Nonsensical: Rage Rooms, Edible Packaging Design and more…

The Nonsensical returns this week to delve into the weird and wonderful worlds of mushroom packaging, test-based Chinese streetwear, rage rooms and genetic code injections.

You can’t say we don’t spoil you.

Edible Packaging Provides Sustainable Alternatives To Plastic

Turns out that since the 1950s us humans have produced over 18.3 BILLION TONNES OF PLASTIC and that there’s set to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2020. That is not OK.

There are some pretty amazing innovations coming out of the woodwork to fix this issue though. From mushroom packaging to fish edible six-pack rings to milk protein film, this lot really are leading the way for the sustainable packaging production of the future.

Rage Rooms Are A Thing

Yes you heard us right. You can now pay for the pleasure of smashing the bejeezus out of, well anything really. So next time you’re stressed out, take a sledgehammer to a TV, rather than your boss…

Up and Comers

We love celebrating emerging global talent and this list really does tick all the boxes. From genderless fashion to impeccable detail to ‘conceptual irony’, there’s an emerging label for everyone.

We love the concept behind Chinese streetwear brand, Myge. They test their ideas continuously “channeling what’s relevant in local youth culture and speaking out with original graphics and wearable silhouettes.”

The Healing Touch

So this is pretty mad. Scientists in Ohio have developed tech called Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT). This dime-sized silicone chip “injects genetic code into skin cells, turning those skin cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions,” according to a release.

Apparently it can heal organs in a “fraction of a second”… can you imagine the applications!
