Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has a new collaboration with odm design. It’s a colorful collection of watches labeled the JCDC U.F.O. Bloc Collection.  (4 red yellow blue green color displays light up one by one with sound!)

O.D.M. is a brand of highly designed technical timepieces created for the style conscious consumer.  Their mission is to be “original, dynamic & minimalist” and this philosophy is what inspired our name.  ODM remains true to that with every single watch they design.

Interesting to consider, is the secure living idea. $10 million. Pics & Article via Vivos.

The central theme to all end-of-the-world scenarios is to find shelter underground. The soil of the Earth itself can provide the best shelter for most catastrophes including a pole shift, super volcano eruptions, solar flares, earthquakes, tsunamis, and asteroids, as well as potential for many more manmade devastations such as nuclear bombs, bio terrorism, chemical warfare, and even the return of Planet X (known as Niburu or Nemisis) and the solar disturbances it will cause.

The Vivos complexes will be deep underground, airtight, fully self-contained shelters designed to survive virtually any catastrophe, or threat scenario including natural disasters, a nuclear blast, chemical and biological weapons, or even social-anarchy. Each self contained shelter complex will comfortably accommodate a community of 172 – 200 people, in spacious quarters, for up to 1 year of autonomous survival to ride out the potential events.  Every detail has been considered and planned for.  Members need to only arrive before the facility is sealed and secured.

With so much to consider, is the Sleep Box really the answer for the weary traveler?

Any frequent traveler would probably best understand what I’m trying to put forth here, this cool new architectural concept created by the Russian Arch Group could turn into a life saver for most of the frequent travelers and business men. This is your portal to a session of sound sleep in a city where an accommodation or the possibility of finding an accommodation for a night’s sleep is pretty low.

Designed to be installed at crucial points like the Airports, central public places or any place on the map where finding an accommodation  is really difficult, this  may become the quite usual scene in probably a few years.

Measuring 2mx1, 40mx2, 30m in dimensions, this may sound a bit compact but believe me there is enough space inside to fit an Elephant! The cool “Sleep Cell” ( as I would like to call it) comes custom fitted with a Bed, Linen, Proper Ventilation System, Alarm, LCD T.V, Wi-Fi, space for your laptop and rechargeable phones and finally a cupboard under the bed to store your luggage in!

The payments to rent these Sleep Cells are made at the Airport Terminal or the respective offices who then provide the client with an electronic key that can be purchased for as small as a 15 minute power nap to all the hours you need.
