The Japanese Shell Villa.


Shell House Villa is located in the Karuizawa region of Kitasaku, Nagano, Japan. Designed by architecture firm ARTechnic, the concrete villa with a large oval shell shaped structure is built in the middle of the forest.  The structure appears to float above the ground like a spacecraft, with trees growing around it, harmonizing the villa into the landscape.

This 329 square meter (3,541 sq. ft.) house has a central control system that enables all mechanical and electrical equipments to be managed by three buttons. A custom made floor-heating system minimizes the use of heat energy.  Check out the blueprints up top, and more photos of this fantastical villa down below.

The NEW Atari?!


Atari dominated the 1970s with games and consoles that delighted everyone for over a decade. In fact, some may say Atari even gave us Apple Computers and Steve Jobs, after he moved onto developing the most valuable company in the world with Woz post working on the Atari title Breakout in 1976 (Breakout was the basis and inspiration for certain aspects of the Apple II personal computer). However, Atari saw its decline towards the end of the 80s, with the likes of Nintendo and Sega taking the mantle. A little over 40 years later, Atari is back to reclaim past glory. Teased at CES back in June/July, the Ataribox home finally begins its pre-orders this Thursday.

The device will have a custom AMD processor and run Linux, giving the Ataribox the capability of playing both classic Atari games and mid-tier PC titles.  The Ataribox comes in two eye-catching finishes – a sleek glossed black with either a wood finish combination or an all glossed black look with red highlights. This device can sit on any table or drawers in the home and never look out of place. With quite an appealing aesthetic, the Ataribox will be sure to raise eyebrows and rekindle nostalgic memories once it’s released and in the homes of many come the Spring of 2018.
