Helveticards

A friend of mine ran across these cards a while back. They’re cards designed from the simplistic, yet elegant, Helvetica font. Swiss design, none the less. They’ll cost you a little less than double a deck of Smoke and Mirrors but they sure are good looking. I wish there were more pictures up, I’d like to see the box, jokers, or ace. The back design would be nice too. Someone should purchase a deck and bring it to Magic-Con this year.

On a side note, there is also an independent documentary about Helvetica. Looks interesting.

Projected Living Room

I recently came across this video and found it quite interesting. There’s a set of living room furniture, all white. Then two projectors are set up to project over this plain furniture. This creates a ” real-life skinning effect”, as the page says.




The room changes themes, colors, walls, and floors in a matter of seconds. Depending on how difficult or time consuming this actually is to set up, I wonder if it could be used for backdrops or scenery for projects pertaining to magic. Or what other possibilities lie within projecting videos onto the surfaces… very good food for thought.
