Responsive Marketing Emails

Email marketing is one of the easiest and efficient marketing tactics a business can implement. Emails give marketers an outlet to target an audience with real-time updates. For the longest time, marketing emails were simply an electronic version of print mail. In the past, emails took on an admittedly watered down version— often “plain-text”— due to coding constraints. Recently, email marketing has seen great advancements, of which you should take note.132

Floating, Responsive 3D Holograms

Yes, holograms are a thing now.

Haven’t we had those for a while, you might ask? I seem to remember CNN going all-out during the 2008 election-coverage arms race when it beamed correspondent Jessica Yellin into Wolf Blitzer’s Situation Room.

And for that matter, didn’t Coachella holographically resurrect Tupac Shakur in 2012?

Responsive Design of the Future

In CSS, float and clear serve for layout much the same way as the tables they replaced: As stand-ins that work well enough. But they’re still limited. One proposed solution is called the CSS Flexible Box Layout Module, commonly called the Flexbox.

Flexbox is a recommendation in CSS3 that enables designers to control the arrangement of elements on a page with more finesse than contemporary CSS approaches which have become common because we didn’t have a better solution.115

A mollusk of a different stripe

Optical features embedded in marine shells may help develop responsive, transparent displays.

The blue-rayed limpet is a tiny mollusk that lives in kelp beds along the coasts of Norway, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Portugal, and the Canary Islands. These diminutive organisms — as small as a fingernail — might escape notice entirely, if not for a very conspicuous feature: bright blue dotted lines that run in parallel along the length of their translucent shells. Depending on the angle at which light hits, a limpet’s shell can flash brilliantly even in murky water.
