Unusual Night in Nature

Unusual Night in Nature
Two French hotel/camp, Attrape Reves in Bouches-du-Rhone (near Marseille) and Sky River near Loir-et-Cher, are the places where you can sleep under the stars. Concept of sleeping in balloons are designed by French designer Pierre Stefan, wanting to create an environmentally friendly space: when a plastic bubble pack, the area remains almost intact. Balloons are small and cozy, their diameter is about four meters. Some are completely transparent, while others provide a little more privacy.

Geneva drive Animation showing a six-position external Geneva drive in operation The Geneva drive or Maltese cross is a gear mechanism that translates a continuous rotation into an intermittent rotary motion. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that reaches into a slot of the driven wheel advancing it by one step. The drive wheel also has a raised circular blocking disc that locks the driven wheel in position between steps. Background[edit] The name derives from the device's earliest application in mechanical watches, Geneva, Switzerland being an important center of watchmaking.
