Have you ever slept at the airport?
The very idea scares the pee out of me. Some people do, though, and those people are crazy. For those of us who want the convenience of sleeping at the airport, without so much of the crazy, there’s these amazing things right here! “Sleep Box” they go by the name of, designed by Arch Group for those who need private time in strange, unfriendly places!
There’s a thousand instances where the ideal personal cubical could come in handy. Here’s one of them: the airport. In between flights, what do you do? Sit in some marginally comfortable seats. Lots of time in between flights, what do you do? Sleep box.
The box itself is 2mx1.4mx2.3m. The main bed is 2×0.6m, equipped with an automatic system which changes the linens (think Fifth Element.) The bed is a soft, flexible strip of polymer and pulp tissue.
Ventilation system, sound alerts, built-in LCD television, wireless internet access, power sockets, extra luggage space under lounges. Payment is made in time, anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours.
The rest I leave up to your imagination! Its a nice concept and needs to implemented at airport handling passengers with flight changeovers.
Burj Dubai finally opened up to public on the eve of 4th Jan 2010, with a most spectacular fanfare of its kind. Thousand gathered to see the opening ceremony, blessed by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashed Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai.
At 828m and 162 floors high, the Burj Dubai has notched up a string of titles. The superscraper, built at a whopping cost of $1.5 billion, is currently both the tallest building and the tallest free-standing structure in the world. It boasts more stories than any other building on the planet, is home to the highest-occupied floor and has the world’s highest outdoor observation deck, aptly called ‘At the Top‘ – situated on the gaspingly-high 124th floor.
The total weight of aluminum used in the Burj Dubai’s construction is equivalent to that of five A380 aircraft, while the total length of stainless steel bull nose fins used in the building is equal to 293 times the height of the Eiffel Tower. A staggering 58,900 cu yd of concrete was used in the tower’s construction – enough to lay a 2,065km-long pavement and equal in weight to around 110,000 elephants.
The Burj Dubai is expected to use an average of 946,000 litres of water each day. During peak cooling conditions, the tower will drink up around 12,500 tons of cooling – equal to the cooling capacity offered by about 10,000 tons of melting ice. On to electricity, and the tower will power through around 50 MVA of electricity at peak times – the equivalent of having some 500,000 100-watt lightbulbs burning at the same time. That’ll be some utilities bill.
More than 28,000 glass panels, each individually hand-cut, were used in the exterior cladding of the Burj Dubai – requiring some 300 cladding specialists to be flown in from China to attach the panels.
At the peak of construction, 175 cladding panels were added to the Burj Dubai per day. Each has been specially designed to withstand Dubai’s scorching summer heat and has undergone dynamic wind and water testing – at the hands of a World War II airplane engine no less.
Courtesy of Dubai’s steamy climate, the Burj Dubai is expected to sweat out a significant amount of condensation – particularly in the summer months. These droplets will be siphoned off to a tank in the basement car park, and used to water the tower’s plants and landscaping features. It’s expected that 15,000 litres – enough to fill 20 Olympic-sized pools- will be gathered each year.
Construction on the Burj Dubai began in January 2004, and took some 22 million man-hours to complete. The tower became the world’s tallest free-standing structure after just 1,325 days, eclipsing Canada’s CN Tower, which stands at 533.33m tall.
Some 35,700 metric tons of steel was needed to kit out the Burj Dubai, enough to stretch a quarter of the way around the globe if laid end-to-end. The tower’s curtain – or outer – wall is 27-5 acres across, equivalent in size to 17 football fields.
There will be 1,044 residential apartments, 49 office floors and the Armani Hotel Dubai, which will have 160 rooms spread amongst the first 39 floors. Additional features include an eleven hectare park, six water features and space for 3,000 underground parking spaces.
Burj Dubai is home to 57 elevators and 8 escalators. The tower’s service elevator will have a capacity of 5,500 kg and is the world’s tallest service elevator. The lifts serving the Observation Deck will travel at an eye-watering 10m per second. Still, with the job of traversing the world’s longest travel distance from lowest to highest stop, they do need to be fast. Each cab will hold between 12 and 14 people.
In the event of fire – don’t panic. You won’t be expected to walk down all 162 floors if the lifts are out-of-service. Instead, there are pressurized, air-conditioned refuge areas every 25 floors or so, where you can huddle to await rescue.
With 28,261 glass panels stretching up more than 600m, keeping the Burj Dubai’s windows clean is a challenge in itself. The building has a string of permanent machines installed at floors 40, 73 and 109 that can cross the building on tracks to keep the windows sparkling. But during ‘normal’ weather conditions, it’s expected to take three to four months to clean the tower’s entire exterior façade. Megarme, is the which will keep the exteriors clean.
