THE COPENHAGEN WHEEL
Smart, responsive and elegant, the Copenhagen Wheel is a new emblem
for urban mobility. It transforms ordinary bicycles quickly into hybrid e-bikes that also
function as mobile sensing units. The Copenhagen Wheel allows you to capture
the energy dissipated while cycling and braking and save it for when you need
a bit of a boost. It also maps pollution levels, traffic congestion,
and road conditions in real-time.
SENSE AND SUSTAINABILITY
Controlled through your smart phone, the Copenhagen Wheel becomes
a natural extension of your everyday life. You can use your phone to unlock and
lock your bike, change gears and select how much the motor assists you.
As you cycle, the wheel’s sensing unit is also capturing your effort level and
information about your surroundings, including road conditions, carbon monoxide,
NOx, noise, ambient temperature and relative humidity. Access this data
through your phone or the web and use it to plan healthier bike routes,
to achieve your exercise goals or to meet up with friends on the go.
You can also share your data with friends, or with your city – anonymously
if you wish – thereby contributing to a fine-grained database of
environmental information from which we can all benefit.
The Copenhagen Wheel turns the bike you already own, quickly and easily into
an electric bike with regeneration and real-time environmental sensing capabilities.
The wheel harvests the energy you input while braking and cycling and stores it for
when you need a bit of a boost. At the same time, sensors in the wheel are collecting
information about air and noise pollution, congestion and road conditions.
The Copenhagen Wheel differs from other electric bikes in that all components are
elegantly packaged into one hub. There is no external wiring or bulky battery packs,
making it retrofittable into any bike. Inside the hub, we have arranged a motor,
3-speed internal hub gear, batteries, a torque sensor, GPRS and a sensor kit that
monitors CO, NOx, noise (db), relative humidity and temperature. In the future,
you will be able to spec out your wheel according to your riding habits and needs.
Live in San Francisco? Add more battery power.
Interested in real-time applications? Increase the number of sensors.
Lastly, the wheel is controlled through your Smart Phone and becomes a natural
extension of your everyday life. Simply place your phone on the handlebars, and
its Bluetooth module syncs with the Bluetooth module in the hub of the Copenhagen Wheel.
You can then use your phone and our Copenhagen Wheel Application to unlock and lock
your bike, change gears, select how much the motor assists you and for viewing
relevant real-time information.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Copenhagen Wheel was unveiled on December 15, 2009 at the COP15
United Nations Climate Conference. The project was conceived and developed
by the SENSEable City Lab for the Kobenhavns Kommune. The prototype bikes
were realizedwith the help of our technical partner Ducati Energia and funding from
the Ministry for the Environment.
“Non credo nelle epoche né nelle date. Non ci credo. Mi rifiuto di stabilire il valore di una cosa in base alla data. Non pongo limiti e niente è troppo esoterico per essere usato come ispirazione. Io voglio liberare la mia aspirazione dai confini del solito. Ma sono un razionalista… Abbiamo l’abitudine di comprare le ‘firme’ e non più le cose belle che ci piacciono. Un artista che vuole avere successo non è più un artista. È una persona che vuole avere successo. Se si adegua alle mode arriva in ritardo, perché ormai si sono adeguati tutti”
“I don’t believe in periods or in dates. I simply don’t believe in them. I refuse to determine the value of an object by its date. I don’t limit myself, and nothing is too esoteric to be used as inspiration. I want to free my inspiration from the limitations of the usual. But I am also a rationalist … We have the habit of buying ‘signatures,’ and no longer invest in beautiful things that we like. An artist who wants to be successful is no longer an artist; he is a person who wants to have success. If he conforms to fashion, he will arrive late because by now everyone has already conformed.”
Here a nice set of many different Sun from this incredible Italian Artist : Piero Fornasetti

The PC world is in turmoil. In spite of tablets, computers and even sell back to the old Mac pulling Apple accounts, far more than the iPad. So from the point of view of innovation that PC is a world that is back on the scene.
