Red Peak is a place where Design and Strategy meet to transform brands.

twitter.com/RedPeakBranding:

    Founder of Tesla Motors, PayPal and most recently SpaceX, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has started yet another endeavor- this time promising transport from New York City to LA in just 45 minutes. ET3, Musk’s latest venture looks to offer an alternative method to transportation using tubular magnetic technologies.

    The electronic model promises to not only cut down on energy consumption but also travel time, with 6-person capsules reaching speeds of up to 4,000 mph with only 1G of resistance. While the technology appears to be a dream machine, its installation would require the construction of an entirely new grid system of vacuum tubes across the country and worldwide. The system is currently seeking out large scale backers to help move towards at least a small scale demonstration, but check out the blueprints here in the meantime.

    THE WAY WE USED TO BE

    We have gotten used to seeing major tech players like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google on our phones, tablets, desktops and within apps. We swipe, scroll, and even read via eye scan. Does anyone really remember what these websites (if you can even call them that anymore) used to look like? Take a tour back in time and see how far we really have come in the last decade of web design.

    MAN CAN 3D PRINT EMBRYONIC CELLS

    Scientists have for the first time 3D printed stem cells that could be used to produce entire organs. That means we’re headed toward a future where kidneys and livers can be mass produced…pretty exciting stuff.

    DYSON AIRBLADE TAP HAND DRYER

    Dyson is changing the way we wash and dry our hands, combining the wash and dry processes right into the faucet. 

    “In restrooms using conventional taps, you’ll need to move to a seperate hand drying area, dripping water on the floors as you go. It’s why we’ve developed a tap with our hand drying technology in it.” - James Dyson

    EXHIBIT: ENTER A RAINSTORM AND EMERGE DRY

    Seriously - it’s really raining in there but you’ll walk out dry.

    via it’snicethat:

    "But how on earth does it all work? Walking into the darkened corridor you are greeted with 100 square metres of geometrically perfected rainfall. As you enter the stage into the downpour, 3D depth cameras pick up on your presence, quite literally repelling the heavens from opening up upon you, and the further you enter the more immersed in rain you become."

    Incredible - if you’re in London you have to do this!

    DR SEUSS APP RECORDS PARENT STORY TELLING

    Adorable. 

    According to MacRumors:

    "Users can now record themselves reading the Dr. Seuss story, and then share the recording with family and friends that also own the digital book. If Mom or Dad are away from home on a business trip or deployed in the military, the app allows parents to virtually read their children a bedtime story. The reverse works as well, with a parent or grandparent receiving an audio file of their child or grandchild reading Green Eggs and Ham to them.”

    We can’t figure out if this is real or not. Pretty sure it is though.

    For fans of Arrested Developement, this should be fairly familiar.

    Remote control cockroaches

    Gross can be cool. Right?

    from Gizmag:

    "Much to the annoyance of home-owners everywhere, cockroaches are amazingly tough, and they’re able to squeeze into remarkably small spaces. These are some of the same qualities that researchers would like to see in tiny reconnaissance robots that could perform tasks such as searching earthquake-damaged buildings for survivors. Such adaptable, robust mini-robots would be quite challenging to create, however. A team of scientists from North Carolina State University are working on an alternative – sensor-equipped real cockroaches that are remotely controlled by human operators.”
