An SUV That Even Captain Picard Could Love? "Make it so" I've seen lots of pictures of concept car interiors over the years, but the one in the new Nissan Terranaut looks straight out of Star Trek: TNG. From the swivel chairs to the touch screen panels, you could just see Captain Picard or Lt. Commander Data four-wheeling around on some distant planet. The Terranaut has positions for a pilot, co-pilot and lab technician/scientist and serves as a mobile science laboratory. Touch pads used to open the doors electrically are covered with a tactile silicon finish while the seats, which all feature air vents in the base and backrests feature ‘breathing’ fabrics. Reflecting the sorts of samples that might be brought into the laboratory for analysis, the design team have adopted the hexagon – the geometric shape of one of the seven crystal systems – as a styling feature.

The Basic Binding of Books: A Tutorial Tutorials | About Me | Contact | Soapmaking Tutorial Page 1 of 8 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | Leave a comment! In addition to your book making materials you will need: 1) A large working area (if you don't have a large area, you will need to clean up well after each stage) 2) Both large and small binder clips (I use them gratuitously) 3) A waste paper basket close by 4) A stack of clean scrap paper 5) Pre-cut sheets of wax paper 6) A wet cloth (for wiping glue from fingers) 7) A dry cloth Start by deciding how many pages and what dimensions you wish your book to be. Clamping the spine end with large binder clips (here I use cardboard to protect the pages) and allowing to compress overnight helps with having flatter signatures for sewing. It helps to make a pattern of your page for later use in measuring and cutting board, endpages, etc. Lay one of your signatures on a blank page and trace, then cut. Perfect. Measure and cut linen tape and mull cloth for the backbone.

Walk through "Your Rainbow Panorama" in Denmark EmailEmail Now reaching the rainbow became possible with the new installation named “Your rainbow panorama” of the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The new project was opened on the 28th of May 2011 on the top of the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum in Århus, Denmark. Permanent circular vivid walkway of a 150 meters long, 3 meters wide by 3 meters high, gives a 360° colorful view of the city. Eliasson’s creation is 52 meters in diameter (approximate weight of 140 tons), mounted on the 12 columns which are resting on the steel construction on the roof level (around 100 tons). This artistic work stands over 50 meters above the street level and 3.5 meters above the renovated roof area, it is also available for recreational purposes with a spectacular city view, all interested can reach both roof terrace and panorama via stairs and elevators.

- StumbleUpon Story of handwritten fonts (or we can say only fonts) starts from very old ages, when people was just realizing the need of communication between one and other. People learned to convey their message by using signs and symbols , this process continued and entered different stages of development until the languages and letters were formed. People used to communicate through letters and telegrams, then with the advancement in technology we started using Emails with formal fonts, leaving handwritten letters behind. But now people are going back to use Handwritten fonts to give the communication more personal and informal touch . 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. le Grand Saut 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39. 40. 41. 42. 43. 45. 46. 47. 48. 49. 50. 51. 52. 53. 54. 55. 56. 57. 58. 59. 60. 61. 61. 62. 63. 65. 66. 67. 68.
