Technically Entertaining: Friday Links and Round-Up

by Emily Twaddell

Maybe it was the full moon this week, but we seemed to be in a wickedly playful mood.


Engineer Adam Pere contributed this creepy craft for engineers who love to have fun on Halloween.


Along the same lines, designer Sein Woo shared this avian documentary: A Murder of Crows. After watching this, you will look at crows in a totally different way!


Creative Chief Juhan Sonin found something that captures the Invo vibe perfectly: taking the lowest-tech toy (besides dirt) and making it, well, current-tech with the Paper Airplane Machine Gun.


Visiting Ben Listwon came bearing gifts with a complete set of A Book Apart titles on web design to add the the Invo Library. Thanks, Ben!
