It was at a secret location where junior chess players along with experienced Grand Masters gathered this past weekend. As usual Introductions were casual, trying not to reveal too much about oneself, players acted as though they were oblivious to the real reason they were there. The gates were yet to be opened on a very cloudy Saturday morning the chess payers waited anxiously for the Clocks to be set and for the round robin stage to begin.
Deep thoughts and inner battles of…Continue

Open floor plan interior design is changing the way homes are being built. These days, the only walls you find in a home are the exterior ones and those surrounding the bedrooms and bathrooms. Otherwise, the kitchen, dining room, den, and living room all tend to blend together into one giant common area. This, taken in stark contrast with homes of the past where every floor plan was separated into segments, seems a drastic change. What is it about open floor plans that has captured the…Continue

My sister, four years older than me, has not spoken to me in 12 years. (Of course it is a euphemism for surgically cutting me out of the fibre of her life.) She blames my love for women. She is of the opinion that it is infectious and consequently a threat to her young. I, of course, do not hold such an opinion.
At the outset of the excommunication, birthdays and holidays…Continue

There was a time, not too long ago, when developing a new product was a chore. Tedious processes of designing by hand, and manufacturing multiple pre-versions of the eventual product, meant that great inventions got stuck somewhere between concept and reality.
The advent of computer aided design (CAD) has revolutionised this process so much that it has infiltrated almost every aspect of our lives. Sure, it is easy to…Continue

3D printing has been around for a while but was limited in terms of the size of printing jobs and the materials that could be printed. That’s no longer the case. Entire houses can be printed, food can be manipulated into weird and wonderful art forms, transplantable…Continue
Well, that’s how it seems these days. Everywhere we look there’s another report of the wonders of 3D printing and how it’s poised to change our world.

The wife was awarded a residency in Germany over the December holidays. Everyone shivered at the thought of winter in Europe, but we braved it. Yes, it was a little cold, but it had a beauty of its own. Plus, there were no hordes of silly tourists. Bonus.