For example, Sprout, an all-in-one Windows just launched by HP that really something new. It is a 23-inch designed for creativity and developed with Intel, Microsoft and Adobe for one purpose: to find a way to do without the keyboard and mouse. The solution is a mat mat placed at the base of the PC and a projector, which instead is above.
Well, and how is it used? HP offers a new approach: the content you are working on are projected on the mat thanks to three integrated cameras. This system projects on the ‘base’ a virtual keyboard to write, but also detects the movements of our hands or a digital pen or other objects, allowing us to interact with the computer so completely different from what we are used to.
Other features: i7-4790S processor, Full HD IPS capacitive display, 8GB of RAM, Nvidia GT-745A, storage, hybrid HDD + SSD and 1 Terabyte battery 6 hours of battery life. Coming November 9 in selected US stores at a cost of $ 1899 and qualified staff to teach how to run.
go from thought to expression in an instant
From the Sprout HP website:
We believe hands can do amazing things. What will you do with yours?
Blending the physical and digital worlds that you live in, Sprout unleashes your creativity like never before.
A creativity station. A fully functioning PC. Whatever you want to call it, Sprout can do it.
reimagine what you can do
Bring ideas to life like never before. Sprout’s dual-screen multi-touch experience and capture of 3D objects means you don’t just see your idea, you can touch, move, manipulate and share it. Making your ideas real is now so easy.
I really hope i can get one soon …. I love Sprout
The plant world contains a natural army of foods that are ready to fight — infections, that is! Getting a steady supply of the following foods helps you build up immunity so that, when that cold comes for you, you may be able to block it entirely — or, at the very least, not let it affect you as much.
In addition to eating these ten foods regularly, you can use them to make home remedies at the first sign of a cold or flu!
For centuries, people around the world have turned to mushrooms for a healthy immune system. Contemporary researchers now know why. Studies show that mushrooms increase the production and activity of white blood cells, making them more aggressive. This is a good thing when you have an infection.
Shiitake, maitake, chaga, and reishi mushrooms appear to pack the biggest immunity punch. Experts recommend eating a quarter ounce to an ounce a few times a day for maximum immune benefits.
The most pungent of the plant kingdom inhabitants, garlic contains the immune-stimulating compound allicin, which promotes the activity of white blood cells to destroy cold and flu viruses. It also stimulates other immune cells, which fight viral, fungal, and bacterial infections. Garlic kills with near 100 percent effectiveness the human rhinovirus, which causes colds, common flu, and respiratory viruses.
Because allicin is released when you cut, chop, chew, or crush raw cloves, allow freshly chopped garlic to stand for 10 minutes and then cook it, sprinkle it over foods, drop it into soup, or swallow bits of garlic with some water like a pill. You can also drop a clove of garlic into some honey and swallow it immediately for a quick dose that tastes good!
Onions, like garlic, contain allicin. They also contain quercetin, a nutrient that breaks up mucus in your head and chest while boosting your immune system. Additionally, the pungency of onions increases your blood circulation and makes you sweat, which is helpful during cold weather to help prevent infections. Consuming raw onion within a few hours of the first symptoms of a cold or flu produces a strong immune effect.
Spicy, pungent, and delicious, ginger reduces fevers, soothes sore throats, and encourages coughing to remove mucus from the chest. Anti-inflammatory chemicals like shagaol and gingerol give ginger that spicy kick that stimulates blood circulation and opens your sinuses. Improved circulation means more oxygen is getting to your tissues to help remove toxins and viruses.
Research has indicated that ginger can help prevent and treat the flu. Ginger is also extremely helpful for stomachaches, nausea, and headaches.
If you’re feeling a little sickly, a homemade ginger tea is one of the best things you can drink. Slice some fresh ginger root, place it into a pot with water, and bring to a boil. Then drop in a bit of lemon juice or cayenne, which makes the tea that much more effective at nourishing and purifying your system.
The cayenne family of hot peppers (cayenne, habanero, Scotch bonnet, and bird peppers, to name a few) contains capsicum — a rich source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids, which aid your immune system in fighting colds and flus. It does this by increasing the production of white blood cells, which cleanse your cells and tissues of toxins.
