Handcrafted Para Hammock is Made From Over 700 Pieces of Walnut

Inhabitat - Mon, 2014-09-01 14:30

Hammocks are usually made for the outdoors, but Los Angeles-based furniture designer Chaffee Graham has created a stylish wooden version that we’re convinced would look just as great as an indoor statement piece. Designed by Graham’s furniture company 4th Period Woodshop, the Para Hammock is handcrafted out of over 700 pieces of walnut. The flexing wooden pieces are connected by paracord and are treated for all weather conditions and for durability.

Ch’ Air Inflatable Seat Cushion ensures your tush gets a comfortable place to sit on

Coolest Gadgets - Mon, 2014-09-01 14:30

If you happen to be a regular office drone, then I am quite sure that you do know the importance of having the right kind of computer peripherals to go along with your desktop – including a monitor that is easy on the eyes even after you have spent a few hours sitting in front of it directly, not to mention an ergonomic keyboard and mouse to make sure that your hands will not suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome too soon into your desk-bound career. Having said that, you might want to consider taking a closer look at the kind of chair you would be using, as that too, plays quite a significant factor in the long run of things. Assuming your boss or immediate superior does not see the need to get you one of these comfortable , posture correcting chairs that can cost quite a bomb, you might want to literally take things into your own hands with the $29.99 Ch’ Air Inflatable Seat Cushion.

Yes sir, it might not be able to turn your plastic chair into an expensively assembled piece of furniture just like that, but this does not mean your back and tush does not deserve a more comfortable seating experience! The Ch’ Air Inflatable Seat Cushion is touted to make any chair more comfortable, where it will help fill up the gap so that your back would be able to take advantage of the additional support. This is made possible thanks to the memory-foam layer, where it conforms to your body to help relieve pressure. Not only that, it takes just three good breaths to inflate, and the built-in strap will secure the cushion to your chair. Fret not if you spill some soda or coffee on it – the cover itself is removable and washable, as it comes in a foldable, packable design. This is certainly not the first inflatable chair that we have come across, and it won’t be the last, either.

Licensed images made free-to-use through embedded attribution

Springwise - Mon, 2014-09-01 14:29
Add / Remove

Back in 2012, stock and news photography agency Getty Images embarked on the Watermark Project, which redesigned the way it protected images from being used illegitimately and added a shortlink to make them more useful. Now, it's investing in a new service called IMGembed, which provides an easy and free way for anyone to use a licensed image on their site through HTML embedding, while ensuring creators get credited.

For a while now the web has posed a difficult dilemma for content creators — how can they take advantage of the exposure of online sharing while also being able to make money from their product? In the case of photography, it's usually as easy as a right click to own a version of an image found on the web, whether it's copyrighted or not. This is the reason that Getty has now handed over a part of its collection to IMGembed, where users can choose between free or paid premium use.

Much like video and widget embedding, the service gives users a code to insert into their blog posts or Twitter and Tumblr updates that automatically loads the image along with an attribution bar along the bottom. Site owners don't need to host the images, while companies such as Getty get more control over their content. The free service is good for those who will see lower than 10,000 impressions on their post, and only need image widths of 900px or less. The premium service gives users full usage control, unlimited impressions, up to 2000px image widths and takes away the attribution bar.

Below is an example of what an embedded photo from the service looks like:


Whether embedding is the right route to go down given the way that it can lead holes in blog posts when the original content gets taken down or licenses get changed will remain to be seen. However, IMGembed gives web users a legal and ethically sound way to use decent quality, watermark-free images without cost, while ensuring creators get proper attribution that can lead to revenue opportunities. Are there other ways to benefit both creators and consumers when it comes to digital content?
