Hydrofloors are only like the coolest thing ever invented. They are specially designed pools with movable floors. When you’re using your pool it’s just like a normal pool. But when you are done swimming or aquacising, you press a button and the pool’s floor slowly raises up while the water slips underneath the floor. Pimpin! Eventually the pool’s floor reaches the top and you are left with a large flat area you can use for recreation, dining, parties or any other dry land event you want.
Another press of the button and the floor sinks back down slowly to reveal your already water-filled pool. You can also stop the floor at any point which means you can make the pool as shallow or deep as you want. Having a kid’s party? Just set it for shallow kiddie pool depth. Be sure to throw a few extra chlorine tablets in the pool cleaning mechanism though, you know how kids are.

Wave Table 02 (2010-2012) by Frederik Skåtar
The table is a part of the project “From animation to sculpture” which was funded by the Swedish Arts Grants Committee (Konstnärsnämnden) in 2010.
Materials: acrylic glass and aluminium
Dimensions: 1000X1000X500 mm
Amplitude: max 3mm
Wave Table 02 is made of acrylic glass through which objects visually seem to be under water. The aim with this project is to “hide a sculpture” in a common object, in this case a table.
The sculpture materializes a shape that constantly occurs in nature, however we cannot see it because of our perception of time and movement. Here, the movement of water has been frozen and carved out as a sculpture.
When a very massive star, reaching the final stage of its life, exhausts its nuclear fuel it explodes as a supernova. The outer parts of the star are expelled violently into space, while the core completely collapses under its own weight. The outer gaseous layers, mainly hydrogen, still surrounding the core would rush outward, generating a shock wave.
If the core remaining after the supernova is very massive (more than 2.5 times the mass of the Sun), no known repulsive force inside a star can push back hard enough to prevent gravity from completely collapsing the core into a black hole.
If this animation is not awesome, I don’t know what is.