Cayenne pepper is also full of beta carotene and antioxidants that support your immune system and help build healthy mucus membrane tissue that defends against viruses and bacteria. Spicy cayenne peppers raise your body’s temperature to make you sweat, increasing the activity of your immune system.
The fresher the pepper, the more effective it is. However, fresher also means spicier, so choose accordingly.
When you’re sick, add organic cayenne powder to some warm water with lemon juice for an intense immune boost.
Squash is a good source of vitamin C and carotene. The six carotenoids (out of the 600 found in nature) found most commonly in human tissue — and supplied by squash and other gourds — decrease the risk of various cancers, protect the eyes and skin from the effects of ultraviolet light, and defend against heart disease.
One of them, alpha-carotene, helps slow down the aging process. Butternut squash is the strongest source of these nutrients, but you can also try acorn, Hubbard, delicata, calabaza, and spaghetti squash.
Like other leafy greens, kale offers up a good dose of vitamin E. This immunity-boosting antioxidant is known for increasing the production of B cells, those white blood cells that kill unwanted bacteria. Whether you eat kale raw in a salad, steam it, or lightly sauté it, you’ll reap all of its wonderful benefits.
Adding a bit of citrus to your diet goes a long way toward fending off your next cold or flu. Packed with vitamin C, oranges and grapefruits help increase your body’s resistance to nasty invaders.
The best way to enjoy citrus fruits is to eat them whole. Otherwise, you can make fresh juice yourself (stay away from the premade stuff in cartons or in the freezer section at your supermarket).
Green tea is a potent source of antioxidants called polyphenols — especially catechins. Some studies have found that catechins can destroy the influenza and common cold viruses.
Sipping a hot cup of green tea when you’re feeling under the weather can really help you come alive again. Try adding some honey or lemon to kick it up a bit.
Miso soup is the plant-based version of chicken-noodle soup. It has wonderful healing properties that are amazing at boosting immunity. As a living food, miso is loaded with enzymes and healthy bacteria that help fight infection and keep your cells thriving.
All you need is one teaspoon of miso paste stirred into a mug or bowl of warm water, and you’re set. Sip this down, especially at the first sign of a cold or when you’re just feeling “off” with a stomachache, headache, or something like that. This is sure to hit the spot and make you feel good all over.
Nike Back to the Future style self-lacing shoes ‘will arrive in 2015’
The iconic shoes first appeared in Back to the Future and later went on sale for charity, but Nike has yet to confirm whether real power laces will be arriving
You might think that out of all the technological wonders featured in the Back to the Future franchise it would be the functional time machine that caused the most envy, but no, it seems that what the internet wants the most from the world of tomorrow is a pair of self-lacing trainers.
At least, this certainly seems to be the case judging by the reaction to an off-the-cuff comment made by Nike designer Tinker Hatfield. As reported by specialist site Sole Collector, Hatfield was quizzed on the topic during a press conference in New Orleans:
“Are we gonna see power laces in 2015? To that, I say YES!” said Hatfield, sparking a flurry of online speculation, but – as of the time of writing – no confirmation from Nike.
Despite this, it’s not impossible that Nike will make power laces happen next year. For a start, the timing would fit (the high-tops or Nike Mags first appeared in Back to the Future II the year 2015) and Nike even patented its own “automatic lacing system” back in 2010.
The sportswear company actually manufactured the trainers for a charity auction back in 2011. Although they lacked the crucial power laces 1,500 pairs of the trainer were auctioned with the proceeds ($6 million, an average price of $4,000 per pair) going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
Enthusiastic fans have even tried to recreate the technology, with San Francisco-based tinkerer Blake Bevin successfully funding a Kickstarter project for the shoes back in in 2010 after posting her designs on tech-orientated DIY site Instructables.
Bevin’s designs use an Arduino microcontroller and a pressure sensor in the sole to detect when the trainer is being worn before tightening the laces with a pair of servo motors. Although it’s been more than three years since Bevin’s designs were first uploaded online, a recent post from her Twitter confirms that her company is “looking to release this year”.
