When the world economy is in a spot of bother experts will advise you to invest in gold. So, being money minded sorts, the staff at Perth Mint in Australia have done just that and manufactured the world's largest gold coin. While it has a nominal value of A$1million (£650,000) - and is actually being sold as legal tender for that price - the current cost of gold makes it worth a LOT more.

MUSEUM OF SCIENCE, MIAMI

MUSEUM OF SCIENCE, MIAMI

The ongoing effort to turn a large swath of downtown Miami’s bayfront into a center of science, art and learning has taken another important step. Knight Foundation announced a $10 million challenge grant to the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. To be paid, the funds must be matched by an additional $20 million in funding. The pledge comes as the science museum, currently located in Coconut Grove, is poised to break ground next month on its new home in downtown’s Museum Park along Biscayne Bay. The Frost will rise alongside the under-construction Jorge M. Perez Art Museum and sit a block from the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, two institutions that each received $10 million in Knight support.

CULTURAL COMPLEX


Construction is now underway on a Zaha Hadid-designed cultural complex on the edge of a lake in Changsha, China. The project, which broke ground in October, features an 1800-seat theatre, a contemporary art museum and a smaller multi-purpose venue. Each building is planned as a grouping of petal-shaped volumes that curve around one another to create a central plaza and a series of connecting lawns, terraces and pathways. Zaha Hadid Architects won a competition in 2011 to masterplan the site, which sits opposite Festival Island on the edge of Meixi Lake. As part of the project, the architects will add two pedestrian bridges leading over to the island.The Grand Theatre will be the largest of the three buildings and will positioned at the entrance to the site, while the smaller 500-seat venue is to be positioned opposite and will open out to a sunken courtyard lined with shops and restaurants. The museum is planned for the edge of Meixihu Road and will feature a central atrium that separates to form three wings. On one side, the gallery will lead out to an external plaza for use as a sculpture exhibition area or as a temporary event space.

ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE

Watch it on YouTube : ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE
 
This is the first time we’ve seen a vehicle that combination of two car and byke. Lit Motor’s Lit C-1—a compact two-wheeler—also features electronic gyroscopes that allow the vehicle to stay upright in the event of a collision!

Resembling something from Minority Report, the C-1′s design will comes a relief to many who want the convenience of a motorbike, but also the sturdiness and safety of a car. The C-1 is also big enough for a passenger, meaning it is ideal for short trips around the city.

The innovative EV features 40kW electric motors on the wheels which allow for gyroscopes to be located under the body floor. These spin at more than 1,300 lb/ft of torque. What this means is if the vehicle is hit by a large force, it remains completely balanced so that it doesn’t fall over and injure the occupants. The vehicle also stays upright when stopping. Its large chassis also ensures that both driver and passenger are not just protected from traffic, but also the elements.

The pool at the top of Hong Kong's International Commerce Centre should probably serve up altitude-sickness medicine with its pool towels. That's because the pool, part of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, is roughly 1,600-ft. (490 m) off the ground. Opened in March 2011, the infinity-style amenity comes complete with LED screens that cover the ceiling and one wall so visitors can enjoy a view of coral reefs and peaceful skies, as well as the (real) Victoria Harbor below, while they swim.
