In Ghana to see what happens with our old electronics. Love the weather, very comfortable -source
The first prototype of the plastic shredder. Unfortunately it doesn’t shred, looks more like a flatter. Probably the gaps in the knifes are to small. We’ll try out other versions next week.
Lots of amazing modules being developed at the second Ara Developer Conference.
This childish drawing shows our plan to slice machines in modules to make them modular. Builders, give us your feedback! http://www.preciousplastic.com/more-modular-machines/
Never thought i would end up as a coverboy

Starting a 30 days reboot. No eating, only drinking juices. Day 1
I’m a forgetful person. Everywhere I go I’ll carry my backpack along with me. 90% of the things I need on a daily routine are in there. Cables, cards, harddisk, laptop, charger, camera. Carrying them always with me means (mostly likely) I don’t forget things. Having a decent backpack is key for me. So i’m damn serious about it.
Repairing things, this used to be a way to keep our products longer. Adding a new shoe sole, use some glue to fix broken ceramic, stitch the hole in your shirt. Professions like shoemakers are slowly fading away and we, well, we just became to lazy to fix it ourselves. Broken baskets, fans, clothes, coffee machines, toys all end up on the junkyard. Just because they are a bit crippled.
Made this video about Design Academy Eindhoven together with Pim and Luc.
We went to see the progress of the Ara prototype. Here is an update video to show you how it looks.
We had a great time repairing junk with this gang, 謝謝
Over the last year I’ve been traveling a lot. One of the reasons is shooting videos all over the place. Shooting videos means carrying gear along with you. Camera, microphone, charger, hard-disc, phone and so forth. I got used to the gear, but get annoyed by carrying all the long charging cables with me. Either I forget to pack one, or they are tangled up into a big chunk at arrival. Read full story. →
