The scarf that’s driving Celebs crazy to go invisible in public.

The Ishu Scarf, invented by a 28-year-old guy, Saif Siddiqui, from New Delhi, is gaining popularity amongst the cynosures.

Celebrities around the world are bothered about their privacy and here’s a solution from this New Delhi student, who now runs his booming business due to his innovative product and creative talent. The name “ISHU” stands for privacy and silence, and is a play on the words “issue” and “shh”.

Everyone from Hollywood actors to football superstars are being spotted the Ishu scarf in public.

Siddiqui told Buzzfeed the scarf’s purpose was to give people their privacy.

“The main intention is to make people aware of how important privacy actually is,” he said. “Everyone has a ‘brand’ online, and with the ISHU Scarf, people are back in control of their privacy.”

Presenting… the paparazzi-proof ISHU Scarf!

The Ishu scarf made from a special fabric – consisting of thousands of nano-spherical crystals reflects light back into the camera and hence makes the wearer invisible to the flash photography.

The ISHU was officially  launched  at  Soho  House Toronto in October 2015. The  force behind the creation of this #InvisibilityCloak  was adamant that a stylish solution be available to that select group of people who  want  to  control  unwanted  pictures  of them being taken with mobile devices, which inevitably end up plastered across social media.

It took Saif 6 years to research and present his idea into a demanding product. We often see the success but fail to see the hard work, dedication and belief in one’s idea and his continuous efforts to make his idea successful. Here’s the making of “The ISHU Scarf”:

The  concept  of  The ISHU dates back to 2009 when Dutch-born Saif Siddiqui took  a  picture  of  friends  standing in front of a bike in Amsterdam. He noticed  that  the  bike’s  reflector  manipulated  the flash of his mobile camera in a way that obscured the faces of his friends in the picture. He immediately realized that if developed into the right product, this feature would be an ideal solution for his friends and now available to the public who want to keep their private moments in public private. Saif put together a team of experts
who dug into the science of light and reflection, and how to blend technology with fashion. 6 Years later The ISHU is released to instant acclaim. Privacy is back.

The “anti-paparazzi” cloaking device also works with video cameras.

Siddiqui is launching ISHU phone cases in July, and hopes to get the product integrated in museums and private jets soon.

He aims to bring the concept to India in a few months, and is hopeful that it will catch the eye in Bollywood as strongly as it has in the rest of the world.

World’s first 3D printed building opens in Dubai

The world’s first functional 3D-printed office building, a single storey building spread across 2,690 square foot, opened in Dubai in mid of May, 2016.

Located near the Dubai International Financial Center, the building was completed at a cost of about $140,000 in just 17 days and officials say they saved more than 70% on labor costs.

Dubai officials say their goal is towards technological development. It’s already a man-made wonder you will know once you visit Dubai.

This arc-shaped office building used a 20-foot tall 3D printer and a special mixture of cement to be built. Whole of the office structure with furniture was printed in 17 days and assembled in just 2 days.

Dubai officials say, “The future is based on 3D printing, whether we are talking about printing buildings or printing cloths or printing equipments or printing food or even printing some human body parts.”

The project is part of Dubai’s long term strategy to ensure that 25% of the city will be 3D printed by 2030.

Diana Beltran Herrera paper aviary comprises hundreds of sculptural birds, flowers, plants and insects.

Diana Beltran Herrera, is a Colombian designer and artist who has been working over the past years with paper as the primary medium in the production of her work.

Herrera has exhibited in her country as well as participating in solo and group shows in Europe, Asia and USA. Her recent commissions includes a piece for the Festival of ideas (program developed by Bristol City Council), and her first solo show in Asia (Jakarta, Indonesia) supported by the Embassy of Colombia in Indonesia and Cancilleria de Colombia en el Exterior.

Artistic work with paper is often meticulous and exact, requiring a healthy dose of patience, a knowledge of materials, and a steady hand. Herrera’s handiwork has seen the making of more than 100 construction paper and cardboard birds, fish, flower, plants and insects. Her colorful collection of birds is sculpted with a precise hyper-realism that matches the personalities and peculiarities of species from the great Hornbill to the European goldfinch.

The birds begin with a structural framework, also made from paper. Interwoven cardboard sheets form a sturdy foundation for the layers Herrera then applies. Each exterior sheet is carefully cut in tiny, oblong shapes that resemble individually plucked feathers. a fringe-like texture sliced into each edge mimics the wispy texture of actual plumage. The bird takes shape as Herrera meticulously attaches each colored quill, finally forming both large and small scale species that are nearly identical to their living, physical counterpart.

Nature Meets Urban Decay In Patrick Bergsma Magical,Gravity-Defying Landscape Sculpturs

Magical,Gravity-Defying Landscape Sculptures by Dutch Artist Patrick Bergsma.  His newer works demonstrate his endless creativity in sculpting floating, post-apocalyptic homes.

Appearing to defy gravity, old ramshackle buildings painted in rustic shades meld with rock formations and elaborate root systems. Bonsai trees sprout from the top, creating darkly beautiful habitats for tiny, marooned people; a helicopter lands perilously atop one, and on another, a girl kneels pensively amongst the roots of a dead tree.

New “Inception” Dining Table Designed with Gravity-Defying and Curving Cityscape

New “Inception” Dining Table by Stelios Mousarris

The innovative piece of furniture, inspired by the 2010 film Inception, seemed to bend reality with its fantastical form—it folded a wooden cityscape onto itself, using the buildings’ underside as a smooth tabletop.

Tiny skyscrapers, churches, and other buildings are fixed around an s-shaped curve, their roofs greeting one another along this path. To make this imaginative furniture a reality, Mousarris utilized 3D printing with wood and steel, as well as hand painted coloring techniques.

Measuring 250 centimeters (98 inches) long, 76 centimeters (30 inches) high, and 70 centimeters (27 inches) wide, this large table is perfect for entertaining. When not in use, it serves as a stunning statement piece in one’s dining room.
