Not a Common Matreshka

Russian Matreshka

Probably “Matreshka” is the most famous Russian thing – it’s a wooden doll that has another smaller doll inside which also carries smaller one and this can extend up to 30 smaller and smaller dolls until reaching the smallest tiny doll thingie. They are usually painted in accordance with Russian tradition, like on the photo above.

But these day design studio ArtLebedev.ru has expressed another view on Matreshkas – no using one of their products you can memorize the data measurement units. The biggest doll is called Terabyte and the smallest is… ugh, what’s there, smaller than a byte?

    • I wish I could say – “she will be back” but it ain’t gonna happen buddy 🙁 But don’t worry too much Texas1, in about ten years time you will save up for a new trailer 🙂

  1. I remember buying a matreshka here and the label said “Made in Taiwan”. I thought that was an insult so I didn’t buy it…

  2. I would be amazed if something like this could be made in Taiwan affordably. They probably make them in China where slave labor is readily available.

      Year-to-date, the top ten Texas commodities exported (in terms of dollar value) are chemicals, computer and electronic products, nonelectrical machinery, transportation equipment, petroleum and coal products, electrical equipment, primary metals, fabricated metals, agricultural products and food and kindred products.

      Don’t you wish that Russia was this good?

  3. i think it’s time that Texas1 goes and sits on something, that something being a ‘hui’. maybe then he can export his own porn to the perverts down in the sewers.

  4. It’s матрёшка, not матрешка. So it’s matryoshka in latin alphabet (english transcription), not “matreshka”.

  5. you dont have to worry about anything smaller than a byte. if you look at the photo, you can clearly see the only units used are TB, GB, MB, KB, and B

  6. i like artemy lebedev’s (and his studio’s) creations!

    if only the optimus was the initially planned 300$ and not 1300$ 🙁

  7. FYI, matreshka come from Japan where it was known for centuries. First ‘russian’ matreshkas were sold in Paris some about 1900.

  9. This season, wedges are all the rage and thats a good thing. These sassy sandals are great for everything from special occasions to a night out on the town. While those sexy stilettos were fun and took you everywhere you needed to go, this is the summer of the wedge and it couldn’t be better.
