Design by Mexican 3D artist Julian Carlos Ramos the Pyramid House ($INFO) is a beautiful take on the world famous Ancient Egyptian pyramids. The triangular glass structure is breath-taking to behold and shines with a glorious light that harks back to the Egyptian sun itself. While it’s not quite the “traditional” pyramid this magnificent work of art is something you really have to take in with your own eyes to appreciate.
The making of Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon's Classified Moto Motorcycle ($NFS): If you're a fan of The Walking Dead, then you know in the latest episode the gang is holed up in their latest safe haven, Alexandria, and Daryl just got a new bike.Now if you're into the custom bike scene and watched the show, the first thing you would have noticed were the gold forks on the bike and you might have thought they looked real familiar.Well it just so happens that Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), has a Classified in the garage and when the show asked him if he had any ideas about his new bike he went straight to John Rylan of Classified Moto. And the rest is historyNorman painted of picture of Daryl's character and where they were in the story, the Executive Producer and Prop Master filled in the rest and John took over from there.They needed to build two bikes and started with a pair of 750cc Hondas from the '90s. If you watch the show you know they needed to make the bikes look like they were put together from different lots and different models.They gave them sportbike front ends, and painted the engine components to look like they were made from a hodge podge of components.Additional updates included knobby dirt-bike tires, upgraded rear suspension, and a pair of $1000 Progressive shocks.By getting rid of unnecessary components, John and the team were able to fill the void they left with an ancient military canvas bag that Daryl uses in the show.John R. says,"The process was a designer’s dream — an unbelievable assignment and a client with a shared aesthetic sense. Two thumbs up."

We're reaching the point in history where if you can dream it you can make it. The Appseed ($8+) is just another step in that evolution. Simply put, the program turns sketches of apps into working prototypes. It works by capturing the sketched design, and identifying enclosed areas. Those areas can then be assigned a UI property such as buttons, maps, text inputs, etc. This would be great for developers who need to show clients quick mockups, for clients who want to take their app to developers for quotes, or anyone who just wants to mockup that next great idea.
A guy named Till Konneker moved into a small apartment studio without any storage and the rest is just another great example of really good design. Till created The Living Cube ($3200+). The cube was made to store his record collection, TV, Clothes and Shoes. On the top was a bed and inside additional storage. What a great idea. Just think how much furniture you can get rid of if you had one of these in your room. Till is now offering these units for sale. He is offering a Mini Unit, an Urban Unit and a Living Wall that is priced based on the elements you want. All of the Cubes are fully customizable and available in several finishes.
