    In the 1970s space colonies were considered to be a viable alternative to a life restricted to planet Earth. The design of cylindrical space...
    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.

    I think this CD becomes immersive for the person experiencing these sounds outside of the place it is presented.

    A great way to get back at those noisy neighbors! Give them a taste of their own medicine with any one of these 20 ear-splitting sound effect tracks. Anyone who's ever lived in an apartment will really appreciate this hilarious CD! Earplugs supplied for your listening pleasure. Imported from France.

    Tracks include: 1) Drill; 2) Party (At Least 200 People); 3) Orgasm (Outstanding); 4) Train; 5) Drum (Played by a Child); 6) Inhuman Screams; 7) Walking (High Heels); 8) Domestic Squabble; 9) Doors Banging; 10) Bowling; 11) Unhappy Dog; 12) Practicing Scales (Violin); 13) Traffic Jam; 14) Garbage Truck; 15) Newborn; 16) Phone Ringing; 17) Ball Game; 18) Pigeons; 19) Spring Cleaning; and 20) Cock-a-Doodle-Doo!

    How do we get there?
    Why do we want to go?
    When can we do this?
    What happens to us up there?
    Do we abandon nature or what's left of it?

    There are so many questions to ask about going to space. Where do we start? I'm still trying to wrap my head around going to space, how could we leave earth? Why would I really want to leave earth? Doesn't it contradict nature to leave nature? Or has everything in the history of the world culminated to the very moment when nature leaves nature to create a new nature? Does that even make sense?

    Or are we just trying to escape our supposed doom?
    Another one of those fight or flight instincts.

    Interactive Koi Ponds
    This system has motion sensors that can detect your hands/feet moving above the “water” and ripples will be created in sync with your movements. The fish will also avoid or take interest with your interaction with your water.



    Body Wars was a simulator ride where you were "shrunk" and ventured into the body to explore and of course beat a virus. An immersive view into someone's body and envrionment where really no one can travel, as of now.



    Under pressure from other more sustainable buildings popping up around the world, such as the recently featured Bahrain World trade Center, London’s Gherkin Tower, designed by Norman Foster, has recently begun testing an innovative vegetated facade panel which promises to change the face of building design forever. This new “Green wall” product, known as the Core Hydraulic Integrated Arboury panel, promises to bring the benefits of green roofs to any exterior surface of skyscraper.



    30 The Bond is a building in Australia that greatly reduced it's greenhouse emissions and uses much natural cooling and heating from the sandstone wall that helped construct this building.



    Bejing's National Swim Center for the 2008 Olympics is using natual aspects for the bubble like shell and uses natual heating to keep the interior and pools warm. It also uses natural light.



    Zip-tie lights which look like somekind of sea anemone or creature that pulsates. Another reflection of nature in a personal object, this being a lamp.



    Here is one thing that space might develop with nature, hydroponics in space.


    Soarnin' Over California is an immersive ride over places in California.

    One of the first experiences for Americans to see the world, making the world smaller. Walt Disney began showing these adventures on television is the 50s and there was audience for it because most of them had never seen anything like it. The programs featured exotic places and animals and Disney brought these experiences to the envrionment of your very own living room.

    Japanese Gardens are immersive in the entire environment around you and also by the story that the gardens tells. Everything that is placed in a japanese garden tells a story of a god or a great warrior. The gardens are also a sanctuary to escape the complexity of everyday life.

    Yes, it's cheesy, but this theme park accomplished a lot and brought a world of information to a very diverse audience. Even though it's not really Walt Disney's exact plan of what it was supposed to be, it still is mighty ambitious and imaginative.

    It's kind of amazing how we can transfer energy to power something. Think of all the people dancing or in spinning class wasting all that energy. Don't you think America would be thinner if they had to ride a bike in order to watch their television?
