black widow car_calpoly slo

Go Cal Poly – SLO!!  A group of mechanical engineering students at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA have developed a vehicle that can get up to 2752.3 MPG.

I’m definitely a proud Alumni!  Go Poly!

Excerpt from Inhabitat –

“The Cal Poly Supermileage Team’s wondercar, dubbed the Black Widow, has been under construction since 2005. The 96 pound car has three wheels, a drag coefficient of 0.12, a top speed of 30 MPH, and a modified 3 horsepower Honda 50cc four-stroke engine. It originally clocked in at 861 MPG and has been continuously tweaked to achieve the mileage we see today.”

Vitrahaus by architects Herzog and de Mueron.  Located in at the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany.  Designed to house Vitra’s Home Collection of furniture.  Exterior covered in charcoal stucco.

Love this project.  Very playful.  Herzog and de Mueron–always love their stuff.

yesterday’s desk view: sand art in the park

Saw this guy again in Union Square doing sand art.  Sadly I think the cops were writing him up for a ticket (shoulder of one of the cops is in the pic…haha).  Keep doing your thing sand art guy cuz we all still love it!