On a clear day, the tip of the Burj Dubai’s spire can be seen from 95km away. Up on the Observation Deck, situated on the 124th floor, visitors will be able to see as far as 80km away through the room’s ceiling-to-floor glass walls – that’s twice the distance from Dubai to Al Ain.
Merry Christmas. If you have not yet planned your Christmas, how about visit the home of Jesus.
Yes, the house where Jesus lived, has been found in Nazareth.
Israeli archaeologists on Monday unveiled what they said were the remains of the first dwelling in Nazareth that could date back to the time of Jesus. The finding could shed new light on what the hamlet was like during the period the New Testament says Jesus lived there as a boy.
The dwelling and older discoveries of nearby tombs in burial caves suggest that Nazareth was an out-of-theway hamlet of around 50 houses on a four-acre land. It was evidently populated by Jews of modest means who kept camouflaged grottos to hide from Roman invaders, said archaeologist Yardena Alexandre, excavations chief at the Israel Antiquities Authority.
Based on the clay and chalk shards found at the site, the dwelling appeared to house a simple Jewish family , Alexandre added, as workers carefully chipped away at mud with pickaxes to reveal stone walls.
Nazareth is the town where, Christian tradition says, Jesus grew up and where an angel told Mary she would bear the child of God. This may well have been a place that Jesus and his contemporaries were familiar with, Alexandre said. A young Jesus may have played around the house with his cousins and friends. Its a logical suggestion.
The discovery so close to Christmas has pleased local Christians. They say if the people do not speak, the stones will, said Rev Jack Karam of the Basilica of the Annunciation, the site where Christian tradition says Mary received the angels word.
The team found the remains of a wall, a hideout, a courtyard and a water system that appeared to collect water from the roof and supply it to the home. Archaeologists have also found clay and chalk vessels which may have been used by Galilean Jews of the time. The scientists concluded that a Jewish family lived there because of the chalk, which was used by Jews at the time to ensure the purity of the food and water kept in the vessels.
The discovery at this time, this period, is very interesting, especially as a Christian , Karam said. For me, it is a great gift.

Fancy the world’s most daring job.
Well, it is cleaning the world tallest towers, Burj Dubai windows. Imagine the wind speeds, the heights. Just the thought is enough to make feel vertigo.
See the window cleaners have fun doing it.
The Statue of Liberty measures 46.50 meters at its tallest.
Well, what can it measure at its tiniest? Any guesses? Will you believe, if i say a couple of millimeters? Small enough to be fitted in the eye of a needle. Check the video to believe it.
Artist Willard Wigan creates ultraprecision. This is precision work done by people and seems seems to have surpassed even machinery in the kind of details this guy is able to create.
Imagine how to handle the tools needed to create the miniatures!!!
Totally inspired by John Lautner’s villa Chemosphere, this modern version of a spaceship house is simply fantastic. The only difference is that John’s version was stationary and this one’s a trailer. The beauty of this house-on-wheels lies in the fact that its compact and yet boats of ample living quarters. You will find a bathroom, living room, bedroom, kitchen and an office in the 252° Living Area: Mobile Mini House.
The entire setup of the trailer is based on the rooms fanning out to a 252° radius. The mobile walls and floor of each unit run on rails and can be slid open easily. Just like you open one of those Japanese fans, open up this trailer from under its protective shell and set up your mobile house. It’s as simple as that!
Oh, I forgot to mention that there is a sliding screen that encapsulates the house, to secure it and keep the elements at bay.Here’s another concept that I would love to see in production! Designed by Stephanie Bellanger and friends, the Mobile Mini House is a house on wheels! Each room is separated by partitions – there’s the bathroom, living room, bedroom, kitchen and an office all in one. The rooms fan out to a 252° radius. For those of you who are worried about the weather, there’s also a sliding screen that encapsulates the house. It’s an indoor outdoor camping trailer for the modern day traveler.The spacious yet compact concept home is inspired by John Lautner’s Chemosphere house and has an ingenious expanding floor plan that features a bathroom, living room, bedroom, kitchen, and office. Bellanger’s design also has ample storage space for clothing, books, and more.
Did somebody there is not enough living space in the cities?
The photos below are the samples of the futuristic landscapes which is inspired by industrialization.
Can you print or paint on water?
When visiting Japan next time, make sure to visit the shopping mall complex in Canal City, Hataka (the old name of Fukuoka), and stop by a unique water fountain called the Space Printer.
Built by the folks at Koei Acquatec it drops water to the ground from hundreds of well timed nozzles that are controlled with amazing precision by computers.
The unique feature is that, the water creates shapes like stars, moons, dolphins and Japanese characters (spelling out Canal City) during a lights show on the way down.
The fountain also has the ability to invert the display, creating a solid wall of water and removing the required droplets to form pre-set images. This is a clever innovation over your standard shoot water up in the air water fountains.
So folks and ad guys, if you want a medium for ads display, do think of this for your clients.
Very soon coming to a mall near you, in Kuwait !!!
