  • http://www.ndc.co.jp/hara/home/haptic/index.html

    The flipflaps were already done in this Haptic exhibition a while ago and I find it a little unfear that it is ok to present here as his work, it does go against copy right…

    Japaman says:
  • i agree, it is definitely not the first time those sandals have been seen, however, if they were indeed an early student project the timing of the copyright would be up in the air.

    karl says:
  • it is more than 10 years that grass sandals are proposed.
    this is the best proposal so far!
