That’s Interesting 15.08.2019

From intergalactic luggage to the world’s most eye-catching bookstore, here are some things that made us say ‘That’s Interesting’ in the studio this week.

Practically impossible

Adding to the ever-growing industry of meat-free alternatives, Burger King is trailing their new ‘Impossible Whopper’ in selected stores. Be warned strict veggies, this product is currently being cooked along-side their meat options so there is risk of cross-contamination. For the more flexitarian type, this new option promises to be as tasty (if not more) than their standard options, and flame grilled to perfection.

Amongst the stars

It’s time to rethink everything you know about luggage. As Space tourism continues to grow, designers are taking steps to imagine what these intergalactic travellers will need. Horizn studio, along with the innovative young astronaut Alyssa Carson, have drafted a design for the first purpose-built space travel luggage. The luggage would not only come with some incredible features such as a built-in touch screen, an electromagnetic base and fingerprint recognition, is would also be made with a graphene-enhanced carbon fibre structure, making it the perfect practical accessory for intersallar travel.

Part scent. Part science.

Smoker or not, most of us can pick out the smell of Cannabis a mile away. It’s pretty distinctive. For those wishing to smoke without being so conspicuous, “Veil’ is a new ‘weed smoke odour eliminating spray’ designed to break down the cannabis molecules in the air and make the scent virtually undetectable. Best of all? It’s non-toxic and eco-friendly too.

Creating a perplexing myriad of bookcases with it’s unusual architectural design and mirrored ceiling, this is not a place to be forgotten (it might be a great place to get lost in, though). Along with it’s symmetric main hall, there’s also rooms with interesting ‘lamp bookshelves’, a cosy reading corner and an idyllic children room.
