Hi Arif People
How are you all?

Inspired by a Black Hole, this speaker’s design makes you ‘gravitate’ towards it!

It stands to reason that if you pull inspiration from literally one of the most mysteriously awe-striking and beautiful phenomena in our universe, you’ll have a product that will echo those very same characteristics.

Behold the Black Hole Speaker… designed to attract your attention the way a black hole attracts all mass.
Based on the design of the Harman Kardon Aura, with a few tweaks and changes to give it intergalactic appeal, the Black Hole sports a warped torus design, with a hyperbolic base, and quite literally a black hole at the very center of the torus.
The Black Hole speaker comes with a speckled design on its black base that resembles stars being pulled into the void, along with a concentric ripple texture that is symbolic of a black hole’s ability to create ripples in time and space. It’s all incredibly symbolic!
The speaker runs on Bluetooth (because there are no wires in outer space)

The Black Hole Speaker is a winner of the A’ Design Award for the year 2020

AR Copy Paste tool allows users to capture images of physical objects and drop them into a computer

Designer and programmer Cyril Diagne has created an augmented reality tool that can capture images of real-world objects and add them to a computer program in a few seconds.

AR Copy Paste allows users to take a photo of an object in the real world and drop the image into a desktop computer program with a few simple actions on their smartphone.
The app uses augmented reality (AR) and machine learning technology to detect objects in the real world and isolate the image so that the background is automatically removed. Users then move the smartphone over their computer screen to paste the object image into a compatible computer program, such as Photoshop or InDesign.
This Week in Design History:
In 1885, Sarah E. Goode Is One of the First Black Women to Receive a U.S. Patent for Her Folding Cabinet Bed

Just because historians have done a poor job of archiving and sharing the legacy of black designers doesn't mean there isn't a rich history to explore.

This week in design history, we commemorate a moment that took place on July 14, 1885—when Sarah E. Goode became one of the first black woman to receive a U.S. patent for her folding cabinet bed. She holds the title alongside Judy Reed, who invented a dough kneading machine in 1880 and Miriam Benjamin in 1888, the inventor of a hotel chair that signaled the service of a waiter.
The story behind Goode's cabinet bed

Goode and her husband allegedly managed their furniture store in the same time period that tenement housing was at its peak— apartments were small, averaging around 25 by 100 feet in total.

Customers would visit the store with their concerns for maximizing their small spaces, which gave Goode an idea. She designed a "folding bed", which when not in use could be hidden away within a functional roll-top cabinet that included space for writing utensils and stationery.

The bed was engineered in such a way that the bed could be lifted, and folded without breaking, a novel feat at the time. There was also a supplementary system included in the design that supported the bed's center when unfolded and in use.
