london police crimeThis is going to sound all too familiar, and credit to cinemagloraphy.org for the image of Tom Cruise in the movie, Minority Report, above. In that utopian fantasy world, crime rates were virtually zero – since they have thought police in the future who could arrest someone based on the intent and possibility of commiting a crime – even before it happens. Well, the London police might be going down a similar path, as they test out a new system which would enable them to figure out who is most likely to commit a crime before the dastardly action is carried out. Not quite Minority Report standard just yet, since this predictive technology does not cover regular joes, but rather, it will target gang members.

os31 river restaurantOS31, a British design firm, has managed to win the bid to construct a restaurant. However, what makes this hotly contested winning bid all the more interesting would be the location of this particular restaurant, since it is meant to be located in one of the coldest places worldwide. Those living in Manitoba, Canada, would know how it can be too cold to do anything outdoors during winter, but OS31 has been tasked to come up with a pop-up restaurant on a frozen river during winter. This is one of the most ambitious plans to date, and we would like to think that the success of setting up a proper building over a frozen river is an engineering feat worth applauding – and celebrated.
