Andy Warhol x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Collection Preview

In commemoration of Andy Warhol's famed artwork, Converse will be releasing the Chuck Taylor All Star Andy Warhol collection. The limited-edition series of sneakers will feature a number of Warhol's work -- such as the iconic Campbell's Soup Cans -- printed across the Chuck Taylor All Star 1970s silhouette. In the '80s, Warhol's artistic foray saw him silkscreen his own pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars. The incorporation of sneakers has been prevalent throughout his career, appearing across his early blotted-ink commercial illustrations. Hence, this collection is all the more sentimental.

Senic’s Flow Reimagines The Mouse For the Creative Industry

Those who make a living using software like Photoshop or Illustrator know just how critical having the right input device is. For tech startup Senic, traditional controllers such as the mouse or tablet simply weren't cutting it. So they created Flow, a revolutionary control system that gives users new levels of control and dexterity. Senic’s goal was to build a device that lets you function your computer like an instrument, “blindy, unconsciously and naturally,” describes co-founder Tobias Eichenwald. Users can control Flow in four different ways: by waving their hands over the infrared sensor, using the touch-sensitive pad on top, twisting the physical slider built into the sides for precise movements, or tapping Flow as a button. The organic combination of motion control and physical touch gives Flow a natural feel, one that steers clear of gimmicks and focuses on genuine usability. Designed to work with Adobe Creative Suite programs and social apps like Spotify, Flow gives creative professionals the option to discover a more natural way to work. Head to indiegogo for more information on Flow, available from its online store at $100 USD.
