It’s hard not to bask in the glow of the Internet when it provides you with such a convenient way to access such a vast amount of news and information. But here are some things that your digital news can’t do~
3D printing method developed by Ji Shi uses robotic arm and biomimicry, where the output form is inspired by the structure of spider web for greater strength:
Most of today’s researches and applications of robotic fabrication are limited to replicating human labor and raising efficiency of
manufacturing. However, in the project of Robotic 6-Axis 3D Printing,
we developed a fabrication strategy learning and emulating the law of
nature (referring to Chinese philosophy “师法自然 ”). By studying the
material and structure performance of 3D form in nature, we figured out a
way to incorporate biomimetic fabrication strategy into 3D printing
process. And by designing the special robotic-end effector (Tooling) and
utilizing the great flexibility and accuracy of KUKA robotics, the
biomimetic fabricating process has been fully realized.
The first publication devoted to web-to-print art and discourse. Issue #1 features 64 pages of new work by artists who use screen capture, image grab, site scrape and search query. Nearly all of the artists use the search engine for navigation and discovery, enacting a kind of performance with data. Presents mounting evidence of a web-to-print practice forming around the artist (as archivist), the web (as culture) and publishing (as both an old and a new schema for expressing the archive).
Features: Joachim Schmid, Penelope Umbrico, Mishka Henner, Clement Valla, David Horvitz, Chris Alexander, Christian Bök, Benjamin Shaykin, and Paul Soulellis. Texts by Hito Steyerl and Kenneth Goldsmith. Issue #2 contributors include Constant Dullaart, Daniel Temkin, James Bridle, John Zissovici, Cheryl Sourkes, Brian Droitcour, Tan Lin, Angela Genusa, Webdriver Torso, Rafaël Rozendaal, Olia Lialina and Cory Arcangel.
Seriously, this thing is jaw-dropping, a stratospheric amount of templates, add ons, vectors, fonts, illustrations, textures, brushes worthing $14,000 for only $54 (or $79 if you choose the whole complete package). We’re talking about 26 Gigabytes of files, any sane person would think this kind of thing is illegal or something like bittorent, but NO, this is a TOTAL legal License where you can use it for commercial projects, edit, adapt, print, delete or any thing that you want.
A photoset isn’t enough to show you all the files that are included in the package, but the whole package includes: 470 Vectors packs, 925 vector illustrations, 102 High Res Textures, 123 Photoshop and illustrator Addons, 67 photoshop brushes, 15 Tutorials, 110 Web & Print resources and UI Kits, 60 T-shirts designs, and 25 Family of Fonts. You will use this resources in the projects of your entire life.
But not all in this life is perfect or forever, this deal by inkydeals will last only a week, so don’t think to much and grab one of this package, I already have mine.

‘Soppy is a collection of Philippa Rice’s striking red, black, and white comics featuring herself and partner, cartoonist Luke Pearson, as they meet, embark on a relationship and move in together. Rice originally began publishing these comics online in 2013 and in print in the form of a couple of mini-comics, to incredibly popular reception, and this volume collects all those strips and new material. It’s interesting to note the slight change in delivery in the transition from web to print in relation to the culture of each; this is presented chronologically with a more traditionally liner narrative, where online the strips were shared on Tumblr in chunks, easy to share and digest, without need for greater context. The book captures the evolution of Rice and Pearson’s relationship as they get to know one another a little, go on holiday together and decide to move in, all communicated via small everyday tasks, gestures, and interactions: assembling bookshelves, receiving their first letter addressed to the both of them, arguing over whose turn it is to make the tea, changing sleeping positions over the course of the night. From silent sequences, splash pages, to nine-grid pages, Rice charts a sweet, appealing, and warm portrayal of two people, their lives and their love.’

“The Gruber Family Foundation was established in 1987 as a small philanthropic entity that has grown, over the years, into a larger family foundation. We worked with the foundation to create a minimal, but highly-crafted solution for their identity redesign. The foundation does not accept proposals, but seeks out organizations of their own choosing. The brand’s mark is intentionally understated to speak to this modest philosophy.”
