Once upon a time in a town called Merryville

"Once upon a time in a town called Merryville... comes the story of Grumpleton. This black comedy short in centred around the grumpiest man in the world, who just so happens to be living in the happiest place on Earth. It's fun, it's humorous, it's weird, and it looks amazing! It is Grumpleton."

Bath-water video game touchscreen makes a splash

"The AquaTop Display projects an image onto a water-filled bath. Users dip their hands in to control a computer game. Hand movements are detected by a Microsoft Kinect camera. The data collected is then translated into instructions that control the game. The fountains are driven by playing a low sound through waterproofed speakers at the bottom of the bath. Users can interact with the display from above or below the water's surface."

(BBC News, 28 November 2013)

[Researchers at The Koike Laboratory at The University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo have made a bath-water touchscreen that combines Microsoft Kinect camera to sense use interactions. The item was reported Laura-Jane Rich for the BBC2 Click programme.]

You can have a garden: Edible Island Planters

"Eliza Donald couldn't find a large enough planter that suited her purposes, so decided to make her own. 'It took two years, working with plant specialists, and industrial designers, also asking a lot of people questions. It's important that a design functions well but it's equally important to ask why a person would want to use it in the first place,' she says. Eliza is now director of Edible Islands – handy aesthetically lovely planters the size of a small bathtub. You can plant out your veggies and a small tree, or once all your herbs die (if you have my touch) you can pop a lid on and just sit under your tree. Ingenious.

As Eliza points out, the potential benefits are plentiful, 'Sometimes people don't have an easy access to fresh veg. The planters help with Transition Towns – educating people on how to grow their own food and prevention of depression as people swap seeds, plants and recipes, and grow plants with their grandchildren. They increase flight pathways across cities for birds, bees and butterflies as more Edible Island Planters are put on roof tops, back yards, and schools.' The planters are all made in Pakenham, Australia."
