More Like “The Royal College of Totally Awesome”


Maybe longing for a trip to the isle this summer, here’s another UK link. Most years, there’s lots of talk about the Royal College of Art‘s grad, postgrad, and designer shows. This year is no different. If you cruise around the site we visit, and it’s likely you do, you’ve seen a few mentions pop up here and there. We’d seen most, but hadn’t seen this great wrap-up of their Summer Show over at, not only talking over the event some, but also highlighting a few of the favorite student pieces they’d seen. It’s great to see what them smarty designery minds are cooking up. Our favorite was Availabot, which lays on it’s back, completely motionless, until one of your IM contacts becomes available. Then it pops up and comes to life, likely giving your cat a heart attack.
