When it comes to architecture, Dubai is on another level. We already have the world’s tallest building from Dubai, but if you thought that was enough, you were wrong. A rotating tower that has been under construction since 2008 is almost done, with only three years to go.
The Dynamic Tower Hotel will be the first rotating skyscraper ever, with 80 stories and units built on separate floors to enable them rotate separately. It will also be self powered through turbines (79 turbines in each floor) and solar panels hence there won’t be dependence on any external power service provider.
The building units will be using a voice-command activated system that will see residents do the controlling at their own pleasure. The tower was proposed by an Israeli-Italian architect David Fisher.
And guess how much it will cost, a whooping £355million!
Last year so many cases of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones catching fire and exploding reported. The phones were immediately scrubbed off the market and though the manufacturers have not released their findings yet, there might be some good news.
A lithium-ion battery containing a fire-extinguishing material has been designed. The material is released when the battery gets too hot. Flame retardant triphenyl phosphate (TPP) is embedded in a shell within the Lithium battery and when the battery gets too hot, the shell melts releasing it. This was done by the Stanford University research team which also carried tests and found out that the fires were extinguished in 0.4 seconds.
More than 32 people have reportedly died after an airplane they were traveling in hit a village in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The cargo-carrying Boeing 747 was traveling from Hong Kong to Turkey when the tragedy happened, about 1.2 miles away from the airport.
Our condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives in the tragic incident involving an ACT Airlines aircraft in Kyrgyzstan.
A video just surfaced of a fully, gold plated Lamborghini being offloaded from a Kenya Airways cargo plane.The Lamborghini has a customized plate belonging to one Katsha D. A gold plated Lambo would go for as high as US $7.5 Million, that’s equivalent to over 750 000 000 Million!
Some of these things you just have to see to believe. We won’t waste your time. Go ahead, see…
It’s believed that the Lambo belongs to a Ugandan “tycoon” who resides in SA. The tycoon goes by the name of Katsha D’Bank (clearly an alias).
This might be a fourth Lamborghini addition to his collection which also comprises of a Bentley, Mercedes Benz Cross Country alongside more rides. It was reported in Ugandan media early this July that he had purchased another gold plated Lambo.
