KIDmob Helps Superhero Cyborg Kids Prototype Their Own Prosthetics

Imagine being able to design your own super-cool body part, in whatever shape or color you could dream up. Thanks KIDmob, a group of children with a diversity of upper limb capabilities were able to design and prototype their own body modifications. The “Superhero Cyborg” workshop was held at Brown University’s School of Engineering, in conjunction with the Helping Hands Foundation. Engineering and design students from Brown and RISD helped to facilitate the workshop, in which these amazing kids had the chance to challenge traditional ideas about exoskeletons and prosthetics.

INHABITAT INTERVIEW: Water Architect Koen Olthuis on How to Embrace Rising Sea Levels

Sea levels are rising, floods are prevalent, and cities are at greater risk than ever due to climate change. Now that we’ve accepted these facts, it’s time to design and build more resilient structures. Koen Olthuis, one of the most forward-thinking and innovative architects out there, has a solution for rising sea levels. His solution: Embrace the water by incorporating it into our cities; creating resilient buildings and infrastructure that can handle extreme flooding, heavy rains, and higher water. Olthuis and his team at Waterstudio.nl have been showing coastal communities the benefits of building on the water. With countries like the Maldives and Kiribati having to build oceanside or move in order to escape rising sea levels, New York learning to battle storm surges, and Jakarta dealing with massive flooding, embracing water may be our only option for survival. We chatted with Olthuis about how coastal cities can become more resilient in the face of change—read on for our interview!

Last night, Stephen Colbert interviewed Elon Musk for The Colbert Report. As you can imagine, Colbert wheedled out some exclusives from the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors, and described his ideal version of the future that he’d like Musk to make happen. Funnily enough, it sounded a lot like Nicola Tesla’s vision. More fascinating and hilarious details after the jump!

The Cost of Doing Nothing: The Economist Looks At How Climate Change Threatens Our Economy

by , 07/25/14

Measuring The Economic Cost Of Climate Change, flooded house, flooded barn, economy of climate change, climate change and economics

This past May was the hottest on record ever, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The average surface temperature around the world was almost 1°C above its average last century, and Alaska almost 2°C over its average. There’s no denying that climate change is already happening, so the question we need to start asking ourselves now is how is this going to impact our lives, and how can we prepare? Astute business analysts are asking the obvious question: how is this going to impact our economy? A new study highlighted by The Economist magazine looks at precisely this question and tries to calculate the economic cost of climate change. Examining everything from the threat of rising sea levels to coastal real-estate (from Miami to New York City), the economic impact on farming (from increased temperatures and decreased precipitation), to the economic impact of increasingly erratic weather patterns on businesses, homeowners and farming, The Economist takes an in-depth look at what climate change is going to mean for business in the coming decades. Read on to find out more.