One way or another then it seems that power laces are coming and, as Bevin’s original Kickstarter campaign originally noted, they wouldn’t just be a vanity gadget – self-lacing shoes could also help individuals with motor disabilities. Compared to a hover board (Back to the Future’s other iconic invention) that’s both more useful and more likely to appear.
Art lovers and history will not be left high and dry this winter. Here is a list of major museums around the world to visit during the winter season. Whether you start a weekend or a month, the destinations are for all tastes: from Italy to the United States, passing through Russia, a map to navigate the beauties to be discovered scattered around the globe.
It was easy to be a little worried about David Koma’s Spring presentation, now that the Georgian designer is the artistic director of Mugler. Since that was a lifelong dream for him, one wondered if he might put his heart and soul into Mugler at the expense of his eponymous line, or whether he’d be able to multitask.
Koma’s challenge was to make sure there was a distinct separation between his Mugler collection and his own, and also to breathe new life into his body-con aesthetic. The designer uses color sparingly—he is very architecturally oriented and often sticks to black and white—so it was a welcome surprise to see shots of citron yellow in the first looks. Color was introduced with restraint: a simple strip on just one side of some shorts, a pop of it on a waistline or collar.
The body-con pieces had cutout waists, sheer panel details, and organza overlay—add to all that the asymmetrical hem, and there were a lot of ideas not seen in previous Koma collections. A supersharp dress in electric blue or pure white had geometric cutouts and bathing-suit-strap details that added interest, but the real standouts were the crystal-embedded looks with minute handwork and meticulous geometry. All in all, Koma made his point: When it comes to his own line, he is definitely not asleep at the wheel.

Some nice ideas for decorating the Christmas tree. Which color you will choose? I will choose only white decoration…. White Christmas …...I can’t wait to make all the decorations by myself…. don’t spend money but donate your money for charity…
The powerhouse celebrity family unit of Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Kayne West might have been watching Kendall Jenner walk in the spring/summer 2015 Balmain show, but it was a different pair of iconic siblings that actually inspired designer Olivier Rousteing this season.
The Jacksons, Michael on the soundtrack and Janet on the catwalk,shaped this monochromatic, ode-to-the-nineties collection.
This meant models with slicked back wet hair strutted down the runway in dramatic cut out bandeau tops that were strapped tight to the torso. They also showed up rocking graphic grid patterned high waisted pants and body con dresses that appeared to cadge in each model’s curves.
Rousteing is known for his highly structured and richly embellished rock-and-roll designs. And yes, the strong shouldered jackets did make an appearance on the catwalk. This time they came with tricky twisted bodices that left waistlines exposed.
However this season he smartly showed that he could keep his rebellious edge but still propose (slightly) more forgiving garments. One of the best of these was look 9, which paired a draped black t-shirt with a matching semi-sheer pleated maxi skirt. Also strong were the striped primary colored sleeveless suit vests cut in oversized proportions. A broad collared leather jacket cinched to the waist with a belt also expertly played with dramatic shapes.
The final outfit in the line-up really said it all about this show. The top was an easy white cotton sleeveless shell with an understated flourish of draped fabric. The bottom a pencil skirt festooned with colorful beadwork laid out in a geometric grid motif. A clash of causal and couture that resulted in one seriously bitchin’ ensemble.
After partnering with greats like Yohji Yamamoto, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, and, more recently, Pharrell Williams, you would think that Adidas has had its fill of out-of-the-box collaborations. Not so. Here, a first look at Originals by Mary Katrantzou, a Technicolor-printed offering in stores November 15.
Track shoes worn by medal winners in the 1970s and 1980s were the starting points for Katrantzou, who reworked Adidas’ iconic looks to wild effect—consider the gold hardware on a hot pink, purple, and green sneaker. But the fun doesn’t stop there: Body-hugging zip-up dresses and pullovers in neoprene and print mesh feature abstract florals, stripes, and laces. Looks like the high-end athleisure trend isn ’t going anywhere anytime soon.
