Shwood Turns Good Wood Into Sunglasses

Shwood

Shwood creates beautiful wooden sunglasses that take retro styles and give them a natural twist.

Shwood Blanks

In their own words:

A simple experiment with nature. Born from the limb of a Madrone tree, a rusty pair of cabinet hinges, and lenses from the corner store, Shwood has been a curious endeavor from the beginning. An endeavor to create a product that encompasses the individuality and uniqueness that can only be found in natural surroundings. A desire to experiment with design, materials, and aesthetics in the search for something that works. Free from passing trends, the brand’s focus remains that of its roots, innovation and creation. Long live creativity.

Shwood’s in-house manufacturing process merges precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship to create a timeless art form. Every step from veneering and precision lens cutting, to shaping and finishing is conducted in our own Portland-based workshop to promise an entirely handcrafted eyewear piece. Wood manipulation is kept to a minimum in order to showcase the medium’s natural and unique splendor. All models are accompanied by 100% UVA/UVB protection Carl Zeiss lenses imported from Italy. Polarized lenses are also available.

With collections that range from $125 on up to $195 for limited edition collaborations made with rare and unique woods (including recycled skateboard decks!) there’s a style and a price for everyone, so check out Shwood to see what fits.

The Crystal Mask of Wisdom

TinyHack

The Crystal Mask of Wisdom by Rob Beschizza is an entire video game that fits in an 8×8 pixel box (that’s smaller than a favicon!).

The empire of halxe is in despair and dragons scour the land. Search for the Sword of Maguss in the forest of foiwn. Locate the Shield of Doom in the tomb of peuxbe. Collect the 16 rings of power and find the key of souls to unlock the secret of the pinnacle of pain, where the evil Tharg gathers forces for the final attack.

It’s a must play, if for no other reason than to be impressed by how much gameplay they were able to cram into such a tiny space.

Blob Jumping Has A New World Record

Blob Jump

The new Guinness World Record for the highest Blob Jump has officially been set (and set with style!) at 55 feet.

If that sounds high, it’s because it is!

Check out the video to see what I mean:

If anyone wants to break the record, I’m guessing you’re going to need a parachute soon…
