Dentsu Vending Machine Grows 20,000 Heads of Lettuce a Year

November 2, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Did the apocalypse ruin your crops this year? We’ve got you covered. Made in Japan by Dentsu the portable Chef’s Farm can harvest up to 60 heads of lettuce daily without a bit of sunlight. The idea is to provide locally-sourced vegetables to restaurants without the need for transportation. One thing remains unclear: how much water, electricity, and nutrients must be continually pumped into this $90,000 garden to produce such massive quantities of tasty tasty vegetation. Regardless, a pretty brilliant concept. (via treehugger)

For four months only HaltaDefinizione is offering an interactive gallery of 10 masterpieces photographed with their high-definition technology. Up to 1,000 photos are stitched together to create each work, allowing you to zoom in and examine centuries old paintings millimeter by millimeter. Ooh Paul Biro can use it to hunt for some latent Boiticelli thumbprints!

How is this even possible? I have no idea. It’s printer witchcraft as far as I’m concerned. But I’m still renting one for my birthday.

The Resource Exhaustion Crisis Evacuation Safety Shelter

September 14, 2010

Christopher Jobson







Artist Chad Person has spent years constructing, fortifying, and concealing a safety shelter (dubbed RECESS) that will allow him to survive the collapse of civilization. He has constructed weapons and surveillance systems, detailed resource maps, as well as animal traps, solar ovens, and the general acquisition of survival skills.

RECESS began 2 years ago when I made my home in the southwest United States. Like much of the West, our reliance on the continuous import of vital resources (food, water, medical supplies) is unsustainable and untenable. Crisis preparedness is vital, and RECESS is my answer. It is a re-model, an insurance policy, an experiment, a test of personal mettle, and an obsession. Survival is everything.
