Sometimes the available quantitative data is too limited to enable us to see what’s really going on — and that can lead us to the wrong conclusions.

Comments Off on Will 3D Printers Make Baggage Fees and Lost Luggage Obsolete?

Although the prospect of traveling is always exciting, packing everything is a drag. First there’s the worry of forgetting something, then there’s the task of cramming everything you need into the available baggage. Then comes the fateful moment that you arrive at the check-in counter and put the luggage on the scale. And even if you clock in under the acceptable weight limit, you’ve still got to fork over the baggage fee and pray that it arrives at the same place you do. A new art exhibit called  Lost Luggage   imagines a future where this entire process is digitized, so packing for a trip is as easy as sending an email to a 3D printer at your destination. Follow the link below to learn how it may work. READ MORE> Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: 3D printers , 3Dprinting , baggage fees , ecouterre , Janne Kyttanan , luggage , traveling

Right now, the cost of a desktop 3D printer is out of reach for many consumers, which prevents the technology from reaching widespread saturation. But for those waiting on the sidelines for 3D printers to become more affordable, the wait may soon be over.  Pirate 3D  just launched a Kickstarter campaign for The Buccaneer , a new 3D printer that will retail with a price point of just $347 when it hits the market in December.

Disadvantages of Aviation Biofuels

Comments Off on Disadvantages of Aviation Biofuels

In the past couple of years, we’ve seen many, many tests being carried out by numerous different airlines and agencies to study the possibilities of using biofuel as an entire replacement for or as a blend with conventional jet fuel. But biofuels as a replacement for petroleum-based jet fuel may not be the ideal solution. Biofuels are better than straight petroleum-based products, but there are drawbacks to biofuels , as well. Dedicating cropland to grow fuel crops can cut down on the available land and farming resources for food production. There are arguments against algae-based fuels, as well. They don’t compete with food for farmland, but the industrial infrastructure needed to produce algae-based fuel at scale is a daunting prospect. Of course, conversion to any new material is a daunting prospect. The development of new technologies will eventually be necessary, one way or another. To continue to research alternatives and to find the best mix of feedstock for alternative fuels is importatnt not only for aviation, but for all energy technologies. Virgin Atlantic, which is one of the many airlines to have tested biofuels , is now exploring a jet fuel replacement that, rather than using bio materials as feedstock, is derrived from waste industrial gas from steel production.  But if that relies on petroleum fuels as the original feedstock, then the long term viability of that process is also questionable. via: Treehugger and Guardian

Haus N: A cube shaped house worth living in

Comments Off on Haus N: A cube shaped house worth living in

Neha Gargi: Haus N Designed by sSnn Architekten Cubes, one of the simplest and solid forms in architecture, are great solutions for making the best use of the available space. And Haus N designed by Synn Architekten from Austria is a perfect example of this. Located amidst the greenery of Koreneuburg, it is a simple yet beautiful place of dwelling for any family. Picture Gallery Haus N Haus N, a single family residence is designed by sSnn Architekten Shaped in the shape of the alphabet ‘L’ the single storied house looks quite modern. The house is big enough to hold a small family of two or three in it. The house has a carefully concealed doorway hidden behind, which is accessible through a series of concrete platforms. It’s possible to mistake Haus N for a mobile or pool house from a distance, although it’s nothing like that. Another excellent addition to the house is a humongous sized facade made of glass, which can be opened or closed at any time. This excellent feature allows the residents of the house to convert their rooms into an outdoor living space at any time, letting them enjoy their stay in the lap of nature. The house also has a pool, which adds to the otherwise minimalistic design of Haus N. At night or even during the day, the interplay of lights and shadows on the pool create a magical show of reflections on the house. Additionally, a clever use of glass in the design lets the house borrow colors from its natural surroundings doing away with any sort of monotony. Overall, Haus N achieves a perfect balance of green living, airy and spacious rooms and a beautiful blend of the natural surroundings. It’s a great choice for anyone who enjoys sun and natural air.
