Overhead Cat Playgrounds

German design company Goldtatze (Gold Paw) specializes in transforming ordinary rooms into overhead playgrounds for cats. By adding wooden bridges, hammocks, scratching posts, and even little dens for cats to hide out in, each site-specific installation offers playful felines plenty of room for adventurous activity and their much needed catnaps.

With Goldtatze’s installations, cat owners are given more room for their own furniture while allowing their pets to roam freely on their unique playground. The designed wall and ceiling fixtures also add an element of childhood excitement. The cat-sized architectural additions seem like a year-round dose of summer camp for the curious pets. They’re able to trapeze across the room, climbing the walls and scurrying across suspended bridges, while their owners man the territory below.

“Concerning Violence” Narrated by Lauryn Hill

The powerful new film from Göran Hugo Olsson, director of The Black Power Mixtape, is a fresh and bold visual narrative, documenting the liberation from colonial rule in the ‘60s and ‘70s in Africa. Working with recently discovered archival footage, the film depicts some of the most daring moments ever captured during the anti-colonialist struggle. Drawn from Frantz Fanon’s still-evocative and searing text “The Wretched of the Earth” and narrated by the socially engaged singer Lauryn Hill, CONCERNING VIOLENCE is a striking and emotionally resonant cinematic essay, which confronts the dehumanizing mechanisms of colonialism of the past to illuminate the urgent need for change in the present.

Marco Annunziata: Welcome to the Age of the Industrial Internet

Everyone’s talking about the “Internet of Things,” but what exactly does that mean for our future? In this thoughtful talk, economist Marco Annunziata looks at how technology is transforming the industrial sector, creating machines that can see, feel, sense and react — so they can be operated far more efficiently. Think: airplane parts that send an alert when they need to be serviced, or wind turbines that communicate with one another to generate more electricity. It’s a future with exciting implications for us all. — TED
