just like the real thing - how many real ones in your wallet the last time you looked? it's frightening to think how many of these are in circulation. vending & oyster machines are probably the best way to tease out the rotten ones from what i hear.
graphics - I love this label appreciation tool co-op has attached to the side of their trolleys to make the otherwise mundane 'weekly' shop more appealing. no graphic designers / copy writers work will be undervalued or go unnoticed ever again huzzar!!!
graphics - the bike police hide out of sight: i like the registration plates on the mudguards, it must make it hard to run checks on bad motorists as you can only read them when you are traveling alongside...
technology - this chicago city tour company has managed to make the traditional city walk more enjoyable by taking away 'everyone's' least favourite part...the walking?!...however i guess i can't really make fun as it's only five more years until i'm going to be riding the ultimate urban mobility vehicle..."Hey McFly, you bozo, those boards don't work on water!"
- this is a great idea for bringing a little bit of life back to the apartment block balcony [literally] - it's uncommon to use your ベランダ for much more than storage or drying clothes in kansai. this green curtain opens up your interior to feel more private and spacious as well asacting as a noise breaker.
cjb_contribution_cassie_rose//st_tropez０９年０８月 customisation - the kind of oligarch bling you would expect to find in the millionaires fair making an appearance key side. it's along way from the matte finishes that i've been seeing around london town.

cjb_contribution_ir0g0//tokyo０９年０７月 street vendors - spotted in the suburbs of tokyo, another example of japans continuing love affair with the vending machine. this time eggs, fresh from the hens housed in the adjoining building. [The purchase even includes a plastic carrier bag to carry your eggs home in].

cjb_contributor_ir0g0//tokyo think beyond 'limitations' - solving the letterbox legacy - order something on amazon.co.jp and pick it up at a lawsons convenience store of your choice. as lawson stores are open 24/7 and on every street corner it makes perfect sense. a simple collaboration between two companies that proves a huge convenience to consumers.
cjb_contribution_penny_le_cruz//Bogotá０９年０５月 sreet vendor - mobile payphones columbian style - a wide mix of people take time out to use these on-street phones, i'm not sure if they are used to send money or just because it's good to talk. cheers maz.
