The HAUS Bauhaus-inspired modern playhouse will ignite creativity and imagination amongst kids and adults alike.
In this round of the series, we are going to look into some of these frameworks along with some great examples of apps as well as other cool resources for the month.
In 2010, when scientists were preparing to smash the first particles together within the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), sections of the media fantasized that the EU-wide experiment might create a black hole that could swallow and destroy our planet. How on Earth, columnists fumed, could scientists justify such a dangerous indulgence in the pursuit of abstract, theoretical knowledge?
But particle accelerators are much more than enormous toys for scientists to play with. They have practical uses too, though their sheer size has, so far, prevented their widespread use. Now, as part of large-scale European collaboration, my team has published a report that explains in detail how a far smaller particle accelerator could be built – closer to the size of a large room, rather than a large city.
Stereoscopic photography is a wonderful thing. Whether you’re able to use it in serious client work or not, it’s incredibly fun. It’s something I’ve been doing occasionally for years, and even recently with digital – thanks to the Weeview SID. But there’s no experience like shooting it on film. Until you’ve developed it, there’s no real way to know if you’ve got the shot or how it’s going to look. It’s an almost magical experience.
Austin-based Mckinney York Architects has completed its second micro-house for the Community First! Village, a program by Mobile Loaves & Fishes to uplift people experiencing chronic homelessness in Austin with affordable, sustainable tiny homes.

We’re all re-thinking the way we work, where we work and how we work. Microsoft’s new Surface Duo is a premium mobile product with a very specific pitch; people who want to get things done. To that end, the Duo sports twin 5.6” screens and is designed to be used in a myriad number of ways. ‘Things are getting faster and better – that’s the nature of technology,’ says Tim Escolin, Microsoft’s director of industrial design. ‘With the Duo, we wanted to get more productivity from a two-screen device. However, we didn’t want it to feel like two phones combined. Instead, we took inspiration from a physical notebook – like a Moleskine – something you carry around and dip into.’
Getting your packaging design right is the most obvious way to stand out in a crowded marketplace. But there are many packaging types to choose from. Allow us to walk you through the different types of packaging to help you pick the right one.
The joy of coding Python should be in seeing short, concise, readable classes that express a lot of action in a small amount of clear code — not in reams of trivial code that bores the reader to death. – Guido van Rossum Python is one of the most used programming languages in the world, and that can …
