Malmö Festival Poster
Today we got a letter from SNASK, the swedish design agency. As we love their ideas and the way they are working on things, with such great creativity and endless patience, we present to you their new creation.
They have been working with the City of Malmö on the festival Malmöfestivalen for 5 years, Scandinavia’s largest city festival. This year is the 30th anniversary and SNASK decided to do something bigger and better ever done before. And what would be nicer than making the biggest poster ever made and turn it into an entire physical area? Said and done this was done during the period of final idea presented in February followed by 4 months of execution. In the end of May it was built up by hand and photographed 30 meters up in the air. In mid August the poster/area will stand on the festival for people to interact with, sit on, jump on and sleep on. If you have the chance go there and have a view!

We’ve known Google has been working on self-driving cars for awhile now, but all of a sudden, the project is real: last night, Google revealed a working prototype of its self-driving car. It’s a two-seater that looks something like a mashup of a Fiat 500, Steve Urkel’s car, and a cartoon smiley face.
Google Self-Driving Car on City Streets
Google yesterday gave a glimpse of how their self-driving cars work, and a glimpse of computer vision in action - video embedded below:
Since our last update, we’ve logged thousands of miles on the streets of our hometown of Mountain View, Calif. A mile of city driving is much more complex than a mile of freeway driving, with hundreds of different objects moving according to different rules of the road in a small area. We’ve improved our software so it can detect hundreds of distinct objects simultaneously—pedestrians, buses, a stop sign held up by a crossing guard, or a cyclist making gestures that indicate a possible turn. A self-driving vehicle can pay attention to all of these things in a way that a human physically can’t—and it never gets tired or distracted.
