The Things Only Architects Can Do!!!

This is not our upside-down house

upsidedownhouse

Daniel Czapiewski designs the upside-down house in Poland

A Polish businessman and philanthropist says he has built this upside down house to remind people of wrongdoings against humanity. The house has been attracting thousands of tourists. People visiting the house start to feel sea-sick once they are inside. “Mankind spoiling this world, and only mankind can fix it…”, the owner of this new wonder said. The house took 5 times longer to build than a normal house.

It took 114 days to build the structure – a typical project made by Czapiewski’s cooperation which specializes in wooden houses, would normally take 21 days to construct. He remembers that his workers had to take an hour’s break every three hours while working inside the house because they were feeling disorientated and confused from the strange angles of the walls.

The upside down house is not the first unusual structure made or devised by Czapiewski. He is infamous for making the longest single piece of wood in the world – a Guinness World Record. Czapiewski also smuggled a complete antique house out of Russia. The house was built by Polish detainees sent in their thousands to desolate regions of Siberia by Russian Tsars in the eighteenth century. Because of its age, suspected to be over 240 years old, the Siberian house was officially an antique and therefore illegal to export.

What If We Lived Life Backwards??

You start out dead and get that out of the way.

Then you wake up in an old age home feeling better every day.

Then you get kicked out for being too healthy.

Enjoy your retirement and collect your pension.

Then when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day.

You work 40 years until you’re too young to work.

You get ready for high school: drink alcohol, party, and you’regenerally promiscuous.

Then you go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, and you have no responsibilities.

Then you become a baby, and then…

You spend your last 9 months floating peacefully in luxury, in spa-like conditions – central heating, room service on tap…

Babu Sassi, a fearless young man from southern India is the cult hero of Dubai ‘s army of construction workers.

Known as the “Indian on the top of the world”, Babu is the crane operator at the world’s tallest building , the 819-meter Burj Dubai. His office, the cramped crane cab perched on top of the Burj, is also his home. Apparently it takes too long to come down to the ground each day to make it worthwhile.  When the building is completed, its elevators will be the world’s fastest.  

Stories about his daily dalliance with death are discussed in revered terms by Dubai ‘s workers. Some say he has been up there for more than a year, others whisper that he’s paid 30,000 dirhams ($8,168) a month compared with the average wage of 800 dirhams a month. All agree he’s worth it.

Micro Phone

This throat mic is used mainly by tactical assault groups and SWAT teams, throat microphones are something you rarely see on the street. This will change now with Sanwa’s latest hands free system, a Japanese phone design based on a military throat microphone.
