DARPA Captive Air Amphibious Transporters (CAAT) For Disaster Relief

"This video depicts testing of a 1/5 scale demonstrator of the Captive Air Amphibious Transporters (CAAT). The CAAT has air-filled pontoons on a tank tread-like design, enabling them to carry containers over water and directly onto shore.

The vehicle is part of DARPA's Tactically Expandable Maritime Platform (TEMP) (http://go.usa.gov/vF3) program, which seeks new sea and air delivery systems to enable direct support to disaster zones from offshore container ships. All technologies developed under TEMP are transportable using standard 20-foot or 40-foot commercial shipping containers. This technology demonstrator is jointly funded with the Office of Naval Research, who is looking at it for potential use as an amphibious transport for the
Marines/Navy."

Anime Studio Pro and Debut 9 were released yesterday and Smith Micro sent us a review copy of the Pro edition. Anime Studio, if you unfamiliar is affordably priced animation software package that addresses both the needs of the casual animation enthusiast (through Debut) and the hard core animator with previous training in other software (through Pro). 

 

It seems to me that there is major difference from older versions of the software.

Shakin Stevens House by Matt Gibson Architecture + Design

Shakin Stevens House by Matt Gibson Architecture + Design | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Matt Gibson Architecture + Design have designed the Shakin Stevens House in Melbourne, Australia.

‘Shakin Stevens House’ utilises many environmental principles – retention of existing structure, orientation and configuration of new works, sun protection (eaves), exposed thermal mass, passive temperature regulation, low embodied energy construction techniques & materials, structural depth within walls for mass bulk insulation with R values, insulation of entire existing dwelling (floor, walls, ceiling), use of recycled timber flooring/decking. A grey water system, 2 side water storage tanks, fake grass & ‘succulent’ planting temper water usage whilst providing intrinsic features of the colour scheme.

Beyond these, this project is about providing a future robustness, better utilisation of amenity and a more fuller embracing of its urban condition. They have borrowed what was previously laying dormant within and beyond their walls. This new layout provides for a sustainable model of space/s that can sustain user types (a couple, 2 couples, a family with teenagers, guests) through separation of sleeping zones about a flexible living zone that they can upsize (externally). This project embraces it’s ‘green-ness’. Colour was a vital strategy in adding glow and clarity to this expression on a number of levels...

Prague’s newest eco building and its impressive green roof

Prague’s newest eco building and its impressive green roof | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
A team of architects have designed a series of townhomes which are (wait for it...) inserted into an artificial hillside. You'll see from the photos that this make-believe hillside is covered by a unique carpet of grass.

The complex is located near the historic Prague city centre and is called the “Central Park Praha (Prague)”. The concept was designed by A96 Architects and AED Project. According to the architects, the residence will have its own 1.5-hectare park. It also happens to be right next to one of the largest parks in Prague, Parukáøka.

The layout of the complex was inspired by the natural environment, transforming its sharp features into a park through an artificial green embankment.

“The embankment is actually a terraced building with a green roof and façade. The compact green façade is used as the roof of two-storey townhouses interrupted by balcony frames playfully distorting the layout by connecting several smaller units into one larger unit...

NASA's Next Rover Has 3D-Printed Parts

NASA's ultimate goal is to send humans to Mars. And when we get there, we'll be driving a vehicle with 3D-printed parts. In this video, NASA engineers talk about developing and testing a next-generation rover designed to support humans on other worlds, such as asteroids and, eventually, Mars — and how 3D printing helps.

Green Building Sparks Battle for the Built Environment

Green Building Sparks Battle for the Built Environment | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
The explosive growth in green buildings over the past decade is flattening the built environment.

 

An interesting take on the greening of the built environment...

 

Until recently, building automation, lighting controls, fire safety and other base building systems were designed and deployed to support a single building service and operated independently on proprietary network and cables. Green building’s emphasis on integrated design and whole-building performance has accelerated the convergence of these silos into a single platform, transforming a fragmented, vertical value chain into an integrated, horizontal value chain.

Simply put, the building management business is becoming flat and doing so fast. This convergence of information and communications technology and physical infrastructure in the built environment is providing building owners and occupants with actionable information about a building or space that allows them manage that building or space more effectively.
