Click here to view the embedded video. Look out,  Tesla ! NASA’s  Johnson Space Center has just entered the race for the coolest car with some truly awesome technological advancements. NASA engineers recently unveiled their Modular Robotic Vehicle prototype , which boasts four independent wheels and a remote-control mode that allows it to essentially drive itself. While it is admittedly not the sleekest-looking vehicle on this planet, looking more akin to golf cart than other electric cars on the market, it has a slew of smart features that may inspire other car makers to get back to the drawing board.

Comments Off on Kinetic Moti lamp inflates into a glowing sphere in response to movement

Love furniture with personality? Design studio Toer takes expressive fixtures to a new level with Moti , a kinetic lamp that inflates into a radiant sphere in response to movement. Toer unveiled Moti this week as part of the ‘Moving Design’ exhibit, a line of new interactive lights launched at Lambrate 14 . The speed at which the Moti lamp inflates depends on the environment: Moti inflates slowly in quiet and peaceful surroundings, but will shiver and inflate faster in response to active settings. Moti comes in three different types and sizes and each LED lamp comprises a multiplex base with an HDPE inflatable shade. + Toer + Milan Design Week The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
