The Hornster, a brainchild of Yannick Read, developed by the Environmental Transport Association (ETA), was specially made to focus on the dangers faced by cyclists on the urban city roads.

 

 

The Hornster bike uses a three-bell Airchime KH3A air horn that’s used on trains. It derives all its power from a SCUBA tank placed between the handlebars and the seat. A full-sized tank rests between the cyclists legs. The reason that this could prove out to be harmful on-road is, at 178dB, it is way more louder than the Concorde superset. Anything over 140dB is enough to cause an ear damage, so it’s practically quite irresponsible to use this in a crowded street. Why then was it made you ask? Well this is what Yannick Read had to say:

He stated, “The same quietness that makes bicycles such a civilised way of getting around makes them vulnerable to inattentive motorists – the Hornster is a wake-up call for drivers who don’t pay attention to bikes.

Whether his point is justified or not, this hornster is going to pose some serious trouble to the remaining drivers.

Corning Incorporated, known famously for the Gorilla-glass technology has made yet another video called “A Day Made of Glass 2” after their last year’s video showing Corning’s interpretation of the future. If you haven’t seen the earlier video, watch it here.

 

Here’s the “A Day Made of Glass 2” video, along-with the guidance of how it works / will work in the future.

 

To watch only the video, without the guidance, watch it below :

 

So, what do you conclude ??

The fountain is built in a way that it creates an impression of water splashing under the running horses. Truly remarkable and creative !

A company called Arch Group makes portable boxes for sleeping. The company believes that there are too few facilities for resting and relaxation in modern cities. Therefore, its mission is to make urban space more comfortable for people. Sleepbox is one of the projects of the company. Sleepbox is designed to be placed in train stations, shopping centers, airports and waiting areas. People should be able to relax after long journeys or catch up with sleep in the sleepbox.

The Idea has really been liked by many people. I hope,someday this facility will become as popular and accessible as public toilets.

Tiger Stone is a company in Holland and this is how they make their roads. Didn’t know that block-stones could be laid like this. The speed is 2 meters per minute.

Here have a look :

So the next time you are in Holland, you know where you’re walking and how its made 😉
