Sea Level Rise in Real Life

When crediting the illustrations and video, please credit Nickolay Lamm from StorageFront.com.

I’m very happy with the amount of media coverage my sea level rise project has gotten. And I made a short video out of all the images.

I’m surprised at the amount of people calling this a “liberal agenda”. When I was making these illustrations, I based them off sea level rise maps from Climate Central, not someone’s wild imagination.

I feel this quote sums up my illustrations…

“As human beings, we are vulnerable to confusing the unprecedented with the improbable. In our everyday experience, if something has never happened before, we are generally safe in assuming it is not going to happen in the future, but the exceptions can kill you and climate change is one of those exceptions.”
Al Gore

What if the Budget iPhone Came in Translucent Plastic?

Many people are talking about the next iPhone. The talk of the budget iPhone isn’t likely to get anyone excited, but what if Apple thought “different” and created a nostalgic budget iPhone like this?

What Will the Royal Baby Look Like at 25?

Daughter and Son

There’s no way we can predict what the Royal Baby will look like as a young adult, but we can certainly make some educated guesses.

I consulted with a graduate student from MIT who studies genetics. Her hypotheses are based on general trends scientists have noticed in studying genetics of facial features. Nothing definitive can be made about the future appearance of the daughter and son. Hypothesizing what the child may look like is simply a matter of which traits are more dominant than others…

  • The child has a 50% chance of having green eyes (like Kate) and 50% chance of having blue eyes (like Will). So, in the illustrations, the daughter has blue eyes and the son has blue eyes
  • Almond eyes tend to be dominant over round eyes. Kate has almond eyes, so it’s a good bet that her children will have almond eyes.
  • Kate’s olive skin color is dominant over the lighter skin of Price William, so there’s a strong chance the child will have Kate’s skin type.
  • Kate’s dark hair is dominant over William’s light hair, so the children will likely have dark brown hair like Kate.
  • William and Kate do not have widow’s peaks, so their child will not have this trait.
  • Kate has dimples, which is a dominant trait. So it’s likely that her dimples will be passed down to her children.
  • Kate and Will have free earlobes, which is a dominant trait. So it’s likely their kids will have this trait.
  • Because broad lips are dominant over thin lips, and because broad lips seem to have a history in the Royal Family, it’s likely that the children will have broad lips.
  • Because both Will and Kate have oval faces, and because oval faces are dominant over square shaped faces, it’s likely that their kids will have oval shaped faces.
  • Heart-shaped faces tend to be a characteristic of female faces, so Kate’s daughters will probably take after her heart-shaped face while her son’s will have jawlines more similar to Will.

How to Make Google Glass Look Normal

 

The above concept turns Google Glass into a bluetooth style headset. The hardware is behind the head. If Google were to actually implement this design, the strap behind the head would likely have to be thicker.

Google may also turn to a more stable design in which the hardware is throughout the frame.

Thank you to Business Insider, BGR, and more for publishing this alternative Google Glass concept.

How to Make the iWatch Something You Want to Buy?

Even if the iWatch can’t be on the same level as the iPhone or the iPad, I believe it can still be something that captures our imagination. It can still be as easy to use and beautiful as any other Apple product…

I made the above concept for MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, a large UK voucher site. The concept borrows from Apple’s spiral navigation patent.

Thank you to Forbes, Huffington Post, BGR, ZDNet, International Business Times, Computer World, LATimes, and more for publishing my vision of what the iWatch can look like.
