Louis Vuitton Store In Rome Gets Geek Chic Makeover

The screens play a loop of cascading water, trailing vines and even a classic Louis Vuitton trunk pattern.

Pixelated Leather Jewelry

Posted By Tech on May 22, 2007 at 1:03PM

The 2007 International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York kicked off yesterday, and while I was unable to sneak away - ahem, I couldn't miss Maker Faire - plenty of bloggers are keeping me updated on all of the geeky wares.
