Inventor Scott Amron is at it again, this time turning tap water into a fountain for rinsing after brushing.
No disposable cups to buy or throw away. No glass to wash or take up counter space. No changing hands to cup water. And, no more putting your head in the sink. Just aim the fountain where you want the water to be.
You can pre-order for a presage price of $22 here.
This brilliant experiment was created by Parsons School of Design student Lina Fenequito.
The Swap-O-Matic vending machine is designed for user to give, take, or swap anything that fits inside the compartments. People have traded items like original art, poems, clothing, metro cards, etc
The Swap-O-Matic recognizes that there is a thrill in getting things. The vending machine satisfies our desires for instant gratification, but it co-ops it and re-appropriates it to something that is a more sustainable method of acquisition, which is through swapping and trading,” said Fenequito…
To use the machine, one simply has to enter their e-mail address on the screen and choose whether they would like to donate, receive, or swap an item. Since none of the items in the machine is assigned a value, all item transactions work on a credit system. As a new user, you’re given three credits to begin with. A credit is earned each time you donate an item and it costs one credit to receive something. Swapping an item in the machine for something that you’ve brought doesn’t require any credits.
Feels totally in the zeitgeist right now and sparks some very powerful and interesting conversation about sharing and consumerism. Via BB

Punta Mita lies just 28 miles north of Puerto Vallarta Airport– and it’s down as the crown jewel of Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit. A couple nights here and you’ll see why.
Everyday you can choose to hang by the beach, or by the adult pool– as we did often pictured here. That is, if you don’t get engaged in dozens of activities from tennis to snorkeling to scuba diving right off the beach.
Despite such a large resort, it always seemed to feel empty. There was always space, it was rarely loud or crowded. That meant service was always perfect and timely.
A highlight of the trip was of course the fresh seafood in all the dishes the chefs prepared. Everyday you could order something on the menu as ‘catch of the day’, and actually walk down to the beach at 11am and see what the catch was! Lots of fresh tuna, red snapper, and much more.
Right there on the beach you reserve a piece for lunch or dinner– grilled, in fish tacos, or any other way you like it. So incredible.
Great shot of a party being setup on the beach!

Look at that fish! The kids loved it.
It doesn’t get any fresher than this. Tuna, right out of the ocean a few minutes ago.
As the sun set, it was time for the grand opening of the Golf and Gourmet Classic!
Fireworks, and tastings from all the chefs involved. Highly recommend making a trip down there– and I can’t wait to see what they pull off for the event again next year!
