How many of you out there have endured the horror of a long layover at an airport and somehow didn’t lose your mind running mad thru said airport and/or sitting inside one longer than on your flight? But it’s OK, as most airports come with distractions and features like phone charging areas (don’t use them, just saying), WELL-overpriced food and snacks, and pricey books/magazines. OK, true, none of those things are THAT inviting, but I’m sure a perfect solution could be headed toward you, and that solution: nap pods!

Look, robotic remote-controlled cars are awesome and they always have been. Even last fall, Anki released an adorable, palm-sized robot companion names Cozmo for sale in the US. Plus, it didn’t just rolls on its tank treads, it also uses its arm to interact with its surroundings, AND has a built-in camera to recognize you AND your pets. Starting in July, Anki will put the Cozmo on sale in the Great White North (a.k.a., Canada) for $250 CA, and in September, it will be available for purchase in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Nordic countries.

The Little Island, County Cork, Ireland-based Exigent Networks is a network security solutions company that aims at delivering high quality network connectivity. The company, with offices in Dublin and Birmingham, England, primarily focus on offering network and security infrastructure, IP telephony, microwave wireless, network and systems management and related services to private and public clients. As part of that line of work, it’s a necessity to conduct research related to the market you’re in and the services you offer. According to a detailed research graphic Exigent sent my way, it seems that they are seeing the amount of public wireless hotspots in Europe to more than double, triple, quadruple or even quintuple (and THEN some) within the next 12 months.
This is the epitome of patience, as it has only taken 133 years since the laying of the foundation of Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família for the project’s construction to finally enter its final phase. The project’s directing architect Jordi Faulí, who is overseeing the completion of six new towers that will raise the “Tower of Jesus Christ” to approximately 566-foot-tall, stated that it would become the tallest religious structure in Europe and Barcelona’s tallest building in a recent public statement. The final stage won’t only include the construction of the 566 foot Tower of Jesus Christ, but will include five other 443-foot towers honoring the Virgin Mary and the four apostles.
In this month’s architecture-themed episode of PractitioNERD Documented, or “Doc’D”, host Montez McCrary will be discussing the history and legacy of the Art Nouveau movement.
