“The Dunwich Horror”, “Tintin and the Reanimator”, “The Whisperer in Darkness”, and “The Shadow Out of Time”, these are just some of the Tintin titles that may – who knows – have come forth, were the stories of the young Belgian reporter still being published.
Wandering through space without a purpose. Getting old and getting lost. That’s what interstellar space exploration might actually be like, given the time it’ll take to get anywhere… a game by Pol Clarissou.
If you’re having to write a dissertation on the design of food cans, this resource should prove useful. The cylindrical shaped cans didn’t just come along, it seems quite some thought went into their conception.
Familiarity. The original cans may have been manufactured with an arbitrary aspect ratio, but now we’ve been programmed to search for items of this shape when we shop. A soup can of the wrong shape might not attract our attention (or bizarrely might be less attractive) to shoppers. Changing a can shape at this stage (without accompanying large budget media awareness campaigns) could have a negative impact on sales.
Working with a pool of over 250 varieties of stone fruit, Van Aken developed a timeline of when each of them blossom in relationship to each other and started grafting a few onto a working tree’s root structure. Once the working tree was about two years old, Van Aken used a technique called chip grafting to add more varieties on as separate branches. This technique involves taking a sliver off a fruit tree that includes the bud, and inserting that into an incision in the working tree. It’s then taped into place, and left to sit and heal over winter. If all goes well, the branch will be pruned back to encourage it to grow as a normal branch on the working tree.
While the Kit Bike remains a concept at the moment, a bicycle, consisting of just twenty one pieces, that can be dismantled and packed away into one relatively small carry bag, may become a boon for travellers who want to move about at their own pace.
