Todayâ''s Theme: Cross-pollination and inspiration

Some interesting mash-ups this week:

Tree-inspired computer. The design won the Dyson award.

Chair-inspired sound (or sound-inspired chair, Iâ''m not sure). â''Translating sound into furniture and furniture into sound.â''

Space-inspired fashion show. Looks like it's really warm in space. Sure. Boingboing has video.

A.I.-inspired wardrobe. This fully intelligent wardrobe application would probably advise against wearing the space fashion in space.
