How New York is designing the perfect subway car interior

6239017125_0382ec4f27_b_large

New york city transit authorities have come up with what they think is the perfect automobile interior. In the winter season of 2011-2012, analysts rode the New york city City metro system to monitor where travellers sat and stood, also studying the length of time they did so. Unsurprisingly, New Yorkers were delighted to sit or stand alone, preferring to congregate near the doors in the middle of the automobile, even if there were seats readily available. Wired takes a look at the brand-new subway vehicle design– which suggests using asymmetrical door positionings to lure cyclists far from the doors and removing the middle seats– which mimic NYC subway automobile designs of old (pictured above).

Clever: TARDIS Dress With Larger Painted Interior

tardis-dress-with-interior.jpg

This is cosplayer Sasha Trabane sporting a TARDIS dress with the TARDIS interior cleverly painted by Andy Coyle in between the pleats. Is that the correct terminology — pleats? Despite what I may have lead you to believe in the past, I’m not actually an expert on women’s fashion. Shocking, I know, it’s one of the very few categories I couldn’t run in Jeopardy. I’m joking, total fashionista over here. I’ll prove it — you lift your skirt and I’ll correctly identify the cut of underwear you’re wearing. “Nice try, pervert.” Dammit! A kid on the bus told me that would work.

Thanks to PYY, who knows I really only learned what the difference is between a dress and a skirt a few years ago.

Augmented Reality TARDIS With Spacious Interior

augmented-reality-tardis.jpg

This is a little augmented reality TARDIS developed by Greg Kumparak. When one side is seen with a smartphone, you could see a 3D design of the large TARDIS interior inside. Pretty neat. Advises me of the moment my buddies and I tried to see exactly how many of us might fit inside a phone booth. Unfortunately, rather of getting inside, the last man just farted into the booth and then held the door closed. I seriously saw my life pass before my eyes. SPOILER: game and loneliness.

Struck the jump for a video clip trial.

Can you give me a list of notable/famous interior designers?

Question by Mandy C: Can you give me a list of notable/famous interior designers?
I want a list of interior designers, and if possible some information on them. Please provide any websites.

Answer by scented08
Jean Michel Frank

Salvador Dali’s close friendship with the famous interior designer Jean Michel Frank, a leading light of 1930s Paris, led to several joint projects….

www.home-improvement-decorating.com/style/FamousNames.html

Jean-Henri Jansen (1854-1928)

Dutch designer, Jean-Henri Jansen, launched one of the first ever international interior design companies ‘Maison Jansen’ (House of Jansen) in 1880, which became renowned for designing and creating exceptionally beautiful and high quality furniture which would be utilized in a multitude of interior decoration projects. House of Jansen opened branches in 8 of the major cities of the world. Jansen worked closely with the talented interior designer Stephane Boudin whom he made director of the company. The clients of House of Jansen included Royalty and the rich and famous.

Elsie de Wolfe (1865-1950)

The first lady of interior decoration, Elsie de Wolfe considered herself an ‘ugly child’. This Victorian stage actress was a rebel of her times and was credited by many to be the inventor of the modern profession of interior design, even though there were already established interior designers in her time. Elsie disliked Victorian tastes altogether, her designs were therefore generally made up of light and bright colors, contrary to the drab and gloomy Victorian décor coupled with unnecessary excesses such as heavy velvet draperies. This was a pioneering departure from the contemporary designs of the time. Elsie’s influence continues to be felt in the modern world of interior design.

Ogden Codman (1863-1951)

American interior decorator and architect, Ogden Codman spent his childhood in his birthplace of Boston before heading to France in his youth for a period of time. Codman had two uncles who influenced him tremendously – architect John Hubbard and decorator Richard Ogden. Some of Ogden Codman’s works include Edith Wharton’s Newport home, Land’s End, the Rockefeller family estate of New York client John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and the Newport summer home of Cornelius Vanderbilt II. Along with novelist Edith Wharton, Codman co-authored a guidepost of American interior design, ‘The Decoration of Houses’ in 1897.

