And the 2009 design of the year award goes to: Windows 7. I’m sure it will be better and what they have done in the past (now that they are looking to the mac OS for inspiration). Happy New Year!!!!

HEMA is a Dutch department store. The first store opened on November 4, 1926, in Amsterdam. Now there are 150 stores all over the Netherlands.
Take a look at HEMA’s product page – just wait a couple of seconds and watch what happens. DON’T click on any of the items in the picture, just wait. This company has a sense of humor and a great computer programmer, who has too much time on his hands.
Here is a handful of some pretty cool jewelry I found on etsy. This reminds me that I need to set up an etsy account to sell the jewelry my wife and I have made. Enjoy.
Pretty sweet. Only $60. Get it here.
THE COPENHAGEN WHEEL
The Copenhagen Wheel turns the bike you already own, quickly and easily into an electric bike with regeneration and real-time environmental sensing capabilities. The wheel harvests the energy you input while braking and cycling and stores it for when you need a bit of a boost. At the same time, sensors in the wheel are collecting information about air and noise pollution, congestion and road conditions.
The Copenhagen Wheel differs from other electric bikes in that all components are elegantly packaged into one hub. There is no external wiring or bulky battery packs, making it retrofittable into any bike. Inside the hub, we have arranged a motor, 3-speed internal hub gear, batteries, a torque sensor, GPRS and a sensor kit that monitors CO, NOx, noise (db), relative humidity and temperature. In the future, you will be able to spec out your wheel according to your riding habits and needs.
