Solved with CSS! Logical Styling Based on the Number of Given Elements | CSS-Tricks
Did you know that CSS is Turing complete? Did you know that you can use it to do some pretty serious logical styling? Well you can! You don’t have to set all of your logic-based styling rules in JavaScript, or even have to use JavaScript to set classes you are styling against. In many cases, CSS can handle that itself. I’m still discovering new CSS tricks everyday, and it just makes me love it even more.

"Funk Fillets From Iceland’s Groovy Side" | MetaFilter
Breaking the Ice is an 87-minute long mixtape of rare Icelandic funk- and soul-inspired music from the 60s, 70s and 80s, made by Iceland-born, Oakland-based DJ Platurn, with the crate-digging assistance of his cousin Sveimhugi, and his father's extensive record collection. Released by Needle to the Groove Records, the project started life as a three-part series on the webzine Nerdtorious (parts 1, 2, 3). For more about Breaking the Ice, you can read an article by Brandon Roos, an interview with DJ Platurn by Marke B, a short introduction by DJ Platurn to eight of the seventy records in the mix, or watch a six-minute mini-documentary before diving into the mix.

“The packaging contains loops, hinges, levers, and ribbons...” | MetaFilter
Microsoft's Xbox Adaptive Controller has packaging that gamers with disabilities can open without their teeth [The Verge] "Microsoft has clearly focused on accessibility for the controller, but it's also revealing this week that it has taken a unique approach to the packaging for the product. People spend hours watching gadget unboxings on YouTube, but you rarely see a box that's designed to be opened as easy as possible. That's a design consideration that Microsoft has taken to heart for its new Xbox Adaptive Controller packaging. "A lot of these limited mobility gamers are actually used to opening packages with their teeth," explains Mark Weiser, a packaging designer at Microsoft. The Xbox Adaptive Controller packaging can be opened a variety of ways, and it's now even easier with or without the use of teeth." [Previously.]
