We've brought you news about the solar powered Zephyr plane and its ability to break records such as the world's longest unmanned flight before, but this week, the UK-designed plane not only had its
We've seen electric aircraft advance the horizons of carbon-free aviation by leaps and bounds lately, and this month a brand new electric plane successfully conducted its maiden flight. The all-electric
Two Bushwick warehouses are joined together in this renovation project, called the Wycoff Exchange, that includes a live music and performance venue along with an organic market and boutique wine shop.
Remember the Cri-Cri, the world's smallest electric plane? In August, we wrote how the vehicle had made its first maiden flight near Paris, and now it has shattered the speed record for electric aircraft
Image © Bruce Forster Photography The 10-story building was inspired by the form of an airplane hull, and it sits right in front of the PDX main terminal on top of a new parking structure. The
Good news for European jet-setters: traveling from the U.K. to Germany and Holland is about to get a whole lot easier. German rail company Deutsche Bahn is in the testing stages for a cross-channel bullet
A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Field and Space Robotic Laboratory (FSRL) has designed a new solar-powered water desalination system to provide drinking water to disaster
We here at Inhabitat are huge fans of the Solar Impulse, an incredible zero emission aircraft powered by 12,000 solar cells located on its wings. Over the last year we've cheered this stellar solar
Political correctness aside, Boeing's proposed solar-powered spy plane is really freakin' cool: the company says the plane it's building for the DOD will be able to fly unmanned for five years straight.
The ground floor is an open entrance space that features only a small staircase to indicate the richness of the living spaces above. The second floor simply contains a mechanical room and storage. An
The Solar Impulse solar-powered airplane is unstoppable so far. Earlier this summer, the single-seat plane completed its first night flight, and now the aircraft is getting ready for three test flights
Just when you thought things were getting better in the Gulf of Mexico, another oil rig has just exploded. This morning around 9:30 am CDT a commercial helicopter reported that an oil production platform
Soaring like robotic birds, these energy generating flying devices were conceived by Carlos Campos Yamila Zynda Aiub Architects for the skies of Dubai. Called Wings, the curious "creatures" use solar
It's generally agreed the world over that transportation is the largest contributor to global warming. As such, governments have begun heavily investing in high-speed rail projects and other transport
When it comes to green transportation, everyone has heard of hybrid cars and energy-efficient vehicles. Even airplanes use biofuel these days, but one form of transport that has yet to be made greener is
We recently reported on a program led by NASA that was aiming to green the future of air transportation, and now Boeing -- along with their teammates General Electric and Georgia Tech -- are following
This is the first project in the US by the respected architect Shigeru Ban. The minimalist building is stripped down to its fundamental elements -- the simple boxiness of the 11 story building opens fully
As soon as 2030, we might be flying in a new, more efficient aircraft with long, curled wings, a U-shaped tail, and a lightweight body -- if manufacturer Airbus develops the "fantasy plane" it unveiled
Targets of espionage beware! Planemaker Boeing just unveiled its new hydrogen-powered spy plane yesterday, and the strangely cute and chubby aircraft is capable of flying at an altitude of 65,000 feet for
The Solar Impulse airplane landed in Switzerland this morning after a 26-hour flight that proved that a solar-powered airplane can fly in darkness. The propeller plane has nearly 12,000 solar cells on its
Can a solar-powered plane fly at night? We'll know for certain in just a few short hours. Early this morning the 40-horsepower Solar Impulse aircraft embarked upon its first 24-hour trip. Just before
NASA and Lockheed Martin just unveiled a design for an ultra-efficient aircraft dubbed the Supersonic Green Machine. Though there's not much known about the craft at this point in time, it could prove to
We’ve reported on cardboard high chairs, cardboard houses and cardboard coffins, but never have we seen cardboard applied on such an impressive and artful scale. Artist Don Lucho is taking this
InterfaceFLOR's giant recycled elephant was created in partnership with the Human Elephant Foundation and Chicago’s Field Museum. The elephant was crafted entirely from tires by South African artist
the Japanese space agency, JAXA, successfully unfurled a solar sail in space for the first time.
