First Edition

We spend time with a lot of people in the Sense Network from cities all around the world. We hear things, we see things, we share things.

What’s been most noticeable is the interest and intrigue in how ideas are formed, interpreted and reshaped as they travel around the world. From Gangnam Style to White Dress vs Blue Dress we are fascinated about how these simple ideas permeate and are reimagined across cultures.

No Nonsense Here…

(click titles for direct links)

The museum of failure in Stockholm:
It’s basically a building full of Google Glass and we’re not going to lie, we want to go.

Summer reading:
Books on the future of design for the win. An amazing write up… just watch the spines don’t melt on the beach.

Unwearable heels:
Japan take the battle of the memes to another level. If you catch our drift…

Sound waves that can levitate objects:
A potential breakthrough in medicine for improving the purity and potency of drugs delivered to the body – this is MENTAL.

Ikea Ads hit the spot:
As grocery retailers struggle to sort their figures out (check out this report from McKinsey for more information about this) these are some of the best food ads we’ve seen for AGES. Simple, easy on the eye and most importantly. Actionable.

Radiohead’s artist nails it in Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht:
And it’s even got a Thom Yorke soundtrack…

MIT get inked:
A tattoo that changes colour to act as a health tracker for diabetics.
