Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?
BY MARYAM NABAVI
@ VOL 27
ON NOV 05, 2013
Maryam Nabavi, an Innovation Strategist at Idea Couture, talks about her strategy for the future of commerical space (i.e. Virgin Galactic) as a service industry. If you ever thought about living in space, then small bathrooms, carbon-dehydrated food, and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements are probably not what you had in mind. However, Nabavi redesigned the experience to have humans at the center of the problem so that it can be an enjoyable and memorable experience for anyone no matter their financial or physical situation.

Universal Grey Matter
BY JULIE FREW
@ VOL 21
ON NOV 23, 2014
“I love brains — not in a zombie sort of way — I love discovering how they work.”
Occupational therapist Julie Frew explores a thought: science can be interpreted as very bleak, but also full of hope. She draws parallels between the human brain and our vast universe.
BY ALESSANDRO BERGALLO
@ VOL 10
ON OCT 31, 2014
A format to make science popular through entertainment. A variety. A monthly meeting which has taken place at La Claque (teatro della Tosse) in Genoa throughout the year 2014 and which has been dedicated to the understanding of the world of animals, with special guests and music. A comic show with a specific subject, that tells which are the dynamics of a group and which are the individual behaviours that make us similar -and feel different at the same time- to all the other living forms of this piece of earth. Insects, fishes, monkeys, reptiles, dinosaurs and fantasy animals like the "elephunk" (an elephant which loves the funky music): all the beasts are recalled to explain the complex dynamics that rule our relationships. On stage: musicians, biologists, scientists of the Robotic School in Genoa with drones and robots, dancers, actors, comedians, dragqueen and whatever contributes to tell the story of each episode through the show.

Science-inspired Design Projects by Oscar Diaz
In Tokyo as a participant at this year's edition of DesignTide, Spanish designer Oscar Diaz takes us on a tour of various works, each offering an interesting solution to a design question. He also covers his amazing "Rec & Play" project, a collaboration with designer Yuri Suzuki. The presentation was recorded at last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 77.

Turning Air Into Water, Surfboard/Scene Design, and the Carrot Pavillion
Presentations Richard Groden is one of the founders of Island Sky, and in his presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 15), he talks about its project to extract water from air and turn it into pure drinking water for areas where water is scarce or contaminated. Their goal is not just to produce drinkable water, but also to educate people on the important of sustainability in developing countries. Martín Várbaro is a plastic material artist who started his career by designing surfboards in Argentina, and later in more Latin American countries, including Peru and Brazil. As this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Mar Del Plata Vol. 2) reveals, he also works as a scene decorator for theaters, museums, and public centers, and is now producing work in South America and Europe. Posters We have no new posters to share on the Tumblr blog today, but that gives us a chance to highlight the beach-friendly poster from last week's PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7. Photos and report We've got galleries for two firsts to share (in Castellon and Augsburg), but let us also point you to this blog post from Core77 about a recent PechaKucha event in London, part of the International Conference on Designing Food and Designing for Food. It was produced by PKN Brussels organizer Alok Nandi, and the photo above reveals the intriguing "Carrot Pavillion."

In his presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 17), he compares the types of mathematicians portrayed by the media vs. the actual mathematicians he deals with in real life.
In today's Presentation of the Day, "On Clouds" from PKN Fairfield Vol. 1, visual artist Mark Petrick goes into great depth on his love affair with clouds.
