Royal College of Art graduate, Elena Larriba, designed “Vycle”, a bicycle-inspired vertical transportation system that aims to disrupt the ‘elevator or stairs’ dilemma by adding a third choice to it. Elevators require a lot of energy to transfer people from one floor to another, whereas stairs are taking too much space and can be exhausting.
Of course, the creators of this project do not wish to replace neither elevators nor stairs with this invention, but rather to add an alternative way of vertical transportation similar to what regular bicycles are in relation to walking and driving a car.

Predictably, as with most major Facebook updates, there’s been a strong reaction even though the update isn’t finished rolling out yet.
SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk just gave us another look at the company’s new space suit and, as you’d expect, it looks pretty damn sci-fi.
Musk revealed the new look at the suit in an Instagram post on Friday, writing, “Astronaut spacesuit next to Crew Dragon.”

Even the most ordinary tasks can be made dramatic with an operatic chorus narrating them.
In this short film for kids aired on Japanese national TV, “Unendurable Line” features seemingly boring things such as pressing down on a spring, or stacking blocks before they fall over.
