We here at Tomorrow Daily are always looking for a new way to party with our over-21 friends, so when we heard about "Alcoholic Architecture," we had to tell you all about it. It's an installation that will be open for six months starting July 30th in London, and consists of a gigantic enclosed area full of humidified cocktails inspired by monastery drinks. You breathe in deeply and absorb the drink through your lungs and eyeballs, which is the weirdest way ever to have a drink after work.
An inventor in New Zealand was inspired by the idea behind the Segway as a personal mobility device, so he put a Segway's insides to good use and created an electric wheelchair that's also 100% hands-free (it's controlled by shifting the weight of the user's torso around on the seat). For anyone unable to control their wheelchair with their hands, this is an immensely encouraging prototype, and may give others with limited arm function an easier time getting around.
Lastly, we're terrified of the Skylodge Adventure Suites, which are actually giant glass pods suspended 400 feet in the air and attached to the side of a mountain. Sure, you'll have to travel to Peru to be able to embark on this harrowing excursion, but if you're a thrill-seeker, this type of experience should be right up your alley. We'll be down here on the ground waving at you if you decide to book a room.
