Science vs. Music.

Sound in science is defined as ‘vibrations transmitted through an elastic material or a solid, liquid, or gas, with frequencies‘, but once you incorporate the vastness of what sound is capable of, things can get pretty interesting.  Artist Nigel Stanford displays this perfectly with his demonstration Cymatics.  Check the video below, and click the pic to see more of “Solar Echoes” work.

Dutch architecture studio Universe Architecture is planning to construct a house with a 3D printer for the first time. The Landscape House will be printed in sections using the giant D-Shape printer, which can produce sections of up to 6 x 9 metres using a mixture of sand and a binding agent. Architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars of Universe Architecture will collaborate with Italian inventor Enrico Dini, who developed the D-Shape printer, to build the house, which has a looping form based on a Möbius strip. The team are working with mathematician and artist Rinus Roelofs to develop the house, which they estimate will take around 18 months to complete.

The Flying Hovercraft


Is it a boat, plane or a flying boat? No no its a Flying Hovercraft that glides over land and water yet also soars in the air up to 70 mph with the aid of integrated wings. The flying hovercraft is powered by a 130-hp twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled gasoline engine, turbocharged and fuel-injected. The flying hovercraft can fly you over the fresh or saltwater and up to 30% inclines over sand, mud, grass, swamp, desert, ice, and snow, its wings and horizontal elevator enable pilots to simply hop over water or land-based obstacles up to 20-inche high insurmountable to a typical hovercraft.

The Digital Hourglass.


Every smartphone comes with a timer, but you’ll soon ditch your app for Metaphys’ Nebula digital hour glass the minute you see its glowing pixels drop. Even if at over foot tall it gobbles up more kitchen counter space than it really needs to.

Powered by a pair of AA batteries or a USB connection, the $62 Nebula can be easily programmed in one minute increments using one of the two buttons on top. So if you just need 30 seconds on the clock you’re out of luck, but who cares when watching this thing in action is so mesmerizing? When the timer runs out and all of the pixels have fallen to the lower section, a beeping alarm will sound to notify you in case you’re not watching. But really, who would ever let this out of their sight while it was running?

The Sandglass Light.


The sense of déjà vu is overwhelming when you look at the Sandglass Light, however with the exception to the shape, little else is common between the old and the new. Clearly inspired by the age-old hourglass shape, this refined version has simple functions and does away with the timer. Three settings and minimal twists encourage you to use the lamp more as ambient lighting than just a novelty fixture. This new avatar is all about refinements.
