MC Squares – modular, dry-erase system designed for high-tech, learning, and creative spaces

mc squares

MC Squares are a modular, dry-erase system designed for high-tech, learning, and creative spaces.  The MC Squares system was developed to pull focus from the facilitator and encourage everyone to join in on the creative process.

MC Squares is one of the featured exhibitors at the DaVinci Inventor Showcase. The Inventor Showcase will take place October 10-11, 2015 at the NoCo Maker Faire. You will have a chance to take a look at the MC Squares and many other amazing inventions.

Project Ara: Motorola And 3D Systems will 3D-print modular cell phones

3D printed modular cell phone.

Motorola announced last month a plan for a modular smartphone. Project Ara will be a simple way for users to individualize their phones, swapping out parts like the battery and camera until users have a phone that’s just for them. They plan on doing that with 3-D printing.

Modular Mobile Green River Homes

Looks like a great place to park your housing complex

The closer you come to the center of a city the more difficult it is to find unused space available for new construction, except perhaps at the cost of all-too-valuable public parks and other civic places. Building above and below bridges is thus of increasing interest to engaged urban designers around the world.
Like products on shelves, this modular housing system is designed by h3ar to accommodate homes that are plugged into a grid, occupied for a period of time and then removed when necessary. Much like cargo container architecture and other standardized systems, this design is meant for an ever-more-mobile as well as increasingly crowded world.
The location on the water is also no accident: multistory structures become much more accessible by boat-borne cranes already passing along the river, or modified container ships. Aside from a core steel framework each building operates independently and can be pulled back out and shipped somewhere else as needed.

Example of a BioWall 

We’ve all seen them in action (sort of), so now it is time to check them out on a new level and get at least a cursory look at the different off-the-shelf options out there for living walls. A few select companies are offering systems that are available to North American buyers and beyond. Here’s a summary of what I have found to date…  (Pics)

The Walking House

Sure, when the oil shortage becomes oil-no-more, it would be nice to drive around in search of fuel like Mad Max, but what would be even better is to have your own movable home to wander the wasteland in. Something on legs that can roam anywhere. Something like this. But faster.

Electrolux Flatshare Fridge Designed to be Cool Modular

Color-coded compartments for specific food groups

The annual Electrolux Design Lab never fails to amaze us with either staggeringly useful or very silly concepts for the home. This modular fridge, designed to keep each student’s baked beans completely separate falls into the former category.

A Modular Sound Toy

This brightly colored modular recorder is made up of detachable cylinders that can each be separately loaded with a unique digital sound (either by using a PC to drag-and-drop it or by using it to manually record input) which can then be played with a push of a button.
