Guido Zimmermann Turns Compelling Architecture Into Cuckoo Clocks

“Cuckoo Blocks” are Zimmermann’s answer to the traditional cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest in Germany. They present a contemporary view of urban living and compelling architecture. The hull is new, but the soul, a clockwork with a cuckoo, is still an old one.

Two aspects have a special significance here: buildings with a striking history and architectural value, as well as living in social flashpoints. Both are connected to the blocky, massive concrete construction.

Fantastic French Publicity Caravans Of Yesteryear

In 1929 the race director of the Tour de France got together with the marketing director of the country’s leading chocolatier, Menier, to create the first parade of caravans promoting French products. A fleet of vehicles were seen by nearly 10 million people on the route promoting various goods and local businesses– and the tradition was born…

The caravans have become more and more extravagant over the years, eventually spawning an official competition for the best publicity vehicle. They were built by the great coach builders of the time, such as Heuliez and Augereau, mounted on standard chassis by manufacturers such as Renault and Citroen.

People Of Bell Labs In The 1960s

In 1967, Lawrence ‘Larry’ Luckham was an operations manager at Bell Labs in Oakland, California. He brought a camera into work to capture a day in the life at a company churning out some of the biggest technological advances of the decade.

“In the late ’60’s I worked for Bell Labs for a few years managing a data center and developing an ultra high speed information retrieval system,” says Lawrence Luckham (born July 12, 1943). “It was the days of beehive hair on the women and big mainframe computers. One day I took a camera to work and shot the pictures below. I had a great staff, mostly women except for the programmers who were all men. For some reason only one of them was around for the pictures that day.”

These photos are from 1967. Above: “Data Terminal Test Room, Bell Labs, California, 1960s.”

These Chinese Sex Robots Are Equipped With Artificial Intelligence

Shenzhen Atall Intelligent Robot Technology is one of China’s leading companies for robots equipped with AI (artificial intelligence). Among the company’s various AI robot products, its best-selling is an AI sex robot named Emma.

The multi-functional machine is linked to the internet and Android operating system and features high stimulation capabilities. Sex robots have soft and elastic skin made of modified thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) material, with less oil content and no smell. Its temperature adjustment is set to 37 C to resemble a human’s. Safety issues are managed with anti-electric shock, anti-fire and anti-explosion measures. And the addition of body sensors help make sex robots feel more like a human.

But a semblance of authenticity doesn’t come cheap, and Emma’s online retail price is about 20,000 RMB ($3,136) with most customers being men aged 40-50. Most clients are from Europe and the United States.

Meet Photographer Emanuele D’Angelo, Who Calls Emily Ratajkowski His Muse

Rome-born photographer, Emanuele D’Angelo, comes from an era of photography where a “traditional” approach was the industry norm – enamored by the books of luminaries like Hirohiko Araki and Richar Kern which he had acquired from his father. While for many artists, this may have formed a jaded opinion towards the newer generation, D’Angelo is actually happy to see people expressing themselves in any matter they see fit.

Although D’Angelo has shot people like Rihanna, Big Sean, Bella Hadid, Miguel, Rich the Kid, and Dwyane Wade, its his work with model/actress, Emily Ratajkowski.

“I met my friend/muse Emily Ratajkowski when I went to LA for the very first time back in 2012,” he says. “A friend we had in common from Rome introduced me to her and her boyfriend at that time.
