Beautiful Japanese Building with a 200 feet fall!

Japan is set to launch it's first building-mounted free-fall ride in an exterior wall of Osaka's $157 million 12-story namBa H!PS entertainment complex set to open this December. The ride will provide guests with a beautiful view of the city right before it drops them 200-feet down the side of the building at 50 mph. Surely not for the weak hearted!

"Vice Versa" Digital Clock Only Needs Its Hands To Serve You

A lot of designers have taken a minimalist approach when it comes to wall clocks these days, and China's Yiran Qian certainly fits into that category with his "Vice Versa" clock. However, the inclusion of a digital interface on the hands is surely appreciable. It's a truly unique way to blend the aesthetics of an analog clock with the functionality of a digital. It's only a concept at this point, but it looks to become popular once it is out in the markets.