Frances Elkins (1888-1953)

Born in Milwaukee, Frances Adler Elkins was one of the most prominent interior decorator and designer of the previous century. Sister of the famed Chicago architect David Adler, Elkins was known for her futuristic designs that brought together different styles and elements from various periods. They included country French styles, chinoiserie and art deco. The furnishings featured in her designs included designers such as Jean-Michel Frank and Alberto Giacometti. The career of Elkins that spanned over three decades is glittered with many high profile commissions in Hawaii, the Midwest and northern and southern California, none more interesting than the restoration of the 1830s structure, Casa Amesti in Monterrey, California.

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959)

Frank Lloyd Wright was an interior designer and architect whose career included more than 1000 projects, 500 of them that have been complete. Wright was known for his promotion of organic architecture, an example of which is Fallingwater. The Robie House is an example of Wright’s leadership of the Prairie School architectural movement, while the Rosenbaum House depicts Wright’s Usonian home concept. Wright also had refreshing ideas for every kind of building, be it church, office, school, hotel or museum. Along with excellent architectural renderings, Wright also designed much of the interiors of his buildings including the Décor, layout and furniture.

You Magnificent Bastard: Madman Building Full-Scale Millennium Falcon Replica (Complete With Interior!)

full-falcon.jpg

Chis Lee is man. In fact, a crazy person. A crazy person with a dream– to build a full-size Millennium Falcon reproduction over the next 5-7 years. He intends to build the model complete with correctly scaled interior, then put it on show outside where it should be noticeable on Google maps and potentially score him some hot room alien women. I’m joking, I think he’s married. For just how much longer remains to be seen.

Making use of the DK Ultimate Collection blueprints as our overview, we have computed the last outer dimensions of the structure. The DK plans use the same total size as the Robert Brown estimation. From there, we reach:

Length: 114 feet
Beam (docking ring to docking ring): 81.485 feet
Height to top of body (not counting quad-laser turret): 24.878 feet
Height to top of dish: 30.889 feet
Clearance: ground to landing gear bay level: 7.779 feet
Clearance: ground to outside bottom of cockpit tube: 13.081 feet

So far Chris has actually got the cockpit console near finished and an exterior quad-gun completed, and … that’s about it. I’m not sure if he’s still planning on completing in the next 5 to seven years, however I certainly hope so due to the fact that I have every objective of commandeering that vessel and making it my very own exclusive clubhouse. \* knock on landing bay door \* WHAT ‘S THE PASSWORD? “Han Solo sensuous lips.” \* opening door \* Hurry up and get in right here.

Hit the jump for a bunch of makings of exactly what the completed thing should look like, along with the pieces Chris has actually finished up until now. Make sure to look at the formal site for recurring progression.

Google drops cloud computing lawsuit against US Department of the Interior

Last year, Google filed a lawsuit against the US Department of the Interior, on allegations that the government unfairly awarded a $ 59 million cloud computing contract to Microsoft without conducting a sufficiently competitive auction. Big G won an injunction against the department in January, effectively putting the contract on hold, and it looked as if the company would prevail, with Judge Susan Braden recently declaring that there was a “justifiable basis” for dispute. Last week, however, Google decided to drop the suit altogether, after filing a motion in the US Court of Federal Claims. “Based on the defendant’s agreement to update its market research and then conduct a procurement in a manner that will not preclude plaintiffs from fairly competing, plaintiffs respectfully move for dismissal of this action without prejudice,” the company’s attorney wrote in the motion, filed on Thursday. Federal lawyers, however, responded by claiming that the two sides have not reached an agreement, while confirming that it had no problem with Google’s decision to cease litigation. It remains to be seen whether the two sides have truly reached an agreement, or whether the litigation may wear on, but we’ll keep you abreast of any future developments.

Thermaltake Level 10 GT modded to the high heavens, shows off spacious interior (hands-on)

We’ll readily admit that Thermaltake’s Level 10 GT case isn’t for everyone. Its exeskeleton-emulating protrusions don’t exactly blend in well with living room decors, and the company seems to like it that way. Computex 2011 has been the victim host to a whole bevy of customized Level 10 GTs, which exhibit a love for all colors in the rainbow and a fascination with the humble LED light. Underneath the aesthetic excesses, however, you’ll find a practical and very roomy case that’ll happily serve as the fashion-challenged home to your next super rig. 200mm fans spin almost inaudibly, individual hard drive enclosures make hot-swapping storage a doddle, and as you’ll see in the gallery below, all the mods feature retractable headphone hangers. What will they think of next?
