“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.

How Do You Fix The iPad Speaker? With A Mickey Mouse Ear | Co.Design: business + innovation + design

Evan Clabots, from Nonlinear Studio, has developed a Kickstarter-backed solution called the Amplifiear. It’s a clip-on accessory that reflects audio–especially the higher frequencies–back at the user. The amplifier requires no power to use; it’s just plastic, fitted with a “tension clip” (read: an etching within the plastic) that allows it to fit on iPad 2s or the new iPad (3rd generation).
