Car Paleontology

This skeleton car was dug up created by auto rental company Sixt for their ad campaign. Apart from the message they promote (“Thanks to Sixt expensive car rentals became extinct”) this peculiar image of the week makes us realize how cars – more and more autonomous, self driving, uncontrollable – are bound to become the animals of the future.

Fake Beach Nautholsvik

Geothermal Beach

A man made beach at the location of Nauthólsvík in Reykjavik, Iceland. The lagoon was build with seawalls combined with white sand. The sea water in the lagoon is artificially heated with hot water, merged with the cold water from the sea. In this way, it is possible to swim in the lagoon all year round, with an average water temperature of 15 – 19 degrees.

The Geothermal beach offers additional facilities, such as outdoor showers, hot tubs, steam bath, sailing school and a small restaurant. Nauthólsvík welcomes around half a million guests every year. A fake seaside, for a real vacation!
