Eco-Otome : Innovative Gadget To Cover Up Bathroom Noises

Toilet noises can be embarrassing, especially for women. But what can you do besides repeatedly flushing the toilet? It is a good idea but is extremely wasteful indeed.

So the Japanese came up with this excellent device called Eco-Otome. This tacky plastic cell phone fob emits the sound of running water at the push of a button, meaning that you can now preserve your feminine dignity without wasting a few liters of water in the process.

The sound plays for about 25 seconds and can be stopped by pushing the button and hold it more than 2 seconds.

They also ran repeated tests in order to determine the most appropriate volume. And, to make it even more authentic, they used real water to record the sound rather than reproducing it digitally.

With this great gadget, you can totally get rid of the embarrassing bathroom noises. You can take it with you everywhere and hang it on your handbag, mobile phone or clothes like just another fashion accessory. Sounds great isn't it?

Atlantis, The Palm : A New Luxury Hotel in Dubai

For a glimpse of just what $1.5 billion of hotel looks like, first cross the 300m-long bridge that links mainland Dubai to the extraordinary exercise in land reclamation that is the Palm Jumeirah.

The resort consists of two towers linked by a bridge, with a total of approximately two thousand rooms. There are two monorail stations connecting the resort to the main section of the Palm Jumeirah islands.

The resort contains a giant open-air tank with 65,000 fish, stingrays and other sea creatures and a dolphinarium with more than two dozen bottlenose dolphins flown in, amid controversy, from the Solomon Islands.

It is a hotel with 1729 rooms and 17 restaurants, but the hotel's top floor aims squarely at the ultra-wealthy. A three-bedroom, three-bathroom suite complete with gold-leaf 18-seat dining table is on offer for USD25,000 a night. The cheapest room is at the average rate of USD 650.The hotel was just opened on 24th of September 2008 and be the first to open on The Palm, a man-made island off the coast of the UAE that is shaped like a palm tree. It was touted as one of the emirate's most extravagant hotels to date.

Shanghai's Icon Architecture - REN Building

After the Beijing Olympics, everybody has seen many impressive architectures just like the Bird's Nest Stadium, the Water Cube and on.

The Ren building is a proposal for a hotel, sports and conference center for the “Better City, Better Life” 2010 World Expo in Shanghai. The building is conceived as two buildings merging into one. The two buildings meet in a 1000 room hotel, a building for living.

The first building, emerging from the water, is devoted to the activities of the body, and houses the sports and water culture center. The building becomes the Chinese sign for 'The People', and a recognizable landmark for the World Expo in China.

The building takes its form from the Chinese character for person 人 (”ren”) and combines two buildings (one symbolic of mind and the other symbolic of body). We love the poetic inspiration that reflects both site and cultural sensitivity.
