As you can probably tell from this slideshow, DESIGN East was jam-packed with cool stuff -- there's just no better way to say it. If you didn't make it this year, be sure to put it on your calendar for next year -- who doesn't love Boston in the early fall? Or, get ready for DESIGN West, in San Jose, Calif., which is always bigger, and, some might say, even better!
Thanks Beth! This was a project by a TI engineer for our Gadget Freak DIY event at the show. It's a silly gadget he made using a BeagleBoard that will put a mustache on anyone - men, women, animals, even babies! Oh, and Senior VP of Content Karen Field. She was a really good sport!
Your slide show was terrible! It really made me regret not going. I didn't need a guilt trip. It's all your fault!
But seriously, I wish your slide show was more complete. I really enjoyed seeing the few things you put there. I really liked the presentations and displays. Impressive! Plus the freebies are always fun.
Hi warren! I'm sorry - I don't know the answer to the IBM question. I'm glad you enjoyed the slideshow, though. Next time, I'll be sure to expand it to fit more stuff in for the readers who couldn't attend. Hope to see you in Boston next year!!
I, too, regretted not making it to Design East, Jenn, especially when I saw that TDK-Lambda was giving away keyboard brushes. Giveaways are an important part of every trade show (although I do admit that traveling from Chicago to Boston to get a free keyboard brush seems extreme).
Wow! I was impressed witht the slide show. I regret not being able to finagle my way in! I was hoping someone could tell me the IBM "Can you name the ten points of product development?" that was on the sign of the IBM booth? I Googled it, but it didn't come back with an answer.

Two issues have been the bane of the plastics industry for as long as one can remember: The ban on plastic grocery bags and whether the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in plastics such as polycarbonate and PVC is harmful to humans.
One expects to see outlandish apparel at major global fashion events, but New York Fashion Week may have outdone itself, and set a new bar for Paris and Milan, when it put an Ebola jumpsuit in the spotlight.
