Addicted to Tubes

Smile, grandpa! Here's the great, great, great ancestor of our beloved internet: a pneumatic tube system that's still in operation in Prague (more info).

"The Prague pneumatic delivering system has five main paths equipped with switches and concentrators, and 20 other direct lines. The total length of the system is 55km. It crosses the river Vltava three times. It was used to deliver packages with a weight of up to 3kg, with diameter up to 5cm and length up to 30cm, from any station to any other station by the means of the central system control room."

And here's Norman's delightfully odd design for an automobile:

Don't Trust Your Eyes

Take a look at the following images. Amazing? Yes. Remarkable? Absolutely! But they aren't what you probably think they are. Created by Kurt Wenner, these street-paintings use deceptive perspective to produce a remarkable illusion of having three dimensions. Just don't fall in!

Maybe If You Push From Your End...?

You’d think someone would have measured the size of the thing before they tried to park it:

A Footprint

"A foot of snow in Edinburgh. Nial Smith, who created the footprint in his garden, said: "I had made a sketch and I knew roughly what I wanted to do. You can see the car on the left to get an idea of the scale."


Up, Up And Away!

Here's a fun illustration at some of the successful, and just plain crazy, ways aeronautical engineers have approached the idea of vertical flight:

In The Coils of A Serpentine House

Designed by acclaimed architect Javier Senosiain, his Quetzalcoatl Nest house in Mexico is an undulating, writhing, masterpiece of ... well, 'serpentine' architecture.

Another strange architectural appearance - a "House Attack":

No, a tornado isn't responsible. This astounding piece of surreal art by Erwin Wurm is part of an installation at Vienna's Museum Moderner Kunst.

Don't you just love the Daily Mail (or Bile Duct as it's called in our house). That's not Assange's secret hideout, it's a data centre used by hundreds of organisations.
They really will print just about any old claptrap these days.
