1960′s TV show replicating the Solomon Asch conformity experiment demonstrating the degree to which an individual’s own opinions are influenced by those of a majority group.
However, it’s worth noting that the ratio of people who conform really matters and crowd conformity decreases the moment one person decide to go against the crowd.

SHOULD I DRINK THIS FUCKING BEER? [sic]. A fun way to discover (predominantly American) craft beer created by “a fan of good beer and wants to see it thrive.”
Why else? Because “Fuck You, InBev.”
(Wait, do I work for any InBev brands? …no? Cool. Umm, yeah, fuck you InBev!)
Seulbi, a Graduate in Industrial design at Rhode Island School of Design designed this wonderful burger take-out concept.
People nowadays tend to more rely on having take-out food because their eating habit has changed due to their busy life. However, despite the fact that a number of take-out containers have been designed, packages for take-out burger meal are not really developed so far.
Therefore, this package is designed to provide a more convenient way of take-out for fast food industry as well as its customers by designing handy carrier for take-out burger meal consisted of a burger, french-fries, and soda.
The carrier will reduce the volume by about 50% compared to that today because I tried to simplify the design and minimize the amount of paper used with a hook for French fries, a sleeve for a burger, and a hole for soda drink, which causes people to carry it easier, and more materials saving. It is one-handed, convenient, practical, and compact, so your hands can be more free by holding all in one.

Well, no. It turns it’s no more than a very well made Kickstarter ‘proof of concept’ video for by Michael Lacanilao. Unfortunately the funding was unsuccessful, raising only $940 of it’s $12,000 goal. Probably due to the architect student’s inability to bend the laws of physics.

These 3D printed mobiles are the result of a collaboration between Marco Mahler, a kinetic sculptor specializing in mobiles, and Henry Segerman a research fellow in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne.
The mobiles are printed to order and thus will not run out of stock, which is nice.
