Awesome idea!
TRAMPOLINE BRIDGE OVER THE RIVER SEINE, PARIS

A new bridge concept spanning the River Seine is designed by Paris-based architectural studio Atelier Zündel Cristea.  This winning competition entry is based on the concept of happiness.  The picturesque and historic River Seine already hosts 37 existing bridges.

Positive beginning of the week :)

Your thoughts shape your reality: whenever you think you can achieve something or whenever you think you will never be able to, you are right in both instances. When you decide that you are useless that’s all you’ll ever be but if you just let yourself to believe that you were meant for greatness… it might just find you.

How you feel about yourself is what you project into the world and although your thoughts cannot be seen, they can be felt by others. If you see yourself as ugly or unfit that’s exactly how others will perceive you too. By generating positive energy you will attract people towards you, to the light of your being, and by throwing back the negative vibes you will push everyone away.

SCIENTISTS have built the smallest petrol engine - tiny enough to power a WATCH.
More at : +Interesting Engineering 
The mini-motor, which runs for two years on a single squirt of lighter fuel, is set to revolutionise world technology.
It produces 700 times more energy than a conventional battery despite being less than a centimetre long - not even half an inch. It could be used to operate laptops and mobile phones for months on end - doing away with the need for recharging.
Experts believe it could be phasing out batteries in such items within just six years.

The engine, minute enough to be balanced on a fingertip, has been produced by engineers at the University of Birmingham . Dr Kyle Jiang, lead investigator from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, said: "We are looking at an industrial revolution happening in peoples' pockets.

"The breakthrough is an enormous step forward. Devices which need re- charging or new batteries are a problem but in six years will be a thing of the past."

Other applications for the engine could include medical and military uses, such as running heart pacemakers or mini reconnaissance robots. At present, charging an ordinary battery to deliver one unit of energy involves putting 2,000 units into it.

The little engine, because energy is produced locally, is far more effective.
One of the main problems faced by engineers who have tried to produce micro motors in the past has been the levels of heat produced.
The engines got so hot they burned themselves out and could not be re-used. The Birmingham team overcame this by using heat-resistant materials such as ceramic and silicon carbide.

Professor Graham Davies, head of the university's engineering school, said: "We've brought together all the engineering disciplines, both materials, chemical engineering, civil engineering, and mechanical engineering.

"What better place to have the second industrial revolution - in nano-technology - than where the first took place, in the heart of the West Midlands."
