Robert Bowen’s (Featured) creative mechanical, often otherworldly insects and various creatures will be on full display in his upcoming solo show, “Blasphemous Nature" which opens at Fifty 24PDX Gallery in Portland, Oregon on Thursday, August 7th. I’ve had a few chances to see Bowen’s work in person and it’s always a great adventure to look at as not only are the paintings beautiful but they really fill your mind with what-if’s.
International travel has never looked so appetizing.

This sleek electric bike features smart lights and a built-in lock
A team of designers in Seattle are building a bike that could be your new best option for navigating busy city streets. Called the Denny, the bike concept includes a number of clever features that make it a bit more useful than your average two-wheeler. Not only does it have a removable electric motor to give you a bit of a boost, as well as automatic gear shifting, but its detachable handlebar doubles as a lock, so you never have to worry about bringing one along.
"Facebook profile information that is publicly visible by default, for the first five years of the service" via What Is Public? — The Message — MediumProgrammers and engineers who create software with controls for privacy have moved in recent years to an on/off model where content is either viewable to the entire world or only to a list of people whom a user identifies as “friends”.

But we can’t let society’s norms be defined by which features are least expensive for storing on a database server in the cloud.
If you’ve ever brought a bike along on a flight or packed up the parts to ship across the country, you know that trying to move a bike around is expensive. It also tends to slightly offset some of the environmental benefits of riding, since a box holding a bulky frame takes up a lot of space on a delivery truck. That’s why this new design concept shrinks down a bike so it fits in a backpack.
