The first computer mouse
Each time you click your mouse, you’re paying homage to a UC Berkeley engineering alum Douglas Engelbart.  Originally patented as the “X-Y Position Indicator for a Display System,” Engelbart invented and developed the first computer mouse. (It got its nickname “mouse” due to the cord attached to the rear of the device that looked like a tail.)
Engelbart is known for giving “The Mother of All Demos" in 1968 — a live demonstration that featured almost all of the fundamental elements of modern computing: windows, hypertext, graphics, efficient navigation, command input, video conferencing and a collaborative real-time editor.

Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall | ICD/ITKE/IIGS University of Stuttgart | Via

The Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall is an architectural prototype building and a showcase for the current developments in computational design and robotic fabrication for lightweight timber construction. Funded by the European Union and the state of Baden‐Württemberg, the building is the first to have its primary structure entirely made of robotically prefabricated beech plywood plates. The newly developed timber construction offers not only innovative architectural possibilities; it is also highly resource efficient, with the load bearing plate structure being just 50mm thin. This is made possible through integrative computational design, simulation, fabrication and surveying methods.

Kailashnath Temple

What’s most amazing about the Kailashnath Temple is that it’s carved out of one single rock. Carvers started at the top and excavated downward, exhuming the temple out of the existing rock. The traditional methods were rigidly followed by the master architect, which could not have been achieved by excavating from the front.” [via]
