Neon Genesis Evangelion – Unit 01 Radio Antenna

Okay, totaler Trash. Aber als Fan von Neon Genesis Evangelion erwähne ich es trotzdem. Laut Beschreibung ist die KFZ-Dachantenne sogar auf “aerodynamic low air resistance” getestet worden. Woah, cutting edge high-end!

Eva merch is getting into yet another market with Evangelion Automotive Accessory, set to introduce an AM/FM radio antenna based on Unit 01’s trademark horn this year. The retractable piece is designed to fit on most Japanese cars, is tested for aerodynamic low air resistance and high receiver sensitivity, and painted in that famous purple color scheme with high-grade acrylic urethane.

Marc Quinns Face made of frozen Blood

Ein Selbstportrait des Künstlers Marc Quinn aus 5 l gefrorenem Blut. Das macht er wohl schon seit 1991 im Rhythmus von 5 Jahren.

In ‘Self’, a self-portrait of the artist Marc Quinn is cast in several pints of his frozen blood. The blood is pasteurised, but its appearance does change slightly during the sculpture’s installation. Described by Quinn as a ‘frozen moment on lifesupport’, the work is carefully maintained in a refrigeration unit, reminding the viewer of the fragility of existence. The artist makes a new version of ‘Self’ every five years, each of which documents Quinn’s own physical transformation and deterioration.

‘Noah’s Ark’: Russia wants to collect the DNA of every creature

Der 430 qm große Bau für das Projekt soll bis 2018 fertig sein. Anschließend beginnt das große Sammeln.

Institutions have already been amassing huge DNA collections to catalog the world’s creatures, but Moscow State University might just top them all. It’s planning to build “Noah’s Ark,” a repository for the genes of every creature, living or extinct — as long as the genes are readable, they’ll either be cryogenically frozen or stored as pure data. Not surprisingly, it’s going to be a massive undertaking in more ways than one.
