Futuristic products, as envisioned in 1944 (16 images)

0126

Featuring futuristic product designs / predictions from the Industrial Design Show in March of 1944.  It’s strange to look back at how people envisioned the future, in terms of trying to predict future technologies using the technology of the time as a guide.  Everything looks a bit George-Jetsony, and they generally overestimated how much glass would be used in vehicle designs, but really, they were halfway on the right track in terms of concepts.

How Mobile Technology is Changing World Travel

Booking a holiday in 2012 is not like it was twenty years ago. These days more and more holidaymakers are turning to their trusted smartphones to find hotels and flights. At present nearly half the population owns one of these devices which enable them to browse the internet from wherever they might be. Analysis has shown that 17% of the travellers have looked into their prospective holidays by using a Smartphone and a further 12% have downloaded a travel related app.

The proportion of travellers who have actually booked their holiday online is 3% but this looks set to rise significantly over the next 10 years. The changing pattern of travelling is clear to see. Two thirds of respondents say they are likely to research and book their future holidays online via their mobiles. It was also found that three quarters of travellers will use their phones whilst actually on holiday.

30 Jaw Dropping Infinity Pools from Around the World

An infinity edge pool also goes by the name of negative edge, zero edge, infinity pool, disappearing edge, or vanishing edge pool. Infinity pools are simply swimming pools which give the illusion that they go on into the horizon, as if they go on forever. In reality, the water flows over one or more edges creating this ‘vanishing’ effect. The infinity pool design concept is said to have originated in France, where one of the first vanishing edge designs was utilized in the “Stag Fountain” at the Palace of Versailles in the early 1600s.

Relaxing in this utter luxury is not cheap. Infinity pools are very expensive and require extensive structural, mechanical (hydraulic engineering) and architectural detailing. You will mostly run into these types of marvels at exotic resorts, exclusive estates, in advertisements and in other luxurious places. Lusting at these stunning images creates a desire for one. Below we have listed thirty jaw dropping infinity pools for your inspiration. Enjoy!

Cleverly Hilarious WTF Posters By Estudio Minga

Estudio Minga is a creative studio based in Argentina. They started a project called WTF and with gaining popularity they had to come up with WTF2 as well.  What makes this achievement even better, is that it was started just for fun. These posters are very minimal, and yet cleverly executed with funny imaginations. You can also buy these posters from their online shop for $19 each.

WTF is an expression that somehow manages to be one of the most trending topic on Twitter and in our lives as well. Most people use a question mark afterwards to get the point through. Rather than using the same term for the other ‘w’s, who, when, where, and why, it makes more sense to actually state the word and follow it with ‘tf.’ We hope you will enjoy the following illustrations and spread the word!
