Design Experience that Matters: How to Build a Z-Rack Whiteboard and Save $150

Every design studio goes through mountains of post-it notes while brainstorming and charting ideas. We love the portability of flip-chart posters, but even after moving to a big studio in Salem we never had enough wall space.

Then we found Make Space by Scott Doorley and Scott Witthoft at the Stanford’s d-school. Their design for a DIY whiteboard made from a garment z-rack was perfect: the wheels meant we could park them anywhere in the studio, and the bases nest together to reduce clutter. Building them ourselves saved money, which is great because we’re a cheapskate nonprofit and we wanted ten of them.

We made a short video to show you how we modified the Stanford z-rack whiteboard design, and to share some of the accessories we designed to make the z-racks even more useful. You can also find our HOWTO guide on Instructables. We’ve shared the z-rack parts as Autodesk Inventor and STL parts on Thingiverse so you can modify and print them yourself.

The Queen Of The Night, A Very Special Kind Of Orchid Cactus, Blooms Again At The St. Petersburg Botanical Garden

You have to stay up late to enjoy the opening of this extraordinary cactus, which is shaped like a majestic waterlily. If you are an early riser and usually early to bed – this plant is not for you! The queen of the night cactus flowers between dusk and dawn – for us she is the highlight of the party season.

A “Queen of the Night” cactus is in bloom at the St. Petersburg Botanical Garden, Russia. It is a night-flowering cactus that blooms with a great sense of drama. It blooms once a year for several hours only. The plant puts all of its reproductive energy into a single brief fling. It’s quite an extraordinary performance.

The flower is huge, deeply fragrant and glows as white as a full moon. Still, it’s a precarious way to make a living, and the true Queen, Selenicereus grandiflorus, is not often seen in cultivation.
