“Mark my word : A combination airplane and motorcar is coming. You may smile, but it will come.” Henry Ford, 1940
Slovakian company Aeromobil made people’s dream come true and they are much closer to introduce this car to the world than anybody else. Štefan Klein, a Slovak man graduated from the University of Technology in Slovakia, has devoted 20 years of his life for working on his prototype of Aeromobil 3.0.
Aeromobil is a flying car that can use existing infrastructure already created for planes and cars. It fits in a standard parking space, it can tank at any gas station, it is fully accustomed to road traffic and it can perfectly take off and land at any airport all over the world. Amazing!
This Aeromobil is suitable for two passengers and can fly up to 430 miles on standard 91 octane gasoline. On the road wings of this flying car fold behind the cockpit, so there is no problem with parking. In the air it can reach a top speed of 124 mph, on the road it is a bit slower and can reach a top speed of 100 mph and a driving range of 300 mph.
“We want to make personal transportation exciting, more efficient and sustainable. With ever more cars on the roads and ever more crowded airports, traveling is no longer what it used to be,” Klein stated. The latest design was tested this week and it is ready for the Pioneers Festival in Vienna in Austria, held on Oct. 29, 2014.
This Aeromobil is super stylish, comfortable and combines the performance of a sports car with qualities of an “ultralight”. Now I am just curious how much this flying car will be 🙂
Hub of a number of astonishing fashion and high-tech trends such as CityCharger, New York City has once more set a new thing: the pop-up tweet shop. At the Marc Jacobs Tweet shop in SoHo at 462 West Broadway customers could pay in tweets at the check-out counter. The shop in NYC was the first one to successfully create a social buzz around fashionistas and media-savvy shoppers, followed by a Convent Garden pop-up shop in London last month.
Put up to last a couple of days the lounge-inspired pop-up shop features apart from a lounge area, photo booth, vine booth, food, drinks, free Wi-Fi, and nail bar, all accompanied by the skills of DJ Jilly Hendrix. Goodies such as mini-fragrances, clothing and accessories could be purchased and paid in form of tweets, Facebook or Instagram posts followed by the hashtag #MJDaisyChain. To enhance the social campaign MJ store is also giving handbags as rewards to best Instagram photos.
This is not the only social marketing campaign to use exquisite forms of currency in exchange for goods. McDonald’s Stockholm has also set a new trend by accepting recycled cans as payment for burgers. Linked to a more “proud” cause, McDonald’s social campaign can be said to have a deeper purpose behind it unlike MJ pop-up stores that mainly aim at creating a social buzz among their consumers and admirers.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, Stainless Steel has been a very popular finish in private and commercial kitchens. Many homes utilize Stainless Steel in appliances including the refrigerators, microwaves, ovens, etc. Now, Stainless Steel is finding its way onto more surfaces than just in appliances.
More often, home buyers will come across Stainless Steel sheets onto the walls in kitchens and other rooms. In fact, Stainless Steel has been very popular for its attractive surface. Many choose to use Stainless Steel for its easy to clean exterior and its hygienic surface. Food preparation is a lot easier with Stainless Steel as it is less likely to harbor bacteria when cleaned than other surfaces. Since its surface is highly attractive to many consumers, more and more individuals are styling their homes and business with Stainless Steel!
If you are going to use Stainless Steel to your surfaces, let Shanghai Metal Corporation teach you how!
You must close the breakers that are providing you electricity. After you turn off you’re your breakers, place an non contact electrical tester against the toggle switches. Also, place a noncontact electrical tester against any electrical outlets on the wall after that you wish to cover with Stainless Steel. The tester will light up and sound an alarm if electricity is still present. If the tester shows the sign of the presence of electricity, make sure to turn off the switches and outlets.
Clear away the screws that are holding any target wall plates to toggle the switches and electrical outlets. Afterwards, take away the wall plates from the wall. You should leave the toggle switches and electrical outlets connected to the wall.
SMC suggests to spray a grease-cutting cleaner onto your target wall. Clean the surface of the wall with a sponge, scrub brush, or towels. Remove excess cleaner from the wall with paper towels.
Utilize an 80-grit sandpaper to remove any bumps and imperfections on the wall. Keep sanding the wall until the surface of the wall is flat. This is important because the Stainless Steel sheets must adhere to the surface and sanded surface will help increase glue adhesion.
With a caulk gun, pull back the push rod above the handle. The push rod should lock in place. Make sure to add at least a 10-ounce tube of silicone adhesive caulk into the gun. When you are done, pull the trigger to secure the tube.
Use utility shears to remove the tip from the tube of caulk. If you want a larger opening on the end of the caulk tube, then cut the tip further back. Place a Phillips screwdriver into the tip and push the end of the screwdriver through the caulk tube to allow the caulk to flow from the tube.
Add a liberal amount of silicone adhesive around the perimeter of the wall. Apply more silicone in a zigzag pattern within the perimeter. Make sure you have enough tubes of silicone adhesive caulk for your wall. For reference, a 10-ounce tube of silicone adhesive caulk is necessary for every 20 linear feet of Stainless Steel.
Make sure to hold the Stainless Steel sheet at an angle. The bottom of the Stainless Steel sheet must rest against the bottom of the wall. Any cutouts in the Stainless Steel sheet should line up with any items that are permanently installed in the wall, which includes toggle switches and electrical outlets.
Slant the Stainless Steel sheet toward the wall until the whole Stainless Steel sheet is against the wall. You may slide the sheet into position once it is against the wall if it is off a bit since there is a leeway time before the adhesive sets.
Tape the Stainless Steel sheet into place with several pieces of duct tape until the adhesive has set.
Replace the electrical outlet and toggle switch covers. You can now turn on the circuit breakers.
Make sure to not touch the wall for at least 24 hours. You should leave the tape on the Stainless Steel sheets for at least a whole day. Cooler temperatures and higher humidity may increase drying times so try to adjust accordingly.
