Chances are, you’ve in some way meddled with any of your car’s fluid systems and, chances

Chances are, you’ve in some way meddled with any of your car’s fluid systems and, chances are, all of that’s led you to the home improvement warehouse’s plumbing aisle in search of enlightenment. At first, it all seems like a very good idea: like plumbing underneath a bathroom sink, your hatchback’s fuel, cooling and oiling systems simply displace fluid from one place to the next. Any differences between the two seem inconsequential but, as it turns out, they really aren’t. For one thing, your toilet isn’t exposed to corrosive, 200-degree Fahrenheit fluids. At least we hope it isn’t (and if it is, we recommend you stop eating that crap). And unless your throne is something special, it stays put. Neither can be said of whatever’s flowing through your engine right now. Caustic fluids, high temperatures and moving parts all make its fluid transfer systems exponentially more complex than your latrine’s. Thread sizes, thread pitches and sealing surfaces only add to the confusion. AN (Army/Navy) plumbing, as it’s commonly known, can be a complex thing, but is exactly the sort of stuff you should be considering for your car and is exactly the sort of stuff that you won’t find on the wa...

Apple Store Modernist Glass Roof and Spire Proposed for Notre Dame

The studio, Eight Inc, began working with Apple in 1999 and later built its flagship stores of white and glass spaces from 2001. Now it wants to bring the same concept to the Paris landmark gutted by fire in April. The concept of strengthened glass as an alternative for roof and associated additions comes after the French senate passed a bill stating Notre Dame must be returned to its “last known visual state.” The glass roof proposal defies that decree, noting it would include structural glass, rather than standard glass, which the designer contended had an almost “luminous” quality. “The spiritual and luminous qualities of the material allows for both the accurate representation of the form of the original design but also implies the impermanence of architecture and the impermanence of life,” reads the project description, as seen by architecture website Dezeen. French President Emmanuel Macron initially backed an “inventive” new design for the cathedral, however leading architects in charge of the restoration have since said the cathedral should be rebuilt in an identical way and French legislators agree. Here Come the Architects: Modernists Want Glass Roof, Steel Spire, or M...

An infinitely rewritable pen and notebook to be your companions for life

Roughly 10 seconds into the above video, I was a combination of curious and impressed. This is the nuka, a pencil and notepad combo that the designers claim will work forever. The pencil never finishes, and the notepad is eternally recyclable. They work in the sun, rain, snow, perhaps even underwater, and even in space! Ten seconds into the video, this sounds like borderline witchcraft… but in reality, it’s just top-notch product design and material engineering! nuka comprises of an eternal pencil, made of a specialized alloy tip that can oxidize a paper’s surface without a residue, essentially making it run forever (and not need sharpening either). While that, in itself, is pretty marvelous, it comes with nuka’s invincible notebook. The notebook is waterproof, tear-proof, and works wonderfully in conjunction with the nuka pencil. Together, you can take notes practically anywhere, anyhow. Write in the rain, in the snow, upside down, or even in a hurry. nuka’s notebook is capable of being your canvas in practically any scenario without ripping, tearing, or affecting your line-quality. What do you do when the notebook gets over? nuka also comes with a specialized eraser fluid that...

Swanky solar-powered table wirelessly charges multiple devices at once

The Ebörd is a table with a surface that can harvest sunlight and wirelessly charge devices(Credit: Proton New Energy Future) More and more phones and devices are able to be charged wirelessly these days, but that usually still requires a pad for each that takes up a power plug. Now, a Spanish start-up called Proton New Energy Future has unveiled Ebörd, a smart table that has a wireless charger built into the entire surface, allowing it to charge multiple devices at once. Better yet, it harvests energy from the Sun or even artificial light. With a dark glass top and metal frame, the Ebörd looks like any other modern Ikea-style furnishing, but there’s quite a bit of decent tech hidden under the hood. Other pieces of furniture with built-in wireless charging surfaces usually make do with one or two charging coils, meaning you have to put the device down on a certain spot. But the Ebörd packs in more than 50 coils, letting users charge up to four devices anywhere on the top. The Ebörd uses the Qi charging platform, meaning it should work with the last few generations of iPhones and Samsung Galaxies, as well as the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL and flagship phones from Sony, Nokia, ...
