Kia Cub Concept Officially Beats the Dead Horse of "Four-Door Coupes" in

Paris Concept Bridge Has Three Massive Trampolines

An architectural firm proposes a new buoy and trampoline bridge over the Seine river in Paris, France. Few cities can claim to have richer architecture than Paris. A new design proposal dubbed ‘A Bridge in Paris’ by the architectural firm AZC could certainly add a unique flair to the city. Essentially it’ll be a giant, inflatable structure with multiple trampolines that cross the famous Seine River. No doubt, pedestrians would have a blast crossing the bridge. AZC’s website states “It appears to us that Paris has the bridges necessary for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic across its waterways. Our intention is to invite its visitors and inhabitants to engage on a newer and more playful path.” The design is composed of three rings, stretching 30 meters in diameter, the middle of each ring contains a massive trampoline. Described as ‘floating buoys’, the outer rings are composed of PVC membrane and all three are bound together by a cord. The circular outskirts allow for an arch-like structure, which would appear to allow boats to pass underneath. It’s not yet known whether the project will become a reality. How do you like the idea?

Blogger Amy Tenderich posted her “Open Letter to Steve Jobs” in April, pleading with the Apple CEO to apply some of that company’s design expertise to improving the lives of the 20 million American diabetics who rely on technology to manage their condition every day. Amy asked for better products for diabetics, but we recognized that those products had to add up to an experience that would satisfy their emotional and psychological needs. So we set out to develop an experience design concept that addressed user behavior and psychology as well as current technological trends to project how insulin pumps and glucose meters might work five years from now.
