slowly shreds in realtime so that minute changes are visible even on an hourly or second-to-second basis if one is watching closely. While not yet for sale, she does have plans to release a limited-edition version at some time in the future.


Verbatim is merging the digital office with the paper office in their new ‘clip-it’ USB drive which combines digital storage with the functionality of a paper clip. The new device was designed by arman emami and allows users to easily clip the drive onto papers holding them together and storing digital information. The USB key is available in black, white, yellow, green, pink, blue and orange with capacities of 2 GB and 4 GB. For now the new drive will only be available in Europe.


RIM revealed their own entry into the tablet market with their all new device named the blackberry playbook. The playbook features a 7-inch touch screen that rests in a 9.7mm thin tablet form factor. An all new blackberry tablet operating system is used on the device. Tech specs include a 1ghz dual core cpu, 1gb ram, front and rear facing cameras and an HD display outputting in 1080p at 1024 x 600. The playbook can surf the web, run email and also be used to run third party applications like games and an e-reader.



It looks like the cross-section of some log, sliced in half and set upon metal legs – a nice side table to set against a wall, its rounded edge facing outward. But there is a twist.
Like a crafty Chinese box puzzle or some elegant piece of Japanese origami, a hidden set of interior curves slides out from the core to create a three-quarter or full-circle pattern (or, one supposes, anything in between).
While such a design might not be terribly practical for, say, a dinner table, if one assumes this smaller secondary surface is for larger, more permanent and/or decorative objects, the slots should not pose much of a problem. You also can’t help but appreciate a piece of transforming furniture that works not only in its two ‘intended’ conditions, but also could function at any point between those extremes.


The sky turned into beautiful but scary before Katrina struck coastal areas of USA destructing everything coming in its way, but due to the grace of God and all the citizens of America we have managed to get out of that catastrophic situation and we have built all that area just like it was before and in some cases better than before.
