 Ocean Kitchen

Dutch designer Robert Kolenik has combined this kitchen island with a fully functional aquarium.

The large aquarium is topped with an L-shaped slab of Corian that effortlessly lifts up at the press of a button, giving you access to the top of the tank. And while the piece may look minimal, the Ocean Kitchen comes complete with hidden storage that helps keep your space organized. Each aquarium is limited edition and customized based on where it’s installed. For fans of tropical fish, this could be the perfect addition to your home.

Space Origami: NASA’s Foldable Solar Array

When sending things into space, cargo is limited and costs are high. That’s why Brigham Young University researchers and NASA are using origami to develop ways of making solar arrays more compact. The current design allows the array to expand from 9 ft. to a whopping 80 ft. in diameter once it’s deployed in outer space. The array is expected to generate 150 kW of power, a significant increase over the 84 kW currently produced by the International Space Station. The absence of sliding parts in the solar array also decreases the likelihood of malfunction since scientists would only need to launch, deploy and monitor a single system.
