In The Dark Restaurant in London

Dans Le Noir restaurant in London employs blind waiters who lead customers to and through the pitch-black dining experience. The original “dining in the dark” experience, this Paris-based chain has locations in London, Barcelona, Kiev and New York City. The goal is to heighten the dining experience by forcing the diner to rely mainly on smell and taste rather than sight (or maybe it’s just an excuse to get out of fancy plating? Don’t you think so ūüôā ?) Would you be down to eat a meal in the dark? Let us know in the comments.

Ice Restaurant in Dubai

Chillout is the first ice lounge in the Middle East where everything from decoration, furniture and teacups is made from ice.

Ninja Restaurant in New York

The only restaurant in the world where Ninjas serve you. Slammed for its over-the-top hokiness by critics, this TriBeCa restaurant remains popular with diners for its “ninja servers” who perform magic while you eat. The restaurant itself is themed as a “medieval Japanese village,” and you might feel like you’re eating in the middle of a Mortal Kombat live-action show. Promise: you’ve never eaten anywhere like this before.

Greenhouse Restaurant in Amsterdam

De Kas restaurant in Amsterdam, Netherlands is located in a greenhouse, where they grow their own vegetables.

Prison Restaurant in Tokyo

Alcatraz is a prison themed restaurant in Tokyo, Japan. The patrons are escorted to their ‚Äúcells‚ÄĚ before they are served cocktails named ‚ÄúLethal Injection‚ÄĚ.

Underwater Restaurant in Maldives

This underwater eatery in the Maldives, off the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, serves its diners 15 feet below sea level. Diners enter via a long dock that leads into a hut and then descend a staircase leading to a small dining room. For those who’d like to spend as much time observing sea life as they do eating it, this haunt is a must-visit.

Treehouse Restaurant in New Zealand

This unusual restaurant in Auckland, New Zealand was designed by Peter Eising and Lucy Gauntlett from Pacific Environments Architects.

Mars 2112 in NYC

A destination for tourists, particularly ones with small children, this space-themed eatery in Times Square is where you should head for simulated spaceship rides and staff in alien costumes dancing “the robot.” Don’t bank on the food being edible (on this planet anyway), but expect a cover charge and some otherworldly antics to round out your dining experience.

Schwerelos & Zeitlos, Germany

If you’re ever on the outskirts of Hamburg, Germany, you should definitely swing by this bizarro eatery where diners order food on touch-screens, and your order arrives in a box via roller coaster-like tracks.

Other than the gimmick, we’re not quite sure it’s worth the plane ticket, although rumor has it that the food is actually pretty decent. However, those who love being waited on should probably stay away – there are no servers and you have to set the table yourself.

Orbit, a reason for men to interest thereselves to laundry :

This is it, the future is coming right in our houses… This washing machine is a new concept by a french designer Elie Ahovi for Electrolux, and may be available in 2050… Tom Cruise and Will Smith beware ! You will have to use these machines in your next movies !

Orbit, a reason for men to interest thereselves to laundry

Orbit, futuristic design of an electrolux washing machine.

Orbit uses neither water or soap in order to wash clothes : the machine is round-shaped, a magnetised circle and a central “bubble”. The spherical drum is composed of unbreakable glass and ice carbon which cleans all clothes inside. The magnets all around the structure will act like a normal drum, turning the sphere around and around but without touching the structure. The spherical drum will float like a cloud by electromagnetic impulsions; this procedure will also make electricity by induction, making this incredible washing machine autosufficient.

Zetra: a car able to escape natural disasters.

Zetra

Zetra Extreme Weather Vehicle: this is surely the next-generation car, after the electric car. Still in a concept phase (designer: Adis Sabic) this vehicle can evacuate a family of 4 to 5 persons when a natural catastrophe is approaching. Zetra can absorb many shocks like rocks, road signs, and even other vehicles thanks to a certain kind of absorbent gel and a structure in polycarbonate. Moreover, interior is on suspensions, in order to increase the shock absorption effect.

Zetra is also covered by glass, which makes it totally watertight. However, no information on the air renewal, and is realizable in more than 15 years.

Windows 8 : victim of his boot-speed !

In his last review, Microsoft affirmed that his Operating System boots too quickly… It’s not really a problem for everyday user, which will be surprised and impressed that his computer boots in an average of 2 seconds on an SSD hard drive (12 seconds on a mechanic hard drive). However, the same user, who now wants too boot the safe mode, he will also observe that clicking on the “F2” button is much, much harder than before. Therefore, all the concept is being rebuilt in Microsoft’s labs, in order to prevent these problems.

