Double Space - Precision and Poetry in Motion E dward Barber & Jay Osgerby "‘ Double Space - Precision and Poetry in Motion’ is the latest exhibition by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, for the 2014 London Design Festival. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby are fascinated by aeronautical, automotive and maritime engineering, and the interplay between movement, performance and scale. Double Space at the Victoria and Albert Museum encapsulates these passions, with the largest structure that they have ever created. Doubles Space is designed to challenge and delight the visitor, creating a completely new way to experience the classic architecture and beautiful cartoons in the Raphael Gallery. Two enormous reflective silver elements are suspended in the ceiling space, and rotate in a series of choreographed movements. The project has been made possible with the enormous skill of a team of experts, and was commissioned by BMW and London Design Festival.”

Tokyo Smart Wheel : Smart Guiding System for Tourists

Tokyo Smart Wheel offers smart guiding for tourists that are not familiar with the city of Tokyo. It can be pretty challenging for them to navigate the city, especially those with lack of language skills needed to communicate easily. Even some streets don’t have name and the lack of Wi-Fi access makes it even more difficult to explore this awesome city. Considering these issues, especially when Tokyo will host various Olympic events in 2020, these industrial designers have come up with a design proposal for the solution. Tokyo Smart Wheel is your personal guide to the city of Tokyo. It’s an electric, self-stabilizing unicycle which can be found in different locations near venues, parked in one large station. Once you tap your ticket to the main station, the wheels are unlocked, it is also accompanied with a smart bracelet that can be used to activate the wheel when worn. Designers : Setareh Shamdani, Filippo Del Carlo, and Hsin-Hua (Sheana) Yu The smart system of this personal t

Vasa :A 17th Century Warship That Sank, Was Recovered And Now Sits in a Museum

In 1628, the Swedish warship Vasa set off on its maiden voyage from Stockholm harbor towards Poland, where a war was raging in the Baltic. Built by 400 craftsmen at the royal shipyard at Stockholm, the ship was richly decorated as a symbol of the king's ambitions for Sweden and himself. It was 69 meters long and was fitted with 64 cannons, and upon completion, it was of the most powerfully armed vessels in the world of that time. Unfortunately, Vasa was too top heavy and dangerously unstable. Despite the lack of stability, the king was eager to see her in battle and pushed her to sea. On the day of departure, a swelling crowd gathered at the harbor to watch the ship leave. Over a hundred crewmen along with women and children were on board as the crew was permitted to take family and guests along for the first part of the passage. After sailing just 1,300 meters, at the first strong breeze, the ship foundered, leaned over and sank. Around 30 people lost their lives. Once the ship’s

Oscar is an intelligent visual aid that provides you with unrestricted vision in your daily activities, it looks like glasses, but it’s not.
