Bulavkus USB Flash Drive 

A memory stick in the form of a safety pin:

Bulavkus—a USB flash drive disguised as a classic safety pin—keeps your data safely pinned.
For finding Bulavkus in a flash, simply fasten to any fabric material and spare yourself frustration of digging through pockets.
Wear your data proudly.

Why font size does not (really) relate to how big it is

[…] I set out to find out which part of my 15px Verdana is actually 15px in width or height. The only problem was that I could’t find any part because there was none.


According to Thomas Phinney’s great Article em equals the font’s point size which is a grid of an arbitrary number of units (mostly 1000 or 2048 UPM/Units Per Em) into which the glyphs are drawn.

The food truck craze has officially hit Manila, Philippines by way of the Guactruck, a modern mobile eatery full of sustainable initiatives. The truck itself is a used delivery truck that has been outfitted locally with LED and energy-saving lighting.

Too bad this Filipino-Mexican food truck can’t swing its way elsewhere in the world for a peek at the truck and a chance to taste the delicious-looking food.

The design for the packaging is a creative solution to the wastefulness that most containers are today with it’s single cardboard, origami-inspired design. It’s made of biodegradable paperboard that is easy to recycle. Customers are encouraged to bring their used packaging back and will receive a free meal once they’ve returned 10. The packaging will then be sent for recycling. All of the cutlery used is made from cornstarch and biodegrades within 90 days.
