• Dissolving Origami Robot

    Isn’t that cool? I’ve found an article the other day about a robot that can fold itself like a tiny moving piece of origami. It’s only a centimeter long and controlled by magnetic fields. When finished their assigned tasks, they dissolve. One prototype robot dissolved almost entirely in acetone, another had components that were soluble […]

  • Namba Parks

    Where I live are lots of empty office buildings that are no longer in use. It’s a shame since there are many ways to reuse spaces and buildings. I’m a big fan of adaptive reuse and recycling of old buildings and or discarded materials. Roof gardens are also a great topic to write about since […]

  • Update

    I’m updating this website and since I’m busy during the day this has to be done in my spare-time, guess you know what thát means Too much to do and so little time so bear with me please… Thanks!

  • Breadcrumbs and Clouds

    Something got me thinking recently about online presence these days. It seems that most feel the urge to be part of the social networks craze. I must admit I’ve been as guilty, but to me it’s been mainly to stay updated about new internet development and changes. Social networks unfortunately have become a major part […]

  • Discrepancy

    The other day I was following an intense discussion on some geek website about the endless battle between Mac and PC users. Of course taking the mickey out of someone’s preferences is funny as hell but at times things do get old. I was tempted to jump in and have my say but I would’ve […]

  • New Pet

    Okay… One more See my other post as well: cool cartoons by Randall Munroe. Warning from the artist: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors). For those of you who haven’t seen […]

  • The Swap

    If you’d asked me six months ago if I would ever leave Movable Type as a publishing platform and swap to WordPress instead I probably would’ve laughed and said ‘no way’. I even wrote a post about it some time ago why I would never swap to WordPress. This was before I ran into problems […]

  • Sandwich

    The image below made me laugh out loud… I found it whilst browsing at XKCD a cool website: a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language… with really cool cartoons by Randall Munroe. Some Randall randomness: What does XKCD stand for? It’s not actually an acronym. It’s just a word with no phonetic pronunciation — […]

  • Steampunk Sculptures

    The wonderful sculptures of Belgian artist Stephane Halleux are remarkable to say the least. He started his career at an animation film studio first as a colorist, later as a layout artist. His first exhibitions were such a success that since 2005 he has devoted all his time to his sculptures. According to Coilhouse magazine […]

  • Charlie At The Factory

    The video below is extremely hilarious and a really cool animation *thumbs up!*… It’s a parody of the famous novel ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by one of my favourite authors Roald Dahl. The story was originally inspired by Roald Dahl’s experience of chocolate companies during his schooldays. Mr. Willy Wonka, the owner of the […]
