The Depanneur

BY LEN SENATER
@ VOL 22 ON MAR 19, 2013

It's not easy to be a depanneur, a person who get things fixed, a troubleshooter, a problem solver.

The concept behind Len Senater's "Depanneur" is to create a community-oriented venue in which interesting food things could happen. He wants to provide a legitimate space for all the underground culinaray talents in the city to showcase their talents.

Inspired by Montreal's dinning culture, Len wanted to disentangle quality from luxury, challenging the idea that good dinning experience has to be fancy. In this presentation, he shares his constant battle with the local authority (and neighbour) just to continue his dream.

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.

Colour at the Ontario Science Centre

BY ELGIN CLECKLEY
@ VOL 32 ON MAY 06, 2014

Colour at the Ontario Science is an integral part of our vision since our opening in 1969.  From the three hues in our iconic logo, to use in defining architecture and way finding, colour assists 1 million visitors a year setting the stage for interactives and copy panels in our halls.  Colour changes in response to our needs, but also helps define interactions, resolve questions and enhance the visitor experience. Elgin Cleckley, Senior Exhibit Designer of the Science Centre, takes a quick tour of the Ontario Science Centre discussing the colour histories of the past and how they have evolved into the colour language we use today.

Startups in Space

"Nowadays we have new tech. Everybody has an iPhone and actually these are more powerful than any of the satellites now in space. And thats the idea. We are basically using them produce space stuff that is way more powerful and much less expensive." In Startups in Space from Tokyo Vol. 127, spacecraft developer at Axelspace in Tokyo, Lucas Bremond catches us up on the accomplishments of the space programs of past and present, reminding us that many of historical cosmic triumphs were achieved with less computing power then that of our smartphones. He then turns our imaginations to the future, proposing a new age of space exploration where the playing field has been levelled, the barrier of entry lowered, an exciting new era of new inexpensive tech in space, which we can all potentially participate, and for the benefit of all.
