HELIX: Fashion and Function without Compromising Either

Headphones are a wonderful thing. They allow us to enjoy media in a personal, respectful way, providing a gateway to anywhere you so choose. However, there is no good way to transport earbuds, even wireless ones. They all require extra space in your main backpack if they have a carrying case or they go in one of the smaller pockets and get tangled by the little tiny elves whose sole life purpose is to live in your bag and tangle your headphones. It’s just a fact of life, these are the choices you make when it comes to earbuds and headphones…until now! There is a group of brilliant engineers attempting to kickstart a brilliant solution to this universal electronic problem. It’s called the HELIX and it is the first bracelet I’ve ever seriously considered wearing. Read More

TILT Stand Has a “Rocking Chair” Like Design for Your Smartphones

Now that an average person spends over 90 mins per day on their phone, it’s vital for us to come up with a solution that will help us make the most of that time. I am an avid smartphone user and I can tell you how difficult it is to access my phone when it’s on the tabletop. It keeps sliding every time I try to type a text or search for something on the web or even when I am checking my Facebook feed. I thought a docking station would solve this problem and keep my smartphone in a position where it’s easier to use. But I was terribly wrong! It just makes the whole problem even worse. Read More

Meet Kazım Gürbüz, A 95-Year-Old Yoga Guru From Turkey

1


A 95-year-old yoga master from Turkey has said he still enjoys an active sex life and believes everyone can live to be 130. In an interview with the Daily Hurriyet, Kazım Gürbüz – who looks closer to 50 than 100 – said he has retained his youth by keeping his body flexible and eating a diet of superfoods, including olives and chestnut honey.


Gürbüz was born in the southern Turkish province of Adana in 1920. When he was 41, he broke his back and was left paralysed from the waist down, with doctors saying he would not walk again. However, he said he cured himself by allowing friends to crack his vertebra bones back into place: “I conducted 63 different experiments on myself… I was born again. Nine months [after the experiment] I began to walk. ‘Miracle!’ they said.


“However, it was not. Man uses his brain power if applied correctly and the brain can regenerate muscles and nervous system.”


He said everyone has the power to stay young and claims to be able to perform the ‘knot position’ for up to 48 hours and hold his breath for between 4-5 minutes. In terms of his sex life, he said he can have orgasms between 3-5 times every day.


“I am the same as when I was 25-30 years old. They challenged me to prove it in Europe, so I did,” Gürbüz said.


They yoga guru said he performs sun salutations before swimming, finds answers in the Quran and eats a special diet. He makes honey of many varieties and normally finishes half a jar every day.


He also recommends pinto beans, peppers, pepper sauce, herbal tea and soup: “Less beneficial is meat, [which causes] most damage. There is protein in all [pulses], you do not necessarily need to eat meat.”


Gürbüz also said people should live for others and themselves, and that life starts at 65: “We can live to be 130 years old. I have such an intention… everyone has the power. They are aware of the power that they use internal and power… [If] they take good care of their bodies. Then they will live to age like me.”

Artist Uses Maps As Canvase For Striking Ink And Pencil Drawings

EdFairburn1EloyseLesueur


In an unusual blend of cartography and illustration, UK artist Ed Fairburn practices map as his canvases for striking ink and pencil portraits.


Faces scrapped by shapes that not only draw borders, roads, and geographical features but also bear a remarkable resemblance to veins and the texture of skin.


Made up of amazingly complex details, the human forms that rise from dense lines are exceptionally realistic, even while being abstracted by the patterns of the maps.
