Dan's dome homepage One of the tricky things is to get all the paperwork & contractors organized so things happen in the proper sequence. The easy (and more expensive) way to go about this is to simply hire a builder to take care of everything for you, or you can act as your own general contractor and hire all the workers yourself, or, if you're handy and have a LOT of free time, you can do all the work yourself. I opted to go the second route, and save only the dome construction and a few other easy tasks for myself. We were lucky in that we already knew, and trusted, just about everyone else we needed to finish the job.
Lumigrid: a Bicycle Light that Warns Riders of Impeding Potholes and Other Road Obstructions The majority of LED bike lights are designed to alert cars and pedestrians of your presence, not illuminate the path that lay ahead. For that you’ll need a keen sense of vision, or invest in what are generally an expensive array of LED headlamps and headlights. Nevertheless, neither of the aforementioned lights are great for seeing potholes and uneven terrain. Enter Lumigrids. Lumigrids is an LED projector system that attaches to the handlebars of the bicycle and a displays a grid that is something similar to graph paper used in high school math class. At higher speeds it’s arguable that the system wouldn’t be useful since the bicyclist wouldn’t have enough time to change direction or apply the brakes. Effectiveness aside, the Lumigrids can also be used as a traditional bike light, as the LEDs are bright enough to be seen from a distance, allowing vehicles and those on the road to see you from far away. Unfortunately, the Lumigrids is not available for purchase. Share

Guess who? Tensile structure Most tensile structures are supported by some form of compression or bending elements, such as masts (as in The O2, formerly the Millennium Dome), compression rings or beams. A tensile membrane structure is most often used as a roof, as they can economically and attractively span large distances. History This form of construction has only become more rigorously analyzed and widespread in large structures in the latter part of the twentieth century. Russian engineer Vladimir Shukhov was one of the first to develop practical calculations of stresses and deformations of tensile structures, shells and membranes. Antonio Gaudi used the concept in reverse to create a compression-only structure for the Colonia Guell Church. The concept was later championed by German architect and engineer Frei Otto, whose first use of the idea was in the construction of the West German pavilion at Expo 67 in Montreal. Steady technological progress has increased the popularity of fabric-roofed structures.
