Very cool new tablet design by Lenovo! If I were Apple, I think products like this would make me at least a little bit nervous. I'm not yet convinced the performance of the projector is outstanding but I'd like to try it out before making any final judgement.
I realize we've already covered Ross Lovegrove in our Tuesday Tribute but I recently found out Bernhardt Design celebrated its 125th anniversary by commissioning designers to create new furniture pieces for their brand and I thought the Anne Chair by Mr. Lovegrove was particularly interesting.
In his own words, "When thinking about this project, my starting point was the American courthouse chair. These chairs were such a visible part of the American landscape because of their very powerful presence.

Great attention to detail on this audio vacuum tube amplifier by Stefan Radev + Partners who have managed to create a beautiful analog accessory that compliments digital mobile devices. The level of craftsmanship, materials and visual cues create a luxurious retro aesthetic that stands in beautiful contrast to the modern simplicity of the Apple and Android devices they accompany.
Interesting kitchen knife set by Furtif. The blade uses many processes such as titanium carbide laser bonding to strengthen its stainless steel material to the point that it only needs to be sharpened once every 25 years!
Very inspiring video by Apple that celebrates creative thinking, risk taking, vision and ambition.
