Every Indian child is familiar with being woken up and pushed out of bed because the maid wants to do her monthly ceiling cleaning in the morning. Cobwebs gather in the crevices, and come fluttering down when dusted. Now I’m staring at a solution so obvious, I wonder what exactly these broom-makers were up to all these years!
The Funnel Broom is literally the simplest thing. You’ve got your broom, and a funnel below it. Sweep them cobwebs, catch them cobwebs, and most importantly, dont wake them children up at 7 in the morning on a Sunday!
The Funnel Broom (as no surprise!) is the recipient of the famed the Red dot Best of the Best Award for the year [...]
The Galapagos Archipelago is a truly unique place. It is a chain of islands of the coast of Ecuador. They are where Darwin found the specimens that lead to his theory of evolution, and where the Grant family did their amazing biological research.
Just as a quick preface I don’t believe in over editing my photos. All that I have done to these is small amounts of cropping, hue + saturation work, as well as fine tuning of the exposures..
I took the trip in June and now have all of the photos ready to share.
The first photo, Ohana, shows three sea lions bathing in the sun. In the heat of the day it is common to see these adorable [...]
This candidate for the Braun Contest, called “Distance Less,” uses technology to bring families closer. It’s aimed at elderly users and focuses on a simplistic, easy-to-use interface. Children and grandchildren can record videos on their computer or iPhone and send the media directly to the D-Less device. The recorded video is then projected in an easy-to-see large scale picture on the wall or other surface. It’s particularly useful for users who suffer from diseases associated with memory loss, such as Alzheimers, in remembering family members.

Flore is the first wearable device for diabetics that integrates biometrics to help alleviate the stress of managing the disease. The small device serves not only as a glucometer, but also as a motivation to make healthier choices in nutrition and physical activity. It consolidates each individual action that a diabetic performs on a daily basis into one device to help live normal life despite the disease. It can be worn as a stand-alone unit or as a clip with the optional silicone sleeve jacket. It also serves as a tele-communicator with the patient’s provider, sending updated health data on a regular basis for consistent and constant monitoring. It also has the capability [...]
I’m a 22 years old photographer based in Warsaw, Poland, keen on capturing the views of this city from the roofs of its highest skyscrapers. Warsaw has a tragic history – 71 years ago it was burned to ashes after the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Now, after all these years, it’s becoming a proud and big metropolis.
A few months ago, I realized there weren’t any good quality photos of Warsaw shot from above the city center or taken by night. It suddenly became my dream to be the first one to do this. I did some research and found out it was an area strictly controlled by many institutions, and you needed a special two-engine helicopter to fly here. [...]
I am more of a traveler than a tourist. My favorite parts of trips are meeting people from around the world and sharing stories.
On a trip to Kyoto, Japan this month I was shocked at the number of pictures people took. Everywhere we were, all we heard was click click click and all we saw was selfie sticks. The majority of pictures are never looked at again. I kept asking myself, how do we make our pictures more precious?
While documenting my trip, I decided to reduce my pictorial representation and make it more meaningful by adding text – particularly in the form of a traditional Japanese poem, the Haiku.
A Haiku is a [...]
Recently, my geeky hobby photography went viral. I saw my photos pop up on blogs, websites and even in a clickbait article after I posted my first article on here. Since then I’ve taken some more photos in and around London and also on trips away to Malta and Dublin, so I thought I’d write a “part two”.
When more people started following my Instagram, I had loads of messages from people asking for ideas and tips on how to create photos in the way I do. So I decided that I would create a cut-out kit, filled with pre-made cut-outs that were designed so that people could use them anywhere to create their own quirky photos. I launched a Kickstarter [...]
