Are you worried about the classic hot smartphone problem? Into overclocking your pocket PC? If you are, you'll be thrilled about Fujitsu's new technology for a liquid-cooled smartphone. It's a bit like putting your car's radiator into your phone—a cool idea even if you probably wouldn't need it.
Modern times have seen the rise and proliferation of architectural media, allowing people to remotely experience spaces and buildings without ever physically entering them. As such, the importance of the architectural image has never been greater.
Opening on January 15 at London’s Sto Werkstatt and organized in conjunction with Arcaid Images, Building Images celebrates the “power and impact of photography on the way we sense and experience spaces.” Described by Arcaid Images co-founder Lynne Bryant as having “long been the means of communicating architecture,” photography is a medium that has grown inseparable from the notion and creation of the architectural image. Learn more and view selected images from the exhibition, after the break.
Adopting a critical stance that explores the possibilities of photography as a means of architectural representation, the exhibition features winning images from the Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards 2014. Building Images celebrates diversity and excellence in four categories - Exteriors, Interiors, Building In Use, and Sense of Place – and documents an expansive selection of architectural forms.
Building Images is free and open to the public until February 26, and will be accompanied by a series of talks and seminars from industry professionals.

Instead of using chemical coatings they used lasers to etch a nanostructure on the metal itself. It will not wear off, like current less effective methods.
