"For such a rah-rah event meant to get developers excited to start building for Windows 8, Ballmer and the rest of the Microsoft team spent very little time talking about or showing off the Surface tablet, arguably Microsoft’s most exciting product. The tablet is due to launch at midnight on Oct. 26, at the same time as Windows 8. Yet the company has not let people have much hands-on time with the Surface and its innovative Touch Cover."

Kasper Strömman is at it again. What a wonderful concept for a children’s book. Those colours Those animals!
The book tells the story of a hospital for animals run by animals – but it’s the illustrations that really makes this…

The Boston Dynamics Cheetah just clocked a 28.3 miles per hour sprint on a treadmill, and it’s heading outdoors soon. At that speed, it could edge out the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt in a dead sprint. (Bolt peaked at 27.78 miles per hour in his world record setting 100 meter dash back in 2009.)

How do you build the new one-design Volvo Ocean Race monohull? You start with a hull. Yet, you need a mould to build that hull. And you need a plug to build that mould.
Landscaped with tall trees and bushes, the long facade is constructed out of perforated metal panels to provide privacy from the street level. These pieces can be opened to reveal the interior bedrooms. Large glass sliding doors are integrated into the corridor of the space transforming the volume into a pavilion completely exposed to nature. The other levels of the building sit on a stone base which is terraced into the playing grounds.
Artists Julian Charriere and Julius von Bismarck devised a rooftop pigeon-painting apparatus to spruce up some of Venice’s flying verman. The bird flies into the apparatus grey and drab-looking, then it is sent down a conveyer belt and automatically airbrushed with vibrantly-colored spray paint, before it’s sent back out into the world looking more exotic parrot than common city pigeon.

500,000 volt line opened under load:
This is the 500 kV Eldorado Substation near Boulder City, Nevada. It shows a three-phase motorized air disconnect switcher attempting to open high voltage being supplied to a large three phase shunt line reactor.
Not looking at Savonlinna Opera Festival.
Not looking at Musiikkitalo opening.
Not looking at Sofi Oksanen’s movie premier.
Looking at actual work related stuff just like he is supposed to.
Very interesting blog post by Sebastian. That video is pretty damn interesting to see.
