One Step Closer To Our Doom — Amazing Robots Unveiled At Tech Conference — Introducing “Geminoid F”

Sunday, December 6th, 2015

We create movies that foreshadow our doom at the hands of robots, but that doesn’t stop us from continuing to push technology into that direction. At a tech conference in Beijing recently, there were many amazing robots on display that do a variety of functions, but one was probably a step closer to our doom than the “Geminoid F.” A female life-like robot that can interact with you. Might be time to go off the grid. (I’m joking.)

This is the most creepily lifelike robot we've ever seen.

The Future Is Now, Forested Tower “La Tour des Cedres” Coming Soon to Switzerland

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Saw this over at Discovery.com today, the Swiss are building a crazy mixed residential and retail building that will also be a vertical forest too. When one pictures a future’esque world in a sci-fi story, one might picture the design for this 26-story structure called, La Tour des Cedres (or Cedar Trees Tower). Set to begin construction in 2017 — the building will be found in Lausanne, Switzerland — “will also incorporate an array of sustainable energy technologies, including a rainwater collection system, solar panels and ground source heat pumps.” This really looks amazing and it something I would expect no less from the Swiss in design. I do hope it does become a reality and is the inspiration and direction for much more to come.
