The Hospital Robot Buddy (rough translation from the Swedish Sjukhusroboten Kompis) is a graduate project from industrial designer Linus Sundblad that is meant to act as a friendly communications platform to family and friends for hospitalized children.

I have investigated the possibility of creating a relationship between patient and product; a companion that is always there for the child. I have also looked more closely at how communication could be increased between the sick child and her/his friends and parents at times when they are unable to be with the child.

Really enjoying these wooden sculptures by Efraïm Rodriguez Cobos who lives and works in Barcelona. He creates a large composite foundation from loose pieces of beechwood or sycamore and then carefully carves the figures, a process that creates interesting fragmentation within the final piece. He also has a fascination with ostriches. More

I would have been the most popular kid in grade school (and let’s be honest, probably high school too) if I had just had a secret Narnia room like this. Designed by Douglas Shepherd of Maple Seed Renovation in Portland who specializes in custom residential remodeling projects. I wonder if he could also build a fireman’s pole into the kitchen and a water slide from the roof? (via dornob) More

There are a couple of reasons I’m really excited to share these new Monster Friends prints from Familytree with you. First, their last series of posters sold out in less than three days so you probably only have about 10 more minutes to scoop up one of these for your bad self. Second, they glow in the freaking dark. Third, you’ve just gotta go to their web site and find the little light switch toggle beneath the posters to see them in the dark. More

Every day since kindergarten Rob Kimmel has sent his son to school with a post-it note and pen inside his lunchbox. On the colored paper is a half-completed illustration and half-completed story that his son then finishes. Holy cow, brilliant. Also really like “My favorite constellation is the Nerd“. I had a friend in grade school whose dad drew intricate pencil illustrations of space ships and scenes on his hard-boiled eggs and I always thought it was the coolest thing. More
