  • "Is it offensive to bibliophiles? Perhaps. But consider what is actually being sold here: to be blunt these are pulp books. The cost of hardcover printing is so low in the modern world that many hardcover books end up in the bargain bin. This is ingenious because this entity is selling you the service of handling thousands of books and sorting them. I could compare this to the price you will get paid for selling your bulk Magic the Gathering cards. There are two prices, the price paid if they are all delivered in a box, oriented and facing the same way, versus the price you will receive for cards all facing and oriented in random directions, stacked or not. This is essentially recycling. The fact that people who don't really want to read their library are using books as decoration: at least they have some books at all. I love reading and I still make a point to look at "decorative books". It's still a book...."

  • "This hits the uncanny valley for me. It's too real. It's too escapist and nostalgic. It's too easy to imagine falling into a VR hole with this. "

  • "How it works: the chimney effect. It is a giant chimney with a bunch of plants and filters built in a natural heat gradient created by heating the gas below so it will rise on its own. Not much more than that and this is some amazing appropriate technology for what could be a ridiculous waste of energy like some carbon capture systems."

  • "Yes this is important but...no thanks for singling out well meaning professionals for their gender or race identity. Sort of a failure of egalitarianism in title form. Yes I am white, male, and a discursive designer. And yes this is about me, because this is a shared planet we all live on and their are other identities too..."

  • "I know furniture isn't as valued in our society, but I have a feeling the low-energy future will bring people back to valuing items made slowly and by hand relative to the mass production lines of Chinese Ikea and the like. The individual will become important again as the appeal of mass production fades, driven by energy scarcity."

  • "I LOVE this project. My favorite thing about 3d printing is the hacking of standard components into new devices. I think this methodology of stripping the old parts of a great device and remixing them is the standard practice of the new generation of 3d printing enabled designers. Great work and clean aesthetics."
