Passerelle Geninasca Delefortrie Architectes

"When a place speaks, the most constructive reaction is to listen to it rather than to converse with it. The crossing of the Areuse at a precise point of the gauge was the demand. The answer is this footbridge, an organic structure, ensuring a better echo with the site and the river. The objective power of this artefact holds in its ability the power to blend in perfectly with the site and get clearly noticed. There is no submission to the place but just respect.”

Pictured above is the world’s largest indoor farm illuminated by LEDs, which opened this month in Japan. Inside, 18 cultivation racks reach 15 levels high, and are outfitted with 17,500 GE LED light fixtures developed specifically for this facility. The indoor farm can grow lettuce two-and-a-half times faster than an outdoor farm, and is already producing 10,000 heads of it per day. Read more about this breakthrough in modern farming at GE Reports.   

Can you imagine showing this to a farmer who was alive and planting just 50 years ago? They’d think we were space aliens.

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.
