My name is Isabel, I'm 19 and this is my account of all the things I love in life.

"I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art--write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can." - Neil Gaiman

Hand-Tech, Concept for a new kind of device

A technological device wearable like a glove, that uses gestures as interface.
The fabric is woven with special sensors and mini projectors that read the hand’s movements and translate them into practical functions.
Using a sequence of gestures it is possible to take pictures, make videos and display information.
The glove can also translate the sign language used by deaf people (manual communication) into sound pattern (spoken language).
Hand-tech expands the communicative power of the sign language converting an iconic gesture into a concrete action.

For years I’ve imagined how convenient it would be simply to take a high-resolution photograph with your eyes. Now, we have Google Glasses, telescopic contact lenses, and with more concepts like the above on the way, imagination is indeed becoming applicable in reality day by day. Way to go, science.

Tea leaves collected from Boston harbor the morning after the Boston Tea Party. 
Label reads:
“Tea that was gathered up on the Shore of Dorchester Neck on the morning after the destruction of the three Cargos at Boston December 17, 1773.”

i’m so pleased that this means someone during the event was like “yeah this is probably gonna be historically interesting” and just ran out there with, like, what, a net? some cloth? fishing around in the fucking bay to collect tea to put in a bottle? you go, buddy

Good job, anonymous 18th century person.  Your commitment to historic preservation pleases me.
