Solo e Sola is an espresso cup that holds a single cigarette.
The Solo e Sola cup was inspired out of need, and could be used to build an entire business model... imagine a food truck offering single espresso shots with single cigarettes. Currently illegal, probably unhealthy, yet understandably desirable, Solo e Sola is a serving piece for a food truck, a cafe or a restaurant, or individuals.
A product of Tomorrow Lab’s CoBuilt process [ http://tomorrow-lab.com/cobuilt ], this cup was developed for a low cost using rapid fabrication processes including an inhouse MakerBot and Shapeways.com.
This vase is part of series of vases, each generated using a different computational technique: beginning with single dimensional iteration, proceeding through multi-dimensional iteration and then into recursion. The vases are intended to enhance the algorithmic beauty of the flowers they contain. This was as much an editorial process, as a generative one: identifying the characteristics that best represent the algorithm, while still maintaining the form and function of a flower vase. The algorithms each respond to an initial arrangement of flowers and allow for adjustments to the underlying functions, producing almost limitless variation within each vase type. Using rapid-manufacturing processes, a unique user-defined vase could be generated on demand and manufactured within hours.
The 3D Vase started with the same bouquet and point distribution as the 2D Vase, but added an additional set of points, contained with a three-dimensional array that were offset from the original points. These offset points were used to create surfaces, that were then thickened to create solids. Using the same Sine and Exponential functions as the 2D Vase, the density and offset amount would change with the height.
This is a full miniature set of the original four Perk-a-Cola Machines from Nazi Zombies. Each one is scaled to the correct size and each is about the size of a business card (to give you an idea of the scale).
All are printed in Full Color Sandstone. Each model is hollow with an opening on the bottom to reduce cost. The interior surfaces are reinforced to make them stronger. The signs on top are fragile so please handle with care.
Turn the odds in your favor with all four of the original Perk-a-colas. They are a great addition to any fan's collection.
Ordering this set is the best option if you want all four perk machines since it will save you near $10.00 USD compared to ordering the machines separately.
