Alongside the terrible death ray revelation, I read of a $10 million dollar prize for winning the space race.
Yes, we now have a race to privately fund human space exploration. They reckon it will take less than a year for the winner to "launch people to the edge of space and bring them back safely twice within a two week period".
Maybe i'll try and win that so I can escape the death ray, and make a quick 10 mill on the side.
I'm an Australian designer who specialises in digital and cultural work. Most of my career thus far has been on the web, but I'm excited that it's starting to creep out into the real world.
I am the founder of Museum in a Box, making interactive museum objects with simple, fun tech, for wide-as-possible distribution, and I own a company called Good, Form & Spectacle, making design in service to cultural heritage for clients like The British Museum, MoMA, and the Wellcome Trust.
