Gaining Momentum

with 8 comments


Another Lost Project – The Quantitative and Qualitative Measuring Devices – are gaining a little momentum. A few of these Good Fast Cheap Triangles will be offered for ‘uesr testing’ soon. More drawings and devices to come.

As an update. Julian writes more intelligently about the conversations around these devices and drawings. His fine articulation can be found here http://www.nearfuturelaboratory.com/2009/05/18/measuring-the-immeasurable/

  8. You must produce these. …and not just because I want one for my office. I can only assume that many places would love to sell this. ThinkGeek.com for starters would be a perfect company to approach with this wonderfully cool desk necessity for web designers/developers! Kudos. Love the brass (and wood) versions, great work.
