A skateboard has the perfect form factor for a soft panel light, which is why Aputure is launching a new Skateboard light for filmmakers on the go called the Brightboard. Details below:  Keeping your kit mobile is key in the fast paced world of production and I’m usually trying to optimize my gear for travel. Having a light with built-in wheels or wheels with a built-in light means I’m able to move from location to location quickly and the Brightboard also fits in the overhead of most aircraft or in the storage compartment of Amtrak. I had the Brightboard for a few days of initial testing and I found it useful for moving equipment about — especially heavy sandbags, stingers and crafty. But when you turn on the power button it is easy to see why this could be a game changer. The Brightboard is unfortunately daylight-only at this poin...

Text description provided by the architects. The site was purchased by an author seeking a tree change having lived in inner city Melbourne for many years. The dwelling is part of a larger project to re-imagine and revitalize the underworked paddock into a place of habitation, connection, and reflection. The site slopes in the north-south direction and have been sculptured into subtly undulations from surface water that seeps through the ground from the adjacent Springhill. The dwelling is sited towards the high point of the site adjacent an outcrop of granite that forms an imperceptible rise to the north of the building site, offering both a foreground for aspect from the dwelling and obscuring view and noise from the road. Like much of rural Australia, haysheds are dotted through the Macedon Ranges. Their simple forms reflect rational necessity. Often located on high ground, their figure in the landscape contributed to the Australian myth of shelter and defiance. The project extends upon these themes to create a place within the paddock. A large roof stretches beyond the enclosed spaces to act as a place-maker, defining the area of habitation from the treeless grass expanse. P...

Blue Nova Launches The MegaBoy 1 MWh Storage Product

South Africa has been experiencing a lot of electricity rationing recently as the power utility, Eskom, struggles to meet demand. We recently looked at how these electricity blackouts have helped nurture South Africa’s nascent stationary storage assembly and manufacturing market. Now one of the players in this space, Blue Nova Energy, a member of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange Listed Reunert Group, looks to be ramping up nicely and has just launched the MegaBoy. The MegaBoy 250 kW, 1 MWh containerized intelligent Energy Storage System. Picture by Nicholas Mutize. The MegaBoy, which Blue Nova also calls the intelligent Energy Storage System (iESS), is a grid-scale stationary storage product. Blue Nova says this is the first of its kind to be manufactured in South Africa. The MegaBoy is a 250 kW, 1 MWh, scalable battery pack, making it also suitable for rural mini-grids, commercial & industrial (C&I), as well as grid-scale applications. The MegaBoy is designed for both off-grid and grid-connected applications. With power outages in South Africa ranging from about 2 to 4 hours a day, the MegaBoy could be a perfect drop-in replacement for diesel backup generators at schools...

e are a few things you may notice: first, the number of pieces is precise – there is no wastage. You get what you need, no more, no less. Now imagine if you could construct buildings like this. Well, you can, using steel-framed buildings produced by FrameTech Systems in Estevan. The company is owned and operated by Brad Wilhelm. It started operations in September 2014, and is located right in the centre of the Energy City. “We get an architectural drawing and convert the whole building to steel,” Wilhelm said. Their software will design individual rafters, studs and joist. They just have to click “run” and send it to the machines to be produced. As an example, he pulled up drawings of a three story house destined for Edmonton. The custom built home would have an elevator and grassed terrace on the roof. Residential, multi-residential as well as light-commercial projects are a few of the applications that steel framing can be used for. FrameTech’s precision roll-forming machines will take flat steel and form it into studs. Each stud is pre-cut and pre-dimpled for easy assembly. Service holes will be punched where necessary. “Every stud is labelled for where it belongs in the wal...

Even Chris Evans does it. Even if the last time you strapped on a pair of roller blades (also known as “inline skates”) was your eighth-grade best friend’s roller-rink birthday party — there are plenty of modern options out there for all experience levels and road conditions. There’s a lot more to picking out a pair of roller blades than requesting your size at the roller-rink rental counter, though. If you’re going to invest in a pair of roller blades, you’ll want to consider the number and size of the wheels, the length of the frame (the part that the wheels are attached to), and the stiffness or cushiness of the boot, which all affect control and maneuverability. We talked to eight roller-blading instructors, retailers, and skating enthusiasts about the best blades for recreational skating, city skating, aggressive skating, and more. Several of our experts recommended roller blades from K2, a 25-year-old inline-skate manufacturer that also makes helmets and pads (don’t forget to get these too!) Pa...
