Now that Apple has implemented touch bar on its MacBook Pro, it wouldn’t be farfetched to think that in future, the entire keyboard, along with the touch pad, will be replaced by a huge-ass touch-based keyboard. Such a design is exactly what Seattle-based industrial design student Daniel Brunsteiner is driving with his MacBook Pro 2018 Concept. The concept is nothing less than audacious, but the possibility is very real and while regular users may not appreciate the huge touch canvas, creative professionals could benefit from it.

Elon Musk is a visionary who nobody really knows what goes inside the complex head of his, including his choice of personal companion. Since after Paypal, the man, as it seems, wants to turn the world into one that many sci-fi novels and movies have predicted and these futuristic tunnels dreamed up The Boring Company is one of them. The Boring Company is anything but boring. The ‘boring’ here is obviously does mean mundane, but rather, more of digging, tunnelling and stuff, and hence the futuristic tunnels pitched forth by the company.

In what could be the craziest proposition we heard this week, a New York architecture firm, Clouds Architecture Office, has proposed an outlandish architecture which will be truly the ‘world’s tallest building ever’. Dubbed Analemma Tower, this insane idea proposed the building to be built not on solid ground like every other mortal structures, but it will be, wait for it… suspended from an orbiting asteroid 31,068 miles (50,000 km) above the Earth (basically, a rock in outer space).

However, due to the zoning laws, there’s a limit to how high a building can get in a leanly packed urban jungle and to get around this while still accommodating insane amount of population, architecture studio oiio has came up with an architecture with an unexpected turn – like quite literally. Continue reading Insane ‘Bent’ Building Concept Would Be The World’s Longest At 4,000 Ft
We talk and hear a lot about the future. Future of transportation, future of housing, future technology, but one thing we almost never talk about is future of fashion, specifically, kicks, and so it is kind of refreshing to pick up a piece that talked about the future of sneakers through a concept rendering. Originally conceived as an entry for the Pensole contest “Fusion of Footwear” by Mexico-based industrial and product design student David Olivares, this pair of sneakers of the future imagines an all-condition footwear that was a collaboration between two German brands: Adidas Y-3 and apparel label ACRONYM, to result in what the designer referred to as a “high fashion utility high-top sneaker,” a boot-high-top hybrid called Y-A FUYU HIGH.

So you think a curved display laptop is crazy? Well, it is, but that’s until Razer’s bold and pretty much classified as mental multi-monitor laptop comes along. Code name Project Valarie, this ambitious multi-monitor gaming laptop promised a whole new level of immersion even when you are on the road and yes, you heard that right, this thing is a beast and it has not one, not two, but three displays built into it.

Bolts and nuts come in a myriad of sizes and having two systems, namely, imperial and metric, only bumps up the variety further. Depending on your level of expertise, so to speak, you may own a complete set of wrenches that covers many sizes of both systems, or you could, for the basic of basics, have an adjustable wrench. The former clutters your garage and latter is not exactly the not most trusted way do the job. If anything, adjustable wrench runs the risk of rounding the bolt or nut as having a two-sided grip is, like I said, not the most trusted way.
