Apple Spaceship Campus Renderings and Floor Plans Revealed

Apple Spaceship Campus Renderings and Floor Plans Revealed

This past June we caught a glimpse of what Steve Jobs and the Apple crew had planned for the City of Cupertino, that being a gigantic "spaceship" campus in the shape of a ring, one so magnificent it would make ancient Rome cry little column-shaped tears. What we've got now is extended details including floor plans and renderings. Look at this fantastic vision in architecture and imagine for yourself the secrets and future presentations on iPads it may hold. Would you be happy working in such a facility?

“Apple City” campus plans tip Norman Foster as designer

Apple has reportedly called on British architect Norman Foster to design its new campus, using the 100 acres of land the company bought from HP last month for $300m. According to Spanish paper ElEconomista, the new campus - which they're dubbing Apple City, though there's no confirmation of the official name - will be modelled after Masdar City in Abu Dhabi (as shown in this promotional image), with an entirely underground road and transport infrastructure that leaves the surface level green.

Here’s how you get a Project Ara modular phone

Here’s how you get a Project Ara modular phone

Today at the 2nd annual Project Ara Developer Conference at Google's Mountain View, California home, the launch of the project has been revealed - sort of. You getting a Project Ara device in your hands isn't going to be as easy as heading to your local mobile carrier or department store. It's also not likely that you're going to be in a launch city from the start. In fact, unless you live in Puerto Rico, you're going to have to wait at least a few months more. Project Ara "launches" in 2015, but not necessarily for you and your pocket.

johanson3 electric cargo trike can tote around a passenger

Electric scooters, whatever variety they might come in, are usually designed to meet a combined need for compact design and relatively long ranges, being ideal for zipping around a campus, big city, or other places where cars are overkill. For that reason, many scooters (and their more stable trike offshoots) aren't able to accommodate cargo or a second passenger, which can be unfortunate. The johanson3 is different, retaining a very minimalist design while being able to tote along a second person or some cargo.

Sands Hotel hacked earlier this year, brought system to its knees

Sands Hotel hacked earlier this year, brought system to its knees

A new report details a troubling assault on the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where a group of Iranians hacked the company’s internal system and brought it to its knees. An entire casino at the mercy of hackers, but it likely wasn’t for the reasons you’d think. No money was taken; instead, it was a digital offensive, possibly due to Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson’s remarks made late last year. A message left on the Sands’ server echoed as much, showing that political disagreements can have actual consequence outside of war.

New microscope rapidly captures molecules, cells in high-def

New microscope rapidly captures molecules, cells in high-def

When Eric Betzig shared the Nobel Prize in chemistry a few weeks ago, little did the world know that he was already in the middle of cooking up yet another award-worthy development. After his PALM microscope, Betzig is now taking the biology world by storm again with a new lattice light microscope. This microscope is not only able to capture high resolution images of molecules and cells, it can do so rapidly and in complete three dimensions. And all these while minimizing damage to the cells being photographed.

Android L: Will it be Lollipop, or Licorice?

Android L: Will it be Lollipop, or Licorice?

Do you know who Giovanni Calabrese is? He’s the guy responsible for those shrines to Android that adorn the Google campus each time a new release is upon us. He’s also working on the latest Android monument, but isn’t being forthcoming about what it will be. In fact, Calabrese is going out of his way to troll us all a bit. Widely believed to be called “Lollipop”, Android L is being teased by the statue maker as “Licorice” (or “Liquorish”, depending on the post).
