Apple was up to some cool stuff in the 80s. We’ve seen evidence of it before with Apple’s 1986 clothing line and with this Apple gift catalog from 1983. The logo made it on a range of products including race cars, kites and carpets.

Twitter GUI Photoshop PSD Template

September 24th, 2012

Twitter just rolled out a new profile design that allows you to add your own header banner. However, it’s hard to tell what looks best without fidgeting with it. To make it easier on you, I’ve updated my Twitter PSD Photoshop template to the new design.

The profile images in the template utilize smart objects to make it easier to update all of the images in the template at once. The name/username’s in the tweets also utilize smart objects. Double-click to edit, then edit the contents and it will update all of the smart objects synced with it.

This template was built closely to Twitter’s current layout as of September 20th, 2012. Download the template below. Please share the PSD with others.

You should Follow @ShelbyWhite on Twitter. Enjoy!

August 31st, 2012





David Mach is a master sculptor. We’ve seen his work before with his matchstick sculptures, which were amazing. David created two new sculptures: one of a cheetah and another of a tiger using thousands of wire hangers. Who knew wire hangers had so much potential.

John Lautner’s Arthur Elrod House in Palm Springs

August 27th, 2012



John Lautner is one of my favorite architects, ever. The Arthur Elrod home was designed by Lautner in 1969 and it went up for sale in 2009 for $13,890,000. It’s a five-bedroom, five and a half bath home on a 6.5 acre plot of land. The living room is 60 feet long covered by a concrete dome. The entire north end of the living room opens up to the outside. To top it all off, the home was featured in the James Bond movie, Diamonds Are Forever.

A Batman fan is spending $2 million to create a cinema in his home that looks exactly like the batcave. The 12,000 square foot cinema includes full bat suits, a bat mobile, 180 degree bat screen (film screen), gargoyles, secret tunnels, and bat computers. These 3D images are what the cinema will look like when completed in November. Amazing.

Robotic DSLR Camera Rigs at the London Olympics

July 25th, 2012



YouTube Preview Image

The Associated Press gives us an awesome behind the scenes look at the wild DSLR camera rigs that are being used at the London Olympic Games. The remote controlled rigs are being paced in locations that photographers just aren’t able to be in. Though I don’t see a price on the rigs, they aren’t cheap. If you look close you can see metal arms that reach out to the focus and zoom rings to control remotely.
