Top government officials in Dubai had unveiled their vast Mars 2117 Project.The plan is to build a livable city on Mars roughly the size of Chicago (606.1km² ) for humans to move in. It aims to be finished by 2117, exactly 100 years from now - not just the building part, but also to populate our new colony on the Red Planet.While the details of the project have not been revealed, Dubai did say the first step towards realizing the ambitious plan is education. “The Mars 2117 Project is a long term project, where our first objective is to develop our educational system so our sons will be able to lead scientific research across the various sectors" explained Sheikh Mohamed, the minister and ruler of Dubai.There are still some fundamental technical issues we need to get out of the way before we can start packing. And a part from that, would this possibility only be interesting for a small group of people? Mohamed promises to share the research results for international access throughout the building up that would last a century. “The UAE became part of a global scientific drive to explore the space, and we hope to serve humanity through this project” says the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.One hundred years might sound like a long time, but not when you are planning to move of population of 600,000 to a planet that only 140 years ago didn't have a name. Despite a number of tryouts, so far living on Mars remains a dream.Source: Science Alert.

How about sleeping out in the open air in the Swiss Alps. No Wi-Fi, no walls, no bathroom and most certainly no roof, this is Null Stern's latest hotel concept. With its 6.463 feet above sea level, the hoteliers are taking “a room with a view” to the next level.Null Stern was founded in 2008 when brothers Frank and Patrik Riklin and their partner Daniel Charbonnier, converted an underground nuclear bunker into a hotel. The project ran from 2009 to 2010, before it turned into a museum. In German their name means “zero stars”, branding their venture “the world's first zero-star hotel". According to the collective “the only star is you”.Open air hotel in Switzerland offers panoramic view "Even though this version is radically different from the first one in the nuclear bunker, the essence and the spirit of the concept remains the same – to put the guest at the center of the experience and to focus on the intangible by reducing everything else to the minimum" Charbonnier says.Open air hotel in Switzerland offers panoramic view The open-air room is located in the mountains of Graubünden and provides a butler, a bed, two nightstands and some lightning. Initially, designed for the Art Safiental land art festival, the stay is bookable for 250 Swiss francs per night. Null Stern is planning to expand their open-air rooms to several locations, turning the whole of Switzerland into a hotel.Source: Dezeen [post_title] => Panoramic View in Open Air Hotel [post_excerpt] => Open air hotel in Switzerland offers panoramic view.

The workshop will be held during the 5th edition of What Design Can Do, an international event about the impact of design.‘Why are technologies often half-baked versions of the brilliant dreams we have? Isn’t our shiny mobile phone merely a watered-down materialization of the dream of telepathic communication? And why aren’t we able to smell in the digital realm?’During the workshop, we will dream up scenarios that seem too fantastic to be true at first, but that actually give clear directions and an inspiring vision to the development of future services and experiences, resulting in a more fulfilling technological environment in which our senses are truly acknowledged.A central tool will be the Pyramid of Technology, a conceptual model developed by Next Nature Network that explores how technology becomes nature in seven steps. The Pyramid of Technology facilitates a profound discussion around a more inclusive understanding of technology, and serves both as a method for critical analysis, as well as a speculative design thinking tool for innovative strategies.WHAT DESIGN CAN DO 21 & 22 May 2015, Amsterdam (The Netherlands) Information and tickets: www.whatdesigncando.com

The drones are capable of complex motion behavior, either as individual units or as a group. Each unit contains several sensors, allowing the micro drone to stabilize itself in mid-air and recover from unexpected errors.While the drones still require external localization, the results represent the first steps towards the development of advanced swarm behavior within drones. This could have a major impact on the future of automated unmanned aerial vehicles, commercial airlines or even flying cars.

These sensors help to form a network where objects can communicate with each other and with us. A recent project, named GENESI, might make it possible for city infrastructures to join this conversation as well.Funded by the European Union, GENESI stands for Green Sensor Networks for Structural Monitoring. The project aims to implant sensors into various components of city infrastructures, which will enable a more efficient way of checking for stability and possible maintenance. These sensors include vibrating strain gauges, displacement meters, pressure sensors, temperature sensors and soil moisture sensors. The electonic devices are designed to harvest power by themselves and they can communicate fresh readings to scientists whenever requested.A pilot project location for testing these sensors is the underground rail system of Rome. Sensors are placed in certain concrete segments of the railway; they pick up vibration data and forward it to remote servers via a wireless network system. These data can later be used by civil engineers to plan for future maintenance operations.The obstacles for the project are dark tunnels, where sunlight is not available to provide power to the sensors. This handicap might require some form of battery changing. Since the subway is not  an easy place for humans work, the job might be carried out by drones in the future.The success of GENESI could will pave the way for more efficient city structure maintenance and could possibly prevent accidents caused by infrastructure failures.Story and image via Popular Science [post_title] => Communicating with City Infrastructures [post_excerpt] => A recent project, named GENESI, might make it possible for city infrastructures to communicate with us.

Recently 338 sharks in Western Australia subscribed to the microblogging service. They are now tweeting out where they are.Australian researchers have tagged 338 sharks with acoustic transmitters that monitor where the animals swim. When a tagged shark is about half a mile away from a beach, it triggers a computer alert, which tweets out a message on the Surf Life Saving Western Australia Twitter feed. The tweet notes the shark's size, breed and approximate location.Since 2011, Australia has had more fatal shark attacks than any other country; there have been six over the past two years. The tagging system alerts beachgoers far quicker than traditional warnings, says Chris Peck, operations manager of Surf Life Saving Western Australia. "Now it's instant information," he tells Sky News, "and really people don't have an excuse to say we're not getting the information. It's about whether you are searching for it and finding it."The tags will also be monitored by scientists studying the sharks. Researchers have tagged great whites, whaler sharks and tiger sharks.Via NPR, via Skynews. Image via Hashslush.
