Shibusa Bike Features Interchangeable Components to Suit Rider’s Needs

Elvin Chu, an industrial designer at Atlanta’s Georgia Tech University, has come up with innovative project: Shibusa. It’s an electric bike that features modular components. As population in the city continues to grow, transportation starts to become a big issue, even though city dwellers don’t usually need cars, they don’t really enjoy walking. This bike offers a hybrid solution to make the appeal of traditional bike intact while offering electric-assist for long commutes.

From initial concepts, Elvin Chu arrived to a smart solution that yielded a platform and systems design approach to offer flexibility to users. Shibusa is a special bike that carry the benefit of electric bike while maintaining a human-powered bike when necessary components are swapped out. Those components are upgradeable and interchangeable for different kind possibilities.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
