The bus was purchased on Craigslist for $3000, and has had about $6000 in improvements. It’s not pocket change, but it’s less than a down payment on a home, and it’s less than I paid in tuition for my last semester of grad school. The majority of the work was completed in 15 weeks, just in time for my final review (although the first seven weeks were almost entirely design and prototyping, with the bulk of the construction completed in the last month and a half of the semester).


He brought a bus and turn it into a house. I wonder if it would be possible to do it locally.

Wireframing for the everyman - part 2

A couple of weeks ago I talked about the new POP app and all its wonder in getting your mobile concept out of your head and onto paper.

It gets better. I just came across this beautiful little tool set, sneakpeekit. These wonderful people have created free downloadable templates for your sketches. Use them to sketch a concept or get all pixel-precise and math it out with a grid system. They have templates for mobile, pads and browsers.

Now, I’m thinking if you pair these two together, you’re golden, right?

Reading into mobile design these days, starting to love #flat #ui. Along the way I found this tool.

Durable, reliable quality and inexpensive:  Nokia 105.  The really disruptive aspect of this phone is that it costs 15 Euros.  Great for a first phone or a second phone to take to the beach or a run.  It has an impressive standby time exceeding 30 days.  There wasn’t significant rework on the Ux other than driving changes for the color display, FM radio Ux and a few other minor elements.  This is an evolution of the S30 base pattern. 

Thesis:  You can innovate at low cost.

The design language delivers color, purity and craft at an amazingly affordable cost.  The editor of the NYT outlined this as the most disruptive announcement of MWC 2013 in Barcelona.

you can innovate at low cost This is so true, sometimes simplicity is the key. I like this,it’s great for NS.

Mailbox pushes the envelope (get it?) for apps aiming to make email sane. It is a brand new email client based on mobile gestures aiming to make email suck less and help you get to Inbox Zero. Mailbox has been called “the best email management app you’ll ever use.”
