Listening to Birdman and Lil Wayne’s “Fire Flame Spitter” will have a brand new meaning after you hear it with the Pyro Board.  The board itself is nothing more than a Ruben’s Tube (not a Rubix Cube) that’s stacked horizontally, creating a plane of fire spots that are influenced by sound waves.

A Home-Made School?


Hand-built in four months by architects, local craftsmen, pupils, parents and teachers, this primary school in Rudrapur (a village in north west Bangladesh), uses traditional methods and materials of construction but adapts them in new ways.  The architects, Anna Aeringer from Austria and Eike Roswag from Germany, made every effort to engage the skills of local craftsmen, helping them refine processes and learn new techniques that they could then use to improve the general standard of rural housing.

Sunlight and ventilation can be regulated through the use of shutters.  in Rudrapur, the traditional local materials are bamboo for constructions and earth for walls and foundations, straw for the roofs and jute rope for lashing constructions.  Earthbound materials such as loam and straw are combined with lighter elements like bamboo sticks and nylon lashing to create a environmentally sustainable foundation.  Thick walls assure a comfortable climate on the ground floor of the building.
