Giant Military Blimps The blip age may not have died with the destruction of the Hindenburg 70 years ago. NASA as well as a partnership between Canadian and UK companies could see the return of massive Airships to the skies. Credit: Hybrid Air Vehicles Canada’s Discovery Air and the UK’s Hybrid Air Vehicles plan to launch about 45 state-of-the-art Airship Hybrids in the next decade. The companies say that with climate change traditional means of transporting cargo by sea and road are becoming more expensive and less reliable, and this is where the Airships come in. This generation of Airship goes beyond the flimsy and volatile blips which crossed the Atlantic in the years before The Second World War. The ships will be 110 meters long (360 feet), which is larger than a Manhattan city block and can fly as high as 3 km (9,800 feet). Meanwhile Nasa’s Ames Research Center is developing its own Airship prototype, called the Aeros Pelican, which could be used to transport cargo or military hardware. Via New Scientist

A Collection of Printable Sketch Templates and Sketch Books for Wireframing | At the beginning of a web (or application) development project I always create the sketches first. While sketching can be done on a blank paper, it’s much better to use a sketch template. For me that is the best and most productive way to work on and improve my ideas before application development begins (and things get more complicated :-)). This way I won’t pay too much attention to some details that should be taken care of later, but stay focused on general layout and functionality. Below you will find more than 20 resources that you can use in sketching phase of application development. If you have some additional resources to share, please leave a comment so I can add them to the list. And, of course, don’t forget to share your wireframes on I ♥ wireframes :-) Printable sketch templates for websites These are some pretty good, printable sketch templates for website design.
