This Influencer-Inspired End Table Doubles as a Lightbox for Photography

This quirky concept creation may be the perfect piece of furniture for the Instagram influencer or Etsy seller in your life. It’s called the Photo Table, and it’s a half-end table half-lightbox that was “designed for public influencers.” The Photo Table—which just took home a Red Dot Design Award in the Furniture category—was designed by South Korean company Zinus Inc., and the concept is pretty self explanatory: it’s a lightbox that was designed to “blend in beautifully with any living space, while serving as a tool to make pictures more.” Photo Table is furniture designed for public influencers, allowing their everyday moments to be captured and presented in a unique way. 4k Wifi Sport Camera Designed to function as a photo box, several features are important. The LED light on top illuminates the object. The walls of the frame are composed of semi-transparent PET to capture various angles. Additionally, the curved white background facilitates hiding of outlines, allowing the object to stand out. The background itself is also interchangeable. In our humble opinion, it looks like a standard light box… with legs. But you have to give the designers points for originality. It seem...

Botswana News: Opposition Report Alleges Vote Rigging in BDP Win

An investigation into Botswana’s elections, commissioned by the main opposition group, alleges widespread rigging and the involvement of the country’s secret service. A report on the investigation, carried out by South Africa’s Forensics For Justice, includes signed statements alleging that thousands of voters were allowed to cast ballots twice in different constituencies and that election officials and voters were bribed. Forensics for Justice is headed by South Africa-based investigator, Paul O’Sullivan. The results of the probe will form part of a challenge by the opposition Umbrella for Democratic Change to results in 16 of the 38 constituencies won by President Mokgweetsi Masisi’s Botswana Democratic Party in the Oct. 23 vote. A smaller opposition party linked to former president Ian Khama, who fell out with the ruling party and quit, is challenging results in three other constituencies. The BDP’s victory extended the party’s 53-year grip on power and was a rebound in the popular vote from its worst-ever electoral performance in 2014. The government has said that all Botswana citizens have the right to challenge election results legally. “Boko and his associates have placed...

In the spring of this year, I started a weekly tips newsletter, Gareth’s Tips, Tools, and

In the spring of this year, I started a weekly tips newsletter, Gareth’s Tips, Tools, and Shop Tales. I had released a book of tips in 2018, called Tips and Tales from the Workshop, and couldn’t shake the habit of tips-collecting. So, I decided to launch a newsletter to share what I was rounding up each week. The newsletter has been a big success and I am thrilled with the response I’ve gotten. I decided it would be fun to go through the last seven months content and share ten of my favorite tips with Boing Boing readers. Here they are, in no particular order. Details Layer Scott of Essential Craftsman shared this pearl of wisdom on an episode about using construction string: “Details layer. The more accurate you can get in your details, even with something as mundane as how you tie your knot – it all accumulates to acceptable accuracy.” This is a maker’s truth. I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately because I am the king of cutting corners, lazy work habits, and fudging the details. So, I know exactly what he means. I think understanding and applying this concept is the difference between a master craftsperson and an amateur. As I work, I don’t put tools b...

Optimists seek support for ‘Blessings in a Backpack’ program

The Huron Valley Optimist Club is seeking support for their Blessings in a Backpack program, which currently serves 560 students in the Huron Valley School District each week. (Photo submitted.) In the United States, 13 million children don’t have enough to eat, and one-in-six children don’t get the food they need every day. Children are fed during the school week by federal government programs, but additional help is available through the national Blessings in a Backpack program. The nonprofit organization is currently feeding over 87,000 children in 1,092 schools. Each week, volunteers, in cooperation with school officials, distribute backpacks filled with enough nonperishable food for the weekend (six meals) for “at-risk” students. Students are participants in the subsidized free or reduced fee hot lunch program. The Blessings in a Backpack program currently feeds close to 600 students, but the number of eligible children is much higher. Oakland County has nearly 60,000 children who receive federal lunches. The Huron Valley Optimist Club and its members have come alongside to help raise funds and facilitate the program. Club President Tom Gaunt said. “It’s amazing in our sch...
