Design Fancy

Core77 has been featuring fictional stories of industrial designers by Matt Brown. My favourite was Cyprien Côté:

A designer who noticed that a certain beetle in Italy would go out into the sun before an earthquake. This led him to design an earthquake warning system "INSECTES TREMOLOITANTS" that has saved over 800 lives to date!

The stories are as amazing as the fake product design.
