Hermitage Plaza

Foster + Partners released their first video scheme for the Hermitage Plaza in La Defence, Paris. Dripping in class futuristic skyscrapers gleam over the Parisian skyline. Imposing yet necessary they give Paris a much-needed modern feel.  The two towers will be the tallest mixed-use towers in Western Europe at a monumental 323 meters (1,060 ft). The buildings will likely be completed by 2016. Costing over €2,500,000,000 this modern wonder will have 93 floors, 534 apartments, 18 levels of offices, 201 hotel rooms along with other luxuries like cafes, restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries.

Spout

“Spout” is a concept for minimalist bathroom basin design that merges technology and style. The user simply places their hands in the bowl to activate the water with the desired temperature set via a small dial. There is also a manual override button housed in the centre of the dial that can be pushed for continuous water if you would like to fill the sink.

Apple posts iOS 4.2 beta for iOS

Apple today released a beta version of iOS 4.2 to developers that adds support for AirPrint, its new name for the wireless printing feature unveiled with iOS 4.2 at the start of the month. The feature finds any printers connected to the local Wi-Fi network and, when supported, prints without needing any special setup. The approach also allows for printing from a printer shared from a Mac or Windows computer.

AirPrint will work with any iOS device that already supports iOS 4 and is still slated to arrive in November.

THE VERY LIGHT CAR

The biggest winner in the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE competition is not an electric car, but a car that weighs less than 1,000 pounds and is powered by an internal combustion engine. The car is known as the Very Light Car #98, and it won the $5 million prize in the “mainstream” category, which required cars to seat four people, run on four wheels and have a driving range of at least 200 miles. It was built by a team known as Edison 2, led by a German-born entrepreneur named Oliver Kuttner and based in Charlottesville, Va.