Microsoft’s potential boot menu

Microsoft also declared that they had many options to improve this issue : they make a boot menu, or they decrease the fast boot. Still don’t know which one is better though, but this is quite a good news anyway that microsoft’s new operating system will be efficient, and maybe entirely reconcile users with the firm back from the Vista fail.

KegDroid, a beer tap under Android:

May 2012 is definitely full of surprises… Blizzard fans are behind their screens playing the much waited Diablo 3, meanwhile Android and beer fans will be astonished by this: Paul Carff designed an Android beer tap. The name of this prototype is KegDroid (called Betsy sometimes); its physical appearance is the famous BugDroid. The particularity of the machine is not only the design, it is also the Motorola Xoom tablet who is incorporated (it can be removed for another tablet if wanted) and an Arduino system inside the machine in order to pump it up (the beer of course). However, the only way of payment is by an NFC chip: we can believe this is the beginning of Google’s marketing for businesses in order to introduce his new NFC application (Google Wallet).

Moreover, the application is connected to your Google + account, and here is a video showing how works the whole system!

My House, my Rules, my Pleasure!

My house

My house

As so well said it Donatella Versace in its short-lived advertising campaign for H&M, our place of life has to be a house of pleasure in which only our laws and our envy count!It is for that reason that it is necessary to have furniture that looks like us in all the rooms of our housing environment! Indeed, after the work, the exits and the others: our house or our apartment has to be the place or we have to take refuge after the attacks of the outside world!  If this place adorned us too foreign we shall have no same pleasure to live there!Read, please this article and be attentive: it will give you keys to realize a perfect inside and which looks like you!For me there are two types of environment of living: a simple but design house or an eccentric and a design house!As you see the importance of design is important for you but, this aspect of house will soon be important for you!Usually people give a posh aspect to design houses and considerate that this made for riche people.There people go to wrong point! For my part, as a non rich person I considered design like something very beautiful and pure capable to give a natural aspect to every house!That’s why I divided the design aspect in two categories:  simple and eccentric houses!In conclusion: simple is furniture that every people can buy: in contrary, eccentric furniture created by fashion designers in order to touch a certain kind of people.In the two cases, the most part of theses furniture are  so amazing! So it’s possible to have fine furniture if we have much money or not: everybody deserves a beautiful house were to live!

Ikea

Ikea

First, there is simple design which is the type of design that everyone can have access! Furniture in this case is very originals and fine! The advantage of this aspect of design is that people can have fine furniture without spend so much money! This aspect of furniture is represented by the Swedish furniture company Ikea! Ikea is the first and the only one company according to me who is capable to provide fine furniture and not too much expensive at the same time! Until their creation their evolution is bigger and bigger in Sweden and in other places of the planet! Ikea is one of the bigger names of furniture Company even if it’s not too much expensive! In fact: they create a unique concept which is: furniture not too much expensive with a good quality. For my part, my house is full of Ikea furniture! I find it fine and accessible to everyone! At the same time the Ikea is capable to propose new furniture and original designs every year! That’s why, I really like this brand, and I never stopped to like it!

To finish, furniture can be as a masterpiece. This aspect of houses is represented buy the creations of many fashion designers who propose to us eccentric but some originals furniture! This new aspect of house living is represented by some fashion designers like: Jean Jacques de Castelbajac who is the idol of many fashionistas in the world for celebrities and anonymous! In fact this kind of furniture is unique and people keep it like something precious! That’s why fashion designers want because they want to create something unique that can be use for many years! There is an image of furniture on the bottom created by the fashion designer Jean Jacques de Castelbaljac: what do think about that?

Office Interior design (part 1- Classical Office Interior design)

Modern office interior today universally determined not only success, but also it’s an image element and face of company‚Äôs activities. Regardless of how designers are developing ideas for new offices, a typical image of the office remains unchanged. A complex of office equipment must be functional, comfortable, fits to company’s image and be perfect for the people working in.

If we look at the interior design office’s history, we always can find more signs of the spirit of the epoch that in home interior design. Currently, the office furnishings often become a model for homes¬†install. And it’s not a coincidence: communication line between home and office changed a lot. People spend a lot of time in the offices and it’s important to make sure that they feel well. Office becomes not only more functional, but also happier place to work.

You don’t need to be a design specialist to understand that the small office and a solid bank office must be different. The most common criteria here is the emotional expression in every interior element. The banks, lawyers and notary’s offices, high-level offices are examples of activities where conservatism in the office design is recommended. It is here that the whole glory can lead to the famous imperial style – classicism – with purity of lines, smooth transitions and expensive materials. Here isn’t a lot of decor. Most used materials are heraldry, copper, bronze, silver – it shows the honor and glory. Classicism option may be easier or strong English style. Tradition of this style is inviolable, but the rugged oak panels can hide the new server, and on the traditional green table can stand modern computer system.
