Comments Off on Tiny coffee bar incorporates existing graffiti into recessed design

Australian design firm NOMA* has transformed this small recess into a unique take-away coffee bar in Mount Lawley. Rather than completely redesigning the original facade, the compact 11 square meter shop incorporates the preexisting graffiti art on the adjacent exterior. The Standby Espresso Tenancy exemplifies adaptive reuse of small, micro size, underutilized spaces and illustrates how small projects can engage local communities. This project has been entered in the Small Projects category of the Australian Institute of Architects W.A. Architecture Awards . + NOMA* The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Grey for Good, the philanthropic arm of Grey Group Singapore , has teamed up with DanChurchAid (DCA) to drive support for creating safer communities in post-conflict zones around the world – communities free of dangerous remnants of war such as land mines, unexploded ammunition and cluster bombs. This campaign tackles a topic often described as one of the most evil problems affecting millions of civilians in over 60 countries around the world. And while it will take a mammoth effort by DCA and other organizations to eradicate, the topic does not feature a lot in the public conversation or the media. To change this, the initiative #ClearThePitch builds an emotional link to one of the world’s biggest sports: soccer . It’s a universal sport and is played on streets, fields, playgrounds, parking lots and many more places. But due to remnants of war such as land mines, cluster bombs and unexploded ammunition, in large parts of the world playing soccer on fields can be extremely dangerous. Especially for children. With #ClearThePitch, you can help bring attention to the problem and help clean up these areas so kids can play safe again. + DanChurchAid + Grey

Comments Off on New Nanoribbon Implant Powers Pacemakers With Heartbeats

Researchers from several institutions in the U.S. and Tsinghua University in China have developed a new implantable generator that can convert heartbeats into energy. The device utilizes a nanoribbon piezoelectric element , and it can be placed on the heart to draw enough energy from the organ’s natural motion to power a pacemaker or other implantable devices. Yes, we are that much closer to becoming cyborgs.
