    Japan Just Cancelled Its Expensive Olympic Stadium


    The Guardian reported that the Japanese government had reached a decision about the fate of its New National Stadium after two years of protests, redesigns, and cost-reductions. “We have decided to go back to the start on the Tokyo Olympics-Paralympics stadium plan, and start over from zero,” said prime minister Shinzo Abe, according to The Guardian. The new stadium will have to be designed and built in less than five years,a new national stadium that would be ready to host the Rugby World Cup in 2019, the Tokyo 2020 Games and meet the need for a new home for Japanese sport for the next 50 to 100 years. The stadium was designed by high-profile UK/Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, and was originally projected to cost around $3.1 billion—as we pointed out at the time, that’s $2.6 billion more than Hadid’s Olympic venue in London.

    Solar Paper A PaperThin Solar Panel Can Charge Your Phone on the
    It’s called Solar Paper(on Kickstarter): 7.5 inches long, 3.5 wide, and .15 thin. There’s a .45-inch thick USB charging port at the top, which sticks out of your book like a bookmark that sucks in that precious sunlight. One of these panels weights 4.5 ounces and equals 2.5 watts, and you can connect more panels with magnets for more power. In good weather, two connected panels can fully juice an iPhone 6 in about two-and-a-half hours. You can use it to charge anything that connects with USB: GoPro, external batteries, Bluetooth speakers, digital cameras, and so on. Developed by solar company Yolk, the project’s raked in over $420,000, way past its modest $50K goal.
