This Couple Who First Met In Preschool 20 Years Ago Just Got Married, And The Internet Just Can’t Handle It

in Design Nerd by

Preschool crushes are seriously the cutest, but, unfortunately, they usually end after preschool. But not for this couple.


Show Full Text

Laura Scheel and Matt Grodsky met when they were kiddos in preschool. In fact, one of Matt’s earliest childhood memories dates way back to preschool with Laura. “One of my very first memories is of being 3 years old and standing up in front of my pre-school class, declaring that I would marry her someday,” Matt wrote. But after preschool, the love birds lost touch up until freshman year in high school when they reconnected through a mutual friend. Laura and Matt totally hit it off, and within two weeks they were boyfriend and girlfriend. Now, as years have passed since their preschool love, Matt finally decided to “stay true to [his] preschool pledge”, and the pair got married in December 2016. It’s like a real-life fairytale romance!

“Fortunately, I was the kid who managed to do it and I assume it got her attention”

And it looks like he still has her attention now

In May 2015, Matt decided to pop the question at the place it all began…their preschool classroom

“The whole car ride to the preschool she kept asking me why I seemed anxious,” Matt said

“I kept checking my pocket when she wasn’t looking to make sure the ring was still there”

“I dropped down on one knee while my brother came in with the phone, snapping photos,” Matt said

Nikon Awards A Badly Photoshopped Photo, The Internet Responds

in Design Nerd by

Mistakes happen even to the best of us – but when your name is Nikon and you have 10 million Facebook fans – you know you’re in trouble. It all started when Nikon announced that they had decided to give a prize to Chay Yu Wei  for managing to “catch an airplane in mid-air.” The problem was that there was no plane in the original shot to begin with.

The photo was so badly edited that you could see it on any larger screen (well, at least we saw it). Not to mention that Nikon should have checked it with “curves” or “levels” in Photoshop. When it seemed that the things couldn’t get worse, someone posted the answer from the photographer himself. To a question “How long did you wait for that plane?” he replied: “Not too long! I was lucky! Thank you so much!”

The Internet didn’t take long to respond…

After a while Nikon responded and admitted their mistake

“At Nikon, we believe that innovation and imagination are at the heart of every image. While innovation is driven by the technological advances in our devices and cameras, we see imagination as the ability to see greatness and use each and every tool at your disposal to make them real.

NikonCaptures is a casual photography contest that focuses not on the devices or props you use, but on the imagination and creativity that each photographer exudes while capturing and sharing their images. We have taken in every feedback received, and we sincerely apologise for the oversight on our part. We are now in the process of carefully revisiting the contest’s rules and regulations, for the benefit of all our current NikonCaptures members. We will update everyone of the contest rules once we have revisited all of them.

At the same time, we welcome the funny and witty entries being shared in response to our recently awarded image. It’s with joy that we acknowledge that the global photography and image community is alive and thriving. We thank you for the numerous spontaneous contributions and encourage everyone to keep the imagination alive.”

This 17-Year-Old Cat Is The Laziest Internet Star In Japan

in Design Nerd by

At 17, it’s safe to say that Ura, a pretty white Scottish Fold cat in Japan, has lived a long and plentiful life. However, she hasn’t lost her spunk just yet – this Internet star still has a devoted 24,000-strong fan base on her Twitter and blog, and dresses up in cute costumes like bowties and bunny ears.

Ura-chan is suffering from renal failure, so most of her photos are rather relaxed – just like her. Her owner describes her as unfussy, chill and slow.

SAM and Map create Internet of Things toolkit for building connected products

in Design Nerd by

Barber and Osgerby‘s creative consultancy Map and technology company SAM have designed a kit of “building blocks” aimed at simplifying the creation of internet-connected products (+ slideshow).

SAM‘s Internet of Things toolkit is made up of a series of bluetooth-enabled modules that connect via an app or a cloud storage system.

Internet of Things by SAM and Map
A selection of SAM sensor and actor “building blocks” and the SAM software

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term used to describe a group of electronic objects that can exchange data with each other and their users via the internet. Examples include connected home products like thermostats or a smart lock that uses a phone app instead of keys.

The kit produced by SAM is designed to enable those without previous coding experience to create products and systems that work in this way.

Internet of Things by SAM and Map
The SAM Internet of Things toolkits

“There was no really easy way to create a product, an app, or a piece of art using electronics and coding,” SAM CEO Joachim Horn told Dezeen.

“I thought this was crazy as it basically meant cutting off the majority of the designers who haven’t had the luxury to have a technical education.”

Internet of Things by SAM and Map
Some SAM “building blocks” and the SAM software

SAM and Map worked together to design both the physical modules, which they refer to as “building blocks”, and the digital software that come as part of the kit.



The modules are divided into sensors and actors. The sensors are responsible for input – buttons, pressure sensors, thermometers, etc. – and the actors provide outputs such as lights, buzzers and motors.

Internet of Things by SAM and Map
The SAM interface

Data captured by the sensors is transferred via bluetooth to the software, which reads and interprets the information. The software then sends the resulting instructions to the actors, which perform their various tasks accordingly.

Examples of projects created with SAM’s technology include a skirt that automatically rotates at the speed of the dancer that wears it – made by pairing pressure sensors in the shoes and motors in the skirt.

Internet of Things by SAM and Map
The SAM interface

One of the SAM buttons was also used as a doorbell that prompted a camera to take pictures of visitors and post the images to the homeowner’s Twitter account.

A Bluetooth low-energy antenna and a lithium polymer battery are integrated into each block, removing the need for wires, meaning the modules can be placed wherever necessary.

Internet of Things by SAM and Map
The SAM interface

“There are no wires to get tangled in or complexities around fault finding, and it really does free up inputs and outputs to be physically separated from one another and create genuine IoT experiences,” Map designer Paul Wolfson told Dezeen.

Each block is wrapped in an elastomer band that hides the electronic components, but can be removed if the user wishes to tweak them.



The kit aims to help designers and students learn about electronics and computer science.

“[The Internet of Things] is becoming essential,” said Wolfson. “The boundaries have blurred between the world of physical and digital products, and the potential to connect one thing to another is huge. This doesn’t just mean physical objects talking to one another but talking to broader services and experiences, which might only exist digitally.”

Internet of Things by SAM and Map
Map’s elastomer band wrap around the individual SAM “building blocks”

The cardboard packaging for SAM’s different sets was also created by Map, which was set up by designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby in 2012.

The branch of the studio has been responsible for projects including a build-your-own computer kit and a collection of wall storage products for the bathroom.

Internet of Things by SAM and Map

A number of designers have been working to make programming more accessible to larger numbers of people. Examples include Technology Will Save Us, who have designed a programmable pocket-sized device to be given to 1 million UK children. Their DIY Gamer Kit was acquired by New York’s Museum of Modern Art last year, alongside an Arduino and three other DIY electronics products.

“These objects reflect the deep and central role technology and interface design now play in education, production, and our everyday lives,” said Paola Antonelli, MoMA‘s senior curator of architecture and design, of the devices. “In their own unique ways they allow audiences – artists, designers, and active maker-culture enthusiasts, pros, children, and amateurs – to engage with the processes and final products that are usually the preserve of electronic engineers.”
