This is how sex robots would look inside one day (NSFW)

I initially thought this was a photo of a real art installation reflecting on the the objectification of women. It is not. It's a computer generated cutaway of a futuristic sex robot made by French 3D artist Cesar Vonc.

An Artist Perfectly Trolls Designers With a Comic Sans Typewriter

The easiest way to troll a pixel-pushing friend is to ensure you exclusively use Comic Sans for every email, message, and homemade birthday card you send them.

Designers Explain Why Apple's New OS X Typeface Is a Strange Choice

It was one of the more subtle changes showcased during yesterday's WWDC keynote: Apple finally ditched its OS typeface Lucida Grande to use Helvetica Neue across the board. Now, at least the OS and iOS systems match. But is Helvetica—which is basically unreadable at small sizes—really a better choice? »6/03/14 2:40pm6/03/14 2:40pm

The very first E.T. designs would have scarred every kid's brain forever

I never liked E.T. I must be the only kid in the planet who hated that freaky thing when it came out. But these initial designs by the amazing Rick Baker—the true ancestors of the iconic marooned alien—would have scarred my brain forever. He recently published them in his Twitter account. »5/28/14 10:40pm5/28/14 10:40pm

John Berkey's space art makes me nostalgic for a future that never was

John Berkey is one of the classic painters of the golden era of science fiction. He did some of the original Star Wars posters, but this is for me his best work: Gigantic deep space exploration ships, beautiful white galactic liners, and huge space posts orbiting Earth and other planets—all of them mixing elegant… »5/14/14 10:03pm5/14/14 10:03pm
