School Bus Converted Into Versatile Mobile Home

One of the primary goals during the design phase was to develop a living space in 225sqft that is as open and un-restricting as possible… The sleeping space is comprised of two narrow beds, of equal width, on either side of the aisle. There are drawers beneath each each bed, deep storage underneath the mattresses, and built-in shelves facing the seating area. In order to accommodate varied sleeping arrangements, the port-side bed rolls into the center aisle, creating a queen-sized sleeping area, with a third mattress revealed in the vacated space. This allows for a total sleeping capacity of up to six adults.” w/ photos + video

Melchiorri’s Silk Leaf project, which he developed as part of the Royal College of Art’s Innovation Design Engineering course in collaboration with Tufts University silk lab, consists of chloroplasts suspended in a matrix made out of silk protein… “The material is extracted directly form the fibres of silk,” Melchiorri explains. “This material has an amazing property of stabilising molecules. I extracted chloroplasts from plant cells and placed them inside this silk protein. As an outcome I have the first photosynthetic material that is living and breathing as a leaf does.” w/ photos + video

Silent Party Clubbing

“Silent Disco or Headphone Party is the name for a disco, dancing with the people to the music they listen through wireless headphones. Instead of using a speaker system, music is an FM transmitter sent to the wireless headset of the participants. Looking at the scenery without headphones, you do not hear music & see people dancing in a quiet room. In general, 2 competing DJs around the listener, who may choose by selecting it on their wireless headphones what song they hear. The Silent Disco is for example at music festivals & open-air parties popular because it allows people to dance without the noise of the environment by loud music.” — epSos.de
