  • "Looks like they watched the "light it up" music video too...  2:20 mark inspiration?https://youtu.be/r2LpOUwca94?t=142"

  • "Another misleading "clickbait" title.  Making colored caps wasn't the "wrong" decision, it made sense at the time and solved a problem based on the info they had.  I can promise we'll replace milk jugs with something better than plastic eventually and we shouldn't look back and say "what a stupid idea it was to use plastic for this packaging...."  Hindsight is 20/20.Also if that's true why doesn't Coke make clear caps and save us billions of tiny red bottle caps going to landfillls?"

  • "looks pretty uncomfortable in either use case.  Looks like sitting on a rolled up gym mat. "

  • "I'd rather just have a comfortable couch and useful rug instead of something that does neither very well."

  • "I like how they've used more plastic to counter the impact of plastic pollution while actually doing nothing to help the planet..... greenwashing at it's finest.  "

  • "I would also imagine that a wall of shiny metal sandwiched between two pieces of glass would become very hot in direct sunlight. Unless you have a third layer of glass on the inside I would think the glass itself would become pretty hot to the touch.  It may block sunlight but it might also heat up like an easy-bake oven in arizona summer heat. "

  • "Well.....-It probably takes more time to produce than standard window so slower production = more cost-It requires an entire sheet of laser-cut, dual-material metal (I'm sure that's super easy to make)-Seems to be thicker than a standard window.-Good luck repairing one. In the promo video you can see like 3-4 of the shades don't work.  Can you imagine the cost to fix that thing? Take apart the whole wall and replace tiny tree-ornament sized piece of specialized metal? Cost of ownership would be brutal. -Even when it's "fully shaded" it's not fully shaded....Does not work for privacy as shown.-End-of-life recycling of the window is much harder now that you have glass and metal combined into one product.... Also I bet that dual-material metal is a pain to recycle. No comment there. So yeah, I see a few drawbacks.....but it looks cool."

  • "I would like to see it used with something other than a tiny hot-plate placed on a large table.  This would not fit on my gas stove. "

  • "haha, oh but it's not!!"
    on: Disco Compacto 3d printed chair
  • "this chair is ridiculous..... definitely not reducing waste or assembly time or hundreds of tiny plastic parts.....moving backwards here."

  • "Doesn't the energy required to spiral out multiple 5ft solar panels twice a day kind of negate the energy savings? I'd bet that motor takes a fair amount of energy just to open and close."
