Rotterdam is Planting a Floating Forest ...

It is never pleasant to see trees cut down for development. No one enjoys that scene, but Rotterdam is taking steps to mitigate the unpleasantness. Inspired by an innovative art piece, the community is going to plant a small forest of transplanted trees that will float until needed for re-planting. How cool is that?

On March 16, 2016, a floating forest of 20 trees will be launched in Rotterdam, Holland. Inspired by an art piece named “In Search Of Habitus,” by artist Jorge Bakker, local art collective Mothership is behind this more ambitious project. After conducting a successful trial in 2014, the group felt it was ready to move forward.

Time to Hammer Out the Design ...

The hammer is one of the oldest tools known to man. Two million years old, in fact. So you would think that the testing and design phase would be done. But that isn't the case. One late entry into the design channel has bumped this tired old tool to a new level!

Check it out at Core77:

This beautiful-looking tool is called a Latthammer, and it's Germany's version of the carpenter's hammer. The square head ("for greater precision," as Picard's booth representative explained at Holz-Handwerk) is the first thing you notice, and then a closer look reveals this groove at the top:The sales rep's English wasn't great...
