Horizn Studios and Alyssa Carson create luggage for space travel

Berlin-based luggage brand Horizn Studios collaborated with the world’s youngest astronaut, Alyssa Carson, to develop a smart, carbon fibre suitcase suitable for space tourism. The Horizn One case concept boasts a shell that would be made from carbon fibre reinforced with super-material graphene. This would enable enhanced flexibility and strength as well as making it […]

University of Stuttgart creates biomimetic pavilions based on sea urchins and beetle wings

The University of Stuttgart has continued its experiments into biomimicry and robotic construction with two pavilions at the Bundesgartenschau horticultural show in Germany. Both of the pavilions are built by robots and take the their forms from animals – a sweeping wooden pavilion has a shape based on sea urchins, while a fibre-composite pavilion takes its […]
