There's Not A Single Drop Of Ink On This Subtle Embossed Calendar

When your to-do list is a mile-long and your schedule is booked solid, you’ve got enough on your mind to deal with — the last thing you need is a calendar covered in kittens to distract you. So South Korea’s O-Check Design Graphics created this incredibly clean monthly planner that doesn’t even have any calendar lines printed on it. Instead, they’re all embossed so they’re as subtle as possible.


Believe It Or Not, This Paper Scarf Will Actually Help Keep You Warm

You’ve always got a place to jot down ideas with a smartphone in hand, but can your Nexus 6 keep you warm on a cold morning? Not likely, and definitely not like this Paper Scarf from Little Factory can, while giving you 170cm of white space to scribble down notes and doodles.


This Mid-Century Legend Made Sculptural Magic Out Of Plain Paper

There’s a whole world of potential in a blank sheet of paper, but few folks can turn something flimsy and flat into 3D magic like Irving Harper. The creative legend — now 98 years-old! — did industrial and graphic design for Herman Miller during its dynamic mid-century era, but his legacy also includes an incredible personal collection of paper sculptures.


Watch Recycled Paper Go From Rubbish To Brand-New Boxes

New York City fills recycle bins with tons and tons of discarded paper. That cast-off fibre lives to serve another day, thanks to the wonders of recycling. NYC Sanitation’s director of photography Michael Anton followed that voyage from start to finish, creating this beautiful timelapse of the process.


The Ultra-Laborious Way The FBI Matched Fingerprints To Paper Files

The FBI just switched over to Next-Generation Identification, a new digital system for keeping track of the 83 million fingerprint cards the bureau maintains.

iOS 8 Will Make Drawing On Your Devices Way More Intuitive

Perfecting your artistic technique using a stylus is about to get a whole lot more refined. With the introduction of iOS 8, your screen will be sensitive to the relative width of whatever’s running across its surface.

A Speaker That Camouflages Itself As A Paper Palm

Like it or not, most sound systems don’t exactly blend into your home’s decor. You can try buying a pair of speakers in a matching tint, or mount it near the ceiling so it’s less obvious, but they rarely are. Phonon’s Kamone could be your safest bet. It looks like a houseplant, but it actually produces sound — and not just the rustling of leaves.


Why Is Toilet Paper Always White?

Toilet paper is an odd thing. Despite the fact that we often rub it against one of the most sensitive parts of our bodies on a daily basis, very little thought is ever given to where it came from or how it’s made. (On that note, it might surprise you to learn that toilet paper wasn’t commonly used in the United States until the early 20th century and even later in many countries.)
