The Old Town Hall with the famous Prague Astronomical Clock. The winding lanes of the Jewish Quarter, which you know from the novels of Franz Kafka, steeped in the legend of the Golem. Cafes enticing you to come and have a seat, boutiques and sight-seeing cruises on the Vltava. The Gothic Charles Bridge and Church of St. Nicholas in the Lesser Town, the most beautiful Baroque church in Prague. The Palace Gardens set away from the bustle of the city, Petřín with a lookout tower reminiscent of a small Eiffel Tower and Prague Castle … Each of Prague’s districts has its own characteristic atmosphere and unique charm. Prague presents itself to you as a changeable city, which likes to alternate styles: it is romantic and successful, ancient and modern, but above all it is a city that is cosmopolitan through and through, and is used to welcoming foreigners. It is time to get acquainted.

Prague (Praha in Czech) was once the seat of a mighty empire, the ancient capital of Charles IV’s Bohemian Kingdom. The city has played a pivotal role in Central Europe since the Middle Ages.
The epic history of Prague has produced a beautiful city, full of stunning buildings and majestic squares.
Tourism has driven the regeneration of Prague, transforming run down buildings into fine restaurants, vibrant bars and stylish hotels.
Prague Tourism Fact: In 1992 the historical centre of Prague, all 866 hectares, was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.

Prague has a compact city centre. From Wenceslas Square on one side to Prague Castle on the other is just a 25-30 minutes stroll (walking via the Old Town, across Charles Bridge and through the Lesser Town).
With many of the finest areas also pedestrianised, the city is effectively an open air museum, and the sights & attractions therefore are best explored on foot.
Opera and classical concerts are a definite highlight of Prague, with performances held all year round in magnificent opera houses and a range of stunning concert halls and historic churches.
The black light theatre shows are also unique.

Prague restaurants enjoy a reputation for serving good, often excellent cuisine, and many offer the opportunity to dine in lovely settings; these range from intimate cellar restaurants to rooftop restaurants with views over the city.
For refreshment at any time of the day, the world famous Czech beer is deeply embedded in the national physique and is enthusiastically consumed in cafés and bars all over the city; the Czechs are the largest consumers of beer per capita in the world!
Another well-known export of the Czech Republic is Bohemia Crystal. Visitors can purchase the finest glass products in shops in Prague or go on a tour to a glass factory, such as to Moser Glass, to see it being made.

Praha je nejen kouzelným městem mostů, chrámů, pozlacených věží a kopulí kostelů, které se zhlížejí již více než deset století v hladině řeky Vltavy,ale i moderní metropolí.
Praha je také městem různých architektonických stylů a metropolí plnou romantických uliček či stavitelských pokladů v historickém centru.
Avšak Praha je také městem zeleně. Například na svazích pod Pražským hradem je dodnes patrná snaha barokního stavitelství velkoryse spojovat budování paláců se zřizováním zahrad plných pavilonů, besídek a altánů.
Tvář Prahy dokresluje patnáct velkých mostů. Čtrnáct z nich se klene přes řeku Vltavu, Nuselský most je doširoka rozkročen přes Nuselské údolí.
V české metropoli se nachází i nebývalé množství divadel, koncertních sálů, výstavních prostor, muzeí a galerií.
Ne nadarmo se říká, že Praha je tak různorodá, jak si jen člověk může přát. A každému příchozímu ukáže jednu ze svých kouzelných tváři.

Using the power of engineering and brilliant inventions to save lives!!! Great times collab-ing with Bill and Melinda Gates! You should check out the Gates Annual Letter here: http://b-gat.es/2lhhtmJ

Pre-order a paper microscope here- https://www.foldscope.com/order

Read the published paper on the paper centrifuge, its cool- http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016…

Summary: I met with Manu Prakash from Stanford to talk about 2 of his labs’ inventions the Foldscope and the Paperfuge. Combined these cost only 68 cents and they can be used to diagnose Malaria. Both of these are examples not only of simple, brilliant design, but of how engineering is used to make a positive dent in the world.

In this hand drawn animation a line is being extrapolated through a grid. When the line surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings. Beyond each boundary the extrapolation of movement is causing deformation in a systematic but speculative way.

This work was created with support from ”Animation Artist in Residence Tokyo 2016” part of the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan (Bunka-cho) ”Project to invite overseas creators of media arts 2016” and the Mondriaan Fund.

Rocket Powered Fidget Spinner

By: TheBackyardScientist

Originally Published on May 30, 2017

Ok thats it, Fidget Spinner trend is over, cause this is the best one ever!! 😉 I built a custom fidget spinner out of 1/4in aluminum plate and strapped 3 E sized rocket engines.

Really, I just wanted to do this. I saw Stephens video and needed answers. Plus, this gave me an excuse to buy a Plasma Cutter ive been eyeballing for yearssss. (dont tell sandra I could have made this with a jigsaw..)

The spinner has a 6 inch radius, so it travels ~37 inches to make a full circle. Its spinning 88 times per second (5200 per minute), so that means the tip is traveling 276 feet per second, or 188.182 MPH. so yeah, 1000mph fidget spinner is pretty much impossible… Who will accept my challenge?

Road Safety / The Virtual Crash Billboard / Serviplan France

By: Serviceplan France

Originally published on Apr 11, 2017

LA SECURITE ROUTIERE D’ILE DE FRANCE AND SERVICEPLAN GIVE PEDESTRIANS QUITE A SHOCK… FOR THEIR OWN PROTECTION

Serviceplan held an unprecedented field operation on 22nd March in Paris to raise awareness about the dangers of being a careless pedestrian, which results in 4,500 victims each year in Ile-de-France.

The idea behind the operation was to display a specially designed interactive digital billboard near a busy pelican crossing. Equipped with a movement detector, speaker, and camera, the smart billboard made the sound of squealing tyres whenever a pedestrian attempted to cross the road while the “red man” was displayed.

The frightened faces of the disobedient pedestrians were projected directly onto the billboard. Their faces were then featured on the road safety billboards, and their photographs are shown alongside the caption: “Don’t look death in the face. Check the lights and cross safely”.

The digital video and posters, created under real-life conditions, will be used as part of the forthcoming “Quinzaine Régionale des Usagers Vulnérables” (15-28 May 2017) (train station billboards, Facebook campaign, etc.)
