    From Friday, the Emirates Airline's first class passengers on board the new superjumbo A380 Airbus will be able to indulge in 'shower spas'. But they will be limited to a five-minute dousing to ensure that all 14 first class passengers can enjoy the luxury. For a mere £4,737 first class passengers will be able to enjoy a five-minute shower during a flight between Heathrow and Dubai. But on the delicate matter of potentially intimate and amorous encounters, the airline is swift to point out that each shower has been designed to accommodate just one person at a time: 'They are designed for single usage' said a spokesman. First class also boasts 14 flat-bed, massage-equipped 'Private Suites' which include remote controlled doors, a work desk, an electrically controlled mini-bar and the most advanced in-flight entertainment system available to travellers. The plane will have to take on board an additional 500kg of water, an increase of some 25 percent - adding to fuel. [ link ]

    Have you remebered the Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic Mothership. Today Virgin Founder, Sir Richard Branson and SpaceShipOne designer, Burt Rutan, pulled back the hangar doors on the new WhiteKnightTwo (WK2) carrier aircraft. It is the world's largest all carbon composite aircraft. The vehicle has a maximum altitude over 50,000 ft and its U.S. coast-to-coast range will allow the spaceship to be ferried on long duration flights. Powered by four Pratt and Whitney PW308A engines. This will be scheduled once WK2 is at the appropriate stage in its extensive test program, which has already begun with ground tests; it is expected to take its first flight in the fall of 2008. The flight test program will be comprehensive even before SpaceShipTwo is carried as a payload for the first time in 2009.

    If will you consider Shipping Containers to build your house, It looks no bad. An outside-the-box idea has some architects and home-buyers turning to inside-the-box eco-friendly, affordable housing that uses as building blocks the 8-by-40-foot steel containers often left vacant at seaports. The homes, which use anywhere from four to eight containers, can include add-ons such as solar panels, green roofs, radiant heating and other environmentally friendly or energy efficient features, DeMaria says. And I have a good reason, the house will be earthquake resistance. [ link ]

    The ICT Graphics Lab at USC has created a low-cost volumetric 3-D display that brings every kid's hologram dreams closer to reality. The system works by projecting high-speed video onto a rapidly spinning mirror. As the mirror turns, it reflects a different and accurate image to each potential viewer. Our rendering algorithm can recreate both virtual and real scenes with correct occlusion, horizontal and vertical perspective, and shading. When projecting video frames into a rapidly spinning mirror, close to 5,000 individual images are reflected every second within the surface area and come together to create a real-space three-dimensional object. Check out see the video.
