    Walking City by Spanish architect Manuel Domínguez

    Gear  |  Projects
    A Walking City designed by Spanish architect Manuel Domínguez. Manuel Dominguez’s “Very Large Structure,” is a nomadic city that can move on caterpillar tracks to locations where work and resources are abundant.
    "Of course this is not the first time that the idea of a nomadic city has been proposed. Ron Herron’s Walking City is one of the more recognizable Archigram designs from the 1960s, and has been influential to architectural theory ever since. However, the design for the “Very Large Structure” expands on the Walking City by including strong proposals for energy generation on board the city."

    Motorola Project Ara

    Gear  |  Projects
    Motorola is developing a free, open hardware platform for creating highly modular smartphones. The design for Project Ara consists of what we call an endoskeleton (endo) and modules.  The endo is the structural frame that holds all the modules in place. A module can be anything, from a new application processor to a new display or keyboard, an extra battery, a pulse oximeter--or something not yet thought of!  So you can upgrade your processor, battery, screen, all just by plopping modular components onto an "endoskeleton" base. It' still a working prototype.

    Artist Turns 1988 Ford Fiesta Into Sculpture of a Squatting Transformer

    Gear  |  Projects


    British artist Hetain Patel has spent three months turning an old 1988 Ford Fiesta into a sculpture inspired by the US blockbuster Transformers. Hetain Patel, 32 from Bolton, created the sculpture in homage to the American film and toy franchise, with his engineer brother Pritum and his father, Pravin, who converts cars into hearses for his job.
    "My first car was a 1988 Ford Fiesta gifted to me by my father as I turned 17. Born in the UK to immigrant Indian parents, the passing of a car between generations provided me with my first taste of independence. In this new work, I’ve turned my hand to a newly acquired 1988 Ford Fiesta of the same specifications as my original car to create my first sculpture. Manufactured in England, this car stands as a symbol of working class Britain, a native body, albeit here a car body."
    The video is a time-lapse video of Hetain’s build process.
