We Moved!!

I finally buckled down and grabbed a domain! Rawmade.com will be mine in again in March of 09, but for now check all the new news and rawmade goodness over at



Tee Off in Your Home

I hope my girl doesn't mind when I tell here our guest room is going to be my golf room! After, I finally make the jump for that engadgement ring (if you know me, you know what I mean) this is coming up next. What's wrong with a little engagement gift for myself?

Golf has turned into a designer sport with the appearance of ultra luxurious golfing gears that help players hit a perfect shot. If you want to hone your golf-playing skills before displaying them in front of the skilled golfers, you can try your hands at the DeadSolid’s full-size indoor golf simulators. DeadSolid’s golf simulators don’t require a wood platform or ceiling preparation by the customer. Whether in range mode or course play, integrated Swing Analysis is displayed after every swing, which lets the players know why their shots flew as they did. Available in Standard, Gold and Platinum packages, the DeadSolid’s full-size indoor golf simulator offers you the widest flexibility in selecting the feature set best suited for your needs. The high-end Platinum package includes a 9ft x 12ft Projection Screen, ultra bright LCD Projector, Slimline Kiosk, Flatpanel Touchscreen Display, Color Inkjet Printer, and Digital Video Analysis. No word on pricing, but we don’t expect this personal trainer for golf enthusiasts to come cheap.

Stay Here? Or Move Out?

Recently my girlfriend and I have had to decide if we want to stay in our crammed one bedroom apartment or upgrade and fork out more loot. It would only be for a short time, while we're waiting for our house to be finished, but we would still like to live comfortably and at the same time stash some money away. So there was definitely a lot to think about and odds to be weighed. I recently ran across this article and it helped me put things a little bit more into perspective. Maybe, just maybe, it can do the same for someone else. Who just happens to be contemplating suicide over their cluttered cave they call a home...

"Mercedes GLK" Sema Previews

Sema is the biggest auto convention/show in the world. So some companies like to go a little above and beyond when it comes to styling, but there is a thin line between tight as fuck and rice. Here are some of those WTF styles.

The White House, Japananese Style

This Garden & Sea house is many things, but Clean & White are the most notible. Looking like something out of a cleaning commercial this japanese estate faces the sea and has deep depth, it slopes toward the sea by around 2 meters. The architects arranged the house in the center of the site. The shape of the house is like a wedge spread towards the sea. The white gravel acts as an interior space, bringing the outdoors inside.



"Pool" Table

I don't really know where I would put this exactly, but it is a pretty damn cool idea. The UK-based design firm Freshwest showed this table at Tent London, the international creative design event. Designers Freshwest successfully combine narrative and humour in their conceptual design - “Pool Table“.

“Pool Table“. “Pool Table is made from 50mm acrylic with miniature diving board, reflected and refracted light in such a way that it resembled the depth and hue of an actual swimming [pool].”

"Maxdoor" might just be your door in the future

The bazilian design group nódesign has come up with a new fron door design to go along with "maxhaus" housing concept in Brazil. This new front door concept uses
a remote control instead of a key and opens automatically by touching the doorknob. Along with with the cool feature of not having to set down your groceries to enter you apartment, the "Maxdoor" also features a digital door bell, LED lock and number lighting, sound proofing, hidden peephole and a backup battery, which allows it to work for up to a week without power. The hardest part about creating new age hi tech gadgetry is keeping the average non tech savvy client up to speed. Although this front door concept is very high tech, it has a simple interface making it approachable to all users.
