SpaceX Makes the Prospect of Space Travel Even More Alluring with These Retro Mars Tourism Posters

We love sci-fi. We are fascinated by space and thrilled by the prospect of travelling to Mars someday and we love art. And so, it is only natural that we fell right in love with SpaceX Mars Tourism Posters. And they are not just any posters. That exciting prospect is pitched in 100 percent retro flair – like something you will see in the sci-fi movies of the 60s which incidentally, was the height of the space race. Anyways, it will be quite a while before travelling or colonizing the Red Planet is even possible and even so, we are undaunted and wonder what it will be like to be zipping up to the summit of Olympus Mons in pod-like cable cars and imagine the exhilaration of getting to the camping ground within Valles Marineris in a jetpack. And how about that space-age cruise aboard the Moons of Mars? That sounds pretty intriguing too.

It suffice to say that when it comes to luxury in mobile, it is kind of the German automaker’s forte. It has taken its know-how in VIP pampering to a greater height in quite a literal way by collaborating with German aircraft interior specialist, Lufthansa Technik, to create luxury VIP cabins that looks like luxury home away from home. The concept has, apparently, been completed and showcased at the recent EBACE 2015 – the show which saw the debut of Mercedes’ Eurocopter cabin design in 2012. Catering to the airline company’s fleet of short- and medium-haul aircraft, the luxe up cabin throws out everything you may know about aircraft cabin and replaces it with an organic, flowing design that dispense with separation between ceiling, wall and floor.

Diamond is a symbol of everlasting love that dates back thousands of years. In modern time, it is still perceived as such but more like the perfect sale pitch for merchants.

Poopins Lets You Mark Dogs’ Turds So That Others Won’t Step on it

We have never posted a product that involves so many images of crap. And so here they are in all its sh*tty glory but censored to protect your appetite in case you’re reading this as you slurp on your instant ramen. Though the product ain’t crap, btw, if that’s what you are thinking. If anything, we thought they are actually quite brilliant. The product in question is Poopins and like its name suggest, it is designed to pin on dog droppings to warn others of the imminent ‘minefield’ around them. So, yeah. You’d be a morally responsible citizen, unlike those let their pooches do their number two without clearing them. Shame on them. Anywho, each Poopin is made of crushed waste rocks (stone, marble, tiles and such) paper known as Rockstone which will biodegrade after prolong exposure to the sun. It is thick, at 560gsm, which makes it tough enough to be pin on the hardest canine turd you can find while thin and small enough to be slip into your wallet.

Foldable Micro Size Drone Uses Origami Technique, Unfolds in a Snap

The now-popular configuration of drone, i.e. quad or multi rotor setup, makes them difficult to stowaway. Even the smallest of drones can’t fit into your pocket without breaking a rotor or two. That’s probably not a concern for hobbyists who rather the drone be bigger for visual clarity sake when flying. But if a drone could be make pocket size, it will greatly benefit first responders who can leverage on the size for portability while taking advantage of what a flying robot offers, such as sending it into disaster area for aerial survey. This is what the Foldable Drone, developed by Swiss Federal Institute of Technology’s researchers Stefano Mintchev and Dario Floreano, can do. It is foldable, drawing inspiration from traditional origami to achieve this feat, and unlike some science fiction flick where you see arms of the drone slowly deploys (in a dramatic way), the rotor arms of this miniature robot snap into place in less than a second.
