Here’s World of Warcraft Starting Zones designed as Travel Ads

World of Warcraft Starting Zones as Travel Ads

Artist Dcmjs to design a gallery of travel advertisements based on the starting zones in the MMO World of Warcraft. The locations that he selected are actually perfect candidates as far as resembling the beautiful vacation spots you’d see in actual travel advertisements.  These starting zones are relatively calm, are designed around unique themes, and anyone (or practically everyone) who played WoW  has visited at least a couple of them and probably imagined what they’d look like in real life.  Check out some highlights below after the break, and there’s a lot more in the creator’s imgur gallery, along with funny concepts how these fake ads would look like on billboards, public transportation, and other types of varied display media.

Here’s SpaceX’s ‘Uptown Funk’ Parody, Showing That They Really Can Do Important Work…

Aside from Tesla, it’s safe to call Elon Musk‘s SpaceX one of the most important and innovative companies on the planet, as their work on spacecrafts, innovations in engineering and plans for manned missions to Mars are amazing and nearly overwhelming. So if you’re part of a company with this much going for it, you’re likely going to release a parody video to brag about your accomplishments, but kudos to SpaceX for making it one of the very few corporate videos you’ll actually laugh with rather than laugh at.

Deutsche Bahn Rail Network to Fight Vandalism with Drones

Oh the drone; from national defense overseas, to personal photography and to aerial artwork, they are finding new applications for use every day. The usage of drones has caught the attention of  Germany’s national rail network, and they wish to utilize them as a way to defend their trains from the evil known as vandalism.  When you think about it, after YOUR trains have been defaced approximately 14,000 times in 2012 ALONE (as Deutsche Bahn’s trains were) and you had to spend $9.8 million for clean-up, you’d start thinking about using flying robots to bust those vandals, too.   Continue reading “Deutsche Bahn Rail Network to Fight Vandalism with Drones”

The Kamppi Chapel of Silence, or if Noah’s Ark Became a Church…

According to the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament in the Holy Bible, Noah was tasked by God to assemble a pair of every animal on Earth and bring them aboard a giant Ark, which Noah would have to build and be equipped to survive a flood sent by God to wipe the Earth clean.  At the very height of the flood, the ark rested on mountaintops, and the waters began to recede as dry land reappeared, leaving Noah, his family, and the animals leave the ark to repopulate the Earth.  Now, I know you’re asking what this has to do with architecture, but if you take just ONE look at the Kamppi Chapel of Silence, built by K2S Architects in Finland, the building’s design just screams of the vessel of Noah’s fantastic voyage.  Continue reading “The Kamppi Chapel of Silence, or if Noah’s Ark Became a Church…”
