This is fun. The Wilderness Downtown, another Chrome experiment.
I'm amazed by Kodak's first digital camera from 1975. Instead of saving the data on a card it used a standard cassette. It took 23 seconds to record the digitized image to the cassette. The design is beautiful too, only engineers can design this way.
Bob Hoover, a pilot legend, flies with his engines off, lands on one wheel and pours tea upside-down. How that works is explained here.
Like this book. Pig 05049 was an actual pig, raised and slaughtered on a commercial farm in the Netherlands. Rotterdam's Christien Meindertsma was shocked to discover that she could document 185 products contributed to by the animal. Design was done in collaboration with Swiss designer Julie Joliat.

To be honest, normally we don't really like to work for Swiss clients. But there are exceptions – like Chocolats Halba – a Swiss chocolate factory which is determined to produce a high quality chocolate, sustainable and fair. In collaboration with yatah we will develop a strategy to establish Halba as global leader in their segment. There are interesting clients in Switzerland, good to know.

Warm and efficient architecture, just how I like it. More here.
Don't know how safe this would be, but nice thinking: The Chinese company Shenzhen Hashi Future Parking Equipment Co. (what a great company name!) thinks it might be able to unjam the cities streets with a concept it calls the 3D Fast Bus, a kind of giant bus/train that straddles the street and allows cars to drive right under it. This means that it isn't slowed down by traffic and it doesn't add to traffic neither. More here.
